Surgery abroad sounds great: you get to swan off to a sunny, exotic country, pay minimal prices for top quality surgeons, and return to the UK with a brand new body and bags of confidence to go with it. What could be bad about that?
What a lot of people forget is that aftercare is just as important as the treatment itself; if you come home and develop a complication, only to realise that the surgeon who performed your surgery is hundreds of miles away – what are you going to do?
A lot of so-called ‘high-quality’ clinics don’t bother to make sure you’re covered for aftercare, so it’s important to make sure you opt for a surgery that does. While, obviously, the best outcome is one which doesn’t involve any unexpected aftercare – all procedures come with some level of risk, and it’s always important to be covered for every eventuality.
At Secret Surgery, we know how crucial aftercare is; and that’s why our VIP package includes 12 months of comprehensive aftercare treatment in the UK, which covers stitch removal, wound management, scar repair and maintenance. We can also help you to arrange complication insurance with Medical Travel Shield.
“Secret Surgery works with only the best Clinics in the UK to offer a comprehensive aftercare package as well as supplying other additional complementary treatments.” says Angela Chouaib, MD and founder of Secret Surgery Ltd. She also warns of amendments made to the NHS’ regulations: “You need to be aware that there has been a change in the NHS, which means that if you have an elective surgical procedure privately than you must have full aftercare relating to this procedure privately too.”
