Grace's tummy tuck and breast uplift
" I had abdominoplasty and mastopexy procedure done at Medbelle. My personal advisor Cameron was amazing he was very patient with me as I had a lot of questions. He gave me good advice and he would send me all the stuff I need to read or videos about the procedure. He was always there if I need any help. My surgeon doctor Foiz Ahmed is brilliant I made the right choice he explained everything i wanted to know he didn't rush me. I was happy with all appointments i had with him before and after surgery. He took his time answering all my questions. Doctor Ahmed is amazing surgeon I'm very happy with my new body and the outcome. I was looked after very well after surgery. I have recovered very well no problems. If anyone is looking for good experienced surgeon don't hesitate to contact doctor Ahmed Foiz you will not regret."

"I recently had breast augmentation with medbelle at the one hatfield hospital & I cannot fault a thing. My patient advisor Cameron was there from start to finish with any question or queries & was always happy to help. My surgeon Mr Ahmed listened to exactly what I wanted & I’m so pleased with the results. Would 100% recommend! "
Denise's breast uplift and tummy tuck
"When I initially signed up for surgery, I was very nervous as I'd never done anything like this before. When I met my surgeon Mr Ahmed, I left feeling confident that I would be in good hands, and between him and Cameron, my personal Medbelle adviser, I haven't regretted my choice for a second. Mr Ahmed has done an amazing job and I am so so happy with the results, and Cameron was always available for me to check any questions I had both before and after the surgery - no matter how stupid I thought my questions might be! The whole team have been completely professional, patient and friendly the entire process and I am so glad I chose them to have my surgery through."
Dae's breast enlargement
"I could not be happier with my results and the support I have received from the very first phone call. Katie C was my personal support and she was always available, knowledgeable and helpful with any concern/questions I may have had. I never felt pressured into making a decision and was always given plenty of time to consider any decisions to be made. Dr Ahmed performed the procedure and he was simply brilliant. My final result was having two different size implants being put in as he noticed during the surgery that one breast was slightly larger than the other. When I was told what I had, I was very thankful that he was prepared to consider this option in order for me to have the most achievable symmetry. The recovery was more painful than I had expected but was all very manageable with pain relief. I am two weeks post-surgery, so happy with my results but know I will be even happier as the swelling goes down. The cherry on the top was receiving a lovely care package from the Medbelle Team yesterday!"
Tania's breast enlargement for tubular breasts
Couldn’t be happier with my experience 10/10!
The whole process at Medbelle has been exceptional. As someone who can be quite anxious, I’m really glad I went with this company as they have gave me more than enough information throughout to keep me from worrying. If you’re deliberating between places, know that what I found unique about Medbelle is their level of service and customer care. I had a lovely care advisor, Cameron, who called and messaged me regularly at every stage of the process. Having someone who you can be more personable with really helped me feel comfortable and less stressed. In terms of my breast surgery, I wouldn’t have wanted to have my surgery done by anyone except Dr Ahmed. He’s highly knowledgeable in breast surgery and special cases (which mine was). I liked the fact that he was able to vocalise his thoughts on which size would suit me when I stated I wanted a natural result. I’m glad I went with his recommendation as he knew better than me about what I wanted! Thank you once again for everything! I’m so happy!
LF's breast uplift
Best decision I have ever made
I have had such a great experience with Medbelle and Mr Ahmed. I honestly can’t recommend him enough.
Katie from Medbelle has been so lovely and helpful, everything was organised for me which made the whole process so stress-free and simple. She stayed in contact with me the whole time and was always available if I had any questions or concerns.
I met Mr Ahmed twice before the procedure, I was very nervous but he is such a lovely kind man and I felt instantly at ease with him.
He explained everything to me and we spoke about realistic outcomes which was perfect he showed me before and after photos of other patients which really helped me picture what is realistic for me.
I was booked in for surgery shortly after my second consultation with him.
My surgery went great and I was surprised at how comfortable I felt after there was hardly any pain at all.
I was given clear aftercare instructions which I followed and am so pleased with my results I honestly can’t thank Mr Ahmed enough.
I am so pleased I chose him for my surgery, his work is mind-blowing I never expected such an amazing outcome the results are much more than I imagined it really has changed my life for the better especially in terms of comfort I am so much more comfortable standing up straight and my posture was better from when I woke up from the surgery.
I would recommend to anyone considering surgery to see Mr Ahmed you will not be disappointed he truly is a miracle worker.
Thank you again Medbelle and most importantly thank you Mr Ahmed I will be forever grateful to you.
Megan's breast reduction
"This has taken me a while to post, I thought I had submitted my review long ago but I was informed that it didn't go through. A lot has happened since then but now I have finally found time to write my honest review for this experience. I am keeping myself anonymous because I wish for people to respect my privacy.
My breasts were always a big insecurity of mine but over time I forced myself to love it because I was born with it and I didn't want to hate a part of me that I've been raised with. It was my body and I didn't want to make a big deal out of it no matter how much it stood out and made me feel uncomfortable.
As I grew older, however, between ages 14-16, I realised then that I was feeling extraordinary pain on my shoulder blades and over time it would cause an ache throughout my whole arm. Even though I have bought myself multiple different bra's - different width straps to help decrease the pain, neither was working. Eventually, I decided to lose some weight because I thought it would help make the cups of my boobs smaller, but the only change that occurred was a shrink in my body size whilst my breasts stayed exactly the same size. This time the pain was worse, I felt like it was because I lost weight, that my body couldn't handle the weight of my breasts and as time passed, I started walking with a hunch to help lift a bit of the weight off my shoulders, but that only arouse another problem for my spine.
I tried exercising, I was told and heard experiences that breasts can shrink within size if you do certain exercises specifically designed for the chest. But then I realised that I couldn't even do jumping jacks, a small jog or a normal cardio session because of how much my breasts were moving - it was causing a stretching pain and even though I have bought myself sports bras from different; cheap-expensive companies and tried binding my breasts to my chest so that it won’t move, it only caused me to feel suffocated and find breathing difficulties because of how compressed my breasts were to my chest.
The reason for me writing this is because I know people would like to know if they can try to reduce the size of their breasts by dieting or exercise, but I'm here to make people aware that it’s not a method that works for just anyone. Yes, everyone should try the non-surgical way to try and reduce their breasts, but for anyone thinking why it isn't working for them or why hasn't anything changed for them, it's because not everyone’s body reacts to something the same way.
Hence why at this young age, at 18, I made the decision to get a breast reduction and it took a lot of conflicts and convincing between my family and me until they finally accepted my request and let me have my breasts reduced on the 22nd November 2019.
Mr Foiz Ahmed was my doctor and I had only met him twice but it was enough for me to be rest assured that he would perform a successful operation on me. From the beginning of time when I first booked my consultation, I have had Cameron from Medbelle talk with me throughout the whole time and provide me details for anything I would ask for whilst supporting me to the very end. I was in a very conflicting situation where I almost had to call it quits but he stayed patient with me until everything worked out. I cannot begin to express my gratitude towards the nurses that accompanied me during the night from when my surgery finished. Leah Casey, Kinsty Roberts and Ana Leite. My apologies if I have spelt anyone’s name wrong or have missed anyone out.
Medbelle by far has nothing but a 10/10 review from my experience. My breasts are at a smaller size and the shape is amazing which was something I wasn’t even focused on. I was also given advice for aftercare and how to massage around the areas of the stitches and what I should eat for a faster recovery. Hands down the greatest and most down to Earth people I have ever met, and one of the greatest decisions of my life. I recommend 100%. Thank you 😊"

"I cannot recommend Medbelle and my surgeon Mr Ahmed at One Hatfield Hospital enough :-)
From the moment I had an initial phone call with Kelly, my personal advisor at Medbelle, she put me at ease and answered any questions I asked.
I was put in touch with Mr Ahmed for an initial no-obligation consultation and he was great. He listened to what I wanted, answered all my questions and there was never any pressure from him at all. I tried on sizers and felt comfortable with the size I had chosen. When I went for my second consultation I tried on the sizers again and actually decided to go slightly bigger. Mr Ahmed was very patient with me trying on the sizers to make sure I would be happy with the end result.
Fast forward to surgery day - 14th Feb (my Valentine treat!!) and I was the first one in for surgery that day. He came to visit me beforehand to fill in paperwork etc and very much put me at ease. He then came back to see me later that day and the next morning as I stayed in the hospital for 1 night.
I have since been back to see him for my 2-week post-op appointment and everything is going well. I can't believe I finally have boobs!!
Kelly kept in regular contact with me along the way and made sure I was prepared for surgery and checked in with me afterwards to make sure everything was ok too.
I would thoroughly recommend Medbelle and Mr Ahmed, he is an amazing surgeon!"
Anonymous' breast reduction
"For as long as I can remember I have been unhappy with my boobs and for years I have wanted to have a reduction & an uplift. I had been to see and speak to several different clinics and their consultants but none did I feel so welcomed and supported as I did with Medbelle's team.
Right from my first phone call where I was introduced to Genevieve, she made me feel so at ease and comfortable. I could open up to her about my boobs and I didn't feel embarrassed at all.
After my first phone call, my next step was to book in with my consultant Mr Foiz Ahmed. With his years of experience and seeing his amazing feedback stories from his work, I thought he will be the perfect surgeon (..and trust me with my finish result he did not disappoint!!) He was so informative and friendly! He really understood what results I wanted and made me feel so at ease with the whole process. I come out of my first consultation feeling so excited and so confident that Mr Foiz Ahmed was going to literally change my life with this surgery!
I was now in the countdown to my operation date. Genevieve was constantly checking in throughout this time, making sure I was all ready for my surgery. She made me feel so at ease leading up to my operation!
I was very lucky to have my surgery go ahead due to the Corona outbreak and my surgery took place 5 days before lockdown in the UK. Due to this I was unable to have any visitors in the hospital.. so I was extra nervous on the day being alone but honestly, the nurses at One Hatfield Hospital (do I even say hospital.. as it was like a 5* hotel) & Mr Ahmed made me feel so reassured and at ease before my surgery. It made me feel like I wasn't on my own.
I honestly cannot thank Mr Foiz Ahmed enough, as my boobs look incredible now! They're so even and naturally done, I now have the perfect boobs that I have always wanted. The vision that I had in my head in my first consultation is now a reality. My boobs are everything I asked for and he truly is a miracle worker.
& Genevieve has been so amazing throughout the whole process! She has honestly been fantastic and I couldn't have asked for anyone to have been more supportive and kind to me.
The aftercare service has also been amazing! I cannot thank them all enough :)"
Mrs Blackmore's breast reduction
"Like all prospective patients, I had done my research online. Medbelle glowed like a beacon of hope ahead of me. Nervously, I made the initial contact online. Within minutes the comforting and friendly tones of Amy telephoned me. Calmly, professionally and encouragingly, we talked through my wishes and needs.
A combination of a family history of breast cancer and being too old for the nhs screening coupled with a long-held dislike of pendulous boobs had pushed me to address the issue.
It felt like I was talking to a long lost friend; I wasn’t mad, bad or shallow! Together we reviewed my options, I already felt confident with the decision to see my consultant.
A week later, I met Mr Ahmed; the knowledge and professionalism combined with quiet patient respect struck me immediately. An honest appraisal followed, with a way forward which suited.
Amy was with me (by phone) all the way, I didn’t feel alone in my decisions.
Booking into Hatfield One, was a breeze; clean, airy and private, I felt it was a 5* hotel not a hospital which would change my life forever.
Mr Ahmed’s ability to reconstruct is a gift, a talent that has changed my life for the better already. Waking up post-op, I immediately noticed the lack of weight around my boobs - so this is what normal boob size is like! And, the weight of cancer worry had lifted from my mind. The best BOGOF offer ever.
Excellent care pre, during and post-op. Each and every staff member oozed care. Both for me and my husband. Summing up, Amy was simply fantastic. Mr Ahmed has hands that gift rosy futures to patients like me. I do have one regret; that I didn’t call sooner."
Leonie's tummy tuck
"From the moment I spoke to Amy at Mebelle to book my consultant to have my tummy tuck and lipo done, I knew that I was in good hands. Amy was excellent she explained and answered my questions very clearly and would put me at ease. She was able to book the date that a required and also help to fit in the date on which I could do the operation. Then I met my surgeon Mr Foiz Ahmed, he made you feel at ease throughout he was able to explain to you what the procedure entails without log winding it. I've been to see 2 other consultants before him and I can honestly say that I wish I had spoken to doctor Ahmed first because he knew his stuff. The care and the time they gave at Medbelle is beyond words. Mr Foiz Ahmed work is remarkable and I would recommend him to anyone that would like to have this procedure done. Thank you guys so much for making my operation one of the best feels yet I can't wait to start showing it off."
