Patients Safety

Dear patient,

For your own Safety we advise you:

  1. Not to trust your health in hands of foreigner /stranger travelling doctors, because you might need them after they have returned to their countries. You should ask yourself how responsible they behave towards you. How successful they are? How they find so much time to travel around, with all the work and success they are claiming to have.
  2. Do not receive any treatment in non-medical facilities, such as beauty salons, hair salons, gyms and private homes. All medical procedures may have some side effects that will require immediate attention. Be aware that none of the above places have the facilities to treat complications.
  3. Be careful of misleading promotion. The use of terms such “Facial Plastic Surgeon”, “Facial Cosmetic Surgeon”, “Oncoplastic Surgeon “ is considered to be misleading. Nowhere in the world, there are such medical specialties. The only specialty recognized is the Plastic Surgery Specialty. Due to regulations, doctors in Cyprus are allowed to present themselves, only with the title recognized by the Cyprus Medical Council.

HOW TO SELECT YOUR PLASTIC SURGEON

  1. The decision for a medical procedure, cannot be done via telephone or personal research eg.via the internet or magazines. The information is general and may not be related to your own personal situation.
