Country profile

Why consider Cyprus for medical tourism?

A temperate climate and 3,000 hours of sunshine each year makes Cyprus an idyllic location for healthcare treatments abroad. Affectionately known as the Island of Aphrodite, this captivating country has an abundance of historical sites and activities to entertain and rejuvenate the visitor, as well as glorious stretches of coastline and fresh, clean air due to the lack of heavy industry.

Flying time from the UK or mainland Europe to Larnaca is four and a half hours and long-haul flights are available from anywhere in the world. Many patients take advantage of Cyprus’s mild spring and autumn weather and the cheaper air fares at this time.

Nikosia (also known as Lefkosia) is the capital of Cyprus and located at the very heart of the island. It is a modern sophisticated city and the commercial centre where many cosmetic surgery and dental clinics are located. Other major towns are Larnaca, Pafos and Limassol (also known as Lemesos), which is a seaside resort on the south coast and another popular location for private health clinics.

Board certified doctors and surgeons who offer cosmetic surgery and other private medical procedures are trained either in the UK or the US. They work in modern facilities that are designed for comfort and efficiency, using the latest technology and equipment to provide expert dentistry and cosmetic surgery. The surgeons work with quality anaesthetists and nurses and medical personnel involved in health tourism speak English as well as Greek and Turkish, including the nursing staff. Cypriots are well known for their hospitality.

Affordable private dental treatment is available in Cyprus and techniques and procedures are of the very top level. The Nicosia Dental Polyclinic (a specialist dental polyclinic, not just cosmetic dentistry) offer a ten year guarantee on implants. Laser whitening can be obtained at the Nicosia Dental Polyclinic from around €350.

Cosmetic surgery prices are also very competitive in Cyprus. Rhinoplasty (nose re-shaping), for example, costs around €2400* while Breast Augmentation costs €2900 to €4000*. (Quotes supplied by Picture Perfect Medical Co-coordinators).
