“I first met Dr Mark several years ago where I got Botox to my enlarged masseter attributed from bruxism. He was one of very few I think that were doing this in the country at the time. I was apprehensive. He immediately allayed my fears with his calm , professional and friendly demeanour. I was so pleased with the long lasting cosmetic results and the comfort left in my jaw. Mark is approachable and very professional, I returned recently in December 2020 after several years of not being able to come back due to pregnancy or breastfeeding and again a very positive experience. I will always return back to him and his team. His secretary Carol is such a pleasure to communicate with too.“

    Dr Beechey-Newman, my cancer surgeon (a renowned breast surgeon in London) had recommended Dr Mark Ho-Asjoe to me for reconstructive surgery after a mastectomy. I saw Dr Beechey-Newman again yesterday and he was extremely happy with the results; he noted my breasts were very symmetrical. Needless to say, I am very happy too! Dr Mark is kind, caring and professional. He listens carefully to you and I feel very comfortable talking to him. He is realistic and will advise on what could or could not be achieved. He is very knowledgeable and has many years experience behind him. I highly recommend him to anyone. He genuinely cares for his patients. And the aftercare is amazing. I would just like to quickly add that Carol, his PA is lovely. She is most kind and caring. I really enjoyed talking to her.

    Mark Ho-Asjoe performed a complex rhinoplasty to address a deviated septum of some 40 years and generally improve the look of my nose in August 2019. Although still swollen I am very pleased with the result. I had my operation at Holly Oak which was superb. From the initial consultation through to my post op review Mark and his team were highly professional and supportive. At the initial consultation Mark carefully listened to what I wanted and sensitively advised me what could and could not be achieved. I was then offered an operation date within a few weeks and all went very smoothly. Unlike some other surgeons Mark quotes fully inclusive prices for procedures which relieves any concerns around additional/hidden costs. I found Mark very approachable, considerate (even sorting out my pressure socks before the op) and with an excellent sense of humour. If I have a need for other procedures I will not hesitate to contact Mark.

    Mr Ho-Asjoe put me at ease from the outset. He is friendly, welcoming and professional. He took the time to find out exactly what I hoped to achieve. He listened to my fears and concerns and gave me all the possible options I had as well as the results to expect. True to his word, I am very happy with the results. All the way through the experience from first meeting to after care, he has been considerate, patient, respectful, and honest. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.

    I have been seeing Mr Ho-Asjoe over the last few years for injections and fillers. Reluctant to take the surgery route I decided to have PDO threading in January to see if I could get some more improvement to my jawline and jowls. I was a little nervous beforehand, but as soon as Mr Ho-Asjoe started working I felt completely at ease. The discomfort was minimal and the results have been brilliant. I definitely look more refreshed and my skin feels thicker and firmer. I highly recommend Mr Ho-Asjoe for this procedure. He did a great job. Thank you!

    I recently underwent rhinoplasty surgery with Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe September 2018. Mr Ho-Asjoe set about explaining the procedure in detail and reassuring me of the process from start to finish. I particularly liked his manner and honesty in explaining how best to restructure my new nose. He was reassuring of the process from start to finish and was always available to answer any questions or queries following my consultation. I found him to be extremely helpful in arranging surgery, hospital and nursing care. His whole team (Anaesthetist and PA Carol) were also extremely helpful and supportive to allay any fears and nerves that I had when I went into hospital. The BMW Weymouth Street Hospital was a very good hospital. Clean, efficient with a nursing team who were second to none. Even the receptionist went out of her way to make me feel relaxed. Following surgery, I recovered exceptionally well. There was no excessive bruising, bleeding or pain. The most uncomfortable thing was the nose plug that has to stay in following surgery until the following morning. That is a little uncomfortable but certainly not painful. The nose splint was removed after six days and I am overwhelming thrilled. Nothing phoney or fake but a normal nose with great definition. I had a particularly prominent bump on the bridge of my nose so I am delighted that I now have a straight bridge shaped ever so slightly so it is not too severe. I am so much more confident and happy with my new nose. I would recommend Mr Ho-Asjoe without exception. He is a truly wonderful professional surgeon, gentleman and a credit to his profession
