[Resolved] revitalize in turkey / dangerous surgery

1 izmir, Turkey Review updated:

After having liposuction, tummy tuck and arm lift my tummy became infected with bacteria. After staying at the hospital in Izmir I was sent to their Villa but was left feeling very weak.After 10 days I returned home to the Uk, but collapsed at Istanbul Airport and had to be wheeled to my connecting flight to the Uk.After arriving in the UK I spent the next 2 weeks in Frenchay Hospital Bristol UK because my tummy was seriously infected (see photos).They put me on penicillan and other medications to kill the infection.I then had to have 2 more operations.The first was to clean my tummy out as it was creating puss.The second was to have a skin graft from my leg to repair the tummy tuck wound.

I have requested that the hospital return my money for the infections I suffered but they have refused.

  • Resolution statement

    They called me and offered all required medical assistance and helped me to sort out my problem which has been caused by unexperienced staff at NHS hospitals.

    The Resolution Statement clearly is not written by the complainant.

    I had Breast enlargement & uplift at RevitalizeINturkey & everything was fine until they were completely healed, I’ve been left with what look like scars from a horror movie & they wouldn’t do anything about it, even started ignoring my messages after a week or so. I wish I chose to save a bit more and have my surgery in the uk.

    @stx89 Hi have they not offered any alternative treatment ? Have they still not responded ? I’ve also had a bad experience with them and I’m being ignored

    @Cal123 Hi, Me tool. I had a face lift and although it was an improvement it certainly wasn't as good as it should have been. After a few months there was loosening of the skin under my chin and around my neck. I sent them pics and was fobbed off with, 'you should put weight on to make it firm'. Load of rubbish. They also ignored me after a while. Disappointed on the whole. I also wish I'd have saved more and had it done in the UK.

    I had a tummy tuck and breast enlargement. While I was in the villa for 10 days I became quite poorly I was given some antibiotics (I made them very aware I was allergic to penicillin) I started taking the tablets only to find they contained penicillin. Since being back in the uk I had to have corrective surgery on my breasts and I’m left with a disfigurement after the tummy tuck. When I made a complaint I was told that I was severely disfigured before the op and that I should count myself lucky. I was also told if I made any bad reviews on any sites that legal action would be taken against me

    We’d like to post in our defence, having read these comments, that the only complaint we are aware of is the first one which was resolved mutually without any liability on our behalf being accepted since the disfiguring treatment occurred after the patient handed herself to the care of other healthcare professionals.

    With regards to subsequent complaints on this board we kindly invite the posters to verify their identity to prove they were in fact actual patients of ours since any complaint lacking evidence and substance can be misleading.

    On no account would we threaten anyone with legal action for posting a bad review. That would not be something compatible with our 15 years of experience and professionalism. We always endeavour to resolve complaints in accordance with our terms and guarantee policy.
