I researched for over a year to try and find a solution to the problem with my dark under eyes, and finally after reading many stories I found Raman Malhotra on Real Self.
I noticed there were a couple of bad reviews on him which started from one girl's thread, so I was a bit 50/50 to whether or not I should proceed with my consultation as it cost £200 which is pretty expensive. I couldn't find any other professional surgeon specialising in eyes that I liked the work of, so I thought I would take a risk because the good reviews out weighed the bad.
I was SOOOO happy I did choose Dr Raman Malhotra , because I couldn't have even dreamed of a more perfect consultation. The moment I stepped inside his office I felt welcome and greeted in a genuine way.
Everything was very professional and detailed. I have a big medical history and a lot of medical problems, but Dr Raman Malhotra took his time to address everything. Because of my allergy to bees, he told me that it was best to under fill the eyes on my first time so the dissolvable solution would not be needed as it was too risky.
Dr Raman Malhotra was very patient of my needle phobia, and kindly played some background music to calm my nerves and let me close my eyes so I didn't have to see the needles. The nurse was so lovely and really helped to take the edge off of my fear. She talke to me the whole time and I didn't pannic and cry like I normally do with needles.
I had to ice under the eye area before the restylane was going to be injected. It was a very strange feeling when the solution was going in. It wasn't a typical sensation of needles. I heard weird clicking and crunching noises. It was very bizzare for me since it was my first ever experience of any injectibles to the face. It wasn't really painful like I expected. Just weird!!!
Overall the experience was pleasant and calming. I was allowed to get up in between each session to check how my eyes looked in the mirror. I could see instant results. It was amazing. My mum came with me and she was impressed too.
I was in the clinic for 1.5 hours, so that just shows how much care was taken with my consultation and procedure. I cannot wait to go back again for my top up in a couple of months time. I will add some images of my progress so you can see the results.
I would highly recommend Dr Raman Malhotra to everyone based in London and the UK. He is the lovliest guy I have ever met, and I hope my review will help others that may have been put off by the negative comments on here.
