Despite U.S. economy, more Americans seeking cosmetic surgery overseas
Date:11/8/2008

Economic downturn and possible recession, the focal point of the presidential campaign, has caused many anxious Americans to put major purchases on hold. Purchases of luxury items - a new car, the family vacation and even some elective procedures, like cosmetic surgery - have all but been eliminated amidst the financial crisis. But savvy consumers aren't waiting for an economic upturn; with a favorable exchange rate in Colombia, they're seeking alternatives overseas.

Miami, FL (PRWEB) November 8, 2008 - Economic downturn and possible recession, the focal point of the presidential campaign, has caused many anxious Americans to put major purchases on hold. Purchases of luxury items - a new car, the family vacation and even some elective procedures, like cosmetic surgeryhave all but been eliminated amidst the financial crisis. But savvy consumers aren't waiting for an economic upturn; with a favorable exchange rate in Colombia, they're seeking alternatives overseas.

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, with offices in Miami, Florida and Panama City, Pamana, Cosmetic Harmony offers procedures at a fraction of the cost patients would pay elsewhere.

"People who are putting financial decisions on hold until the economy recovers could be waiting a very long time," says Anthony Guidice, Cosmetic Harmony Vice President of Sales. "What we offer, however, are cosmetic procedures that won't threaten someone's financial stability."

Favorable exchange rates coupled with already affordable prices, put cosmetic procedures back in reach for the cash-strapped consumer. In the month of October alone the dollar rose almost 30% against the Colombian Peso. But affordability is just one reason Colombia has become a travel destination for people seeking cosmetic surgery. The country is also home to some of the world's most talented plastic surgeons. Giudice also notes that Cosmetic Harmony uses only FDA-approved materials and all equipment not only meets but exceeds international standards.
