Mr Ridha was very professional and comfting on my visit. Once given a clear explanation of what I wanted he was very clear and informative of his procedures and provide me with options along with all the pros and cons of the operation needed.


I met with Mr. Ridha for a Rhinoplasty consultation in December 2018 and found him to be professional, warm and friendly. He understood my requirements and was very realistic in what he thought could be achieved. He was very thorough and encouraged me to take time to consider my final decision before booking the surgery. It is clear that he has very exacting standards and strives for perfection. I had complete trust that he would provide a natural result. He did a fantastic job in managing my expectations, yet I feel that he has exceeded them in respect of the results. The recovery process was not painful and was much quicker and easier than I had anticipated. Mr. Ridha’s PA Teresa, who is also a surgical nurse, contacted me throughout the process and was always on hand to answer any questions whilst providing reassurance and support. In summary, I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Ridha to any prospective patient considering cosmetic surgery.


Mr. Ridha was recommended to me by a friend (who is a plastic surgeon herself) when I mentioned to her that I was considering rhinoplasty because I was unhappy with the shape of my nose. In an initial consultation I described what I wanted to change and he explained what could and could not be done in my case. He also explained what the risks were and what I should expect from the process, answering all my questions and making sure I understood all the details. I was later sent morphed images that showed what my new nose might look like if I went ahead with the surgery. Surgery and subsequent recovery were painless and straightforward and I was back to an almost normal life within a week. The results are better than I had hoped and exactly as Mr. Ridha described.


I had revised facelift in May 2017 with Mr Rhida. Results are excellent giving a natural youthful appearance . As it was a revised facelift was not straight forward due to scar tissue however due to Mr Rhida's expertise and patience desired results were achieved. If i choose any future surgery will be happy for Mr Rhida to carry out procedure.


Very pleased with the way my meeting went with Mr Ridha. Professional, easy to talk with, factual and empathetic. Answered all questions and explained procedure in detail with information and diagrams to make sure I understood each step. Nothing was rushed and he listened to exactly what I wanted to achieve. This was then followed up with a confirmation letter and all the relevant information leaflets. I booked my surgery the very next day. Very excited. Came out of the consulting room with every confidence To go ahead and book surgery.


I went to see Mr Ridha for a free first consultation for my Breast Augmentation. We talked through my options and he was very informative and approachable. He was never pushy and even advised me on the best time frame to fit around my family. He was friendly and very honest about my situation. After my next paid consultation we discussed things in more detail. He was incredibly patient and understanding of what I wanted but also with his knowledge and expertise he knew what was the best size for my breast augmentation to look natural. I had another consultation before my operation and we talked through the procedures he put me at ease. On the big day he was very reassuring. Even after the operation he was there to see me and was very considerate. I’m am so pleased with the end result and incredibly glad I I let him decided on the day which was best size for my body. I would highly recommend Mr Ridha to any of my friends and family, Not just because of his excellent results but because he is fun, understanding but still very professional. It has made my experience such a positive one. Thank you so much. happy with my new breasts.


Mr Ridha was first recommended to me by a friend, we were out to dinner and I could not believe the difference in her eyes I asked what she had done as the change was subtle and impactful at the same time, she told me about Mr Ridha so I made an appointment and had the same procedure done, the results were amazing, I was so pleased with the result. Since that time I have been to Mr Ridha for liposuction on my abdomen and sides, again the results are fantastic, I dropped a dress size and started wearing clothes I have never been able to wear before, bikinis also look great, as there is no scarring, I would highly recommend Mr Ridha, for all types of surgery, he is trustworthy, professional and kind and considerate. A fantastic Surgeon who seeks perfection for his patients. I will be returning to Mr Ridha early next year for breast augmentation following breast cancer, as I would not trust anyone else.


I underwent breast reduction surgery under Mr Ridha in July 2017 and I genuinely cannot recommend him enough if you are considering surgery. Having had large breasts since early teens, I have thought about a reduction for many years now. It is something which has not only caused physical issues for me, but also mental ones. I wasn’t keen on going through the NHS for the procedure, not least as I wanted to have the say over my surgeon. So I began researching my options and Mr Ridha came recommended from a friend. I honestly thought I might end up going for 2 or 3 consultations with different surgeons before I decided on whether or not to go ahead. Within minutes of meeting Mr Ridha at my first consultation I knew I was going ahead with the procedure and that I had found the right surgeon for me. I was instantly put at ease and given all the information I required but there was absolutely no hard sell or pressure to go ahead with anything… In fact I felt it was more like me pressuring Mr Ridha into giving me a date! Mr Ridha is a genius in my eyes, I can’t even think of another word to describe him. I’m sure I should have felt anxious going into theatre (I lost count of the number of people asking me if I was nervous), but I genuinely didn’t have a single worry – this is testament the faith I had in him and his team. I gave Mr Ridha a guideline of the size I wanted my breasts to be, but felt more than confident leaving the final look/size up to him – I was definitely right to this, as he made a great decision and I think they are perfect From the second I woke up from my operation, I knew I’d made the right decision and I have not looked back. The majority of operations are not going to be pain-free, but with the advice given by Mr Ridha and his team, and pain relief provided, it really wasn’t anywhere near as sore as I expected (in fact it hardly hurt at all). Over 18 months on and I am still as happy now as I was when I woke up. I would not be able to recommend him highly enough to anyone for this procedure. I was originally told by Mr Ridha he would ideally like me lower my BMI to go ahead with the procedure which I worked hard on and managed to achieve by the day of my operation. I have since gone on to lose even more weight and drop 3 dress sizes in total. The operation gave me the confidence I needed to make the lifestyle changes. I am a changed person, for the better and my friends and family genuinely cannot believe the change in me physically and mentally. I can honestly say it was the best decision of my life and I cannot thank Mr Ridha enough for helping me with this journey.


I had a breast augmentation with Mr Rihda, I always felt so insecure about my chest size and wanted to make a change for myself. I booked a consultation with Mr Ridha and straight away I knew I wanted him to be my surgeon as he made me feel very comfortable and he understood how I wanted my breasts to look so well, he was very professional. The care before and after the surgery was amazing, Mr Ridha's secretary Teressa was very approachable and has been extremely helpful from before surgery to weeks after. I'm so happy with the outcome of the surgery, they're exactly how I wanted them to be! The care and support after surgery has been amazing too. I couldn't recommend Mr Hyder Ridha enough!


My feedback is based on a consultation followed by treatment in two areas of my body. Mr Ridha Is a genuine and personable surgeon who inspired me with trust and reassurance. Although he strives for perfection, he manages well expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend him or to consult him again in the future.


I was recommended to Hyder Ridha by two separate oncologists. He performed corrective breast reconstruction for me and I am absolutely delighted with the results. I just wish I had found him sooner. He very confidently identified the problem and knew straight away what he could do to correct it. He addressed all my concerns pre surgery, and gave me information in a very clear and understandable manner. His PA, Teresa - who is also a nurse, kept in touch throughout my recovery, providing reassurance and advice. I felt extremely well looked after and would very happily recommend Mr Ridha and his team at Spire Harpenden to anyone.


Following my recent initial consultation with Mr Ridha I found him very approachable, he listen to everything I had to say and took time to understand what I wanted from my surgery. He explained what options were available to me and would I could realistically expect. This was followed up with a very detailed letter once again explaining everything to me in full. My whole experience so far has been great.


I had an initial consult with Mr Hyder Ridha and I was most pleased. He patiently listened to my concerns, advised on the best way forward and wrote a detailed clinical letter confirming all we had discussed. He made me feel at ease and confident to return to him. I highly recommend.
