I saw him about a painful and problematic cyst on my hand, not sure whether anything could be done as the first person I had asked was concerned about tackling it. He was thoughtful and careful and explained how he thought it could be removed and the skin moved around in order to cover the gap it would leave. The actual procedure was less traumatic than I had feared despite seeing very long pieces of thread sewing me up! The couple of weeks after were a bit difficult trying to keep it dry but I soon got used to it. Now, a couple of months later, it is beginning to look much less swollen with very little scarring although still a bit tender. I thank him and highly recommend him to others.
Mr Lim is a diligent, thoughtful and professional surgeon who has taken the time to understand my desired outcome and superseded my expectation in terms of what has been achieved. He has gone over and above in both time and effort to provide me with a new lease of life. Due to his skill and patience, the results are better than I could have ever hoped for - I couldn’t be happier.
Professional, clear communication, really listen to my preferences, highly recommend.
At first I had reservations about Mr Lim in the initial consultation, but how he proved me wrong on the day of the surgery! He had a very calming nature before and during the surgery and made me feel like he had my best interests at heart. Post surgery he was friendly and seemed happy with the results. I am so pleased that his surgery has meant I am no longer in daily pain. Still a little way to go on the healing process but nearly there. Thank you
Very caring and seeing me at 9 pm meant so much to me. Nothing is too much trouble for him. He's so lovely.
Very friendly and professional
Where do I even begin - if you are considering having a tummy tuck do not go to anyone else but Mr Lim! I had been Insecure for many years about a lower stomach pouch after having two c-section deliveries. I had been considering a tummy tuck to remove this for a while, and following a in-depth consultation with Phill I finally felt safe to go ahead with the procedure. From start to finish he was caring, reassuring and professional. The results have completely exceeded my expectations and I am over the moon! His experience and knowledge surrounding abdominal surgeries is evident. I would recommend him to anyone contemplating this surgery in order to the the best possible results!
Mr Lim has been amazing from start to finish. The moment I spoke with him I knew he would be the surgeon I chose to carry out my procedure. I felt listened to and that my best interests were the main focus point of his work. He explained every step of the way thoroughly and with great knowledge which placed me with a lot of trust for him and helped me feel at ease and comfortable. On surgery day I was a little anxious and he took the time to sit with me so that I could be reassured. I have had a very positive experience and couldn’t be more thankful for the results I have received and would highly recommend him
Mr Lim is the best surgeon I could ever have picked , he is so knowledgeable and progressional and made me feel at ease straight away. My recovery was positive and a breeze and I look forward to more surgery’s with Mr Lim in the near future. Thank you so much Mr Lim for your great hard work. I will never forget my experience.
