I've deliberately held off a few weeks before writing this post as I've been waiting to see the final results before committing to a testimony for Greg O'Toole. It has been three weeks since I had earfold surgery on my left ear - which was much more prominent than my right - and I am very pleased with the results.
I'd done a significant amount of research into the surgery before I had approached anyone and made my decision to meet Mr O'Toole for a consultation having seen some of the positive results he had.
For me, the subject of my ear is quite an emotional one and something I've tried to avoid for most of my life. What I wanted from the consultation with Mr O'Toole was a realistic and non-emotional assessment and a clear indication of what could be achieved. It is exactly what he gave me: clearly explaining the risks, the procedure and the fact that perfect symmetry is difficult due to the tissue in my ear. I was nervous but he put me at ease.
Following this conversation I felt pretty confident in his hands and I decided to go ahead with the surgery in Harley Street. Despite a slight mishap on the day (he'd forgotten to take the earfold implants - but to his credit went straight home and picked them up) the surgery was quick, relatively painless and I felt that I was in the hands of a professional. He was also friendly and informative, and while supremely confident in what he was doing I saw no arrogance. I left with a slightly swollen ear but feeling comfortable that Mr O'Toole had done his job to the high standard I'd expected and paid for.
It's now three weeks on and my ear is almost completely healed and looking great. I've had my first 'above the ears' haircut in about 20 years and I'm very happy with the results.
Given this experience - and I realise it is only one point of view and it is alway worth looking at the experiences of a number of people before committing to surgery - I'd absolutely recommend Mr O'Toole for anyone considering earfold surgery and looking for a confident, professional and extremely confident surgeon they will feel comfortable with.
