Subject: Tummy Tuck
Hi, I returned from surgery with Dr K. on 19th dec 2007, he is an amazing
guy, absolutely brill at his job, although I had tummy tuck and hernia (which I
did not know about until in theatre) plus lipo and none of my surgery is in the
region you are having, I am delighted with the results, he is a quiet and a
little shy, which may come across as indifferent, in fact when you joke with
him, he relaxes and is a very gentle kind man who speaks and understands good
English. So impressed am I with him that I will go back next year and have
face/eyes/double chin or some combination of these with him. I would also say,
the hospital look like the old London hospitals about 40 years ago, but the are
amazingly clean, no mrsa out there. Also Dr K is very thorough, he explains
what he intends doing, you can query or question him and he will tell you why
what you have in mind is not practical or possible. I am 110% delighted I chose
Budapest, thrilled with the results, amazed at their skills out there and
impressed by the support.

Subject: Tummy tuck
has been six weeks since my surgery and I really wanted to write a
recommendation regarding my surgery so here goes.
I had a full Tummy tuck with hip and waist liposuction in August 2007 and I can honestly
say that I am more than pleased with my results.
care I received was excellent, as a very senior NHS nurse, I had set
very high standards as to what I expected from not only the cosmetic
surgery but the before and after care, I was not disappointed with any
part of my care while home here in Glasgow and during my stay in
Budapest. I felt important and that you cared
as much about my results as I did, at no point did I feel like just
another patient. In fact, I almost felt like your only patient! Here is a
brief outline of my experience in Budapest:-)
promised I was collected at the airport and met taken to my hotel. The following day I met Dr R. who was, kinda weird if I’m
honest, but a brilliant surgeon who actually listened to me and treated
me with dignity and respect at all times. He proved this when it became
time to remove my clothes, I’m British and don’t do nudity!! He was
aware of how uncomfortable this was for me and made it as painless as
possible, not only while getting my photograph taken but as I waited
for my general anaesthetic - a male nurse started to attach ECG leads
to me and removed my blanket, he stopped him, covered me up and told
them, in English,” not until she’s asleep”. He has no idea how grateful
I was for that small gesture and how much it relaxed me and made me
feel that I was a person to him and not just a patient.
hospital I was treated in was very clean and the nurses very attentive,
although not much English was spoken, it didn’t prove a problem as they
gave me a list of words that I could point to when I needed something.
The thing that impressed me the most was that I didn’t need to ask for
anything, everything just turned up, painkillers, anti sickness pills,
food, water more pillows etc. Even Dr R. never seemed to leave the
building as he was always popping in and out and helped me set up my
lap top, in my experience no NHS surgeon thinks they have time to sit
with a patient and fix their computer! I have absolutely no complaints
regarding my time as an inpatient in Budapest.

If anyone is interested or needs some
reassurance, I have recently (Sept 17th), returned from Budapest having
had Upper and Lower eyelid surgery( Bletharaplasty) and am overjoyed at
I went to see the lovely Dr K who took great care of me, she was
very caring and could not have been more helpful. My scars are healing
well and you can see they will be virtually undetectable. I still have
a little swelling which you can't see when I'm wearing makeup but
everyone has noticed the difference.
I think, vital to have an English speaking host, I don't think I would
have gone otherwise.
And thanks to Linda for answering all my questions, doubts and
helping me every step of the way. You will never know how terrified I
II'm going back for more facial work in the new year although I'm
not sure what at the moment

Plastic Surgery + Plasma Skin Rejevenation Facial Treatments
I just wanted to share my experience in
Budapest with you, so here goes…
I needed to have extensive dental
surgery done and was quoted £ 22 000 + for implants, crowns
sinus lift etc here in the U.K. After numerous informative swift
emails I decided to take a 2 hour flight and
spend 10 days in Hungary and only £ 5000 on my new “ fangs”
( my friends thought I was mad and very brave!)
I arrived in Budapest at about 11pm and
a driver was waiting for me at the airport, who took me
straight to my lovely hotel where at something past midnight. So far so
midday the following day ( the
dental surgery is in part of the hotel, just off the lobby , all
discreet and modern and very professional)
I was very impressed with the dentist
knowledge and professional approach to my “case” She said that
she didn’t feel that I needed to have the sinus lift and implants
and could give me that “Hollywood” smile with bridges and crowns
, thus saving me a few thousand £’s and most of all pain and
discomfort , all to my advantage , so I rubbed my hands in glee and
said lets go for it.
Over the next 9 days I trotted down to
the clinic for numerous appointments for taking moulds , fittings,
preparations for the end result. I found the dental team very
friendly and efficient and we were even able to have a few laughs
and jokes ( Im terrified of injections and drills and basically a big
baby when it comes to” The Dentist” )
I decided to have some scar revision
surgery on my hips and wrist and also some botox around my eyes.
I met a fabulous surgeon called
AM , she is the blonde lady under the surgeon section on the
Hungary site. I felt as though she was more like a friend than a
surgeon, AM has such a kind caring manner and is such a
talented surgeon that I would go back tomorrow for any other nip and
tucks that I may need in the future. The clinic is lovely, very
modern ,private and yet again with wonderful friendly staff whom all
speak English. AM has studied all over the world and has a
huge file containing all the magazine articles ,interviews etc that
have been done about her , very impressive indeed.
For anyone considering any cosmetic
procedure I would advise you to talk to AM before making your
final decision on where to have your surgery done , she’s
wonderful, patient ,informative and has a great bedside manner.
My scar revision went really well,
under a local anaesthetic with a shot of Valium running through my
veins , I lay back and listened to Tina Turner ( I asked if they had
any music , and was pleasantly surprised to find I had a choice , so
Tina it was ). I was all done and dusted and hour or so later and
then had my botox done and hopped in a taxi and went back
to my hotel for a spot of lunch, I felt fine. . My time with
so calm and easy going and at the same time
professional and first class. Please consider this talented Surgeon
for your surgery. I would recommend her to my nearest and dearest
within a heartbeat.( and NO im not working for her or on commission !
, Im just a very happy patient.)
I actually wanted to have lipo on my
calves but AM said I didn’t have enough fat and took time to
explain all the reasons why I didn’t
need lipo, I was so impressed
that I was being advised against something that I thought I needed ,
no one was trying to rip me off or do something unnecessary, very
honest professional people were all around me in Budapest.
I had been considering having laser
skin resurfacing as at the age of 38 as I have a few lines and a lot
of freckles /sun damage on my face ,neck chest and arms. I really
just wanted rid of my freckles, something that has bothered me for
years. An appointment was made with the Laser clinic and we were
told all about this new treatment called Plasma skin resurfacing ,
its not laser ,its heat energy.
I can honestly say that Im so impressed
by my Plasma treatment , My skin looks so fresh young and radiant and
my freckles have disappeared that Im going to have my neck chest and
arms done within the next month. Its now 2 and a bit weeks since my
treatment and I have been out and about without a scrap of makeup on
,just moisturiser and lip gloss, its never been known , I usually
have my full face on just to grab a pint of milk !!
Well as you can gather , Im extremely
pleased with my decision to go to Budapest and had a wonderful time
in between having all my bits and pieces done , I love Budapest and
its people , it’s clean safe and very beautiful, extremely modern
and very reasonable as well.
So I came home with fantastic new
teeth, new scar revision scars , new skin and far too many new
clothes ,shoes and handbags ! Can’t wait to go back….
Also a great big thank you to Linda &
Mike for their prompt help with my debit card hiccup , much
happy from Ascot

I am writing to tell you of my
experience in Budapest.
I researched my options for about six
months before deciding to travel to Budapest for a breast reduction
emails were responded to, honestly and efficiently. Other
companies I spoke to had taken a more sales approach, as if they were
trying to sell me a holiday. As I come from a medical background
this concerned me as I as was aware that I wanted fairly major
I was met me at my apartment on
arrival and given the schedule for my stay.
The following morning
I would have my pre-surgery exams carried out.
The tests were extremely thorough and the clinic was clean, modern
The following morning I was collected
by taxi and taken to the clinic for my surgery. Again Dr P. took
time marking me up, explaining what he was going to do and taking
photographs. The surgery was not at all stressful. The
anaesthetist, nurses and clinic staff were highly efficient. The
clinic was clean and felt very relaxing. I recovered quickly from
the anaesthetic and was surprised not to have any pain. I stayed in
the clinic overnight leaving early evening the next day. Prior to
discharge Dr P. personally changed the dressings giving me the
opportunity to see my new breasts. I spent the remaining days in Budapest
recovering. I was able to get out and about and eat out.
Since returning home I have continued
to make a good recovery. My GP practice removed my stitches and was
impressed with the surgery. I would certainly recommend Linda
Briggs services in Budapest to anyone considering surgery. The quality of
surgery, co-ordination of care was excellent. Special thanks to Dr.
P. for the excellent surgery.

Subject: Eye surgery in Budapest
I would just like to say
I flew to Budapest to
have my eyelids done at the end of March and am very pleased both with the
result and the service you provided in the UK.
I love my eyes now ...!
where before I hated them,I had skin that sat on my eyelashes especially when I
was tired. I look so awake now.
The operation was not
pleasant but well worth the .. I dont know what the word is..as I said it
was not pleasant.
However the end result
was well worth it.
Thank you once again.

Subject: Upper/Lower Blepharoplasty
started thinking about having Blepharoplasty completed since everyone
had started to comment on how tired I looked. I began to scan the Internet ads and became more confused day by day until I found
Linda Briggs web site. I contacted her and asked did she have any
contacts in Budapest
I arranged the surgery
approximately 9 months after my consultation as I knew I had holidays
due then. I have to say I was so impressed with the way the visit
was organized and then my meeting with the
surgeon Dr. P, his manner and knowledge on the subject impressed
me even more, so that I knew there was no need for a second
consultation as I came out with no doubts. I went to consultation
with Dr. P to enquire about lower Blepharoplasty and just on my way
out the door I decided to ask Dr. P did he think I should have the
uppers done also. He said it would be much better but did not push
at all and would not have suggested same only that I mentioned it.
It proved to me that it was not just the fee he was interested in,
and if I had known then what I know now - the uppers were the most
important ones for me personally to have had completed...
flew into Budapest alone on March 19th. A taxi was waiting
to collect me and take me to my apartment. I decided I would prefer
stay in an apartment rather than a hotel as I wanted a private
setting for my recuperation.
taken down to the clinic to have bloods and e.c.g
done. I have to say I was so impressed with the way things were
organized. I thought I would have to organize all of this myself.
Once the bloods and e.c.g were done I was free for the day to head
off shopping and of course to get some food in for my recuperation
DAY OF THE OPERATION March 21, 2007
met with Dr. P. He
examined my eyes and took some photographs. When he walked into the
room I must confess to having a secret panic attack thinking what am
I doing here and what kind of a job will he do. He made me feel at
ease straight away and acknowledged the fact that he knew what I was
thinking and understood how nervous I was and instantly I became more
confident and at ease. He is such a kind compassionate doctor. I
really appreciated so much his understanding and ability to empathise
with me at the time as I don’t think I could have felt any more
nervous, especially since I had traveled alone. No doubt he is well
used to seeing this with his patients and I am sure I was not the
first or last nervous patient he was going to meet.
nurse from theatre collected me at 11.00am. The operation was
preformed while I was awake for more accuracy with the end result.
In total it took four hours (I think the normal time is three or less
but I had to be awkward). Local anesthetic was used and he advised
me to let him know immediately if I felt any discomfort. I have to
say I was relieved when I heard him say that he was finished the
procedure as it would have been much simpler if I was fast asleep for
the operation, but at the same time I preferred a little discomfort
knowing that everything was checked at all times for accuracy.
I got back to my temporary room in the clinic the nurse put ice packs
on my eyes, and also inserted drops so I just lay still. She was so
kind and caring also. The first thing I noticed was that I had an
unmerciful headache as I guess it was four of the most stressful
hours I had ever spent, that’s just me, I am one of those people
that could not relax until it was all over, nothing at all to do with
the doctor, he was so considerate right through the whole procedure.
The nurse got me a tablet for the headache and it eased straight
away. I think it is clear
to be seen that these people really went out of there way for me and
done everything they possibly could to put me at ease. It’s the
same service they provide to all visitors traveling for medical.
They understand how people are feeling and want to make the
experience as pleasant and successful as they possibly can. It was
one of the most impressive trips I have ever been on as far as
competent and well organized people are concerned. When leaving the
clinic after the surgery Dr. P assured me if I had any problems at
all I could ring him at any hour day or night but I did not have to
were lots of stitches around my eyes after the procedure so sterile
strips were put on the top and bottom eyelids to stop the ends of the
stitches dangling into my eyes. I did not ask for any pain killers
when leaving and did not notice any pain during the first week. I
was given some instructions to follow i.e. (1 ) not to wash my hair
as it would irritate the wounds (2) put in the drops every three
hours (3) rest my eyes as much as possible, with very little reading
or watching of TV. I kept a cool ice pack on my eyes any time I
thought of it and slept on my back for most of my stay in Budapest
which took some getting used to.
was lovely to get back to my nice quite private apartment to chill
out and relax after the procedure.
Dr. P was well impressed with his
work and took out the stitches himself that Tuesday which was the
27th March. Removing the stitches around the corners of my
eyes made me cringe a bit and my eyes watered but that had been the
only pain I experienced for a few seconds during my entire stay in
Budapest (apart from the headache of course which was self
inflicted). I could not believe how clean the wound looked and no
one would ever know I had lower Blepharoplasty as there was not even
a mark not to mention a scar where the stitches were. I had
absolutely no bruising what so ever on my face. I did have swelling
which was almost gone on that Tuesday the stitches were removed. The
upper scarring was quite pronounced (and still is, but can be
concealed by makeup) but it was such a brilliant feeling to have the
stitches out and be able to wash my hair with shampoo. Dr. P told
me not to use make up for ten days and when I was flying home the
next day I just looked like someone that had had a good cry.
day in Budapest.
up at my apartment by a taxi. The
taxis were absolutely brilliant and so punctual. They were never
late and were normally there fifteen minutes or more before the time.
I had been given me an estimate before I went to Budapest on what
the taxis may cost and it worked out almost exact to his estimate.
This left me knowing exactly how much money I needed to bring with
me, (but you can always use your bank link pass card to get more
money out if you run low on cash) what the doctor would cost and what
the taxis would cost. Again I have to say the organization here was
brilliant as knowing all costs involved left me feeling really secure
re the money side of things.
am so glad I had the procedure and to add to the experience I
totally enjoyed Budapest as it is a magnificent city. I will go back
one day as there was so much to see and do in this Beautiful city...
