In the Czech Republic there are 4 steps of training:
The training lasts at least 5 years and must be provided at accredited sites, where the trainee is going through all parts of plastic surgery. To become a fully board certified plastic surgeon, one must pass the qualifying examination, which is oral and practical. To application form for the examination the candidate must attach references of main tutors and a list of performed surgeries. There are types and number of compulsory operations.

You may want to arrange the cosmetic surgery trip to Czech on your own. It is simple. You can simply purchase an airplane ticket, accommodation and airport pick up on the internet within 30 minutes. Before that you should get a date for consultation or possible operation from a chosen plastic surgery specialist. Some time a clinic where you wish to undergo the treatment may recommend an accomodation or apartment near the facility as well as an airport pick up.
You might decide, you don’t want to travel alone. Well, bring a husband and send him play golf. There are more then 70 golf courses in Czech. Bring a friend and send her shopping, siteseeing, you name it…
Czech is far from a third world country. You don’t have to be afraid to get a taxi from the airport. Also, you may contact us if you wish to recommend an appartment of accommodation. The bottom line is:find a surgeon and give him a call or write an email and go from that.

Some of the providers have undergone a treatment them selves. You may feel better not going alone. Agents usually know their way around the Prague and Czech.
