A couple has claimed that getting cosmetic surgery together is the ultimate ‘bonding experience’.
Jack Morris, 28, from Birmingham, and his girlfriend Assia Riad, 25, jetted to Istanbul for a nine-day trip to get cosmetic procedures.
While Jack opted for a hair transplant, Assia had a rhinoplasty, which cost them a combined £4,650.
They had their surgeries done on the same day, and afterwards, the couple, who both work in marketing, were reunited in Assia’s hospital ward that night, where they shared their dinner.
Assia had dreamt of a rhinoplasty since she broke her nose when she was 16 years old and knew her boyfriend of five years would come with her anyway to support her.

But Jack decided he may as well undergo a hair transplant while he was there after being concerned about his thinning locks.
While Jack’s recovery will take almost a year, his girlfriend’s nose has already ‘miraculously’ healed.
The couple posted their trip online with the caption: ‘If you’re looking for a bonding experience for yourself and your partner, I’d highly recommend this.’
Assia said: ‘Going with Jack was literally the best decision ever. I’ve known for years I wanted to get it done. He was going to come anyway as a companion just to be there for me, so decided he wanted to get his hair done at the same time.
‘It was also cheaper to go together as it was part of the package. It was like being on a holiday, it was a beautiful hotel.
‘One of the restaurants had an amazing view over the pool and the sea so we spent a lot of time there sitting, drinking iced-coffee.

‘It was just nice that we had each other. When we were lying in bed and when the swelling was really bad, if the other person had been completely healthy or able to do things and swimming, it’d be a bit weird.
‘One of us would be a bit jealous if they were by the pool or something. We were both in it together so we could help each other at our worst.’
The rhinoplasty cost Assia £2,400 and Jack’s hair transplant was £2,250, including not just their surgeries but transfers and the hotel where they spent the rest of their trip looking after each other.
Jack said: ‘We always had the conversation that I’d get my hair done, like going bald just wasn’t an option for me.
‘No offence to the bald community, there’s a lot of great bald men in this world, I just didn’t want to join them.
‘I wasn’t under general anaesthesia for it like Assia. It’s a bit weird to be eating a bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich while they’re putting grafts in your head.

Jack’s recovery will take almost a year, his girlfriend’s rhinoplasty ‘miraculously’ healed at a much quicker pace
Since their surgeries, Jack has another 12 months before his hair transplant is fully healed, but Assia, had surprisingly avoided suffering any bruises and is over the moon with the results
‘After it was done, they wrapped me up, bandaged up the back of my head and then had a quick consultation. I could have gone back to our hotel but I asked to be put to bed in the room where Assia was. It was nice to see her.
‘It was a hilarious sight to be honest. It was funny to see each other in such a state. We were in it together so it was good.’
Since their surgeries, Jack has another 12 months before his hair transplant is fully healed, but Assia, had surprisingly avoided suffering any bruises and is over the moon with the results.
Assia, who is originally from Germany, said: ‘For some reason I have no bruises at all. Even the surgeon, when he took the cast off, he was so shocked I had no bruising.
‘At the start it was really difficult to open my mouth and on the second day I completely lost my taste and smell because of the swelling.
‘After the cast was taken off I could taste and smell again though, and so before we left we had Turkish kebabs as our last meal. I’m honestly so excited and happy looking at my own reflection. It’s so weird.’
