With Turkey making a name for itself in plastic surgery, there’s been a rise in plastic surgery tourism. Turkey is now vying to become one of the top five countries in plastic surgery tourism with some 350,000 people visit Turkey annually to be nipped and tucked.
Compared to other countries, plastic surgery in Turkey is on the cheap, for example, Nose remodelling surgery in Europe costs 15,000 euros, while the price drops to 2,500 or 3,000 euros in Turkey.
The United States still has the largest share of the plastic surgery tourism market, taking $5.5 billion a year. It is followed by Europe which takes 3.5 billion euros and then there is Brazil and Turkey.
Foreign patients come from countries such as the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Kuwait, Libya, Egypt, Syria and Turkmenistan, undergo their procedures and recuperations in Turkey and then return to their home countries.
