"Very professional from start to finish, ended up coming back again for more treatment. After care was also very good. I was contacted the day after my treatment. Extremely pleased with my results." Steph, Birmingham - March 2014

"Throughout my life I was plagued by a potbelly and excess fat around my middle. Although I stepped up my exercising to three/four times a week and ate healthily, nothing would shift the excess weight. I lost count of the number of times I was asked if I was pregnant, clothes buying was limited and I felt heavy and unattractive.
While sitting in my dentist’s waiting room, I read a vaser-lipo case study of The Private Clinic in Harper’s & Queen and was very impressed. I rang and spoke to someone at The Private Clinic and was sent a brochure. I then met with Dr Dennis Wolf in July 2013. He was very kind, answered all my questions in a direct, matter-of-fact way and I found him easy to talk to. He looked at my tummy (I was embarrassed but he made me feel it was OK) and then suggested as well as having the excess fat removed from my tummy, I should have treatment to my flanks.
On the day of surgery, I had hardly slept the night before and felt quite shaky. The team of nurses and anaesthetist were friendly and upbeat, though; I was also reassured by Dr Wolf’s professionalism and approachability. I was given conscious sedation but I was so tired, I actually slept through the whole procedure! When I woke up, I learned that three litres of fat had been removed from my middle. I felt calm and peaceful, knowing I had made the right decision and chosen the right people to take care of me.
The aftercare notes were excellent, as were the checks with Dr Wolf and Grace, one of the nurses. Afterwards, any questions I had were dealt with promptly by email following consultation with Dr Wolf. And the best news of all is that I now have a beautiful, feminine shape, thanks to Dr Wolf’s vision. I am thrilled with my lovely flat tummy and my confidence grows daily. I’m also amazed at how quickly I healed with the reassuring backup of Dr Wolf and his team, plus the recommended regular lymphatic massage. I cannot thank you enough – you have changed my life."

"Receptionist was very helpful and friendly."
“I recently made a decision to opt for liposuction on my abdomen having spent almost five years trying to shed my post-baby body fat. Having achieved good overall results with a personal trainer, a lot of jogging, low fat diet etc I could not shift some stubborn fat from this area. I researched various techniques for eliminating small pockets of body fat and having read about micro-cannular using the ‘wet’ technique – (pioneered in America by Dr Klein), went ahead with the procedure in the UK.
I had a consultation with Dr Gupta at The Private Clinic of Harley Street who talked me through the entire procedure, including various alternative options, my expectations, post-surgery care and pain control. I was told to expect that it could take several months to see the final results and that I absolutely must wear post-surgical garments including an abdominal binder to really enhance the final look.
I received a pamphlet of pre-surgery advice along with a prescription for anti-biotics which I commenced the the day before my procedure. On the day I nervously arrived at the clinic to be welcomed by Dr Gupta who has the most wonderful inter-personal skills of any doctor I have ever met (and I have worked in the NHS for over 20 years now). He was genuinely interested in my areas of concern – at that point they were mainly pain control, my nerves and how long it would be before I could play polo again.
I was carefully prepared for surgery and then had photographs taken of the area to be improved. Dr Gupta drew on my abdomen with a blue marker pen to ensure that he addressed the areas that I was concerned about. I was then injected with local anesthetic which I can honestly say I did not feel at all, before the area was then saturated with liquid containing local anesthetic (the ‘wet’ bit) and tunnels were made into the layers of fat. Dr Gupta chatted away with me throughout the entire procedure whilst we listened to music. We also discussed his recent appearance on ‘Embarrassing Bodies’. I felt as though I was amongst friends as the theatre staff talked with me about their
cosmetic surgery experiences whilst waiting for the saturated area to become fully numb. I appreciated how much care and attention was paid to ensuring that I was fully anaesthetized and pain free in preparation for the actual suction of the body fat.
The second and final part of the procedure involved the suction of the fat which was much more gentle than the suction I have seen on TV. I had expected it to be arduous for the surgeon with sweat on his brow, but in actual fact it was more like a gentle wrist action on his part as he pushed the cannulae in and out of the fatty area. I could hear a sucking sound and watched as the blood stained yellow fat was sucked up into a measuring jug on the stand next to me – almost 500ml in total. The area was then wiped dry and the tiny holes (just five in total) were dressed before I had help getting into my very tight post-surgery garment.
Dr Gupta was an absolute perfectionist throughout, always ensuring that I was his focus and comfortable. He has a rapport with his patients that leads to a feeling of complete trust and confidence in his abilities and that his priorities are patient safety, great aesthetic results and an overall positive experience. I would recommend him to anybody who is considering liposuction but can’t take time off work or bear pain.
I was told to avoid exercise for 7 days but I was easily well enough to go for a vigorous walk the following morning, do the school run, cook and do desk based work. I was back on my horse and getting ready for pre-season training within two days of my procedure I felt so well. My results have been super – I thoroughly enjoyed being able to wear a bikini with confidence again during our family holiday and look forward to many more as I have been assured that the fat cells sucked away that day will never reappear.”

"I would like to say an enormous “Thank You” to both Dr Alberto Di Guiseppe and Dr Dennis Wolf at The Private Clinic for the brilliant work they did and the terrific results achieved with the Fat Grafting (Organic Facelift) they performed on me for facial rejuvenation! They are highly professional and highly skilled in their area of expertise with the added advantage of an eye for fine detail and proportion, which is vital in this field in order to achieve 100% success and client satisfaction. From my first visit with Dr Wolf, and then subsequent visits with him and Dr Di Guiseppe I felt very comfortable in the knowledge that I was with a highly skilled professional team. The great detail that everything is discussed in and the actual explaining of where the grafting will be done to regain areas where fat has been lost without exaggerating any aspect left me feeling very confidant that I had selected the very best possible team in this field. What is absolutely wonderful about this procedure too is the fact that unlike fillers the grafting is soft and allows the muscles and the face to move naturally so that you don’t have the typical mask appearance that one so often sees with fillers! It takes years off without leaving you with a “plastic unnatural look”! Both Dr Di Guiseppe and Dr Wolf are very quick to inform you and guide you should they feel that anything you request would not leave you with the best possible outcome! Thank you also to the nursing staff for the excellent care in theatre and post procedure, an excellent team!! Sincere thanks and best wishes."
