South Korea officials announced in March of 2016 that any non-native getting plastic surgery in the country will be reimbursed for any taxes paid for their procedure. On the surface, this may sound like a reason to consider traveling to South Korea for plastic surgery, but experts urge men and women considering taking advantage of “medical tourism” to think twice.

The Dangers of Medical Tourism

Although it can seem enticing, medical tourism can pose health concerns that may outweigh the potential financial benefits. Medical tourism is exactly what it sounds like—people traveling to another country for the purpose of receiving specific medical treatment. But this can become a very dangerous problem, especially when surgical procedures are involved.

When shopping around for a breast augmentation or other plastic surgery procedure, getting the lowest price may not always be the best idea. Instead, the safety and effectiveness of your surgery should be at the top of your priority list.

The Importance of Choosing a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

If the price of a cosmetic procedure in another country sounds too good to be true, it probably is. While the cost may be lower, the quality of your experience and even your safety will likely suffer. If you’re considering getting plastic surgery, the last thing you want to sacrifice is your health and the quality of your results. That’s why choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon who has your best interests in mind is such an important first step to achieving your desired look.
