How to get an hourglass appearance.
The surgical techniques are the same in all countries and the body types vary only slightly in different groups of people. However, the patients that are shown as examples of a surgeon's work will vary greatly because the surgeon wants to represent his work to appeal to a certain sub-group of patients. What you recognize as differing results between countries may be explained by the marketing efforts of surgeons from these countries. I recommend that you discuss your preferences and concerns with your local plastic surgeon. Follow-up care can be just as important as the surgery itself. You really should schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area.

The US certainly has an abundance of qualified, board certifeid plastic surgeons who can give you an excellent result.. No need to travel to a foreign country where standards could be sub-par/unregulated and increase your risks of complications.
