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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
All the information required, is covered in the medical form. Please complete it honestly before submitting.
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!

Post Operative Personal Responsibility
When you leave Cyprus, you will be either totally healed or very nearly. You will have no infections or discharge. You will be given specific instruction on caring for yourself and what to look for regarding infection. Cheryl always tells clients they can contact her or Dr Harris Zavrides anytime at all day or night if they have any problems no matter how small.
Until healed you are extremely susceptible to developing an infection at any time. If you do, it will have been contracted whilst you are in the UK. Caring for yourself and has nothing to do with having had the surgery in Cyprus.
You will be given simple and clear instructions on caring for yourself and warning signs to look for. We even give some clients a further course of antibiotics they can take if necessary, until they can see their GP.
If you choose not to:
- follow these instructions.
- contact Cheryl/Dr Harris Zavrides for advice should a problem arise no matter how small.
- take the additional antibiotics.
- make an appointment to see your GP or other health care professional.
then the fault and the responsibility lie with YOU!
The consequences of you ignoring any problems no matter how small could have an extremely serious outcome. If you have chosen to neglect the warning signs, your condition could very quickly develop into a full blown infection, resulting in skin necrosis (when skin dies!). Your condition may become so serious that you require hospitalisation and further surgery to remove areas of dead skin, and repair unhealed areas.
You may be treated very kindly and sympathetically by hospital staff and consultants. But chances are, you will be made to feel that you are wasting valuable resources when there are other more needy cases. Many professionals will say to you directly, “what do you expect? You went abroad for surgery” and “you’ve got what you deserve; now you expect us to put it right?”
If you think you will get sympathy and understanding form friends and relatives, think again! They can be much crueler.
For the majority, going abroad for surgery can be an enjoyable and positive experience with no complications and everyone lives happily ever after-or, it can be your worst nightmare!
