Male Voice: There this phenomenon of plastic surgery tourism which basically means going overseas to have surgery at a discounted rate. It's a big deal in the UK where people will go to Eastern Europe. In North America, we might go to South America or to Asia. It can be very compelling because the savings are very significant.

The real issue has to do with a couple of things. One is long-term follow-up care with breast implants in particular. If you just go to any day on the Real Self site, you'll see dozens of questions about problems women have had with implants and it's almost always the best idea to go back to your surgeon and just say, "What do you think? What can we do about this?"

If your surgeon is halfway around the world, you don't really have that opportunity and you may end up spending more money in the long run. The other thing just has to do with long travel after a major surgery. That can increase the risk of certain things like blood clots and significant complications.
