The dos and don’ts of plastic surgery abroad


Cosmetic surgery isn’t just for celebrities any more. It’s accessible to everyone, young and old, hoping to enhance their looks and feel good about themselves. But with so many procedures taking place and stories of complete body and face transformations hitting the media (for the right and wrong reasons) on a weekly basis, are we in danger of forgetting the risks associated with going under the knife?





Just as anyone would research before they bought a car or house to get the best deal for their money, more and more people are turning to Thailand, Poland and Brazil, for cut-price surgery. Very often it’s cheaper to have surgery abroad, even with the added flight and hotel costs. For example, according to Dr Jeremy Hunt, face sugery such a rhinoplasty, or nose job, can be a third of the price abroad, with hotels and food included.
But what are the risks of heading to different shores in the quest for the perfect face and body?
1. Different clinical standards
What’s considered standard clinical excellence in one country may not even hit the radar in another. Although technique and practice rarely differ, the standard of care you would expect afterwards can vary greatly country to country.  Regulatory bodies will have their own code of conduct for members, so it’s important to find out what care you can expect when travelling for surgery abroad.
2. Only meeting your surgeon on the day
It can take years to find a hairdresser that ‘gets’ you. So be wary if you’re only going to meet your surgeon on the day. What you consider big he may consider natural. What you call natural, he may call fake. What you may think is a little shave off the ridge of your nose, he may consider far too drastic. If the only choice you have is meeting your surgeon on the day of your surgery, at least schedule in time for a Skype chat, or even a phone call. If you feel your surgeon isn’t on your wavelength, it’s best to know beforehand.
3. Lack of easily available aftercare
After any surgery, it’s wise to carry on with aftercare as advised by your surgeon. This may mean travelling back to the clinic 6-8 weeks after treatment to check on healing and settling time or forfeiting your right to corrective surgery if something goes wrong. Legally, in the event of complications, it’s very difficult to consider compensation – after all, each country has is own laws.
Tips for travelling abroad for surgery include:
  • Getting the phone number of your surgeon for a Skype or phone-to-phone chat. It’s not as good as meeting them in person, by any means. But you’ll get an idea of how your surgeon sounds and can run through far more information than via email.
  • Ask about recovery times. What happens if there are complications? Are your rights void if you don’t go back for follow up appointments?
  • Check your surgeon and clinic are registered with the regulatory medical body of that country.
  • Check your surgeon is speaking your language, both literally, and when it comes to the look you’re after.
With a bit of forethought, keeping your wits about you and taking the time to find a surgeon, clinic and hospital that’s right for you, you can drastically reduce the chances of botched surgery abroad and have the body you’ve always dreamed of.

How to make perfect eyebrows

 Sprancenele mele sunt destul de rare si oricat am incercat sa le fac frumoase si dese nu am reusit. Chiar daca am un machiaj reusit, daca sprancele nu sunt accentuate, ceva lipseste si pare in neregula per total. Fardurile de sprancene nu sunt intocmai preferatele mele desi stiu ca multe fete le prefera. Astazi vreau sa va arat un gel pentru sprancene achizitionat recent, care-mi place foarte mult : DipBrow gel de la Anastasia Beverly Hills. Este un gel de sprancene pigmentat, are acoperire buna, eu aplic putin produs si pentru mine este suficient, este rezistent la apa - dupa cateva minute de la aplicare nu se mai ia usor, nu curge,  si ofera un aspect natural si mat sprancenelor. Vine in varianta mini si full size, eu am luat varianta mini si il folosesc de cateva luni, insa nu zilnic. Dar este genul de produs care rezista destul de mult. Periuta face aplicarea foarte usoara, poti chiar sa dai putin forma sprancenelor cu ea. Dar se poate achiziona separat orice perie de sprancene

Cum aleg lumanarile parfumate

 Buna frumoaselor, Astazi va vorbesc despre lumanarile mele parfumate preferate , Yankee Candle  . Fiind o amatoare de  lumanari parfumate , apropiatii stiu asta si de multe ori primesc si de la ei lumanari de la diverse branduri insa sincer va spun ca pana acum nici un brand nu m-a impresionat mai tare decat Yankee Candle. O fi din cauza mirosului persistent, a aromelor si formelor diverse pe care le au lumanarile lor sau poate le asociez eu cu amintiri frumoase pe care le am. Cand am musafiri, pe langa curatenie, gatit, mereu aprind si o lumanare cu o ora inainte sa ajunga, astfel incat prima impresie pe care o au cand intra in casa sa fie una placuta. Mereu am apreciat o casa cu un miros frumos. Sa stiti ca am observat de-a lungul anilor ca pana si casa/locuinta in care stai are un anumit miros, la fel si hainele. Si de multe ori cand simt un miros asemanator ma duce cu gandul la acele persoane.  Poate nu toti oamenii sunt asa dar eu sunt, fiind avida de parfumuri, mirosuri frumoase
