I had a little peek at my tummy tuck scar and although still swollen my scar is perfect, so neat I couldn’t believe it, I was worried before but now I’m not so much for my second op (breast Augmentation) just excited!
MRS B FROM BIRMINGHAM
Speaking for myself on my experience and outcome of both my surgeries I can truthfully and honestly say I’m very satisfied with the results of my tummy tuck and breast uplift and all that went with it.
I’m very happy to say I’m one sexy mumma now and I’ve changed in so many ways not only physically but mentally there is always gonna be doubts but I’m in no doubt with my decision and thanks to surgery I’m one happy bunny……:0)
Mrs D – Norfolk
The hospital us amazing and truly care about your well being.
If your not fit for surgery then they will not operate on you. No matter how much money you have.
I had my tummy done the first week, with 7 days to recover and then I had my boobies done. I’m so happy I’m thinking of getting my arms done next.
I trust Angela Secret-Surgery with my health and would all ways seek advise and support from Angela for any future ops…..
Mrs N from Surrey
Today I woke up to a wonderful email from a special lady that is in Poland at present. She had her procedure a week ago it said:
I can’t knock the service Secret Surgery has provided. I feel like a completely new person, and I mean that honestly! Angela you have made it so easy for me to do and I sincerely thank you for your help, guidance and support. I will defo be doing extra bits and you will b top of my contact list!
There is nothing cheap about making life changing decision about yourself, you can’t put a price on happiness, but you can put a value on it, and the value for money you get from Surgery in Poland with Secret Surgery is absolutely outstanding.
The hospital where you have surgery is a modern day version of the Ritz but cleaner! I hate hospitals and I didn’t even know I was in a hospital as it looked like a very smartly run hotel. I was also privileged enough to be able to sit in on a consultation. Dr W and Aga communicated very effective and compassionately. These women are here because they want help and in my line of business it doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside its how you feel on the inside. If you are considering surgery abroad I couldn’t recommend Secret Surgery enough.
The Sun portrayed a completely wrong image for surgery abroad and for some reason report misconceptions in order to sell papers. Surely you would sell more papers if readers were sure in the knowledge they contained the truth, facts and not exaggerated misconceptions or twisted interpretations. The Sun newspaper reporter misrepresented the seriousness of friendships made and professionalism of Secret Surgery and made the whole weekend sound like a cattle show.
This is my story… the truth!
I arrived in Poland and it was magical. It had been snowing for a few days previously and as we headed off to the Christmas market I bumped into a patient that had surgery 1 day earlier. She was enjoying the mulled wine at the Christmas market with another patient. You wouldn’t believe she had just had surgery and was really enjoying her time. Unfortunately she couldn’t have another surgery she had booked for as she had arrived in Poland suffering from Laryngitis. Dr W said he didn’t want to perform the surgery due to risk of cross infection and wouldn’t take the responsibility if there was an issue with her airway while under general anesthetic. Where else would you get turned away from a private medical company? The fact that the surgeon was unwilling to take the risk in putting the patient in danger just over a sore throat showed true professionalism. The Secret Surgery Client was more than happy undergoing one non-invasive part of her surgery and only slightly disappointed that she couldn’t have her main surgery done as she had no doubts in rebooking for another time as they insisted her health was paramount.
That evening when we arrived at the restaurant for our meal, I met another lady who had come out of hospital that day. She had a tummy tuck and was well enough to join us for an evening meal. These women were amazing. It proves that you can have surgery and when the after care is second to none problems are few and far between. Whilst at the evening meal, which I must add, was a top notch restaurant with Ritz style food and perfect portion control, I began to speak to many other ladies that were there on a personal journey. Face lifts, nose jobs, lipo, gastric bypasses, tummy tucks, reconstructive surgery and they all want to look good, sometimes after a long emotional or physical battle. And why not? If its affordable then you can’t put a price on true happiness and in a safe environment like the EMC Hospital in Poland to me it’s a no brainer. So to celebrate the 2nd year of Secret Surgery, these ladies are an inspiration and I am in absolute awe of them and hold a credit to these wonderful inspiring ladies.
The weekend was a celebration of how amazing Secret Surgery is. None of us were there for a boozy filled weekend and being signed up for more surgery, these ladies wanted to be there for themselves. There was no sales pitch and there wasn’t even any mention of cost! Out of 30 ladies, 10 ladies had a consultation for future work, unfortunately some of it was corrective surgery from incorrect procedures taken place in the UK and they travelled there to get a consultation as they felt they could trust Secret Surgery more than private UK hospitals.
No one signs up for surgery without careful consideration and a flippant remark about taking less time to choose bathroom tiles is insulting to both the patients and the medical team in Poland.
Yes there is a risk with surgery, but there is a risk with every kind of procedure, whether it is done in the UK or abroad, and I feel that the ladies were manipulated by the Sun and words definitely put into people’s mouths.
Why would you report that a 17 year old had a consultation for a nose job when it’s clearly not true? And why not mention that some of the people on t he VIP trip were there from the NHS and are part of the after care team based in the UK?
I found the whole report irritating and uncalled for, and I want to make my point. I never intend on having surgery as it’s not for me, BUT I would recommend Secret Surgery and Angel Chouaib, her services and her team to everyone thinking about having it done. Infact I already have recommended Secret Surgery to many people.
Changing how you look to make yourself feel better is not a bad thing at all, it will make you happy and will help you save lives. One lady that was due to have a procedure after having her scan in Poland was found to have cancer! This was NOT picked up in the UK. Fortunately she was treated for this and was able to return and to have her surgery after recovery.
Dr W is a wonderful man with a great sense of humor, the photos of him and his team around the hospital can just see what a marvelous man he truly is. He also attended of the evening meals, but didn’t drink and left before the main course came out as he had surgery in the morning and took his responsibility very seriously. I think the Sun reporter again, misinterpreted everyone’s merriment to drink rather than atmosphere and fun.
I am truly amazed at the beautiful people I have meet this weekend and wish you all well, and think we need to rise above the misinterpretation that have been reported in The Sun newspaper. Secret Surgery is amazing, the founder is amazing, her team is amazing and the hospital is amazing.
Good luck to everyone who is having surgery and taking action about how to feel good about themselves, I truly met some wonderful friends this weekend and I can’t wait to do it all again next year.

We’ve got another very special patient story today. Zoe, from Kent, underwent a Tummy Tuck with us at Secret Surgery not long ago, and now she’s going to tell us – and you, our potential patients – all about her experience here.
How did you come across us? “Whilst researching surgeons I found your details on a search engine, without even looking at the Secret Surgery website – and so not knowing it was abroad – I simply called the number provided by the search engine. Over the phone she explained the whole procedure from start to finish in such an open and honest way – I’d spent the best part of the day speaking to receptionists, advisers, answerphones…. and I was still none the wiser.”
So, the phone conversation you had with Angela made you even more set on Secret Surgery? “If she hadn’t used the words ‘Poland’ and ‘Abroad’ I would have probably turned up at her house that night, cash in hand, demanding next-day surgery!”
Ha! So you did further research instead? “I then read reviews and did my research on the surgeon, the hospital and Angela, and there wasn’t a single bad review for any of them… so it was an easy decision to book! Meeting everyone at Persona Clinic and seeing how amazing Angela looked… I could already tell by then that I had made a great decision.”
“I really can’t thank Angela enough. It will make such a huge difference to my future… but you already know about the difference! You truly understand just how much it means. That’s the real beauty of Secret Surgery. Angela – thank you for being with me through this life-changing process. Genuinely helpful, encouraging, supportive and caring – what started as a worrying trip into the unknown soon became an enjoyable and rewarding experience!”
“Many thanks to you and the rest of your team in the UK and Poland – you’re all wonderful!”
We’ve got another happy patient here today to tell us all about her Secret Surgery story. “To say I was sceptical about surgery abroad would be an understatement. I was very much against it and believed that people who went for surgery abroad were sent to filthy ‘back street’ clinics and operated on by unlicensed surgeons.”
What changed your mind? “It soon became clear to me from speaking to Angela in great detail and from research I had done myself that this certainly wasn’t the case when booking with Secret Surgery. If anything, the facilities that Angela books for her patients are very modern, clean and well-equipped with the most advanced medical equipment. The surgeons based at these facilities are also considered some of the most experienced in their fields. With this in mind, I was very confident about booking my gastric wrap (plication) surgery in Prague with Secret Surgery.”
And how was your stay there? “When I arrived at my luxury apartment I was a little disappointed that I did not have some of the items that were specified in the apartment description but with one call to Angela she was on the case and it wasn’t long before a very apologetic member of hotel staff was delivering me a kettle for my soups along with a DVD player and a selection of English films! This was very nice, as I was going to be spending my recovery time in the apartment too.”
That’s great! Did you feel safe before your surgery, then? “Well, the morning of my surgery I had the pleasure of meeting my surgeon, Professor Fried. The surgery brief was very important and he was happy to answer any questions or concerns that we had. He really put us at ease and was friendly and approachable. Following the surgery, he visited all his patients on a daily basis and had a genuine interest in our recovery.”
Did everything go OK? “I experienced a minor complication with my surgery and had a small bleed. I was placed in a priority room next to the nurses’ station and I was checked on every hour for the first 24 hours, post operatively, to have observations done. The pre-op and post-op checks were very thorough, and I felt well looked after throughout my stay in the clinic. I was also contacted frequently by Angela during this time and she kept a close eye on my recovery including speaking to the clinic staff to ensure I was OK.”
Fantastic. Anything else since you arrived home? “Upon returning to the UK following my surgery, I have had at least weekly contact from Angela and Jane, my dietary advisor, to check on my progress and offer advice with any queries or concerns I may have. The service I have experienced through Secret Surgery is first class and I have recommended this service to many other people already, and will continue to do so!”
“I look forward to my next trip abroad with Secret Surgery for the cosmetic surgery I would like when I reach my target weight. Thanks again Angela, you have been a trusted advisor and, more than that, you have become a good friend to me.”
That’s wonderful to hear! We’re always so pleased to read positive stories from our patients, and it makes everything we do that little bit more worthwhile.
For today’s Secret Surgery story, we’ve got Jo here to talk about her face and neck lifts with us. While she enjoyed her experience at Secret Surgery, she wants future patients to know all about the obstacles she faced during her surgery; whenever you undergo any kind of cosmetic surgery, there will be a short recovery time to go through, and it’s important to know what to expect.
How are you feeling today? “I’ve still not recovered full from my surgery last month. I have a wound in front of my right ear that is very slow to heal. Dr. W did warn me that the wound would take longer than the other side due a previous face lift scar which left my skin very thin.”
“I stopped smoking in February, I thought that would be OK and I have not started again. Age probably takes a part in the healing process, too. I can’t get my hair cut or coloured yet, so I’m not feeling the best.”
“Also, to ladies having face or neck surgery, please grow your hair! Dr. W had to shave sections of my hair at the back on both sides where the scars are placed. I now have bristles and small chunks of hair growing back through!” That’s good to know!
How do you feel about your experience as a whole? “I would recommend Secret Surgery, Poland and Dr. W, and the lovely Aga. Regards and thank you Angela, for the chance and experience; I’ll look back on it and smile soon, I’m sure!”
That’s great! If you’re considering cosmetic surgery, remember to make sure you understand the recovery time required after it!
Lisa tells us about her concerns with surgery abroad, which is something we come across quite often here at Secret Surgery. “I was really apprehensive about going and having surgery abroad without meeting the consultant before travelling. Lots of friends had expressed concern about my trust in overseas surgery.”
Were your fears soon allayed? “Having travelled to Poland I have nothing but praise for the way I was treated and the professionalism and kindness that I was shown. The surgeon and hospital were fantastic. I am really pleased with the results, and am hoping to go back at some point in the future.”
Wow, excellent! We often see a big turnaround in our patients’ impressions of surgery abroad after they’ve come to visit us. “I would highly recommend your services to anyone as nothing was too much trouble.”
