Cosmetic Harmony, a medical tourism company specializing in cosmetic surgery, has seen a dramatic increase in its American clientele, despite a marked drop in procedures performed in the United States. Headquartered in Colombia, Cosmetic Harmony offers procedures at a fraction of the cost patients would pay elsewhere.
"Many Americans now travel abroad for high quality, safe and affordable procedures. Apparently, Colombia is quickly climbing up the charts and has become the ultimate Medical Tourism destination for Cosmetic Surgery Procedures. But affordability is just one reason. The country is also home to some of the world's most talented plastic surgeons. The expertise and professionalism of Colombian doctors and specialists is recognized across the world," says Anthony Giudice, Cosmetic Harmony Sales Supervisor.
Colombia has carved a niche for medical tourism as Cosmetic surgery procedures in Colombia are on a par with top Western practices and have been attracting lots of medical travelers from USA and Europe. Colombian doctors and nurses are highly trained to ensure that their medical skills and knowledge meet the international standards.
A substantial increase in inflow of medical travelers to Colombia has led the Colombian government to invest significant resources in promoting a safe and tourist friendly environment. Lonely Planet, a well known international travel guide, picked Colombia as one of their top ten world travel destinations for 2006.
