We are presently acting for a young women who paid $1,000s for cosmetic breast surgery in a well known Asian holiday destination, only for a terrible outcome.

This idea of "cosmetic surgery-tourism" seems on the increase, which I think is worrying.  My concerns are reinforced given the independent plastic surgeon’s advice we have now received concerning the standard of advice and surgery our client received in this case.

Not that I am an expert, but anyone contemplating this sort of combination of a holiday and cosmetic surgery, should seek a local surgeon’s advice.  Based on this case, it is not a comparison between apples and apples (unless one of them is rotten!) and any potential costs savings need to be carefully considered !
