Gastric Sleeve at Prague Beauty Hi, I thought I'd share a a bit about my experience with Weightloss surgery and Prague Beauty.
I'm a 29 year old female from England.
For most of my life, in despite of constant healthy eating plans and gym routines, I have been very overweight and miserable!
So, I finally decided to pay to have the gastric sleeve resection, (or vertical sleeve gastrectomy as some might know it).
It honestly took me the best part of a year to decide on which WLS proceedure to have, and then trying to figure out which was the best/safest/affordable clinic was so overwhelming!
I stumbled upon Prague Beauty whilst researching clinics abroad.
And even though the reviews seemed fantastic, I was still sceptical, it seemed so professional and such a cheap price, almost too good to be true.
But then I found a few (honest and outspoken) forums which were discussing Prague Beauty's original and sister clinic.
It provided IVF for women who sadly couldn't conceive naturally and there were a good few conversations about their treatment.
That made up my mind and I contacted their Coordinator Tom Adamov.
He replied quickly and was very friendly and factual.
So I booked my slot and waited.
Tom took care of everything. All I had to do was print out tickets and turn up.
2/2/17 arrived and I excitedly boarded my flight.
I opted to pay a little extra to take my mum along for support.
Tom met us at the airport with a placard and a smile. And from there it was all kind of a blur/surreal.
We stayed in a beautiful hotel in Prague, spending the day exploring the city.
The following morning, Tom picked us up and drove us to a clinic for pre-op tests and the on to the hospital.
Whilst I prepared for my surgery, Tom and my mum went food shopping and to the apartment to settle in.
The hospital staff were all very kind and though their English was limited and my Czech non-existant, I was well looked after.
I'm not going to lie, it wasn't pleasant having the procedure done, but I had prepared myself for that and I was hooked up to IV's with all the fluids and painkillers I needed.
Dr Vrany, the head surgeon and his colleague Dr Dita (I can't remember her Sir name), we're both absolutly lovely, informative and reassuring, and they popped in on me often during my stay.
All of the nurses were kind, but two in particular were very sweet and attentive, Bianka and Katerina.
After a few days recovering, Tom picked me up and returned me to my mum at the apartment.
We could of explored the town but I was feeling too weak. Plus I'd only packed comfy (but not very warm clothes) and was cold and snowy outside.
Two days later, feeling much stronger, Tom collected us once again, drove us to the airport and stayed with us, carrying our suitcases, all the way to check in.
Throughout the whole experience he was fantastic.
I literally could not have found a better guy to guide me through that terrifying journey which is weight loss surgery.
I've been home a couple of days now and feel great, my wounds are healing nicely and I have no pain.
If you are considering having that or anything else done I would say take your time researching it, be realistic with the recovery and expectations, but definitely have it done with Prague Beauty, they really are as fantastic as they seem.
