    Mr Nikkhah seems like a lovely man . He was very reassuring , warm , friendly and explained the procedures well . I felt very safe in his hands and this trust was justified in the results I have so far. The nurse who took the stitches out on day 6 said it was the best result she had ever seen in terms of lack of swelling/ bruising and scarring.

    I knew from my first consultation with Mr Nikkhah that he was going to be my surgeon. (I had consultations with other surgeons as well). He is very friendly, approachable and I felt that I was listened at. I remember being incredibly nervous and even embarrassed to expose my breasts at the start of the initial assessment, but Mr Nikkhah was quickly able to make me relaxed and at ease. I told him what I was hoping to achieve going from A/small B to a cup C, but the rest I left for his judgement. Mr Nikkhah was very thorough in his assessments and he explained everything clearly. I trusted his opinion on the implant sizes and placement. The operation itself went very smoothly and I was well looked after by him and the staff at Cadocan clinic. Now I'm only 2 weeks post-op, my breasts already look so beautiful and natural. I could look at them through the mirror all day long. The scars have healed well and my nipple sensations are back to normal. The whole experience was incredibly positive and I would recommend Mr Nikkhah whole heartedly to anyone looking for cosmetic breast surgery.

    My experience with Dr Nikkhah has been extremely positive. He explained the procedure very well and offered a follow-up consultation prior to my surgery. This was useful in ensuring that any additional questions I had were answered and that he understood the results I was after. He was successfully able to significantly reduce the weight and improve the appearance of my breasts. I was also well informed by Dr Nikkah of how long the recovery process would roughly take and what it would entail. Any queries/concerns I have had have been promptly answered by email or phone call. Dr Nikkhah is very approachable, friendly and experienced in his profession. I am very happy with my results and the overall experience I have had and would therefore highly recommend him.
