Dr. Mehmet Surmeli’s Approach to Cosmetic Procedures

In today’s world, cosmetic procedures have become an important element of the well-being and self-esteem of modern people. For many, they are the mainstay of ‘the healthy individual.’

Dr. Surmeli focuses on the relationship of an individual with their doctor. He considers it to be an exceptional relation of trust. As a cosmetic surgeon, he believes that becoming a source of trust for patients is crucial patients.

Dr. Mehmet Surmeli’s Approach for International Patients 

Sr. Mehmet Surmeli is a compassionate, warm, and caring person who takes ample time to hear the patient’s concerns. For international patients, he follows an approach of safe practice. Dr. Surmeli believes that every aesthetic procedure has its limitations. Some surgeries need a multidisciplinary approach, while others call for specific equipment to make the person achieve their aesthetic goals. The management of patients who travel from abroad is not the same as that of locals in Turkey. This, in turn, influences the number of procedures to be performed on them. Dr. Surmeli and his staff prefer the safest route and do fewer surgeries that guarantee patient’s safety and long-term well-being. 

For international patients who have chronic physical and mental conditions, Dr. Surmeli avoids performing surgeries.

Dr. Surmeli places a huge importance on the professionalism, care, and comfort of his patients. Not surprisingly, these are the exact words that patients speak of when putting forth their reviews about him.
