Harley Street Surgery Quick to Clarify Lifetime Aftercare Vs Warranty Issue
As is being clearly explained at the Harley Street Surgery news section, there has been much confusion regarding the difference between lifetime care and warranty in the plastic surgery sector.
Many people who have undergone plastic surgery may have been left with the impression that lifetime aftercare leaves patients covered for their whole lifetime, regardless of what has gone wrong – this is sadly not the case. As part of Harley Street Surgery’s commitment to customer service and transparency, they are explaining exactly what each cover programme offers. A brief outline can be found below:
Implant Warranty – This usually lasts for 10 years for a capsular contraction (the hardening or rippling of the breast) and the rupturing. The manufacturer will provide free implants in this case.
Aftercare – This is the visits to the surgeon or clinic following surgery.
Surgery Warranty – This is cover for any replacement or rectification surgery at no cost to the patient.
The key thing for consumers to be aware of here is the small print that many surgeries use with regard to lifetime aftercare. Often, they will offer the product but the terms and conditions will state that capsular contraction, rupture and complications are only covered for 3 years. It is this sort of procedure that costs the most amount of money as this takes even more time in theatre than the original procedure. Harley Street Surgery are keen for customers to be aware of this so they do not end up feeling misled.
Harley Street Surgery does offer an impressive 10 year warranty on their procedures, to learn more about this simply click this link (http://www.harleystreetsurgery.com/
