Also some facilities may be privately owned, making verification of medical credentials difficult or impossible.

Cosmetic surgery procedures, devices and products used abroad, including implants and fillers, may not have been tested or proven safe and effective, or the standards in that particular country may not be as high as in the standards in the United States.
