Prior to deciding to go with David Cheung, I had consultations with 2 other plastic surgeons - I decided to go with Mr Cheung because of his extensive experience and excellent reputation in eye surgery. The consultation was fantastic - he was thorough with his explanations and very patient with my many questions and reassured me. He kept in regular communication prior to the surgery, answering my last minute questions and putting my mind at rest. On the day of the surgery, I was clearly nervous but he gave me confidence that the procedure would go to plan and that I was not to worry. Although it wasn't the most enjoyable experience, I felt safe at all times and trusted that I was in the best hands. The atmosphere throughout the surgery was calm, friendly and chatty, with music playing in the background and the time passed quickly. Immediately after the surgery, I was given recovery time during which a nurse stayed with me to check me over to ensure I was ok to go home fully informed about the aftercare. After the operation I was able to contact Mr Cheung, who was very quick in responding and supporting me with my concerns and questions about my recovery. I felt that I could get in touch with him at any time and he always helped to reassure me. Overall, I am extremely happy with all aspects of my experience and the outcome of my surgery; it has knocked 10 years off me and is better than I could have hoped for. I no longer suffer with dry eyes or sore eyelids due to the hooding and the ptosis has gone in my left eye. I would recommend Mr David Cheung 100% to anyone considering eye surgery.
I have always worn eyeshadow but my eyelids had become so overhanging that I was starting to feel that there was no point applying it as you couldn't see it. As I am a hairdresser I was surrounded by young girls who were able to apply stunning eye makeup. After discussing this with a colleague she recommended that I should go and see Dr Cheung as her mother had had surgery and was so pleased with her results. So I took the plunge and went to see Dr Cheung. Dr Cheung was great and recommended Blepharoplasty, explained the procedure and showed me lots of before and after pictures. I left feeling excited at the results I could achieve. Several weeks later I began to feel very anxious and started to feel that I wasn't brave enough to go through with it. I contacted Dr Cheung by text as he had given me his mobile number and explained how nervous I was, he said a few simple things in his text back to me that instantly made me feel more relaxed about it. For instance he said I could have slight sedation but that he really didn't feel that I needed it and that a few of his patients had said it was a real anti climax. I went to visit one of Dr Cheung previous patients who gave me the final assurance I needed, so I booked the appointment. On the day of my procedure, yes I was very nervous but as soon as Dr Cheung and his team started my procedure I was instantly relaxed and I just loved how comfortable they made me feel, in fact we had quite a laugh, chatted about what was on TV last night. I thought I would be really freaked out by the fact that I was awake throughout the procedure but not at all. I was so proud of myself for going through with the procedure. I left thinking why did I get myself so worked up, there was nothing to it. I got home and as the anesthetic started to wear off I started to feel slight pain, I took 2 paracetamol, had a little sleep and woke up later and I was fine, I never took any more painkillers. Dr Cheung emailed me that evening to see how I was and reminded me of my after care. I followed his instructions by the letter and am so pleased with the results.
Had upper blepharoplasty (resetting of the eyelid crease ) in July 2017 at the Westbourne Centre. I had thoroughly researched occuloplastic surgeons and also saw some well known London based ones, however when I came across David's website I knew I had found the right surgeon. And I was not wrong, from the initial consultation he was very honest about what he can do and explained what may go wrong on occasion (although his results speak for themselves) so never felt rushed or pressured into having surgery. On the day of the surgery, the staff esp the nurses at the Westbourne were excellent, I was given local anesthetic, David checked in with me before surgery, he was calm throughout the procedure and reassuring, and followed up after it was over, with the first check up a week later. The results were completely natural giving a fresh new look without a dramatic change, there is no visible scarring as it was where the new creases were formed, and all in all no obvious sign of surgery. David's approach to his patients, with good communication throughout and personal touch really just sum up what a skilled surgeon and gentleman that he is and this is truly reflected in all his patients' testimonials. Surgery was well worth it.
I first saw Mr David Cheung in July 2017 as I had a basal cell carcinoma in the inner corner of my left eye. On examination he informed me that after removal I would need a skin graft. This did fill me with trepidation but I need not have worried as he has done a brilliant job! He was very easy to talk to, answering all my questions and made me feel positive about the outcome. The final result is so good that there is no sign that I have had surgery. Once again my sincere thanks to this excellent surgeon. Pamela Hill
Mr Cheung carried out 3 procedures: Bilateral lower lid entropian, bilateral brow lift, bilateral top lid reduction. Throughout the entire consultations, procedures and aftercare, every stage was fully explained to me. Mr Cheung was very easy to speak with and willing to discuss any concerns. I did not experience any problems after surgery, therefore I only had to attend the normal follow up checks. I have complete trust in Mr Cheung, cannot find fault in any part of the service and would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Cheung’s clinic.
