dr alejandro nogueira

You can get your chosen body area treatment covered by a Cosmetic Plastic Surgery revision protection in case you need a finishing touch or a full reintervention within the Surgery Shield conditions; not taking any cover makes you bound to fully pay any reoperation.

  WHAT IS THE SURGERY SHIELD?

  • Surgery Shield is Lowcostmetic's unique and exclusive provision of services extension under which your relationship with us goes beyond the realization of the treatments purchased, adding the cover a long series of unlikely but possible situations requiring revision surgery due to their well known association to the body areas treatment undergoing surgery.

  WHY DO YOU OFFER SURGERY SHIELD?

  • Under a realistic and unveiled point of view we have to bear in mind Cosmetic Plastic Surgery is above all a modality of Surgery, like any other kind of surgery within other surgical specialities, sharing the same medical, biological and technical core principles, among which there is always a certain rate of complications affecting a number of patients operated on, no matter how much doctors and hospitals strive to minimize them, we all know they occur in spite the best course of action to prevent them is applied.

 WHICH CONDITIONS ARE COVERED?

  • Each body area enjoys a complete list of situations, conditions and diagnoses covered by the Surgery Shield, suitably chosen among those typically associated to that body area treatment revision surgery following criteria of statistical likelihood for their occurrence, technical magnitude of their consequences and pre or postoperative psychological distress sourced on them potentially afflicting the patients.

 WHAT IS EXCLUDED FROM THE COVER?

  • Conditions which are not expressly covered by the Surgery Shield, are preexisting to surgery or were excluded from the therapeutic agreement, like asymmetries, deformities, base anatomical features, genetical characteristics and others, both were known and disclosed by the patient or the opposite; reasons needless to mention.

 HOW MUCH DOES IT COVER?

  • Surgery Shield may be customized to suit your budget and goals of protection, allowing you can freely choose individually the cover amount purchased for each body area treatment, under which you might get revision surgery free of charge up to the amount covered per each area.

 HOW CAN I CUSTOMIZE AND PURCHASE MY COVER?

  • You can play with the Quote Calculator in order to configure its settings; in it you can set the treatment areas you wish to cover, the amount of cover for each of them and in return you obtain the price you have to pay to purchase such Surgery Shield cover.

 WHICH COVER DO YOU RECOMMEND?

  • Based on our vast experience we are in a position to provide a realistic and reliable advice regarding each body area treatment recommendable cover amount, considering relevant aspects of the most common and likely revision procedures of that area and the potential revision surgery financial burdens on you; we strongly recommend you stick to our advice or at least do not stay much below it; any additional cover beyond our recommended Surgery Shield would be always to your advantage in case issues arise.
