Rhinoplasty – Faultless

I had rhinoplasty performed by Mr Awf Quaba and the whole process was faultless. He was a lovely man, obviously extremely knowledgeable and experienced, who really listened and made sensible suggestions of what he could achieve. On the day, everything went quickly and smoothly and was home by the evening of surgery. Overall the procedure was painless – I cannot recall feeling any discomfort at all the during recovery period. Nose was blocked and couldn’t taste anything for 3 days but, other than that, no drawbacks at all. Would recommend the procedure with no reservations at all.

Facelift surgery – I found a great surgeon!

Having never forayed into the world of cosmetic surgery, I feel I was very fortunate to find Mr Quaba.
Murrayfield Hospital supplied me with a list of surgeons upon my initial query regarding a neck/lower facelift and I looked through each of their profiles and kept coming back to the Quaba practice.
From my first consultation, Mr Quaba put me at ease and gave me very realistic expectations of the outcome if I chose to go for surgery. He explained all the risks involved and confirmed everything we discussed in writing, which gave me the time and the opportunity to fully consider if this was the right choice for me.
I went ahead with the neck and lower facelift a few months later and felt completely safe in Mr Quaba’s hands. He has an excellent gentle manner. I also love the fact that he and his father work together. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.
I am so glad I opted for my surgery and am very happy with the results.

Chin fillers – Brilliant experience

Always friendly, informative and helpful. Made you feel comfortable and always provided an honest opinion about what would be the best course of action. Did a wonderful job, very pleased with the results. Would definitely recommend as the results have had a positive effect on my self-confidence levels and the healing time was both fast and pain-free.

Rhinoplasty – 5 star

My only regret is not having the procedure years ago. After paying for a few consultations in other clinics I felt Mr Quaba made me feel most at ease about my Rhinoplasty and explained everything to me. From start to finish all the staff who cared for me were amazing. I felt no pain afterwards and although I had a lot of bruising and swelling this was nearly all gone within 2 weeks. Could not recommend Dr Quaba enough if you are thinking of having a rhinoplasty.

Facelift surgery -I felt safe and sound throughout

As an older lady, I was given a realistic expectation of the end result. While in hospital I was well looked after and when we had an unexpected hiccup due to me having been on blood thinners I was readmitted with Mr Quaba Senior on hand at 2.00am to provide care and reassurance. Both Mr Quabas have excellent bedside manners and have the ability to make you feel safe an secure. Unbelievably, I experienced little or no pain (but did look a bit like a Russian astronaut with the bandages round my head). Obviously, there were stitches in front and behind my ear and into my hairline. However, my skin has healed exceptionally well and there is absolutely no sign that work has been done apart from my lovely smooth neck and lack of jowls (which were not attractive).
I was treated with respect and care throughout the process.

Thank you so much Mr Quaba

Upper eyelid surgery – 5 star

At the initial consultation, everything was explained in detail to me so i could make an informed decision if i wanted to go ahead with my eyelid lift or not.
I decided to go ahead with the procedure and the care i recieved excellent. i went in as a day patient and the procedure was carried out under local anaesthetic. Mr Quaba explained each step as he did the operation. i was in at out of the theatre after 45 mins. I was treated with respect at all times. One week later stitches were removed there was no pain at all and on my experience, i would highly recommend Mr Omar Quaba.

Rhinoplasty – I had a great experience

I had a great experience with this surgeon. I had my rhinoplasty surgery in August 2018. After a long time thinking about having the surgery, I decided to book. I had read a lot of reviews on different surgeons before I decided on Quaba.
I am delighted with the result. Wish I had done it sooner.

Eyelid surgery – Very professional

My upper blepharoplasty was a very professional and good experience with Mr Quaba and his team. I felt very taken care of and looked after at all times. I am also extremely pleased with the results although my facial bruising took a few months to disappear. I would not hesitate to recommend this surgeon and his team.

Rhinoplasty – Care was exceptional

My only regret is not having the procedure years ago.

Could not recommend Dr Quaba enough if you are thinking of having a rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty – Best money I’ve ever spent!

I had septorhinoplasty in Sep 2018 because my nose was awful – squint, bulbous AND projecting. I would never let anyone take my photo and was extremely paranoid and unhappy with it. I’m now 5 months post surgery and I’m SO glad I did it. It was worth every penny. I am so much more confident in my appearance. I don’t run away from cameras anymore and my overall confidence is so much higher! There’s still quite a bit of swelling there but it already looks so much better, so I’m excited to see how it looks in another 6 months or so.

At my first consultation, Mr Quaba was great, I felt like he took my concerns seriously and he took the time to explain what could be done to improve the appearance of my nose.

I think one thing to bear in mind with rhinoplasty is that you see the final results a LONG time after the actual operation. The swelling isn’t obvious after a couple of weeks and most people won’t think you look strange, but it’s definitely there. My nose was enormous for a few days after the cast came off so I would definitely recommend taking 2 weeks off work if you can… unless you don’t mind walking around with a cast on and a massive nose, but I did!

Overall, great results and really pleasant experience with Mr Quaba and all of the staff at Spire hospital. No complaints whatsoever and I’m very happy with my surgery. Very highly recommended if you’re considering rhinoplasty :)
