Breast Augmentation…for natural looking breasts that place the body in perfect harmony
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular and satisfying cosmetic procedures available. Women choose to have breast augmentation surgery for different reasons.

G. Sarafianos: Private Hospitals and EOPYY
of the President of Panhellenic Union of Private Hospitals and member of Board of Directors of the European Union of Private Hospitals UEHP, Gregory Sarafianos We are going through the 6th year in Memorandum conditions, the 5th year of E.O.P.Y.Y.’s operation and the 4th year of thieving measures’ application of Rebate and Claw Back, acting in a hostile economic environment for businesses, in conditions of unprecedented full economic suffocation, in terms of provision of our services constantly changing and indeed unilaterally, but additionally with retroactive effect. We offer our services under difficult conditions but also with a sense of responsibility towards our patients, insured individuals of E.O.P.Y.Y., regardless of the continued long unconventional behavior of the Organization. We operate under an economic adjustment program that expired at the end of 2014 and it extends unilaterally for one and a half year now, without being respected and constantly under violation. These days, the energetic new E.O.P.Y.Y. Administration has begun the negotiation of the new agreement hoping to be completed with positive result. But in order to sign the new agreement, both private hospitals and other providers, the new agreement should be isobaric rather than unbalanced, to reflect reality, to consider […]

“After 60 an annual checkup is necessary if you want to live many more healthy years with your partner …”
Roy and Abbot are two Americans who met and had a family in the 1970s in Oklahoma. When the children grew up and left and Roy retired, they began traveling and fullfilling the dream of a lifetime. To spend all their time together whilst seeing the world and growing old. When they came to Greece several years ago they were impressed by a large private hospital they had to visit on an emergency after a foot injury … Since then they decided to visit the country again to combine travel and medical tourism. “So, spending the last Christmas in Greece, we spent 24 hours in the impressive private hospital in single rooms where we underwent all necessary examinations,” Abbot said, and “In fact we found out that Roy should monitor his prostate and this helped us to anticipate more problems in the future. Medical examinations in Greece will cost much less and we felt great combining our holiday with a health check – up”, she added.

The position in the company requires her to look good at all times and to smile while serving important customers from around the world … But her teeth were always a problem as they were a little crooked and their natural colour rather yellowish. “My efforts for a satisfactory bleaching were not as successful as I would like them. I continued to smile without showing my teeth and generally I realised that I began to have a problem with this. As I was trying to organize my holiday to Greece last summer, I came across an informative article on medical tourism. And I thought, why not? “… In Athens Tania visited a specialist dental centre where she fixed six porcelain veneers on her upper teeth and six on her lower – the teeeth that show mainly when we smile wide. The porcelain veneers not only have the white color she always wanted, but they also covered the small gaps she had between her teeth further improving her smile. “And all this at half the price they wanted in London. So with the money […]

Despite this I had it done twice. The first time was seven years ago and once more two years after that. Even thouh I was young and my hormone levels were normal, I couldn’t get pregnant naturally. Essentially there was no apparent medical reason … When we came with my husband to Greece two years ago, we just wanted to go on vacation, visit my relatives and relax.

With a normal cycle, without too much medication and in a completely relaxed mood my husband and I gave it a try. And we succeeded! Just like that!
