Most Britons who travel abroad for cosmetic surgery are satisfied with the results and the experience, a University of Leeds study found. Most respondents were middle-income people who wanted to look "normal," and many used online social media to find a surgeon. Researchers note that 16.5% of respondents experienced complications and 8.7% needed further treatment after returning home. Patients who receive cosmetic procedures abroad have few options for legal recourse.
