Multiple procedures: silly or sensible?

Shape and beautyAt Secret Surgery, we are frequently approached by patients wondering if they can save a little time and money by having two procedures at the same time. It’s obvious why this would be desirable; rather than having the worry and stress of coming in for two separate procedures, you can just go to sleep once on the operating table, wake up, and everything’s been done!

So, we can see why you guys and gals might think it’s a good idea. But, well – it’s not. We don’t offer multiple procedures at the same time like this, and I can’t stress enough that the reason why is because we value your safety more than our purses!

Multiple procedures put extra strain on the surgery and the surgeon. Think about this – would you rather have a surgeon working on you for two hours without a break, or four? How long does your concentration usually hold for at work? If it’s four hours, you’re doing better than me! We also don’t want anybody going under anaesthetic for extra time – it’s not safe.

Your body also needs time and energy to heal properly after a surgery, and the more surgeries you have done at the same time, the harder your body will find this to do. And that’s without even thinking about how much extra pain you would have to deal with…

Finally, operating on two areas of the body at once will increase the risk of cross-contamination if there are any issues with bacteria. We don’t want this, and you don’t want this either. So, in short? No, we don’t do multiple surgeries. Yes, you will thank us later!

Money, money, money: how important is the cost of your surgery?

woman-money-cash-coinsOne of the biggest selling points of Secret Surgery is that we offer high quality procedures for a fraction of the price that you would pay for on Harley Street. However, not everyone is sold on the cost of our surgeries – and we still face cynicism from the British media, despite our excellent track record.

So that leads us to the question – how important is money when you’re considering cosmetic surgery? Should you let a cheap cost put you off? Should you let a high price tag twist your arm?

Well, the honest answer is that it all depends. We always stress how important it is to ask your surgeon or consultant about anything and everything that concerns you, and money is definitely included in this!

If the prices you’ve been quoted seem much cheaper than you’ve been told elsewhere, then it’s important to find out why. If the clinic is skimping on quality, experience or safety to save you money, then no – that’s not a good saving! It might end up costing you more in the long run, and, of course, your health is far more valuable than your savings.

However, some overseas surgeries – including ours – can offer cheaper surgeries without compromising on our work. The cost of living in many other parts of Europe is much lower than it is in the UK, which means that the the cost of medical care is somewhat lower, too. This doesn’t mean the medical care isn’t good, though – it’s just economics.

Likewise, this doesn’t mean that the care you get in more expensive clinics is any better. Just as you’ll pay more to rent a flat in London than you would in Wroclaw, you’ll pay more to rent a surgeon, too!
