Frequently Asked Questions
BECAUSE ARGENTINA HAS FIRST LEVEL MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS AND MEDICAL CENTERS EQUIPPED WITH THE MOST MODERN TECHNOLOGY (COMPARABLE TO THE BEST CENTERS OF THE UNITED STATES AND EUROPE). ARGENTINA HAS THE INFRASTRUCTURE AND THE PROFESSIONAL CAPACITY NECESSARY TO PROVIDE MEDICAL ATTENTION OF QUALITY TO PATIENTS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES AT A COST RELATIVELY LESS THAN IN THE UNITED STATES OR EUROPE.
ARGENTINA IS LOCATED SOUTH OF SOUTH AMERICA. THE SERVICES OF ARG PLASTIC SURGERY HAVE PLACE IN THE CAPITAL OF THE COUNTRY, THE CITY OF BUENOS AIRES, A VERY BEAUTIFUL CITY, OF EUROPEAN STYLE THAT OFFERS A GREAT VARIETY OF PROPOSALS FOR THE TOURIST: WALKS, SHOWS AND GASTRONOMY, AMONG OTHERS.
BECAUSE WE OFFER INCOMPARABLE ATTENTION AT THE MEDICAL LEVEL, AND A COMPREHENSIVE SERVICE IN THE EVENT THAT YOU SO WISH (IN ADDITION TO THE MEDICAL PROCEDURES: ACCOMMODATION, TRANSFER SERVICE). IN ADDITION, WE CAN OFFER OTHER COMPLEMENTARY SERVICES IN CASE THE PATIENT WISHES TO COMBINE MEDICINE AND TOURISM.
IN THE EVENT OF SURGICAL PROCEDURES OF PLASTIC SURGERY, OUR MEDICAL PACKAGES INCLUDE THE FEES OF ALL THE TEAM INVOLVED (SURGEON PLASTICO MAIN SURGEON PLASTIC ASSISTANT, ANESTHESIOLOGIST AND SURGICAL INSTRUMENTATOR), HEALTH EXPENSES, QUIROPHANN, ANESTHESIA, MEDICATIONS, AND DISPOSABLE MATERIALS
OUR SERVICES PRESENT STANDARD RATES FOR ARGENTINA (IT IS A PRICE SIMILAR TO THAT PAYED BY AN ARGENTINE OF MEDIUM CLASS FOR MEDICAL SERVICES). THIS FEELING THAT THE PRICES ARE VERY LOW OBEY THE CHANGEABLE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE ARGENTINE PESO AND OTHER STRONGER COINS LIKE THE DOLLAR AND THE EURO (1 DOLLAR IS EQUIVALENT TO ALMOST 4 ARGENTINE PESOS). (1 EURO ALMOST 6 ARGENTINE PESOS)
OF COURSE, FOR THOSE WHO LIVE IN INDUSTRIALIZED COUNTRIES, ARGENTINA IS A CONVENIENT COUNTRY.
ARG PLASTIC SURGERY ONLY WORKS WITH THE BEST MEDICAL PROVIDERS OF THE COUNTRY, WHO GO THROUGH AN EXHAUSTIVE SELECTION PROCESS BASED ON PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE. THE PATIENT CAN CONSULT THE CV OF THE PROFESSIONAL WHO IS GOING TO ATTEND HIM. ALL THE DOCTORS ARE MEMBERS OF THE ARGENTINE MEDICAL ASSOCIATION AND THE PLASTIC SURGERY SOCIETY OF BUENOS AIRES
ALL DOCTORS SPEAK PERFECTLY ENGLISH
IN THE EVENT THAT THE PATIENT DECIDES TO POST THE TRIP FOR PERSONAL REASONS AFTER HAVING MADE THE RESERVATION (30% OF THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF THE PACKAGE IN CASE OF RESERVING ADDITIONAL SERVICES), CAN REQUEST A REASONATION OF TURN FOR ANOTHER DATE. ARG PLASTIC SURGERY WILL MAINTAIN THE INFORMED PRICE FOR THE TOTAL PACKAGE FOR 3 MONTHS FROM THE DATE ON WHICH THE TRAVEL IS POSTPONED, ONCE AFTER THAT DATE THE SERVICE COULD SUFFER A RECOTIZATION. THE AMOUNT PAID BY THE PATIENT IN THE CONCEPT OF RESERVATION IS MAINTAINED AS PAYMENT ON ACCOUNT IN THE NAME OF THE PATIENT
ARG PLASTIC SURGERY RECOMMENDS TO DO ALL THE CONSULTATIONS BEFORE TRAVELING, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE ANY PRE-EXISTING DISEASE (FOR EXAMPLE: DIABETES, CARDIOPATHIES, HIGH PRESSURE, ALTERATIONS IN THE COAGULATION) THAT REQUIRES TO TAKE SPECIAL RAISES TO CARRY FORWARD THE PROCEDURE. YOU WILL BE SENT PREVIOUSLY A FORM WITH WHICH A CLINICAL HISTORY WILL BE CARRIED OUT AND IN CASE OF DETECTING SOME REASON FOR WHICH THE SURGERY CAN NOT BE PERFORMED YOU WILL BE INFORMED BEFORE THE TRIP
IN ARGENTINA, THE LAW INDICATES THAT THE PATIENT MUST SIGN A DOCUMENT INDICATING THAT HE SUBMITS HIMSELF TO A SURGERY BY OWN CONSENT.
IF YOUR INTERVENTION HAD COMPLICATIONS AND YOU SHOULD CHANGE THE COURSE OF TREATMENT, THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL WILL INDICATE YOU THE EXISTING OPTIONS SO THAT YOU CAN MAKE THE BEST DECISION. IN CASE YOU WERE NOT IN CONDITION TO MAKE A DECISION, THE DOCTOR WILL CONSULT WITH THE PERSON THAT YOU HAVE DEFINED AS RESPONSIBLE ABOUT THE PATH TO FOLLOW.
AT ALL TIMES YOU WILL BE AWARE OF THE SITUATION AND, IF NECESSARY, ARG PLASTIC SURGERY WILL OFFER YOU THE POSSIBILITY OF CONSULTING A SECOND OPINION FROM ANOTHER PROFESSIONAL.
THE DOCTOR INFORMS THE MINIMUM TIME THAT THE PATIENT MUST REMAIN IN ARGENTINA TO ACHIEVE A PROMPT RECOVERY. ARG PLASTIC SURGERY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DECISIONS TAKEN BY PATIENTS UNILATERALLY.
Pricing policy (for foreign patients)
Some of our patients have been struck by the fact that the prices are very low, wondering if there would be any kind of cheating or “fine print”.
No way is that treated. The exchange rate and economic conditions is what makes the difference when comparing prices of products available in your country versus those of the country you are going to visit. For example, one adult ticket for the cinema costs US $ 12 in the United States while in Argentina one ticket costs US $ 5. The film is the same, but the price is related to the economic conditions of the country.
Naturally, a person whose salary is paid in dollars or euros will see that other countries are very convenient destinations, economically speaking; especially when it comes to medical treatments.
We believe that ARG Plastic Surgery is a great option for people looking for high quality plastic surgery medical treatments in a safe and controlled healthcare environment and at the same time want to take care of their savings. We also believe that our service provides an excellent alternative for people who are dealing with very fair times and who need the procedures to be carried out in the shortest possible time, of course, with the quality and care that each case requires.
