There are different motivations as to why people would even consider to travel to a foreign country for any type of surgery, let alone for Cosmetic Surgery.
After spending the better part of the past eight years consulting with potential Medical Tourism candidates, I wish to share some of their questions and concerns.
What kind of education do the Doctors in Peru receive?
Peruvian Doctors attend Medical School for the same amount of time as their counterparts in the USA do, and their entrance requirements are equal. Many of the Doctors that work for our Clinic also receive additional training at Seminars and Classes held all over the world. We have been presenters as well as students at some of the most prestigious Medical Conferences in places such as Paris France, Barcelona Spain, Florence Italy, Miami Florida, Buenos Aires Argentina among many others.
If the cost of a procedure is cheaper, then it must be substandard.
Definitely not so. There are many factors that influence the cost of Surgery. If you think of making a list of each item that needs to be included in the cost of any procedure, it may make your head spin, but we will try to simplify it here. Physical location, wages, supplies, equipment, insurance, taxes and of course profit. In short, many parts here are on a much different scale than in the USA, for instance, we buy Implants for Breast procedures direct from the European Manufacturer, not a third party that marks it up 300% (significant amount, in USA can add several thousand dollars), labor costs are significantly lower, malpractice insurance premiums do not exist (can add as much as 30% to any procedure) even medical supplies from the same manufacturer are cheaper. I do not understand this part in its entirety, but if you were to compare prices from companies in the USA such as Johnson, and Johnson, Merck, Shearing Plough, etc, you will see that they sell the same products products in Latin America that are much cheaper than in the United States.(watch all of the American tourists snap up medicine in Mexico) When you add this all up you can see why it is possible to perform a similar surgery at nearly one third the cost that it would be in the USA.
What kind of experience do you have?
We have over 30 years experience, with more than 30,000 safe patient surgeries completed. Our staff consists of teams of specialists, ranging from Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, General Surgeons, and various medical specialists and technicians.
How long will it take me to get there, and where can I stay?
Lima Peru, is only five and a half hour flight from Miami. There are a variety of hotels, apartments, etc. in all comfort and price ranges.
Who are your typical Clients?
We have been seeing patients from all over the world, with many of them coming from the United States, Europe, Australia, and Asia. Women of all ages, as well as Men have found comfort in correcting imperfections in their physical characteristics.
Which procedures are your most popular?
Liposuction of all areas, Breast Implants, Breast Reduction, Nose Jobs, Face lifts, Tummy Tucks, Brazilian Butt Lift, Facial fillers, Botox.
Can I have an online consultation before making a decision, or do I have to come to Lima first?
we can speak on the telephone, email, Skype, FaceTime, whichever method is easiest for you, so that we nay discuss the best options for you. You can find out the final costs of your surgery before you make your plans to travel.
