An interview with Dr. Er

What is your experience with international patients?
I am dealing with international patients for almost 10 years. Even though I have treated patients from different parts of the world, most of them are from European countries. Especially people who have realistic expectations. And I believe aesthetic surgery is successful only with patients with realistic expectations.

Why do you think international patients come to you?
First, they come because they can get the best operations in safe conditions and for more reasonable prices than in their countries. And many times they come through references from our other patients.

Can you tell us about a memorable treatment with which you helped to improve a patient's life?
I had a 19 yo male patient. His father took him to me because he had a very bad nose and he did not even want to leave his home. He even did not go to university. After his operation, he came to me with his girlfriend. He was so happy and social. His life changed so much.


Dr. Er earned his medical degree from Gülhane Military Medical Academy in 1992. From there, he furthered his medical training at the military academy and completed his residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery in 2001. He completed courses in facial aesthetic surgery and liposuction in New York and California, respectively, and was also a post-doc fellow at Baylor College of Medicine in Texas. With over 20 years in the specialty of plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Er has practiced at Gülhane Military Medical Academy, Kasimpasa Navy Hospital, Transmed Aesthetic and Hair Surgery Clinic, Memorial Hospital İstanbul, Anatomica Hospital, Baylor College of Medicine in Texas, in private practice, and now at Istanbul Aesthetic Center.

He’s won numerous prizes and research grants for his work and is a member of several organisations including the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) and the American Society of Liposuction Surgery (ASLS). Plastic Reconstructive Surgery journal and the Journal of Society of Turkish Plastic Surgeons are just some of the publications where his research has been featured and Dr. Er has presented papers nationally - at the National Congress of Turkish Society of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgeons - and internationally - at the American College of Surgeons Annual Clinical Congress and the Congress of the European Federation of Societies for Microsurgery. Dr. Er’s top performed treatments were breast augmentation and rhinoplasty and he also has special interests in liposuction and body contouring, other facial aesthetic surgery as well as gene therapy and tissue engineering in plastic surgery.
