Medical Tourism With Dr. Stavrou Plastic Surgeon In Cyprus

Dr. Demetris Stavrou is a well-established and board-certified (EBOPRAS, ASPS) plastic surgeon in Nicosia and Limassol, leading the Institute of Plastic Surgery (EIPS) since 2012. He is also a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Nicosia Medical School.

Dr. Stavrou strongly advises patients to carry out extensive research before committing to any type of cosmetic surgery in a foreign country. Often patients think that anyone with a medical degree can perform plastic surgery. But this is certainly not the case. Patients should ensure that their plastic surgeon is qualified and experienced in cosmetic surgery before proceeding further.

If you decide to proceed with plastic surgery in Cyprus, make sure you meet the surgeon in person first and check out the surgery facilities. You should feel comfortable with both the surgeon and the environment of the hospital or clinic. The relationship between the doctor and patients should be based on trust, not on how much money you will be saving. Remember, safety comes first.

Ensure that your cosmetic surgeon has received extensive specialized training in plastic surgery procedures through accredited plastic surgeon residency programs and fellowships. For example, Dr. Stavrou mastered the most advanced surgical techniques during the “Advanced Aesthetic Surgery” fellowship in Melbourne, Australia.

Dr Stavrou collaborates with the most accredited and prestigious hospitals in Cyprus – Nicosia and Limassol – to perform his procedures. He wants his patients to receive medical care of the highest standards and safety within a comfortable, luxurious and friendly environment with cutting-edge medical facilities.

Centrally located on the island, Nicosia serves as Cyprus’ administrative, political, financial and cultural capital. With more than fifteen museums, Nicosia has something for every taste.
