“Dr Bast has given me my confidence back . After many years of hating my nose , I had my primary rhinoplasty with a different surgeon back in 2013 and I was unhappy with the results . I went to see Dr Bast in 2020 and he performed my complicated revision rhinoplasty . I am extremely happy with the results . My breathing is very much improved and for the first time in my life , I can say I love my nose! For me , this surgery has been life changing and I owe that to Dr Bast and his team . Dr Bast is clearly very passionate about what he does, his knowledge and experience is impressive . He is very friendly and always honest about what is best for you . The after care I have received has also been outstanding . Once the surgery was complete , Dr Bast was happy to follow up and ensure everything was healing well. Dr Bast’s entire team were a pleasure to deal with , particularly Julia Brighton , who is extremely efficient and lovely to deal with .They are with you every step of the way ! I would absolutely recommend Dr Bast as a surgeon. “
