Excellent hospital... best doctors, helpful & friendly staff.

Feb 21, 2020

Disclaimer: This review is written by Orthopedic surgeon who owns a hospital...... My mother was admitted here for one day with fever and cough. my friend works there as a pulmonolgist and I wanted my mother to be under his care.. Doctor treatment was excellent. front office and admission procedure were smooth without any hiccups and well organised process except for a longer TAT( turn around time).. the room was not cleaned… properly.. A C was not working, request for a curtain as direct sunlight was falling in the bed was attended partially after 4-5 hours.. the furniture was in dilapidated condition. I requested the nursing staff for tepid sponging 3 times and still they didn't do it.. coming to the billing part.. a simple chem 20 test which costs around 2K was charged 8000. 24 hours admission and only investigation cost was 34000/which will cost 1/3 in best center or any other corporate hospital..I do understand that charges will be little higher in a corporate hospital for the services they provide but charging 4-5 times higher is unethical.. DO NOT EVER GET ADMITTED IN CONTINENTAL HOSPITAL UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET LOOTED IN BROAD DAYLIGHT....

Doctors are good, but billing department will charge you with different room rent especially when they know you are not in state to xcheck everything and need to take your beloved departed home, clearing everything in cash without waiting for insurance. and then they promise you to correct it and 7 months no response or refund.

El trato inmejorable, cercano y familiar. El Dr. Kai es el mejor cirujano que haya podido conocer. Es muy bueno en su trabajo, y lo hace de tal forma que sales como si no hubieras entrado al quirofano. Yo no he tenido apenas molestias. Me hice una mamoplastia y de lo que me dijeron que conllevaba esa operación a lo que yo sentí, hubo un gran abismo.… Gracias al cirujano, el Dr Kai y a todo su equipo. Que forman un equipo increíble. Desde las recepcionistas, que son super simpáticas todas, las enfermeras, las fisioterapeutas, el anestesista, y sin lugar a dudas " MI Dr. Kai". Son todos para mi, los mejores. Recomiendo la clínica Ocean Clínic de Marbella con los ojos cerrados para todas aquellas personas que tengan miedo a la cirugia. No sé qué técnica utilizarán pero sales "Divina" Felicidades a todo el equipo de la clínica Ocean Clínic. Muchas gracias a todos, de corazón.

Thank you Dr. Kay and your team. When it comes to quality you are really dealing with the ‘A’ Team here. The attention to detail is the best I’ve experienced. I love the clean, creative environment at Ocean Clinic. (I am an artist, so I particularly appreciate the walls being adorned with original artworks). The whole team were wonderful and friendly. I highly recommend Ocean Clinic. A big thank you to Dr. Felix, who in my opinion is an artist.

Have always thought that the clinic is one of the best, met Dr Kaye and he is such a great Doctor and nice person. I am working in the the healthcare as CNO and have had many plastic surgery clinics under me. Now I messaged the clinic the other day asking for a product and I got an answer, when I asked about the price, how much of vitamin C it was in the product and if it could be sent to me or I had to come to the clinic I had no answer at all, someone form the clinic have read it but not bother to answer. A shame as the feedback from customers is very important. I have though out the years always recommended the clinic and Dr Kaye but was extremely disappointed that I didn't get any answer. So that's why I give one star.

The online quote provided seemed reasonable but upon consultation, they had raised they price from $250 to $4000. I do not recommend putting a deposit as there are many plastic surgery clinics in Gangnam who can offer consultations the day of.In addition, they also do not provide any guarantee or warranty for their work. After a year, my eyelid starting reverting back to presurgery droop, however secondary surgery on the same location has a lot more considerations thus a revision was double the cost of the surgery. I believe this reflects poorly on the company policy, the experience/competency of the surgeons or (worst possible scenario) it is a scam to have you constantly come back.

이벤트가격이네 뭐네 광고하면서 막상 가면 가격 덤탱이에, 수술후에는 말이 달라짐. 지방흡입 절대 비추. 손님 호갱으로 보는 병원. 지방흡입수술하고 울퉁불퉁 모양도 짝짝이로 부작용왔는데 원장이고 뭐고 나몰라라함. 의사가 내몸을 수술한게 아니라고 강하게 확신한다. 최악의병원.

Questions and answers

What is calf reduction?

Calf reduction is a cosmetic procedure aimed to lessen the size and volume of calves by removing fat or muscle from the area to make your legs more skinny and attractive. 

In most cases, calf reduction is the only option for people who want to enhance the appearance of their legs by improving their calves' size and shape.

What are the reasons calves increase?

An increase in this area can be observed in the following cases:

  • Swelling or so-called edema — can be a symptom of certain diseases or some associated with overweight, excessive fluid intake, wearing uncomfortable shoes, etc. 
  • Excess weight — even a slight increase in subcutaneous fatty tissue gives additional volume to calves.
  • Intensive physical activity — can increase calf muscle mass. In this case, small calves can only be returned with surgery.

How is the calf reduced with the help of liposuction ?

Calf reduction by removing fat deposits (liposuction) is the best treatment option if the volume increased because of the accumulation of adipose tissue.

The recovery period duration depends on the volume of the removed substance. It can last from several days to several weeks. After the calf reduction with lipo , doctors recommend to limit physical activity for 6 weeks and wear compression stockings.

When calves are reduced by removing fatty deposits, only a few tiny scars remain. However, a patient has a significant muscle mass and a small body fat mass, only a slight decrease in calf volume can be expected.

How can surgery reduce the calf volume?

The most effective method of calf reduction. During the procedure, the surgeon removes the hypertrophied muscle that enlarges the calf volume through a 5 cm incision in the popliteal fossa and incision in the middle of the tibia. As a result, the volume can be reduced up to 5-7 cm. The surgery takes 1-2 hours

However, calf reduction surgery has some disadvantages. Among them are:

  • scarring
  • short term strength loss
  • removal of healthy muscle tissue
  • in patients with a small amount of adipose tissue in the calf area, the inner contour of the upper calf area looks somewhat unnatural.

How long is the rehabilitation period after the calf reduction surgery ?

  • The hospital stay takes 24 hours.
  • About 3 months after the operation, the patient must wear compression stockings.
  • The patient should take heparin to prevent thrombosis.
  • In the first 2-3 days the patient moves with crutches. 
  • In the first 2 weeks after calf reduction, the patient must rest and upward the legs.
  • About 6 weeks the physical activity is forbidden. 
  • The fully functional ability of calves is restored in a few weeks.
  • In general, the recovery period takes about 6 months.

What is endoscopic partial calf reduction?

Endoscopic calf reduction is a surgical procedure aimed at thinning of muscle tissue with an electric knife (a knife that cuts the tissue with the help of electric current and heat). Thus, the natural form of calves is preserved. This calf reduction method is the most widespread in South Korea. 

The partial resection takes 1-2 hours. The technique is popular due to small skin incisions, possibility to make individual calf shape, and short-term recovery period (3-4 weeks). 

The endoscopic procedure is still a surgery, so specialists also remove healthy muscle tissue. It is a partial reduction and the calf volume does not decrease as much as when the muscle is completely removed. If the surgeon cannot make the cut surface smooth, the roughness of the contour may remain noticeable. So choosing a highly-qualified specialist is crucial.
