UK citizens able to travel for transplant?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm scheduled for an FUE procedure with HLC on the 25th March. UK citizens are not allowed to travel for holidays, but I'm wondering whether anybody has already travelled or knows whether we can travel for cosmetic surgery?

 

Thanks in advance

Well I'm sure the travel corridors will ease by March 25th, but as of now only essential travel seems to be allowed. There's also hotel quarantine to those who return to the UK. 

Not really a great time for international travel tbh. Perhaps you could postpone it by a couple of months.

In the same boat, due to have a procedure the second week of March in Portugal. Doesn't look promising currently given their 'red list' status and UK cases stagnating and mandatory hotel quarantine (£1750). I'm concerned about legality of travelling for a hair transplant too even if hotel isn't necessary by this time. Wouldn't want to be hit by a huge fine. If anyone has any info would be greatly appreciated otherwise will have to postpone and lose the perfect recovery time of non-life under restrictions.

I've postponed to April now, hoping travel will be possible then and Portugal moves out of 'red list'. Would be interested in the flying protocols are if you're still travelling for March. What checks are in place, what airport you go from etc if you're able to report back?

Still planning on the 25th March? I've just read that a woman managed to travel for a boob job with a medical exemption form claiming back ache and anxiety as reasons for needing the procedure. I think all of us can cite anxiety for a reason. Might be worth a try, at least then it's not illegal and you're not at risk of a fine. Only issue is, I can't find out where you apply for these. Will require some further digging.

I've cancelled and booked a procedure with Dr Arshad in the UK instead (After reading lots of good reviews). Takes away the stress of travel restrictions, I think it's highly unlikely we will be able to travel in March anyway.

Oh really? Did you have trouble getting your deposit back? Also when is the earliest you could get an appointment with Dr Arshad?

Nope, HLC were very understanding regarding travel restrictions and are giving me a full refund. Managed to book an appointment with Dr Arshad for 16th March.

Wow, that soon? Looking at it now. Do you know if cost per graft comes down after 1k or 2k grafts or is it fixed at £3 per 1k?

As far as I know it's fixed at £3 per graft, they do offer some good interest free finance options though
