Whilst cost can be an influential factor in choosing a surgeon and a clinic (as well as the appeal of recovering in sunnier climes) patients must bear in mind that the cost of corrective surgery and the health implications of procedures if not carried out correctly, can far out way the savings made with cheaper alternatives.
It’s important that all prospective patients who are considering cosmetic surgery abroad thoroughly research their operation, surgeon and hospital before making the decision. Mr Bryan Mayou, Founder of the Cadogan Clinic, shares his advice for those considering travelling overseas for surgery:
The same rules apply abroad as they do in the UK when selecting a cosmetic surgeon and procedure. To ensure safety, patients should do extensive homework before making the commitment. It is imperative that patients visit the clinic and have a consultation with the surgeon before committing to the procedure, so you can get peace of mind that this is the right surgeon and procedure for you. Having a consultation over Skype is not the same as visiting the clinic and having a face-to-face consultation.
Below is a checklist of questions that any patient should ask their surgeon, whether having a procedure abroad, or in the UK, to maximise patient safety and give results that meet expectations.
