The cost of plastic surgery in Japan is not only the highest in Asia but also among the highest in the world.
Recent prices noted at Jujin Hospital in Tokyo rival or exceed those charged in Beverly Hills.
While some claim that the quality of plastic surgery is noticeably higher in Japan than in, for instance, South Korea, such sentiment seems to be more historical in basis.
Patients may indeed be more pampered during treatment but their results appear comparable to those obtained by skilled plastic surgeons in other less pricey Asian centers of cosmetic excellence.
