Medical Tourism Becomes More Popular in New Zealand

Not a traditional tourist attraction, but more and more Brits are heading over to New Zealand to take advantage of their medical facilities. The country has been developing sophisticated cosmetic surgery clinics and offers their services at much cheaper prices than the average European country.

Plus, while recovering from an operation, you can take full advantage of the many other attractions which make New Zealand a great place to visit.

There are various benefits to flying over to New Zealand for cosmetic surgery. First of all, New Zealanders obviously speak English. This is certainly an advantage when communicating with the surgeon, which you won't find in some eastern European countries. In addition, many of the plastic surgeons found in New Zealand are amongst the best in the world. Usually having trained in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada.

You can also expect to be pampered during your stay. Surgeries will often take charge of all your travel arrangements allowing you to relax and not worry about planning your trip. The surgery will book your flight, organise any airport connections you might need, plan medical appointments and offer post-surgery care.

There are other procedures available too, including Orthopaedic, Dentistry, Fertility Treatment, Dermatology and Ophthalmology.

The price will vary from clinic to clinic. However, brest augmentation may cost around $12,000, up to 50% cheaper than private UK prices. You make back the cost of your flight just by having one procedure. Whilst recovering from the operation you can visit some of New Zealand's traditional tourist attractions. These include skiing, horse riding, sailing or hiking. As the country is relatively uncrowded with a population of just 4 million, you can recover in peace and tranquillity. There are snow topped mountain views, sandy beaches, lush rainforests, glaciers and even active volcanoes. Furthermore, the locals are extremely friendly towards tourists and will make you feel very welcome.

If you're thinking of moving to New Zealand more permanently, give 1st Move International a call. They will take care of the removal of your belongings, and ship to New Zealand in around 32 days.
