I was so happy with my last Botox treatment and it stood me in good stead over summer in NZ then summer in the Caribbean! Thank you so much :)
Excellent consultant. Fantastic manner with patients. Listens and explains very well. His PA Julia is brilliant
Had my 3 months follow up this week, via Zoom. Like in a „real“ consultation, Florian is friendly and very professional. But the most important thing for me: The swelling has gone down, as explained, and the shape of my nose is just what I wanted….Thanks
Just had a Video consultation with Mr. Bast. Never had one before and was sceptical about it, BUT: I feel so reassured now. Mr. Bast put me at ease, even via Video, answered all my questions, explained the treatment plan and sent me the prescription. Thanks so much!
Mr Bast has given me the ability to breathe properly and on top of giving me a functional nose he’s also made it look absolute incredible, I can’t thank him enough. From our first meeting I knew I was in good hands, through out he was able to explain exactly what was going to happen (without over complicating it) and perfectly describe the outcome (it almost sounded too good to be true) but what he promised is what I received. I never once felt nervous about trusting him with such a central feature to my appearance and he has always made me feel welcome seeing him in appointments and welcome to come back at any time should I have any further questions. I would recommend Mr Bast in a heartbeat
I have been extremely pleased with my experience under Mr Bast's care. It is highly important to me to feel confidence in a doctor/healthcare professional, and Mr Bast reassured me and explained in detail what was to happen regards my care at every stage, helping me to allay any worries or doubts that the procedure required would negatively impact me in any way. Thank you Mr Bast (if you read this) for your care, it is extremely appreciated.
Mr Bast is a top professional. Examination was thorough and everything was explained clearly. Superb experience
Dear Mr. Bast, Thank you so much for everything you have done for me, and for looking after me so well. I will always remember your kindness and I love my new nose.
I injured my nose when I was a child and struggled to breathe through it for over 10 years which effected my daily life, sleep and exercise. I also had trouble with equalising pressure. I had two surgeries over the years to fix it and both didn’t work. I came to Mr Florian Bast in desperation to fix my nose and I honestly can’t thank him enough. Mr Bast as a person is very easy-going and likeable and an incredibly highly skilled surgeon. You can tell he is passionate about his work and makes sure to give you the time and care you need. Each consultation was informative and genuinely a pleasure to be at. Within two consultations and a CT scan he had confirmed that I had a deviated septum with deformity to the right side, inflamed turbinates and lots of scar tissue. I also had a sinus issue especially to the right side and skin that was breaking down on the front of my nose due to a protruding bone in the that was made worse from a past surgery. Mr Bast listened to my priorities, made sure I was realistic in what I could expect and helped to guide me with decisions. Mr Bast performed an endoscopic sinus surgery using the balloon technique and a second revision septorhinoplasty. This was to sort out the sinus issue, straighten my septum, clear the nostrils and straighten the nose bone which involved transferring cartilage. I was under a tight time pressure from my insurance and so I had to have the surgery as soon as possible to be covered by it. Both Mr Bast and his secretary Julia were great at making this achievable, with consultations, scans and the surgery itself booked in no time at all. I was never made to feel like I was inconveniencing them and they both replied to emails and questions straight away. The surgery itself lasted 3 hours and I was treated really well by the hospital nurses and staff. Mr Bast came to visit before the surgery to make sure I knew what was going to happen and if everything was okay. The aftercare was amazing as Mr Bast didn’t just do the surgery and leave me to it, he genuinely cared about my wellbeing and the outcome of the surgery. I was given all the post-op medication that I needed with clear instructions. Emails with questions that I had over the next couple of days re bleeding were quickly replied to and advice given. I also want to point out that, despite this surgery being the most intrusive and complex of all the surgeries I had the in past, there was very limited bruising compared to the two black eyes I had for weeks after the first two surgeries. This was all down to the technical skill and patience that he used when operating on my nose and using the most recent, advanced techniques. Although my nose is still swollen and I will not feel/ see the end result for a couple of months, everything is already so much better. After 10+ years of sounding like Darth Vadar for the 10 seconds I could actually breathe through my nose, I can now finally take a deep breath through it. Sleeping, flying and every day life is so much better already. It also looks great as I no longer have an obviously broken nose with a funky discoloured patch. Honestly, this surgery has been life changing. I was fed up of the ongoing nose problems and surgery failures and knew that I needed to find a top surgeon to fix it once and for all. I can’t thank Mr Bast enough for being that surgeon. I’d recommend Mr Bast to literally everybody I know.
From the first meeting it was made clear to me what my condition was and how the procedure will benefit me. During the process, during and after the procedure, I was able to communicate with Florian in what can only be described as a clear and straightforward manner; Florian would give me detailed information about what would be done and how it will affect me, including information about the recovery process and what could go wrong. Following the procedure Florian was again very descriptive in what went on whilst I was on the operating table. I got a feeling the Florian was very meticulous with his work and was very happy with it. I can say that I am really happy with the results.
Excellent functional and cosmetic result!! I am delighted on both fronts. Thank you.
Dear Florian I wouldn’t let myself believe that my nose could be fixed but you’ve done the impossible - thank you! Can’t stop looking at it and I am so happy. See you in a couple of weeks and thank you!
Mr Bast was consistently clear and explanative throughout the entire experience, answering any questions with ease. The procedure itself was a huge success and the results have had a hugely positive impact on my day to day life. Despite my worries beforehand, I couldn't fault the experience.
Dear Dr. Bast and Team, Just wanted to say: Thank you for the surgery that you performed now 3 weeks ago. The recovery so far was easy and breathing is already perfect.
I met Mr. Bast for the first time today and I was absolutely amazed by his high standard of patient care and professionalism. Mr. Bast has an empathetic approach, down to earth, informative, and actively listened to my concerns.
I honestly couldn't be happier to have had Dr Bast as my consultant and surgeon. His service, professionalism, skill and overall care for his patients is second to none. When I was first referred for assessment for a deviated septum, which was affecting my breathing, I really didn't know what to expect and was very nervous about having any kind of surgery. Dr Bast was unbelievably kind, incredibly patient and very thorough in assessing the situation and explaining my options to me (I had so many questions!). He went above and beyond to ensure I had time to make the right decision for me and that I understood everything - as I say, I was very nervous! Dr Bast performed septorhinoplasty and a turbinate reduction and I am so pleased with the results. Within just 3 weeks my breathing was noticeably better (even with swelling still present) and 3 months on, I'm kicking myself for not having surgery sooner - breathing is wonderful. Furthermore, although this was functional surgery, Dr Bast was very understanding of my concerns for the aesthetic outcome - I didn't want to wake up looking like a different person as a result of surgery to improve my breathing. Once again, I'm thrilled with the result. Naturally the shape has changed but subtly, so I still feel exactly like myself, and for the better. It's completely aligned with my expectations and this is thanks to his skill, training and effort to understand his patients in order to achieve a surgical outcome that everyone is happy with.
Very impressed with my consultant Mr Bast. An incredibly efficient and attentive doctor.
Just wanted to say: I am super happy with the treatment, it looks great!! Thank you so much.
Mr Bast thoroughly deserves his 5* rating. He is highly intelligent and explains things clearly and calmly. He doesn't rush you and makes you feel entirely at ease, especially if you are a nervous patient like me. I healed nicely and with hardly any pain. Most importantly I can breathe so much better!
Forever grateful. Highly recommend Mr. Bast and his team.
Dr. Bast made me feel at ease and explained everything in terms I could understand. I am looking forward to my next visit. Highly recommended.

Dear Mr. Bast. Thank you so much for the wonderful kindness and care. I love my new nose.
The service I received has been absolutely excellent and I would highly recommend Mr. Bast.
Mr. Bast performed an excellent surgery on me. My airway is brilliant and the columella finally central.
I can´t thank Dr. Bast enough. He changed my life. The result of his operation is just perfect.
I attended Mr Florian Bast because of an issue with my Eustachian Tubes. In particular I wanted to discuss the option of Endoscopic balloon dilatation. It was necessary to do an Endoscopic examination of my nasal passage, and this was handled efficiently and with consideration. Overall I was very pleased with the consultation, and the discussion of my options which was comprehensive. If I want to go ahead with the procedure I will certainly choose to do so with Mr Blast. David
Calm, thorough, very detailed and professional consultation. Thank you.
Dear Dr.Bast, I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you very much for performing my sinus surgery. I am healing well and the surgery has greatly improved my ability to breathe as well as regaining my sense of smell (which was a pleasant surprise!). Thanks so much.

It´s now three months after I had my Rhinoplasty with Mr. Bast and I am so happy with the result and my whole journey from the first appointment to the 3 months follow up today. He has done an amazing job and cannot recommend him enough. Thank you.
I had a bilateral Eustachian Tube dilation and a Sinuplasty with the Balloon technique 3 months ago with Mr. Bast and I can´t thank him enough. I am very happy with the outcome and just came back from a diving holiday with no pressure problems. Such an improvement to my quality of life.
This was my first visit to Dr Florian Bast and I was most impressed by his manner and professionalism. I was suffering from impacted wax blocking both my ears and he carried out a painless procedure with great skill and gave me additional general advice about my ears without rushing the appointment. I was most impressed.
I can highly recommend Dr. Bast and his cosmetical injectables skills! I wanted to get rid of my forehead lines but as a performer I did not want to lose my expression above my brows. I am very happy with the very subtle and natural result. Thanks so much.
Had septorhinoplasty procedure with Dr. Bast - now almost 1 month post-op, I am extremely happy with the results! The entire process from consultations to the surgery to follow up, Dr Bast delivered 10/10 medical service and professionalism. He demonstrated his top of class ENT expertise extremely well and made me feel fully confident entrusting him with the procedure.
Dr Bast listens, which I think is the most important factor in a Dr, his advice was sound, and I felt reassured by his medical assessment.
From the first meeting with Mr Bast, I was treated with the utmost respect, care and attention. My first consultation was a relaxed, open discussion about what my aims were for the treatment of my nose. I could not breathe through one nostril and I had always struggled with my confidence as I also had a dorsal hump. Florian ensured me that for any surgery to be successful, patient and surgeon must be on the same page throughout the process of consultations, to surgery, to post-op. Therefore, Florian explained clearly what he could do for me and encouraged me to ask as many questions as possible. During all consultations I felt valued, welcome, relaxed and most importantly comfortable to discuss the realistic outcomes for both the function and aesthetic of my nose. I mentioned to Florian how nervous I was about the anaesthetic on the day, therefore he ensured me that I could organise a consultation with the him and the anaesthetist he would use for my surgery in the lead up. I was able to meet the anesthetist and ask lots of questions which put me completely at ease. This is just one example of the excellent care I received with Florian as my consultant. The surgery day came around quickly and Florian was there beforehand to discuss the procedure with myself and my parents at the hospital. He made me feel at ease on the surgery day and had made everything so clearly in the lead up, I felt completely safe and looked after at all times. Once I had woken up from surgery in the recovery room, Florian was there straight away to check I was okay, explained he was pleased with the initial outcome and that confirmed everything went smoothly. At my 'cast-off' consultation, Mr Bast explained what I should expect to happen over the coming weeks. I was so overwhelmed and pleased, and still am. The aftercare was brilliant. Mr Bast prescribed me with sprays/antibiotics etc for the coming weeks/months and I have been using these daily as directed. Genuinely, choosing Mr Bast as my consultant was the best decision I could have made. He was able to give me the nose I could only dream of and I feel more myself than ever, so thank you Mr Bast. This has honestly changed my life for the better and I am looking forward to my next consultation.
Dear Dr. Bast, just wanted to thank you for the surgery. It has absolutely changed my life in so many ways. I can breath again, I can taste and smell food again. I have more energy when I run and I am not constantly stuffy with a pack of tissues in my pocket. Thank you for changing my life, I really appreciate it.
Dr Florian Bast was recommended to me by various ENT specialists. I required specialist treatment for my condition and also wanted a cosmetic improvement on my nose which i felt was heavily twisted and was at times affecting my breathing. So i decided to go ahead with Functional septoplasty, Eustachian tuboplasty and Cosmetic Rhinoplasty with Florian Bast. At first, i was unsure if to get the surgery but Florian was very confident and very reassuring, we had a couple meetings before surgery where he provided face morphed images of what my nose will look like post surgery and having had the surgery i can say i am 100% happy and satisfied with the outcome. Post surgery, i had a few questions regarding the aftercare and even when Florian was away on holiday, he called me and provided me the information i needed. It has been 1 month since my surgery and i am extremely happy with the professional service and care Florian has taken with my case from the start to finish. I highly recommend Florian Bast to anybody considering the treatments noted above.
Dr Bast: Thank you so much for the difference you've made in my life. Your kindness, sincere caring and concern make everything better. The pain and infection is gone. Thanks once again for being a great surgeon and a great human being.
I had a rhinoplasty and currently 3 weeks post-op. Mr Bast understood what results I wanted, was very thorough on the procedure and what he planned to do. He made my nose beautiful and I couldn’t be happier! Thank you!
A recommendation from a friend led me to seek a consultation with Florian Bast. A previous failed operation for facial damage by another surgeon following an accident had left me with a blockage in each nasal cavity and a saddle nose deformity. At our first meeting in Harley Street, Florian defined a plan of action to restore form and function to my nose. He took photographs and morphed the outcome he intended. The complex reconstructive septorhinoplasty that followed on our agreed date, involved a three hour operation carried out by Florian at the excellent Weymouth Street Hospital. The outcome is first class. I can breathe properly again and the nose has a natural non-operated appearance . All objectives achieved! Florian Bast is an excellent surgeon and communicator efficient and is personally accessible to his patients. He inspires confidence and has a sensitive understanding of potential patient concerns. Julia, his PA, offers excellent support, is very knowledgable and makes sure everything goes without hitch. I recommend him without reservation.
Just wanted to say: I am so happy with the natural and fresh looking appearance of my face after the Botox-Treatment by Mr. Bast. Thank you.
I just want to thank Mr Bast. He listened to all of my issues and cured my breathing problems. Before I met Mr Bast I had self-confidence problems and he restored my faith in humanity and got my life back.
THANK YOU so much for fixing my sinuses!
Mr Bast was highly professional and informative. He treated me with respect and dignity.
Very professional, honest and really happy with the quality of care. Highly recommended.
I visited Florian for cosmetic injections in my forehead and filler in my lips. He used a 5 point technique rather than the traditional ‘2 areas’ technique and my forehead has never looked so good - issues around my slightly droopy eyelids have also been corrected as a result. My lips look naturally plump and are completely smooth. Florian took the utmost care with my face, is extremely precise in his work and has a pleasant and calming demeanor. I’m definitely going to be coming back for my next treatments in 6 months time.
Seeing Mr. Bast was a great choice. I gotta say I was very pleased with him at the result is great. At first when I came for the consultation I was a bit nervous and intimidated, cause I didn`t know what to expect, and just for the fact that I was going in there to talk about something that I try to hide it was out of my comfort zone, I was feeling a bit exposed. Mr Bast was charming and warm which made me feel comfortable, and I felt like he knew what he was talking about. Also he was well presented and very professional without being patronizing and I had that feeling of trust staight away. Many thanks!
