First of all, sorry about the long review but I believe my exprience will be helpful for many people struggling to decide on BBL in Turkey with Essi.
I have undergone BBL surgery in Izmir with Essi on November. I was very nervous due to risk, that's why it took me over a year to decide. I've visited Essi's London office 2 times, Semra has helped me a lot with honest answers. I’ve had skype consultation with Mr Rahmi as well. They gave me all the necessary information and I felt that they were not after making a sales, that’s actually one of the reasons that I chose their practice, which I am so happy that I did.
After I made my decision, they have asked me to have some blood tests, I’ve had them in my local clinic, and then the surgeon approved me as a patient. They told me that their consultant surgeon does not accept many patients especially for BBL, so I was happy to know that I am healthy enough!!
I’ve transferred the booking deposit (£900) to their account and then booked my flight tickets to 1 month later. I’ve transferred the rest of the amount just a day before my flight and then prepared myself for the whole journey. If you will have BBL, please don’t forget to take your iron pills, I started to take it 1 week before my operation just in case. My flight was ok, I had a direct flight from London to Izmir by Pegasus, it’s a budget airlines but I think it was above average.
My patient care assistant Maya has picked me up from the airport and took me to my hotel. The hotel is Ramada, it’s a decent hotel with a nice view, unfortunately I’ve not used any facilities but that’s ok.
After I checked in, we went to Essi’s clinic in the city to meet with my surgeon for my first physical consultation. Mr Rahmi is a great surgeon imo, he speaks fluent English, not extremely good I must admit. As I previously researched, I knew that he has a huge experience with BBL, liposuction and tummy tuck operations.
I asked all my questions and told my expectations again, it took more than 1 hour and then we said goodbye. My lovely patient care assistant Maya has offered me a facial in the clinic as a gift, which was excellent, I loved the facial and especially the hand massage. Then, it was already evening and maya left me to the hotel. My surgery was at 11 am, I had to be at the hospital 2 hours before, so we left the hotel at 8 am. Once we were at the hospital, they took me back into a preparation room. I met with the nurses who would be taking care of me post-op.
Maya was also there to support me (thanks for the psychological support all the way too). One of the nurses gave me an IV. After that, I was given the first anaesthesia at the preparation room, then I was taken to the surgery room. I woke up from the surgery with no issues and with almost zero pain at the room I would be staying in overnight.
The highest my pain level got during my recovery period was maximum 4 out of 10, but of course this might be different for every individual. I stayed 1 night at the hospital, the nurses were very nice although they had limited English, so Maya was translating my questions. The surgeon saw me after I woke up, he said the operation went perfect and it’s time to recover. I was taken to the hotel by Essi’s patient care team the next day. I stayed 6 more nights in the hotel, the surgeon saw me 2 more times and one of the nurses or my patient care assistants was visiting me everyday. I did not have any pain thanks to the painkillers. I spent most of my time with facetimeing at my room. The recovery took around 5 days for me, I was ok when I was at the airport returning to London.
Overall, I am very satisfied with my decision to get a BBL with Essi Cosmetic Surgery and Dr Rahmi as my surgeon. Shortly after my surgery, I saw a great outcome and was very happy.
