Are you considering having plastic surgery in the Dominican Republic? If so, it’s a great idea. Not only can you achieve the look you’ve been craving, but you can do it for a fraction of the cost that you’ll pay in the United States.
Many articles online warn Americans about travelling for plastic surgery. They report that having plastic surgery in places like the Dominican Republic is dangerous. These articles are often written by medical professionals or people in the plastic surgery industry in the United States. Their goal is to frighten Americans, so they won’t go to other countries for plastic surgery because they lose money when they do.
Having plastic surgery in the Dominican Republic is no more dangerous than it is having it in the United States. Yes, there are inexperienced plastic surgeons in the Dominican Republic, but there are inexperienced plastic surgeons in the United States. This is why it’s necessary to research plastic surgeons for your surgery.
The best way to do this is to look online for different plastic surgeons in the Dominican Republic. You will find a long list of them, and then you can start to look into each one individually.
The first thing you should do is call the doctor’s office. You will get a feel for how they treat their patients when they answer the phone. Many of the plastic surgeon offices have an English-speaking person to help people just like you get the surgery they want and need. They will know to transfer you to that person as soon as they hear you speak English.
Feel free to ask all of the questions you have on your mind when you speak to that person. Since you are doing research on the plastic surgeon, ask if they have before and after images of their patients and if you’re able to call any of their past patients to ask about their experience. Many of them will already have people they can refer you to because they know Americans will ask.
You can often find reviews for plastic surgeons online as well, so look for those. Just be careful when you see one or two negative reviews. Just like in the United States, plastic surgeons can’t make every single person happy. Simply look to see if the plastic surgeons have many other positive reviews, and that will help you see that it’s just a person or two who may be hard to please.
After You Find Your Plastic Surgeon
After you find your plastic surgeon, it’s important to plan how you will recover. While you could stay in a hotel, it’s probably not a good idea.
