I’m so glad that I did my research and chose to put myself in the safe hands of Harley Medical Group. From day one when I first booked my consultation they have explained everything clearly and given me many options so I didn’t feel pressured into anything. I have received the upmost respect and politeness from all the colleagues which I have come into contact with whether that’s on the phone or face to face. I would definitely recommend Harley medical to anyone looking for plastic surgery, the big day is approaching and I can’t wait! I know I’m going to be in safe hands :)
Everyone made me feel so at ease and everything ran so smoothly. Dr G is incredible and has exceeded my expectations in every way. I am 2 weeks post op and even with all the swelling I am 100% happy with my rhinoplasty, he was realistic with what he could do and completely honest with what was achievable. All of the staff in the Southampton clinic that I have come across in person and on the phone have all been lovely and caring. The hospital staff were amazing and the nurses looked after me SO well. Just can't thank Dr G and everyone enough!
My whole experience from the first consultation to my surgery was fantastic, the nurses made me feel relaxed and at ease when I was waiting to go in for surgery. I am very happy with my results, De Leo was my surgeon she was amazing couldn't be happier.
Great experience. Extremely professional and genuine all the way through. I am so happy with the outcome. Very relaxed and put at ease all the way through. Would recommend to anyone. Especially to people who have never had surgery before. Thank you and keep doing what you do.
The Harley Medical Group have been by far the most amazing team. My whole experience has been incredible from consultation through to surgery and even in aftercare. They genuinely care about me and my recovery and results. I am ecstatic about my results too. Anyone considering surgery then look no further.
