My biggest fear was ending up with two balloons on my chest, I was looking for a...

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.
