    PROFESSiONAL and EXCELLENT! I cannot recommend Mr Kasem enough ! He is contentious and so exceptionally kind and confidential. He cares about every aspect of care from consultation to follow up. He explains everything in a comprehensive manner and welcomes questions and concerns . I would recommend Mr Kasem to my nearest and dearest as I know they will be looked after as if they were family. The hospital and staff are wonderful as was his anaesthetist. Me Kasem is a wonderful surgeon and artist. I am so pleased with my beautiful results.

    I have only good things to say about my overall experience of a breast uplift with Dr Kasem. I found him utterly endearing and devoid of the hubris or arrogance of other surgeons I met with when conducting my research for this surgery. His nursing team are so kind and caring too- with a particular mention to Anne Mari who went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. Both her humour and Dr Kasem's helped me to feel very calm throughout the process. Dr Kasem is truly devoted to his craft, specialising only in breast surgery- this was a huge comfort to me as I knew I was getting someone who really cared about their work. Other surgeons didn't feel it necessary to have a mammogram prior to surgery but Dr Kasem insists on all the checks before surgery- due diligence in my view. I'm still in early stages of recovery- 4 weeks post surgery. Everything healed beautifully and continues to heal well. Sadly my nipple sensation has yet to return (really hoping it does but this is a possible fall out which was carefully explained to me). So far though I am a little in awe of my new breasts and a tad terrified of them! I turn 50 this year and they were looking sad and in need of a little pick me up! Well they certainly got that. Dr Kasem listened to what I wanted and he truly delivered. I have enjoyed my follow up appointments with him- he is so personable, kind and funny. It really matters to him that you are happy with everyone and so far I am. 5 stars.

    Mr Kasem is a highly skilled oncoplastic and cosmetic breast surgeon. He is loved by his patients because of his kind and patient centric approach to care. We work together in both the NHS and private sector and often refer patients to each other. I would strongly recommend Mr Kasem.
