Five benefits of getting plastic surgery abroad.

Five Benefits of getting plastic surgery abroad.

Plastic surgery is a big decision, and it’s important to weigh all of the pros and cons before making a final decision. If you’re on the fence about getting plastic surgery, consider the benefits of getting your cosmetic surgery in Costa Rica and more specifically at Universal Plastic Surgery in San José.

Here are the five best benefits of getting plastic surgery abroad:

1. You’ll save money.

One of the biggest benefits of getting plastic surgery outside of the US/Canada is that you’ll save money. In the United States, the average cost of a plastic surgery procedure is $6,000. However, the average cost of a plastic surgery procedure in Costa Rica is close to half of that. Those are huge savings that you can enjoy as part of your tropical vacation, touring the country for a week.

2. You’ll have access to world-class surgeons.

Another benefit of getting surgery at Universal Plastic Surgery is that you’ll have access to world-class surgeons. It is often believed that in the United States, the quality of your surgical procedure would be higher. But please consider that plastic surgery is a universal practice pioneered outside of the US. Dr. Carlos A. Centeno and Dr. Madelein Centeno, are both considered world-class, internationally-trained surgeons. Dr. Carlos Centeno is not only a plastic surgeon, but for years has worked as a leading professor of micro-surgery. Dr. Madelein Centeno is one of the few super micro-surgeons in the continent, having studied directly under Dr. Isao Koshima’s, microsurgery’s biggest advocate since 1990 in Japan.

3. You’ll have an opportunity to recover while vacationing

When having a plastic surgery procedure, it is best that you abstain from your regular work in order to properly heal. But for some people it is easier to take a break if they are in a completely different environment, far from their day-to-day distractions. When receiving surgery at Universal Plastic Surgery, you’ll be able to enjoy all that Costa Rica has to offer, the beautiful scenery, the restaurants and the beaches making your recovery much more pleasant.

4. You’ll have a higher degree of privacy

For some patients, especially those under media scrutiny, like actors and models, having a higher degree of freedom when moving to and from the surgery clinic can become important. In Costa Rica, you may find a new degree of privacy in your procedure. That way, you can focus in your recovery and yourself, rather than why are there so many cameras already out there.

5. You’ll be receiving personalized care and attention.

Especially in the United States, often medical care comes at a very high cost, both to the patient and the doctor. Therefore the ability to treat patients with personal attention and extra time is often difficult if not impossible. At Universal Plastic Surgery you won’t need to jump through hoops to speak directly with your surgeon, to ask questions and most importantly to learn about your surgery.
