Cosmetic Surgeons Abroad
Our cosmetic surgeons are highly quilified with years of experience in cosmetic surgery, and are licensed and certified to perform such surgeries. Unlike the United Kingdom, cosmetic surgery in Slovakia is strictly controlled. Slovak legislation guarantees the strictest quality precautions compliable with European standards.
COSMETIC SURGEONS AND MEDICAL STAFF
Our cosmetic surgeons are certified by Slovak Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery (SSPES) which is registered with the International Confederation of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (IPRAS) as well as its European section (ESPRAS). Nonetheless our surgeons, clinics and hospital are registered by law with Health Care Surveillance Authority (HCSA).
The Authority HCSA has been established by the Act No. 581/2004 Coll. on Health Care Insurance Companies and Surveillance over Health Care and on Amendment and Supplementation of Certain Acts as a legal person which is vested with performing surveillance over provision of health care and public health care insurance in the field of public administration. The Authority is not entered in the commercial register.
REGISTRATION OF OUR PLASTIC SURGEONS
Slovakia has been the eastern part of Czecho-Slovakia until January 1993, situated in the heart of Europe. Along with Czech Republic our surgeons follow the same EU regulations regarding qualification and practice of our cosmetic surgeons. The same EU principles apply to all clinics and hospitals and patient care within Slovakia.
Good credentials can’t guarantee a successful outcome; however, they can significantly increase the likelihood of it. Patients interested in treatment in Slovakia should find a doctor who is certified by Slovak Association of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery, the one of boards recognized by the UEMS – European Union of Medical Specialists.
Certification by the Slovak Association of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery signifies that our cosmetic surgeons have had formal training in an accredited plastic surgery residency program.
A general surgeon in Slovakia is not permitted, by our strict law, to carry out plastic surgery procedures unless he/she undergoes an additional period of at least 5 years of specialization study, training, checks and a final exam in order to attain the certification as a Plastic Surgeon. Then, 2 additional years are required of continuous, documented practice in plastic surgery before a plastic surgeon obtains the full authority and competence as a certified Specialized Plastic and Aesthetic Surgeon.
YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT OUR COSMETIC SURGEONS
Our cosmetic surgeons completed at least 5 years of surgical residency training after 6 years of study at medical school, including at least two years in plastic surgery. They have passed comprehensive cosmetic and reconstructive surgery exams. Plastic surgeons are qualified to perform cosmetic and reconstructive procedures – everything from liposuction and facelifts to intricate wound repair.
Every doctor in Slovakia is registered with Slovak Medical Chamber (SKL – Slovenska Komora Lekarov). Its history is dated back to 1929. SLK revise standards in patient care within EU, requires membership and registration of Doctors of Slovak Republic, provides and records their medical post – gradual education.
