Plastic surgery in India continues its fast paced growth this year or may become even more productive because of the impact brought today by recession. Unlike healthcare in highly developed countries where plastic surgery cost is up the ceiling, India predicts 2009 as a dynamic year for its medical tourism industry.
According to Dr KM Kapoor, Head, Dep’t of Cosmetic Surgery, Fortis Hospital, Mohali - “Recession and economic slowdown is less likely to hit the Indian cosmetic surgery market as this market is still in very early phase of growth and will take at least a decade to reach the saturation level considering huge Indian population. Unlike markets of developed economies, India will continue to have more cosmetic surgeries and non surgical cosmetic procedures in 2009.”
The boom of plastic surgery in India this year is a likely expectation. Medical tourists will flock Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore where world class surgeons for affordable plastic surgery can be found. With India’s world class medical care professionals, nursing care and cheap plastic surgery cost, the country has increased its medical tourism industry by 30 percent every year. In fact, medical tourism can contribute Rs 5,000-10,000 crore additional revenue for up-market tertiary hospitals by 2012.
Experts say that plastic surgery cost in India is nominal compared to its counterparts in the United States, Canada and Europe. The fact that the country can offer extremely affordable plastic surgery without compromising quality has marked the country as being a holistic medical destination to get an edge over other countries. Plastic surgery in India becomes the ideal destination of patients coming from countries like South-East Asia, Middle East, Africa, Mauritius, Tanzania, Bangladesh and Yemen with 12 per cent patient inflow from developing countries.
India’s great potential in providing high quality, affordable plastic surgery attracted tie-ups with large insurance companies that offers medical care treatments for patients abroad. These companies help medical tourism to gain higher grounds by advocating accreditation of healthcare centers by foreign agencies, marketing and advertising and the promise of giving patients the best medical facilities and treatment packages on the country they choose to go.
