Why is plastic surgery affordable in Turkey
Nowadays, both men and women are taking well care of themselves to look younger by taking “precautions” as investing money on aesthetic procedures. This trend, naturally, has created a great marketplace for aesthetic procedures.
Another reason of the higher demand for plastic surgeries is radically increasing use of social media. With widely used smartphones, everyone has started to take selfies which brought a critical and judgemental aspect. Even though photo editing apps can provide a better appearance, they cannot be a permanent solution! Those who are not satisfied with these photo edits would like to benefit from plastic surgeries.
The demand for plastic surgery is rapidly increasing worldwide. Turkey has become one of the most preferred countries in terms of plastic surgeries thanks to its highly developed health system, modern and technological hospitals and affordable prices. In Turkey and in the rest of the world, Breast Augmentation, Liposuction, BBL, Rhinoplasty and Abdominoplasy are mostly preferred by women while Hair Transplant, Rhinoplasty and Gynecomastia surgeries are preferred by men.
Each day, the number of international patients that come to Turkey to undergo a plastic surgery is increasing. The fact that so many plastic surgeries are performed in Turkey has allowed Turkish surgeons’ fame to be known worldwide. Other very important factor of the increase in Turkey’s fame is affordable prices and advantages. In other countries, diagnosing, treating and performing surgeries with the same facilities as Turkey requires much bigger budgets. For example, a patient that chooses Turkey to undergo a Rhinoplasty surgery is likely to pay one third of the price in his/her own country.
If more than one plastic surgeries are combined, this price advantage is getting bigger as well. Combining different surgeries allow patients to have Hair Transplant and Nose Job, Butt Lift and Liposuction or Facelift and Eyelid Surgery at once and this provides a great opportunity of prices.
One of the major reasons of Turkey’s being affordable is the currency differences. While 1USD is worth nearly 7TL, 1EUR is nearly 8TL. For this reason, international patients can have plastic surgeries for very reasonable prices in Turkey.
Thanks to Turkey’s price advantage, high quality service and happy patients, medical tourism is getting bigger each and every year. Many patients come to Turkey to undergo plastic surgeries from all around the world such as Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Norway, Austria, Belgium, Sweden, Egypt, Russia, Georgia, United Arab Emirates and more.
