Guide to Getting a Cheap Boob Job
It is very difficult to compare boob job prices, since each clinic offers a different service, as well as price offers and a different experience as a whole. Finding cheap boob jobs may include various means, like phoning clinics around and comparing prices; to determining the proximity and suitability of the clinic to where you live, thereby taking time and money to be spent in consideration. Another very common option is having the boob job abroad. Boob job prices can vary greatly with prices normally ranging from £3,000 to £5,000. The prices are not transparent and these varied prices for boob jobs can be determined by various factors. Typical factors include the expertise of the surgeon, the reputation, experience, and location of the clinic to the type and size of the implant chosen(with silicone implants generally more expensive than saline ones); as well as other factors such as - the cost of the anaesthesia, and the aftercare package offered. Having cheap boob job abroad; be informed about the pros and cons The obvious and most prominent consideration for people going abroad for boob job is the cost of the treatment. Cosmetic surgeries, such as breast reduction in particular, is a lot cheaper abroad than it is in the UK. For instance, a typical boob surgery in the UK could cost anywhere from £3000 to £5000. According to 'Treatment Abroad PriceWatch Survey 2008' - an independent survey of medical tourism prices, Cuba offers the cheapest cost of Reduction Mammoplasty, offering 81% UK saving price. More westernised countries, such as France or Belgium, can offer savings of 40% and 45% respectively. For those who do not mind the distance, countries like India and Thailand offer huge savings of up to 65% and 57% respectively. So, that often means patients can pay for their surgery, flight and a week or two at a top accommodation for half or maybe even as little as a quarter of what they would have paid back at home. Now enough of the financial aspect and let's look at the risks: It is worth noting that The Care Quality Commission, the body responsible for regulating and checking cosmetic surgery in the UK does not cover procedures done abroad, and therefore won't be able to help, should you experience any problems. Another thing is the travelling distance - how well you can cope with the discomforts of having a seatbelt and a long haul flight home after the surgery, is to be considered. Moreover, despite what many people think, you are not on holiday and to think that, once you’ve had the surgery in an exotic location that you will be able to bask in the sun and soak up the beautiful scenery would be a stupid idea. It should be remembered that there will be swelling, a lot of pain, and bruising; so it is vital to decide if you would rather feel like covering up for a few days rather than showing off your body at this time of your recovery. Conclusion: Before you go for the cheapest boob job abroad, make sure you know if the surgeon or/and clinic will offer the highest quality of care you need. The importance of finding a reputable and legitimate surgeon can not be emphasised enough. Most surgeons are highly skilled and experienced people who only want the best for you; while there are also a few questionable surgeons who are not qualified enough, yet are undertaking surgery for financial reasons alone. However, after having considered the pros and cons, if you still decide to go through, make sure that the surgeon you go to is a valid 'Board Certified'. This means the surgeon is a member of a professional group. This group will be very similar to our BAAPS or The British Association of Cosmetic Surgeons. Some surgeons have also undergone their specialist training here in the UK and are listed on the Specialist Register for Plastic Surgery, held by the GMC. Therefore, it will be wise to look out for surgeons that may have an UK registration.
