The English patient at EUROKLINIKA

Jerzy Wilgus NZOZ EUROKLINIKA gazeta zdrowieThe number of foreign patients undergoing plastic surgeries at EUROKLINIKA is rising. The most popular surgeries are facelifts, laser liposuctions and breast augmentations. Foreign patients value the professionalism of Polish surgeons and the possibility of achieving their goals for a lower price. Here is an interview with Dr. Jerzy Wilgus – the head of EUROKLINIKA plastic surgery clinic in Katowice.

– What percentage of patients of EUROKLINIKA are foreign patients?

– A few percent. However, it depends on how you count it. Among them many are Poles living in the UK, Germany and Italy. They are acquainted with the medical offer of countries in which they work and live. A quick calculation and it turns out that a breast augmentation procedure – for instance in Germany – is 2-3 times more expensive than the same procedure performed here at our clinic in Katowice. The choice is therefore obvious. There are a couple additional factors which influence their decision. These are, above all, sentiment, the possibility of visiting their homeland, meeting with friends. Plastic surgery is a field in which having trust your doctor is of great importance. It is considerably easier to communicate about your intentions and reach an agreement in your mother tongue. A woman who is entrusting her body to a plastic surgeon wants to be sure that the doctor will do everything in a proper manner, with utmost care and delicacy. This type of mutual empathy is significantly harder to achieve in foreign clinics, where apart from one’s will to undergo surgery of no lesser importance is his/her affluence. I don’t want to generalize, but Poles may feel less comfortable there right from the beginning, unless their standard of living is the same as that of the inhabitants of those countries.

 – What about Germans, Brits, Scandinavians? What convinces them to come here?

– A plastic surgeon builds up his or her reputation and esteem through private recommendations of satisfied patients. A well-done surgery and happy patient is always the most effective form of advertising the clinic abroad and attracting new patients. Of course, of no lesser importance is the financial aspect – low prices attract foreigners to Poland, and one of the cheapest things in our country, as compared with more economically developed countries, are medical services.

– What’s the difference between a Polish and foreign patient?

– In general, both foreign patients and Polish emigrants tend to value their time. They arrive prepared for the treatment and surgery – they often ask questions by e-mail or phone about the treatment,  necessary tests, hospitalization, and the final price of the treatment and what influences it. They want to take care of everything by phone or e-mail. On the one hand, this has its advantages because there’s nothing more valuable to a doctor than a disciplined and self-conscious patient, but on the other it leads to impatience and imposing a much too demanding plan on oneself. Once I’ve had a patient who told me that after the liposuction procedure she must visit her aunt in Katowice on the next day, go to Wieliczka and in the morning fly back home. Unfortunately, our body is not a factory or assembly plant, where driving one screw takes care of everything. Our organisms have their whims, therefore caution should be of utmost importance for each doctor.

– Which type of treatment is currently the most popular among foreign patients.

For years now among the most popular surgeries are facelifts, laser liposuction and breast augmentation. Although the West European and Scandinavian plastic surgery market is substantially more developed, the prices in Poland are significantly lower. Foreign patients value the professionalism of Polish surgeons and the possibility of achieving their goals for a much lower prices than back in their own countries.
