Mr Bast has given me the ability to breathe properly and on top of giving me a functional nose he’s also made it look absolute incredible, I can’t thank him enough. From our first meeting I knew I was in good hands, through out he was able to explain exactly what was going to happen (without over complicating it) and perfectly describe the outcome (it almost sounded too good to be true) but what he promised is what I received. I never once felt nervous about trusting him with such a central feature to my appearance and he has always made me feel welcome seeing him in appointments and welcome to come back at any time should I have any further questions. I would recommend Mr Bast in a heartbeat

I injured my nose when I was a child and struggled to breathe through it for over 10 years which effected my daily life, sleep and exercise. I also had trouble with equalising pressure. I had two surgeries over the years to fix it and both didn’t work. I came to Mr Florian Bast in desperation to fix my nose and I honestly can’t thank him enough. Mr Bast as a person is very easy-going and likeable and an incredibly highly skilled surgeon. You can tell he is passionate about his work and makes sure to give you the time and care you need. Each consultation was informative and genuinely a pleasure to be at. Within two consultations and a CT scan he had confirmed that I had a deviated septum with deformity to the right side, inflamed turbinates and lots of scar tissue. I also had a sinus issue especially to the right side and skin that was breaking down on the front of my nose due to a protruding bone in the that was made worse from a past surgery. Mr Bast listened to my priorities, made sure I was realistic in what I could expect and helped to guide me with decisions. Mr Bast performed an endoscopic sinus surgery using the balloon technique and a second revision septorhinoplasty. This was to sort out the sinus issue, straighten my septum, clear the nostrils and straighten the nose bone which involved transferring cartilage. I was under a tight time pressure from my insurance and so I had to have the surgery as soon as possible to be covered by it. Both Mr Bast and his secretary Julia were great at making this achievable, with consultations, scans and the surgery itself booked in no time at all. I was never made to feel like I was inconveniencing them and they both replied to emails and questions straight away. The surgery itself lasted 3 hours and I was treated really well by the hospital nurses and staff. Mr Bast came to visit before the surgery to make sure I knew what was going to happen and if everything was okay. The aftercare was amazing as Mr Bast didn’t just do the surgery and leave me to it, he genuinely cared about my wellbeing and the outcome of the surgery. I was given all the post-op medication that I needed with clear instructions. Emails with questions that I had over the next couple of days re bleeding were quickly replied to and advice given. I also want to point out that, despite this surgery being the most intrusive and complex of all the surgeries I had the in past, there was very limited bruising compared to the two black eyes I had for weeks after the first two surgeries. This was all down to the technical skill and patience that he used when operating on my nose and using the most recent, advanced techniques. Although my nose is still swollen and I will not feel/ see the end result for a couple of months, everything is already so much better. After 10+ years of sounding like Darth Vadar for the 10 seconds I could actually breathe through my nose, I can now finally take a deep breath through it. Sleeping, flying and every day life is so much better already. It also looks great as I no longer have an obviously broken nose with a funky discoloured patch. Honestly, this surgery has been life changing. I was fed up of the ongoing nose problems and surgery failures and knew that I needed to find a top surgeon to fix it once and for all. I can’t thank Mr Bast enough for being that surgeon. I’d recommend Mr Bast to literally everybody I know.

From the first meeting it was made clear to me what my condition was and how the procedure will benefit me. During the process, during and after the procedure, I was able to communicate with Florian in what can only be described as a clear and straightforward manner; Florian would give me detailed information about what would be done and how it will affect me, including information about the recovery process and what could go wrong. Following the procedure Florian was again very descriptive in what went on whilst I was on the operating table. I got a feeling the Florian was very meticulous with his work and was very happy with it. I can say that I am really happy with the results.
