Since their early days, humans were consciously and unconsciously seeking improvement. This self-improvement shows its face in many aspects, including physical beauty. The goal of cosmetic surgery is to enhance a person’s appearance, self-confidence, and self-esteem.

Nowadays, the profits of plastic surgeries are commonly known. We no longer discuss whether plastic surgery is necessary, but the vital matter is deciding where to undergo our wanted surgery.

But why having plastic surgery in Iran? Here we briefly try to answer this question. We highlight the benefits of pursuing cosmetic treatments in Iran as follows:

Iran boasts expert surgeons, advanced medical technologies, a trusted health system, and it is home to many hospitable people.

Great Affordability

Iran is a pocket-friendly destination. Since the Iranian currency (Rial) is suffering from unprecedented devaluation, medical and cosmetic treatments in Iran are very cheap. In other words, the cost of medical and aesthetical treatments in Iran is approximately a third of similar treatments in countries like the U.S and the U.K.

You might think that cheaper services have lower qualities. Even though it might be true in some cases, it is not accurate in this discussion. As previously mentioned, the lower price of plastic surgeries in Iran is related to the fact that the currency used in this country has a lesser value than developed countries.

A must-see tourist destination

Iran has a history of more than 5000 years, and it is home to some of the oldest places and traditions. Iran has 23 UNESCO world heritage sites and awe-inspiring natural landscapes. Therefore, it should be the next destination on your travel bucket list.

You can visit beautiful cities and tourist attractions while recovering from your surgery. For example, you can visit Shiraz for the sake of tourist attractions like Hafezie (Tomb of Hafez), Sa’adie (Tomb of Sa’adi), Takht-e-Jamshid, Nasir al-Mulk Mosque, to name a few and also make an appointment with a doctor to have surgery. Shiraz is not the only tourist-friendly city; Isfahan, Ahvaz, Rasht, and even Tehran are other cities you might want to visit.

Proficient Surgeons

Surgical facilities available in Iranian hospitals are advanced and highly developed. Iran is known for its innovative hospital equipment and preferred medical engineering. Iran has numerous hospitals with a wide range of high-level medical technologies,

Almost all private hospitals in Iran offer high-tech medicines and various specializations, including specialized clinics, imaging facilities, MRI, 3D ultrasound, etc.

Moreover, Iran has a reputation for credible and skillful doctors and nurses who are strictly trained and should also equip themselves continuously with the most advanced medical knowledge of the day.

The most popular surgeries in Iran are rhinoplasty (nose job), liposuction, tummy tuck. In recent years breast augmentation and buttock implants are getting more attention.

No Waitlist

The popularity of plastic surgeries made lots of medical students choose to be plastic or cosmetic surgeons. The matter of competition aside, the fact that there are many plastic surgeons in Iran helped to reduce the waiting list. In another country, you might have to book your appointment months before, but there is always a good doctor available within days in Iran. Therefore, you can obtain swift access to medical treatments and the services you require.

So even if you cannot take much time far from your country and your boss won’t give you too many days off, you still can have an appointment in your limited time. As you know, the time for recovery after most plastic surgeries is not too much.


Plastic surgery might not have a long history in Iran because it was started almost 40 years ago, but nowadays, Iran is one of the top countries globally with a high rate of plastic surgeries. This popularity helped medical students to decide on the future and become cosmetic surgeons. So many surgeons in the field raised competition, and because of that, they needed to find their patients. Therefore, they tried to become more proficient.

Now in Iran, we have many experienced plastic surgeons. You do not need to be worried about remaining on the waitlist because there are enough excellent doctors out there that you can choose from. You should not be concerned about your time, but you should not worry about the cost. Rial, Iran’s currency, has less value than the currency of developed countries. So, you do not need to spend much money on your surgery, but you might want to spend a part of your saving on souvenirs, museums, food, and so on because Iran has so many tourist attractions you might want to visit. You will enjoy your stay and get that surgery you always wanted at lower prices and higher quality. When you live in Iran, you will be a brand-new person, physically and mentally. While the surgery will have a physical impact, travelling to Iran is quite an experience that will change your worldview forever.
