We do not warranty or claim that any information presented on our website is correct or accurate. All such information cannot be relied upon in making any medical diagnosis or decisions. Neither Cosmetic Bliss nor its employees directly or indirectly practice medicine, or give medical advice. Information presented on our website, in our brochures, booklets, leaflets and sales documents is compiled from a variety of sources and should not be used for medical advice or in place of a professional consultation with a doctor. We act as an intermediary providing access to surgery in our partner hospitals and clinics.

Descriptions, pictures, and examples of treatments shown on our website (and on links to other websites) are merely representations of treatments that can be arranged. Whilst Cosmetic Bliss believes such information to be accurate, it shall not accept liability for inaccuracy of such information.

Our Responsibilities

Cosmetic Bliss will undertake to provide you with arrangement services relating to surgical procedures outside the U.K. Before your booking is confirmed and a contract comes into existence we reserve the right to increase or decrease prices. The booking is not accepted until the date shown on the invoice, which will be sent once the deposit has been received. It is only then that a contract exists between us. 

All hospitals and clinics are inspected by us, and their surgeons and physicians carefully vetted. We cannot, however, warranty or guarantee the levels of service provided by hospitals, clinic, doctors or surgeons. We hold no medical qualifications. We do not carry any responsibility for the work of the surgeon, clinic and its staff. Your contract for medical and surgical treatment is with your clinic and surgeons, and all the medical and surgical work undertaken is the responsibility of the clinic and surgeons. We do not accept any liability of whatever nature for the acts, omissions, or default, whether negligent or otherwise, of clinics and other suppliers in respect of the provision of goods and services to you directly or indirectly in connection with any package organised by us on your behalf. Your clinic/surgeon may give you pre-operative and aftercare instructions and advice. Should you fail to follow such advice and instructions and there is loss injury or damage resulting, we cannot be held liable. We do not accept any financial liability in the unlikely event that the surgeon feels that you are not fit enough to undergo surgery.

We make every effort to offer the highest levels of service. Our reputation for high standards is paramount and therefore at all times we try to source the highest quality healthcare. If you believe that our service is failing in any way, please contact us immediately so that we can try to rectify it as soon as possible!

Medical Questionnaires and Confidentiality

By returning to us a completed medical questionnaire and photographs you agree to allow Cosmetic Bliss and the clinic use these items for the purposes limited to medical use only. We ensure that any information given to us is treated in a highly confidential manner and will only be sent to your clinic. Your medical questionnaire will be returned to you, if so requested, once you have completed your procedure. We will not disclose any information regarding you without your written permission. We facilitate the transfer of information and medical records between you, your doctor or specialist, and the clinic’s surgeon or physician. Any medical information that is stored temporarily by us about you is held in a secure environment and is not listed or associated elsewhere by us nor is it held by us after your surgical procedure is successfully completed, thus retaining confidentiality. These policies exclude any disclosure which we are required to make by law. Cosmetic Bliss cannot be held legally liable for any medical or financial consequences if you fail to complete the questionnaire thoroughly and honestly or do not disclose to the medical staff at your clinic your full medical history.

If you are under the age of 18 at the time of your proposed procedure we will require written parental consent to the procedure prior to confirmation of booking.

If you make a booking within 28 days of your departure date, then you must pay the full cost of the treatment package at the booking stage.
