It seems one can’t go a day without hearing, reading or seeing a story about Plastic Surgery and how it affects our lives. As its popularity grows more and more people are wanting it and with that more “practitioners are practicing plastic surgery.
This creates many problems because many of these practitioners are NOT plastic surgeons and they practice in non accredited facilities. In Australia they are trying to put the lid on unqualified people doing Plastic Surgery as well as where they perform it.
Medical tourism is popular but unfortunately most people decide to travel abroad based on one reason – cost. Many countries do not have the same standards as we have in the United States so as Australia fights to gain control of this we too in America face many challenges as well. Buyers need to be SMART consumers – choice should be based on more that dollar signs.
