HEADING abroad for surgery may seem like a good idea at first, but it’s the aftercare which is key.
Having an invasive treatment often means that checkups are inevitable – and no surgery is risk free.
And cosmetic surgery fans who are opting for the cheaper routes should be aware that it may end up costing them more if they head abroad after having to pay for flights as well.
The NHS website states: “It's important to do your research if you're thinking about having cosmetic surgery abroad.
“It can cost less than in the UK, but you need to weigh up potential savings against the potential risks.
“Safety standards may not be as high.”
