Why you should opt for your cosmetic surgery in the UK

In the UK, cosmetic surgery is heavily regulated by the Healthcare Commission and the General Medical Council meaning that there’s a higher regulation standard that needs to be met here, compared to other counties where you may find cosmetic surgery procedures cheaper. 

There are many benefits to having cosmetic surgery in the UK including: 

1. Any aftercare is easily accessible 

There can always risks and complications involved with cosmetic surgery procedures both in the UK and aboard. 

However, if you have any complications after your procedure or need any aftercare you can be rest assured that you can get the care and advice you need if you visit a surgeon in the country that you live in with a convenient visit to the clinic. 

2. You reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis or a pulmonary embolism

Flying after surgery can have many complications including deep vein thrombosis or a pulmonary embolism.Flying soon before or after an operation abroad combines these risks, especially if it is a long-haul flight.  

Deep vein thrombosis occurs when a blood clot forms in a vein, partially or completely blocking blood flow. It usually occurs in a deep leg vein and can cause immobility and long-term problems with circulation. The symptoms usually include swelling, pain, warm skin, tenderness and redness. 

A pulmonary embolism occurs when a blood vessel supplying the lung becomes blocked by a clot. This may travel in the bloodstream from a vein in the pelvis, abdomen or leg. Symptoms of a pulmonary embolism include breathlessness, chest pain and potentially fatal collapse. 

3. You don’t have to pay for flight, plus any extra tests due to Covid-19 

In the current climate it’s not as easy to just jump on a flight and travel to another destination – and there’s potentially additional costs associated which may not make cosmetic surgery abroad as cheap as it first seems.
