Having researched various clinics throughout Antalya I got the search down to 3 surgeons, I decided to go with Dr Duygu due to her good reviews and a more personalised service and the only surgeon not pushing me into having more implants!
I spoke with Furkan who works alongside Dr Duygu I explained what I wanted (implants removed and an uplift due to an aching pain in my breast ) he instantly put me at ease and answered all of my questions.
I went to Antalya with my husband Furkan speaks fantastic English and is very good at his job. He met us at the airport and explained where we were staying he checked us into the hotel and even showed us to our room.
The next day Furkan picked us up and answered all my questions honestly and clearly. Along with my husband in tow we went to the hospital and had numerous blood tests, an ECG and a covid test, Furkan took over with the paperwork and communication. He was amazing and made us feel reassured and relaxed, we soon grew to trust him.
The same day we met Dr Duygu she is warm, friendly and beautiful, she puts you at ease straight away she gave me a consultation and said we would be having surgery the next day. On the surgery day Furkan picked me up (my husband stayed at the hotel) at 07.00 and stayed with me answering more of my questions.
Dr Duygu came in and drew on my breasts and explained what she was going to do and what to expect, she was professional and warm and even gave me a little hug before I went into the theatre. When I woke up Furkan was there he put the hospital wifi on my phone made sure I had a drink and was warm and comfortable he then went to the hotel to get my husband for a visit.
I stayed in the hospital 1 night and with Google translate managed to chat to the staff there. The next day Dr Duygu came to see me and informed me that one of my removed implants had ruptured she had cleaned the area, and said I had removed them at the right time, and wouldn't have put any more implants in even if i wanted them as the breast tissue had to heal.
The next day Furkan took me back to the hotel and even helped me with my trainers he helped me in and out of the car, Furkan is one of lifes beautiful people he is warm, funny and very caring and couldn't do enough for us. We stayed at the laren family hotel full board.
It was peaceful and comfortable and there is a nurse who will assist with any concerns, there was alot of people staying at the hotel who had come to Turkey for surgery so you won't feel out of place walking around with drains or bandages. I have not felt a bit of pain and only took pain relief for 1 day after the surgery.
I went back to Dr Duygus clinic for another dressing change and the drains removed (which incidentally doesnt hurt) and a look at my new breasts I was so pleased with the shape and size and only wished I had done it sooner. Dr Duygu was pleased with the surgery and my healing and said everthing was good. Dr Duygu and her team are lovely friendly people and very professional.
Dr Duygu is an amazing professional surgeon who is admired and well known in Turkey I would advise anyone who is thinking of going to Turkey for surgery to message Dr Duygu and her team, I am on my 6th day after surgery and feel almost back to normal I have enjoyed a lovely long walk along the beautiful Antalya seafront today and sadly will be leaving tonight to go home.
If I decide to have more surgery in the future I will only use Dr Duygu.
Thank you so much Furkan and Dr Duygu for making my surgery a stressfree, painless experience which funny enough I enjoyed, you are both amazing people and I will see you later in the year for Lipo probably with my 2 sisters who also want their implants removed.
