Benefits of Having Surgery in the UK

Benefits of Having Surgery in the UK

With the rise of travelling abroad to undergo cosmetic surgery, it’s important to understand why getting a procedure in the UK is so much better not only for your health but the final outcome too!

Not only are you closer to the hospital, but you can also understand the language, have access to support and guarantee the surgery provider is putting your safety first. 

Here are the top 5 reasons why you should choose to get cosmetic surgery in the UK as opposed to travelling to another country.    

February 21st, 2024 |Ask an Expert


One of the most common complaints about travelling abroad for cosmetic surgery is the lack of aftercare available. 

In the UK, however, aftercare is made a priority and often included in the cost of your treatment. Not only does it give you the opportunity to ask questions while you recover, but it also means an experienced nurse can deliver wound care. 

With us here at MYA, you will have access to quality aftercare and support from our experienced and friendly team. 

You’ll have a post-op appointment at your local clinical hub to check on your progress and healing. But, you’ll also be encouraged to contact us on our 24/7 call line whenever you have any questions or concerns to ensure a healthy recovery. 


Here at MYA Cosmetic Surgery, we take pride in using the highest quality implants, resources, and surgeons we can get our hands on. 

This attention to detail allows us to provide each and every patient with a safe and reliable experience that doesn’t put their health and well-being at risk. 

For breast enlargements in particular, we use the highest quality breast implants available, with a 96% patient satisfaction rate and a natural feel.   

For more information on the equipment and technology we use to give patients the confidence they need, get in touch with us today. 


Choosing a UK provider to carry out your cosmetic surgery procedure gives you the assurance that the surgeons have undergone approved training and stages to get to where they are today. 

This includes studying, earning certification to be able to perform surgery on members of the public, administering anaesthetic, and being accredited by the General Medical Council (GMC) for the best quality procedure available. 


Flying after having cosmetic surgery is a big no-no. It comes with a range of risks due to the confined space and circulating air, which can lead to long-term conditions like deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and infections in the incision site.      

Choosing to get your procedure in the UK means you don’t have to get on a plane to get home and recover. 

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is a regulated body in the UK that ensures surgical providers deliver high-quality care and meet clinical standards. 

MYA was graded as outstanding by the CQC for responsiveness, levels of care and safety, and effectiveness when it comes to treatments.

Revision surgery 

With us here at MYA, you will have access to revision surgery for up to 2 years after your operation. Under the conditions that you and your surgeon think are the most appropriate port of call, you will be provided with corrective surgery, hospital accommodation (when applicable), and nursing care free of charge. 

This level of aftercare and dedication to your final desired result is unlikely to be found if you were to travel abroad for surgery. 

You can also access it via a hospital and clinical hub that’s closest to you - no need to catch a flight to see us!
