Surgeons from around the globe recently convened for the first Asian Breast Aesthetic Symposium in Kuala Lumpur. The three-day event focused on the latest advances in breast augmentation and the growing trend of plastic surgery in Asia.
Among the topics discussed at the meeting was the controversial subject of medical tourism. Sources say the medical tourism industry in Asia may be worth billions of dollars by the year 2012, due to the reasonable cost.
At the same time, the number of botched surgeries is also rising, since many beauty salons and private clinics offer cosmetic procedures through people not qualified to perform it.
Surgeons at the symposium discussed the urgent need for all potential patients to seek out qualified specialists. Of course, this is a smart move for educated patients seeking plastic surgery anywhere in the world! Video plays below.
