How do I make a booking? When you have decided what procedure(s) you require, send us your photos on an e-mail
and by doing so, we can send you an exact costing. Or you can always give us a call on +357 – 22445588 , for a general chat and any concerns you have can be addressed quickly. We answer all e-mail and phone calls personally. No obligations at all to proceed, your choice!
How far in advance do I need to book? We obviously require as much notice as possible, 4 weeks is about right. This is so we can answer any questions you have, process your medical questionnaire, allow the surgeon to appraise your photos and book your surgery and accommodation if required.
However, under certain circumstances e.g. if you are already coming to Cyprus for a holiday, or if you live on the island, you may be able to have your surgery within 2 weeks.
Do I need a consultation in the UK before I come to Cyprus? Our opinion: it is not really necessary. Cosmetic surgery is not like any other surgical speciality in that you do not need a diagnosis. If you are not happy with some aspect of your body, you don't need someone else to tell you. It is your choice as to what part of your body you want to improve.
Yes, it may be reassuring for you to meet the surgeon who is going to perform the op prior to you leaving the UK. But then again many clients have told us of cases where the doctor who performed the surgery, was not the one originally seen. Many companies who offer this service are a group of Surgeons who take turns in consulting. Our clients trust Dr Harris Zavrides and so anyone considering coming for surgery can speak with our many satisfied clients. Personal recommendation from someone who has experienced surgery and the way things work is always the best.
How long do I have to come to Cyprus for? Always depending on what procedure you are having. The absolute minimum time is 7-10 days. This time period is enough for eye surgery, nose surgery, breast enlargements, and small liposuction procedures. Whatever procedure you are coming for, please remember you are coming for SURGERY-so do not expect to be out and about, shopping and dancing the night away, going on boat trips and jeep safaris!
Expect to feel sore, a little exhausted and fragile for between 2-4 days. You will have had an anesthetic and trauma to your body, so complete recovery is paramount. Two weeks is desirable, the first week for surgery and recovery, and then the second can be for a real holiday.
When do I pay for the surgery and accommodation (if booked with you?) Accommodation on arrival and surgery in EURO CASH either on the actual day or not later than 7 days post –op. You can also pay for the surgery two weeks before if paying by Bankers draft/personal cheque to allow for clearance. Receipts given. We do not ask for deposits.
What information do you require? All the information required, is covered in the medical form. Please complete it honestly before submitting.
What photographs are required and why do you ask for them? Photographs are very important and absolutely essential for Dr Zavrides to make an online assessment and to be able to give you an exact cost. Also many clients are under the impression that they need let’s say - a brow lift, when in fact they really need an upper Blepharoplasty. There is no way for Dr Zavrides to know what procedure is right for you without these photographs and makes giving the right advice impossible!
