Press Release Summary: Many clients from Britain, as well as other European
countries, are getting used to traveling abroad for cheaper medical services.

Press Release Body: The great number of low cost service providers in air travel
or hospitality contributes to the steadily growing amount of travelers who cross
borders for business or leisure. However, what about the low cost destinations in
terms of plastic surgeries?
Recent statistics of the medical tourism industry show that the affordable medical
services outside the developed countries motivate people to travel in search of a
perfect look like never before. In 2007 in the UK alone, the number of the most
popular plastic surgeries that the British underwent such as breast augmentation or
eyelid formation was up by 50% compared to the previous year. Despite the severe
opposition and strong lobby of the local plastic surgeons, the number of aesthetic
treatments of British citizens traveling abroad has been growing dramatically.
The affordable price which is often the most powerful motive for making similar
decisions is not the only reason why patients seek good health care across the
border. Keeping ones anonymity is also quite an important issue for many
customers, explains Eva Bendova, manager who takes care of the
foreign clients. In cooperation with the top Czech medical clinics, her company
designed packages that include the medical treatment, accommodation, spa procedures,
sightseeing programme as well as transfers.
The average cost of the common nose reshaping operation, including all the
additional services, is about 1700, says Mrs. Bendova. Adding up the price of a
return ticket and some pocket money to make the stay not only affordable but
pleasant as well we come to some 2000. In the UK for example in BUPA Hospitals or
CApio, the same surgery alone costs between 4000 to 5500.
The surgeons in the Czech Republic, Hungary and many other eastern European
countries are qualified according to the standards of EU. The patients can thus get
not only the quality health service and individual treatment but they can also relax
in the numerous local spas or enjoy some sightseeing while paying less than half and
getting double. Such calculations naturally become very strong factor moving the
statistics of traveling for plastic surgeries even higher.
