I had a wonderful experience undergoing a septoplasty and turbinate reduction with Mr. Bast. I cannot praise him enough for his expertise, thoroughness and support throughout the process. He is meticulous and takes great pride in his work, and the results speak for themselves. Even with functional procedures he’s mindful of aesthetics, which is greatly appreciated when having surgery on your face. Thank you for making the process so smooth and for patiently answering all my questions along the way while also educating me about the issues I was facing. I highly recommend Mr. Bast; he truly deserves all the recognition he receives.
Dr. Bast performed my septorhinoplasty and honestly, I could not be happier with the result. He was very professional and understanding throughout the entire experience, and the final result came out exactly like the morphed picture. He is the perfect surgeon to go to should you want a very natural-looking result, as I did. Thank you Dr. Bast!
I originally visited Mr Bast in regards to breathing difficulties that I have been struggling for many years. After endoscopy and a CT scan Mr Bast recommended that we do a septoplasty with turbinate reduction to alleviate my breathing issues. Mr Bast also explained that he uses a modern technique that is less invasive. He described the procedure and aftercare in detail and made me feel really at ease and trust his expertise. I am now 4 weeks post op and couldn't be happier with the results. I can finally breath and Mr Bast said that my recovery isn't over and that I should experience even more improvement in the coming months! I highly recommend Mr Bast to anyone that is looking for a great ENT.
I had an appointment with Mr Bast for my ear problems which have been impacting my day-to-day life. He immediately put all my worries at ease by explaining different functions, problems that may occur based on my symptoms and provided possible solutions - all in simple terms. The care I received was outstanding - all the pain and ear problems are now gone and I’m very grateful!
Mr Bast has been very clear in explaining the procedure and was available throughout the process.
Very professional and knowledgeable! Achieves very natural results.
Dr Bast and his team are extremely efficient, friendly and professional. From the moment of enquiry, consultations, surgery and post surgery follow up the service and bedside manner is exceptional. Dr Bast considers your requirements and sets real expectations about what can be achieved whilst working closely with you. I could not recommend highly enough and I am very happy with the outcome. A very experience, knowledgeable and highly skilled surgeon.

Mr Florian Bast guided me really good from the beginning. My case was complicated because of my nasal trauma that I had in my childhood. I had septorhinoplasty and the results that Mr florian achieved is above my expectations. The whole journey was really smooth. Moreover, the after care is also really good.
