"After investigating a number of overseas medical options I found that Euromedical Tours, and Zahid in particular, were interested in helping me get the procedures that I needed at a reasonable cost and in a safe environment. Zahid arranged a number of consultations, some via the telephone/email, with different surgeons and was able to get the information I required to make an informed decision.
I travelled to Lahore on the same flight as my surgeon Dr. Moazzam's, who kindly assisted me at the airport to ensure that I got through immigration/customs and found my transfer to the hotel without delay.
Dr Moazzam undertook the 10 hour operation the day after my arrival and I was in the hospital for 5 days. The doctor visited me every day, and I also had visited from his wife Maryam and unexpectedly Zahid.
I found the hospital (Ammar Medical Complex) very clean, the service from all the staff, other doctors nurses, their assistants and cleaners were very professional but friendly and caring. The hospital administrator visited regularly and ensured that the service I was receiving was top class. I had a choice of food, mainly brought in from external restaurants.
I was impressed that I was not in pain, although a bit uncomfortable, following the multiple operations.
My 9 day recuperation at the hotel when well although due to the multiple operations I was not fit enough to do much sightseeing, I was escorted around Lahore shops and had supper with Maryam. Dr Moazzam gave me a whistlestop tour of Lahore, its fort and mosque. If I required anything that the hotel did not stock the staff were willing to do shopping for me as well as organise pizza deliveries and cheap phone cards. The receptionist was a great help and was the conduit between myself and the doctor, and helped me with my dressings when I had difficulty with them.
On my return from Lahore I had had occasion to attend my local hospital on another issue and the NHS consultant has complimented the work at has been carried out by Dr Moazzam, as have my GP and surgery nurse who have had to remove some of the remaining stitches.
Thank you Dr Moazzam for your skill, sense of humour and kindness."

My daughter and myself decided to go to Calicut India because its so much cheaper and we like India, Zahid made all the arrangements, we travelled to London to see are surgeon Dr Kumar who is really nice ,that was September we made arrangements for beginning of December. We were met by Tom at the airport he was very nice and helpful took straight to the hospital (baby memorial) our room was very nice, I had a Abdominoplasty my daughter had a breast enlargement , we spent 3 days post op ward ,the nurses are lovely, I can honestly say i had NO pain from start to finish. We only had a short stay because my other daughter was due to give birth, Tom took us to the airport we were taking straight through no queuing. We are both very happy with the outcome.

Hi Zahid, Just wanted to write and say I am really pleased with the surgery results. Please thank Dr Tibrewala - he's brilliant!

I had several quotations for treatment abroad, but Euromedical was the only one that was able to organise everything I wanted in a short space of time. They were very efficient in processing my documents, including the visa, air ticket etc. I am overall very happy with the treatment I received, and although I had not visited Pakistan before, it turned out to be a good choice for my surgery. Transfers and visits to hospital were all arranged for me, and the hotel accommodation was very suitable. My family in the UK were kept informed with phone calls, and in general I found the medical and care staff to be kind and helpful.
Although it was a long way to travel for surgery, I believe in the end there may be some advantage to being in a completely new place, away from the responsibilities from everyday life. The outcome of treatment appears to be good, but at the time of writing it is too soon to see the final result, because I have only just returned home...

It is now just over 8 weeks since I had my surgery (tummy tuck, breast lift and reduction and inner thigh lift), done by Mr Kumar in Calicut in Kerala and I have to say that I am very pleased with the results although I obviously still have some way to go. The staff were just lovely and a special mention goes to Babita and Smitha in Kerala and Zahid who runs the UK end, who just couldn't do enough for me and my daughter who accompanied me. We were met at the airport and taken straight to the hospital, where I was immediately taken to X-ray and then had some blood tests done. We were then taken up to our room on the 9th floor which had its own en suite and little kitchen facilities. My op went smoothly and I was under the knife for 9 1/2 hours and was then taken to ICU where I spent the next 3 days under constant care. Then back up to my room for a bit more recovery. Unfortunately things didn't go quite to plan and I had to spend the whole of my time in India in the hospital due to the drains that I had attached, but the care I was given was second to none. The only drawback I would say was that sometimes there was a bit of a language barrier but with help that was soon overcome. I have nothing but praise for Mr Kumar and his team and if I was planning to have anything else done I would have no hesitation in going to see him again.

Miss T. C, Preston
I had surgery in Lahore in January this year. I had my consultation in Preston with Dr Moazzam and knew straight away that he was a true professional. I trusted him completely.
We were met at the airport and transferred to our hotel. The hotel was lovely and the staff were so friendly and helpful.
The surgery went exactly as planned and I transferred back to the hotel on the 5th day., where Dr Moazzam and his wife continued to visit daily.
On the day before we were due to fly home the hotel organised a driver for us, who took us on a tour of Lahore.
I am now fully recovered and delighted with the results of my surgery. I own a beauty salon and many of my clients have followed my progress and are considering surgery themselves. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Moazzam.
Miss Sofia P Nazeer, West Yorks
I had been thinking of cosmetic treatment for nearly two years and Euromedical Tours were very patient with me, which inspired a lot of confidence as I was not being pushed into making a decision.
Eventually, I met the surgeon from Lahore in London and discuss all of my treatment requirements. I found enough confidence in the consultation to join the surgeon on his flight back to Pakistan for the treatment. I was fortunate to have another young lady travel with me for treatment as well, so that gave me the companionship and the comfort of knowing I had someone I could relate to.
I had a breast uplift with implants, liposuction to my abdomen and a tummy tuck as well as liposuction to the thighs and back. I saved an absolute fortune having the treatment in Lahore and I am thrilled with my results. I couldn’t have asked for better and am really pleased with my decision to go abroad for treatment.
I am available for anyone to contact me if they wish to discuss any aspect of treatment in Lahore with Mr. Tarar.
Mrs. Hanaa Mew, Southampton
I am really pleased with my new body and all my family including my husband, who was against surgery, he noticed the difference in me.
I had both breast reduction and tummy tuck at the same time under Mr. Krishna Kumar on 2nd June 2008. All healed well and I am happy with myself and the result, mainly raised my confidence and I lost nearly a stone in weight and can now fit comfortably in clothes one size smaller.
The most important thing was the whole experience!
Ms. Catherine Stuart, Surrey
Whilst in Pakistan I never felt like just another patient and felt well looked after and cared by the Doctor and all the staff. I feel lucky to have met the lovely Maryam who was so kind and hospitable and I genuinely enjoyed her company. She is a very warm and interesting lady and I felt she went out of her way to make myself and other patients feel welcome and it was much appreciated.
I went to Pakistan hoping the whole thing would be over with quickly and expected to spend 9 days shut away from the world. Instead I found that I really enjoyed myself after my surgery and a few days rest and have come back with very fond memories of Pakistan and its people.
Should any patients want to speak to anyone prior to booking I would be happy to provide you and the Doctor with a testimonial.
Once again, many thanks. I struggled with the thought of spending so much money on vanity when I booked my treatments and was also concerned about going to Pakistan for such a major operation however really cannot believe the results and how different it has made me feel. I am very happy!
Ms. CR, Hampshire
I chose to have cosmetic surgery overseas mainly for financial reasons. I could not have had anything like the amount of surgery I wanted carried out in the U.K. It also provided the opportunity to visit an exotic part of the world.
Euromedical Tours came up with India and Pakistan as locations. Many surgeons in Britain come from these countries. I felt a sense of security, as a result.
The whole process was very simple; I was given a list of what would happen when at my consultation in London. I was in constant contact with Zahid who replied to my queries, no matter how small, very promptly.
For my Consultation in London, the doctors and organizers waited for me as they knew I was travelling by train after work. The consultation was very relaxed and the surgeon was honest about what was possible and what was not. He offered advice about a procedure on my nose which I had never considered before. I am really pleased that I had this particular procedure carried out. There was no pressure on me at all and the emphasis was very much on what I had in mind as the end result.
The Consultant Surgeon and his wife, also a doctor, treated me with the greatest respect and care. I felt like I was the only client!! They are very good at keeping you relaxed no matter how busy they are. They are people you can never forget. Very professional, interesting and lively hosts!
I am delighted with my new appearance which sounds a bit vain!!I also had some dental crowns fitted which are a bit uncomfortable but this is being dealt with here in the UK.
The hospital was very clean and the nurses always came promptly when I needed them. I was offered any food I liked. The room was large and had comfortable chairs and a television. The nurses were all very young and sweet-natured. Their English was good enough for us to have a joke. One nurse was patient enough to walk round and round the room with me because general anaesthetic always makes me restless the following day!
There was always a lift in the surgeon’s or dental consultant’s private car to and from the medical centre or hospital. The hotel arranged taxis for me to go shopping and the taxis to and from the airport were pre-arranged. The hotel was very grand and I was treated a bit like a celebrity. I was told I looked good even when my face was swollen like a hamster’s!!!
It was very hard to imagine how everything would be prior to the visit. I was apprehensive the day before. I was introduced to other clients and put at ease as soon as I arrived. I have some excellent memories of the whole adventure. I would say the holiday and the treatment and the final results have surpassed my expectations.
Euromedical Tours are very professional and they take your surgery as being as individual as you are. The results are great and it is all at an incredible price. You are not forgotten or just expected to “get on with it” even after you have arrived home. I have had surgery in South Africa. I was pleased with the results but once it was all over, they did not reply to any of my e-mails when I was enquiring about further surgery. Also during the whole business, it was very hard to get answers to questions. I had the feeling that I was just one client amongst many. I felt more relaxed and cared for in Pakistan and the people have impeccable manners.
Yes, I would certainly recommend Euromedical Tours to anyone considering surgery.
Mrs. Jennifer Houghton, Bradford
What can I say? Forget all the preconceived ideas of Pakistan….
Firstly, I should apologise to Zahid for all the thousands of questions, the demands on his time and all the hoops I made him jump through prior to making my decision to go to Pakistan for my cosmetic surgery.. The man is a saint! He never once appeared agitated or exasperated by my pestering. Thank you so much Zahid.
From the moment I stepped on the plane at Manchester my experience began.
Courteous cabin crew…..……. Offered drinks before take off!! The service was great throughout.
I was met at the airport as promised and taken to the Hotel, which again exceeded my expectations.
Once settled I was called to welcome me to the country and to see if there was anything I needed.
I tried really hard but couldn’t think of a thing!!!
I was left to rest for the day and again collected and driven to Dr Tarar’s clinic that evening for the pre-op checks. Now, I thought, I’ll be able to find fault with something……. After all I am a nursing sister with a formidable reputation to keep!
Again everything was perfect. I was treated with respect at all times and Dr. Tarar was fabulous. I knew immediately I had made the right choice and had complete confidence in him and his staff.
I was driven back to the Hotel and can honestly say I had the best night’s sleep that I could have wished for! Not a care in the world…
Collected again and taken to the Hospital……….
WOW! … A huge room, spotlessly clean, complete with en-suite bathroom dressing area and best of all .. the fridge!
The care and consideration of the nurses is something we sadly have lost over here….it was an absolute joy for me to see the dedication and attention to detail that I received from all the medical and nursing staff.
My procedures went well; both the extensive face/brow/neck/chin lift and upper arm lift were relatively pain free. (The odd twinge now and then but nothing to complain about.)
What did I expect from one of the leading Plastic Surgeons?
I hoped for and got the absolute best!!
After a few days it was back to the hotel for more pampering! Room service is great and was probably over used by me but who cares I was having a good time! And the costs were so reasonable it did not concern me.
Even at this stage I was not ignored! I received a call every day from Dr. Tarar to check how I was feeling.
Offers of sightseeing and gentle tourist activities were accepted and greatly enjoyed.
I believe there is a plan to put together a more structured programme of events to enjoy… the cost will of course be reasonable.
So my advice would be to take advantage of it and squeeze in as much as you can. After all, you may never have the opportunity to see any of it again. The culture is so rich and diverse. Fascinating stuff!!
Shopping is an experience! The fabrics and designs are fantastic and the jewellery is gorgeous! I could ramble on for hours…..suffice to say I loved every minute!
The care from Dr. Tarar continued until I left the country…. And after! He has kindly emailed me the photos that you can see.
The final word is for Zahid….
I am happy for anyone to call me if they wish to speak to someone who has already made the trip……… It is the least I can do!
Oh! Yes… going back again in a month or so for my tummy tuck, thigh lift and breast augmentation… watch this space!!I know all will be well, I know I will be treated fantastically and I know the result will be the best!
I hope this has helped someone out there make the decision to choose Euromedical Tours. I know I will be recommending them to all my friends. Congratulations and well done on providing a first class service!
