  • Dear Mr Orlando, A note to thank you for your excellent work on my lip. Despite my nervousness at looking in the mirror when the stitches were removed, I was absolutely thrilled when I saw how you had kept the wound to the lip and done such a fabulously neat job. I may have appeared ungrateful after the "procedure" but I am extremely grateful now. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Ann

  • Removal of implants and replacement breast augmentation Faith in plastic surgeons restored! Following the break of the PIP scandal and a subsequent year of worry and frustration I made contact with Mr Mercer via a recommendation and he was like a breath of fresh air! Mr Mercer, and his amazing team, were on the button with understanding, communication and respect from the offset and gave me instant peace of mind. I knew from the initial meeting with Mr M that I was in good hands. Surgery and the healing process went without a hitch. Thank you Mr Mercer, you're fab!

  • Two stage breast surgery From the age of twelve I had breast asymmetry. I was bullied throughout school which had a dramatic effect on my self esteem. I hid behind clothes, dreaded shopping and felt frumpy. Since having two corrective procedures with Mr Mercer my life has completely changed. I have confidence I never thought possible. I not only feel normal but attractive. All I ever wanted was nice, normal breasts and I feel that the breast you have given me are fantastic. They are everything I wanted and more. No amount of money could give me the feeling your surgery has given me. You are the kindest and most caring surgeon I have met and have understood my needs and have gone above and beyond my expectations. You have restored my faith in plastics surgeons and changed my life for the better. I am very grateful.

  • Two stage excision of tattoo It is nearly a year since the second and final stage of my tattoo removal and I wish I had a photo to send you, but if I did, you wouldn’t see much, since there is barely anything to see! You did a wonderful job, Mr Mercer. I feel such gratitude to you for taking it away so skilfully and you even made me laugh while you did it.

  • Facelift Personal attention is hard to find these days. I came away from the consultation feeling at last that my life could be improved and I that had hope for the future. I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your care before, during and after my operation. You have done an outstanding job and I am so very happy with the results. I am very grateful.

  • Removal of mole from face Many thanks Mr Mercer to you and your very professional team who made me feel very relaxed a d all seem very painless.

  • Breast Augmentation Your help and efforts are much appreciated. I am so happy with the results.

  • Breast Reduction Thank you so much for making my procedure and care stress free. You have done an outstanding job and I am very grateful.
