Dr Faisal Ali
26th May 2021
Just over a year ago, (sorry for delay) Dr Ali performed surgery on several BCCs on my nose. I had 4 operations in the day extracting more cancer cells and Dr Ali was patient, caring and explained each step, he could see how worried I was each time and put me at ease. When it came to the reconstructive surgery, Dr Ali listened to my concerns over the scaring and he spent time considering options and discussing these with me, and before starting discussed this with a colleague as well. Dr Ali tried removing skin from a non-normal position in order to leave me with minimal scaring. The end result was wonderful, and although I have a slight swell on one side of my nose, most people cannot see a scar or know that I have had an operation. Dr Ali ensured that the scar followed the line of my nose and fold in the join to the face.
I found Dr Ali to be a wonderful surgeon who listened to patient concerns and worries and considered how to ensure the patent was happy. The procedure took longer by by removing skin from my nose bridge rather than my cheek, and it meant his work finished later, but I felt Dr Ali was more concerned over how I felt and that he could provide me the least scaring possible, that he really didn't mind working late to ensure that.
I hope that if I am unlucky enough to need further BCCs removed that I am lucky enough to have Dr Ali as my surgeon. Dr Ali - many many thanks from a very happy patient. Sue
