Your initial consultation will consist of a review of your medical history, clinical examination, and a full discussion of your particular expectations. Rajiv will want to listen carefully to your concerns and also understand your motivations for desiring surgery. The nature of any proposed treatment will be carefully explained in detail including the recovery time, your anticipated result, and the potential risks of the operation. The consultation fee is payable after your appointment and can be made by either online banking, cheque, or cash. The fee also covers a further preoperative visit within 6 months should you require more information before considering surgery.
Most cosmetic surgical procedures are not covered by health insurance (such as BUPA or PPP etc.). A detailed quote of the total cost will be given to you after your initial consultation so that you are aware of all the expenses involved before deciding on surgery. This will include a surgical fee covering all routine post operative care and visits, an anaesthetic fee as well as the hospital “package price”.
Settlement of surgical and anaesthetic fees for procedures is requested six weeks in advance of your operation date and can be made by either online banking, cheque, or cash. For lengthy surgical procedures, a non-refundable, non-transferrable deposit will be required to secure your operation date. Should you cancel your operation with less than six weeks’ notice there will be an additional cancellation fee.
Hospital accounts should be settled in the week preceding admission and both The London Clinic, and The King Edward VII accepts a wide range of credit cards as well as personal cheques and cash. Following surgery, the hospital may make an additional charge for some take home medicines as well as any unexpected x-rays or blood tests that you may have required during your stay.
