“He was meticulous in explaining everything to me and ensured that any concerns I had were allayed. I received a stellar service and the care and attention to detail in my treatment is a testament of his skills; not only surgical but also pastoral. I highly recommend him. I always knew I was in very safe hands. “

    My Young was incredible. He is incredibly knowledgable whilst also mastering the art of precise communication and explaining everything. Mr Young made me feel so comfortable before, during and after the procedure and he was also incredibly professional and friendly. He is one of the best in plastic surgery and I am grateful for his expertise.

    We went into the process with very limited knowledge and understanding. Richard was extremely patient and recommended we have some 3D imaging completed to help us visualise sizing. This I highly recommend to anyone who is unsure about the different sizes of cc implants. Richard is extremely knowledgeable and made great efforts to assure us that the cc we had chosen would be suitable for my smaller frame and reassured us with all of our many questions. Richard's bedside manner was very calm and professional, I always felt extremely safe in his hands. I had my surgery at the King Edward Hospital where I was looked after excellently. Richard saw me before my surgery and also visited me after whilst in hospital. I had several check ups with Richard after my surgery; his aftercare has been exemplary. I can't tell you how happy I am with my finished breasts and cannot recommend Richard highly enough. Such a lovely man.

    Very happy with my experience with Richard Young. His office was very efficient and I was booked in promptly. The facilities at 152 Harley Street are excellent. Mr Young was thorough and clear in his explanation of my treatment options. He carried out minor surgery which was swiftly arranged and I am pleased with the result. Altogether a very good process and outcome: would recommend him highly

    I could not thank Mr Young and his team enough. They were all excellent throughout, from the initial consultation, Sharon's quick responses, the team in the operating theatre who were all very friendly and the nurses I saw in my initial aftercare visit. The work performed by Mr Young is exemplary, and now a few months later, no visible scars when I look, everything is comfortable well healed and I am very happy with the results. If you are considering otoplasty, Mr Young should be at the top of your list of prospective surgeons!

    My first contact with Mr Young was via Sharon, Mr Young's super- efficient yet warm and friendly secretary. Her attitude reflects the high standard that I received throughout my consultations with Mr Young. I always felt confident that I was in the hands of a first class Healthcare Professional. He was very open to my questions, which answered clearly and in full and gave me the support and compassion that I was looking for.

    I found Mr. Richard Young to be a consummate professional, his explanation at all stages was clear and precise, he was considerate in his treatment, giving a full explanation of his findings and ensuring that these were understood. I was very pleased with the minor surgery he carried out and his explanation at that stage whilst he was performing the same. His manner put me at ease, there was no feeling of that is over and that it is end of my concern, just the opposite in fact, advising me of what his recommendations were once the histology of the lump he removed was received and how he thought I should proceed from there on in. If ever I needed any other surgery I would without a moments hesitation make an appointment with him and would recommend him to anyone I knew looking for a Plastic Surgeon.
