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!
