I can say that this is the best decision I have ever made in my life. The life I have lived so far was a preview in terms of life quality. People considering having a surgery should make it real as soon as possible for living each moment of the life with quality and enjoyment and acquire a healthy body. I am grateful to Dr. Ibrahim Karatas and his crew for not leaving any questions in my mind.
