Get the ultimate Brazilian in Latin America. Actually this might be why Latin women look so good. Get a little helping hand by cosmetic surgery to teeth or body parts in Costa Rica, Brazil or Venezuela. In Panama and Cuba you can have your teeth worked on and Mexico does just about anything.

  1. Brazil

    You’ll look almost as stunning as the local women after the cosmetic surgery treatments here. Although perhaps the reason the locals look so good is because they get a helping hand, in any case it’s easy promotion for foreigners needing a bit of a lift. Have a treatment in Rio and then enjoy the attractions afterwards.

  2. Costa Rica

    This is a destination that has long been known for its natural beauty and now increasingly, for its medical and dental services. Cosmetic and dental procedures are the major offers here and as many of the doctors are trained in the US the quality is pretty good. Cut-rate plastic surgery is also on the go and many Americans consider it a ‘nip and tuck’ Mecca. You can get a thigh lift, tummy tuck, arm lift or implants. The fantastic beach resorts here are a great way to recover privately from plastic surgery, cosmetic dentistry or eye surgery.

  3. Venezuela

    Venezuela is your destination if it’s just buttocks or breasts you are after. Plastic Surgery Centres here specialize in implants and augmentation for the two areas and there are additionals such as tummy tucks, nose jobs, liposuction, face-lifts and so on.

  4. Jamaica

    Check yourself into the Half Moon Club in Montego Bay for an aesthetic surgery vacation. It’s the best of both worlds – there’s the safety of an ASPA registered surgeon and an idyllic resort to recover in after Botox, eyelifts or liposuction.

  5. Dominican Republic

    This is one of the nearest medical tourist destinations to the US mainland. It has become popular with American travelers for plastic surgery, hip-replacement, knee replacement, bariatric surgery and eye surgery with costs up to 75 percent less than on the mainland US.

  6. Colombia

    Body alteration vacations are the thing in Colombia. You can fly to Bogota for liposuction, a nose job and boob job for a fraction of the cost in the USA. Diego Maradona might have started the phenomena of tourists coming here for plastic surgery when he had his stomach stapled in Cartagena.

  7. Panama

    Dental implants, veneers, crowns and general dentistry are popular packages in Panama.

  8. Cuba

    Cuba once aimed its services at well-off patients from Central and South America but now attracts patients from Canada, Germany and Italy. Dental implants, veneers, crowns and general dentistry are popular packages.

  9. Argentina

    Medical services such as plastic surgery rank high here. And once you’ve recovered you can wash it down with choice steak and wine afterwards. If you’re really feeling better go in for a bit of tango to celebrate.

  10. Mexico

    Americans have been going to Mexico for medical care for a long time, particularly those who live near the border. Popular treatments include dentistry and plastic surgery. There have been plenty of claims of shoddy work but also of cheap and excellent care. American doctors are now even setting up offices in Mexico to take advantage of the lower costs. Weight loss surgery is another popular area. Or take in a Temazcal for a bit of general relaxation, a sauna like traditional healing method involving heat. Mexico also has a lot of holistic, yoga, health-oriented spa and mineral hot springs to visit for some relaxation and renewal time.
