“I had a lip lift procedure with Mr Orfaniotis in April 2022, following an initial consultation via Zoom to assess my suitability, and a follow up appointment in his rooms at The Shard in London. I'm 73 years old and felt that my long philtrum and thinning top lip made me look even older. He agreed and assured me the procedure would result in a significant improvement. I was fully informed about what to expect and I underwent what seemed to be a textbook procedure on the day. Mr Orfaniotis is a very highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon who does other types of surgeries, including facial reconstruction, so I had every expectation that my outcome would be successful - and it has been. I'm now 5 months post op and the length of my philtrum has been reduced from 22mm to 14mm. The scar is hardly noticeable, and still improving week by week. I had some discomfort in the week following the procedure but that was alleviated with over-the-counter pain relief. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr Orfaniotis - apart from his great skill, he's the most charming and personable man and you will be delighted with your choice. “

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.

Mr. Orfaniotis is an excellent plastic surgeon. I’m completely delighted with the results of my recent Deep Plane Face and Neck Lift and I cannot praise him and his work enough. I had a strong positive feeling when I first met Mr. Orfaniotis and he did not disappoint. He was very easy to chat with and very clear in our discussions about what the surgery and recovery would involve. Everything he described has proved true, especially that I would look refreshed and younger in a very naturalistic way. Highly recommend!

Dr Georgios Orfaniotis is an outstandingly sensitive and understanding person, which translates into an incredible surgical skill. With a team of organised and caring people supporting his work, the entire process could not have been anymore rewarding as a patient. I am for the first time, truly confident and at peace with my facial appearance, to the point now where I'm not even having to think or worry about how I look anymore. I smile more than I ever have and accept positivity for myself without doubt. As the review only allows you to choose one procedure, I should state that Dr Orfaniotis performed a lip lift, liposuction to my jaw/chin and abdomen area, then fat grafting using this fat to my cheeks and temples. The idea was to balance my lip size and evenness, and improve the proportions of my face by reducing prominence below the chin, and increase definition in the upper face. Overall these procedures have made me look younger and more feminine, have improved my smile and tooth display, and significantly balanced my lip size and shape. To give some history to my particular complex situation - I have had previous extensive facial surgery to address bone proportions and features (forehead, nose, chin, hairline & hair loss) and although completely successful, I'd never achieved contentment with my face as a whole, or felt like I ever looked my age. Even as far as just never feeling "pretty", whatever that may mean to an individual. I take great care of my health, skin and hair, and when your face doesn't reflect this in any way, your personality can start to feel a bit wasted. Sad though that is in the grand scheme of things, that's just my experience. I'd had lip fillers for several years in my early 20s which had migrated and then been dissolved years after. This had left already quite thin and uneven lips looking worse than they did naturally. When my trusted practitioner told me last year that I might be better off speaking with a surgeon about the lower half of my face, I really thought there might be merit in that advice. I organised 3 consultations, of which George was the first. Immediately, even though I didn't know exactly what I wanted, he was able to guide me through my thoughts and show to me the areas that detract from the overall aesthetics of my face. I really appreciated his ability to be honest and explain exactly what he saw - as this put words and meaning to emotions that I felt. He then of course was able to explain what his surgical plans of action would be, ensuring that it made sense and was suitable for me. I went away feeling fully informed and supported, which allowed me to gather my thoughts for the next consultation with a different surgeon. Lian, his secretary, was always easy to contact to organise things - and kept me up-to-date by email automatically. ' At that next appointment, I unfortunately didn't receive the same level of detail, care or understanding. The suggestions were similar to what Dr Orfaniotis had said, but with none of the personable interaction that truly made it feel like you could trust him implicitly with what he was suggesting. I organised a second consultation with George at this point, having a couple of weeks between each to think about things. What really impressed me is that George was able to listen to what the other surgeon had suggested - explain to me why some procedures were not suitable for me, or wouldn't achieve what he thinks is best for me - and also incorporate one of the suggestions he hadn't thought of himself, as he agreed it would actually offer further improvement to his intended procedure. This really showed to me how well he listened, and was in no rush to get me to the procedure, making sure that we were in total agreement beforehand. I went away then knowing that he would be my surgeon. A few weeks before, I met with Dr Hanieh Asadi over zoom, who explained that she provides the pre and post care contact for George, and that she would remove my stitches for me and check the wounds 1 week after surgery. She was easy to contact anytime by email or phone if I had any questions, and I really liked this additional angle of support surrounding a surgical procedure. She is an expert when it comes to scar care and healing, and nutritional health and fitness advice both before and after the operation. The procedure itself was quick and easy, just a couple of hours. I was well prepared and everyone at the Cadogan Clinic were exceptional in their roles. The nurses and anaesthetist especially went out of their way to provide a calm experience. My recovery went exactly as expected and how it had been explained to me prior. I followed all instructions but never hesitated to call or email Lian or Dr Asadi if I had any concerns or questions. Anything I'd asked was always answered either immediately or within several hours. At the stitch removal, everything was healing well and there were no concerns. I went back to work after two weeks. The most discomfort was in the liposuction areas, which was to be expected. Facially, there was barely any discomfort. Even after two weeks swelling had reduced enough that I looked almost normal back at work. I saw George face to face for a check-up just under 4 weeks after the procedure. It was great to see him and express my delight at the results so far, and to see equally how pleased he was with his work and the improvements it'd made for me. He is really dedicated and invested in every patient and it shows. Despite everything going absolutely perfectly - I did develop a minor complication with the lip lift scar directly under my nose. This happened between 6-8 weeks after the procedure. I noticed it was sore when massaging, and there was a small prominence looking a bit like a couple of spots or blisters. This was right at the join of the nose columella and the top lip. I emailed Dr Asadi and sent photos through - that same day she had discussed this with George and got me a prescription for an ointment. This was posted to me within 2 days. I used it for 1 week and emailed further pictures after this time. Dr Asadi then called me again to say that Dr Orfaniotis would rather see me in person to assess the area. Just 3 days after that phone call I had an appointment scheduled for me in London to see him face to face again. This was all made so easy between the 3 of them (Lian on the secretary side), and I couldn't fault the level of care in any way. At this appointment, George simply removed an offending piece of stitching which my body was reacting to as it hadn't disappeared on its own. This was just last week, now, 6 days on the area is pretty much already healed and looks perfect. I cannot recommend enough Dr Orfaniotis and his team, he tells you that the exceptional care continues after the procedure, and this is certainly true. I look forward to seeing him again for my 4 month check up! I have recommended several people and family members to him for consultation, and I would certainly see him again in the future. A further note is necessary I feel about his scar work. I didn't have any concerns about my nose, but George said that since he would be using the existing scar from my previous nose job for my lip lift, he could probably improve the definition of the nostrils and nasal sill. WOW, did he ever! It looks like I've had another perfecting nose job as a secondary side-effect of the procedure. His eye for facial aesthetics is undeniable and the balance he's created for me is truly a work of art. Thank you for everything Dr Orfaniotis, and thank you to your entire team.
