Plastic surgery is getting more and more popular these days. No surprise that there is a wide variety of cosmetic surgeries offered.
Breast enlargement is the most popular plastic surgery worldwide. It is performed on women who are unhappy with the shape and/or volume of their breasts. During breast augmentation various sizes of breast implants may be used giving desired bust as well as self-esteem boost.
Did you know that 1 in 3 women pursuing breast surgery requires breast reduction? For some women it is enough to remove a part of breast tissue in order to make breasts look aesthetically pleasing. However, usually it is performed together with breast lift. Breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation or breast reduction.
Demand for liposuction is one of the greatest among other cosmetic surgeries. Its popularity is mainly based on the fact that it is a safe and affordable procedure with a comparably short recovery period and visible result. On top of that, you can get a body you always dreamt of!
Tummy tuck (also recognized as abdominoplasty) is a procedure which eliminates sagging skin in abdominal area and rebuilds weakened or separated muscles leading to a smoother and firmer tummy. The skin usually sags after pregnancy or after losing a substantial amount of weight.
Face lift is popular cosmetic surgery performed in order to flatten the face skin and eliminate wrinkles or other consequences of ageing. There are several techniques of face lift, such as mini facelift, SMAS, and MACS. Some patients choose brow lift, eyelid surgery, or neck lift instead of the full face lift.
As men are getting more and more active in pursuing plastic surgery gynecomastia surgery is making its way to the top list of plastic surgery. Gynecomastia is a condition of enlarged male breast. During gynecomastia surgery extra fat and/or glandular tissue is removed in order to flatter chest.

During gastric bypass surgery the size of the stomach is reduced by almost 90 %. Therefore, onetime food intake capacity decreases significantly, making the patient feel full after eating a small portion of food. Studies show that gastric bypass surgery helps patients lose from 65 % to 80 % of their extra weight. Moreover, it helps treating diabetes type 2, sleep apnea, and gastro-esophageal reflux disease.
Gastric sleeve surgery is an operation during which the stomach is reduced by 70 %. The estimated capacity of the stomach after gastric sleeve operation is about 200 ml. It is performed laparoscopically, therefore, scars after the surgery are barely visible. The average weight lost within first year after gastric sleeve surgery is 30 % to 60 % of excessive weight.
Gastric band, placed on the stomach, reduces the volume of the stomach causing an early sensation of fullness. After the surgery patient‘s onetime food intake decreases significantly. Gastric band can stay in patient‘s organism for life. However, it may have to be replaced if it loses hermeticity, position or erode into the stomach. The surgery is performed using a laparoscope.
Gastric balloon is a silicone sack which is placed in the stomach in order to change one’s diet and lifestyle. During the procedure surgeon estimates the upper gastrointestinal tract using endoscopic camera and places a gastric balloon in the stomach. The balloon creates a feeling of fullness while eating small portions. Gastric balloon should be removed after 6 months.

The phenomenon of traveling abroad for orthopaedic surgery is quite new. The main reason why this type of surgery is getting popular among medical tourists is the waiting lines in the home countries. Statistically a patient in the UK is forced to wait up to a year for an orthopaedic treatment.
Patients are travelling abroad for hip surgery, knee surgery, foot and ankle surgery, hand and wrist surgery, shoulder surgery, etc. The most frequent orthopaedic surgeries to travel abroad for are hip replacement, knee replacement, ACL reconstruction, knee arthroscopy, knee cartilage repair, and meniscus repair. Other popular surgeries among medical tourists are ankle fusion, cartilage stem cells regeneration, bunion surgery (Hallux Valgus), wrist fracture, wrist arthroscopy, wrist arthroplasty, carpal tunnel surgery, rotator cuff repair, shoulder fracture, etc.
Hip replacement is necessary when cartilage is damaged, smooth surface is lost and the bone is left exposed due to the inflammation of the joint. Hip replacement is seen as highly effective solution to fix physical joint damage, eliminate the pain and restore joint’s ability to function.
Knee replacement surgery is usually done when due to osteoarthritis the joint wears off. In the knee replacement operation the worn off and arthritic parts of the joint are removed and replaced with a new, artificial joint (also known as prosthesis).
ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstruction surgery is a procedure during which the impaired anterior cruciate ligament is replaced with a new ligament which comes either from your own body or a donor. Since ACL cannot be reconstructed by simply stitching it together, surgeons do it by grafting a new tissue which allows new ligament to build up over it.
Meniscus is a part of the knee that is often injured during sports. Meniscus tear may also develop gradually over period of time because cartilage begins to lose its elasticity and resiliency. Since meniscus has no blood flow it cannot recover from the damage naturally meniscus tear may be repaired. Meniscus replacement surgery is done when the tear is so severe that it cannot be repaired.
There are several ways to repair the worn knee cartilage. Microfracture is a treatment used to stimulate the body to grow cartilage in an area of damage. Cartilage transfer involves moving cartilage from healthy part of the joint to the damaged area. Cartilage implantation is a new procedure used to grow stem cells and implant cartilage.
Achilles tendon rupture surgery is performed when Achilles tendon is torn into two pieces. It often is sports related injury which happens while playing basketball, tennis, football or jogging. This surgery is arthroscopic and requires only few minimal incisions in the back of the leg.
Rotator cuff gives shoulder strength and stability. It is usually torn either because of injury or due to the loss of strength and quality of a tissue from repeated overhead activities necessary at work or in sports. Rotator cuff tear repair surgery is recommended when non-surgical treatment does not alleviate the pain and it progresses.

Infertility is a growing problem worldwide. Thanks to development of modern medicine, there is quite a wide range of infertility treatment options for both, man and woman. Treatment may include hormonal therapy, surgical techniques, sperm retrieval and assisted reproductive technologies (intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization).
In vitro fertilization (IVF) – IVF is such treatment method in which the egg cells (female reproductive cells) are fertilized with the sperm cells (male reproductive cells) in a laboratory dish. Fertilized eggs split and become embryos which are placed into the woman’s womb.

No doubt that dental treatment is one of the most costly medical services worldwide. It is one of the main reasons why having dental care abroad does not surprise anyone anymore. Lithuania has a lot to offer in this field as well.
According to statistics, 69% of 35-44 year old adults have already lost at least 1 permanent tooth due to various accidents, gum diseases, failed root canals or tooth decay. 24% of adults lose all permanent teeth by the age of 74. Dental implantation is the best and the most reliable treatment used for the replacement of missing teeth.
The approximate price for having one dental implant in the UK is EUR 3,500. The price for the same procedure in the Scandinavian countries may reach EUR 4,000 and more! In Lithuania, having the same brand of dental implant will cost you only EUR 1.340. Why?
Firstly, it is because of lower hourly wage in Lithuania. Secondly, the professional liability insurance is much cheaper here in Lithuania thus healthcare does not have to pay so much for insurance companies as it is usual in Scandinavian or Western Europe countries.
One of the most desirable dental care procedures is having dental veneers applied. It guarantees a shiny and beautiful smile but threatens to thinner your wallet. Not in our clinic! In Lithuania you can get porcelain veneers for EUR 400 only and enjoy having a smile worth Hollywood!
Having your regular dental treatment such as dental filling, teeth whitening, root canal treatment, oral hygiene and dental restoration, while being abroad may save you considerable amount of money!
