“Mister Desai is an extremely professional and talented doctor. He explained the advantages and disadvantages of a breast augmentation in detail. I felt reassured and comforted at all times. Mister Desai answered all questions I had starting from the make of the implants over the shape of the implants to the weight. He informed me about the healing process in general and what to do to speed it up. When I was anxious a couple of days before the operation, he allowed me to speak to him on the phone outside the clinic hours. He took a lot of time to make me feel comfortable. I have never come across a more dedicated, professional, caring and kind doctor than Mr. Desai. I have already recommended him to my girlfriends. Furthermore, my new breasts look fabulous! They are just the right size and they look really natural. I am happy for any of Mr. Desai's patients to talk to me about their up and coming operations under this amazing doctor. Thank you Mister Desai for looking after me so well. Best“
