Cosmetic Surgery Abroad:  An Extensive Guide for Making the Right Decision

 

Amidst the rising climate of apprehension and misgivings about travelling abroad for medical treatments, NHS warnings have set the tone for making a scrutinized research and undergoing a thorough decision-making process before embarking on a medical trip. Having firmly attached to the regulatory codes of conduct fleshed out by international and local administrative bodies, as RevitalizeinTurkey, we have committed to guide the prospective patients to make the right decision by not solely basing his/her choice of company or surgeon on price, but at the same time on some other significant asssesment elements. Patients increased awareness and  the pursuit to be selective in choosing the right doctor and the company would play a key role to eliminate the undesired consequences that outweigh the incentive "cheap" price deals.

 

What is an "Informed Consent"?

 

Informed consent is the process by which fully informed patients can participate in choices about their healthcare. It originates from the legal and ethical right the patient has to direct what happens to her body and from the ethical duty of the physician to involve the patient in her health care

 

What are the elements of full informed consent?

 

The most important goal of informed consent is that patients have an opportunity to be an informed participant in his health care decisions. It is generally accepted that complete informed consent includes a discussion of the following elements:

 

  • the nature of the decision/procedure
  • reasonable alternatives to the proposed intervention
  • the relevant risks, benefits, and uncertainties related to each alternative
  • assessment of patient understanding
  • the acceptance of the intervention by the patient

 

You are planning to go abroad for surgery; Are you a good candidate to have the surgery ?

 

A lot of TV programmes intoxicate the viewers with misinformation for commercial brainwash. Cosmetic surgery is, thus;  commonly represented as a magical tool that is closely associated with a magical transformation. The chances that the result of the operation is very positive when right candidates are involved; however, the result could equally be unsatisfactory if wrong candidates are involved. Hence, any person whose expectations are not realistic and whose physical properties and pschological motives are not justifiable to have the cosmetic surgery should not seek to have plastic surgery until they get their expecations ripe and their physical properties suitable for it.

 

What is the policy of RevitalizeinTurkey ?

The high ethical standards and evaluation benchmarks that we embrace have consolidated our philosophy in proper guidance and counselling. We approach each of our patients with due understanding to their motives in seeking to have cosmetic surgery in the light of the clinic and medical data that we collect from the patient. With the conclusion that the patient fails to qualify for the selected surgery, we kindly decline to carry out the operation for the objective reasons.

 

Choosing the right company? Are you checking the "word of mouth reference" of the company?

 

To make the right choice necessitates a groundwork that involves checking the credentials of the surgeon, the level of the aftercare, the facilities of the private hospital and the follow-up checks. Have your checklist fully completed by addressing the questions below;

  1. Is the  surgeon accredited by the local regulatory body or the association of the country. What is the local regulatory body? Is this local body equivalent of BAPRAS? 
  2. What are the credentials and academic bacground of the surgeon? Check if the surgeon has any publications that are published in any international medical journal.
  3. Ask for patient testimonials and the contact details of previous patients to get the first hand feeeback from them.
  4. Check the facilities of the private hospital where the operation will be performed. Make sure that the operation takes place at the hospital but not at the clinic. Also, ask if the hospital is a fully accredited private hospital by checking if the accreditation body is affiliated with the local or international health organizations?
  5. What is the duration of the hospital stay?
  6. Does the hospital have fully-equipped intensive care units?
  7. What are the screening and blood tests involve before the operation at the hospital?
  8. How long before do the tests carried out and what is the preparation phase like?

 

What is the policy of RevitalizeinTurkey?

We have been maintaining a highly painstaking process management system in which every quality component is subject to rigourous screening. Our aim is to ensure the highest satisfaction of each of our patients with proper guidance and high level of medical care. The surgeons that RevitalizeinTurkey work with are select surgeons with strong academic assets and credentials. Hospitals where the operations performed are  fully-equipped private hospitals certified by the Ministry of Health. The aftercare facilities are meticulously conducted by monioring the patient on frequent basis and playing a proactive role to make sure that patient's recovery process is a snag-free one.

  1. Our surgeon is accredited by Turkish Society of  Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. Turkish Society of Plastic Surgery is  Turkish regulative body that is equivalent to BAPRAS (British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery). Holding a title of professorhip in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, Prof. Seyhan has at the same time working as a part time lecturer at Celal Bayar University, School of Medicine.
  2. Having been performing plastic surgery operations for more than 15 years, Prof. Seyhan and Dr. Tokat has performed hundreds of successfull operations which has clinched his reputation together with his academic achievements. We believe that is the previous patient's "word of mouth reference" which shed light on the qualification of the surgeon. Up to now, hundreds of British patients operated by Prof. Seyhan.  Each one of the patient was very exhilirated with the end-result and was highly satisfied with the level of  amiable conduct and the professionalism of the surgeon. As RevitalizeinTurkey, we would be pleased to establish the communication link between you and our previous patients to enable you to  get the first hand feedback from our British patients.
  3. Patients Testimonials play the integral role to help you gauge the reliability and the qualification of the surrgeon. We are delighed to let  each of our prospective patients communicate with our previous British patients with a view to reassure them that they are on the right path.
  4. Unlike the practice of many other companies or surgeons, all of our operations are performed at fully-accredited Private Gazi Hospital in Izmir. Gazi Private Hospital is certified by the Division of Turkish Ministry of Health and is subject to the stringent regulations of Turkish Ministry of Health. All of the theatres of Gazi Hospital are equipped with state-of-art technology and  laparoscopic, endscopic, artroscopic medical fittings.
  5. Hospital stay with most of the operation packages is 1-2 nights.
  6. Gazi Private Hospital is a fully-established hospital to have even most of the complicated operations. Most of these complex performed are; cardiovascular, orthopedic and neurosurgery operations. Therefore, the hospital has an advanced imtensive care unit. All of the patiens following the operation are monitored at recovery rooms for about 3 -5 hrs with the oversight of the specially-trained team of doctors.
  7. After the thorough examination of the anastesiologist, the patient is proceeded with the pre-op tests which involve; bloods tets (hemoglobin, hematogrite and Complete Blood Count) together with X-Rays.
  8. The Blood tests are carried out during the preparatory phase at the hospital. The preparatory phase commences three hours before the operation.

 

Ask as many questions as possible until you are confident that your are in good hands.

 

Going abroad for surgery could provoke anxiety and apprehensions; as having the operation at a different country often triggers concerns, as there are a lot of questions associated with the surgery, surgeon, clinic and the hospital. It is, therefore, your fundamental right to ask as many questions as possible to make the rigth decision. You should make sure that all of your questions are dealt properly and accurately on a timely basis.

 

What is the policy of RevitalizeinTurkey?

Professional patient guidance and information has always been our main concern. When mapping out the surgical plan of the patient, we are purely dictated by the objective assesment benchmarks. One of our biggest commitment is to help the patient to make an informed decision; we are therefore, dedicated to heighten the awareness of the patient by offering an in-depth counselling.

 

Ask if the surgeon who is performing the operation has a "Medical Malpractice Insurance" 

 

Medical malpractice insurance covers doctors and other professionals in the medical field for liability claims arising from their treatment of patients. In the event of any surgical complication, you can seek liability and indemnity against Medical Practice Insurance.

 

What is the policy of RevitalizeinTurkey?

All of the surgeons RevitalizeinTurkey works has Medical Malpractice Insurance.

 

Who is going to take care of you; if you are coming alone?

 

Many patients plan to travel alone; however; the fear of being alone at a country which they have not been to before deter them to travel alone. If the patient is seeking to have operations which involve mobility restriction; such as, tummy tuck, thigh lift or any other multiple operation package; it might not be safe for the patient to stay alone during the hospital stay. Therefore, check if the service provider  has any contingeny plan in hand or is ready to provide any private nursing facility during your hospital or hotel stay.

 

What is the policy of RevitalizeinTurkey?

We offer private nursing facility to all our patients who are coming on single basis and are having mobility restricted operations such as tummy tuck, thigh lift and  other multiple operations. All of our nurses attend the patient on 7/24 basis by keeping vigilant at night time. Private Nursing facility incorporates the hospital stay; in the event of any request; our nurses can also attend the patient during their second part of hotel stay.

 

What is the follow-up check scheme like, how will your follow-up checks be managed?

 

After each operation, patients need to be closely monitored and checked routinely. The dressings should be changed in close intervals and the healing progress should be tracked by the surgeon during the initial recuperation phase. Make sure that your stay involves sufficient amount of time to complete the initial recovery period and to have the first round of checks completed.

 

What is the policy of RevitalizeinTurkey?

All of our operation packages involve 8 nights to 14 nights stay in which every patient is monitored with scrunity on alternate days. Furthermore, every patient is given a local mobile phone to communicate with the patient representative on regular basis. Each of the package involves at least two follow-up checks which is performed by the surgeon himself. If the patient's healing process is stunted due to any unforseen conditions, the duration of stay could extended to ensure that the patient is physically fit the fly back safely.

 

What if something goes wrong during my stay?

 

All of the operations have some inherent risks which  sometimes cannot be totally discarded. On the other hand, there are some factors that could help to minimize the riks. These factors are; first and foremost; the qualification of the surgeon, and the physicall fitness of the patient. The right choice of the patient is as important as the right choice of the surgeon. If you have any medical problems which are not duly addressed by the doctor, this could interfere with the operation and could end up with undesired consequences, however, it is at the same time, equally important for the patient to give as much information as possible about his/her medical history and provide all the data regarding his/her medical conditions.

 

What is the policy of RevitalizeinTurkey?

One of the primary issues that we focus is the risk assesment and professional patient guidance. With patient's indication of any medical problems, the patient screening process is handled with more scrunity and diligence. If the problem is found to be an element of hindrance that could interfere with the healing of the patient, we hold the discretion not to perform the operation.

 

What if something goes wrong after I go back to my home country?

 

With most of the operations, the complications usually tend to occur  right after the surgery or within couple of weeks following the surgery.  Though not frequently,  late complications could still come to the fore. The patient should be well aware of what potential risks that could occur at different phases of recovery; and take his/her guard to avert the risks by complying with the  post-operative care instructions given to the him/her . Failing to rely on the post-operative instructions and prescribed medications, any unforseen complication is at the risk of the patient. If a complication occurs independent of the patient's negligence, patient should resort to ask the assitance of the medical tourism company by seeking their liability. When signing the consent form, the patient should carefully read what  possible complicatons the selected operation involves and ask questions to the service provider, surgeon if there is any part he/she feels unclear or vague. It is equally important for the patient to check the liabilities of the service provider or the surgeon for any case of complication. If there are any private insurance policies designed for medical travellers, that should also be presented to patient's attention in order to help he/she to be on the safe side.

 

What is the policy of RevitalizeinTurkey?

RevitalizeinTurkey offers an undistrupted cycle of communication with the patient after the patient returns  to his/her country. Each patient is contacted routinely to make sure that the patient does not have any problem. In case the patient has any problem, speedy assistance is offered to the patient to help the patient to take the right action. In case of any serious complication that necessitate the direct involvement of the surgeon who performed the operation; we offer emergency follow-up packages;
