Most of us want our body to look better. The first way, how to make our body look better, that comes to our mind is fat removal. Liposuction has been around from the early 70’s and one of the biggest problem with it was the fact that the skin after liposuction did not tighten which has made the body to look skinnier but not like the body we all wish to have. This is why researchers have developed BodyTite.
BodyTite is a revolution in liposuction as it not only removes fat but it also tightens the skin and thus ensures that the body you have always dreamed for might be one operation away.
The best thing about BodyTite is the fact that it uses radio frequency energy and thus reduces the bruising and the recovery time as well as the patient can be under an oral sedation depending on the amount of fat to be removed. Results can be seen immediately as there is almost no swelling involve again depending on the area to be treated. It has up to 50% of skin tightening. This is mainly beneficial for men and women that are of age 40 and above where the skin does not tighten after the classical liposuction. This is also beneficial to people who have larger deposits of fat where after classical liposuction the skin of the patient will not be tightened
As well as that it is also able to get rid of cellulite which can’t be removed with classical liposuction. The body sculpting itself is more even than with classical liposuction. BodyTite skin tightening cannot be done with any other method than BodyTite. With classical liposuction, the patient needs to go for body tightening procedures after the recovery time and the skin tightening results are less visible as it is usually done on the top of the skin as Bodytite tightens the skin from the top and below the skin to ensure the best skin tightening.
BodyTite is made up of an electrode with a thermostat on the top of the skin and an electrode with a cannula attached to it which is emitting a radio frequency that destroys the fat cells as well as heats up the tissue. As the electrode with the cannula is rather of the size of a knitting needle, the incision is rather small and thus the healing time is faster and the procedure itself is less invasive and thus it fastens the recovery time.
How does BodyTite work:
The area to be treated is filled with tumescent fluid which is a special type of liquid which reduces bruising. After filling the area with a tumescent fluid, an electrode with an attached suction cannula is put underneath the skin and the electrode with a thermostat is put on top of the skin.
Between the inside and outside electrode a radio frequency energy is formed which will generate heat and at the same time sucks out the fat. The thermostat with the electrode that is at the top of the skin measures the temperature to make the procedure to be safe for the patient as well as it keeps the heat high enough for the best skin tightening.
Doctors say that the most exciting part about BodyTite is not only the advantages stated above but also the technology itself which gives doctors feedback on what is happening again to ensure the best result possible. Doctors also like the fact that BodyTite is just a combination of two techniques that have been used for a long time and again making it safer for the patient.
BodyTite is also a revolution in treating pseudo gynecomastia and gynecomastia ( excessive fat deposits in one or both male breasts) as it removes fat from males breast as well as it tightens the skin. This is why it is one of the most favorite type of liposuction used to treat this problem.
One session can be done under oral/local/general anesthesia depending on the size and the type of area to be treated. The treatment takes 1-3 hours depending on the size and type of the area to be treated. Bodytite has 92% worth it rate on realself.com
The Czech Republic is becoming more and more accessible without a visa. This is mainly due to Czech foreign policies, where the Czech Republic is trying to make International agreements with countries in order to have visa free travel. Each year at least 5 countries are added to the list of countries with Visa free travel. One of the first countries to have visa free agreement with the Czech Republic was Canada. Czechia even as a relatively small country has one of the most embassies and consulate around the world and has many unique places where these embassies and consulates are. For example in North Korea and in Vatican.
You don’t need visa for stays shorter than 90 days, if you are a holder of the passport of the following countries : EU and EEA countries, Albania only with biometric passport, Andorra, Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Australia, Bahamas, Barbados, Bosnia and Herzegovina only with biometric passport, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominica, East Timor, Georgia, Grenada, Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Japan, Kiribati, Macedonia only with biometric passport, Malaysia, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Mexico, Micronesia, Moldova only with biometric passport, Monaco, Montenegro only with biometric passport, Nauru, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Palau, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Salvador, Samoa, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and Grenadines, San Marino, Serbia only with biometric passport, Seychelles, Singapore, Solomon Islands, South Korea, Taiwan only with identity card passport, Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, Tuvalu, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United States of America, Uruguay, Vanuatu, Vatican, Venezuela.
For other countries the condition may differ, as travelers of some countries can stay as long as 180 days some may stay only for 30 days and some may get Visa upon arrival and the others do need Visa which can be acquired at a Czech embassy or a general consulate.
IVF with embryo donation is a big Problem in the UK as there is not a plentiful supply of such embryos. This is due to many reasons, one of them being that there is no compensation to the donor and thus people are not motivated enough to do so. As well as that there is a lower chance of receiving such embryos from an IVF with egg donation procedure as in the UK a low amount of egg is used for this procedure and thus there is a lower chance of forming an embryo. This is why NHS IVF with embryo donation waiting time is so long. The price tends to be around 7500£ which is around 8600€. However, the patient faces the struggle that there is a low number of donors and thus is waiting listed as well as this being rather not a very common type of procedure and thus the doctors do not have a lot of experience with such technique. As well as the patient will not get any refund nor any compensation if the first attempt to get pregnant fails. This is why many UK pairs which try to conceive face the question to have IVF in the UK or abroad
US has the same problem as the UK as there is a lack of embryo donors and the patient also has to be waitlisted which also results in lack of experience as well as the clinics that perform embryo donation are not presented in every single state of USA and thus you may be forced to travel to another state and the already high cost will increase. The average price of such procedure is around 12 000$ which is around 10600€. The costs of US clinics are usually broken-down in order to mislead the patient to think that the price for the treatment is low. And like in the UK there is usually no refund nor any compensation if a person does not get pregnant for the first attempt.
Ireland also faces a problem with embryo donation. However, it is not as bad as in the UK and US. The average price is around 7000€. There is usually no refund nor any compensation if a person does not get pregnant for the first attempt. This may result in the patient being waitlisted again and wasting of patients time.
In the Czech Republic(Czechia) through Praga Medica which works with Prague’s IVF clinic with outstanding reviews, the cost of IVF with embryo donation is around 3000€ which includes all the necessary tests of the recipient and of the embryo as well as a second embryo that is free of charge should the patient not get pregnant with the first attempt, transfer to the clinic for the 1st appointment and a local representative to help during your whole stay to make things stress free.
Therefore even if we add to this price other costs like a Hotel stay, airplane ticket, and other costs, the price will still be lower than in the countries mentioned above not even mentioning that there is no waiting time unlike some countries mentioned above. This is why Czech Republic is well known for its cheap IVF with high success rate and outstanding quality of service. So The answer to, how to improve IVF success rate might be to go abroad. In some countries, it is illegal to undergo IVF if you are over 40. Therefore you will have to undergo IVF with embryo donor abroad if you are over 40 years old. In the Czech Republic, the limit for IVF is 48 years old.
Why aren’t patients in the Czech Republic Waitlisted?
This is because Czech Republic’s IVF is well-known for a good quality IVF all around the world and also has a high success rate and thus many embryos are left over from patients. Thus many embryos are available for donation.
What is the difference between egg donation and embryo donation IVF?
Egg donation means that the egg was donated by women to a pair that is trying to have a child and usually the sperm used to fertilize this egg comes from the father. Embryo donation means that it is an egg and sperm from a different pair of individuals that will be inserted into woman’s uterus.
Why is embryo donation sometimes referred to as embryo adoption?
This is due to the fact that some people believe that an embryo is already a child. Children’s are not being donated but are being adopted, hence the name embryo adoption.
Why is embryo donation cheaper than egg donation?
This is because an embryo is donated for free and is sort of a left over from egg or standard IVF treatments. The egg is donated for money as well as the person that donates the egg has to take special medication and thus the cost increases.
What is IVF?
IVF is a type of assisted reproductive technology used for infertility treatment. IVF stands for In vitro fertilization. This is a fertilization of an egg by sperm outside of the body. The fertilized egg (zygote) undergoes embryo culture for 2–6 days, and is then transferred to woman’s uterus. The embryo donation part means giving of embryos remaining after one couple’s in vitro fertilization to another person. This is without a compensation to the donor. Embryo donation is sometimes referred to as sometimes called embryo adoption.

Have you tried home remedies to enhance your fertility, hypnosis for fertility or Chinese fertility drugs and they have all failed? IVF with egg donation might be the answer. However, the price for IVF with egg donation has drastically increased. This is why many of these couples have been forced to have this procedure done outside of their country of residence. In past three years, it has not only been the price that has forced couples to undergo this procedure abroad but also due to the success rate being higher abroad.
In the UK the average price for IVF in 2017 with egg donation is around 9000£ which is around 10 250€. The price includes all necessary costs. However, usually, a person is not guaranteed an embryo. Thus if a person pays for such procedure and the eggs do not get fertilized, then the person has lost most or all of the money paid for the procedure depending on the refund condition of the clinic. If a patient wants a guarantee that it will receive at least one embryo, then the price can go up to 18 000€. It is also important to note down the fact that due to the legislation in the UK patient is not able to choose as much from the donors as they have to stay anonymous. The average success rate is around 40% according to human’s fertilization and embryology authorities. This is why many UK pairs which try to conceive face the question to have IVF in the UK or abroad
If we cross the pond to the US we get an average price of 24 000$ to 26 000$ depending on the state that the clinic is in. This is roughly from 21 000€ to 23 000€. But that’s not all, the price does not include medication for the egg donor which ranges from state to state. However, US has a higher success rate which is around 60%. US has the same legislation about egg donors as the UK which doesn’t allow for a choice by the patient as the donors have to stay completely anonymous ( this means that most of the informations about them have to stay anonymous).
However, UK’s neighbor Ireland does not have this law and thus people can choose the egg donor. Ireland has a success rate of 50%. The average price in Ireland is 9000€ with an anonymous egg donor and 15 000€ if we want to know more about the donor. Thus if a patient wants to benefit from the fact that Ireland doesn’t have a law which would make it illegal to choose the egg donor, the patient will have to pay 15 000€ in average.
In Nethersland IVF with egg donation is a new thing as the first baby born thanks to this technique was on the 25th of August 2015. Thus the Dutch clinics lack experience and the success rate is somewhat uneven with some clinics rather not publishing their success rates and some stating it is around 47% which is lower than in Ireland and in the US but still higher than In the UK. The average price in Holland is around 10 000€ and the patient is again not Guaranteed to receive an embryo, thus if fertilization doesn’t take place successfully the patient will lose some of their money.
In the Czech Republic (Czechia) through Praga Medica, which works with the best clinic in the Czech Republic, the cost of IVF treatment with egg donation is around 4250€. This so called “ IVF abroad package” includes all necessary examination of the recipient and the donor even including genetic testing,1st transfer to the clinic And unlike in the countries above a guarantee of at least 2 embryos as well as a discount of 10% on another fresh cycle if the patient does not get pregnant. Czech Republic has similar legislation about IVF with egg donation as Ireland and thus the patient can choose the donor. The privilege to choose and having the benefit of having the 3rd cycle for free or 10% on another attempt will cost you only additional 1000€. Thus making the final price if you wish to choose the donor 5250€. This is almost one-third of the price of a similar package in Ireland which doesn’t include the first transfer to the clinic and a representative which will be available to the patient if any problem occurs as well as the success rate being much higher. The success rate is the same as US’s which is around 60% which is one of the highest success rates for such treatment.
Therefore even if we add to this price other costs like a Hotel stay, airplane ticket, and other costs, the price will still be lower than in the countries mentioned above not even mentioning that the success rate is higher or same as the countries mentioned above. This is why Czech Republic is well known for its cheap IVF with high success rate and outstanding quality of service. So The answer to, how to improve IVF success rate might be to go abroad for IVF. In some countries, it is illegal to undergo IVF if you are over 40. Therefore you will have to undergo IVF with donor eggs abroad if you are over 40 years old. In the Czech Republic, the limit for IVF is 48 years old.
Why is egg donation IVF cheaper in the Czech Republic?
This is because egg donors tend to get the average salary within the country for the egg donation. In the Czech Republic, the average salary is way lower than that of the countries mentioned above. This is also due to the fact that the wages for the people working in the clinic are lower than of the countries above. However, this doesn’t mean that they are worse. This is mainly due to the fact that the expenses for living in the Czech Republic are low as well as that the med schools are for free and the most prestigious schools in the Czech Republic are public schools and the administration costs in the Czech Republic are low. As well as that Czech Republic is very efficient with its IVF and is well-known for a good quality IVF all around the world. Thus enabling these clinics to buy the newest equipment necessary for IVF.
