Patient experiences and compares UK and Poland


cosmetic surgery wroclaw “The service was good in the UK, but not as good as in Poland, the little things like pain management, anti sickness, aftercare, and attention and care from the surgeon make a huge difference. One little example…. after my last op in the UK, I saw the surgeon very briefly the morning after my op, then it was 2 months before I met with him again. In Poland I seen him daily!”

Last tickets to Secret Surgery’s Christmas Adventure 2013!


71Last year we held a VIP trip to Wroclaw for our very special friends, patients and readers; well, it was so successful that we thought we’d do the same again this year! We promised a lot of you last year that it wouldn’t be the last time we saw you, and we hope you’ll join us for the same fun and frolics again this year.

The trip is open to everyone, whether you’ve been a previous patient or you’d just like to meet us and see what being a part of the Secret Surgery family is all about. It’ll be taking place from Friday 6th December to Monday 10th, and regional flights are available from Liverpool, the East Midlands, Bristol and Stansted  – so there’s no excuse not to come!

There’ll be a meal out every evening of the trip, and we’ve organised a guided tour around the city on Saturday. On Sunday, you’ll get a tour of the hospital, a presentation, and… our favourite bit… a goody bag! So you’ll have something to remember your trip with.

If you’re still not convinced, just take a look at this video of last year’s trip… and tell us is doesn’t look amazing!

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!

Patient Testimonial: Reconstructive surgery after massive weightloss


happy man cosmetic surgeryI’ve just arrived back in the Apartment and the surgeon was so right….I needed a few extra days in hospital to be cared for properly… I have felt rather weak but then I expected that… I need to build myself up again by eating plenty of Protein… Can I just say how completely overwhelmed Iv been by your interest shown regarding my progress…..

The medical and nursing care have been absolutely second tonone and Aga has been the utmost professional throughout my time here, whenever Ive turned around shes been there for me…..And of course Jack….. He’s always been here wherever I’ve needed to go and at whatever time..day or night…..

It would be wrong not to mention my Surgeon Dr W, who without doubt has performed miracles on me in such a short time….. He and I were sitting having a cuppa outside the hospital at 7am this morning!!!!! A new friend for life!!!

Who could I possibly have forgotten???? of course, my dear friend Angela who has believed in me from day one and supported and encouraged me every step of the way… Its not easy electing to have major surgery X2 but without you…it would not have been possible

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.

Breast reductions can be the best reductions…


yummy mummy makeoverA cheesy title! Forgive me. Breast reductions can be the best reductions, though – particularly if they go as smoothly as they can. Your best chances of having an easy surgery and a quick recovery come from knowing how to take care of yourself once you’ve had the procedure.  Follow our easy tips and you’ll be just fine:

  • Take painkillers after the op – but don’t take aspirin, ever, after undergoing a breast reduction.
  • Be prepared to have swollen breasts for weeks following the surgery.
  • Rest as much as possible, and limit your arm movements as much as you can.
  • Get yourself a sports bra, and wear it day and night for at least two weeks following your surgery.
  • Don’t exercise, but do try and move around as much as possible. Avoid lying still for long periods other than for sleep.
  • Start arm movements and exercises around a week after your surgery
  • Refrain from driving for at least two weeks – more, if you feel it’s necessary
  • Don’t smoke for at least two weeks after your op

Of course, the biggest rule – the key one to remember – is to ALWAYS follow your doctor’s orders. It’s not just something your parents say, it’s really important! If you’re worried about taking care of yourself post-op, please don’t hesitate to sign up to our VIP aftercare package – there’ll be someone in the UK for you to rely on at all points following your surgery.
