Why choose Hungary for cosmetic surgery

Hungary offers a range of excellent healthcare which visitors can take advantage of at a much lower price than in the UK, and it is only a short plane ride away - from London to Budapest journey time is two and a half hours. 


Hungary has for a long time been a popular destination for the Germans and Austrians, once they cottoned on to the fact that it was much cheaper to have their surgery in Hungary than at home.  Consequently over the past fifteen years or so the market has expanded and an increasing number of surgeons have emerged giving greater access to top class, affordable cosmetic and plastic surgery, general surgery, dental surgery and other treatments.


Until fairly recently however, Hungary hasn’t been a particularly popular option for British people seeking their healthcare needs abroad.  This is because Hungary wasn’t very accessible and it was cheaper to fly to other Eastern European countries.  However, following the launch of various budget airlines such as Whizzair, Jet2 and SkyEurope you can now jet over to Budapest from as little as £40 return and traditional airlines like British Airways also offer pretty good deals.

Cosmetic surgery is carried out in Budapest clinics with modern up-to-date facilities and run by internationally trained, English speaking doctors and surgeons, so with a high level of professionalism and a premium service you can effortlessly combine the cost of your cosmetic surgery treatment with a holiday in the beautiful city of Budapest.  For example in the UK a face/neck lift costs around £5,000, compared to Hungary where this would be around £2,000* (excluding flights etc).


Hungary is renowned all over the world for its high standards and advanced medical procedures, with many of their medical profession teaching and practicing internationally.  And being just two and a half hours away from the UK, Budapest is a very relaxing place to recover from surgery with the many rejuvenating thermal spas making the experience of having your surgery abroad a real ‘healthcare holiday’.


Furthermore, many of the dental and cosmetic surgeries run health tourism programs, organising the entire trip from flights, transfer, accommodation and surgical or dental treatment.


And with the lowest MRSA rates in Europe, access to high class and affordable cosmetic and plastic surgery, Hungary is a practical choice for your cosmetic treatment abroad.
