There’s been a boom in so-called “nip-tuck holidays” in countries like Thailand, India, Borneo, Sri Lanka and Malaysia, where they offer pool side vacations, with minimal recovery time. The spa’s  are presented as being 5 star hotels, and affordable. But, is that really the case?

In this link a corrective surgeon says that 20- 30% of people who go overseas for plastic surgery need corrective surgery when they return home.

Many cosmetic surgery holiday locations are in the third world and lack health care regulations and resources. Patients are often left alone to recover with little to no assistance, often times putting their lives in jeopardy.

Many women who end up overseas for these procedures, often are taken by the advertisements that promise a holiday in a beautiful hotel.

  • In this link a woman named “Tyra” fell for a holiday in Thiland. She wanted a flat tummy, slimmer thighs, and fuller breasts. In Australia, the surgeries would have set her back about $36,000 – but in Thailand, she could get the lot for around $10,000. What was sold on the website, and what she experienced in person were two totally different things. When she arrived, she sat down with 60 other persons, and had to pay for the entire procedure before she had seen the doctor. When the doctor did see her, it was for 5 minutes, and he didn’t speak English. She felt as though she wasn’t clear what she wanted, but went ahead with the procedure because she came a long way, and already paid for it. In the end, the surgeon botched every single procedure. After her complaints, the company responded that they weren’t legally bound to pay for any corrective surgery, because the procedures were done overseas.

The Nassau University Medical Center in New York distributed a 15-question survey by e-mail to 2,000 active members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons . They found among the corrective procedures, 80.4% were from patients who had travelled abroad.  More than half of the patients required multiple corrective operations, and the largest percentage of reported complications (31%) was a result of infection.  83.9% of the doctors reported that their patients  admitted seeing a non professional surgeon.

Here is what many women find going overseas:

Facelifts Are Cheap, They Lift The Skin But Not The Muscles

Overseas Cosmetic Companies Don’t Guarantee Their Work

 Infections Reveal Themselves After Arriving Home

  • Fast forward a few weeks, after my return home, I became very, very ill with an unexplained infection in my nose. This infection remained for six months and I was on the strongest medication my body could handle, plus under the care of a top ENT Specialist in Perth. Long story short, something had been left in my nose (foreign object) which had become infected and made me constantly ill.”  here
