Tourism Plastic Surgery
The appeal of a financial bargain has many people sold on tourism plastic surgery.

Heading to another country for an inexpensive nip and tuck may sound like a great plan, but there are definitely risks involved.

Licensing is not the same for plastic surgeons in every country, so you may not get someone with appropriate training as your surgeon. United States laws do not apply to surgeons elsewhere, so you won’t have legal protection if anything happens.

There is also greater risk for complications if you are traveling after surgery. You might wind up spending more time and money getting botched surgery corrected when you return home.

Listen in as Dr. Robert Cohen shares what you need to know about tourism plastic surgery.
