There’s never a dull moment when it comes to Darcey Silva and her twin sister, Stacey Silva. In the second season of their 90 Day Fiancé spin-off, Darcey & Stacey, turn up the heat with their trip to Turkey for a total transformation. Or, excuse us, “twinsformation,” as they call it on the show.
But why did Darcey Silva and Stacey Silva go to Turkey for their cosmetic surgeries instead of having them at home in the States? It’s no secret that both women underwent work before appearing on 90 Day Fiancé.
Darcey & Stacey: Why Did Darcey And Stacey Silva Go To Turkey?
Although Darcey and Stacey don’t explain the trip to Turkey on their show, they told Entertainment Weekly that they saw the work of a Turkey-based doctor online, and they both agreed it was the one. “We were researching places, and for some reason, I felt Turkey and she felt Turkey, so we figured out we’d pick the best doctor for us, and we had consultations,” Darcey said. “We wanted to go on this inward-outward journey together, just us. Obviously, we took our precautions.”
It may also have had to do with cost. They said they wanted big transformations. When comparing the cost of some of Darcey and Stacey Silva’s procedures in Turkey to the cost in the U.S., it seems that the former is the cheaper option.
In fact, there is a phenomenon called medical tourism – when someone travels outside of their country for affordable medical procedures. When you look at the surgeries Darcey and Stacey had in Turkey, there is a legitimate cost difference. One of the procedures the sisters had was a breast reduction. In the United States, the national average cost is $5,680. In Turkey, however, they may have paid closer to $2,160.
Darcey and Stacey Silva also had liposuction during their trip to Turkey. In the United States, the average cost is $3,518. However, in Turkey, you could get the same procedure for about $2,160, the same price as a breast reduction.
Darcey and Stacey both make money from being on TV and from their clothing line, but if their reason for going to Turkey for their surgeries was the cost difference, can you really blame them?
