2014-10-29:

I would like to share my story/journey of my mini tummy tuck and 900ml of fat removal with the Laderma clinic in Prague. I would like to say a 'special' thank you to Suzzane Cerna my Surgeon :-* And the nurses who work so tirelessly to make the clinics patients comfortable :-F . I had been an athlete in my younger days (I am now 48years old) and had always looked after my body,with which I was very proud of. But after having my four children ranging from 24years to 10years old,and especially after my third child,who was a mighty 9lb,I found that even after trillions of sit ups,I could not regain the flat tummy I had before. Obviously age and hormones had intervened and I was struggling. ||:| . In 2012 I went to Belgium and had some liposuction,which yes,did remove the excess fat and looked quite good for a while,but I still,after trillions of sit ups,had a belly which remained a constant reminder of my pregnancies(love you my babies {H} )..It was then that I decided to start my search for a reputable surgeon. I emailed several clinics in The Czech Republic/Poland and even the UK,but the UK was just far too expensive to even consider. I do believe now,that there are some marvelous surgeons out there,you just have to do your home work and google,google, google..Even using the translator to read comments/feedback etc. I had read some horror stories of woman/men who had had surgery in both the UK and abroad and I didn't want to elevate the risks. I was advised by one particular clinic,that I would never achieve a flat stomach through sit ups,as my pregnancies had somewhat damaged the rectus muscles,but since then, I have learned that I had actually got good stomach muscles and that my work outs and zillions of sit ups had worked to a certain degree (Dr Cerna told me this,when I met her in Prague)..But I still needed some help,so she suggested a mini tuck with the fat removal. She even deducted some of the money from the original quote AND removed a little white bump from my upper eyelid,caused by the scar after upper eyelid surgery(which can happen)She said it bugged her :LOL: AND at no extra cost! I had read comments about Dr Cerna on this and other websites,praising her work,but never really contemplated looking up the clinic,until the very end of my search. When I did,I read 'everything' on the website,including her own journey. This made me think that although she was a professional,she was also a 'real' person,just like you and me,but also willing to go that extra and tell us about her self,above and beyond.You can read her own journey on the Laderma website. It was actually this that made my mind up. :newsncoffee: I am back at home now :newsncoffee: . I had my mini tummy tuck and 900ml of fat removed on 14th October 2014,after arriving in Prague on 12th Oct. I left Prague on 21st October. From the moment I arrived and was picked up at the airport by Mr Kovac, I new that I had done the right thing. I don't know what it is :dontknow: ,but I have read it before,It's like a light bulb which switches on and even after the few years of searching,I realized that Dr Cerna was the right surgeon for me. I don't want to sound cheesy,but that's it! It has happened before. The main thing is that we do our research like there is no tomorrow and by doing that, we can mostly eliminate the potential risks. My experience of the last liposuction was not very good,but that's another story. What is done is done. Dr Cerna prides herself on the fact that she gives her clients that personal care,and it works for her! She is an extremely clever woman and a marvelous surgeon,she also paints and you will see her paintings outside of her consulting room,on the walls;my tummy is proof to that,even at this early stage. From the moment of that pick up at the airport by the lovely Mr Kovac,until you are dropped off at the airport by him. Your apartment is in the same building as the consulting rooms(clinic/operating theater is five mins round the corner) and you are seen everyday to talk/hug/cry/get your dressings changed(if you don't turn up;I overslept one day, :nono: you receive a friendly knock at the apartment door,and ushered upstairs to see Dr Cerna)..Where you are welcomed by a warm smile and a hug/kiss on the cheek.She really is like your mum/sister and bestie all rolled into one :)) Not overwhelmingly so,but it's a nice touch and it calms the nerves somewhat. I paid 50 euro a night(about £38) and this is for up to two people,so you are getting a lovely apartment for a massive discount. I did try finding cheaper,but you won't for what you get! Everything is there for your stay,from the hairdryer,down to the cotton buds..A self contained home from home {H} Do you know what,my experience was amazing(sounding cheesy again {H} )my bruising was minimal,my scar is healing great,so far so good, and I am happy :)) I am going to put some before and after pics on,when my swelling(which is going rapidly,maybe I am just lucky :dontknow: )has gone and you can see for yourself. Thanks for reading and good luck in your own journey xxxxx Juliette

Still got the tube/mass/scar

Hi

I am now nearly five months post op and I have still got the hard painful mass..Which I now know will have to be surgically removed! Can I say this? But thank you Zuzzane Cerna, for NEGLECTING me!
I cannot find a good surgeon who wants to remove the lump and from a any surgeons professional point of view,it's not 'that' bad. I was told that I had had some serious bleeding which was not taken care of. I just feel so depressed and would like to know how much it would cost to be removed? I am from the UK.

The surgeon was great and then I had complecations!

This surgeon is NOT who she portrays to be..She has left my body deformed and refuses to acknowledge the fact that I needed post op care..She is very cuddly and warm,but under all this persona,is not the warm human being she makes out. I had a simple seroma,which she left and it became a hematoma mass,very hard and painful.

No Pre Op Care..Treated Awfully,like Joke.

I had potential life threatening bleeding and have received no after care!

I am now receiving 'joke' emails from her nurse/secretary asking me to Skype her,which when I do,she 'seems' to have blocked me..This was after I told her I would complain to the GMC where she is supposedly registered in principle. In fact she is NOT registered! I am now going in touch with a solicitor,who takes on 'botched' overseas cosmetic surgery cases.
