Had septorhinoplasty procedure with Dr. Bast - now almost 1 month post-op, I am extremely happy with the results! The entire process from consultations to the surgery to follow up, Dr Bast delivered 10/10 medical service and professionalism. He demonstrated his top of class ENT expertise extremely well and made me feel fully confident entrusting him with the procedure.

Dr Bast listens, which I think is the most important factor in a Dr, his advice was sound, and I felt reassured by his medical assessment.

From the first meeting with Mr Bast, I was treated with the utmost respect, care and attention. My first consultation was a relaxed, open discussion about what my aims were for the treatment of my nose. I could not breathe through one nostril and I had always struggled with my confidence as I also had a dorsal hump. Florian ensured me that for any surgery to be successful, patient and surgeon must be on the same page throughout the process of consultations, to surgery, to post-op. Therefore, Florian explained clearly what he could do for me and encouraged me to ask as many questions as possible. During all consultations I felt valued, welcome, relaxed and most importantly comfortable to discuss the realistic outcomes for both the function and aesthetic of my nose. I mentioned to Florian how nervous I was about the anaesthetic on the day, therefore he ensured me that I could organise a consultation with the him and the anaesthetist he would use for my surgery in the lead up. I was able to meet the anesthetist and ask lots of questions which put me completely at ease. This is just one example of the excellent care I received with Florian as my consultant. The surgery day came around quickly and Florian was there beforehand to discuss the procedure with myself and my parents at the hospital. He made me feel at ease on the surgery day and had made everything so clearly in the lead up, I felt completely safe and looked after at all times. Once I had woken up from surgery in the recovery room, Florian was there straight away to check I was okay, explained he was pleased with the initial outcome and that confirmed everything went smoothly. At my 'cast-off' consultation, Mr Bast explained what I should expect to happen over the coming weeks. I was so overwhelmed and pleased, and still am. The aftercare was brilliant. Mr Bast prescribed me with sprays/antibiotics etc for the coming weeks/months and I have been using these daily as directed. Genuinely, choosing Mr Bast as my consultant was the best decision I could have made. He was able to give me the nose I could only dream of and I feel more myself than ever, so thank you Mr Bast. This has honestly changed my life for the better and I am looking forward to my next consultation.

Dear Dr. Bast, just wanted to thank you for the surgery. It has absolutely changed my life in so many ways. I can breath again, I can taste and smell food again. I have more energy when I run and I am not constantly stuffy with a pack of tissues in my pocket. Thank you for changing my life, I really appreciate it.

Dr Florian Bast was recommended to me by various ENT specialists. I required specialist treatment for my condition and also wanted a cosmetic improvement on my nose which i felt was heavily twisted and was at times affecting my breathing. So i decided to go ahead with Functional septoplasty, Eustachian tuboplasty and Cosmetic Rhinoplasty with Florian Bast. At first, i was unsure if to get the surgery but Florian was very confident and very reassuring, we had a couple meetings before surgery where he provided face morphed images of what my nose will look like post surgery and having had the surgery i can say i am 100% happy and satisfied with the outcome. Post surgery, i had a few questions regarding the aftercare and even when Florian was away on holiday, he called me and provided me the information i needed. It has been 1 month since my surgery and i am extremely happy with the professional service and care Florian has taken with my case from the start to finish. I highly recommend Florian Bast to anybody considering the treatments noted above.

A recommendation from a friend led me to seek a consultation with Florian Bast. A previous failed operation for facial damage by another surgeon following an accident had left me with a blockage in each nasal cavity and a saddle nose deformity. At our first meeting in Harley Street, Florian defined a plan of action to restore form and function to my nose. He took photographs and morphed the outcome he intended. The complex reconstructive septorhinoplasty that followed on our agreed date, involved a three hour operation carried out by Florian at the excellent Weymouth Street Hospital. The outcome is first class. I can breathe properly again and the nose has a natural non-operated appearance . All objectives achieved! Florian Bast is an excellent surgeon and communicator efficient and is personally accessible to his patients. He inspires confidence and has a sensitive understanding of potential patient concerns. Julia, his PA, offers excellent support, is very knowledgable and makes sure everything goes without hitch. I recommend him without reservation.

I visited Florian for cosmetic injections in my forehead and​ filler in my lips. He used a 5 point technique rather than the traditional ‘2 areas’ technique and my forehead has never looked so good - issues around my slightly droopy eyelids have also been corrected as a result. My lips look naturally plump and are completely smooth. Florian took the utmost care with my face, is extremely precise in his work and has a pleasant and calming demeanor. I’m definitely going to be coming back for my next treatments in 6 months time.

Seeing Mr. Bast was a great choice. I gotta say I was very pleased with him at the result is great. At first when I came for the consultation I was a bit nervous and intimidated, cause I didn`t know what to expect, and just for the fact that I was going in there to talk about something that I try to hide it was out of my comfort zone, I was feeling a bit exposed. Mr Bast was charming and warm which made me feel comfortable, and I felt like he knew what he was talking about. Also he was well presented and very professional without being patronizing and I had that feeling of trust staight away. Many thanks!

saw Dr Bast to get a second opinion for a Nasal Septal Perforation Repair and I’m so glad I did. He put my mind at ease straight away and took the time to explain everything in detail. I was so nervous about the operation as it’s a complex one, but I couldn’t be happier with the result and most of my symptoms (nosebleeds, crusting, whistling) have disappeared. Amazing! Dr Bast is a wonderful, professional, charming, engaging surgeon who I would thoroughly recommend! Thank you for making me happy again!

I had two scares from rhinoplasty and I had number of consultations with different doctors but I never felt comfortable with any of their suggestions. I met Dr Bast through Weymouth Hospital. I deiced to do a rhinoplasty revision with him. The result was even better than what I expected. The after care was excellent and he explained everything pre and post surgery in details.

For 20 years I’ve been unable to breathe through the right side of my nose and have always been insecure about the appearance of my broken nose. I was worried about having an operation as I didn’t want to look like the guy who’d had a nose job and lose my nose’s masculine appearance. I’d never been happy with the shape of my nose but on the other hand I did like its unique character. But I definitely wanted to fix my breathing problem. BasicalIy, I wanted to do something but I was confused. Mr Bast understood my situation completely, even better than I did. The first thing he did was advise me to take more time to consider what I wanted to achieve. Having taken some time to do so, when I saw him again he was able to suggest adjustments in line with my thinking. He would fix my breathing and subtly improve the shape, whilst still keeping the character and masculinity of my face. Obviously there are emotions involved in making a decision like this and Florian was very intuitive to sense that I needed more time. His understanding and guidance meant that I was in a solid mental place to have surgery. Furthermore, I was confident that with such an assured, thoughtful surgeon I couldn’t have been in better hands and that he would deliver the results we wanted. I had my cast off yesterday and I am delighted with the results so far. There’s still a lot of swelling but even at this stage I can see what an fine job he has done. Couldn’t recommend anyone more.

Dear Dr. Bast, I came in for a bilateral tonsillectomy on the 17th July and really wanted to thank you for your care. My recovery has gone really well as a direct result of the skill of you and your colleagues. I was told you were an excellent surgeon. They forgot to mention you’re also a lovely human. I really appreciated you taking time to reassure me before the procedure when I was irrationally terrified. With the upmost gratitude & respect, M.I.
