“Mr Orfaniotis is not only a skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeon but also very approachable, caring and supportive. I had 5 hours of surgery to rejuvenate my face and neck and I am delighted with the results. I still look like me, just a younger version which is exactly what I wanted. I would encourage anyone thinking about having surgery to go ahead , it's life changing!“

    I had a really wonderful experience with Dr. Orfaniotis. Based on his excellent reviews, previous patients' results, and really helpful medical secretary, Lian, I actually booked my surgery date before my first consultation as I was on a tight schedule and, trusting my gut, didn't want to miss the opportunity. At my first consultation, Dr. Orfaniotis confirmed my instincts and was not only incredibly kind and professional but understood exactly what I wanted, took into consideration my concerns, and made me feel both comfortable and excited about the process. We agreed to a final size a few weeks later over the phone, where Dr. Orfaniotis happily calmed my nerves again. The day of the procedure went smoothly and the clinic staff were excellent. Lian kindly checked up on me the following day and was always very responsive to any questions I had. To summarise my overall experience, I focused more on how exciting it all was and on counting down the days till I would get the 'finished product' rather than worrying about undergoing surgery and this speaks greatly to Dr. Orfaniotis and his team's talents. The whole time I felt like I was in safe, caring hands and, as expected, I am exceptionally pleased with my results.

    I had always been conscious of my long philtrum and thin, inward upper lip. I did not want to do lip fillers because I knew with my lip shape the results wouldn't be great. Eventually I opted for an upper lip lift and went ahead with it 6 weeks ago with Dr.Orfaniotis. The procedure was easy and Dr.Orfaniotis was very patient with my questions and comments during the surgery. My upper lip now looks in harmony with my lower one and the shorter philtrum has created a more balanced look in my face. Everyone who knows about my procedure loves my new lip and, those who don't know about the surgery, tell me I look so fresh. It's a subtle, unnoticeable change but an effective one.

    Explanation

    Patient seen for:
    I have always been self-conscious of my thin upper lip. Having tried lip filler and been unhappy with the results I became interested in the lip lift procedure and the more natural results it can yield. However, I did have concerns about having a surgery on my face and the permanent change it would produce. Because of these fears I did extensive research into finding the right plastic surgeon which led me to Mr. Orfaniotis (and also to his extremely helpful and solicitous medical secretary Lian). During my initial consultation we discussed exactly what I wanted to achieve with the surgery and what was possible with the anatomy of my face. I left the consultation with realistic expectations and absolute confidence in Mr. Orfaniotis; eager to book the surgery. On the day of the surgery I was incredibly nervous but Mr. Orfaniotis (and the lovely nurse at HCA, the Shard) put me completely at ease and was incredibly considerate and empathetic throughout. As soon as I looked in the mirror after the surgery I was absolutely over the moon with the results and the extraordinary change such a small operation had made to my face. I can't recommend Mr. Orfaniotis highly enough. He is not only incredibly skilled and knowledgable but also exceptionally kind and caring. He has the experience and expertise to tailor your lip lift to the unique proportions of your face to ensure the end result looks seamless. This subtle change to my upper lip has made a significant change to my confidence and I would urge anyone considering this procedure to book a consultation with Mr. Orfaniotis.

    Highly recommend Mr Orfaniotis! In very skilled and good hands at all times. Having my breasts reduced from an E/F cup to a small C was a dream come true for me after many years of contemplation and suffering. Mr Orfaniotis is highly skilled, very professional, friendly, and kind. He answered all my questions very comprehensively and with great patience. This was already apparent on my first very informative consultation, where he thoroughly and realistically explained the whole procedure, his approach and what he will be able to achieve to me with great expertise. This gave me the reassurance and courage I needed to brave into the surgery and to feel in good hands at all times. At this point I also want to mention Mr Orfaniotis’ secretary, the wonderful Ms Lian Yarlett who was not only fabulous in guiding me through the whole administrative process, but also very friendly, flexible, approachable, and understanding throughout. 5 weeks into recovery I can truly say that I never want to look back and I am more than happy with the outcome. Mr Orfaniotis is a master of his art! My breasts have the absolute right size for my shape, not too small and not too big. They are very nicely shaped and symmetrical, and the very neat incisions already are beginning to look like fine scar lines are healing very well. He also took in consideration my wish for a smaller areola around my nipples and positioned them perfectly. The healing procedure, although quite painful in the beginning, couldn’t have proceeded any better. No inflammation, no complications and daily improvement. It wasn’t an easy step to take, but a life changing one and I’d gladly do it again for the improvement in quality of life gained largely outweighs the few more difficult and uncomfortable weeks of recovery. I will always be very grateful to have found such a caring surgeon in Mr Orfaniotis and can only highly recommend him.

    I have been thinking about having a breast reduction since I was 18 years old (I am now in my late twenties) and have spent a considerable amount of time extensively researching an experienced surgeon whom I completely trusted. I had met with a few surgeons before coming across Mr Orfaniotis and decided to set up a consultation with him as he has extensive reconstructive and plastic surgery experience and practices as a Consultant in both the NHS and the private sector as well as performing humanitarian work. I automatically knew he had to be an excellent surgeon and as well as a good person (which is very important to me). Once I met Mr Orfaniotis, I knew immediately I wanted him to perform my surgery. My mum and I had so many questions and Mr Orfaniotis answered all our questions realistically and honestly, which was appreciated. As a young woman, I naturally had many reservations about a breast reduction; scars, size, nipple placement etc, however, I am only 3 weeks post op and my scars look fab (so far) and I am happy with the size and nipple placement of my new breasts. Overall, I have found Mr Orfaniotis to be meticulous, professional and friendly throughout this whole process and would highly recommend him as a surgeon. Since my operation a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders (quite literally!) and it’s the best decision I have ever made, if you’ve been thinking about a breast reduction for a while (like me) just do it!! I also have to give a shout out to Lian, Mr Orfaniotis’s secretary who is extremely attentive and always at the end of the phone should you have any queries.

    I was seen by Mr Orfaniotis for a consultation regarding a procedure he is due to perform on me. He was incredibly personable with an impeccable bedside manner. He was mindful that I felt comfortable throughout the duration of my consult. I had an issue from a previous surgery and was in a great amount of pain when I arrived for the appointment and Mr Orfaniotis helped me with this on the spot for which I am so grateful to him. He had a calm and collected manner and I felt trusting and comfortable with him the entire time. I am very grateful to have made contact with him and found him to carry out my impending surgery.

    Highly recommend Dr Orfaniotis for liplift. I was so scared to have any surgery on my face but I was really self conscious about the length of my philtrum. After doing lots of research I decided to go ahead with Dr Orfaniotis . I’m so glad I chose to go with him. My whole experience has been very positive and I’m extremely happy with my results. It’s only been 5 weeks and my scar is barley noticeable. On top he is such a nice person and really made me feel safe/relaxed during the procedure. My aftercare has also been very positive, at any point I had any concerns/questions both Mr Orfaniotis and Lian (secretary) were in touch straight away.
