How long will treatment abroad take?
Cosmetic Dental Treatment: Dentistry abroad will take either 5, 7 or 10 days, depending on the complexity of the treatment. Each individual session will generally take two hours, and depending on your personal preferences, there can be up to two sessions a day.
Laser Eye Surgery: The laser eye clinic is an outpatient clinic, and this means that after the glaucoma or cataract eye surgery you can return to your hotel room. The surgery will take up to 20 minutes and it is minimally invasive.
Orthopedic Surgery: For knee replacement and hip replacement surgery, the patient will be required to spend up to nine days in the orthopedic surgery clinic. Depending on the complexity of the surgery, orthopedic surgery can last up to several hours.
Cosmetic Surgery Abroad: Major plastic surgery procedures, such as breast augmentation, breast uplift, liposuction, tummy tuck, can last up to 4-5 hours. Each patient will need to stay in the plastic surgery clinic under observation for up to a couple of days (depending on the complexity of the surgery). On average, a 10 day recovery period is required for most plastic surgery abroad.
How many visits abroad will I need for my treatment?
Cosmetic dental treatment: In case of complex dental treatment plan, which involves dental implants or other two-phase treatments, two visits will be required. The timing of these visits will be decided based upon your holiday arrangements. Other cosmetic dental treatments such as veneers, crows or bridges or even full dentures can require only one 8 to 10 days stay, if no implants are needed.
For laser eye surgery, orthopedic surgery and cosmetic surgery, the medical treatment abroad requires one visit only. It is highly recommended that patients extend their stay after the surgery for at least one post-surgery check-up.
