The Decision to Have Surgery in Turkey

I've been in the beauty and cosmetic industry in the UK for over two decades. However, my struggle with weight persisted. A decade ago, I had weight loss surgery in the UK, which initially showed promise but eventually led me back to where I started. Dissatisfied with the results, I considered a revision sleeve gastrectomy. To my dismay, no UK surgeon was willing to perform the procedure, despite its medical necessity.

This pushed me to explore options elsewhere, leading me to a hospital in Izmir, Turkey, with a team of nearly 100 expert surgeons. After consulting with healthcare professionals, I booked my flight and embarked on this life-changing journey. Fortunately, the surgery was a success, and I embraced a healthier life, all at a cost significantly lower than what I would have paid in the UK.

The Birth of Healthy Mates

Experiencing remarkable results after my surgery, I couldn't help but wonder why this opportunity wasn't readily available to everyone in the UK. The process of getting surgery in the UK, even when medically needed, can be challenging and frustrating. That's when I decided to establish Healthy Mates in Turkey, to share my knowledge and support my fellow Brits on their journeys to better health.

Today, Healthy Mates serves approximately 100 patients each month, all hailing from the UK. Our team of 20 healthcare professionals is well-versed in the services we provide at accredited hospitals and clinics across Turkey, endorsed by independent international bodies. We are also officially registered with the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Turkey.

Now, it's your turn to take that life-changing step and join our Healthy Mates family.
