“I am so so very fortunate to be in the care of Mr Kasem. He is an outstanding surgeon and the level of care and attention I have had during my breast cancer treatment has been on a level I have not experienced with other practitioners. He is calm, caring and conscientious and I am just glad that i can count Mr Kasem as part of my cancer care team. Follow up appointments and consultations were prompt, questions were clearly answered and explained and my emails with concerns at early hours of the morning were quickly responded to - with clarity and compassion and any appropriate tests to reassure me were arranged. I couldn't be more genuinely grateful and happy I made the decision to be seen by Mr Kasem. “

    Mr Kaseem really makes you feel at ease about the breast augmentation process. Yes he explained side effects and risks but his experience speaks for itself. My results 3 months in are AMAZING! I especially like the fact that he didn't advice any bigger as if I had gone bigger, I would have regretted it. The size is perfect for my height, and figure! This has literally been life changing 😊😊😊

    I had breast uplift surgery with Mr Kasem a week ago, and have just had my check up appointment with him today. Since leaving the hospital, I’ve not needed any pain relief and have been very comfortable. Im so happy with the results. The excess skin I had previous to surgery was very bad, I wasn’t expecting such amazing results so soon after surgery too. The stitching is so neat and tidy too, it’s already healing so well. I can’t recommend Mr Kasem highly enough.

    I had a Breast Augmentation with Dr Kasem on Saturday 10th April. My experience from the consultations, to the surgery day and to the aftercare was second to none and exceeded every single exception I had. Dr. Kasem treated me like I was his only patient, like I was family. I had 2 in-person meetings with him before my surgery and we also discussed my sizing options over the phone on a weekend. Dr Kasem can produce 3D images of how your breast may look after surgery and this was a nice addition to the whole package. I was extremely nervous on the day of surgery, not having anything like this done before but Dr Kasem and his team were very reassuring. I also would like to thank all the staff at The Sloan hospital in Beckenham. I saw Dr Kasem the morning after surgery and on a weekly basis after the surgery for check-up appointments. My recovery was very speedy and I couldn't be happier with my results. If you're thinking about having a Breast Augmentation, I would look no further! I'm so glad I put my trust in Dr Kasem. THANK YOU!
