From the moment I contacted Medical Travel Czech Republic I felt I was in safe hands. The client representative was warm, friendly and very helpful, always quick to reply to my queries. Upon arrival, I was picked up from the airport with a taxi booked by my client representative. Even though my flight was severely delayed, Medical Travel did their best to accommodate this, and it all worked out, thanks to their flexibility.
Arriving at the surgery I had a very thorough complete health check with a very pleasant doctor. The surgeon is a well known plastic surgeon with excellent reviews from previous clients. I had complete faith in him when booking my treatment (upper and lower blepharoplasty and cheek lipo). After seeing the surgeon for a consultation after my health check, he explained what the best result would be for optimal results and symmetry. He explained how he saw my face from an experienced plastic surgeons perspective, and made sure I understood everything about the procedure beforehand. He also told me about aftercare. As a result of the consultation we decided to go for just the upper and lower blepharoplasty, something I am very glad we did!
The procedure was done with local anesthesia, and I was constantly reassured by the surgeon and his lovely assistant. I bled a lot, so I was made to stay at the clinic for a couple of hours afterwards. I was taken into a dimly lit room and put into a comfortable bed with ice packs on my eyes.The clinic provided me with an aftercare kit with liquid tape, eye drops, an eye mask and painkillers. I experienced no pain afterwards (the most painful thing is the anesthesia!), and did not have to take any painkillers.
After a couple of days I came in for a check-up and was examined by the same surgeon again. Everything looked good, and I was able to travel home the same day.
The healing process has been surprisingly fast. I removed my stitches after a week, and after that I looked pretty normal, and people weren't able to tell until they were up close. Now, more than 3 weeks afterwards, the scars are thick and raised which is normal. After 6 weeks they should start to go down and fade. I still have a bit of swelling, but no more than I expected.
Overall, my experience with Medical Travel Czech Republic has been nothing less than excellent. I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone seeking plastic surgery.
