"I had a Rhinoplasty to fix some deviations in my nose, to correct an overly projected jump and deproject the tip of my nose. Initially I started looking for surgeons in Greece (my hometown) however, I found that the ENT surgeons there where not performing many rhinoplasties. I started to look in Turkey, because from my understanding it is a very serious country with it's regulations, and the doctors are well practiced and educated. I came across Dr. Murat, and his websites were fully documented with his work, how he practices, advice and the details of his operations. I found it very important that his website is more of a 'lifestyle blog', rather than a generic plastic surgery website, as I truly felt that this man adores what he does. His results on his blog are well-balanced, natural and beautiful. But there are more if you search well. My father, who used to also be a surgeon, researched with me, and he was very impressed with Dr. Murat - he insisted I visit him and no one else. I asked him 'why are you so sure?', he told me 'when a doctor loves what he does, this is the only thing you should be looking for'. I am very happy with myself now for listening to my Father, my instincts and for my careful research.
I am now 4 days post-op, and I have never been more happy. Dr. Murat is not your common surgeon. He has true talent, craftsmanship, and most importantly, a passion for his work. He takes it very seriously. I can already see that my hump has been corrected, the tip fixed, and it is not deviated like before. Of course the swelling hides your true results, but a rhinoplasty takes true patience.
I was very surprised that Dr. Murat did an ear and throat check for me in my consultation, as it was not necessary, but he diagnosed me with an ear issue that I did not know I had. He also showed me through his scanning machine that a deviation was causing a blockage in my nostril, much reducing my breathing capabilities. This makes me believe that he truly cares about our wellbeing. I felt that he was very candid, reliable and knowledgeable.
Often, he messages me to check up on my progress. After my surgery, he was there to reassure me that it went fine. He went to the pharmacy to order me all the medicine essentials. The next day he travelled to the private hospital to explain how they are all used. He did more than he had to, and I am very grateful, but also proud of myself for choosing the right surgeon for such an important operation. I would also like to note that Dr. Murat is a very busy professional, yet somehow, he always finds the time to help you, make sure you're okay, and to ensure that you have everything you need. I have been very impressed.
From my perspective, Dr. Murat does not commercialize himself like other surgeons, particularly plastic surgeons. He does not promise perfect results - he is very honest with himself and the patient, and therefore very realistic about the results that can be achieved. These are two characteristics that are very important ones to look for in a surgeon. Secondly, he is an Otorhinolaryngologist which is wonderful. He has a very detailed understanding of the nasal anatomy, breathing, and the interlink between the ears, nose and throat. Hence, during operations he focuses on aesthetic functions along with dynamic functions, and he is very careful to achieve a result that looks pleasing, but also provides you with a better quality of life.
Dr. Murat is a very positive person and he has great humor. I couldn't stop laughing through my consultation - any nervousness I had was gone. If I could describe him with a few words, they would be: HONEST, TRUSTWORTHY, TALENTED and EMPATHETIC.
Please feel free to contact me personally if you are considering Dr. Murat - which would be a very wise decision. My email is email@example.com.
Thank you Dr. Murat, you have no idea how much you helped me."
