anesthetist fees, clinic stay, implants costs (if needed), all
the expenses of transportation, and extended hospitalization for

In case of implant surgery complications: The surgeon will
guarantee for the client that the implants or prosthesis used
comply with the necessary health and quality standards. However,
as with any operation there are certain risks with implant
surgery: - Body implants (Breast and Buttock implants) - Facial
implants (Cheek, Chin, Nose). The most common risks include
bleeding, infection, body rejection, asymmetry, and scarring.
Although these events are usually infrequent, they sometimes can
occur. Our surgical guarantee covers implants complication
relating to asymmetry, any technical problem or a surgeon’s
mistake; so you will not be charged for a revision operation to
correct an undesirable result.
Capsular contracture is not considered as complications but as
abnormal side effects. Treatment costs remain at the patient’s
charge. In case of body rejection of the implant, the surgeon
may decide to remove the implant(s) from the patient's body not
to put his/her health at risk. If this should occur there is no
charge for our medical team's professional services (surgeon's
and anesthesiology professional services), but surgery center
facility charges, and any other ancillary expenses are the
responsibility of the patient.
