I started this journey through the NHS. I had little confidence in the eye consultant I was sent to and decided to seek a second opinion.
I was referred to Sabrina. On first meeting her, wow, instant connection and a feeling of confidence that this young woman knew exactly what she was talking about and understood everything I said. She has this manner that makes you want her for a friend,... more
I had an upper bleph with laser resurfacing in December with Dr de Silva. It's still early days and the final result will not be evident for a while but so far I'm very happy with how my eyes look and I've healed extremely well. The procedure was carried out using local anaesthetic but without sedation and I have to say that it was completely painless. Of course it's normal to be anxious... more
Mrs Sabrina Shah-Desai talked me through everything and was very honest about the outcome which I am relieved to say was a great success. Sabrina has enabled me to regain my confidence for which I will eternally grateful. Sabrina is always at the other of the phone and is very caring and understanding even for the smallest concerns. I cannot recommend her enough. 10/10

In my 20s, father and paternal grandmother have bags that continue to get more prominant as time goes by. Started developing them in my teens and have gotten to the point where each week people tell me I look tired, ill or sleep deprived. Aside from other's rudeness, I am conscious of them myself as I love my eyes and they are my favourite feature - just without the accessories!

I made an appointment with Mr Raman Malhotra on recommendation after developing recurrent ptosis of my right eyelid. Mr Raman Malhotra put me at ease and explained all the pros and cons with me before I had surgery. He has a very nice bedside manner and is an excellent surgeon.
I have had surgery on the 3rd of November and am very pleased with the result. more
I spent time researching procedures and looking for an excellent surgeon.I was recommended Mr.Malholtra and went to him discuss upper and lower blepharoplasty. He identified that I also needed ptosis repair.
He talked me through all aspects of the procedures. I left certain that I wanted to go ahead with the procedures and confident that Mr. Malholtra was the specialist to use.
The procedures... more
Mr Raman Malhotra performed the surgery to remove my 'eye bags' under local anaesthetic. This was completely pain free. From my first appointment and through the period after my surgery, Mr Malhotra was very supportive. After only 10 days the result is already excellent. I am absolutely delighted. more
For a long time my left eye had really bothered me. I decided to do something about it and found Mrs Sabrina Shah-Desai online. I was very impressed with everything I read and arranged a consultation. From the consult to the surgery Sabrina has been amazing. A true professional. The surgery has made the world of difference to me and if I were to need anything else doing I wouldn't hesitate to... more
What I wanted to do was to have a procedure that wouldn't take too much "down time", would not be too painful, and after a couple days "hiding" I could go out with confidence! In fact, I even considered not telling my husband, as he travels quite a bit and he is also quite squeemish.I did quite a lot of research beforehand and visited three surgeons before deciding on Mr M, mainly... more
After years of concern about my tired looking eye bags and some extensive research I eventually contacted Mrs Shah Desai for a consultation. I initially felt more inclined to go to an oculoplastic specialist rather than a general PS and I immediately felt reassured by her obvious extensive knowledge and experience of rectifying this type of problem. She meticulously listened to my wants and... more

I highly recommend Dr De Silva. After seeing some other surgeons who made me feel pressured, I felt at ease with Dr De Silva and was under no pressure at all to go through with the procedure. I was very anxious prior to the surgery however Dr De Silva has a very calming manner and his nurse in particular was wonderful in helping me feel at ease and answering any questions I had (no matter how... more

My eyelids had become droopy giving me a tired look and reducing my visual field. I decided it was time to get something done about it. After enquiring with my Insurance Company I was given a recommendation to my specialist and went for an initial consultation when I was given full information and put very much at my ease. more
Having reached 60 I decided I'd become a little tired looking. I'd thought about having my eyes done but had always been slightly scared at the prospect. Then I did some research and found Dr De Silva. After my initial consultation I immediately felt that I had found someone who understood what I wanted. Six weeks on and no-one would know even know I've had surgery (not even my best friend... more
I had very bad bags forming under my eyelids which made me look tired all the time. So after a few years of indecisiveness and research I found the a surgeon who specialized in facial surgery & who was trained in the USA, which is the Mecca for Cosmetic surgery. DR. JULIAN DE SILVA was the one surgeon I found to be most qualified in the UK for me to put my trust in. What also drew me to Dr De... more
The experience was first class from the initial consultation to the final follow up appointment. I carried out A LOT of research before undertaking this procedure and I was not disappointed with my decision to choose Dr de Silva. He is an extremely talented surgeon and I am very happy with the results! He is also a lovely man and he (and his team) will put your mind at rest and also answer any... more

My experience with Upper Lid Surgery and TCA Peel treatment made by Dr. Julian De Silva in February 2013 was much better than I expected. Having the treatment was absolutely relaxing and the difference is amazing.
Dear Dr. De Silva, When I first came to you for consultation I was a bit sceptical as I already had done my Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid) two years before at age 47 with a good surgeon on the recommendation of another good doctor..and the result was poor.
One day I was reading good things about you in a Magazine and decided to check you out. As soon as I met you and Anita I had a good... more
