Jenny: Highest quality Cosmetic Surgery at an affordable Price

by Jenny | Dr. Toncic | Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in Europe

This is my account of my experience when I visited Croatia for a Rhinoplasty and a Breast enlargement. My surgeons were Dr Toncic Senior and Dr Toncic Junior. I have decided to try and write a detailed description so that it may help other people, as I could not find a lot on the internet. As I wanted a Rhinoplasty I was very scared what would happen if I chose the wrong surgeon. I looked at three of the top nose surgeons in the UK but the price was around 5000 and I really could not afford that. If I went with a different UK surgeon it would cost around 3000 but I did not feel confident as I wanted someone who specialized in nose jobs. As a Guide, the cost of my surgery in Croatia was 4700 for the Rhinoplasty and breast enlargement. Then another 800 for flights, accommodation, taxis, ECG and blood tests. If anyone can explain to me how to load pictures on for people to view then I will do this and post a link. I have pictures of the staff, location and my results.

Day 1: 15/04/08
Very nervous. Got a flight from Luton to Zagreb with Whizz air. Arrived at the airport in Zagreb which is small but good, Boris the taxi driver who would be driving me everywhere over the next 9 days was easy to find. He was directly in front of me when I walked out the doors into the Foya. Boris had a sign with my name on.

He speaks little English but is fine for small talk and arranging times of collection and drop offs. He drove me for about 45 mins from the airport to a private doctor’s surgery for an ECG. This is required by Croatian law before any surgery involving a general anesthetic.
