There were two clinics I consulted before I decided on this one for my neck lift. I think it was worth the money. It’s been a couple of weeks now since I’ve had the treatment. I’m still wearing this bandage that supports my chin, it doesn’t really bother me, though. Because the clinic is all the way in Turkey, going for a follow-up would mean getting another flight out there. A follow-up isn’t really necessary, because I’m healing the way I expected.
The treatment and service were good, but a few things were lacking. The owners of the clinic weren’t always well-informed about the details of a particular procedure. I was also told I’d be fetched at the airport by someone holding a card with my name - it was a bit of a job to locate this person but eventually, we sorted it out. This caused me quite a bit of stress at the time. The clinic is situated in a university hospital and they were good. They were very thorough and ran several blood tests before we went ahead with the neck lift. Because of my age (I’m over 60), there were added precautions I had to take.
6 days after the operation on seeing the surgeon before returning to the UK. I received an A4 folder documentation procedure, with all the results of the blood tests and information. Which I found very reassuring, but everything was in Turkish and I couldn’t understand a word of it. I pointed this out to them and suggested it would be more presentable if it was in English. The other problem I had, was that I was responsible for changing the bandage around my head - both morning and night. I had to apply the cream and then change the dressing, and this was a difficult task all by myself. The bandage I’m wearing at the moment is something I bought off the internet and it only cost me £4.50. Hotel accommodation was first class but the odd issue here and there. Generally, everything was okay.
