The world’s first insurance designed for cosmetic surgery patients, underwritten at Lloyd’s of London, has new software so practices can add it as an automated option.
The insurance package costs only £199 and is available for purchase online or via selected cosmetic surgery providers around the UK, some of which already choose to protect all their patients with one blanket policy covering their entire practice.
According to Juliet Bentley, who came up with the idea of the policy after undergoing cosmetic surgery herself; “Traditionally, hospital and clinic cover for complications runs out after a year, but Beautysure offers the only third party guarantee and can be renewed annually, covering the patient for the cost of any corrective procedures in value up to £4000.”
The policy covers a number a wide range of complications such as infection, capsular contracture, haematoma requiring draining of blood, scarring requiring surgical intervention and MRSA, among others. It does not cover aesthetic dissatisfaction.
