    Explanation

    I had some issues with my eyes and was referred to Elizabeth Hawkes at the Benenden hospital. From the very first appointment I was reassured that I had made the perfect choice of surgeon. Ms Hawkes was caring, understanding and extremely professional. She explained everything in a way that is easily understood. As part of my treatment I had a blepharoplasty upper eyelid lift and I am overwhelmed of how much difference it has made. My eyes have opened up and I have a fresher look. I didn’t tell many people, but I get a lot of comments now of how “well I look”. I am really impressed with the results. Surgery was as I expected, as everything was explained beforehand by Ms Hawkes. I was swollen and bruised for a bit after but the one thing that did surprised me was there was NO after pain. In my head I was sure there would be so prepared well with painkillers at the ready, but didn’t need to take any. A week or so after I went back to have the stitches out, again all relatively simple. I am now 5 weeks post op and the scars are virtually invisible, hidden in the natural crease of my eyes. If you are thinking of this procedure, then I would definitely recommend it and without doubt recommend Elizabeth Hawkes to do the surgery.

    I chose Dr Elizabeth Hawkes to have my lips augmented as after seeing her a couple of times, I completely trusted her with my lips! She takes the time to make sure you feel comfortable and talks through what treatment is best for you. I'm so happy with the end results and couldn't recommend her more. She is also a pleasure to visit too!

    I have researched for a long time to find someone I can trust with my upper eyelid surgery. I chose Elizabeth because she is specialised in eyes only and she is passionate about the health of the eye from the inside as well as the cosmetic part of it. At our first meeting she examined the health of my eye and then talked about the desired result of the upper eyelid surgery. She was very professional and knowledgable. I felt I found the perfect person for the procedure. I wanted a natural result to make me look fresh and younger again and she did a perfect job. I couldn’t be happier and I highly recommend her! I have already recommended her to a friend of mine.

    Elizabeth was the perfect consultant: she thought carefully about what would be best for me having discussed at length my needs. Her manner was impeccable: thoughtful, intelligent and I had complete confidence in her expertise. She performed such a brilliant op on my eyes that people remarked how well I looked, but couldn’t tell I had had eye surgery. The whole experience was very positive and I highly recommend her.

    Totally positive from beginning to end. She gave me complete confidence by explaining what she could do, with full details. Aftercare was outstanding, including an extra consultation a couple of weeks after the first one week check. I’m delighted with the results.

    After a number of years researching on upper eyelid blepharoplasty and multiple consultations, I decided to go ahead with the surgery with Dr Elizabeth Hawkes. My eyelids have became heavy due to age and lack of sleep so I had a constant tired look that no expensive cosmetic treatments throughout the years could get rid of. I was not after anything too drastic but I wanted to look more refreshed and get my almond shaped eyes back. Dr Hawkes is very approachable and thorough, she put me at ease with realistic expectations and having seen her previous work and background, I booked myself in for surgery the week after seeing her. It's been only 9 days in but I have not had any discomfort and as the swelling goes down, I can already see her subtle yet effective work. I look younger, have a fresher look overall and most importantly, she's kept my original eye shape. Brilliant work, very pleased with the results.
