The initial consultation was prompt, friendly and open. After an diagnosis for a Basal Cell Carcinoma arrangements were made for treatment at an out-patients clinic to have the lesion excised. Treatment took place on time and both Mr Lim and his staff in the operating suite were first class. As a patient I was kept informed of each and every stage of the procedure by Mr Lim with the operating staff providing continual reassurance. The application of the anesthetic was a little uncomfortable but once it had taken effect the excision was painless. The follow up some eight days later was of a similar vain, with Mr Lim leading by example. Staff were friendly and courteous Mr Lim explaining to staff and I what he was doing in suture removal and what he had done in the operation. The whole experience has been very positive.

Have you ever dreamed about the ideal surgery, liposuction somewhere or those breast implants- an overhaul in self-perception, all your bodily doubts dispersed like migratory birds; but, don't want to start looking for a knowledgeable, experienced, highly gifted surgeon? A doctor who will listen to exactly what you want regarding that special cosmetic job, who would be more than happy to do what you want as well as offer advice to compliment the procedure in a way you never thought possible? Well enter Dr Philip Lim, a consummate professional at the top of his game and a delightful and friendly person- to boot. There is 'Botched' - doctors who are so skilled they can, salvage, create and ultimately beautify the most unfortunate cases with their surgical magic - Dr Lim does the same; the amazing turnarounds, the confidence-boosting faith restored, after an undesirable result; Doctor Lim is on your doorstep geographically speaking and he's one of the best, like Dr Nassif and Dr ...? No need to travel, just make that call. I am ecstatic about my breast reduction.
