Ask your plastic surgeon about cosmetic complications insurance

This would be a good question to ask your surgeon as I am sure this will vary from country to country.

Insurance for overseas plastic surgery

+1

There is an insurance program that is intended to cover complications from overseas surgery, but I believe it is the surgeon who would make it available. It is a program affiliated with the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS.org). I would suggest that you confirm that your surgeon is a member of ISAPS and ask about coverage. Dealing with potential complications is only one of the issues related to traveling out of country for surgery.

Some plastic surgeons have purchased insurance to cover complications should they occur in their own patients. You can look for surgeon who carries his coverage.
