Whether it is Colombia, Mexico, or the Dominican Republic, traveling across borders for surgery is known as “medical tourism,” and as a practicing physician and surgeon, I just don’t get it.  In a perfect world, all my patients would live next door to me at least for the early recovery in their surgeries.

Medical tourism refers to the practice of people leaving their own country to seek medical treatment abroad. Why are so many people pursuing plastic surgery overseas? Because it’s “cheaper” there.  In the United States, insurance companies do not cover cosmetic or plastic surgery procedures, so people look for ways to cut costs.

cheap plastic surgery

A 33-year-old woman, who wanted to get a tummy tuck, decided to travel to the Dominican Republic instead of going to a plastic surgeon close to home. Why?
