Medical Tourism, where patients travel abroad for medical care, has grown rapidly over the last few years, especially in the area of cosmetic surgery. This is due to high costs and long waiting lists in more established areas sending a new “wave” of patients to far-off sandy beaches in beautiful exotic locations. The key to this “trend” is not just the promise of relaxation and leisure that these countries offer, but also the dramatic increase in modern technology, medical skills and sense of professionalism that they guarantee.
