Plastic Surgery Costa Rica
If you’re considering cosmetic plastic surgery, Costa Rica is a place you might be thinking about having it done.
Discuss this idea with your own physician first, of course. Your doctor will be able to advise you about the risks and benefits of traveling to a foreign country for elective surgery. Clearly, plastic surgery in Costa Rica is far less costly than in the US. Costa Rica has a modern, well-regulated medical system, with its own medical specialty certification boards. That means you have a way to verify credentials, at a minimum. You may also want to ask a plastic surgeon for references (former patients) you can contact, prior to scheduling your trip.
One advantage to having plastic surgery in Costa Rica is that it’s a beautiful place to recuperate. You don’t know anyone there; so if you want to go on an excursion or lie on the beach with some bandages or bruises, who cares? Let people stare if they want; you’ll be enjoying yourself regardless.
Do consult with at least one US or UK doctor about your plans. All surgery has risks, and you should get a disinterested opinion and thoughtful, professional advice before deciding to proceed with cosmetic surgery of any kind.
