So here’s my review of Now Cosmetic Surgery following a double eyelift, breast implants and uplift.
A friend suggested Now after she had surgery with them and was impressed with them. My first contact was via Facebook and they seemed very professional. I then sent photos via email and was given a firm price, the lots of info about the process and what to expect. The communication was easy, the staff very helpful and knowledgeable.
As I live quite a distance from Yorkshire I chose to have a consultation by phone which went through basic medical questions, again very professional.
I chose my surgery date, booked our flights and paid a £500 deposit to Now by credit card over the phone to confirm my booking. I received a receipt immediately and a confirmation email. My boyfriend went with me and only had to pay for flights as an accompanying friend is no extra charge for accommodation etc.
About a week before I was due to travel to Istanbul, I received a call from Karl at Now. He went through a few last details with me, gave me a few tips on what to take etc which was useful and very reassuring.
The 4-hour flight was Manchester to Istanbul Ataturk with Turkish Airlines and was really good. As we went through to arrivals we turned right and met my personal driver near the Vodafone stand as instructed. He was holding a board with my name on it. He helped us with our luggage and took us to the Mercedes which was beautiful; blacked out windows, leather and walnut interior, wifi, a drinks cabinet etc. The journey to the villa took about 30 minutes.
The first impression of the villa was wow! We drove into the private gated grounds, walked into the 5-star villa which is really plush with the super cool decor and was welcomed by the lovely Lula. Our room was very nice, immaculately clean with twin beds and en-suite bathroom. The heated pool is quite big and the staff were lovely during our stay.
The next morning was surgery day. The LIV Hospital is as impressive as the patient villa; super futuristic and absolutely immaculate. I met the surgeon and went through everything with him. He spoke good English and was lovely. I was gowned up and into surgery soon after.
Obviously, for the next couple of hours, I was under the general anaesthetic. However, all went well and I awoke in my recovery room and spent one night there, well looked after but a bit groggy. The next afternoon it was back to the patient villa where I recuperated for four days.
I did have a check up back at the hospital after a day in the villa. The staff are all so lovely, took care of me and my boyfriend in every way. All the meals were healthy and very nice. The nurse was good and made sure I took my pain relief, medication and changed my dressings etc. I did have some discomfort but it was expected.
We were driven back to the airport and flew back to Manchester. The day after we returned I got a call from Karl checking how everything went and how I was which I really appreciated.
The service from start to finish was superb in every way and I’ll recommend Now Cosmetic Surgery to friends. The only negative if I had to think of something was that the weather wasn’t great while we were in Turkey.
