In a suburb in northern Johannesburg South Africa,
Lorraine Melvill is running around trying to organize hospital visits for her clients staying in her guest house.
She started her business, "Surgeon and Safari,"
自从在2000年开设了这家名为"Surgeon and Safari"的公司之后，
back in 2000 and since then she has had people from all over the world come to her to facilitate their cosmetic procedures, and perhaps go on safari too.
"For most people in the first-world economies like the UK, and especially in America,
their biggest desire is to go on African safari," she explains,
"and yet their greatest want in their life was to have plastic surgery, so why not put the two together?"
Like most companies, however, Surgeon and Safari was hit by the global financial crisis,
然而，和其他公司一样Surgeon and Safari受到全球金融危机的冲击，
particularly as a number of Melvill's clients were borrowing money to afford their procedures.
However, whilst the United States and eurozone economies may have languished,
Melvill says that she has benefited from the growth of some African countries' economies.
"There is a huge emergence of local Africans that chose to come to South Africa for elective surgery,
whether it be breast reduction, tummy tucks," she says.
