Это был замечательный опыт. Проводили операцию по увеличению груди в Forme Clinic. Это не клиника - это отель 5 звезд ))) Чувствуешь себя, как дома) Замечательный персонал, очень заботливые и что самое главное для меня - нет ощущения, что ты в больнице. Доктор Мертан, был очень внимателен к моим пожеланиям и выполнил все именно так, как мне было необходимо. Результат превзошел все ожидания, я осталась очень довольна. Всем советую эту клинику и доктора.
