To Mr Ataullah
Many thanks to you and all your staff for the care, kindness and attention shown to me with regard to my recent procedure. The skill and professionalism of all concerned was exemplary and the manner in which I was dealt with on the day was excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending your clinic and services as a place of excellence that patients can trust. Please pass on my gratitude and best wishes to everyone involved.
Kindest regards

I recently had filler at the Face and Eye clinic and couldn’t be more pleased with both the service I received, and the treatment. Ingrid undertook the process for me and throughout the consultation and treatment, her professionalism and general demeanour were excellent. When I underwent the treatment, a further nurse, Linda, was also involved in the process and she held my hand throughout the process to put me at ease.
Everyone I encountered at the clinic were friendly and helpful and the clinic itself is immaculate and a pleasure to attend.
It would be nice to think I won’t need any further treatments, but unfortunately ageing has probably put paid to that (!), but I wouldn’t hesitate to return to the Face and Eye clinic for any future treatments. I am also delighted with the results of the filler.
100% happy all round!

My experience of this clinic was very positive and I would thoroughly recommend it. I was initially slightly nervous about the procedure but after a consultation with Mr Leatherbarrow I decided to go ahead because my vision was becoming restricted due to drooping upper lids. The surgery on both eyes was expertly carried out by Mr Leatherbarrow and his team and I am very pleased with the resultant significant improvement. The procedure itself was painless and there was minimal discomfort afterwards. I would also like to mention the friendly, helpful and efficient Receptionist, Janet, plus a special mention for Ingrid who is a credit to the Clinic – professional, reassuring, supportive, friendly and efficient. Thank you to all at Face and Eye.

I had mullers muscle resection at the Face and Eye clinic in January 2019.  My experience prior to the procedure and with the aftercare has been amazing. I have had ptosis in my left eye since birth, this has always bothered me and is now corrected. Mr Leatherbarrow has been fab. I have felt confident with his knowledge and expertise and have been able to contact him and attend appointments when needed. The staff at the clinic have all been polite and helpful. I would recommend the Face and Eye clinic to anyone thinking about this kind of procedure.


Kate Healey


Mr Leatherbarrow gave me TCA treatment for fatty deposits in my lower eyelids for the third time in 10 years (they do return slowly over time with any treatment) . The results are amazing for such a simple, quick procedure. Mr Leatherbarrow is excellent; professional, caring and gentle. I can’t reccommend him and the clinic highly enough.

Mick Rothwell

“Eye” had a lower lid wedge resection under local anaesthetic by Dr Leatherbarrow. I can only recommend and commend the specialist and nursing staff (in particular, Ingrid) for their professionalism and exceptional care. All stages of the treatment and post-op care was superb. Healing was quick and almost pain-free without complications.


Gary Zolty


Professional, caring and competent. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I felt totally at ease and cared for by very experienced practitioners. I have every faith in their capabilities and have would have no hesitation in recommending their services.


Julia Payne


I am really happy with my results after having some fillers with Mr Leatherbarrow and his nurse Ingrid, they have amazing hands. Thank you for making me feel so comfortable throughout the painless procedure!


Isabel Lupiañez

First class service provided by the Face and Eye clinic. The whole procedure was explained in great detail by surgeon Mr John Cooper who was abley assisted by Mrs Linda Kelly throughout the process. I would have no hesitation in recommending this practice.


Philip Surtees


Had diagnosis of eyelid problem by Mr Leatherbarrow, which had been misdiagnosed elsewhere. He operated to correct the problem with complete success, and very good aftercare. A top surgeon!


Edward Ball


I had an bike accident some years ago. As a result of the accident my eyebrows were not level and the skin around my left upper eye had puckered and pulled. It was noticeable and I was very conscious. I had waited sometime to get my surgery I was nervous; it needed to be right. I researched many surgeons and decided to see Mr Leatherbarrow at Face and Eye. I knew my surgery would require a very detailed consultation and surgical procedure to get both eyes matching. During the consultation we discussed what I want to achieve from surgery and the best outcome that could be achieved. Not only did I want my eyebrows to be the same, I also wanted to look better but not as though I’d had an operation. Mr Leatherbarrow and his staff were fantastic and I am more than pleased with the results. The surgery he performed has rectified both the scaring and distortion around my eyebrow and upper lids. He also performed fat transfer around my eye and parts of my face. Mr Leatherbarrow is a perfectionist and very enthusiastic about his work. He will work to get the best results for you and that’s the kind of surgeon you want. If you are considering surgery or fat injections I would definitely recommend Mr Leatherbarrow at the Face and Eye Clinic. Surgery, nursing staff and aftercare is brilliant.


Elaine Monaghan

I had eye bags and hollowing of the upper eyelids which made me look older and tired. For over a year I consulted various plastic and oculoplastic surgeons mostly in London and whom appeared to have good reviews on the internet. However I was only met with disappointment. I encountered a mixture of rushed consultations, overconfidence, lack of experience and inaccurate assessments of my problems and could not feel at ease to go ahead with them. I searched far and wide and prayed to find the ideal oculoplastic surgeon. My prayers got granted when I came across Mr Brian Leatherbarrow at the Face and eye clinic in Manchester. Mr Brian Leatherbarrow is a Genius and a wizard. He understood what I wanted to achieve through surgery. He was very patient, meticulous in the assessment of my face and explained every step and options to me. I felt comfortable and empowered in taking an informed decision to go for a transconjunctival blepharoplasty with fat repositioning and fat transfer. The surgery went very well. The staff at the eye clinic Ingrid, Linda, Ellen, Joseph and Jenni (who was so caring and held my hand ) were amazing. I am very pleased with the results. When you are considering surgery around your eyes, you have to weigh down the risks carefully, and choose the best oculoplastic surgeon in the world like I did.


Cher Ami


Our 19 year old daughter was recently involved in an RTA which left her with a deep laceration to her eye area. Our local A&E dept glued the laceration; however, after a couple of weeks, it was becoming evident that she was going to be left with an extremely unsightly scar. Mr Leatherbarrow was amazing… He was extremely reassuring and explained treatment options without any pressure. Mr Leatherbarrow subsequently reopened the laceration and rectified the previous attempt with so much care. Our daughter’s eye is now healing extremely well, and we are positive she will be left with a much less obvious and neat scar. We cannot thank or recommend Mr Leatherbarrow and the team at Face & Eye highly enough. Thank you just isn’t sufficient!!!


Sonya Murphy


The staff at this clinic are amazing. Mr. Leatherbarrow is a top class surgeon who takes the utmost pride in his work. Speaking as a health professional, I can honestly say that the care and treatment I received at this clinic is second to none. I would highly recommend Mr. Leatherbarrow and his team to anyone. I am very happy with the results of my surgery, and the after care that I received as a patient at Face and Eye Clinic.


Angela Bernardo

From walking into reception to getting into theatre I felt I was well looked after and informed every step of the way.

After the op I was again – very well looked after and felt like I was given ample time to “get myself together” and leave in a more than able condition.

Thank you Face and Eye for making me feel like I was in safe and professional hands.

I would happily recommend Mr Leatherbarrow and the Face & Eye team!!!


R B B


Mr Leatherbarrow was excellent. Very professional and efficient with his time. I had been quoted a figure to remove a cyst from my eyelid and also to have some xanthelasmata removed. Whilst I was there Mr Leatherbarrow noticed another smaller cyst and a number of skin tags which he removed at no extra cost. I would highly recommend the Face and Eye clinic.


Les Day


I would like to thank Mr Ataullah and his team at the Face and Eye Clinic for the excellent care I have received. All the staff are extremely kind and attentive and I have been very pleased with the results of my treatment.


Lesley M

Everyone at Face & Eye treated me exceptionally from reception to the operating theatre I can’t fault any aspect of the experience. I felt well informed about the process and well cared for throughout. I was particularly impressed with the meticulous pre-op preparation and the in-theatre experience. Thank You.


Neville Eden


The staff were all lovely, especially as I was quite nervous about my eye operation. It was all done in a very friendly and professional way, and the op went according plan. Thank you all.


TJS


After suffering for over 16 years with a persistent corneal abrasion I was really getting to the end of my tether. I had been going around in circles and getting absolutely nowhere with the NHS when I discovered Mr. Ikram.

Within a couple of weeks of my initial consultation my treatment had started. I have now had surgery and thankfully no recurrence of the problem.

Mr. Ikram was always available if I needed to speak to him and answered my e-mail queries promptly.

Would I recommend Face and Eye Clinic and Mr. Ikram – absolutely.

My only regret is that I didn’t find him much sooner!


Anne Mountfield

After an accident as a teenager. I was left with tissue loss to my left eye lid and a raised eyebrow,causing imbalance.Which greatly affected my self confidence. I visited Mr Leatherbarrow on a couple of occasions to discuss various options that might rectify the problem.Mr Leatherbarrow gave me helpful, realistic information and at no time did I feel under any pressure to proceed with any procedures. After considering the options carefully I decided to go ahead with an upper lid fat pearl graft, upper lid blepharoplasty and a conservative brow lift to the right eye to balance things out.

I just want to say a huge thank to the whole team at Face and Eye Clinic. I was made to feel completely at ease and safe from the reception team to the wonderful caring nurses. I had never had sedation before and a big thank you to Dr P Lancaster. I wasn’t aware of anything!

Finally thank you to Mr Leatherbarrow who has given me my eyes back and my self confidence. I am delighted with the results and appreciate all of your time and patience in getting there. This was a huge decision for me to go ahead with this procedure.

I would recommend Face and Eye clinic with complete confidence in their before and after care. Especially Mr Leatherbarrow.


Jo Harris


It is such a pleasure to visit Face and Eye in Northenden. The reception staff are welcoming and very helpful, as are the clinic nurses, who are caring and friendly. I am extremely pleased that I chose to entrust Mr Saj Ataullah with my eye surgery. I could not have had better attention and care. Delighted with the outcome too.

I wrote the above review a couple of years ago. Recently I returned to Face & Eye, and in particular to consult Mr Ataullah about a different concern. Delighted to confirm that my initial review still stands. Excellent surgeon and support team.

I have now had a temporary stent insertion to help improve epiphora. An effective solution. Good result.
Just wish that Face & Eye was closer to home, but without doubt worth my long journey.


Barbara Weston


I suffered from clouded vision following cataract surgery, which was both debilitating and depressing. Mr Ikram gave me a very thorough examination, a clear explanation of the cause and the laser treatment available to correct this. This was carried out very efficiently and successfully. It was a huge relief to be able to see clearly again. The optician, Rebecca, was also very careful and helpful. I felt confident and reassured throughout. I can now get on with my life! Thank you.


Val from Stockport

I wish to express my sincere and grateful thanks to you and your team for the treatment I received during my operations for the removal of cateracts from both my eyes. I could never have imagined that my sight would be restored to such an extent that I no longer need to wear glasses, except for reading small print. Through your dedicated work and care my sight is now excellent and I haven renewed confidence in my daily life.


Marjorie Archer

I detailed my concerns with regards to the ongoing deterioration to the vision in my left eye, my right eye being ‘prosthetic’ as a result of a sporting injury back in the early seventies. Since my initial contact the level of your counselling and understanding of my concern, also your surgical skills, culminating with successful cataract surgery and lens implants has more than surpassed my expectations.


John Cooper


I am writing to thank the Face and Eye team for the advice and care you have given me recently with regards to the my eye lid operation. The difference in my sight is absolutely phenomenal, better than it has been for the last 15 years. With the cataract surgery from Mr.Lavin and your eye lid surgery I no longer require glasses for normal wear or reading. It is just wonderful to be able to see properly and to take everything in without looking and feeling permanently tired.


John Moehle

i would like to thank and congratulate you and the team for the excellent and very professional treatment I recently received concerning my watering eye and the removal of a large dacryolith. It was a refreshingly different experience than that of dealing with the NHS. The staff and facilities at Face and Eye are excellent and throughout the whole process you provided me with all the expert treatment, information and reassurance I needed.


Carl Mead

It is now five months since I underwent a Blepharoplasty under the expert care of Mr.Ataullah at the Face and Eye Clinic. From my initial consultation I felt the attention right from the admin staff, nursing staff through to my consultant was second to none. The post operative care by Mr.Ataullah gave me security and confidence. My eyes healed very quickly and there is not even a trace of evidence from the operation. I am very grateful to Mr.Ataullah and all his wonderful team.


Sylvia Shoshana Benovaich


Thank you for the care and patience you took over the Juvederm injections that I had recently. I had not had any cosmetic treatments before and was a bit nervous as to wether to go ahead. I was grateful for the free initial consultation when you explained everything clearly and answered my questions. I came for injections and then a top up session a fortnight later. You discussed each area of my face with me before carrying out the injections so that you were able to give me the result I wanted.


Amanda Baker

Just wanted to say that I am absolutely delighted with the results of yesterday’s treatment – and on top of that, there is almost no discomfort, whereas after previous treatments it has been extremely uncomfortable. Really pleased.


Pam Newbury

When I first came to see you, i felt concerned and confused following consultations with four other surgeons who all failed to make an accurate diagnosis. I left the Face and Eye clinic feeling knowledgeable  and confident. it is really evident that you and your wonderful team sincerely care about your patients and their comfort and I shall be eternally grateful to you all.


Vanessa Danielson


The whole experience of Face and Eye was excellent. All the staff from the receptionist’s, nurses, anesthetist and of course the doctor was very caring. If an operation could be stressful this was not. Also I was very touched when I was called personally on the Friday to see how I was. I would like to wish the team at Face and Eye every success in the future.


Julian Rhodes

After months of trying various other treatments for watering eyes within only eight weeks from first seeing Face and Eye, I no longer have any problems with them. Even though you did explain everything thoroughly beforehand, I was really nervous about the operation but the staff were really kind and reassuring.


Jane Cowen

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the fantastic result I have had following my recent Botox treatment. As you know I have a rather lazy left eye and achieving level eyebrows has presented much difficulty in the past. But not since I have been coming to see you! And while you achieve real results, you also manage to maintain a natural look which I feel makes you stand out as a practitioner.


Maureen


Excellent!!! Today i had a Cyst removed from my upper eyelid by John Cooper who was assisted by Linda. The procedure was explained very carefully to me and was made painless. I was treated with great care and professionalism. A big thank you to all including the lovely Ellen on reception.


Paula Shannon

It is now four weeks since the procedure on my eyelid. It has healed with no problems im glad to say and my eye feels more comfortable now. Even in this bright sun we have had recently, wearing my sunglasses of course. The eyedrops you gave me for night time use have helped and Im still using the Hydro forte drops frequently and I feel if i can keep the irritation to this level I can cope.

I really appreciate  that you listened to my tale of woe and the swift treatment of my problem.
