Having been to speak to staff (not always medically trained, let alone surgeons) at 6 different clinics, I knew when I met Mr Alvi that I had found the right place. I was fully informed of every aspect of the procedure and felt totally confident. The understanding that if i needed to see Mr Alvi following the surgery, I could, was hugely reassuring (rather than a ‘fly-in’ surgeon you would have to wait until they were back in the city to see!) I am extremely pleased with the results of my tummy tuck; in fact it’s better than I thought it could be. Recovery was quick and without any complications. I would recommend Sthetix and Mr Alvi to anyone considering having cosmetic surgery.
