I got my nose done a few months back now and all I can say is how amazed I am at the difference it's made. I cannot fault one thing about Sthetix, the service and quality is outstanding. Mr khan who performed my operation was amazing and very professional, full of reassurance too. The operation went very well and the aftercare was great. All the staff at Sthetix are very kind and helpful. Would highly recommended this company to anyone. Very pleased.
Apologies for the long review but I wanted to give a full account of how excellent the service is from the entire Sthetix team.
I had always wanted a 'boob job' as I felt my chest was out of proportion to the rest of my body.
After the birth of my daughter and breast feeding - my breasts ended up extremely 'empty' and I had zero volume. I had my wedding coming up and being only 27 - I decided to take the plunge and get something done so I could look like the bride I wanted to - wearing a shapely wedding dress.
I obviously researched clinics who did the procedure and came across Sthetix - I was surprised to find a clinic so close to me in Liverpool - I read the reviews on here and saw how qualified Dr Alvi was so I decided to give them a go. Dr Alvi later explained that the clinic does not advertise as they get all their patients from recommendations! Something I now definitely understand!
From the very first phone call to the team I felt totally supported and in control of the process. There was no pressure, no hard sell and at every stage I was given lots of time to consider my options, even additional appointments were available if required.
At my first appointment Dr Alvi was extremely professional and honest about what the results for me could be. He let me try on lots of sizers and even had a little sense of humour about how big was toooo big for me!
We chose two sizes as I have asymmetry and I was told the next stage was a second appointment where measurements would be taken and more questions could be raised. I felt under no pressure to make this second appointment and all the time the team put in to supporting me was done on a no-obligation basis.
I ended up waiting a few months for my second appointment as I wanted to make sure the time was right for work and home life before moving ahead. At my second appointment I confirmed the sizes I wanted and paid the deposit - it all felt really empowering and I felt like I was really well informed. Many 'high street' clinics and chains only let you see a surgeon after you have had an appointment with a nurse and have committed to surgery however at Sthetix you get to meet the person performing the operation from the word go.
A few weeks passed in between paying and having my op (all this was at my request as I needed time to sort childcare and work) during this time I emailed the girls at Sthetix various questions - sometimes at weekends - they always came back to me within the hour! Even on a Sunday! Their support and customer service was excellent - they even let me come in and try on the sizers again just a few days before my op! Nothing is too much to ask of these girls and that really helps when making such a big decision.
On the day of my Op I attended Liverpool Women's hospital and met all the team who would be looking after me - some of whom I had met previously at my preOp appointment.
Dr Alvi came to see me, chatted through the process again and marked me up. I honestly felt so at ease in his hands - I had never had a general anaesthetic before so this was my biggest concern but honestly - I needn't have worried! It was all very relaxing!
As I had some asymmetry in size I had left it up to Dr Alvi to decide whether one breast would be 420cc or 390cc to correct the difference. He took his time in the surgery and used sizers plus his judgement to ensure I got an excellent result. The surgery took a little longer because of this but I'm so glad I had a surgeon who was prepared to take the time and care needed to achieve the best outcome for me personally.
When I woke up after my surgery I was groggy but didn't feel much pain and honestly I remained that way - some people struggle terribly after under the muscle surgery but I really didn't find it a problem and I firmly believe this was down to Dr Alvi's skill as a surgeon.
Dr Alvi came to see my partner whilst I was in recovery and explained in detail how well the operation had gone - little bleeding which meant excellent recovery process. It was great of him to spend time updating and reassuring my partner who was waiting for me to come round.
Obviously I followed my post op advice to rest, wear the compression band for 6 weeks and I did find it tricky to get up in the morning without using my arms to push-up but really other than that I was up and about as normal within 2 days. I listened to my body and didn't do too much so by the time of my 6 week check up my new boobs felt like old news! They settled so well and so quickly!
I really wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr Alvi to anyone considering surgery, his team and his expertise are outstanding. Thank you!
I cannot recommend them highly enough. The staff are friendly, welcoming & really made me feel at ease. I had seen another surgeon prior to going to Sthetix. However, I knew almost immediately during my 1st consultation that I would be booking my procedure with Sthetix & Mr Alvi as my surgeon. What an amazing man. So friendly but very honest about the risks & complications associated with breast augmentation. He was very thorough & answered all my questions. I wasn't rushed & there was no pressure to book surgery. However, I was so impressed by his professionalism & his ability to make me feel at ease that I booked my surgery that day with excitement & a touch of nerves.
My surgery day passed without any complications. I experienced no pain just a little discomfort. My surgery took place at Renacres Hospital & the staff there were amazing too. I was looked after every step of the way. Nothing was too much trouble. The day after my surgery I saw Mr Alvi before I was discharged & he was pleased with how the procedure had gone. Later that day I received a courtesy call from the clinic to check that all was well.
Unfortunately, around 6 weeks post op I sufferered a minor complication. I saw Mr Alvi at the hospital and he advised that I would need to have a further very minor operation to secure internal stitches in my right breast. He reassured me that all would be well & it was nothing to worry about. I was booked in & once again the surgery took place without any problems. I would like to add that this complication was my own fault as I had not rested well enough immediately after my surgery.
6 weeks after my 2nd op, I returned to see Mr Alvi at the clinic & everything was as it should be with no further appointments or surgery required. He was very pleased with the results. I am due to see Mr Alvi in 12 months time for my annual check up.
Despite the minor complication I could not be happier with my choice of Sthetix Clinic, Mr Alvi as my surgeon & the results I've had following my surgery.
If you are considering breast augmentation, then you definitely should contact Sthetix Clinic & Mr Alvi is just the best.
My experience was more than i could ever ask for. my results from my surgery were truly amazing more than i could have imagined. The experience was frightening for me as it was the first time id ever had surgery, however the my surgeon (Mr Alvi) and his staff completely put me at ease and made the experience as comfortable and successful as possible and as a result, i cannot thank them enough for what they have done for me.
From the first point of contact on the telephone to meeting the consultant i cant praise them all enough. All the staff were friendly, welcoming and immediately put me at ease. I was reassured and made to feel important. I couldn't of chose a better surgeon , Mr Alvi not only gave me all the knowledge i need to know but he was genuine, kind, he never pushed me into anything and that made me trust him immediately. I am so happy with my results, i would and have recommend Mr Alvi to anyone looking to have surgery. Thank you all at Sthetix !!!
I had a full Tummy Tuck & liposuction with Sthetix on 6th August 2013. I am 7 weeks post op today and I have to say I am so happy and glad I chose to have my surgery with Sthetix. I had been to a few clinics and spoke to surgeons but wasn't happy and I came across Sthetix by chance researching reviews on the Internet. I was impressed with all the reviews so i decided to go for a consultation. I spoke to a Lovely lady called Karen who was very helpful. I was booked in to see surgeon Mr Alvi . Mr Alvi is so lovely warm and very friendly and made me feel at ease. We discussed in length all about my procedure. Mr Alvi is very experienced and talented. He gained my trust right from the start. Which I think is very important when choosing to have cosmetic surgery. I was looked after so well by Mr Alvi & all his staff. I had my surgery at The Catherine Suite in The women's Hospital in Liverpool and I was looked after very well by all the nurses there too. I am so happy and pleased with my new tummy I just can not explain :) Mr Alvi has done an excellent job he has just totally changed my life :) Also Mr alvi told me he stood by my bed holding my hand for an hour when I was in recovery. Thank you Mr Alvi :) Although I don't know what I was talking about because I was a lil out of it from the anesthetic ooops, but it was all good. Just how lovely is that. Just shows how caring he is. I was also told that I could ring them anytime with questions or anything which is also good as you don't feel like after you have surgery & then they don't care it's the opposite at Sthetix you can ring anytime. I can not stop looking at my new shape in the mirror ooh and a whole new wardrobe coming up :) Shop until I drop :) If your sitting here now reading these reviews like I did, I would very highly recommend Mr Alvi & all his Staff at sthetix to anybody thinking about having some surgery. I am very very happy with the results from my surgery and the care I have received from everyone at Sthetix & The Catherine Suite. A VERY BIG Thank you so much again you have totally changed my life. :)
From the first point of contact on the telephone I was made to feel completely at ease and understood. There was a real kindness from the staff with vast knowledge of procedures. I was reassured and made to feel important but never pushed into anything.. My experience of the surgeon himself couldn't have been any better, he was obviously extremely talented in what he does but had a gentle and genuine way about him that just made me trust him immediately. My surgery went extremely well and I was always made to feel comfortable, communicated with, and cared for in a very individual way. I would, and have recommended Sthetix to anyone looking for top drawer treatment with an extremely personable approach.
I am realy pleased I choose sthetix for my sergory. It was a welcoming and relaxing envioroment, as I was quite nervous before hand, but after my first consultation I was realy at ease. I was over welmbed with tha care & after care from my sergon & staff. An would never think twice too go back for other treatments and to recommend sthetix to other people. Realy am made up with my results, thankyou x
Had 3 consultations before I had surgery which I thought was very good. Mr alvi is very polite and made me feel very comfortable. I am pleased with the surgery. The staff at the catharine suite made my stay overnight comfortable and could not fault any part of that either. I would definitley recommend anybody to go to sthetix! I would not recommend anybody to go to new birkdale clinic in crosby as they just take your money and when things go wrong they are not interested. Their aftercare is very poor!!
I had wanted to have a breast enhancement since having my son 7 years ago. I was understandably nervous but all the staff really put me at ease.
I did visit a few clinics for consultations prior to visiting sthetix but knew straight away that this was the right clinic. All the staff were so friendly and forthcoming with sharing their experiences with me. Mr Alvi, the consultant, explained everything fully and answered all the questions I had. He then took some "before" photos and I was left to think it over for a few weeks. Unlike other clinics I was not pressured into making a decision.
On my 2nd visit Mr Alvi talked through the procedure with me again and answered my further questions. I was given a choice of 2 hospitals and chose to have the procedure in Renacres.
On the day of the operation Mr Alvi met me again and once again talked me thorough and asked if I had any questions. I would highly recommend Renacres as your chosen hospital, the staff were lovely and very attentive and I felt really looked after.
Post op sthetix called me every day to ask how I was and how my pain was. If I am completely honest the pain was not as bad as I thought it would be and upon sharing my experience with others who have had the same operation through a different clinic, they were surprised at how quickly I healed compared to them. I had a follow up appointment 2 weeks post op and another 6 weeks post op- just for Mr Alvi to check me over and take my "after" photos.
Overall I would highly recommend this clinic and don't have any negative experience at all. I have finally got the bust I have always wanted and feel that I have any problems or queries- then I have a team willing to offer support just a phone call away.
I had an excellent service throughout, the whole procedure was explained to me thoroughly both positive and negative , staff were very friendly and had excellent communication skills my surgeon was excellent Mr Alvi, would recommend anyone who is thinking of breast surgery to instruct this surgeon for the job, he was the best in my opinion. Thankyou everyone at Sthetix you were a pleasure to meet. Regards Melanie.
I had a small growth removed from beneath my eye, but very close to it. Mr Alvi explained carefully to me what would happen and indeed he was entirely accurate. I felt completely confident in his opinion and the suggested procedure He was expert in his actions and his support team were charming and set me at my ease. I f I had need to return I would do so with complete confidence and recommend this practice without hesitation to any one who requires expert surgery.
I had a BA with Dr Alvi in April this year and I really cannot fault the service, from my initial consultation, to the hospital stay and procedure, and the aftercare. My reasons for a BA were not to have huge tits and look like a page 3 girl. I just wanted to look and feel like a woman!! It was very important to me that they would look natural and in proportion with my body, and My Alvi understood this perfectly. He was patient and very understanding, and was happy to go through all the questions I had (I had taken quite a list with me!) plus also look at the photos I took in with me of BA results I liked and ones that I didn't. The girls at sthetix are all brilliant too, so friendly and full of advice. I lost count of how many times i emailed/phoned with basic questions, and about 5 days before my surgery I had a total panic that I had chosen the wrong size but the girls let me in and stayed with me while I tried out the size I had chosen again, plus some other sizes. They were really patient, and we had a good giggle, and i went away fully reassured and excited about the op. I can also highly recommend the hospital too. Lovely room with TV and en-suite etc (I have stayed in worse hotels) and the nurses were great. After the op they couldn't do enough for me, the food was lovely and they really made every effort to make sure I was comfortable. I saw Dr Alvi before my op, and after too, and I had several calls from the girls at Sthetix to check I was doing ok, All in all, for me the important thing was that I was getting a BA, which is a serious operation, and not a 'boob job', and I chose Sthetix for this reason. Dr Alvi has a great sense of humour and really understood what the operation meant to me and I really felt like I was treated as an individual, with all the time given to me that I needed. If I could choose all over again I would still choose Sthetix, without hesitation!
Very aware that my face had ‘peaked’ somewhere in my very distant past, I was open to suggestions for rejuvenation (if at all possible). My friend highly recommended Sthetix Clinic in Liverpool and I booked a free consultation with Mr Alvi. Apparently my face isn’t yet desperate enough to warrant a surgical face lift and I was subsequently offered Botox and Fillers.
My idea of what botox and fillers look like put me off the idea initially (I immediately envisaged a frozen face and trout pout) so I wasn’t sure about the treatment. The mere thought of needles into my face was not pleasant but after much discussion and me asking a lot of questions (and Mr Alvi answering them all with great knowledge and detail), I put my trust in him and went with his advice. I was given lots of information and all the potential risks were thoroughly explained to me.
I was very nervous about having this done but to my amazement, the experience was far from unpleasant. The botox was a doddle (I didn’t even notice that he had started!). The fillers to my cheeks took a bit longer but genuinely didn’t cause anything more than minor discomfort. Mr Alvi and his assistant Karen worked together to keep me calm and to ensure that the whole procedure was as painless as possible. I felt totally at ease throughout and even confess to being able to enjoy a few laughs with them during the procedure!
As an amusing snippet, I have to tell you this…. As Mr Alvi is a well-renowned Plastic Surgeon who specialises in breast surgery, he has a vast quantity of implants in his treatment room. When I spotted them, I asked if I could use one as a “stress ball” during my treatment because I was so nervous. He laughed and gave me one to use. By the end of the treatment, I realised that I hadn’t even used the implant as the treatment wasn’t anywhere near as stressful or painful as I had imagined, so I was just lying there holding an implant throughout!
The effect of the fillers was immediate and my children noticed something different as soon as I got home. My 13 year old son asked “what have you done to your face?” and when I told him it was botox and fillers, he said “Mum, it’s amazing! You look 10 years younger!”. Feeling quite insulted, I continued in the direction of the kitchen to make tea…!
The Botox took control of my wrinkled forehead after about a week. In the past few weeks friends have been telling me how ‘well’ I am looking and I’ve had to confess to the divine intervention of the fabulous Mr Alvi!!
One of the ladies at Sthetix phoned me after a few days to make sure everything was ok and that I was happy with the results. I was happy to tell her that I had no bruising whatsoever and that I was simply delighted with the results. I have booked in for my next stage of treatment and I can’t wait!
I’ve just been invited to write this review and before writing it, I read some of the other reviews people have put on here. I have to say, my experience agrees wholeheartedly with what others have to say.
If you think you’re looking ‘tired’ and you’re looking for help, look no further! Mr Alvi and his wonderful team at Sthetix are the people to see!
I had been contemplating having cosmetic work to boost my confidence. Being apprehensive about undergoing surgery I mentioned it to a friend who recommended 'Sthetix cosmetic clinic' I have to say meeting Mr Alvi was truly 'uplifting', he was reassuring, professional and so easy to relate to. I felt no pressure to undertake any procedure, I was unsure about. Throughout he has mentored my on going treatment in the most competent and friendly manner. Going to 'Sthetix' was one of the best decisions I have made. Today I feel much more confident and would certainly recommended a consultation with Mr Alvi to anyone seeking a cosmetic procedure. Jacki kaye.
I was very pleased with Sthetix, the staff were great and my primary consultant appeared to be genuinely interested in my problem and the best way the help me. I was able to avoid big surgery and I am very satisfied with the result. I would recommend Sthetix and would use it again myself.
I Would recommend mr Alvi at Sthetix for breast uplift,he put me a ease talking me through the procedure, I left the hospital after 1 overnight stay .After 6 weeks my scars are fading If you are unhappy with your breasts go for it!
From Start to finish they made me feel at ease nothing was too much of a problem even questions you may feel silly asking! Dr Alvi was great even after the procedure when I didn’t feel too well, I got an appointment within a day or so that fitted in with me and he checked me out and sorted any issues I had. I love my new boobs and I would have no hesitation in recommending Sthetix as they are professional and friendly!
