Medical tourism in the Philippines has a long standing tradition, with foreigners coming to the island nation in search of traditional healers and alternative medicine. This form of medical tourism has slowly given way to the modern, more mainstream kind which is effectively helping the national healthcare to grow and improve.
Cosmetic surgery is becoming an increasingly bigger part of the medical tourism market in the Philippines. Besides the Filipinos working abroad, more and more people from other parts of the world like the U.S., Australia, Europe and Asia choose to visit the Philippines for their cosmetic surgical needs.
