One of the main things to keep in mind regarding medical tourism is how difficult it may be to see or even contact your doctor after surgery. Follow-up appointments are extremely important. When surgery is performed internationally, patients either miss post-operative appointments or have to stay in the area for an extended period of time. When you have surgery closer to home, you can more easily attend these appointments and visit your surgeon if any other problems or concerns arise. Many surgeons like myself will revise their own work at no additional charge except for anesthesia fees or surgical venue fees.
Liposuction can be effective for people who have isolated areas of fat that are resistant to a healthy diet and exercise. Ideal candidates are close to their desired weight and have good skin tone and elasticity. As plasticsurgeryinfo.ca explains, liposuction is not intended to be used for weight loss, but is instead meant to remove pockets of fat that cannot be removed otherwise.
Although cost is certainly an important factor when it comes to deciding where to have a nose job, making sure you find the right surgeon should be at the top of your list of needs. After you do your online research or talk to friends who have had the same or a similar procedure, schedule a consultation with your top choices. At the consultation, come prepared with questions to address all of your concerns and ensure that your needs will be met.  Some questions to ask include:
Doctors have recently developed a non-surgical nose job, using dermal fillers to enhance the shape of the nose in one 15-minute treatment. By injecting fillers, such as Radiesse® or Restylane®, the doctor can correct minor asymmetry and make other changes. However, if you are looking for more dramatic results, or if you require reduction rhinoplasty, surgery is the only option. Additionally, a non-surgical nose job cannot treat a deviated septum or other breathing issues. While nasal strips can enhance your breathing, surgery is the only way to permanently treat these conditions.

The geographic location of the surgeon's practice can greatly affect the cost of rhinoplasty. More affluent cities and neighborhoods, such as Manhattan and Los Angeles, are plastic surgery hubs where some of the best surgeons in the world practice. Meanwhile, these areas also have a higher cost of living, which means higher overhead costs (rent, staff wages, utilities), and that translates to a higher overall price of rhinoplasty.


Choosing a liposuction surgeon based on the lowest price might ultimately be the most expensive choice, If the initial cosmetic results are so bad that another surgeon must be paid to repair the work of the first liposuction surgeon. Among the most common undesirable outcomes of liposuction are 1) incomplete liposuction with very little evidence that liposuction was actually done, 2) excessive liposuction producing an unnatural or disfigured appearance, 3) irregular and uneven results with unsightly depressions in the skin, and 4) large scars that reveal that the patient has had liposuction. Caveat emptor (Buyer beware).
The most common reason for patients to undergo rhinoplasty surgery is to improve the appearance of their nose. Many individuals feel that the size or shape does not match the rest of their facial features, and they choose surgery to bring a harmonious balance to the face. During rhinoplasty, changes can be made to the bridge, tip, and nostrils, making nose reshaping a versatile procedure. Choosing a qualified surgeon to perform rhinoplasty surgery will ensure that patients receive the most beneficial outcome. Among the aesthetic rhinoplasty benefits are:
Thank you for your question.  This is a difficult question to answer because there is not a set price for liposuction.  Price should not be your determining factor for choosing who does your procedure.  Your first question should be is this individual properly trained?  Are they a board certified plastic surgeon?  How many of these procedures do they do?  Also, what is the technique that they are going to use?  Prices are usually determined by the location that you want treated and the facility you are having the surgery.  We do have a policy of giving larger discounts when there are multiple areas being treated at the same time. Please remember higher prices do not always equal a better result, but the lowest price may not be the best decision either.  This is a decision that should be based on trust and experience.
Tobacco use slows blood flow throughout the body. Because oxygen cannot reach the incision sites very quickly, smokers may face a longer recovery and a higher risk of infection and unfavorable scarring. Although smokers are not automatically disqualified from rhinoplasty, they should quit the habit for at least two weeks before and two weeks after the surgery.
Secondary rhinoplasty differs from the primary procedure in that it may require cartilage or bone grafting. If too much tissue or bone was removed in the first surgery, the doctor will need to replace this in order to achieve the desired look. Often, cartilage is taken from the ear or other areas of the nose. In rare cases, it is harvested from a rib, in what is known as a costal cartilage graft.
At the same time, patients will also need to avoid certain foods and supplements, which could slow healing and cause surgical complications. In particular, patients should steer clear of vitamin E supplements, ginger, gingko, and ginseng. Some homeopathic and herbal supplements can cause complications with anesthesia, so patients should check with their doctors before taking additional nutrition.

A rhinoplasty reshapes your nose, changes the shape of your nostrils, removes a bump or corrects an injury to the bridge of your nose, or addresses other issues, such as breathing problems. In some cases, people choose to have a nose job in order to correct a defect in the nose that makes it difficult to breathe. In short, a good nose job is one that achieves your personal vision for the surgery and doesn’t require additional procedures.
With modern technology, patients can actually get a picture of the results of their rhinoplasty surgery. Digital imaging technology allows surgeons to construct 3-D virtual models of a patient's face and the future appearance. It is important to note, however, that while this 3D model will serve as a guide for the surgeon, there is no guarantee that the nose job will yield those precise results.
That being said, the regulations per US state, if considering to undergo a BBL there, impose different costs on the surgical facility that needs to be charged to patients. However, in densely populated areas with many plastic surgeons, whose surgical facilities are in particularly close proximity, the operating room charges don't vary that much within these areas. Therefore, if the majority of local operating rooms charge $500/hour and a surgeon is charging half that much, it should raise concerns that something is not being done at the facility; something that might compromise the safety of the procedure.
Apart from the plastic surgery itself, the patient would also need to consider extra costs that are not included in the price quote they receive. These can comprise of the cost of prescription drugs the patient may need to take, the surgical garments required for after the surgery, and the costs of medical tests if necessary, among others. It should be noted, though, that some plastic doctors exclude the anaesthesiologist's fee and operating room charges from their quote, so it is always recommended to read the small letters or ask what's included in the offered package so you can have the right overall cost estimate for the Brazilian buttock augmentation.
