I was one of Mr Young's patients for just under a year. During a very worrying and distressing time, being under his wing gave me great peace of mind. Mr Young is a very patient and calm man, and his manner and wealth of expertise gave me great peace of mind. His very lovely private secretary is extremely efficient, kind and helpful, and she made my ordeal so much easier for me. Mr Young was always able to accommodate urgent appointments and was very quick to respond to any queries I had in between appointments. I cannot recommend Mr Young enough.

Doctor Young recently helped me excise a mole on my jaw line. Not only he is an excellent surgeon, but he also made me feel comfortable throughout the process. He gave me enough information - yet not overwhelming and overly technical as some doctors sometimes do - and guided me to make the right decision.

I was recommended to Dr Young to perform a procedure involving removal of part of my toenail. My overall experience, from the initial appointment to review my case, the actual procedure, to the post procedure checks were all very positive. Dr Young was extremely patient in explaining the procedure, responding to any questions (I had many), and the actual procedure went very well vs my anxieties and fear. The support personnel and premises were also wecoming and caring

I saw Mr Young for a procedure which my GP had determined as requiring specialist treatment. From my first contact with Mr Young’s PA until the end of my follow up consultation, I experienced a very professional and effeicient servic with a high degree of care and attention at every step of the treatment. I would highly recommend Mr Young and his practice at 152 Harley street.

I have been treated surgically by Mr Richard Young on four occasions in recent years. All arrangements have been made by Sharon Duffin, his charming, and very helpful and efficient private secretary. Mr Young’s management has always been caring and of the highest standard. Being a retired surgeon, I have the greatest admiration for Mr Young’s surgical technique. My daughter, a surgeon, has also been a patient of Mr Young. She was very impressed with both his professional manner, and technical ability. She has complete confidence in him being her surgeon if she were to ever need further treatment. I have no hesitation in saying that patients can be assured that they will be in the best hands for the management of a plastic surgical problem.

I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have been treated by Dr Young, despite the circumstances of the meeting being extremely unfortunate! From the moment I became his patient, Dr Young put me at complete ease. Every step of my treatment, he explained every little detail, every proposed step, every decision made, gave me options and choices and ensured that I was always completely confident and comfortable with the final recommendations -decisions made / next steps. His manner is incredible. Patient and wonderfully empathetic. I felt nothing but absolute safety in his more than capable hands. My treatment during, and aftercare received - were second to none. He made what could have been a life changing and scarring event somehow fade away - certainly physically and with that emotionally. I can not recommend Dr Young more highly. In my eyes, both he and his team are the best you can get. I remain forever grateful.

The treatment of a pleomorphic sarcoma on my forehead by Mr Young was entirely satisfactory. The administration of his practice was unusually efficient and pleasant. The initial consultation with Mr Young was very clear, the procedure itself calm and reassuring, the results of the procedure good and the follow-up care as required. Mr Young has a careful, straightforward and unhurried manner and I found him very likeable to deal with. I would recommend him to others.

My small breasts have always played an important part in my adult life, and at this time in my life I felt I needed to boost my self-esteem. After a referral from my local General Practitioner I had breast augmentation surgery carried out by Mr Young about two months ago. I just wanted to express my appreciation to Mr Young for his excellent work. As my breasts have settled down and my new shape becomes evident, I am so pleased with the results. The whole process was way beyond my comfort zone and something I only dreamed of actually having done. Mr Young spent the first consultation gaining a full understanding of my circumstances, and objectives, and subsequently delivering the solution most appropriate to my needs. This was much simpler and more straightforward than I had imagined, and everything was well explained every step of the way. After two consultations the operation date was set and the pace of the whole operation procedure was well organised. I felt very comfortable seeing Mr Young both before and after the operation. In fact, I was back to work after two weeks and no one could tell. I am just so glad I did it. The recovery was smooth and easy, and I was back to normal exercise after six weeks. The post-operative appointment was also pleasant, comfortable and highly professional. The people who work within the team are wonderful ladies and you cannot ask for more. I loved every visit and it has been a great experience for me. Mr Young is an amazing surgeon who delivered the best result beyond all my expectations. If you are looking for breast augmentation plastic surgery you don’t need to look any further. My experience told me I had the best of the best, and I will highly recommend Mr Young to any friends or someone looking for a world-class breast plastic surgeon. After this successful operation I have a realistic chance of being myself again – confident and happy. I feel I am complete, and the money I spent for this operation was well worth it.

Being the cautious type , I did my preliminary research followed by face to face consultations with three surgeons. Mr Young struck me as the most thorough and I felt most comfortable and safe with him. On the downside, although I wanted to rush ahead with the operation once my mind was made up , Mr Young would not be swayed as all pre op medical reports and tests (over and above that required by others) would need to be fulfilled. I met with Mr Young three times prior to surgery and three times since. The before and aftercare I received was second to none. The outcome of my surgery has far exceeded my expectations and I could not be more delighted. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr Young who went above and beyond to achieve my desired look and succeeded.

I was understandably nervous at the prospect of the procedure. It was something that I had wanted for so long but had not had the courage to pursue. I found the clinic and the experience very welcoming and reassuring from the moment I arrived. You were calm, honest and very professional. It was just what I needed to go through with the procedure. I thought that the way you dealt with me as a patient was extremely supportive, from the initial consultation through to the surgery and follow up appointment. I think it is important to let people know when they have had a positive impact on your life. I am delighted with the results and am now wondering why I didn’t do it much earlier.

I had my breast reduction in March' 14. I initially met Mr Young several months before this. I was able to ask all the questions I wanted and never felt rushed. In every meeting with Mr Young I was made to feel comfortable, relaxed and my requests heard whilst also being given honest & realistic feedback about the procedure. I attended two other consultations with other companies prior to deciding to have my procedure with him. The whole process during the procedure was excellent and if I decided to have any further treatment I would most definitely go back to Mr Young. I had a brilliant service and am so happy with the outcome of the procedure!

Yes I am happy with the results, the experience has been straightforward and I'm glad I chose Richard as I've felt well informed and comfortable every step of the way. This was really important to me. In terms of how they look and feel, they are much softer and have dropped to a more natural state. They feel part of me and not that different to how I looked in very padded bras which I used to wear.

Honestly, I could not express enough how absolutely delighted I am with the results. They look better than I imagined, I haven't lost any sensation and I have so much more movement and less pain than I expected. I can easily lift my arms over my head to put on a t-shirt and from the things I read or heard about other people I thought I would be in button up clothes for a few weeks. There's a bit of an ache when painkillers wear off and a touch tight and itchy which is normal when things heal, but I was anticipating to be in much worse shape post-surgery. MUCH worse.    The incisions are tiny and I had barely any bruising at all. I have absolutely no idea how Mr Young managed to get the implants in. He's a genius! Even after just a week the scar is only a bit pink, totally straight and neat and I imagine it will disappear in no time.   I am beyond thrilled, truly, I could not be happier!   Now I just can't wait for the six weeks to pass so I can go lingerie shopping!!!

After many years of promising myself a boob job, I finally plucked up the courage to go ahead.  And actually it wasn't anywhere near as scary as I thought it would be.  This is down to the gentle, calm, professional and empathetic treatment I received from Richard Young and his team.  Everyone was so caring - Sharon and Nurse Hoppy helped me through the pre and post consultations and were always there to answer any questions.  Mr Young is a terrific surgeon, asked all the right questions and took lots of time, so that he really understood what I was looking for - a natural enhancement that people wouldn't necessarily notice.  And that's exactly what I've got. It’s now 5 months since the operation and and I love my new boobs! Everything was explained very carefully beforehand so that there were no surprises - they warned me the first few days would be tough, and I have to say, it does feel like you've been kicked in the chest by a donkey, but only for a short while!  The level of care throughout was fantastic and I would have no hesitation recommending Mr Young to anyone considering this kind of surgery.

I visited Mr Richard Young with a view to having my 12 year old implants replaced, and it was the best decision I could have made.  I knew from our first meeting that I was in safe hands, and was grateful for a cancellation space that came available, giving me only a six week wait before my op.  From consult, to operation, to post op I was dealt with in an excellent manner by ALL the staff and felt looked after from start to finish. The results are more than I hoped for, and I'm delighted with my new breasts. I would thoroughly recommend Mr Young.

BY A VERIFIED PATIENT

I had a BA with Mr Young on the 10th of Jan and I can't be more pleased with the result and that I chose him as my surgeon. Although I found Mr Young independently, a close doctor friend of mine, who had previously worked with him, told me he's the man to see and couldn't speak more highly of his work, which I found this enormously reassuring coming from someone in the profession. I can't praise Mr Young enough as I was very cautious about surgery and choosing the right surgeon. His top rate qualifications and experience speak from themselves and I found him incredibly patient in answering all my questions, even taking time to speak with me, when he was on leave, prior to my surgery as he wanted to insure that I was completely happy and reassured. I did have a consultation else where which was the complete opposite to what I experienced with Mr Young and needless to say I did not return. I have seen Mr Young 3 times since my surgery date to check things are okay and I am due back in another 2-3 months, so I feel very well looked after. I now have very natural, pretty looking breasts and can't be happier.
