Plastic surgery
Wonderful Dr. Ali! Made sure that our minds were in the same page. Stayed communicative throughout the procedure. He is an incredible surgeon who cares about the product of his work and the patients well-being. Ms. Nika was my contact. She called me to check in always responded to my messages within 5 minutes. They know what they are doing. My cast was removed 6 days post Op. 90 percent of the bruising and swelling was gone as well. Makkaram helped with translating and went out of his way to make us feel taken care of. Hanging up my coat taking my husband out for food etc. They had plenty of English and Russian speaking personnel. They constantly asked if I had any questions and were happy to answer. Couldn’t recommend this team more. 30/11/2023

breast augmentation
I learned about eastern clinic through instagram. When I decided to have surgery, I contacted them. I also contacted a couple of other clinics but they were much more professional. We fixed the date and I went to Istanbul. They organized everything. Transport, hotel. Surgery went great. I had breast augmentation and removal of excess skin on my stomach. I had no doubts about anything. They followed me all the way. All the hospital staff were super nice. Mehmet the guy I texted with. (also speaks Italian) Ayla, the girl who helped me with the bureaucracy and was close to me all the time. Dr Ali Ozgur Karakas most deserving of my beautiful appearance. Thanks a lot to everyone. 13/04/2023

Mommymakeover
i was also operated by dr ali . It was a very big surgery but I trusted him blindly from the start and I don't regret it at all! Before the operation he explained everything to me well and after the operation he came several times a day to check if I was okay. Ayla looked after me from start to finish and was a great help. dr. Ali and Ayla motivated me a lot after the operation and now after the third day I feel very good! the nurses in the hospital and who came to the hotel were very friendly and professional! I thank you for everything! 02/06/2023

mammoplasty
The best decision I made was getting my breast lift, reduction and implants at Eastern Clinique. The staff were all extremely helpful through the entire process and the surgeon did an amazing job on my breasts. The aftercare has also been amazing. Cemre still keeps in touch via WhatsApp to ensure recovery is smooth and successful. The G Hotel is immaculate and such a good environment for those recovering from surgery. Would highly recommend Eastern Clinique and Dr Ali Özgür Karakas to anyone debating going for surgery in Istanbul. 28/03/2023

I can honestly say I made the best choice. from arriving at the airport to going back home to the uk on the 11th january .They catered for me in every need. the hotel was beautiful also. and dr Ali is an amazing surgeon and i am more than happy of my outcome. i still cannot believe that my new stomach is mine. i thank all staff of eastern clinique for everything . Еspecially Dr Ali thank you. 05/01/2023
