“From my very first consultation regarding blepharoplasty with Mr D'souza through to the final follow-up appointment, I could not recommend him highly enough. His persona made me feel comfortable at the outset and I never felt any pressure to proceed with surgery. He was very reassuring and this was particularly welcome during the procedure itself. I am so pleased with the results of my eye lift, more so than I could ever have imagined. Thank you!“

    I had my initial consultation with Mr D'Souza, which was a free 15 minute one. Immediately on entering the room, he told me I did not have to rush and that he would give me as much time as I needed to answer my questions. Mr D'Souza has a lovely manner. He listened to all my concerns as well as managing my expectations. It was a total pleasure to meet him and he allayed all my fears. I saw him again a few months later as I need a bit of re-assurance and had some further questions. Again, he was extremely patient and was happy to spend time with me. Mr D'Souza instilled confidence and made me feel at ease.
