Plastic Surgery isn’t what it used to be. In the past plastic surgery and most forms of cosmetic enhancement meant walking into a Park Avenue office, or meeting a surgeon that was part of the Beverly Hills elite. But in this day and age, with cosmetic surgery being far more accessible more and more individuals are traveling to cities around the country, making different cities hubs for cosmetic surgery.
At Goals Plastic Surgery they have managed to turn New York City into an almost brand new destination for aesthetic enhancement surgeries. For years New Yorkers would venture off to places like the Dominican Republic and even Miami, Florida – in search of the best prices, and the best surgeons. For most people what’s not to love? Flying to an exotic location for a few days, relaxing in a lush resort-like community, and coming home with a tan and a new set of breasts, or a few inches off your waist!
Despite New York’s propensity for cold weather, sometimes unseasonably warm summers, and the overall high cost of a trip to New York City, Goals Plastic Surgery has managed to achieve a strong nationwide following that is willing to travel to NYC for their surgeries. The benefits offered by Goals Plastic Surgery and their staff are likely the reason many choose to make the trip. They generally offer their out-of-town clients, board at their exclusive Upper Manhattan guest house, located only 3 blocks from their main office. These traveling clients are also provided with free transportation, meals, and almost round the clock care if needed. This is especially beneficial for those Goals Plastic Surgery patients who are post-procedure recovering from their surgery.
Regardless if you decide to take Goals Plastic Surgery up on their offer of room and board and make the trip out to New York City, or if you decide to go abroad there are the number of things you must make sure of, especially when traveling to another, less-developed country.
• Make Sure of Your Surgeon’s Credentials
While a number of highly qualified surgeons often operate practices in different countries, in an effort to expand or make more money; the opposite is also true. Many surgeons operating in different countries do this because they simply lost their license in the US or may have never even had it. Dr. V at Goals Plastic Surgery always recommends that patients do as much research as possible on their doctors, read reviews, and look up medical board information.
• Make Sure of Sanitary Standards
The benefit of going to Goals Plastic Surgery in NYC is that you know the operating room standards are at the highest degree, the same may not always be the case abroad. Depending on which country you’re in, the standards for operating rooms might be a lot more lax, make sure you only choose the practices with high standards that are up to those in the US.
• Traveling Can Be Dangerous After Surgery
Flying too soon after certain surgeries can cause huge issues with altitude. Make sure to check with your doctor or book enough time post-procedure to recover from that initial stage.
• Complications Are Hard to Address
Depending on what country you might be in if complications arise as a result of your surgical procedure – doctors may not have the necessary equipment, or the medical training to address these possible surgical issues on the fly. While a practice like Goals Plastic Surgery the facilities and proximity to NYC hospitals make it much easier to address possible issues.
• Language Barriers
Unless you truly speak the language and have an understanding of medical terms in that language there will always be some type of miscommunications.
