“Following a couple of severe nose bleeds - and I mean biblical proportions - my father (88 years old and unfortunately now on his own) was finally referred to Miss Little. Her expertise in this area is second to none and her initial treatment and follow ups solved the problem (where others had unfortunately not succeeded). Her approach is one of extraordinary professionalism but done so in an extremely pleasant manner. We feel very fortunate indeed to have been under her care. I would have no hesitation in recommending her. Truly brilliant. (And sorry if this is too complimentary but it is well deserved!)“

I was slightly nervous about having this procedure (septoplasty) done for a second time in a year, but after the first consultation with Miss Little my worries but put to rest and I was very confident that this time round I would see the intended benefits. Miss Little is very friendly and reassuring and her attention to detail when explaining scan results and the procedure process was great. The morning after my procedure I had a phone call from Miss Little to check how I was doing and to let me know that the procedure went well, I also received a second phone call after a week. I found that at any stage throughout my recovery, Miss Little was available for any advise on how to aid recovery or to answer any concerns I may have had. It has now been around 6 weeks since and I am already really happy with the results and look forward to continued improvements with my breathing. **I would highly recommend Miss Little to anybody reading this.**

When Dr S Little offered to take me under her care I was so happy and relieved, as she gave me such confidence and hope for the future. From the first consultation right up until till the removal of my nose stitches Dr S Little was there, with her professional and extensive knowledge along with great empathy, kindness and understanding of my nose problems which included breathing difficulties. I'm so happy to say that I can now breath freely as never before and my nose reconstruction was a success.

Miss Little was very welcoming and made sure that all my questions and concerns were answered during the initial consultation. On the day of the surgery Miss Little made a point of popping in whilst I was in recovery to tell me how things went, and gave me comfort that all went well. I can't thank Miss Little enough for the improvement in the quality of my breathing and especially sleeping, since the procedure. Thank you.

I recently had sinus surgery under Miss Little. She was kind and empathetic throughout and helped to put my mind at ease. She explained everything clearly and was honest of what she thought. Following the surgery she has requested followups to ensure that my recovery was straightforward. I would recommend Miss Little to anyone who needs sinus surgery.

After having a number of consultations with other surgeons for revision rhinoplasty, I approached Miss Little and immediately felt like she understood the issues I had and felt like she had the capabilities to perform the surgery well. Miss Little has a very calm and confident demeanor which helped to put me at ease and make my decison to go ahead with the surgery. We had 2 consultations together and she fully explained the whole procedure, including the risks and expected outcomes of the surgery. I went in for surgery on a Friday morning where Miss Little was waiting to discuss any last minute questions I had prior to the surgery. Again, her confidence and calming nature really helped to ease any nerves I had. After the surgery she visited again to see how I was doing and even checked on me again on the Saturday morning prior to my discharge. I am now 4 weeks post op and am healing well and given that it was a very complex surgery, at this point am very happy with the results. All in all my experience with Miss Little has been great. I only wish I had gone to her in the first place so I could have avoided the need to have revision surgery. For anyone looking to get any type of rhinoplasty I highly recommend Miss Little.

Miss Little treated an ear infection in my right ear and wax build up in both ears by removing the excess wax. The treatment was effective, quick and delivered at the time of the appointment. Throughout Miss Little was clear in her communication, thorough in exploring the effects on my hearing and hugely reassuring. The treatment has had excellent results and I cannot fault the service.

I underwent complex reconstruction surgery with Sarah Little following a sub-standard procedure with another surgeon which left me unable to breathe through my nose, with serious damage to the internal structure of my nose and visible facial scarring. I met with Miss Little on four occasions over the course of a year before making the decision to proceed. Miss Little also referred me to a radiographer for internal scans. I was very nervous about the procedure and asked numerous questions about the process, costs, likely outcomes and worst-case scenario. On each occasion, Miss Little answered all my questions carefully and patiently and made sure I understood the risks. She prepared me so I could make an informed decision and I never felt under pressure to move through the process until I was ready. On the day of the surgery, Miss Little gave me the opportunity to ask any final questions. She also came to visit me in the hospital on Saturday morning before I was discharged. I expected swelling and bruises all over my face but experienced none. The plaster was removed six days later with no complications. It is now three months since the surgery. My breathing is significantly improved and the swelling all gone. I expected that the minor cosmetic improvements we discussed in advance would not be achievable. I am delighted they were. If you are researching your options for ENT/Septoplasty/Rhinoplasty a consultation with Sarah Little is the very best place to start. From both the technical and client care perspective, she is unsurpassed. It was extremely important to me that my surgeon was a woman; I can’t describe how relieved I am to have chosen Sarah Little.

Miss Sarah Little

Thank you for your feedback on your septo rhinoplasty. We are pleased that you are happy with the results and delighted that your breathing has improved.

I was so nervous about my septorhinoplasty. Sarah was the 3rd consultant I had seen. It was a complex operation that took over 4hrs but it went perfectly. I am so pleased with both the function and the appearance of my nose, and I could not recommend Miss Little more. From beginning to end she was amazing. Everything was explained well. Miss little visited me before and after the operation and I had very little bruising. I had an open septorhinoplasty with a break and I have heeled extremely well. I can not see the scars under my nose anymore and my nose seems pretty settled after just 6mths. I would happily answer any questions you may have a about Miss Little

I found Miss Little to be extremely efficient and conscientious. She took time to discuss potential diagnosis and treatment options during the diagnosis phase of my condition with myself and my wife. She explained the situation in detail with the aid of MRI and CT scans and put us both at ease. When the diagnosis was concluded she undertook the complex surgery required to address the problem and provided an excellent standard of care. I am now fully recovered.

I want to tell you how pleased I was with the level of care I received from Dr Little. I was recently diagnosed with orbital cellulitis and not knowingly, Dr Little explained, potentially was hours from blindness in my right eye. I was seen almost immediately, a CT scan was done and not long later Dr Little had taken full control of the diagnosis and had a plan in place for what to do fix it - to my relief. She and the team, who are clearly very very busy, took total control of the situation, explaining the procedure to me, and making it happen as quickly as it needed to, to save my sight. To have someone as qualified, clever, caring and brilliant as Dr Little and those around her make themselves available to help me when I needed it most is remarkable and I am very thankful. Further, although there wasn't a bed for me on ENT after the procedure, the temporary ward in which I was placed was well staffed and I was very well cared for by the team of nurses, with regular visits from Dr Little. I am a big advocate and recommend Dr Little (and the team) are praised for their work. Please do let me know that my thanks have been passed on to Dr Little, those senior to her, the nurses and administrative staff, and those higher up in the hospital if needed. I want them all to know how grateful I am, and how brilliant they are.
