Earlier the name of this country, for the majority of people, was associated with the myths, the cocaine barons, the action movies, and the mystical Eldorado. But now many people, at the sound of word "Columbia," think about liposuction, silicone breasts, and tightening of the face.
Plastic surgery clinics are scattered around the country and are frequented by thousands of foreign citizens who arrive especially to improve their appearance during vacation. People are attracted by the low prices, good service, and high level of professionalism by the physicians.
The well-developed network of medical establishments is considered to be the prerequisite for such an influx of foreign patients. And they, in turn, arose because Columbians themselves in recent years have been paying much more attention to their appearance, and thus the demand for plastic surgery rapidly rose.
