There are certain reasons why you might qualify for cosmetic surgery on the national health service of either the United Kingdom or Ireland. The phrase that the UK NHS uses is, “cosmetic surgery is not routinely provided on the NHS.” But there are exceptions such as breast reduction surgery if a woman’s breasts are causing back problems. The NHS website also states that usually any cosmetic surgery would have to be paid for privately. The situation is similar in Ireland. If you are in this situation, here are your options.
Appeal Against the Decision
If your consultant decides that you don’t qualify for cosmetic surgery on the NHS, then you can appeal against that decision if you wish. It is known in medical circles as a second opinion. So, the first port of all for some people might be to appeal against the decision. Any decision made by the original consultant would be checked by a second.
Look for Cosmetic Surgery Options at Home
If you don’t qualify for cosmetic surgery on the NHS, then you could look for a private cosmetic surgery clinic in the UK or Ireland. There are plenty of options for you to look into. We suggest that you do your research here. Look at their websites and get a feel of how well run the place is. Ask for testimonials from others that have been there.
You should also ask to see their prices. This will give you a strong idea of how much cosmetic surgery costs in the UK or Ireland. You might be surprised at the high prices that they charge. But you don’t have to pay over the odds. There is another way.
Look to Lithuania for a Solution
The high prices charged in the UK and Ireland aren’t your only option. In Lithuania we are part of the European Union. That means we have the same levels of training, procedures and aftercare as the rest of Europe. You’ll find that we work in exactly the same way as your private clinic does back at home. The main difference you will find is that we charge a fraction of the price you would pay in the UK.
The NHS in England is working hard to eradicate what they classify as health tourism. But it is alive and well in Lithuania. We welcome people from all over the world to our clinic to help them look and feel better. If you are considering cosmetic surgery, then we’d love to talk to you.
Do Nothing About It
We suppose that the final option you have is to decide that cosmetic surgery just isn’t for you. The way you feel about certain parts of your body won’t go away over time. It is important to get a resolution as quickly as you can. The best thing to do would be to start a conversation about your desire to look better and feel better. This last option is like burying your head in the sand. We don’t recommend it.
