Argentina has earned an international reputation as an exotic vacation destination. Increasing numbers of tourists are now seeking medical treatments while on vacation in Argentina, especially plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is popular amongst the locals as well – in Argentina, one in 30 people reportedly have undergone some cosmetic surgery. Now patients from the U.S. and UK are finding the medical treatments they are looking for, at a substantial savings.
Surgeons in Argentina are known as some of the top providers in the world. Progressive medical conferences and symposia are frequently held in Argentina. With cutting-edge techniques, and low prices (abdominal liposuction will cost around $1,000, compared with $3,000 or more in the U.S.), Argentina is gaining ground quickly in the medical tourism field. Boutique clinic Plenitas is known for both plastic surgery and dental work.
Argentina is home to many places of beauty, waterfalls, beaches, forests, mountains, and lakes. Rich culture, with exotic foods and music, draws foreigners from all over the world.
