Real People: The Risks Explained!

the risks explained real people magazineThere have been rumours about the risks and dangers of surgery abroad for a long time, and the recent surgery abroad feature in Real People magazine has done its best to put some of these rumours to rest. Want to know the difference between FACT and FICTION? Read on below to find out what our favourite untrue surgery abroad rumours are:

  • Patients are rich jet-setters. FALSE. Most of our patients are normal working people on normal working wages.
  • Surgery abroad often goes wrong. FALSE. In a Leeds University study, only two participants weren’t happy with the results.
  • Patients choose clinics based in countries where they can speak the language. FALSE. Actually, most patients aren’t that well-travelled and usually speak only English.

If you want to know more about not just Secret Surgery, but surgery abroad in general, then be sure to pick up the latest copy of Real People magazine, which should be in your local shops! We’ve spilled all the gossip on what overseas surgery is REALLY like!

Real People: Savings on surgery abroad

savings on surgery abroad real people magazineOne of the sections in our latest feature in Real People magazine detailed the savings that you can make by opting to have surgery abroad rather than in the UK. The feature gave some fantastic examples of surgery costs in the UK and elsewhere, and shows just how much you can save if you put your mind to it – and just how much UK surgeons really milk you for all you’ve got!

Some of the best examples from the article are:

  • Liposuction in the Czech Republic costs, on average, £1,800 compared to £3,540 in the UK.
  • A tummy tuck in Poland would cost £2,096 compared to £5,660 in the UK.
  • A facelift in Poland would cost £2,220 compared to £6,950 in the UK.

These examples are all from Europe, but the article also details the costs if you want to fly out to Thailand or Malaysia. Of course, it’s cheaper to travel to Europe than Asia, but if you’re desperate for an Eastern holiday then why not combine the two?

Hopefully this feature will go some way to convincing the general public that surgery abroad isn’t something to be avoided – and it shows that it’s not just countries like Poland which have cheaper prices than the UK – just about everywhere does!

Secret Surgery featured in the Guardian and on the BBC!

The-Guardian-LogoSome of you have likely already noticed Secret Surgery crop up around the British media this week – last Friday we got national coverage in both the Guardian and on BBC Breakfast. You can find the Guardian article here, which features a chat with Guardian-article-budget-flights-cheaper-operations1Angela Chouaib, Secret Surgery’s founder and managing director.

Angela had a chat with the Guardian and told them how it really works when you go for surgery abroad, including the fact that with Secret Surgery, the surgeons and hospitals that you get for your money are just as good – if not better – as the ones you’ll get in the UK.

We’re also pleased to see that the reporters at the paper found from surgery patients themselves that the majority of surgery abroad experiences are positive ones. They do, of course, point out that some patients experience complications, but any surgeon who doesn’t warn you of the risk of complications isn’t doing his job. All surgeries come with risks, whether you undergo them in Poland or London.

It’s good to see the British media taking a balanced and fair view of the overseas cosmetic surgery industry – we hope to see more of this in the future!
