Face Lift

I had my face lift procedure with Welfare Abroad last November. In the beginning I had some concerns regarding to travel and having my procedure abroad but from the first moment that I got in touch with Welfare Abroad I received an amazing service from them and they made my experience trouble-less. Thank you Welfare Abroad!

"would definitely recommend them to others"

Treatment Received: Liposuction
I had my liposuction for my lower and upper abdomen, flanks and chest. I stayed in Istanbul for four nights and five days. Istanbul itself is nice to visit and see different cultures, trying some nice foods,shisha and get value for your money in shops. Well value for money was great for my liposuction too. Put it in this way you will save just a lot for the quality of work done by the surgeon. One thing dont forget guys risks is everywhere, doesn't matter you are in UK or not. Why paying ridiculously a high price for the same treatment received in UK? Choice is yours, you decide. And cheap price doesn't necessarily refer to poor products or services. Richard from Welfare Abroad is excellent, he answered all my questions and queries and he arranged everything just everything for me. I even had a conference call while i was in the UK with Richard and the Doctor. Driver was waiting already outside when i came out from Airport and dropped me to my pre-booked hotel. Hotel staff very pleasant and helpful and easy communication. The Surgeon Dr Selahattin Tulunay office is just the round the corner. I had a host called Ulas and he did such a great job too. He was my main point of contact and he was with me for the rest of my appointment and meeting before and after surgery. He is so kind and gentle and helpful too. He took me everywhere, booked taxi to Hospital and back to the hotel etc. On my first day, Ulas came to the hotel and we went to see the doctor. I had my same day examination with the surgeon. What a great human being he is.Dr Selahattin Tulunay, very famous, professional and gentleman. He doesn't speak that much English and that's why Ulas my host was there to translate and answer all my concerns. On the second day i had my surgery and stayed in the hospital for that night. My surgery was around 11am and before that i was following the pre-operation plan. I don't recall anything what went in the surgery because i was put to sleep and when i woke up i was in my hospital bed. The surgeon came to see me during the night and gave me my medications and got a reassuring gesture and smile on his face. The surgery went so great that i could see such a biiiiiiig change in myself on the next day. Its just Wow when i first see my sight into the mirror. I was wearing a corset already and couldn't feel the excess fat around my tummy anymore. Ulas said " you looking a lot slimmer already" lol. Nurses were very helpful but again the barrier of communication was an issue. So to make things easy i was using my translation app. And it works. Wifi can be an issue, there are wifi everywhere but not good strength and when you are used to fast broadband, you feel a bit annoyed. Well i cut off with the internet world for most of my times and just enjoyed my stay and recovery. It makes so big difference. I was sceptical carrying money on me while travelling from UK to pay for the surgery, you have other option to pay this too but there will be an extra charge of 15% which i wasn't that happy about it. Maybe they could improve or do better in that. On my fourth day, myself and Ulas went to see the surgeon for my last appointment and explain what he did and how to look after myself in the following weeks to come. Overall i am extremely happy with the service with Welfare Abroad and would definitely recommend them to others.

Ohh i miss something, its not related to Welfare abroad. The hotel where i stayed was okay, close to everything but the main problem is the traffic at night.Thousand of yellow taxi cars. Specially Friday and Saturday night. I don't why but they kept on horning and tooting all night long, "agrrr Taksi drivers are bored and thought they liked to horn and toot to entertain themselves i guess" The worst night was on the Saturday night to Sunday Morning. Well i just couldn't sleep at all. Never mind was coming back to UK on that day.

I know its quite long to read all this and im sorry but i am just making clear for some out there who need that little advice and guidance and take the challenge.
Success depends on the things you gave up to achieve it. "Mine was my fats" lol
God bless

Treatment Received: Liposuction
As a businesswoman, I am usually on a plane to different parts of Europe and most of the time my schedule is tight. When I decided to have a liposuction, I just needed to arrange my operation date quickly and reached Welfare Abroad as soon as ready about them. I warned them about my limited time in Turkey and they were able to act professionally and arranged everything based on my flight dates. I was picked up from the airport and left to my 5 star hotel, which was at a walking distance to the surgeon's clinic. I’d like to thank Welfare Abroad team for their fast, non-problematic and excellent service.

"Everything will go well"

Treatment Received: Rhinoplasty
I consulted Welfare Abroad regarding nose job. I had an unpleasant experience before so I was kinda of afraid to go for another one. Yet, my experience with Welfare Abroad was completely different from the previous one. They made everything to make me feel relaxed and secure. They offered me a free video consultation with the surgeon and also an in-person consultation in one of the two countries of my choice (Austria and Turkey). The consultation assured me that everything will go well and it really did! I would insist you to consider these people if you are planning to have a treatment abroad.

"Elegant clinic"
100%Reviewed 25 Mar 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Breast Implants
I have kids and am 42 years old. I wanted to look like how I was in my 20s. I contacted Welfare Abroad for my breast surgery and they organized an online consultation with one of their surgeons. I described the doctor what I expected and he informed me in detail what will be done during the surgery and how my breasts would look like after. I even felt bad after asking too many questions but the surgeon answered my questions patiently. I guess this is one of the good parts of Welfare Abroad, they are only working with international patients so they can emphasize. After the consultation, I decided to go ahead with Welfare Abroad. I met my doctor in his very elegant clinic in a high-end district one day before for an in-person consultation and checked his before-after pictures while discussing about my surgery. I did not experience any problem with my procedure and aftercare. My doctor explained the post-op instructions step by step and the experienced team of Welfare Abroad followed up with me every month. I am very thankful to my surgeon and Welfare Abroad for their approach.

Treatment Received: Liposuction
Even if it seems like a difficult decision regarding the clinic selection for the liposuction treatment it can be really easy to choose a clinic when there is Welfare Abroad. I got all my answers before my travel to Turkey and thanks to Welfare Abroad’s professional staff my experience was flawless.

Treatment Received: Tummy Tuck
If you are looking for a clinic which offers you a high quality treatment and a well prepared experience Welfare Abroad is the perfect choice for you.

When I discovered Welfare Abroad I made up my mind because they were offering a top class treatment by a European certified surgeon besides I had a chance to spent time in best part of Istanbul, Turkey. Thank you Welfare Abroad for everything!

"Exceeded expectations"
100%Reviewed 14 Mar 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Breast Implants
We visit Turkey every year for holiday, especially the coastal parts. When I decided to have my cosmetic surgery, we thought "Why not have it in Istanbul and do some sightseeing as well". That's how we reached Welfare Abroad and they definitely exceeded our expectations. The location of our hotel and our surgeon's clinic was just beautiful, in one of the luxurious regions of Istanbul (Nisantasi).
My breast surgery went great, couldn't be happier with my new size. Lastly, being able to see my surgeon for a consultation in my home country (Austria) was one of the main reasons of our decision.

"Shined like a diamond"

Treatment Received: Hair Transplant
Hair Transplantation

Before encountering Welfare Abroad I had seen many ads for my hair transplantation and most of them offers real cheap deals. After making some research I realized most of the clinics offer the treatment without a doctor just with a specialist. Since that is a lifetime decision I had to receive the best treatment with a good price. At that point Welfare Abroad shined like a diamond to me. Thanks to them I had my hair transplantation with a European certified doctor in a top class environment in Istanbul with a reasonable budget. If you are also looking for a place that offers high quality treatment with affordable price you should definitely choose Welfare Abroad.

"Definitely suggested!"

Treatment Received: Hair Transplant
I had my second hair transplant session with Welfare Abroad. My first session was done by a seemingly cheaper alternative, which resulted in a bad job. My experiences thought me that even the hair transplant procedure is simple, having it done by experienced hands like WA turns the whole medical travel into a dreamlike experience. Definitely suggested!
