“Mr Joshi was extremely professional, very kind and friendly. Whilst I am sure my procedure was minor, I was very anxious about it and he really made me feel at ease before and kept talking to me during to keep me calm. The procedure was on my face and he has taken so much care that even after just a few weeks it is healing so nicely and I believe there will be minimal scarring.“

    I was extremely happy that Dr Joshi took his time to explained my long list of questions and was able to answered them all which put me at ease before my surgery. All throughout my procedure from the start to finish, he was very professional and I was well informed about what was going to happen / my recovery etc. I am very grateful and thankful to how he made me feel from the moment I had my consultation to my follow up appointment after the surgery. Based on the experience I had, I will highly recommend Dr Joshi.

    Septoplasty Adult Ear, Nose & Throat Surgery Revision Surgery
    I underwent a revision septorhinoplasty proceedure under the care of Mr Joshi just over a week ago. 11 years ago I had an initial septorhinoplasty with a Harley Street based cosmetic surgery company. Immediately it was noticeably unsuccessful to me however the surgeon nor the other staff would agree that there was anything wrong with it & would not agree to a revision after healing was complete. It was distressing as I felt crazy for seeing something so obviously not ok, but being told it was fine. I was recommended Mr Joshi by my dermatologist (Dr Zainab Laftah) when I asked if she know of any surgeons who might be able to help me (as 11 years had felt so long to live with the crooked nose I was left with.) I booked a consultation with him and from the off I knew he was the right person for the job. He identified exactly the points I was unhappy with and gave me a thorough description as to how he would approach the surgery. Making sure to advise me to keep my expectations realistic considering this would be a revision surgery and there would no way to tell what the surgeon would be faced with when it came to operating, but at the same time assured me that, at very least, improvements were possible to be made. He made a point of meeting me prior to the operation to discuss the surgery again in the days before the surgery date, which was extra reassuring and met with me again on the morning of the surgery. He made me feel at ease every time. I could not have asked for more from the result of my revision surgery. Mr Joshi has managed to attain a level of symmetry I never thought was possible after how bad my nose was after my initial operation 11 years ago. I had felt so self conscious from a young age & the fact my first surgery didn’t go right was devastating to me, as I had already spent most of my life prior to then, avoiding photos & little did I know I would be spending another 11 hating my nose just as much for other reasons. I now have a nose I can live with finally and I am so delighted and so extremely grateful to Mr Joshi & his team. He surpassed all expectations. It was a difficult surgery with the need to Mr Joshi to completely reconstruct parts of the nose tip to get this result. I would absolutely recommend Mr Joshi to anyone and everyone requiring this surgery. His attention to detail is second to none and it is so clear he loves his job. Thank You from the bottom of my heart.
