I decided that I wanted to go abroad for surgery. I knew that Prague was at the forefront of Plastic Surgery, so went on-line to look at my options. I immediately came across Medical Travel Czech Republic, the reviews about them were all positive. I made contact via their online form stating what I was looking for. Within a day I had received a response from Martina, a co-ordinator. She gave me the option of lots of surgeons based at varying clinics, and the full background information on all of them. I chose to go with Dr Vasek at Forme Clinic. I had seen details of his career history, medical registrations and what his specialism was. Just to make sure, I cross-referenced all of this with a check via the internet, and everything was totally accurate. I can honestly say that I felt very lucky to have access to such an amazing surgeon through this company.
I was asked to send photos through for Dr Vasek to review, and following that I was given a price for my surgery - a fraction of what it would have cost in the UK, and carried out by a surgeon who is at the top of his game (I had also seen pictures of his work, and was very impressed),
Martina checked out suitable flights for me, booked my surgery (for my chosen date - secured with a deposit), arranged my accommodation (fitting around the two nights that I would be a patient in the clinic, and arranged for a taxi to collect me from the airport - at MTCR expense - (she also booked my taxi back to the airport from me when I was due to go home). I booked the flights that she recommended and was ready to go. I had everything in place within two days. Martina ensured that she was in contact with me through every part of the journey. Unfortunately, I did not get to meet her as she had to self isolate, but she did arrange for her colleague (Barbara) to meet me at the clinic and attend my consulation with me. Barbara was equally as lovely and helpful.
At my consultation, Dr Vasek was very honest and refused to do any procedure that I didn't need: something that I really appreciated. He was very personable and open about what the procedures would entail. I liked his manner, professionalism and knowledge.
Prior to having surgery, unlike in the UK, I had to have an ECG, blood tests, urine test and covid test to ensure that I was fit for the surgery.
My surgery was a three-hour procedure and went great. I was surprised that I did not feel any pain whatsoever. The nursing staff at the clinic were fantastic, and nothing was too much trouble. During my stay at the clinic, Martina was in touch with me to ensure that everything was okay, and was very supportive.
Before the surgery and when I left the clinic I stayed in the apartments above it. They are great, and I would highly recommend them. Martina also contacted me after the op to say that if I felt lonely or anything that she would call me and chat, or that I could call her at any time.
I honestly cannot recommend this company enough, they definitely have all the best contacts, are organised and professional - everything flowed superbly from start to finish.
I have come away with amazing results following my surgery which was: neck lift, lower/mid facelift and upper blepharoplasty. I was informed by Dr Vasek that I would get a high-end result (he is very realistic on outcomes) - this is becoming more and more apparent every day. He honestly is amazing.
I will be using Czech Medical Travel again in the near future.
