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!

Let’s talk about: money and surgery

woman-money-fanWhen you’re organising cosmetic surgery, one of things you’re likely to be worrying about a lot is money. Surgery can be expensive, and balancing your need for high-quality, low-risk surgery with your purse’s need for something affordable can be difficult. It’s important to ask yourself – and your consultant – the right questions to ensure that you really are getting the best deal you can from your clinic.

What’s my budget? Make sure you know this from the very beginning. It’ll stop you from overspending, and some surgeons might try to sell you extra treatments or procedures that you don’t need – keeping a fixed budget in mind won’t let you go overboard.

How much do I need to pay upfront? Make sure you get this information from your surgery, so you know just how much you need to save in advance. Some clinics well request large upfront deposits, while others will let you pay most of your treatment off at a later date.

Are there any hidden costs? Find out exactly how much your treatment costs from your consultant. This includes any overnight care that you might need, recovery items you might need to buy, and more. Remember that the cost of your surgery includes everything you have to spend to have the surgery – including travel and accommodation.

Which payment methods does your surgery accept? This is worth considering, particularly if you’ll need to pay in a less common method than, say, with a Visa card. Make sure you find this out before it’s too late.

If you know the answers to all of these questions, you’re definitely on the right track to finding the right, cost-appropriate surgery for you. To take the next step and receive a FREE personalised info pack and quote please visit or call 0843 289 4 982 or email
