Useful information for our patients - Chemical peel


  • Prior to the chemical peel, the patient goes through a routine preoperative analysis, which comprises the medical examination in our clinic and a blood test analysis.
  • We have a special arrangement with our foreign patients. Prior to the operation and preoperative examination, we hold consultation through emails, photos and by phone. This way, our surgeons get a deeper insight into the individual case, according to which they can estimate whether the patient is a suitable candidate for the desired operation. This procedure allows our patient to come to Zagreb for the operation one time only. When our patient arrives, we hold final preoperative consultation and medical examination (including blood test), where we discuss the details of the operation together with the patient. After the consultation, we perform the surgery.


  • This operation is done under local anaesthesia and the whole procedure is painless.
  • The patient stays in the clinic for several hours. It takes about an hour for preoperative preparations, and one hour for the operation itself after which the patient rests. Once discharged from the surgery the patient is sent to home care.


  • Great success of the operations in Dr Toncic’s clinic is largely due not only to the experience of our surgical team, precise and enhanced techniques, but also to well organized professional postoperative care.
  • For our patients’ safety, successful recovery and postoperative monitoring, we recommend optimal length of stay in Zagreb. This way, we leave nothing to chance. We monitor our patient’s recovery completely, which is crucial for our patient’s health and the result of the operation.
  • Postoperative recovery after chemical peel is individual, usually lasting around 14 days after the procedure. After that, the patients can resume their personal and professional everyday activities.
  • After chemical peel, we strictly advise our patients to avoid exposure to the sun of the treated area for three months after the procedure, because of the possible damaging effects. Therefore, chemical peel is a procedure that we perform only during fall and winter, when the damaging sun effect is minimised.


  • Required stay in Zagreb is at least 5 days, so we can monitor the early postoperative period completely. We indeed require that our patients stay in Zagreb after the chemical peel procedure for the optimal time, as this period is of crucial importance for our patient’s health and for the result of the procedure. Having followed all the instructions, our patient can safely go home without risking the possible postoperative complications.
  • Sick leave lasts 14 days for chemical peel. 14 days after home care and recovery, the patients can resume their personal and professional activities.


  • Beside the procedure, we can arrange travel and accommodation for our foreign patients. We are here to assist you in every step of the way. Therefore, we can book your flight, and private or hotel accommodation in Zagreb. Our driver will welcome you at Zagreb airport and take you to your accommodation.
