Shereifa is 61 years old woman who lives in UK. Her father is from Yemen. She has one sister, 3 brothers, 3 sons age of 23, 24 and 31. She was in construction business as an engineer. Now retired and decided to engineer herself….this time.
Let’s hear her patient story by her own words;
“ Hello everyone. I want to share my story with you. A while ago I was on Atkins diet and I lost 7 stones. I still cannot believe myself now. I lost a lot of weight but later on, my weights started to come back and I finally decided to have a gastric band. The gastric band got my weight down than
from 109 kg to 74 kg. I was very happy.
In 2007, the band slipped and they had to remove it from my body. After 6 months, my weight started to increase again. Accordingly, they gave me a second gastric bypass. Finally, I maintained my weight but in my family obesity is genetical unfortunately.
Than, I started to receive my plastic surgeries. I found Dr.Mehmet Veli Karaaltın from internet. First, I had my face lift, facial fat transfer and arms lift. I had in two sessions those operations because they were both too long procedures to be done all in one shut. Between 2 operations we had waited for 10 days.
Now for the second time, I came back to Turkey to Dr.Mehmet for fat transfer to my butt and for my tight and neck lift. Before these surgeries you could easily grab a handful skin and fat on my arms and on my legs. Skin was loose and was looking quite nasty. Now I look like 30 years old. No one can guess my real age. Dr. Karaaltın also made some fat transfer to my face and I never looked so fresh and my skin so tight and energetic even in my 30s.
I am so happy with my doctor that I brought my 5 friends to him. Hospital and facilities, the nurses are all amazing, very good and very clean also. People are friendly and always helpful. Istanbul is an historical city that one week is never enough to discover all those amazing places to visit.
What I would recommend to the new patients is that they need to set their minds up. They must mentally ready to have those operations.
Also ‘after care’ is perfect. You keep coming to the hospital for all controls and they have great service mentality. Just across the hospital there are many hotel options and all located at city center.
I traded my skin for scars. I personally prefer to have scars but not a loose skin. They can treat the scars later by laser, cell spray system and stem cell.
The doctor is absolutely amazing, he makes you feel very comfortable. He is very friendly. I found him in internet and it was my best discovery. He is surgically very talented and professional. His team also like him. He is not about the money he is about the job he cares and you can not find this easily.
You will be in safe hands and if you need to hear my experience, the new patients can contact with me any time. It would be my pleasure to share with them the all stages of my aesthetic surgeries.
Thank you everyone.”
