Breast augmentation abroad?
« on: June 11, 2012, 01:05:35 PM »
Hi,

was wondering if any of you have good experience with breast augmentation outside the UK? I was thinking of killing two birds with one stone and visit Prague and I´ve heard about this clinic over there - Linkspam removed, the prices seem to me ok too, does anoyne know it?

Many thanks!
Martha

This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a retired Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

We work hard at not permitting suspicious posters. The link was removed as well as the account banned, but the question was valid.

Traveling for surgery is an option that can expand the number of specialists skilled in certain operations. I saw patients from around the world who preferred my techniques. But price should not be the major concern, especially when the place has little to nothing to validate just what skills the doctors have. Each surgeon has his own skills. Most surgery is not a group effort, but individual sculpture. When traveling to a clinic that does not specify just who will performing the operation, the quality is only as good as the weakest link. In the site reviewed, that was someone sorely lacking the extended qualifications, training, society memberships discussed in our resources in How To Pick A Plastic Surgeon.

Beyond those general issues, each region of the body and type surgery has its own mastery. Being good in one type of surgery does not always translate to another operation. Although we have resources I have added on How to Pick a Gynecomastia Surgeon, in the case of female breast critical analysis should include something like our Standard Breast Lift Pictures or even more critically Standard Breast Lift Videos.

I discuss issues about documentation of the female breast on this post Breast Lift Forum - Breast Lift Without Implants. I have discussed evolving the standard views and videos for breast implants here: Breast Implant Forum - How Do You Know When an Augmentation Price is Too Low? which also is on costs that seem too good to be true.

Breast implants themselves are a factor as discussed in this post: Breast Implant Forum - Panic From France Call for Removal Thousands PIP Implants.

Revision surgery tends to be much more expensive. I saw many patients unhappy after surgery done elsewhere now faced with additional costs of trying to restore the disastrous results done by another doctor.

So traveling out of the United Kingdom may be a viable idea, but such travel should be based on careful investigation of the surgeon's skills and qualifications, not on Tourism hype of how pretty the rooms are.

It would be nice to see some help here in building specific resources such as critical standard pictures for breast augmentation, videos to show how breast implants move when properly done, and how to pick your breast implant surgeon. If not, I hope eventually to get to this fascinating topic.

Hope this helps,
