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.

The A to Z of Aftercare

detail_lidstraffungWhen you’re researching surgery abroad, it’s important to remember that the surgery itself is not the end of it. It’s important to ensure that you have aftercare in place for when your surgery is over – just in case.

What is aftercare, and why is it so crucial? If anything goes wrong in your surgery – or even if you’re just concerned that you might want a follow-up check to make sure everything is healing properly – aftercare is what’s going to give you the peace of mind you need.

Our VIP aftercare package means that even when you’ve returned to the UK, if you need further care following your surgery, it’s always available to you. Even if you never need to use it, aftercare is a massive boost to your confidence and can make all the difference when it comes to enjoying your trip.

Of course, it’s not just about peace of mind. Aftercare can be crucial in cases where complications do occur – and they do, however infrequently. Making sure that you choose a surgery provider who have contacts back here in the UK will mean that there’s always someone on the end of the phone if you find you’re not recovering properly.

At Secret Surgery, we really can’t stress the importance of aftercare enough. It’s like your mum always said… it’s better to be safe than sorry!
