Brazil Health Tourism
Due to its location, Brazil is frequently preferred by people in the Americas for health tourism. The most preferred treatments by health tourists are aesthetic, plastic surgery, and dental treatments. In 2018, a total of more than 1.4 million aesthetic and plastic surgery procedures were performed in Brazil. For this reason, Brazil is known as the plastic and aesthetic surgery capital of the world.
The most important breakthrough that Brazil has made in the health tourism sector is the health zone it has established in the state of Pernambuco. Despite the investments made in the region, the capital city of Sao Paulo is the center of the Brazilian health tourism industry with more than 100 hospitals, laboratories, and spa centers in the region.
