When you begin communicating to Clineca, is hard to remember they are a business and not family: since the first messages you can't avoid to fall in love with your operator, that is ALWAYS there for you beyond any expectations (Maria you are the best!💜)
Once you arrive at the airport a lovely driver comes to pick you up (i got 2 roses!), the van is so comfortable and the wifi very helpful.
I travelled from Italy alone to have my rhinoplasty plus chin liposuction, my first time ever in Istanbul, so to me it was really important to have someone to refer to.
The hotel was AMAZING, with the most incredible buffet breakfast I have ever seen in my whole life, still miss it a lot!
The day after the driver came to pick me from the hotel to bring me to the hospital, and I met the most exquisite nurse you can meet, love you Yağmur!
She guides you through all the exams that must be done, until the moment you wait for your surgery time.
I then met my amazing surgeon, dr. Can:
This is very important. I met some other surgeons in my country, but nobody was accurate as she was! She saw some issues to work on and gave me the best advise on what kind of nose would have fit my face, according with my tissues and the rest.
She speaks perfect English and I am so happy with what she did!
The surgery went good, and in the post-operation they set a group for you, available 24/7 for whatever you may need.
The nurses in the hospital don't speak English but you'll find a way to communicate. They know the main words (painkillers, antibiotics...)
Ah, not to forget how amazing are the rooms in the hospital! I've been traumatised in Italy, when I had to operate my leg, so I was little scared. But in that hospital is a totally different experience!
The first couple of days are not easy, obviously. You've been operated! I came back to the hotel the day after the procedure (thanks to the driver!) and there your nurse (who does speak English!) will come to visit you every day.
You are given all the medicines you need, and I particularly suggest the arnica cream that is a miracle on your post-operation signs!
Hotel staff will provide you kg of ice and you can also have your meals in the room (that is big with a luxury bathroom!)
A couple of days after I really felt the need to go out and see the city.
Tampons in the nose (i had a severe septum deviation, so I needed them) are not comfortable and I was really looking forward to removing them, but you can make it! Nothing impossible.
For 2 days I enjoyed Sultanameth, feeling very sad my time in Istanbul was almost over!
Removing the stitches and tampons was not painful at all, it is just a bit annoying the removal of the cast, but anything too bad.
I cried once I felt how is to breathe for the first time in my life! I was very scared of this operation, the reason why I waited 20 years since my first diagnosis! Please, don't be like me, it is really worthy. Do it!!
Dr Can, she is amazing! She did a masterpiece with my nose, giving it more symmetry, in a way no other surgeon planned before! I can say she changed my life, fixing breathing problems as well as aesthetic aspect.
I was deeply moved and grateful for my new aspect. Nose and chin are still healing but every day is a little better.
I would recommend Clineca and dott. Can a million time.
The prices are absolutely competitive, saving a high standard of quality.
Clineca gives everyone the possibility to be the best version of her/himself, in such a wonderful city Istanbul is (and the food is the best!)
The whole experience is amazing! I am definitely thinking to come back in the future: maybe I can have liposuction under my arms before I evolve- turning into a flying squirrel.
Thanks to: dr. Can, Maria, the drivers, Çağatay, Yağmur, and Sinem, I wish you all the best!
