The overall results are far better than I dreamed

5 50 Plastic Surgeon Consultation

I always was hesitant to have aesthetic interventions, I am really stressed to go to hospitals, and I chose to come to this clinic for the warm welcoming and quality.

I had several plastic surgeries intervention here, in the last 2 years and my experience is to a high standard. For me as a non-Dutch speaker, the communication was great, I felt very well taken care and understood. I met here a team always helpful, so welcoming and I could feel them committed to providing the best possible care for me.

The doctors, as well as the clinic director, were always giving best advises, taking a lot of time to explain everything to me, and answer all sort of question, even when I was not decided whether should I go on with the interventions. I never had the feeling that they wanted to sell me something. On the contrary, they were very honest and clearly told me what works and whatnot.

The overall results are far better than I dreamed. I am very satisfied.
High-quality services, the doctors are very skilful, they are very professional and I could fell I was coming first as a client. So highly recommend this clinic.

The scar is barely visible and the shape is exactly what I had in mind

5 50 Dermal Fillers

When you enter the clinic you really feel the warmth. I was received very kindly, and the employees came to have a nice chat before I was taken for my conversation with the doctor. Attention to the customer is clearly central in this clinic. I received all the information and took the brochures home so I could read it quietly. Once at home I called if I could come again with my partner to go through everything again. Despite the fact that I came for the second time for the same, it was again taken seriously and they really had taken all the time and it was explained to me and my partner very well. After my second conversation, I received a call asking if everything was clear to me and if I had any questions. I experienced this as very nice because it was a big step for me. Now I have been treated with breast enlargement and I am very happy with the result. The scar is barely visible and the shape is exactly what I had in mind. All in all, I can say that choosing to have my surgery at essential has been the best decision.

I'm now very happy with the result

5 50 Facelift

I had a facelift done a few years ago. I was kinda happy at the time. Mainly because there was not as much information online as it has now. Now that the internet has developed more and more I got the chance to see a lot of reviews of other people. That is when I noticed that I wanted again a facelift because I hadn’t achieved the result I wanted. After searching for reviews I saw that essential esthetic had a lot of good reviews. After being informed I planned again my second facelift. The doctor advised me a macs lift. I'm now very happy with the result. It feels like I look 10 years younger and I get a lot of compliments. My sister will do the same procedure with dr Luca as I did. And I know for sure that she is in the best hands with the clinic and doctor Luca

The result is above expectations

5 50 Fat Transfer

A few years ago I joined essential aesthetics because of my buttocks. I was then advised to take implants. At first, I thought this was a scary idea. Filling with my own fat was unfortunately not an option for me as I do not have enough fat to use. I took my time to think about that first. I then went to various clinics to gather more information. I felt most comfortable with essential. Sufficient time was taken and I was reassured. During the conversation, I also noticed that the doctor was very competent and knew a lot about the treatment. Obviously this should be a requirement but in this case, it really was his speciality. And that came up very well in the conversation. That is why I went back to Essential Aesthetics to start the consultation again because this time I was well prepared and had all the information. I was finally ready! And I can proudly say that I should have done this much earlier. C. Even after surgery, care is still excellent. I receive regular calls to ask how I am doing and if they can help me. This is very much appreciated on my part! I would recommend the clinic Essential aesthetics and dr. levan to everyone.

It's about 6.5 months post-op and I’m very happy with the results

4.5 50 Breast Lift, Breast Implant Revision • Paid: € 6500

I had a re-augmentation and a breast lift done. I was a very complicated case. Normally the surgery would take up to 3 hours. Mine was 5 hours of surgery.

Dr. Luca Piombino did such a good job that the scars are almost invisible now. I can walk around without wearing a bra which I couldn’t do for years. Also, I never had the right size. Now I can where everything I’m comfortable with.

I’m an American and it was very scary for me to have an operation done in Europe. Therefore I was very hesitant in the beginning. But I really was amazed by how clean you were with things and you guys were awesome and kept me calm when I was in tears.

The staff was wonderful and very nice and accommodating.
I was informed well, and everything was explained very well. I left the consultation confident that Dr. Piombino was the one who should do my surgery. I had several consultations and he was by far the best. It's about 6.5 months post-op and I’m very happy with the results. They look even better than the first few weeks after my surgery.

My experience with Essential Aesthetics was amazing.

I was so impressed with the surgery and that I didn’t have any complications

5 50

I was well pleased from the beginning until the end and after the procedure. The doctor explained everything about the surgery I wanted. I had several consultations prior the surgery. With Dr. Piombino and also with Dr. Jansen. So that I had all the information I needed. I wanted to get my jawline symmetric so he gave me 3 options for the procedure. 1 option to fix my jawline with filler. The second option was prosthetic or the 3d option was to file down the bone to make it even with the other side. I was pleased to see that all the options where mentioned. I was so impressed with the surgery and that I didn’t have any complications. In the beginning I felt a bit of numbness. But after a few weeks the numbness wat completely gone. The thing I also liked was the fact that even after the surgery I received phone calls every 2 or three weeks to see how I was doing. I will definitely recommend the clinic to other people!

I am now 8 months post-op and I couldn’t be any happier

5 50 Tummy Tuck

I have been struggling for many years now because of the extra skin due to weight loss. It took me 3 years to finally reach out to clinics to remove the skin. I had lost 50 kilo’s in total over the years. When I finally had the courage, I started studying about several treatments. I came to the conclusion that I would need a tummy tuck to remove the skin. I went to different clinics to see which clinic would be the best for my body type. In total, I went to 5 different clinics. 4 of them told me that I needed a fleur de lis. Which is a big scar from my lower abdomen with a big vertical line until my breast? It might sound selfish but I didn’t work this hard to end up with a big scar all over my abdomen. The 5th clinic was Essential Aesthetics. There I met Dr. Piombino. He showed me several cases similar to mine. He told me that he almost never does fleur de lis. The cases where he did the fleur de lis where with people who already had a scar in the same place. And that it’s absolutely unnecessary to scar my body up to my breast. At first, I was hesitant because 4 out of 5 doctors told me I needed a fleur de lis. When I told him about my concern he showed me several cases he had done. The before and afters were amazing. He took the time to answer all my questions and understood my fear and had the ability to make everything sound very logic. After the consultation, I was very confident that I wanted to do the surgery with Dr. Piombino. The day of the surgery was unreal. I was nervous and excited at the same time. Dr. Piombino and Dr. Jansen came to see me and we had a nice casual conversation which really calmed me down. After I woke up the staff told me that the surgery went really well and that I had to rest. They gave me something to eat and I slept for one hour. When I woke up my partner was in my room talking with dr. Piombino. The doctor told me that the surgery took one hour longer than expected because he wanted the most perfect result for me and that he was very pleased with the outcome. I cried after hearing those words because I felt so much relief afterwards. I knew that I had made the right decision even though I hadn’t seen the final result yet. I am now 8 months post-op and I couldn’t be any happier. It feels like I finally have my life back and the results are AMAZING. Dr. Piombino, Dr. Jansen and all care team members of Essential Aesthetics thank you. Thank you for everything you had done for me and still doing for me. The fact that you all are still in contact with me even after the operation shows me that your clinic really does care about their patients. I can truly say that doing this operation with essential aesthetics is the best decision I ever made and I would recommend it to everyone!

I fell so feminine and confident now

5 50 Dental Implants

I have doubted for a few years about going under breast augmentation procedures.

Since the wish of improving my breast was still with me for so many years, in the end, I decided to visit a few clinics and get an idea of what it is possible or not. During my consultation with doctor Luca Piombino, everything was explained clearly and in details, the time that was taken for me was really unexpected. Most importantly was that I felt listed to my wishes as I didn't want visible T scar which was suggested by the other clinics I visited. But doctor Piombino listened to my wishes and proposed to perform a technique that allows a slight lift without the T scar, in combination with 320cc Mentor implants which will help to offer a natural volume of my breasts. I knew then, that he will be the right doctor for me. Everything went great and almost 9 months after my surgery, the result is so beautiful and also very very natural. I fell so feminine and confident now. So happy. I highly recommend Essential clinic if you are looking for personal treatment and top quality. Thank you doctor Luca Piombino and Essential Aesthetics clinic!

Thank you for sharing with us your experience. Our biggest satisfaction is to see we could have been contributing into your well being. Be loved, Essential Team

Butt Implants / Gluteal / Buttock augmentation

We specialize, at Essential Aesthetics, among other things, in buttock augmentation.

The demand for buttock augmentation is also growing in the Netherlands.

Would you like rounder or fuller buttocks? This is now also possible in the Netherlands, in all safety and with long lasting results. Maybe you were not gifted with big buttocks at birth or you feel you are losing buttock volume with age. Essential Aesthetics has commissioned a team of experienced specialists to work with international physicians in developing new, safe and better treatment methods for creating perfect big buttocks.

Essential Aesthetics is constantly looking for the best and most innovative techniques. This starts with the person performing the procedure; the doctor. We are therefore proud of our collaboration with the renowned French surgeon and experienced expert, Prof. Dr. Phillipe Levan, who has been the expert in buttock augmentation for more than 20 years.

Essential Aesthetics raises the level of our buttock augmentation with implants treatment to a higher academic level. Our patients get the best method with the safest implants and the best end result with the least risk.

The result? You will get the effect you desire with a treatment that suits you. In our clinic, we can enlarge your buttocks with your own body fat, eliminate smaller bumps with fillers or create beautifully full buttocks using invisible and imperceptible implants that last a lifetime.

At Essential Aesthetics, we specialise in liposuction, and fat aspiration. In addition to liposuction, there is now a new procedure called LipoSculpting, an even more sophisticated liposuction technique. If you are considering liposuction, read on!

Sometimes you can't always achieve the desired effect with training. And if you can, you may not have the time or feel like it. Liposuction can then be an option. Please note, liposuction is not a means of losing weight, but it can help you get rid of local excess fat, such as abdominal fat.

Many women suffer from stacking fat around the hips, thighs, abdomen and upper arms. Especially after a pregnancy, the body can change a lot under the influence of hormones. Men more often suffer from stacking fat around the abdomen, stomach and neck area. But also on the knees, in the face, around the ankles, back and buttocks, stacking fat can be difficult to train away. Liposuction can then be the ideal solution. Sometimes fat also has to be cut away to achieve the best result (dermolipectomy), as it is often done when treating cellulite.
