The reservation form and the treatment agreement are given to you at your consultation.
Carefully follow the special aftercare instructions that you are given.

- Once you get home you can eat and drink as normal, unless you are advised otherwise.

Nails - contact lenses - false teeth - jewellery

- Do not wear contact lenses, jewellery or a watch
- You may possibly leave your false teeth in.

It is extremely important that you wash yourself thoroughly before the procedure.
It is also important for small procedures that you bath or shower the morning of your operation, and that you lather your body completely and rinse properly.
Remove all traces of make-up from your face, eyes, lips and neck.
Intravenous sedation and anaesthetic
The sedation takes some time to wear off.
To avoid feeling nauseous it is better not to eat anything during the hours directly after your procedure.
Patients who stay at the clinic overnight will be provided with a late evening meal and breakfast.
We will contact you a few day before your procedure. You will be given a date and time for your check-up.
Please make the necessary arrangements in advance for this very important appointment.
It is important that your surgeon is properly informed about any medication you are taking (as well as any drugs).
Bring with you all medication that you have been taking recently to the Wellness Kliniek. If you are taking daily medication (prescribed by your doctor) in most cases you can take it the morning of your operation.
Take your blood thinning medication, follow your surgeon's specific instructions carefully.
You need to fast before you arrive on the day of your procedure. You must not have eaten or drunk anything from midnight.

TOP destination : Premium Private Health Care in Belgium
All plastic surgeons and dentists are experts in their cosmetic field and are fully government registered in their medical specialty.
Wellness Kliniek Belgium stands for safe surgery. The hospital disposes of cabinets for aesthetic dental treatments, operating theatre rooms equipped with high-tech equipment for surgery, recovery care and private patient rooms.
* Rates are among the best in Europe and are all-care-inclusive, but they do not include any VAT. Since January 1, 2016, the VAT exemption for aesthetic surgery and treatments has changed. As a result of this change, the VAT exemption will be applicable only for treatments that aim at the 'medical care' of patients (and are as such included in the Belgian INAMI nomenclature). In the absence of such a target, 21 % VAT will be applied. Aesthetic dentistry remains exempt from VAT.
Planning your medical trip has never been easier! For people who have to travel a considerable distance, the clinic offers a unique Next-Day-Surgery service: your consultation and operation on consecutive days.
