Beware of Medical Tourism for Plastic Surgery

Medical tourism is a risky business. When you leave our country to seek plastic surgery treatments in less developed nations or those with fewer oversights, you are placing both your safety and satisfaction at risk. You should only trust your procedure to a board-certified plastic surgeon who performs procedures in accredited surgical facilities. This helps guard your health and works to ensure your results provide ultimate satisfaction.

If you are looking for a board-certified plastic surgeon in Virginia, please contact the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation with Dr. Eric Desman.

More than Money

A simple internet search can pull up hundreds of well-documented cases of medical tourism gone wrong. This is because the standards of care in many nations are nowhere near that to which our country’s surgeons must adhere. While it is true that having a body or facial plastic surgery procedure performed in another country can be initially less expensive monetarily, the danger you place yourself in and the high risk of unsatisfactory results are simply not worth it.

It is important to remember that plastic surgery is both an art and a science, and your decision to undergo a procedure must be based on more than procedural costs. Dr. Desman offers a range of affordable financing options which we would be happy to discuss in greater detail during your initial consultation.
