HOW MUCH DOES A PLASTIC SURGERY COST?
The operation cost is affected by fairly large number of factors. Main factors are the level and experience of the doctor, the cost of material (for example, implants of the mammary glands), the complexity of surgical intervention, as well as the price index in a chosen country.
The pricing index occupies the main place on this list, along with the experience of the doctor. The price policy for the operation using identical consumables performed by a plastic surgeon of professor level can fluctuate in range (for example, breast augmentation with anatomical teardrop shaped implants without tightening the breast skin using an implant of brand Mentor in Israel will cost 11000-12000 USD, whereas in Turkey the cost will be in the range of 3500-4500 Euros).
The quality of medical services and safety for the patient is confirmed by the availability of international certificates and accreditations. We personally check the compliance of medical centers and doctors with the declared qualifications and accreditations, regularly visiting clinics. Thus, when giving recommendations we are always confident in our words, but only the patient has to decide about his/her choice. The difference in price between countries is natural and does not affect the quality of medical services, provided a truly highly qualified doctor and a certificated medical center.
