Why have cosmetic plastic surgery in Athens, Greece?
Are you considering Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in another country? Medical Tourism is gaining popularity and Medical Tourism in Athens Greece is a particularly beautiful place to have your cosmetic plastic surgery. Undergoing cosmetic and aesthetic plastic surgery by a renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who is a diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery with the highest credentials at his location in Athens Greece has both financial and experiential merits.
Dr. John Anastasatos splits his time equally between Beverly Hills and Athens, Greece since 2021. As a result, patients can now receive world-class, state-of-the-art, Beverly Hills level of plastic surgery, in Athens, Greece. Dr. John Anastasatos is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a plastic surgery expert for the Medical Board of the State of California. He has been practicing in Beverly Hills and Southern California for the past 17 years. Before that, Dr. Anastasatos was an attending plastic surgeon and Assistant professor of Plastic Surgery at the University of Alabama in Birmingham for 3 years. He has 20 years of experience in plastic surgery and the management of complex operations such as revisions. He is recognized by “US News and World Report” as one of the top plastic surgeons in the United States. He is a graduate of Brown University Medical School with honors and trained in surgery at Columbia University in NYC following his medical school training. He is an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery, the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
In 2020 Dr. Anastasatos created his clinic in Beverly Hills which is called “Los Angeles Plastic Surgery”. It is one of the most respected clinics to have plastic surgery in Los Angeles. Furthermore, it is unique in that it offers the whole spectrum of plastic surgery operations. The list is long and includes but is not limited to: facelifting procedures, rhinoplasty, lip lift, ear reshaping, nose reshaping, breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, gynecomastia, liposuction, tummy tucks, mommy makeovers, thigh lifts, arm lifts, calf reduction, pectoral implants, calf implants, buttock implants, hip implants, Brazilian buttocks lifts, post-bariatric plastic surgery, vaginal rejuvenation, etc.
Moreover, Dr. Anastasatos offers the whole spectrum of injectable procedures such as Botox, Dysport, Restylane, Juvéderm, Teoxane, Radiesse, Renuva, etc.
Is there an advantage to getting injectable filler therapies in Athens instead of the United States?
In Europe, more fillers exist than in the United States. Even the major brands like Juvederm and Restylane have more products available for use in Europe than in the US. This increased variety is an advantage for better customized facial and body contouring. In addition, fillers and injectables are cheaper to buy than in the US. They are exactly the same products from the same companies yet they are cheaper in Athens than in Beverly hills. This is true for most medications in general. I offer these discounts back to my patients.
So, patients who come to Athens for a vacation can easily get a liquid facelift at a cheaper price and lesser cost than they would in other parts of the world. Most of my patients who come to Athens to get cosmetic plastic surgery procedures will take advantage of the more attractive injectable and filler process.
Is it cheaper to have the same level of plastic surgery in Athens vs Beverly Hills?
The cost of any plastic surgery procedure is the sum of the costs of anesthesia fees, hospital/Operating room fees, implants (such as breast implants), and surgeon fees.
In Beverly Hills and most major US cities like New York and Los Angeles, the costs of the operating room and anesthesiologist are considerably higher compared to Athens, Greece. In Athens, I perform my operations at the finest private hospital offering the most sophisticated care and security. My anesthesiologists in Athens are as good or better than the ones in Beverly Hills. Yet the fees for operating room use and anesthesia are cheaper. I pass these savings on to all my patients, which in turn lowers the total cost of surgery.
My fees for my work are the same in Athens as they are in Beverly Hills and globally. The quality of the work is the same regardless of the place and cannot be discounted.
For these reasons I can offer the same quality of work in Athens as I do in Beverly Hills to the most sophisticated and demanding of patients from around the world.
Is there an added benefit to having my cosmetic surgical procedure in Athens, Greece?
Yes, there is an experiential benefit.
You have the option to recover at fine hotels and while you recover explore the sites and culture of one of the most important and influential cities of the world. These services can be arranged for you at an additional fee.
In essence, the extra money that you would pay for operating room fees and anesthesia fees in Beverly Hills can be used to enhance and expand your plastic surgery experience. Perhaps make it unforgettable.
The experience is important.
I often hear from patients how they experienced serious pain and discomfort from their plastic surgeons especially if they traveled to less sophisticated countries for cheaper plastic surgery. This will not happen with my practice and my cosmetic services.
The relationship between you and your plastic surgeon is one of the most important relationships in your life because the effects and results of that operation will become part of you for life and cannot be totally unchanged.
In summary, if you are in the United States, Great Britain, Switzerland, Russia, or the Middle East, and you are interested in getting cosmetic plastic surgery by a world-class plastic surgeon like Dr. John Anastasatos, and at the same time explore the city of Athens while you recover (carefully of course), then this may be a unique opportunity for you.
