"my most heartfelt appreciation for your medical service to me."
Clinic's favourite review

Treatment Received: Medical Aesthetics Specialist Consultation
Dear Dr. Bong

I would like to take this opportunity to express to you my most heartfelt appreciation for your medical service to me.

Initially I was quite nervous about having the treatment for my face for the first time in my life. However, after consulting with you I felt calm and confident that all would be okay. Your willingness to discuss/explain everything gave me a sense of assurance and enabled me to continue with the treatment plan.

Your skill, knowledge and positive outlook played a major role in gaining the excellent final results .

Saying “Thank You” seems so insufficient but I can find no words that truly express my feelings appropriately, so I will stick with those two simple words with the hope that you know the depth of emotion and gratitude they contain.

"The treatment was quick and it was almost pain-free, nothing I could not handle"
5 50Reviewed 04 Jun 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Non-Surgical Nose Job
My daughter's wedding is coming up in July and I did not feel photo-ready for any side view pictures taken of my weird looking nose, which literally made me look grumpy & angry both at the same time. My nose did not suit me at all!

So I decided to search for different ways to change a nose shape without surgery and came across something that really caught my attention. During my search, I found Dr. Kieran Bong at Essence Medical Clinic.

I was immediately drawn to his website and read about all the different treatments they offered.

Much to my delight, a non-surgical nose job is one of them too.
I definitely liked the idea of not having surgery, no downtime & immediate results.

I was also really impressed by all the brilliant 5-star reviews, as well as Dr. Bong's level of professionalism in this industry.
He clearly knows exactly what he is doing in his work & does it all very amazingly.

So followed this world-renowned, highly admired and respected Dr. Kieran Bong on Facebook for a while & I looked at all the pictures & positive feedback from many clients.
I was really impressed with him & all his work.

Eventually, I contacted him for more info on the non-surgical nose job procedure and he replied to my message almost immediately to answer all my questions.

We made an appointment for me to go see him for a consultation. He is such a lovely and kind-hearted man, along with his wonderful reputation!

He showed me the little needles he uses & the filler he injects into the nose to mould the new shape & explained exactly what he would do & what the procedure entails.
So of course, I had absolutely no doubt that my nose would be in good capable hands!

Dr. Bong's level of professionalism, knowledge and skills just blew me away.

If I was a more expressive person - I would probably have literally been jumping up and down with excitement all over his office!

The treatment was quick (about 15 to 20 minutes in total) and it was almost pain-free, nothing I could not handle. The tip of my nose is usually quite sensitive anyway & that is the only part I really felt a minimal amount of pain as he inserted the needle.

He then worked his magic to re-shape my nose.
Dr. Bong was very gentle and talked me through what he was doing as he went along.

My nose took immediate new shape & looks so much better than before.
The results are very subtle, I still look the same, but only a lot better and I definitely feel more comfortable with my nose - as well as profile view photo ready! I really do look a lot happier with that grumpy snout out the way!

Dr. Bong then fitted me into his busy schedule for a review day 2 weeks later (just before I go on holiday), to make sure everything is still good.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Bong for any cosmetic facial treatments. Thank you so much, Dr. Bong, for being so awesome.

"You exceed yourself every time"
5 50Reviewed 15 May 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Treatment for Wrinkles
Treatment for wrinkles and consultation for my next procedure.

That's now been 4 years I have used essence and Dr. Kieren Bong. The fact that he understands the underlying issue of 'why' I get facial treatments and doesnt just see it as a procedure I think is just unique in itself. Always his aim is my happiness and not Monterey gain. Not many in the market I feel have this quality but would actually ironically charge more for procedures.

Many of my friends use different cosmetic clinics. From this I see the true comparison and only more concretes my confidence and loyalty in Dr. Kieren Bong.

I am sure I am speaking for all your loyal patients here. When I thank you for continued professional expertise and support. You exceed yourself every time.

"I felt completely comfortable during the entire procedure"
5 50Reviewed 11 Apr 2018 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Lip Augmentation, Cheek Augmentation
I had filler treatment for cheeks and upper lip from Dr Bong on a couple of weeks ago. I’m extremely pleased with the results, beautiful and natural. Dr Bong explained everything in detail and I completely trusted him. I felt completely comfortable during the entire procedure. I barely felt a thing and love the result. I paid £700 for the cheek treatment and felt it was very good value for money. I would recommend this clinic to anyone thinking of cosmetic treatments.

I chose the clinic because my sister recommended Dr Bong to me, she had similar treatment. Everyone at the clinic is friendly, professional and you know you're in safe hands as soon as you meet Dr Bong. He doesn’t try to sell you anything. Just gives an honest consultation, explains everything fully, explains the price and lets you decide, no pressure. I will definitely be going back.

"I wouldn't go anywhere else now"
5 50Reviewed 03 Apr 2018 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Medical Aesthetics Specialist Consultation
I have just returned from my 2nd visit to Dr Bong. Dr Bong is a true professional and definitely top class in his profession. I made the mistake of going to a different clinic a couple of years ago. I have to say that Dr Bong's procedure is far superior, less painful and less swelling with greater results. It's worth every penny. I have had multiple procedures with Dr Bong and I wouldn't go anywhere else now.

The location is easy to find and the parking is free.

"My experience at the clinic was very easy and relaxed"
5 50Reviewed 31 Mar 2018 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Dermal Fillers
I had a dermal filler treatment with Dr Keiran Bong for cheeks and jowls. He took a great deal of time to put me at ease and explained the full procedure, so I knew exactly what to expect. The treatment itself was so easy and pain-free. I am absolutely delighted with the results, my cheeks look perfectly shaped, taking years off me. The drooping around my jowls has almost gone and the mouth corners lifted.
There was no bruising, swelling and no downtime. The results are completely natural. I would definitely recommend Dr Bong to anyone looking for cosmetic treatments. Its also very good value for money, considering how long the results will last (around 18 months or more).

The clinic and Dr Bong were recommended to me by a friend, who has been treated a few weeks before. My sister thought the results were fantastic and went herself to Dr Bong for a treatment too. The clinic is lovely (easy to find, just off the motorway, and free parking just outside for customers).
The reception staff was very helpful. Dr Bong is so friendly, helpful, completely professional, very experienced and knowledgeable. Overall my experience at the clinic was very easy and relaxed, which was such a relief as I was very nervous. I would definitely go back for further treatment.

"Everything else about the clinic was fine"
3 50Reviewed 09 Mar 2018 Verified user.
Treatment Received: Treatment for Wrinkles, Non-Surgical Facelift
I was searching for clinics that offered wrinkle treatments and just picked this one. There was no real reason behind it. When I chose the clinic I didn’t know what the price would be. The treatment was not exactly excellent and it only made a tiny difference to my face. I also thought it was quite pricey. The doctor gave me two injections for a facelift. The one was 700 pounds and the other was 1400. I had to pay a separate 300 pounds for my chin. I expected a lot more from the treatment for these prices.

The procedure may not have worked for me, but everything else about the clinic was fine. The seating arrangement in the waiting area, the receptionist, etc. were all alright. I had the chance to speak to the doctor and he was good, too. They really did try their best, but the treatment just didn’t work. I’m considering trying another clinic, but if I can’t find a better option, I might just go to them again.

"There is no doubt in my mind, you will not be disappointed"
5 50Reviewed 24 Sep 2017 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Treatment for Wrinkles, Lip Augmentation
Dr. Kieron Bong is truly a professional caring consultant who is without doubt excellent at what he does. I had treatment for wrinkles and Lip enhancement. He explained everything before hand in detail and at no point are you ever put under pressure to have more than you may want.

The clinic is spotlessly clean. I was not one to ever consider treatment and was very worried as was my husband, I can hand on heart say I will be back. For those of you out there who have never had treatment before this is the man to go to.

I did a lot of research beforehand hence I arrived on his doorstep. There is no doubt in my mind, you will not be disappointed.
