We understand that any patient planning on having Plastic surgery has tons of questions. Because he/she is keen to have the Best Plastic Surgery, it is their right that we should answer all the questions in a professional way. This a summary of the Frequently Asked Questions at the Best Plastic Surgery.
An M.Sc. (Master of Science) in Plastic Surgery means that the bearer has concluded all the basic training in that field.
A Doctorate (MD) in Plastic Surgery means that the bearer has concluded the higher training in Plastic Surgery. He/She is registered as a consultant with the Ministry of Health.
A University Professor means that bearer is the top in his field, teaches both undergraduate and postgraduate students, examines them, supervises research. and has his own school in his field of expertise.
An FRCS is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England,
meaning that the bearer is an expert in that field, and has been admitted as a Fellow to this prestigious institution. This degree has unanimous international recognition… at the same level as the US Board Certification. The bearer describes new surgeries, examines candidates, reviews research, and teaches trainees worldwide.
Basically speaking, these are the top credentials that the Best Plastic Surgeon could achieve.
There are many hospitals in Cairo of the highest standard. Carefully selected hospitals conform to international standards of cleanliness and hygiene, equipment, infection control and safety, as well as those of technical expertise. Many hospitals have international certification (e.g. ISO9001, JCI) or collaboration with US hospitals (e.g. Cleveland Clinic).
Prof Wilson does not operate in any hospital without these credentials.
You might be surprised that 70% – 90% of plastic surgery procedures could be done with local anesthesia. These include liposuction, face lifts, eyelid surgery hair transplantation, nose jobs, scar surgery, eyelid surgery, and many others….etc. This is the worldwide figure, and the very same figure quoted from the Nile Cosmetic Surgery statistics.
Only very major procedures (10-30% of all plastic surgeries) demand general anesthesia.
With the technical expertise and surgical excellence, more than 90% of the procedures Prof. Wilson performs are day case surgeries, i.e. you go home on the same day! These includes face lifts, liposuction, nose jobs, neck surgery, ear surgery, all breast surgeries, hand injuries, scar revisions …etc. The nursing staff follow you up at home or in the hotel, and monitor your medical status.
In the remaining 10%, you might need to stay overnight in the hospital e.g in body lift.
It depends on the procedure! For small procedures 2-3 days would be sufficient but for more extensive or multiple procedures you would need 4-7 days. Even a face lift, with modern techniques and equipment, swelling subsides within a week. An exception to that rule is a rhinoplasty with bony work where you would need 10-14 days off work.
If you mean by recovery: feeling well and being able to carry on your daily routine, well for most surgeries 2-3 days are enough.
But if you mean by recovery meeting people without having any evidence of surgery, then for a filler injection consider 24 hours, for a breast augmentation, consider 2-3 days, for a face lift consider 7-10 days, and for bony nose job consider 10-14 days.
Remember that with the modern state of the art surgical techniques, recovery time has been reduced markedly. And with the Best Plastic Surgery in Egypt, recovery is even shorter.
This is different from complete healing of the tissues, which takes between 6 to 12 months depending on the surgery you undergo. This should be remembered when evaluating the end result after surgery.

Prior to your consultation, Dr. Wilson recommends that you list the top three things that bother you about your appearance as well as three things you like. He also suggests you bring photographs of yourself from 10 to 15 years ago if you are planning on having rejuvenation surgery.
You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your medical history. You should provide information about any medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments you have received, previous surgeries and medications that you currently take.
The Clinic has a very strict policy in limiting the patients’ waiting time before the consultation to less than 20 minutes, so please make sure you come on time for your appointment.
Yes, but it will be at a different appointment, usually 7-10 days down the road.
Well, you have to see Dr. Wilson first, and he needs to decide what surgery you need, type of anesthesia, ancillary procedures, preparation for surgery, …etc.
Then you will meet with the patient coordinator who will tell you the exact cost and payment details.
However, don’t worry… Dr. Wilson never lets financial reasons come in between him and his patients. He has pioneered the Affordable Cost Plastic Surgery without any compromise in excellence.

But then our pledge to every patient is that you will get the best care for your hard-earned Dollars, Euros, or Sterling Pounds, and every penny will be well spent.
For the great majority of procedures, 7-10 days are enough.
Prof Wilson recommends you come ready for the procedure and have it done the very next day after your arrival. Then you can spend 4-5 days enjoying the tourist attractions, sightseeing and traveling across Egypt. Then at the end of the week; visit us to remove any stitches..etc. , before you fly back home .
