4.9 from 29 verified reviews Just made me feel completely at ease from the get-goHumaira, Turkey, 01 07 18
I hope this review willing to help others in some way as I found it rather nerve-wracking making the right choice for what I wanted to be done. Which was a full tummy tuck, thigh lift and liposuction in multiple areas. Apologies if it is rather too long but I wanted to give a detailed account of my experience and the clinic I eventually chose.
It took me months to go through many reviews on various sites to try finding a doctor. I could feel not only comfortable with, but who would answer all of the very exacting and detailed questions I wanted to be answered. After whittling it down to 5 clinics by thoroughly researching their reviews, the doctor's experience and their particular qualifications. As well as asking how many operations they did a month for the specific procedures I wanted to be done, before and after photos of clients.
However, I eventually settled on Dr Hassan Findik at The Newest Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery Centre in Istanbul, Turkey. I honestly got the best feeling from him. He seemed honest and straightforward but very professional, friendly and polite! He was willing to answer each and every one of my exhaustive specific question. Just made me feel completely at ease from the get-go. I decided then and there to go with my gut instinct. Prayed that I had made the best choice. Time would tell. As per my experience with the doctor, his staff and the whole clinic I feel it was the right decision I had made. As soon As my husband and I landed we were met at the airport by their driver, who helped us with our baggage (A lovely chap) and took us straight to the hotel in a very comfortable car. We chose The Wyndham Grande hotel which was a great 5-star experience where most of the staff spoke very good English.
The driver picked us up again early the next morning to take us straight to the clinic to have all the relevant tests done. After which my first consultation face to face began with Dr Findik.
By the way, the whole time I was guided from start to finish by Dr Findik's medical representatives. Firstly, Saad conversed mostly over the phone in the UK with me, was responsible for discussing and arranging all the relevant accommodation. Details of procedures included in the price package and took my flight details - which incidentally, was the only thing I had to pay extra for along with the visa in order to confirm everything.
Then once we reached the clinic. Irum took over, was there throughout the consultation and the rest of our stay. As our 24-hour interpreter and the front person looking after all our relevant needs very well indeed. Even though the doctor spoke a good amount of English, I greatly appreciated having Irum there just to make sure there were no misunderstandings in communication at all.
After my thorough consultation, I was taken immediately into the operating room which I don't even remember now. The first few hours after I came out was probably the worst as expected but not too bad as I was heavily sedated. I just remember being woken up through the night as the nurses kept coming and going making sure I was well, taking my blood pressure and giving me the relevant medications to keep the pain away. The next day they actually had me walking a very short distance. Slowly with their careful guidance which I did quite well and without any real discomfort. Which altogether surprised me as I thought I would be in a lot more pain.
Each day I felt stronger and stronger. I was very well looked after in the hospital for two nights and the felt well enough to go back to the hotel by the third day.
Each time my dressings where thoroughly cleaned and changed. I found the cleanliness, hygiene of the clinic and their facilities one of the best I have ever seen. Dare I say better than most of the private hospitals in the UK and I have been to quite a few of them. The professionalism of everyone from the doctor, through the medical representatives and nurses down to the rest of the clinic staff, was amazing.
I had a number of visits by the doctor whilst in the hospital and three more before I left about seven days later. On the last day, the driver took us from the hotel to the clinic just before our flight back to London for our last checkup with Dr Findik. After giving me the all clear, said our happy goodbyes and were taken straight to the airport.
It has been just over a month now and the work Dr Findik has done on me is great. He is a real perfectionist in what he does as my scars are so fine and are healing better than I hoped for in such a short time. My swelling has gone down considerably too.
If you are seriously thinking of going for a procedure like this abroad, I would wholeheartedly unreservedly recommend this doctor and his clinic! At first, I was very confused whether to go abroad or not, especially hearing of some of the horror stories as well as this being my first time for a medical procedure out of the UK. However, if I had known about this clinic, their work and the extremely competitive pricing they offer, I would have definitely carried out my breast reduction procedure here as well. No doubt, I will definitely consider having any other procedures I may decide on in the future with Dr Hassan Findik and his lovely staff.
Thank you very much.
