We have all heard the horror stories of those people travelling to overseas locations for ‘cheaper’ plastic surgery procedures and returning with a botched surgery job; or in the extreme case of Rachene Hutchinson, a New York woman who travelled to the Dominican Republic for a plastic surgery procedure, who did not return at all – dying on the operating table.
If you or someone you care about is looking into a plastic surgery procedure then consider keeping the procedure within Australia – for a number of reasons. Australia has some of the most highly regarded plastic surgeons and specialist surgeons in the world. Every plastic surgeon throughout Australia must be a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). All members of ASPS have undertaken a minimum of 12 years medical and surgical education including at least 5 years of specialist postgraduate training. This differs from Cosmetic Surgeons – read more about the difference between a Plastic Surgeon and a Cosmetic Surgeon.
Understandably, those that consider travelling for surgery may also be captivated by the appeal of an overseas holiday, privacy and discretion whilst receiving surgery and the idea that they will return a new person without too many people within their close community knowing it even happened.
That is why we thought we should let you know about Dr. Mark McGovern based on Queensland’s beautiful Sunshine Coast at the Vie Institute – the longest established plastic surgery practice on the Sunshine Coast, first opening its doors in 1994.
Vie Institute is situated along a quiet stretch of river at Cotton Tree. Their rooms take full advantage of the beautiful views of the sparkling waters of the Maroochy River, looking out across the river mouth to Mudjimba Island. The team at the Vie Institute are warm, informative, discreet, and extremely professional.
Dr. McGovern and his team are well equipped and practised at making long distance consultations and make planning for your surgery very simple and easy. They can help to make your surgical arrangements for you, as well as help with holiday plans for you and the rest of your family if necessary.
Queensland’s Sunshine Coast is one of the most sought after holiday locations in Australia and for this reason it’s the perfect location for a holiday and perhaps the surgery that you are after.
VIE Institute offer a full range of procedures and treatments, so you may wish to consider more than one surgery/treatment at the one time in order to make the most of your time on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. VIE have all the latest technologies and qualified staff ready to give you expert advice with regards to how you can look your best.
So consider an option like this before endangering yourself with a cheap overseas surgery holiday. Not only will you have a quality Australian plastic surgeon performing surgery on your body, but you will have access to the essential aftercare that is so important in your recovery.
