Who Is Traveling to Iran for Medical Care?

Iran, and more specifically Tehran, has now become capital in the field of cosmetic surgeries in the world, especially in nose jobs. In 2017, Iran’s medical tourism sector estimated worth was about 1.7 billion US dollars, which is expected to grow to 4 billion US dollars by 2020.

Iran’s medical tourists are of two types: Some are travelers coming from neighbor countries; namely Turkey, Iraq, Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Oman, and Afghanistan. This group is usually seeking both lifesaving treatments and cosmetic surgeries such as ophthalmology, infertility treatment, open heart surgery, spine surgery, and organ transplant.

Iran also has medical tourists visiting from more developed countries who are mostly looking for cosmetic, life-altering procedures including but not limited to the highly popular rhinoplasty, bariatric surgery, plastic surgery, hair transplantation, breast surgery, and gastric sleeves or bypasses.

A key factor in choosing Iran between these groups is the Iranian surgeons’ high experience and proficiency in the field.
