An interview with Prof. Dr. Bekir Atik
What is your experience with international patients?
I have 23 years of experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery. I have operated on lots of international patients from all over the world. Numbers are increasing day by day.
What do you love about your job?
I am in love with my job. I try to be quite meticulous in every single thing that I do. As a plastic or cosmetic surgeon, you have the power to make somebody feel better about themselves. We touch the patient’s lives. We help them obtain their dream look and they become a new person. Each of them becomes a part of our family after the surgery.
Why do you think international patients come to you?
What do patients look for when choosing a surgeon is that surgeon’s experience and a personal recommendation from a doctor or friend, are the most influential factors. Before they come to me, they search me online and on social media. What they see is that I have experience in my field and there are lots of happy patients.
What procedures do patients have most often?
Breast augmentation, Breast lift, Breast reduction, Tummy tuck, Liposuction, Vaginoplasty, and Facelift.
What is the patient case you are most fond of?
I have experience in both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. I have performed more than 2000 cases in these fields.
What specialties in the clinic are the most demanded?
In the clinic, we don’t operate. Surgeries are performed at JCI accredited hospitals. Most demanded procedures in the clinic are botox injection and filler.
