Medical tourism is never easy, in fact it’s one of the most complicated forms of tourism types in which case the risk factor is extremely high, one of two incidents are enough for the interest to lower dramatically, therefore Dubai and South Africa took all precautions and today, the vast majority of the surgeons you will see in Dubai and South Africa are licensed.
Of course, the first steps of Dubai and South Africa in terms of cosmetic surgery and medical tourism were quite hard. Unlicensed non-doctors were arrested for doing cosmetic surgery in flats and several beauty clinics had untrained staff to perform Botox, which resulted in deformed faces and even death. Dubai and South Africa has once been the playground of international impostors posing as famous plastic surgeons, trying to do plastic surgery on kitchen tables. Luckily, it is all past today as strict international standards and checkups are performed, in order to ensure, that everyone who practices cosmetic surgery in Dubai has the required certifications and experience for doing so.
The board responsible for making sure that every surgeons practicing in Dubai and South Africa are legit is the Dubai Ministry of Health and South African Health Council. Apart from this, everyone who is doing cosmetic surgery must hold a licence of ISAPS (International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery). Every cosmetic surgery must be certified to have the proper place and tools in order to conduct cosmetic surgery the safest way. Medical staff working at any clinic that performs cosmetic surgery in Dubai and South Africa must be also certified and experienced. Today, most Dubai and South African clinics get the best staff from all around the world. Plastic surgeons with name and experience arrive here from Great Britain, United States and from all around the world. The two countries Healthcare Citys are the largest healthcare complexes in the world, housing some of the best medical institutions and schools as well, for those wanting to work in the healthcare industry. The Medical City, the second large healthcare complex is also under construction in Dubai.
