Cosmetic Medical tourism in New Zealand
Whilst many Asian clinics advertise in New Zealand, what many New Zealanders do not realise is that New Zealand is often a destination for cosmetic medical tourists. At Palm Clinic we have many clients who seek treatment for liposuction, varicose vein treatments, Botox, dermal fillers and laser treatments. Such clients have come from Asia, Australia, Tahiti, UK and USA because New Zealand practitioners are acknowledged as being well trained and often at the forefront of cosmetic medical treatments. Also our treatments compare favourably on a cost basis with other countries and can represent particularly good value for those from Australia, UK and USA.
