I traveled from the UK to Istanbul for a Mummy Makeover with Clinic International, this included a Tummy Tuck, 360 Vaser Liposuction, and Breast lift & Implants.
I am currently 5 days post op and Clinic International has been brilliant from my initial inquiries with the sales consultant Ertan (answering the 100’s questions I had) to the travel coordinator Onur (arranging all my travel and surgery requests) to my host Büşra who has been absolutely fantastic, she has been there for me every step of the way throughout my time in Istanbul.
I would highly recommend using this company.
In regards to the surgery itself and the recovery, I totally underestimated how difficult it would be, the first two days were definitely the toughest. I would not advise doing this alone, you 100% need to bring a companion with you. The breast lift and recovery is ok but the tummy tuck and 360 vaser lipo is very debilitating and uncomfortable.
In regards to the surgeon, Dr. Daghan Isik, and his surgical team (the two males), they were also fantastic and I cannot fault them. One of the doctor's nursing assistants was very rude but she was rude to everyone including Büşra my host, so I think that is just her unfortunate personality. So far I am very happy with my results, they are very natural. I am a type one diabetic, so this was a high-risk surgery for me but Dr. Daghan Isik really looked after me and took extra precautions to ensure my safety and recovery.
The only criticisms I have are from the nurses at the hospital after the procedure. The aftercare isn’t anything compared to the UK, they were not very attentive and I didn’t feel very looked after, but I don’t know if that is normal for the healthcare in Istanbul. They completed very few observations on me post-surgery, luckily and my companion is a nurse so we took a thermometer, BP machine, and everything we needed to check my observations and knew what to look for.
Overall I would highly recommend Clinic International and would like to thank Büşra for looking after me so well. The only downside was the aftercare by the nurses in the hospital and one of the doctor's rude assistants.
