“Mr Abood was welcoming, professional, knowledgeable and thorough. He gave a full explanation around his diagnosis and the plan for treatment. I felt very comfortable to have a minor procedure with local anaesthetic, the process was seamless and efficient, moreover it was absolutely pain free. I had no post operative pain whatsoever, I can only attribute this to Mr Abood's excellent surgical skill. In short an excellent experience. “

Mr Abood Examined a skin lesion on my face and treated it by excision at a see and treat clinic. He was calm and attentive, answering my questions honestly and although very early days I'm sure it will be a neat job. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Justine arrange a phone appointment and within the week for Dr Abood to assess my fitness for an operation after the assessment, the operation date and time were arranged to suit my schedule. I was kept abreast of updates via phone and text until the operation date On the operation day - Dr Abood was welcoming and informative with a clear plan if action. There were clear after care instructions which were easy to follow. Minimal discomfort and easy instructions have made the recovery seamless. Thank you for making a concerning issue manageable.

I first saw Mr Abood at a free 10 minute introductory consultation to discuss the options for upper and lower eyelid surgery. I had very pronounced fatty bags under my eyes which made me look constantly tired. I had tried all the wondrous eye creams available with little success and been contemplating surgery for quite a few years but this gave me the impetus to investigate options. Mr Abood was very positive about what could be achieved whilst clearly highlighting the limitations. The surgery went well, however I did have a burst blood vessel in one eye four days post surgery which cause a lot of swelling and delayed the healing in that eye. It was an unfortunate setback as it was just before Christmas, but now 2 months post op the end result is wonderful. Throughout Mr Abood’s attention was very kind, reassuring and professional.

From the first meeting with Mr Abood, I was put at ease. It's not easy talking about what you dont like about yourself physically but his approach being both professional and supportive and realistic was exactly what I needed. He explained the procedure and what I would need to do to prepare and while it took a bit longer than expected, he was spot on with the advice he gave me. As a result, i was sin a healthier place physically and this meant there was a better opportunity for the outcome I wanted. The procedure went well and the result is awesome. Even better than I expected. I cannot thank Mr Abood enough for his support and guidance through this whole process.

I was very happy with my experience as Mr Abood's patient. Mr Abood removed 4 lipomata from my upper body which had been bothering me through mild pain and cosmetic discomfort. Mrr Abood had been recommended to me by a colleague. He was very diligent, explained the background to lipomata in detail and made transparent and clear recommendations. I always felt very much like Mr Abood was in full control and always felt fully and well informed. On the day of the procedure, I woke up with cold-like symptoms. After highlighting that to Mr Abood, he very carefully and prudently assessed whether the removal procedure could still go ahead. Given the location of my lipomata, it was require to put me to sleep during the procedure. Therefore, assessing the potential implications of my cold was even more important. Mr Abood did that very diligently - together with the anaeshetist that helped him. The procedure itself was swift and short. Post procedure, my experience was also very good. I had no irritations or pain, scars have been healing very well and Mr Abood gave very clear guidance how to behave and what I could and could not do following the procedure which helped greatly in the healing process. All in all, I was very happy with Mr Abood and recommend him highly for surgical procedures.

Brest reduction is something I always wanted for a long time,I wanted to make sure my surgeon understood my vision and the personal journey I’m on as a young woman. Upon meeting Dr Abood his warm smile put me at ease,he showed me his work. He answered all my questions. I explained to him what my goal was and I left the consultation excited and confident that Dr Abood was the right surgeon for me. Communication throughout the procedure and after recovery has been easy and stress free. Any questions I wanted to ask he was happy to answer and he was very supportive and reassuring. I still remember waking up from my surgery and seeing Dr Abood by my bedside early hours in the morning. Which was comforting and put me at ease. I’m beyond happy with my results, thankyou Dr Abood for changing my life,words can’t not explain the confidence I have gained. I feel like a new person. This is happiest I have ever been.

I highly praise Mr.Abood and all members of his team that were involved in the operation. I felt Mr. Abood was genuinely empathetic with my reasoning for wanting to proceed with the operation, and with regular consultations my ability to confide in him grew tremendously. I had been to visit many surgeons but none were on par with Mr.Abood’s level of experience, intelligence and reassurance. Growing up I have always had large breasts, this was a genetic feature impossible to overcome and with my very petite body frame they just became ever so disproportionate. At first, I was extremely apprehensive, and I kept doubting myself whether to proceed. This is all to be expected however I can assure you the impact this surgery has had on my mental health has been tremendous. My posture has changed, my self-assurance has improved and I feel invincible. I was bed bound for two weeks, and on medication which had side effects of vomiting and drowsiness. I wore a post-surgical bra for 6 weeks and was able to resume to physical activity after the 4th week. As an athlete, my body healed very well and after the 4th week I was completely pain-free. Although this may not be the same case for everyone, the results are truly life-changing and beyond any amount of money comparable. The journey I endured was definitely worth it and one I do not regret. Mr.Abood has restored what left of my youth and I am beyond thankful for everything he has done for me. I would recommend him to anyone considering this procedure, you are in great hands!

I am so pleased I chose Mr Abood to do my surgery, after many consultations with other surgeons. At the first consultation Mr Abood listened to what I wanted to achieve, he explained the whole procedure to me from start to finish. I didn’t feel that I was being rushed through the appointment, unlike others! He answered all my questions. I had my surgery in July 2019 at Weymouth St hospital. Mr Abood was very assuring as I was quite anxious. The procedure was exactly what he told me to expect. He is a lovely guy and has a wonderful bedside manor. I would highly recommend him.

From my very first consultation Mr Abood made me feel at ease regarding my surgery. He was friendly, clear and concise about the treatment and the realistic outcome and results that I would see. His approachable personality instantly made me feel at ease and I never left the consultation room feeling unsure or worried about anything. On the day of my surgery he was incredibly calm and collected which instantly settled my own nerves and he made sure that any questions or concerns I had were answered before I went into surgery. I am now 4 months post surgery and although I was concerned about the healing process, I could not feel happier about the work that Mr Abood has done. The healing process was incredibly smooth and relatively painless and the results are simply fantastic. I would highly recommend Mr Abood as a surgeon because his attention to detail and professional demeanor makes him an excellent surgeon. I could not be happier with my results.

I would just like to say what a difference to my life my recent surgery has made. From the moment my husband and I stepped into your consulting room I was made to feel at ease and not vain or stupid for wanting a tummy tuck. You were very calming as I was a bit nervous about the procedure. Everything was explained very clearly and all of our questions were answered. I felt that you genuinely cared and that was very reassuring. On the day of my procedure at the Spire Hospital, I was looked after extremely well and it was good to see you before the operation and also the first thing the next day to check that I was comfortable and had no questions. he aftercare from yourself and Natasha at Spire was superb and if I queried anything it was followed up immediately and concerns answered. My self-confidence has soared since the procedure, I feel so much better about myself, it's really amazing. I feel like a different person. It'hard to find words to express my feelings about the change the operation has made me but I would definitely recommend this procedure to others. Also, if I wanted any other surgery, I would not hesitate to contact you. Thank you again so much.

I had a large cyst on my cheek that I had wanted to get removed for a long time, I had a pre-surgery meeting with Ahid and he was very nice, I told him I had a mechanical aortic valve and gave advice that as-long as inr is below 2.0 he can perform surgery. On day of surgery it was a painless experience and he allowed my mum to come and watch and video it. The cyst came out without rupturing which is great, from what I saw there was very minimal scarring and the lump is completely gone from my face. Ahid did a great job and came across as a very nice guy, I would recommend anyone to have surgery done by him. Cheers Ahid.

Dr Abood spent a long time understanding what I wanted to achieve, answered every question in depth. Maintained contact throughout the time coming up to my procedure.

In my first appointment with Mr Abood, he answered all my questions and explained things in detail. He always had a smile and made me feel so confident. As such, I booked in to have breast augmentation surgery with no doubts! Before the day of surgery, I had a second consultation with Mr Abood so that I could have a detailed discussion about the operation. I was a bit nervous and worried about 2 weeks before the surgery day. I was so glad that Chloe and also the secretary of Mr Abood - Julie- sent me emails from time to time to make sure I was feeling alright, and they shared their experiences with me as well so that I felt more comfortable and ready for the surgery! Once the surgery is done, my pain was gone in two days because Mr Abood has good hands, definitely! I’m so happy with the result and no regrets! (Breast Augmentation procedure).
