Nose job cost starts from750 Euros meanwhile in Belgium is more than twice more. The price difference is huge, although equally qualified doctors conduct procedures!
Medical tourism is one of the most successfully developing parts of, not only European, but world wide economy. In 2004, medical tourism market was worth 40 billion dollars. According to Brail Research LLC, the value of this market in 2012 will increase to 100 billion dollars! USA citizens travel to South America to get medical or aesthetic treatment, meanwhile citizens from Western European countries travel to Poland, Czech's Republic, Cyprus or Turkey to get procedures done. Why people travel to get medical care? The answer is simple. People are looking for high quality medical treatment for reasonable price, because the costs of medical procedures in their countries have increased lately, a lot. Also, they travel because they are in a rush, and the queue to get the treatment done in their country is just too big.
Medical tourism is getting more and more popular in Poland. The predictions about medical tourism development in Poland are very optimistic.
