Treatment: Tummy tuck with liposuction

Surgeon: Vik Vijh

After a lifetime of obesity, due to a combination of underactive thyroid, a demanding job, stress and resistance to exercise, I finally retired and lost 5 stones. I then embarked on getting fit and have been weight training for almost two years. Thus, at the age of 63, I was slimmer and healthier than at any stage in my adult life - but, unfortunately, my body was carrying saggy pouches where my spares tyres used to be and nothing I could do would shift them. Having investigated other surgeons and missed the boat with one (he retired before I got thin) and being totally underwhelmed with another, I found myself watching TV to see Mr Vijh repairing poor surgery done by others. Research confirmed my feeling that this was the man for me and I made an appointment to have a consultation. My immediate impression was that this was an honest, realistic surgeon at the top of his game. He told me what I could reasonably expect and what would be involved. I signed up on the spot and am now 10 days post full tummy tuck with lipo. I can honestly say that this has exceeded my wildest expectations! The whole hospital experience was reassuring and professional - I felt that I was in safe hands from the start. Returning home, I was fortunate not to need the full dose of pain meds prescribed because it really was far, far less painful than I had anticipated. I was standing straight within the first week and moving much more easily after 5 days. Although I still have swelling, I can see that the result is far better than I was before - even if it never got better than this, I would be delighted! I cannot recommend Mr Vijh enough. The man is quite simply a genius. He does not raise false expectations nor promise unrealistic results, just tells you straight what is possible - which is exactly what I wanted. In fact, I’d say he underplays the end result! His anaesthetist Harjot was the most reassuring presence imaginable and the office staff have answered my many queries promptly and helpfully. I know that every patient’s experience is unique but, for me, this has been the most wonderful thing ever and I am happier than I ever thought possible.

Treatment: Gynaecomastia

Surgeon: Mr Vijh

Having Gynaecomastia surgery with Dr Vijh has changed my life, it has given me so much more confidence. He is a very skillful surgeon and one of the very few that can do the whole operation (gland removal too) all through small incisions in the arm pit. I don’t understand why guys still go to other surgeons having their nipples cut open. I would recommend Dr Vijh to anyone considering Gynaecomastia surgery.

Treatment: Abdominoplasty

Surgeon: Mr Vijh

Mr Vijh was the second Harley St surgeon I saw having become aware of him from TV. My initial impression of Mr Vijh at consultation was his affable nature. I also found him considered in his opinions, evidently based on his experience but at the same time I felt fully able to make my own decisions throughout the process. The consultation was unhurried and informative, him showing me a gallery of photos of relevant procedures he had conducted. After the consultation I felt confident in having him as my surgeon. All my surgery is now complete and I feel a different person, much happier with the way I look, having experienced significant weight loss and consequential redundant skin. Most notably, I now have a perfectly flat tummy and neat scar rather than a overhang which I absolutely detested. I found Mr Vijh to be a surgeon who invested much in the aesthetic outcome with no bar on surgery time to achieve a particular result - ‘it takes as long as it takes’ could be his motto. It appeared to me that he was able to use his skill and experience with an innate ability to produce a desired result, even in uncharted territory. I liken this to an accomplished chef who instinctively knows how much of what ingredient works to produce a Michelin starred dish; (not underestimating the intellectual rigour involved in surgery). It has also has to be said that the post-operative care has been excellent. Warmest wishes to Mr Vijh and his team.

Treatment: Revision rhinoplasty

Surgeon: Mr Vijh

“Mr Vijh is simply amazing. I can’t tell you how happy he has made me since correcting all the bad rhinoplasty procedures I’d had done previously. He is a very very talented and clever man who has incredible knowledge. He listened carefully to what I’d asked him to do and was very honest with his answers and he made the whole process a breeze. I only wish I had known about Mr Vijh a few years ago as I would definitely have chosen him over my previous surgeon who had not listened to what I’d asked for. I love Mr Vijh for what he has done and feel more confident now and I would 100% recommend him to anyone wishing to have cosmetic surgery. I was, and any future patients will be, in the safest of hands. Mr Vijh is simply the nicest man I’ve ever met.”

Treatment: Face and neck lift with fat transfer

Surgeon: Vik Vijh

“The biggest impact has been psychological. I used to feel ashamed when I met people that I hadn’t seen for some time because of my aged face. Now I feel full of self-confidence and much more cheerful”.

Treatment: Abdominoplasty with liposuction

Surgeon: Vik Vijh

The tummy tuck procedure I had done in August has completely changed my life. After living in control wear every single day including the summer months for about 6-7 years, I now have the confidence to wear clothes I used to dream about. My tummy tuck and lipo has changed the shape of my body and changed the way I feel inside. Mr Vijh is an amazing surgeon. I felt comfortable and at ease with him from the word go and knew I was in safe hands. The results from the incision are extremely impressive – I know the scars will eventually fade to nothing – they are very smooth and just blend in. Everything ran really smoothly. I would definitely use Mr Vijh again for further procedures.

Treatment: Rhinophyma surgery

Surgeon: Vik Vijh

For many years I have lived with a nose that made me feel so self-conscious, and the topic of conversation would always be about the size of my nose, but now it is amazing to be free of that worry. I was at the Hereford Hospital seeing a consultant about some skin cancer when I happened to mention was there anything I could have done about the Rosacea, which was altering the size of my nose, and not for the better. Mr Vijh came into the conversation and was highly recommended, so I got in contact for an appointment. Not knowing what to expect on our meeting, but was pleasantly surprised that he conducted the meeting with such ease and comfort and communicated on the same lines that was understanding to me. A date was fixed for the operation. On my arrival date for the operation the professionalism shown by the staff of the Nuffield, nurses and theatre staff was outstanding. The professionalism of Mr Vijh cannot be explained in words, I felt absolutely safe in his hands. He talked me through the operation prior and he also visited me after the procedure to confirm all went very well. I must also say that the aftercare was phenomenal. The result is subtle and my nose now fits my face perfectly. I am absolutely over the moon with the results.” Kind regards to you Mr Vijh.
