    Dr Bast is excellent! After two unsuccessful rhinoplasties that left me with breathing issues and a crooked dorsum, I knew I needed a third surgery. As I’m originally from the US, I flew back home to see some of the world’s top rhinoplasty specialists, but I loved Dr Bast’s approach the most - he carefully considered my history and we worked together to come up with the best solution for me. I’m now three months post-op and not only has my breathing improved, but my nose looks so much better! Dr Bast took his time with me, never made me feel rushed and always went out of his way to make sure my questions were answered. Highly recommend.

    My experience was excellent. I I had done a lot of research prior to my septorhinoplasty, and was adamant i needed to feel 100percent sure i had the right surgeon, and i felt that confidence straight away. He is upfront about what is achievable and we both understood each other. He listens and pays attention to what you want, and explains everything thoroughly with exceptional detail. My procedure went excellently and i can only rate his expertise as outstanding. Post-operatively everyone was astounded by the speed of my recovery and i am so happy with my results. It has been life changing.

    Mr Bast is simply a cut above the rest. After suffering from sinus issues, breathing difficulties and nose bleeds for over a year, I was terrified of the prospect of having surgery for multiple reasons. Having spoken to two ENT surgeons previously, Mr Bast was the only one who reassured me of my concerns. I underwent sinus surgery and a septorhinoplasty to correct my anterior deviated septum. The work he did without even having to make an external incision is amazing. I only needed a week off work to recover and I am pleased with the outcomes of the surgery. Mr Bast is professional, highly competent and also a super kind human being. Thank you for helping me to breathe again.

    Mr Bast was excellent in all aspects; I underwent a rhinoplasty and couldn't be happier with the results. Both surgery and the recovery went well with all stages having been explained to me beforehand. I feel completely confident now and absolutely love my nose! The whole process from start to finish was made worry-free with the excellent care provided and detailed morphing prior to surgery that I was able to analyse and consult on with Mr Bast.

    Snoring problems Deviated septum Septoplasty Rhinoplasty (Nose Reshaping)
    I initially visited Dr Bast due to issues with breathing through my nose (I had previously had a rhinoplasty procedure 10 years ago with another surgeon but didn’t correct my breathing at the time) Dr Bast was extremely approachable and understanding and took the time to explain the cause of the issue, proposed procedure etc as simply and accurately as possible for me to comprehend. I instantly felt I was in good hands and was reassured. We subsequently agreed on a revision Septorhinoplasty. Prior to the operation Dr Bast knew I would be nervous so he offered for me to have a meeting or call with the anaesthetist prior to the surgery to reassure me. (Something which really put me at ease) Dr Bast’s PA, Julia, did a wonderful job at sending over all the required paperwork and copy of consultation notes within a timely manner. She was also always on hand, friendly and very efficient. I chose to have my operation at the Weymouth Street hospital as it was closest to my home and I cannot have been more pleased with the experience and staff there that day. Again, I was looked after and attended to thoroughly and generally the day ran very smoothly and efficiently. An hour prior to surgery, Dr Bast came to my room to reconfirm the details of the procedure and post op next steps, his description of all the next steps were 100% accurate!! I had no pain whatsoever post op, only some slight discomfort and only some swelling which lasted a couple of days. I returned to work after 2 weeks & had follow up appointments with Dr Bast thereafter where we reviewed the progress, confirmed next steps and he patiently answered all my list of questions! In summary, an excellent experience and I am so pleased with the result. Even just after a week post op I could already breathe so much better. There’s been no more snoring or headaches since & the swelling from the cosmetic part of the operation has almost fully subsided 6 months on. I am thrilled with the outcome. I cannot thank Dr Bast enough, he is a truly passionate surgeon with his patients at the heart of everything he does.

    Dr. Bast talked me through everything in our consultation, inc. what would & wouldn't work (even if it meant a cheaper OP) and didn't play any potential side effects down. He has been on hand to answer my endless questions (honestly near on 20 emails) since & is truly a wizard.

    Septoplasty
    In 2018, Florian performed a septoplasty/turbinate reduction procedure to fix my deviated septum. At the consultation, he patiently listened to my questions/concerns and made me feel at ease with how the procedure would be carried out with detailed explanations. The surgery was quick. I had no pain or bleeding which, according to my research,is commonly reported by patients after this type of procedure. I only had very minor discomfort for a few days, which was relieved with medication/nasal sprays he had prescribed. The nurses at the hospital were pleasantly surprised that I didn’t need the cotton pads (put in my nostrils to stop any blood flow) changed overnight. They also commented highly on his neatness and the skill he applied during the procedure. Two years on, I am still pleased with the results (breathing eased, snoring minimised,sleep more refreshed) and highly satisfied with his level of care,professionalism, after care, accessibility and would without a doubt recommend his services to anyone needing them.

    Mr Bast has given me the ability to breathe properly and on top of giving me a functional nose he’s also made it look absolute incredible, I can’t thank him enough. From our first meeting I knew I was in good hands, through out he was able to explain exactly what was going to happen (without over complicating it) and perfectly describe the outcome (it almost sounded too good to be true) but what he promised is what I received. I never once felt nervous about trusting him with such a central feature to my appearance and he has always made me feel welcome seeing him in appointments and welcome to come back at any time should I have any further questions. I would recommend Mr Bast in a heartbeat
