No surgery is risk-free, and complications can arise after surgery in the UK or abroad.
If complications arise after an operation carried out in the UK, it is the surgeon’s responsibility to provide follow-up treatment.
When patients seek cosmetic treatment abroad, aftercare is not always straightforward.
Some overseas clinics may not provide follow-up treatment either at all or up to the same standard as in the UK.
Also, overseas clinics may not have a healthcare professional in the UK that you can turn to if problems arise.
