When I met Mr Persico for the first time in Italy I decided to follow him for my surgery even if he was in Melbourne!
The relationship between the plastic surgeon and the patient is very important for me. I had a consultation with twenty surgeons in Italy before him but nobody transmitted the same level of trust.
Mr Persico told me the truth about the results and the recovery time related to my surgery and this was very important. I still remember when he said: “I cannot make you look like a model however I can achieve the best results based on how you are. If you are happy with this we can go ahead otherwise, I believe I’m not the right surgeon for you!”
This was priceless for me.
If there isn’t the right feeling between a patient and the medical team you don’t active great results. Mine were fantastic!
I feel 20 years younger after my tummy tuck and liposuction on my legs. Next step is breast surgery!
However before going ahead I was obviously very well informed about other people’s feedback regarding their surgical experiences. It came out that most of them had a very bad one even going with the top clinics. Unfortunately they didn’t receive the same level of care that I received.
The fact that I was not waiting in the reception room and that I was welcomed warmly was crucial. It’s important to be pampered. Everybody wants that and to me if this is missed, the clinics loose 50% of value from the start.
A very good friend of mine that had similar surgery with another company, paid much much more than me without having the same quality experience. After the surgery he had a very bad recovery time. He was in hospital and was followed only by nurses that had nothing to do with his original medical team. Not even the surgeon checked him once after the surgery!
It was a nightmare! This is when I started to look around for my surgery.
I spent much less coming to England for my operation than I would have spent in my own country, even with the top companies but at Canova Medical the whole service was superior.
An experience that I would have again! For me it’s not important where the clinic is. When you find a well organised medical team, genuine, trustworthy and passionate about what they do, well, this is the most important thing for me. More important than thousands of kilometres of distance!
