Rejuvenation after 4 children: I was 55


After 4 kids and a lifetime of stress I got to the point of starting to loose my confidence. I hated seeing myself in family photos and made my husband delete practically every photo he took of me. So having landed in Istanbul, which is reputed to be the 3rd or 4th largest market for offshore medical procedures, and finally having some time to myself we made the decision to get a rejuvenation. Initially I just wanted some lipo and a tummy tuck. I was a bit apprehensive as I don't even watch hospital shows being a bit squeamish about this sort of thing. But having submitted to the tummy tuck and seeing the results of face lifts on this site and with my doctor I decided to extend the rejuvenation to my face as well. After all that is the one thing that you can only hide so much, and the most expensive make up serums in the world aren't going to cut it despite their claims to miracles.

Having done extensive online research we finally settled on Dr Ercan Beys practice in Atasehir. He was quick to respond to my email enquiry and the hospital he is associated with is part of a group that is both modern well run and has excellent facilities. Something we both felt was important in the event that if anything did go wrong having a sizable facility backing up the surgeon was very important to us.
In the first meeting with Ercan Bey he put me thoroughly at ease. He explained the procedure to me carefully and answered all our questions with care and attention. He has a great sense of humor and his English is excellent. He is friendly and open towards both of us.
He asked for pictures of me in my thirties and forties and he really got my personality and what I was trying to achieve. From this he was able to create and give me back myself and I cannot thank him enough.
After the operation tummy tuck I was in a bit of pain but he and the staff were swift and courteous dealing with it. Both opps required a two night stay in Hospital. This has been followed up with weekly visits to see Ercan Bey. He has also been available via text phone and email and has assisted us at every opportunity.
When he sent the pictures through this last week that you see here i was completely floored. My husband joked that he sent the wrong pictures.
Anyway I have no regrets about getting the procedure done. The disolvable stitches are almost gone and the swelling has gone down considerably.
However do yourself a favor and get a supply of MAC Studio Finish Concealer. It will get you out of the house faster and that is the hardest part. Being cooped up in the recovery phases.
The hospital was great. They gave us companion meals for when My husband visited.some of the nurses have got excelelnt English and a caring and attentive. They also have an interpreter on the end of a phone who can assist or come to you if needed.

You look great! Like your own child or younger sister! Take care!


Wow! That's a stunning result. Thank you so much for your contribution and such a detailed review! I really liked that your doctor asked for your pictures of you in your thirties and forties and that he got your personality.
May I ask you about your current situation - are you following new trends in the plastic and aesthetic surgery or was that your only experience?
Would you mind sharing some more pictures? As this is really awesome!


Wow what an excellent job the surgeon did!


quote "...When he sent the pictures through this last week that you see here i was completely floored. My husband joked that he sent the wrong pictures..." this part is not clear. Did the dr. send you these pictures ? do you have selfies ? what kind of facelift did he perform on you ?
