I recently underwent abdominoplasty and Liposuction with Mr Abood and I have found the whole process so far to be extremely professional and patient orientated. From my initial communications with his secretary Justine (who is amazing) to my first consultation with Mr Abood and subsequently my procedure I have been more than happy with everything and although very early days I am thrilled with my results. Would highly recommend. I have felt in very safe hands.

I would firstly like to thank Dr Abood, for his excellent work in preforming upper and lower blepharoplasty on both of my eyes. The outcome has truly exceeded far beyond any expectations . He, along with his secretary Justine Salazar make an amazing team. They are both friendly, professional, delivering a great service, second to none. Justine was always ready to answer any queries and concerns I had, both before and after my surgery. Nothing was was too much trouble, and has truly been like a friend, throughout this time. Weymouth Hospital in London was excellent and its nursing staff were all lovely and provided a great service. After surgery I was offered a choice of food, which was between a wide selection of freshly made omelettes or sandwiches. I choose the smoked salmon and cucumber, which was delicious and was served on a large plate accompanied with salted crisps & a freshly made, tasty salad in a delicious dressing. Along with a very welcome pot of tea. My time at Weymouth Hospital, it was more like staying in a plush hotel. I returned home the same day a few hours after my surgery and strictly followed Dr Aboods instructions. I kept my face dry, and slept with my head elevated and rested completely for a few days, doing nothing at all strenuous. I was surprised at how quickly my face improved on a daily bases. My stitches were taken out within the first week. Obviously there was still bruising at this stage, but I had no pain at all throughout, only a slight feeling of tightness, which was to be expected as my face was still swollen after the surgery. My reasons for having surgery I was due to frequently tripping over things that obstructed my path ahead,( I am ashamed to say I even tripped and fell, whilst carrying my baby grandson) which then made me realise just how serious my eye bag condition had become, so I was determined not to further jeopardise my grandchildren’s safety, when I had sole responsibility to look after them. So, imagine how happy I was, when immediately after the removal of my lower eye bag, (although there was swelling) I could see my feet once again so for this alone, it made the surgery completely worthwhile, in the knowledge I would no longer be putting my grandchildren’s safety at risk. I did have one concern as one upper eyelid was slightly bigger and more swollen then the other, however Dr Abood reassured me they would soon match up and would look much better after the swelling had subsided. Sure enough, in just under 2 weeks my eyes looked symmetrical and felt amazing. I cannot express how happy I am that I went ahead with this surgery, and what a difference Dr Abood has made to restoring my confidence and day to day life. I would 100% recommend choosing Dr Abood for his excellent surgery skills, and the excellent backup support from his lovely secretary, Justine. I cannot thank you both enough.
