Plastic surgery can be life changing. My web site, like my practice, aims to make your plastic surgery experience as easy and positive as possible.

I am an experienced plastic surgeon. I work with a small, dedicated team, and together, we will care for you from start to finish. Apart from some social responsibility work (for children with cleft lip and palate), my practice is exclusively cosmetic surgery.

My philosophy is to keep things simple, that less can be more, that safety is paramount and that the patient – you – come first. My goal is satisfied patients. Satisfaction is achieved when your expectations are met and you achieve what you were hoping for. Satisfied patients are what keep me happy in my work and my practice busy.

Dear Dr. Lazarus,

I hope all is well with you?

3 months have passed since I had my baggy eyelids trimmed back! I have to say I am very happy with the results. I suffered quite bad bruising for around one month after the surgery [redheads!], but absolutely no pain at all and I am very happy with the results 3 months later. I can just about not see the scars and can also not really feel them any longer. I am also very happy with the shape of my eyes after the surgery.

Thank you so much.

Warm regards from Hong Kong
