I am very cautious, particularly when it comes to having 'non medically essential' surgery. I had read some reviews about Mr Amir and overheard a couple of nurses at the McCindoe Centre saying how brilliant he was and how amazing his results were. I had wanted to have my eye bags treated for several years but was wary. After doing a little more research I discovered that Mr Amir can perform many of his cosmetic procedures under local anaesthetic and that is what sold it to me. I absolutely did not want a general anaesthetic. I had the procedure done at his clinic in the Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells and was massively impressed with the facilities, the cleanliness and the friendliness of his colleagues. Mr Amir himself is very easy going and relaxed and supremely confident and I can honestly say that at no time at all did I feel remotely anxious or nervous. I also appreciated the fact that he did not, at any stage, try to persuade me to have more done than I wanted. I chose to have a local anaesthetic and a sedative and my only wish is that the sedative was more readily available - it was like 2 bottles of champagne but without the hangover. During the surgery itself everyone was relaxed and joking - it was way better than a trip to the dentist. Mr Amir works with delicacy, speed and accuracy and you know you are in the hands of someone exceptional. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
