Mr Karoo instantly made me feel at ease from the first consultation I knew I was going to have my breast augmentation at last. I liked the way he talked about ratio and keeping it natural which I hadn't found with previous consultations elsewhere and Im absolutely over the moon with the results!

Best decision I ever made was making an appt with Dr Karoo

I am now 5 months post op and I am over the moon with the results, I have looked at hundreds of before&after pics and my results are the kind that I prayed for. Dr Karoo was amazing, I can't recommend him or Sancta Maria team enough. I had two consultations before and I have had at least 4 post op too. My biggest fear was ending up with two balloons on my chest, I was looking for a...

After thorough research for a reputable surgeon to carry out a lower blephoraplasty I finally decided on Mr Karoo due to his exceptional credentials. I found him to be a professional yet affable man who went to great lengths to explain the procedure and the realistic outcome I could expect.

A truly wonderful surgeon

I had a blepharoplasty and cyst removal with Mr Karoo and he did an amazing job. He is a truly wonderful surgeon. He is very professional but kind, approachable and you feel very safe in his hands. I would not hesitate to see Mr Karoo again and would recommend him to anyone. I would like to thank Mr Karoo and his team for the 1st class care and treatment that I received.
