I would recommend Sthetix to anyone who is contemplating cosmetic surgery. Mr Alvi really is my Fairy Godfather! I had lost over 8 stone in weight and despite exercise I was left with loose hanging skin which made me very self conscious. I went to Sthetix for a consultation as I was starting to think about a tummy tuck / abdomnioplasty. One consultation with Mr Alvi and I knew it was what I wanted to do. He was very reassuring and explained everything in full detail. Both him and the staff at Sthetix; Karen, Maria and Sophie were very approachable but did not do the ‘hard sell’ that I expected. The whole experience made me have a great sense of confidence in Sthetix as they seemed extremely ethical and professional.
After several consultations and forms, I had my surgery in December 2013. Knowing what I was about to put myself through, the recovery etc, I was extremely nervous on the day. Mr Alvi put me at ease straight away. He has such a calming influence and gave me great confidence that he would look after me. I had my surgery at Renacres private hospital in . The care was excellent and I was really looked after. The food was delicious too!
Mr Alvi came to see me the next day and offered me more advice, guidance and reassurance.
Following my surgery, I had several aftercare appointments and phone-calls to ensure that I am recovering well.
Today I have just returned my a minor op with Sthetix. Despite Mr Alvi removing 1kg of skin and doing an excellent job, following my recovery I was left with a fold of skin on each side, known as ‘dog ears’ they were not very noticeable but Mr Alvi is such a perfectionist that he advised me to have them removed, which I did. This time the surgery was minor and done at the surgery with local anesthetic. Mr Alvi chatted away to me during the procedure, as did Sophie his assistant. This put me at ease. He ensured I was numb and didn’t feel a thing. Afterwards he ensured I sat down and rested before he let me go and only when my husband arrived to collect me.
I am the last person I ever thought would have cosmetic surgery but I am so glad I did and even more glad that I chose Sthetix. If you are even contemplating surgery then I recommend you go and see them for a free and no pressure consultation.
