Cosmetic Surgery in Colombia

One of the most popular reasons to visit Colombia, surprisingly, is plastic surgery. Partly because in Colombia, like Brazil and Argentina, there’s less of a stigma in getting plastic surgery, and partly because the industry is relatively cheap and very safe, Colombia boasts a burgeoning cosmetic surgery industry.

Colombia has a reputation as one of the best countries for cosmetic surgery and medical care in general. Standards are exceptionally high since most medics receive their education abroad and bring their expertise back to Colombia.

Though getting surgery abroad does entail risks (for example, lack of information and lack of legal support should anything go wrong), many people opt for ‘surgery packages’ in Colombia, which entails transport, accommodation and, of course, the surgery itself. Operations that are very popular in Colombia include dental surgery, eye surgery, breast surgery and, rapidly gaining popularity, buttock surgery. If you walk around the streets of Medellín you’re bound to see several women who have been the recipients of such surgery, such is the popularity of the industry in Colombia.

All in all the treatment in Colombia can be up to 70% cheaper than in the States or Europe, which easily covers the flight, the accommodation and other costs you will incur. Plus you get to visit one of the most vibrant and colorful countries in the world.

To build and maintain a surgery is much cheaper and doctors and nurses are paid roughly 20% less than they are in the States. This in turn makes their services much cheaper for you. The same quality of practice and education, however, goes into the surgery.

Through various sources we’ve come to believe that cosmetic surgery here is second-to-none and, for those trying to keep the budget down, we recommend Colombia for your work. Do, however, exercise a great deal of caution. Doing research on the internet can only allow you so much confidence. Make phonecalls, read up on your prospective surgeon extensively and, importantly, try to get recommendations.

=> The best cities for you to visit are Medellín, Cali and Bogotá, although the popularity of cosmetic surgery in the Coffee Region as a whole makes it a reliable option.
