After many years of thinking about surgery, I finally chose Cosmetica because my cousin recommended them after her surgery. I was still nervous, however, at the idea of travelling abroad and went out there telling myself that if I had any doubts I would just have a holiday and not have the op. However, when I got to the clinic my mind was put at rest immediately - it was spotless inside, and the surgeon and his team were very confident and professional. I had the op on Thursday 23rd April, and I was sightseeing by Saturday! I had some discomfort, but not pain and I am thrilled with the result. I asked the surgeon to place the implant under the muscle for a more natural look, and he inserted the implants through an incision around the edge of my nipples, so the scarring is virtually invisible. My tips would be to take somebody with you, and ask for them to stay with you in the clinic too - my mum slept in the hospital room with me and it was great to have her company. The hotel is quiet - fab for relaxing and recuperating - but you could be bored if you're on your own. You will make friends with the other clients though, as you share minibus rides to and from the clinic. If you feel up to it, go and do some sightseeing but agree a price with the taxis outside the hotel before you go, and check the sign at the hotel gates which tells you how much the journeys should cost. But it's all much cheaper than the UK anyway! We did get pestered in the markets, which got annoying. Sidi Bou Said is worth a visit - Lutfi in the restaurant will tell you where to go and where to avoid. And finally, knowing a bit of French is useful. Sawcen and Nozha are on hand to interpret with the doctors etc, but my limited French helped with the hospital staff, and when out and about. The surgeon and his team are busy - you're on a private floor but below is a busy hospital - so you don't get lots of time with them but having seen the results not just of my surgery, but the other clients I was with, Dr D knows what he is doing so trust him!

    It’s now 8 weeks since I flew out to Tunis with Cosmetica Travel for my facelift at the Alyssa Clinic where Dr D... carried out the procedure. I have to say that Dr D... has given me, at the age of 62, my confidence back, changed my life and has made me feel just wonderful. I could say he’s my Michaelangelo, not quite given me the face of an angel but when I look in the mirror, he’s given me the face I’ve wanted for so many years. From the moment I arrived at Tunis airport, Cosmetica Travel took over and I had nothing else to worry about. At the clinic, I was given 5 star treatment by both the surgeon and his staff. The care I received was the best ever. Nurses were on call 24 hours and I felt in safe hands. The day of the operation came and was put at ease by Dr D... and everyone involved. After surgery, I was amazed at the lack of pain and was given painkillers, but after just one day, didn’t need them. I have nothing but praise for the nurses and although many of them couldn’t speak English, language didn’t seem as a problem, as we communicated with our hands, smiles and a general need to be understood in such a good humoured way. I loved my stay there. Aftercare at the hotel was second to none and the hotel and staff were so sympathetic to my situation, as they were there to make mine and other recovering patients’ stay as easy and effortless as possible. Where else could you recover from an operation sitting by the pool, in a bikini, in the shade of course, at a 5 star hotel knowing you had the best healthcare at hand. I have special thanks to say to Sawcen, Nousa and especially Sammy, my special friend, who was there whenever I needed anything, from shopping at the supermarket to just a chat about anything and he was also concerned about my safety when travelling away from the hotel. Both Sawcen and Nousa and Sammy were on hand every day and every three days for my visit to the clinic for a check up by Dr D.... The only symptoms I have now is a slight numbness in my cheeks and friends and family (who are not aware of my having the operation) telling me how fresh and ‘different’ I look, which is the response I wanted. Cosmetica Travel, The Alyssa Clinic, Dr D..., Sammy, Sawcen and Nousa – thank you for changing my life.

    Tummy Tuck & Lipo
    Had a tummy tuck and Lipo on the 20th April 2009. This was by far the best decision I had made, the care and surgery were of the highest possible standard in my opinion. You were treated with dignity and respect at all times. The operation was a success and I am already seeing the results that I wanted. The hotel was beautiful very quiet and peaceful. You will not regret your decision to have surgery with this company. Please feel free to email me with any questions or queries.

    We got back on 27.04.09. I am happy with how I look so far! Going to Tunisia for surgery was the BEST decision ever! Staying in the hotel to recover has really helped. I feel like I've had a real holiday and have come home looking better than ever. I did have some fears, but the care and support received was fantastic. Thank you to Sawcen and Same, we felt like we were leaving friends when it was time to go. The care in the clinic is fantastic, so clean!! The surgeon and his assistant were professional, a bit busy, but I trusted them completely. If anyone would like to get in touch I would be happy to discuss my experience.

    I had lost over 11 stone and developed a great deal of loose skin around my stomach. Cosmetica was recommended to me and I thought I would go through with the procedure. I had the surgery in 2007 and left it a while until posting to see what happened with the scarring. I am extremely pleased with the results. The surgeon was extremely honest and proffessional actually recommending I didn't have two procedures which were unecessary(and who was I to argue with the surgeon, he'd know better than anyone). The whole experience was extremely pleasant and within 2 days of the surgery I was able to explore the surrounding area. The hotel was extremely conformatable. I actually went through the experience alone which wasn't a problem as such but I would definately recommend having someone with you, if just to keep you company. The scarring has almost completely faded and I couldn't reccommend the companyt enough.
