Anonymous London
Reviewed 12 May 2016 "Very positive"
"I had structural fat grafting to correct dark circles and unevenness on my cheekbones due to recent eyebag removal. I was very pleased with Dr Verpaele at CentrumCoupure clinic. I did some research and discovered he was one of the best surgeons for this treatment. He listened to my concerns and responded to my questions. I am now post 2 weeks and the swelling has gone down. I am happy with the results

Very positive. Lovely clinic and hospital premises and Dr Verpaele took good care of me from consultation to treatment. I even received a call post treatment to check on my health. Dr Verpaele is very good a true professional and I don't believe he gets the credit he deserves."

"Breast lift no implants

I had my first appoint with Dr Verpaele in August 2014 - a friend recommended him to me. We discussed the detail of a breast lift with no implants. I had the surgery on 26th November and now, 2 weeks post op, I am thrilled with the results. It is a long healing process - I am aware of this - but I could never be more pleased. The surgery took place at E:MC² in Gent. Extremely professional staff in the clinic. I was very nervous and shaky, I have to admit and everybody tried their best to make me feel at ease as much as possible. After I woke up I had around me one very friendly nurse taking care the first hours post op go well. I went home that evening. the same nurse called me the very next day to check up on me. The staff working there is just amazing. My two post op visits went well, I am healing good. There might be cheaper doctors there but for me it is the best money I have ever spent and I love the results. No wonder everybody recommends him. I fully recommend Dr Verpaele and the clinic."

Reviewed 30 June 2014 "Very good quality work"
"Facelift, upper eyelift, fat transfer

I contacted two clinics, only one replied - with Dr Verpaele himself replying within a day or so. I quickly booked his one spare window & met with him in Ghent, where we discussed an upper eyelift & fat transfer/fillers (I wanted a 'non surgical' facelift & fillers in my upper & lower eyelids). But then I realised that as he invented the MACS lift (with his partner Dr Tonnard) I was in a good place to just get it all done properly - why have 2 healing times when you can have one? I was planning on doing a face lift next year anyway. He was affordable, not as inexpensive as some in Belgium but he's a top flight, internationally reknowned surgeon & is extremely experienced in fat grating (a must with any procedure, its the volume that matters) & eyes, & at no point did he push or sell anything. A great deal less than London for the very best, with top end facilities & fantastic staff that speak perfect English. The lift itself was done under a sedative not a general, not for everyone & not pleasant, but bearable. My eyes (which I was worried about) were the easy part, but as a MACS lift really gets to under your chin & neck there's a lot of stretching & tightness, followed by a lot of swelling & bruising. I have heard of people going back to the UK the next day on the Eurostar & would absolutely not recommend this. You will not be able to chew food for at least a week either, & will not be able to put a scarf & sunglasses on & go out sightseeing unless you don't mind being stared at. I have yet to see my final result, but so far I am thrilled. The stitches in my upper eyes are so fine they are barely visible, the stitching around my ears is minimal too. This is very good quality work indeed. Highly recommend Dr Vepaele & his clinic."
