    My decision for a breast reduction was not taken lightly but once I started my journey Mr Samer Saour made it very easy. He made me feel totally at ease from the very professional and explained the whole process clearly. He has a very kind manner and gives you honest prediction on results of the operation. I felt the aftercare was exceptional by all members of the team. I’m so impressed with the results. I can recommend Mr Samer Saour to anyone.

    Explanation

    I had a breast augmentation with Mr Saour (implants). After having children, I'd managed to get most of my body back to the same shape and size it was in my 20s but my breasts had completely deflated. My adult children told me this was not the time to go for the cheapest option, and made me promise to find a good surgeon! Mr Saour did an excellent job, leaving me with a natural look, with my pre-children figure restored and slightly enhanced! You would not guess that I've had a breast augmentation unless you were told. Mr Saour is a calm person who listened to my wishes and did an excellent job. He had a clear view of what would work well for me; actually I requested larger breast implants but he said he would not do that because he did not think it would produce a good result. He chose the final implant size during surgery after trying different options to see which would work best for me. He said he'd listen to my preferences, but as surgeon he had to make the final decision when he could see what he was working with. I respected this approach. In the event, he was completely right and I have been absolutely delighted with the results. I was on an online support group for breast augmentation with thousands of women worldwide, and my recovery was much faster than average. I didn't need the strong painkillers that so many women on the group used, and I didn't get much bruising at all. My recovery was smooth and I felt well, able to manage with over-the-counter painkillers from the morning after surgery and I only needed those for a couple of days. I believe this was due to Mr Saour's gentle and careful technique, and careful choice of implant size. I felt strongly that I did not want a breast lift. Mr Saour suggested the alternative of a Dual Plane approach which can help with 'deflated' breasts after having children. This has worked out wonderfully and I'm delighted to have been able to avoid lift incisions, while still getting a great look. I was very nervous as I'd never had surgery before, but on the day Mr Saour was very reassuring and the hospital staff were great, and actually it was all a really positive experience. I can't overstate how happy I am with the outcome. My recovery was smooth and, nearly a year later, my enhanced breasts definitely feel like they are my own. I could easily forget that I'd had surgery - they look and feel so natural!

    I had a breast reduction just over a year ago. I found Dr Saour to be very attentive and very honest. He managed my expectations and told me what was possible. He was great at explaining my aftercare as well and we had regular check ups. He explained everything thoroughly on the day of the surgery and made me comfortable. I’ve just had my one year check up, I’m so happy with the results and the scars and barely visible. Very pleased with everything!

    I’ve always been fairly anxious when meeting people, especially when it’s medically related. But Dr Samer Saour has always been reassuring, positive and friendly. He was always completely honest about expectations and I never left his office or presence feeling unsure or worried. He answered any question I had, be it silly or understandable, and despite what I can imagine is an extremely busy schedule I never felt rushed out the door and he always took the time I needed. I would do everything all over again in a heartbeat I feel that confident about him.

    Mr Saour was incredibly professional and honest - he clearly explained what was feasible and what was not. Guidance regarding surgery and after care was provided and clearly detailed what I could and could not do. Any questions I asked both pre and post surgery were responded to promptly, I felt supported each step of the way. At every check up post surgery, each nurse commented on how neat Mr Saour had been. I am so pleased with the results, I could not have asked for more. I have already recommended Mr Saour to a friend.
