We have satisfied patients from all over the UK and internationally. Don't just take our word for it, here's theirs.
I was very nervous about my R Facelift procedure with Mr Riaz, which also entailed a (please put the correct name of the eye and the nose procedures) as he recommended after the consultation. Now, six months after the procedure, any minor swelling and scars have vanished, and the results are truly spectacular. I am 56 but I know I look at least 15 years younger and also a lot more beautiful! I am complimented a lot on my looks which is always lovely. Mr Riaz's approach could be described as conservative, which means that the results are very natural looking and simply makes me look much fresher and younger. I combined the R Lift with a course of facial treatments which addressed the residual pigmentation caused by sun exposure, as of course surgery does not address this. I can only say I am thrilled to bits with the results and would highly recommend Mr Riaz to anyone considering a facelift or associated procedures.

I am highly delighted, to put it mildly, with the fantastic results of the R facelift performed by Mr Riaz in November 2015, and a more recent Brachioplasty (arm lift) surgery that I had a couple of weeks ago. The results of the facelift are amazing, and I’ve had nothing but compliments from colleagues and friends, and there are no visible scars whatsoever. As a result of the Brachioplasty, I have the slim arms of a teenager!! Thank you, Mr Riaz, for restoring my confidence in myself.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to Mr Riaz following breast reduction surgery in November 2015. It is something I had thought about and wanted for a very long time, and as soon as I met Mr Riaz I am instilled with confidence that it was the right thing to do and that he was the best surgeon for the job - I sensed a perfectionist. The results are nothing short of fantastic. The physical and obvious result is a pair of smaller, pert, rounded, lifted breasts (the likes of which I only saw on me for a couple of teenage years!) which are in perfect proportion to my body.
A less anticipated but highly significant result is that my whole stance has changed; partly due to carrying less weight around on my chest but more due to an increased confidence; the self-conscious awkwardness about my breasts which I have had for years has simply disappeared. Clothes which flatter and fit are so much easier to come by with zips and shirt buttons no longer flinching in an attempt to fasten, and it is less painful and easier to run, swim, dance etc. It is now four months since the operation which was done as day surgery, no overnight stay required, the wounds healed very well, the scars are now fading nicely, and I have not experienced any problems. I was never in any doubt that I would be pleased with the results of this surgery, but the reality has far exceeded what I had hoped for; to say it has been life-changing sounds dramatic but is the truth. I am totally in awe of the skill involved and truly grateful for the results, thank-you.

I would like to take this opportunity to express to you my most heartfelt appreciation not only for your courage and skill but your pioneering vision to help people living with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Living with such a diagnosis is a daily challenge, thank you for teaching me the difference between a diagnosis fact and faith. The fact is when so many Doctors were so discourteous and shattered my dreams. Fact is when I met you, and the faith you had changed my destiny. Before saying you are an extraordinary Doctor, I want to tell you that you are an extraordinary human being, thank you for learning all you have and for passing that learning on to others. Thank you for your contribution in my life and for being so careful with me. The secret to my amazing recovery is due to your talent and expertise; I am so grateful to you and your team. The surgery and the results have given my life a new beginning saying “thank you” seems so insufficient but I can find no words that truly express my feelings appropriately, so I use these two simple words with the hope that you know the depth of emotion and gratitude they contain.

Travelling thousands of miles from Jordan to Mr Riaz’s clinic in Hull-UK was worth all the effort. His professionalism, courtesy, competency, keen follow up, and sincerity are qualities that give his patients reassurance and comfort. He has this remarkable ability to know what every patient exactly needs to feel better about her looks and look better. I was very impressed with what he did to my face. He is meticulous and skilled in producing a beautiful effect without overdoing the facelift. I saw natural youthful looks and pleasant harmony. Swellings and bruises after the surgery cause the patient to worry and even panic. Not only his work method resulted in minimum swellings and bruises, but he also would use his scientific and evidence-based knowledge to reassure the patient that it’s a matter of two or three weeks, and all will settle down. His approach makes the patient feel that she is unique and not just another patient or customer.
Yes, Mr Riaz, I appreciate all that you did to help me to go smoothly through an experience that for years I was hesitant to go through. It’s been now 16 days since I had the operation but I already feel happy with the progress I am making. Thanks so much for your conscientious work, brilliant results, and for taking good care of your patients. Long distance is not at all an obstacle with such worthy results. Bless you!
Hana - R Facelift & Upper Blepharoplasty
My son is a Plastic Surgery trainee and worked under Mr Riaz in his NHS practice a few years ago. He always told me that if he trusted anyone to operate on his mother (me), it would be Mr Riaz. I developed facial signs of ageing at a comparatively younger age and was especially conscious of my jowls and excess neck skin during my 60’s as I began looking much older than my other half who hardly has any wrinkles. At 70, I decided to do something about it and visited Mr Riaz for a consultation. He was an extremely friendly and humble surgeon who discussed my concerns and took the time to explain in detail how each concern could be addressed. I requested time to think about going under the knife and came back a year later with the determination to undergo his R – face & neck lift with neck liposuction. He was flexible with dates as I flew in from Pakistan for the operation and accommodated me at a weekend of my choice. His anaesthetist Dr Rafique took on board my complicated anaesthetic history and tailored it so that I would undergo a safe anaesthetic. Mr Riaz himself was extremely professional.
The post-operative care (including the application of the facial corset) was all undertaken personally by him, and as I had to go back to Pakistan soon after the procedure, he even accommodated my request for absorbable sutures. I am a doctor (Gynaecologist) myself, and everyone says that doctors make the worst patients. However, Mr Riaz did not make me feel awkward on any occasion. He stayed in communication with me and answered all my post-operative queries in the most appropriate manner.
After the operation, I was in hospital overnight and then went home. I went shopping to Tesco wearing the facial corset without any problems. A week after the operation, there was no pain, and I undertook my daily chores without much restriction. Three weeks after the surgery, my son arranged a makeover, and photo shoot for my friends and me on Facebook commented that I suddenly looked like I had looked in my 30s. My husband was speechless with happiness when he saw me (as I had kept my surgery a secret from him) and he still occasionally looks at me with amazement.
It has now been a month since the operation, and I feel like a different woman who is much happier and confident. My journey as a patient was facilitated by Mr Riaz’s team (his secretary Gale, his nurse Annette, his anaesthetist Dr Rafique and the rest of the Spire staff who were all exceptionally nice), but most of all it was the attention to detail by Mr Riaz, both towards my face and also towards me as a patient that gave me immense satisfaction. I am so happy with the outcome that I hope to come back to him next summer to have my upper face (eyelids/brows) addressed.”

Mr Riaz is truly a gentleman he’s kind and patient and easy to talk to. I am only two weeks post op and have to say his work is exceptional. I am delighted with the results on my face and eyes which are healing so fast I’m amazed. My arms are coming on nicely but obviously, take more time but have been assured it has gone really well.
From consultation through to post-op he’s always happy to see you and answer any questions you may have without making you feel like your bothering him. His staff are the same Karen and Gail are so helpful they put you at ease and make you feel cared for and cared about. I would have no reservations about recommending Mr Riaz and his team. Money can’t buy peace of mind, and you get that and more. A huge thank you to you all for your expertise and care you have given me.
Susan - R Facelift & Upper and Lower Eye & Arm Lift
I’ve always struggled with confidence because of how my nose looked, I’ve also always had reservations having toyed with the idea of surgery for about 4/5 years, but I cannot recommend Dr Riaz and his team enough! His secretary Gale was very reassuring and professional. Dr Riaz has completely changed my life and I am truly thankful for what he and his team have done for me.
I cannot explain how happy I am with the results, a very very clever guy who is also realistic about the results he can achieve for you, very professional but also very humble. I’ve gone from putting my head down as I walk into a room to holding my head up with confidence, I also struggled slightly with my breathing when exercising...not anymore because I have nostrils now. Thank you so much
Jay - Rhinoplasty
I would like to give a huge thank you to Mr Riaz and his team. I had wanted my surgery for five years but had put it off due to being scared and nervous. After been recommend Mr Riaz by so many people, I booked a mini consultation.
Safe to say I was no longer afraid as Riaz made me feel comfortable and at ease from the start. From start to finish I have been delighted and impressed! I have and will keep recommending Mr Riaz and Spire Hull as I think he’s fantastic. Thank you so much!!!
Amber - Breast Enlargement
I would like to thank you for allowing me to attend your operating list on 18/06/16 at The Spire Hospital, Hull. The R Facelift was a joy to watch and a face-lifting method that will no doubt benefit patients and aesthetic surgeons, alike; the reduced downtime and simplicity in approach, relative to other surgical techniques, respectively. This facelift, as we discussed, is a welcome and much-needed addition to the armamentarium of the aesthetic surgeon when the High Street seems to be stealing the show with less interventional procedures, for cosmetic improvement in the face and neck.
I can say, that having attended your surgical demonstration of the R Facelift, I now feel better placed to undertake the procedure and thereby offer it to the patients I see, as part of the spectrum of face-lifts, I do.
I should also like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for taking the time and trouble to teach the procedure. May I similarly thank the Spire staff for making me feel welcome.
Will let you know, when I’ve done my first R Facelift.
