Tummy tuck abroad

Nov 1st, 2018, 10:40 AM   #1
 
Girls i need help. Has any of you experienced tummy tuck surgery after having babies. I have 3 children and the skin on my tummy is very loose, it is hanging around and i do not feel well about it. I try to hide it under huge tops but i do not want to be like this forever. Did some exercise programs also but not much result. It has been almost two years and i want to look good again so i am thinking of tummy tuck surgery. What would be even better to have it somewhere in EU because wherever i checked it is cheaper than UK. Any recommendation of any good clinics? Thx

I saw something on the news recently about people going abroad for cosmetic surgery as it was cheaper - I'd be very careful and thoroughly research the clinics, because although it's much cheaper you don't get any of the after care that you would if you were in the UK. In addition, there are some places which make people sign contracts agreeing that they are not allowed to share any negative reviews/comments after the surgery, so it might be difficult to get genuine impartial reviews of some clinics.

The RCS has a page with some advice: https://www.rcseng.ac.uk/patient-car...urgery-abroad/

Honestly hun your best off sticking to the UK for it. I've seen so many horror stories of people who have gone abroad for surgery and come back in some awful states. Speak to your gp about it tell them that it's effecting your day to day life ect and they will be able to guide you. My SIL just had her tummy done in a private hospital just on the outskirts of Chester think it was Nuffield health and they did a fab job for her and she had really good aftercare

I'd say with any type of plastic surgery you get what you pay for! Do your research. Lots of places offer payment plans if you can't pay it upfront.

I first thought that it would be UK but i know someone who did travel and was happy with result and also the care. Yes usually the stitches and that post op care would be in UK but i think they are used to it. Anyway i am still deciding between UK and maybe Czechia, because i found some good clinics so will see. I am grateful for any advice

People definitely have success stories abroad. But they're people who do a bucket load of research, ask a million questions when they go for a consult and don't jump into anything. Here in Aus a lot of people go to Thailand for surgery. It can go amazingly or horribly depending on how much research you do. Hopefully you'll find a good clinic x
