Great Risks in Vietnamese Quest to Look Their Best
Posted by Dr. Joshua Fox on June 11, 2012

Today emphasis on personal appearance is greater than ever before, as seen by the increased popularity of plastic surgery. Vietnam has recently adopted this notion, with over 100,000  people seeking facelifts, liposuction, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty and other popular procedures. Many are so anxious to partake in this new trend that they knowingly risk their lives at unlicensed plastic surgery facilities to obtain their desired appearance at a low cost.

In Vietnam, individuals considering plastic surgery go to what is known as a “beauty salon” for a consultation to learn about their procedure of choice. Numerous beauty salons exist across  the country, although only a select few have proper licensing for plastic surgery. What should one do when considering plastic surgery in the United States?
