surgery in our clinic
i need to buy a special bra before i come there?
Frequently Asked Questions
No, you do not have to buy any bra before the surgery, you will get a bra in the clinic (it is included in the price of the surgery).
What scarring do you have?
In case of breast lift in most cases our surgeons use so called LeJour method which helps to avoid so called cut "up side down T". The method consist of two cuts: round aeorolas nipple and vertical cut to the breast's furrow (where the breast skin's meets the chest's skin).
What type of anaestetic is used during surgery?
We use general anaestetic.
What type of antibiotics are administered after surgery?
Usually the patients get Keflex and Clexane after the surgery.
Do patients leave the facility with a supply of antibiotics to prevent further infection?
Yes the patients get medicaments in the day of the departure (e.g. Keflex)
If the operation goes wrong, does the clinic take responsibility for
organizing any corrective surgery required?
Please remember that before (during the consultation) and after the surgery (at the day of your departure) our doctors will provide you with all information needed and will tell you all about behavior after the surgery. You will get an "instruction" how to behave. So, you will know what ailments are temporary and normal and what ailments should be disturbing. If you have any serious discomfort after the surgery and you feel a need of coming back to our clinic, then you have the right to an after-check-up visit in our clinic - the visit is free of charge. Furthermore the clinic refunds all costs connected with travel, accommodation and medical treatment needed, providing that the problems were caused by the clinic To explain it better I will give an example: Before you leave the clinic you are provided with detailed description of the treatment as well as with the post-operation instructions. If you stick to those instructions and problems occur then the clinic refunds the costs. In other cases (e.g you came to the disco short time after the surgery) the costs have to be covered by you. It is very important to follow the post-operation instructions in 100%! Moreover, our staff will stay in touch with you (as you wish: e-mail or phone) for a few weeks after the surgery.
So, we do not leave our patients that have came home alone. We are in contact with them.
What are the recommendations after the breast enlargement surgery?
- During the first three weeks after the operation you cannot do any heavy works, even vacuuming (!)
- During the first 6 weeks you cannot do any exercises, e.g.: aerobic, fitness, swimming, etc.
- During the first 6 weeks you have to wear the bra day and night.
- Every second day change the dressing and clean the wound with salicylic spirit (alcohol).
- After 12 days you should take off the sutures.
- During the first two weeks you should take vitamin C.
- 6 months sauna, solarium, sunbathing - forbidden.
- After 7 days from the operation, during the next 5 weeks, massage your breast 3 times per day for 1 minute.
- 5 days after the sutures has been take off you have to rub in the scars with Contractubex gel.
We can do breast enlargement by three methods: breast enlargement with implants, breast lift, breast lift with implants. All three methods require stay in the clinic for 2-3 days (exception are anatomical implants which required 3-4 days of stay).
What insurance do they give if the surgery is not a success?
Of course the clinic and the doctors have very wide and expansive insurance, but I think you are asking about guarantee rather than insurance. If surgery fails, which is very unlikely, the clinic covers all costs connected with returning to the clinic and correcting surgery - all this providing that the problem was caused by the clinic (for example if you do not follow post-op instruction then of course clinic do not take the responsibility for it).
How are you expected to be paid? If possible I do not want to take cash with me. Would prefer a transfer from bank account or other method of payment.
First, to do a preliminary surgery booking you have to pay 250 euro deposit in advance to clinic bank account (wire transfer). Then there are two options:
a) a few days before your arrival to the clinic you do another wire transfer to the clinic account and pay the rest (surgery price, blood count and accommodation minus 250 euro payed in advance). The transfer must be made early enough to come to the clinic account before the surgery!
b) second option is to pay with a credit card in the clinic (for example
We offer a free consultation by our plastic surgeon and we value your privacy.How can I pay in the clinic?
There are three options: cash, plastic card/credit card or partly in cash and partly by plastic/credit card.
What is the 250 euro deposit?
After you contact MediConsult you have the right to do preliminary booking for your surgery. If you are sure about the surgery you have to do final booking by paying 250 euro in advance to the clinic bank account or via Western Union.
Would you advice me to take travel insurance?
Yes, we always recommend taking travel insurance. But remember that a usual travel insurance will help you if you for example break the leg on the airport but probably do not cover problems after the surgery taken abroad - you have to consult it with your insurance broker.
Can I bring someone with me?
Yes, If we have free places in the clinic the person may stay with you in the clinic (the payment is 70 euro per day for full board and accommodation). In case of no vacancies we recommend stay in hotel.
How much time will I need to take off work?
If you are office worker we recommend taking a rest for about a week after the surgery, in case of laborer for 2 weeks. Please note that recovery, ailments and mood after the surgery are different for each patient. It all depends on individual predispositions of a patient.
What about smoking - I am a smoker?
Smoking is not a contraindication to take the surgery. As for the smoking, naturally like all doctors our surgeons also do not support smoking. But from our experience we know that it is very hard for patients to quit the addiction just before the surgery. Therefore we recommend limitation of smoking two weeks before the surgery at least. You should limit smoking as much as it is possible for you.
