Plastic surgery abroad: the risks
A major problem with getting plastic surgery abroad is that you might not be able to check the qualifications of the medical staff performing the procedure. Even when you’re able to find out this information, it can be difficult to determine whether the surgeon’s education is equivalent to what is required in Canada.

Additionally, there’s no guarantee that the health and safety standards and regulations will be the same as the ones in effect in Canada. And if complications from the procedure should arise after you’ve left the country, you might find yourself with limited options and be forced to pay for a second trip, not to mention a second surgery.

And, lastly, when you get plastic surgery in another country, you have little time to discuss the operation and the risks its involves with the surgeon, since you often meet them only the day before the surgery, if not the very same day.
