Thank you for your question! I will say right now that this does not sound like a good idea! Remember when it comes to price, cheaper is not always better. Best of luck!

Going over sees for surgery is never a good idea. You will get the best care and surgeons in the USA.
I must echo Dr. Lacerna-Kimbrells comment. Going overseas for surgery is, at best, a gamble. If you have any kind of complication, your cost saving gambit will backfire on you, costing money, and quite possibly, your health. If you require any revision (breast augmentation with lift has the highest revision rate of any cosmetic surgical procedure), you will pay full fee to a local,surgeon IF you can find one who will see you. I would think again on your plan.
Unfortunately there is no for sure time limit for you to be completely healed after surgery. Going over seas makes this process more difficult because as you already know, local surgeons will likely not treat you or it can be very costly for them to do so.
Thank you for your question and good luck!
