Pairing Medical Procedures & Spa Treatments with Travel

Plastic surgery while vacationing? No problem with medical tourism

Always wondered how you'd look with Jennifer Aniston's nose? Boobs need a pick-me-up? If you've decided to trade your (tired, overweight, insert appropriate choice here) for a sleek, new model, Fly2Doc.com is online to help.

Traveling abroad for medical treatments is booming business - and with good reason. The World Health Farwell to Cellulite!Farwell to Cellulite!Organization ranked almost 200 countries for their health care services and cost. Portugal (12th place) and Spain (8th place) beat out the United States (38th place).


It's hard to argue with 5-star luxury and white sandy beaches to help you recuperate and, of course, a private room (with your own bathroom!) during your hospital stay. But it's more than that. Medical procedures in many countries are available at a fraction of what you'd pay in the US, some as little as half the cost.

But it's still plastic surgery and even sangria, sun and siestas can only embellish what you already have. "Plastic surgery cannot promise more than what state-of-the-art techniques can offer," says New York cosmetic surgeon Dr. Mauro Romita. "A good result can only deliver a significantly improved version of yourself."

I like that. Me, only better.

If you're considering pairing your tummy tuck with a tour through Spain, Fly2Doc.com can answer your questions and price out your adventure.

Thanks for the information and the tip. Nice site with good design. I found out a lot of information on medical tourism.

great info.

Yuk misses the point. After you figure the enormous savings the vacation is free and a relaxing way to recuperate. You probably save enough to go back again to show off your new nose, or boobs or whatever.

Yuk - what a way to ruin a vacation. Can you imagine spending thousands of dollars to lie on the beach and recover from some sort of surgery? If I'm going to lie on the beach, I want to strap on my bikini and drink maragritas all day - not worry about when to take my dose of antibiotics!

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
