Steps of Surgery
While the standard steps involved in a plastic surgery procedure are by far the same for all qualified candidates, patients thinking to get their procedures at an overseas destination must, however, consider some additional issues. For convenience, we have simplified the whole planning process for overseas patients by dividing it in to seven steps. These steps cover almost every pertinent issue that may need to be addressed.
- Initial Consultation and Procedure Booking & Scheduling
- Legal Requirements & Documentation
- Health & Safety Issues
- Personal and Emotional Considerations
- Traveling, Transportation and Lodging Arrangements
- Tourist Events Arrangements
- Procedure-Related Requirements
Don’t worry; you will not be alone while following these steps. Our overseas patient case manager will be responsible for guiding you through each step of the process from start to end. As soon as we receive your consent, she will contact you and request you to provide necessary information. Rest assured that whatever details you provide will be kept confidential and will not be shared with anyone unless and until the same is necessary for making arrangements for you. Even this will not be done without your consent.
On receipt of your information, your case manager will work out your medical visit plan in full detail and send you a copy of the same with a list of instructions. These instructions will be categorized under the above heads and will cover everything from your visa, passport and packing to mandatory vaccination, pre- and post-surgery dos and don’ts to matters related to currency exchange, payments methods, costs/prices of each of the element that you may have wanted to include in your tour package and even the conditions that would apply in case you to opted out or cancelled any one or more of these elements. Carefully consider each item on the list before finally signing your contract and feel free to discuss if you want any amendment(s) made. This is important because some of the items could not be unsubscribed at a later stage even if you wanted to. You will need to send back to us a copy of your signed contract form. This will let us know that we (you and us) have now effectively entered the proper contract.
From that point on, we will work closely with you to guide and assist you each step of the way untill you are back home and recovered as well. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you want a confusion clarified. We will even use our sources and contacts to help you out when you are stuck.
