Germany is one of the few countries in Europe that can offer the same high standard of medical treatment found in the United Kingdom. Cosmetic surgery in Germany is a huge industry, and, as a result, the choice and quality available is quite superb. You will find fine private cosmetic clinics throughout Germany's major cities, most of which offer world class service and treatment.
Costs and Prices
The cost of cosmetic surgery in Germany is now very similar to the United Kingdom. As the Pound continues to fall against the Euro, the small savings that were available continue to slowly disappear.
However if you shop round you can still save some money. For example, nose surgery in Germany costs on average £3,500 while the price of the same procedure in the UK is now £4,500.
The vast majority of prominent cosmetic surgery clinics in Germany can be trusted to provide high quality treatment. However, it's important to do as much research as you can before making a decision. Every county in the world has it's fair share of inferior surgeons and clinics. Germany is no different.
Surgeons in Germany
In order to become a plastic surgeon in Germany, six years of medical school must be followed by another six years of specialist cosmetic surgery training. Only if a final exam is passed, can doctors then work as plastic surgeons. The German Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (DGPRÄC) is the main professional body in Germany for the plastic surgery industry.
Many German surgeons work in both their homeland and in the United Kingdom. Often, you may be able to have an initial consultation in the UK before traveling to Germany for the actual treatment.
