I chose the clinic because I had read so many good things about them. My experience of the consultation was good and I didn’t miss any information. I was operated under light anesthesia, felt no pain The whole experience was very good. The staff is very professional and they know what they are doing. One encounters so many other practitioners and insufficient language, another culture and when there are complications it is not so evident that you can get help at all.
In Turkey I chose full anesthesia and it was awful waking up groggy and nauseous in an environment that neither felt safe nor at home. The nurses that took care of me didn’t speak english and I could barely make myself understood.It was a very uncomfortable situation. I was sick and the anesthesia made me vomit and I slept for 14 hours after I woke up after the operation. My experience abroad is something I can now compensate with my operation with P-O. I had a good contact a week before the operation with both P-O and the wonderful nurse Lena. On operation day, I was able to prepare myself calmly. I felt serene. Since I had such a bad experience earlier with the full anesthesia I chose to go under the operation with a sedative injection. I was nervous for this but my friends, who had undergone the same operation reassured me. They told me that it was very natural to feel nervous but I could feel safe. I focused on the advantage with the sedative just to skip waking up and feeling groggy and nauseous.
The experience is nothing but positive and I only remember one seconde vaguely. The follow-up was professional, I received good information on everything. All my questions have been answered. The shape of my nose is natural and harmonizes with my face. I love my new nose! The overall experience: professional, painless and over my expectations in all ways.
Thank you. I am very pleased!

I was recommended to choose the Astoria Clinic by a friend. The consultation felt somewhat aloof and brief. I felt well taken care of by both the surgeon and the nurses on operation day. I was operated under light anesthesia, was very nervous and worried but there was no need to be at all. No discomfort, the operation’s result was as expected. The overall experience felt good. Kind nurses made me feel at home and calm.
I chose the clinic for PO Haraldsson’s competence. The consultation was objective. The operation under light anesthesia, perfect. There was nothing missing in the information, quick and effective operation. Expectations met absolutely the results. My total experience is positive and proffesional.
P-O Haraldsson was warmly recommended to me by acquaintances who had undergone nose surgery with him. After my consultation, it was quite clear that I would choose the Astoria Clinic as I was received in a professional way and with a great understanding for my wishes.
As I have been searching for some time for a specialist that can help me with the complications from an earlier nose surgery I have often been met with skepticism and less positive treatment. After the consultation with P-O I was hopeful and full of confidence. None of the earlier surgeons had given me so much information and understanding about the nose’s performance and possibilities. I chose to have the operation with P-O because I had undergone surgery in Turkey much due to the false belief that ” They can’t operate noses In Sweden “. I traveled with a well-known travel agent that organizes special trips involving plastic surgery in Turkey with many Swedish and Scandinavian clients. I thought I was in safe hands and that it could be like a holiday going away and having an operation done. The experience abroad was anything but pleasant and safe. I felt neglected and lonely, even if I had a co-ordinator watching over me, there were other people involved, language barriers, an unfamiliar culture and when there are complications it isn’t obvious you get help. I chose to have full anaesthesia for the operation in Turkey and it was terrible to wake up groggy and feeling nauseous in soroundings that don’t feel safe or at home. The nurses taking care of me couldn’t speak english and I could barely made myself understood. I was a very uneasy situation. I was nauseous and got sick due to anesthesia and slept for about 14 hours after I woke up from the operation.
My experience abroad is something I can now compensate with my operation with P-O. I had a good contact a week before the operation with both P-O and the wonderful nurse Lena. On operation day, I was able to prepare myself calmly. I felt tranquil. Since I had such a bad experience earlier with the full anesthesia I chose to go under the operation with a sedative injection. I was nervous for this but my friends, who had undergone the same operation reassured me. They told me that it was very natural to feel nervous but I could feel safe. I focused on the advantage with the sedative just to skip waking up and feeling groggy and nauseous.In the morning on operation day I had a placid meeting with P-O where we talked over my expectations and he explained again the possibilities for my nose. The environment felt safe and cozy. There was no stress as it can be in bigger clinics or hospitals which is contagious on the patient. The nurses were wonderful, cheering and listening to me. The sedative injection didn’t feel at all, it was more like a relaxing sensation spread over my body, almost like being tired and I got to choose to be awake. It felt a little as the moment before you fall asleep. As I was lying there and closed my eyes under the operation Iwas thinking: it’s almost cozy here, well tucked and pampered.It gives an idea of how safe I felt.
When the operation was over I could stand up by myself and walk with the help of Lena, the nurse, all the way to my bed. It was a marvelous experience to skip the waking up after having been anaesthesized. I was feeling happy and my mother , who was waiting for me, was very surprised when she saw I was so sprightly.
I feel I am safe and have great trust towards P-O and the Astoria Clinic. To everyone that has plans for going abroad to undergo operations, I can recommend to give it a second thought. With all the aftereffects and the treatment, not to mention the psychological strain I suffered, I wish I had chosen to go to P-O from the beginning.
I was recommended at the Ear, nose and throat Clinic at Järva. The consultation felt safe but a little nervous.The operation was done under light anesthesia. I was a bit jittery but all went well, it wasn’t so bad as I had imagined. The result met my expectations. The whole experience was good and gave clear answers to my questions.
I want to thank you very much for a successful operation. You performed a nose operation on me sometime in November 2007.You lifted then the tip of the nose. I must say you made it look very natural. I couldn’t see the results until 2 years later. When I came back for the follow-up after the operation I was a little dissatisfied and thought my nose still looked long but afterwards my nose became finer and I think my nose looks more lifted than earlier. One has to have patience, that’s all.
I was recommended to contact Dr. Haraldsson by a physician for the troubles with my nose. The operation was performed under light anesthesia and I had no pain. All went well. The care offered under the operation felt good and safe. The result of the operation was greater than expected. The total experience was so good that I came back for a new consultation for a new treatment. I trust in you!
I made the choice after a relation to my mother, who is an ear, nose and throat specialist spoke about PO being the best to perform nose surgery. I had difficulties talking to PO, during the consultation. It felt as he was somehow in a hurry. I was operated under total anesthesia and it went well. The overall experience has been good until now and I am satisfied with having chosen the Astoria Clinic.
I chose the clinic because of PO’s competence in nose surgery. PO didn’t totally agree on the results I wished for. He saw the nose as a part of the whole face, while I focused on the nose in detail. His reasoning was of course relevant and he won my confidence. The operation was performed under light anesthesia. I worried a lot before but it was unnecessary. I can barely remember the operation.
