Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 14, 2009 -- In today's information age, savvy consumers have at their disposable a variety of tools to research and compare healthcare options. Skill and safety are among the top criteria cited by many cosmetic surgery seekers, followed closely by cost. The surprising result? Many Americans now travel abroad for high quality, safe and affordable procedures. In 2008 more cosumers traveled to Colombia for cosmetic procedures than ever before. In fact the year over year percentage growth was a 31% increase from 2007. With over 45,000 people visting Colombia for surgery in 2008. This was in part due to a slowing economy in the United States and Europe as well as a growing reputation for Colombian surgeons. Medical Tourism as an industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world today.

Cosmetic Harmony, a medical tourism company specializing in cosmetic surgery, has seen an increase in its American clientele. Headquartered in Colombia, Cosmetic Harmony offers procedures at a fraction of the cost patients would pay elsewhere, coupled with a degree of personal attention almost unheard of in the United States.

With rising costs in the United States and Europe more and more clinics and surgeons are seeking ways to cut costs. "In the United States, a patient may see several different doctors leading up to his or her procedure. It's an assembly line mentality," says Anthony Guidice, Cosmetic Harmony Vice President of Sales. "There's little to no continuity when multiple physicians are involved at different stages in the process. Cosmetic Harmony prides itself of continuity of care and a personalized experience. The physician you see for the consultation will be the same physician who performs the surgery and the same physician you see once the surgery is complete."

In addition to the personal attention of a dedicated physician, Cosmetic Harmony clients also benefit from the company's use of anesthesiologists, as opposed to nurse anesthetists. Nurse anesthetists are commonly used to administer anesthesia in many surgery centers, due to the comparably high cost of their physician counterparts.

"While nurse anesthetists are certainly qualified to administer anesthesia, we feel that a medical doctor is better suited," says Guidice. "Our anesthesiologists administer the anesthesia and oversee the procedure, beginning to end, to ensure safety."
