Please see the respective procedure pages for further information about the procedure and risks and benefits involved.  This information is in addition to the information provided during your medical consultation.  If in doubt, consult your surgeon.

Every surgeon and Doctor should have up to date medical indemnity insurance and you are advised to inquire of your surgeon and doctor to check the most up to date position in this regard prior to proceeding with any surgical or medical treatment. Post-operative Nursing care is also undertaken by Nurses who are self-employed contractors and they are responsible for maintaining their registration with the Royal College of Nursing.

It is important to note, therefore that:

The decision to proceed with surgery is entirely between the Patient and the Surgeon.

Actual results may differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements.

The patient agrees to provide the surgeon with a full, honest and accurate account of their medical history as required. The patient understands that withholding information would be detrimental to him or her health and safety and could compromise the result of surgery. In the event that the Doctor or Surgeon discloses aspects of the medical history that were not disclosed at the time of consultation, they reserve the right to cancel the procedure in the interest of patient safety. In such cases, any fees paid by the patent are not refundable.

Harley Buttock Clinic reserves the right to alter the patient’s admission date and/or time of admission. The patient agrees that no consequential loss will be payable in such cases. Changes to surgery date are only ever made in unavoidable circumstances.

You must sign all documents as required to do so by your surgeon. By signing such documents you fully agree to the procedure(s) as outlined and discussed with the surgeon. By signing such documents you confirm that you understand the benefits, risks and complications of the procedure undertaken, and you accept them.

Cancellation due to medical conditions, which were disclosed at the consultation, are allowable without any charge. In such cases, we require a letter from your family doctor and /or specialist in this regard.

Failure to attend your aftercare appointments can compromise the results of your surgery. Failure to attend your aftercare appointments will invalidate your readmission policy.

If, after one year from the date of your surgery, your surgeon feels that future surgery is required to obtain the results anticipated, The Surgeon will consider making a contribution to the surgical cost, or, he might consider not asking for surgical fees, but rather only the hospital and anaesthetist fees.

If your surgeon decides that the results of your surgery are within acceptable limits, then future surgery would incur additional fees.  Your surgeon will make the ultimate decision.

If during the year following your surgery, you have a complication which is directly related to the surgery, you will not have any fees to pay to have a correction of this complication.

If during the year following your surgery, you have a complication which is not related to the surgeon’s work, you will have to pay for surgical fees, anaesthetist fees, and hospital fees.

Failure to follow the correct post-operative advice of your surgeon and changes in lifestyle, illness or the ageing process are not covered by the aftercare policy and in such cases, additional fees will be payable for any future surgery undertaken.
