These stories and testimonials are sent to us by patients of Dr Koutroumanos, to describe their experience and how their life has been changed for the better…
When I found Mr Koutroumanos I had already endured a year of issues with several lesions around my eyes, bad surgeries and constant worry. The psychological impact is hard for people to understand unless they've experienced it. Having thought you've found experts to operate on you then realising they haven't performed with the necessary care or knowledge is unnerving. I have probably been a pain to deal with at times but Mr Koutroumanos has restored my faith in the medical profession, he's been unwaveringly supportive and kind, he operated on a cyst under my eye with the most meticulous precision and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone in need of a good occuloplastic surgeon. Too many surgeons in this field seem to be risk adverse unless there is a large sum of money attached and unwilling or unable to perform smaller surgeries. Some of the biggest names in this field are extremely profit driven and unsympathetic, Mr Koutroumanos is a very marked exception. A true gentleman and exceptional surgeon.
Our 3-year-old son, Alex, was referred to Mr. Nick Koutroumanos for congenital upper eyelid ptosis (i.e., droopy eyelids). His eyelids were drooping lower and Alex compensated by developing an abnormal head tilt to see better. Since our first appointment, Nick has always taken the time to answer our questions (we ask MANY questions) and he carefully weighed the best treatment options for Alex. Alex needed surgery on both of his eyelids and the decisions made at every step of the process felt like a partnership with Nick. We are very happy with the results of the surgeries. Especially post-op, we very much appreciate his vigilance to ensure Alex’s eyelids are healing properly. Alex’s field of vision has improved dramatically and he no longer has an abnormal head tilt. He’s more confident and adventurous, as well. Nick has a wonderful way with Alex. He’s incredibly warm, patient and understanding given Alex’s limited attention span. My son looks forward to his follow up appointments – he loves going to see Nick. Physician referrals can feel like the luck of the draw, but we feel incredibly lucky and grateful to have Alex under Nick’s expert and compassionate care.
Dr Nick Koutroumanos has performed my right upper eyelid anterior levator repair for congenital ptosis. To translate it into the human language, I had my right upper eyelid dropped significantly. I was born with this condition, but it was getting worse with an age. I was incredible lucky to meet Nick. He has explained to me all procedure, all pros and cons, what I can expect after surgery. I trusted him and he never disappointed me. Dr Nick did my surgery in August 2019. The result was seen immediately. The healing was going well and in 4 weeks my eyes were symmetric and beautiful again. I am very very pleased with the result. I cannot be more grateful to Nick for my magic transformation. I was hiding my eyes behind the glasses per ages. My family and friends are amazed with the result. Nick is an enormously talented surgeon. He has the gold hands and he knows exactly how to make it right. Nick is not only a surgeon, he is an artist who is capable to create the beautiful outcome. Nick is polite, approachable, professional, reliable, always happy to help. He is one of the best eyelid surgeon in UK. I have the right to say it as I see my eyes every day in the mirror. I am enormously grateful to him, and i do recommend Nick to everyone who has this problem.You can't be in the better hands. If anybody is considering this type of surgery, I am always ready to share the pictures of my eyes before and after surgery.
