In Colombia the quality and level of private medical services is very high, that is why today is one of the most important fields of the economy, over the past 10 years, the flow of foreign patients coming into the country because of the scientific quality of surgeons and the innovation that has occurred in surgical and anesthetic techniques has increased more than 200%.

This has led our country to the improvement of surgical anesthetic for faster recoveries and risk minimization protocols. Thus, surgeons today seek less visible or hidden scars, more natural results and improve the appearance of patients but always based on realistic expectations.

2What are the elements to consider when I’m going to have a plastic surgery in Colombia?
Remember that every plastic surgeon should be licensed physician and subsequently advancing the specialty of plastic surgery, offered by a university officially approved program.

The plastic surgeon should indicate whether the procedure to be performed is simple or complex, more or less, since this depends requiring outpatient care (outpatient) or have to stay hospitalized for one or several days. Usually all the cases are outpatient.

You must ensure that the IPS (health company) count on emergency care, hospitalization or intensive care by themselves or through a contract or agreement with another entity for the case where any complications during medical intervention occurs.

It is necessary to ensure that the institution is authorized to perform the type of procedure being required.

Do not forget that the number of procedures to be performed in a single intervention makes it more risky.

Beware of rates or excessively economic plans. A plastic surgery is not something to try to get the best price but the best professional, even that in Colombia the prices are lower compared to other countries, you still need yo be careful and not have your surgery with extremely cheap entities.

Note that the injection of substances are not allowed in Colombia as a cosmetic procedure so if someone is offering this kind of services, be careful.

Don't trust in people offering miracles, the expectations of the patients must be realistic and the plastic surgery helps but don´t bring miracles. If your expectations are not realistic you won´t have the results you want. Talk about this with the doctor because its a crucial issue in plastic surgeries.

The surgery should be done when you really have the time of recovery, never in a rush, it is true that the protocols reduces the recovery time, but you still need time to get better, also remember that it is better too much than too little time on this kind of cases.

All surgeries require different times recovery and these range between 8 days and 21 days. When it is a foreign patient, it is preferable that has a little more time so the normal the average stay is 15 days after the surgery.

In addition to how long will you stay, you should choose a time when you have the mental and spiritual tranquility and availability for recovery. Always take the time to plan it, do not do it in a rush, this experience is much better in a good holiday trip.
