“My whole experience with George Orfaniotis has been so great. Beyond grateful I found him. So at the initial consultation George spent time explaining where stitches/scar would be and went through realistic expectations. He answered all my questions and when I asked about other procedures he said I didn’t need and explained how a deep plane could help mid face and also my neck to some extent. He was also very confident with navigating nerves during surgery and I knew he’d done lots of facial reconstruction work. Again this was very reassuring to me. On the day of the op everything was so well organised but felt totally relaxed, his whole team was great, even the anethestist when seeing I got a little anxious reassured me and was brilliant. George explained after I had bruised quite a lot but some people do more than others and not to worry. Recovery was great and I was so comfortable throughout. Never any pain and I slept well. About 2 weeks into healing I felt one of my eyes looked ‘pulled?’ But it was just swelling subsiding and again George reassured me here and after speaking with him it actually settled again within 2 days. I’m over the moon with results now. They are so natural but have made such a difference, not just aesthetically but to my mental health. I’d have absolutely no hesitation in recommending George to anyone. A fantastic surgeon on so many levels. “

    I couldn’t fault Mr Orfaniotis. I’ve had surgeries elsewhere and have to say this was by far the best experience. Listened to what I wanted, advised on the best course of action and likely outcome. Added to that he’s a really nice guy. I will be going to him for repeat surgery.

    I cannot recommend Mr Orfaniotis enough! His care and skill are exceptional. Mr Orfaniotis provided me with care which goes above and beyond. From the start he was available anytime to answer all the questions I had. He provided a comprehensive and honest discussion to ensure I made the best decision for me. Furthermore, his pre and post-op team are incredible and give essential support and guidance throughout the entire process. The result of my surgery was better than anything I could have imagined. I could not be happier with the results!! My breasts are now incredible, they fit my body perfectly and are unbelievably natural looking which is exactly what I wanted. The post-op care I received was impeccable. I had absolutely no concerns after surgery and a very smooth recovery thanks to Mr Orfaniotis. It is also reassuring the after care is available even months after surgery as once a patient Mr Orfaniotis will always provide care and support. Without hesitation I would return to Dr Orfaniotis should I ever undergo future surgery.

    Mr Orfaniotis is a brilliant surgeon who possesses all the attributes you could possibly want from a facial plastic surgeon. Firstly, he has incredible surgical skills as a result of his rigorous training and extensive experience as a facial reconstructive specialist. This means he has a deep understanding of facial anatomy and working with facial nerves so you know you are in safe and competent hands. Secondly his surgical technique, which is the ‘deep plain’, is amongst the most technically advanced in this field and produces beautiful natural results with the most longevity. Thirdly, he is able to combine his amazing surgical skills with artistic flair and principles to produce exceptional outcomes. I was so impressed with the photos of his work, and when I met him I knew that I could trust him implicitly with my face. Finally he is very honest, personable and easy to talk to. I recently had a deep plain short scar face lift combined with a platysmaplasty, submental chin liposuction and a lip lift carried out in the same operation. My results are just phenomenal and I am absolutely delighted. He has rejuvenated my face so wonderfully, subtly and naturally in a way that has made such a profound difference to how I look and feel. I personally consider him to be amongst the very best of the facial surgeons working in the UK. My jowls and deep nasolabial folds have been corrected leaving me with a lovely jawline and contour, and my neck laxity has been addressed with the platysmplasty. Finally the liposuction has improved my face beyond words and the lip lift has added the final touch. His suturing and stitching is so delicate that after two weeks the scars are already fading. I am so grateful to Mr Orfanitois and his wonderful team who provide the aftercare. He is beyond gifted and talented, as close to a genius as you could get! I am just amazed at what he has achieved.

    My experience with Mr. Orfaniotis was perfect from start to finish. Sharp, professional and clearly highly clinically capable; the procedure was seamless and the results are better than I had hoped. His office team are also highly responsive and always available. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a consultation in central London.

    Considering the prospect of allowing someone else to slice and remodel my face was a decision not taken easily. One's face will never be the same again. The face, the mirror, the me. For better, for worse. So, to enter into this moment was a kind of marriage to my free will. We see programs like "botched" and the horror for too many people who entrust their souls to others. So, I can only say that I entrusted my future face to Georgios. Three months post-surgery I cannot express how happy I am. Not only do I look younger but the result looks so natural. As the major stakeholder in all of this I understood everything about the process. I felt very safe and supported and when I had any questions, Georgios was always there to help. In the early days post-surgery one is concerned about swelling, bruising and the stitches but I had excellent support. This is not an inexpensive procedure, but I would say that when it come to the face and body one needs to make sure and do the research on surgeons. Lowest cost is not the answer. What price for happiness? The medical profession has a range of "specialist" surgeons however they are not all the same and they need to be well rehearsed in their art. That is the important point. Despite all the scientific and technological abilities there is still an artistry and that is reflected in the face the surgeon creates. It was still me, but a younger me, not someone else. Thank you Georgios.

    Can surgical procedures be enjoyable? They can when you're in the right hands. Dr Orfaniotis and his team are brilliant. I knew exactly what to expect from the procedure, and the care I received at every step has been extraordinary. I am also delighted with the results, having wanted a breast reduction for over 30 years. What's not to love?! Thank you.
