“From my very first consultation regarding blepharoplasty with Mr D'souza through to the final follow-up appointment, I could not recommend him highly enough. His persona made me feel comfortable at the outset and I never felt any pressure to proceed with surgery. He was very reassuring and this was particularly welcome during the procedure itself. I am so pleased with the results of my eye lift, more so than I could ever have imagined. Thank you!“
