Medical Tourism Gone (Horribly) Wrong

It's been a while since we've covered Medical Tourism, but this one's a doozy.

For folks just tuning in, Medical Tourism is (basically) leaving one's home country to obtain care, often surgery or dental work, in another country where costs are lower. Unfortunately, he learned the hard way that "you get what you pay for:"
"Australian man dies days after traveling to Malaysia for cheaper plastic surgery"
Seems that 31 year old Leigh Aiple had traveled to Malaysia for a "tummy tuck, liposuction, an upper eye lift" and other appearance enhancements. What he got, though, was  "gaping holes, there was stitching everywhere."

How's that saying go? Oh, yeah.
