What is your experience with international patients?
95% of patients in the last 6 years of my experience were all from abroad. Now it is at about 75%. So I mainly work with international patients and have for some time now. I enjoy working with people from all around the world.
What do you love about your job?
Generally, I love everything about my job. I love all of what I do from helping patients decide on which procedure suits them best in consultations to actual surgery to holding conferences and live surgeries with other experts in this field.
Why do you think international patients come to you?
I think there are two reasons why international patients come to me for their plastic surgery. The price with me is very affordable and at the same time, I provide a very high quality of my job and therefore their results.
Can you tell us about a memorable treatment with which you helped to improve a patient's life?
Patients come to me for different kinds of surgeries. When patients are very happy with the results of their surgeries, this leaves me with a high satisfaction from my job and keeps me inspired to continuously learn and grow in my field.
