One of the reasons we emphasize doing your homework before choosing a plastic surgeon is because safety is so important, not only with surgical procedures, but also non-invasive procedures such as Botox & fillers. Traveling oversees or seeing non-board certified doctors for Botox can be very risky; especially if the injection is not actually what you think it is. Recently, a woman in Miami-Dade County, Florida was arrested on charges of practicing without a medical license when she administered illegal Botox, which caused serious health problems to the patient. The price might have been very attractive, but the health risks were not worth it. No matter what plastic surgeon you choose, doing your homework and making sure he/she is board certified (and specifically what they are board certified in) is very important and will give you peace of mind and ensure that your experience is safe.
