After a thorough consultation Mr Baker explained the procedure options to cure my trigger finger, and success rates, possible side effects, etc. Despite my not looking forward to either the local anaesthetic nor the procedure, he reassured me that it was nothing to worry about... and he was right.The operation was a success and I've no recurrance of the trigger finger.

 

Great Easy Experience

Mr Baker recently performed my Brachioplasty surgery. At my consultation he was very informative and explained the procedure and explained to me all the things I should expect and how the operation would be performed. 
I had my operation at the Welbeck clinic in London. The staff and nurses were excellent and made me feel at ease. Mr Baker spoke to me before the surgery to check all was ok and again after. I felt very relaxed.
After the operation I felt fine and had no pain in the next few days a little discomfort but no pain I was extremely pleased on how I felt.
Mr Baker saw me a few days after the operation and a week after to check and change the dressings.
My bandages stayed on for about 6 weeks. When the bandages were removed I was very pleased on how slim my arms looked there was some scarring which I expected but is under my arm and not noticeable 
Now after six months the scarring is getting less and I was informed at my consultation this could take up to two years but I am very happy at present with the results I and take a great delight in being able to wear sleeveless tops after many years off wearing long sleeves. 
So far I am amazed at the results and how much self-confidence the surgery has given to me.
Mr Baker has done an amazing job and I would recommend him for any surgical procedure.

Richard Baker Saved my Thumb

  • 8 Dec 2019

A brilliant Plastic surgeon who saved my thumb. After ripping my thumb off and snapping my ligament off my bone, Richard performed surgery and reattached my ligament to my bone using a Mitex anchor. For two weeks I was in a cast, then another two weeks in another cast, then another week in a cast and then I was transferred to hand therapy and given gentle hand and thumb exercises. Now, nearly two months later, I have been discharged! My scar is very neat and heals further every day and I am gaining confidence by lifting and pinching my thumb. I was worried I would never been able to use my thumb again so I am very lucky that I met Richard Baker and his great team - I will always be very thankful #savemythumb #iamverylucky

An Amazing Breast Augmentation, 300cc, Dual Plane, 32A to 32DD Happy

  • 10 Nov 2019

I had a breast Augmentation last year in December 2018 at The London Welbeck Hospital. I had 300cc, smooth, round, high profile, silicone, mentor memory gel implants, dual plane, inserted through the breast inframammary crease. I had a great experience and my surgeon Doctor Richard Baker was amazing, I was nervous at the beginning before I met him, but he put my mind at ease and answered all my questions and I trusted him, he was very professional, knowledgeable, honest and all the photos of his previous cases were beautiful and natural. If you want a professional surgeon who will give you honest answers and beautiful, natural looking results, then Doctor Richard Baker is the one. I was more nervous taking my top off at the consultation than I was before going into theatre for surgery as by this point I knew I was in good hands and had nothing to worry about. The hospital was spotless, I had my own bathroom, shower, toilet and nurse attending me (who was so lovely to me and really looked after me, before and after surgery) Obviously I did have some discomfort after surgery, I told them and I was given pain relief, the soreness was bearable and after taking medication I just wanted to sleep, I have had much worse period pains. Almost a year on and I am so pleased with the results, I have gone from wearing a 32A bra to being fitted properly and now I wear a 32DD and was told my actual size is 30E but I have never wore a size 30 bra it feels very tight around my torso so I’m wearing 32DD. They are very natural, they sound huge but honestly they do not look stuck on, they look so natural, it is not the Katie Price/Jordan look. My sisters have said they look real and are so jealous! (They want to have theirs done) Lol, I now look like I was blessed and born with big boobs. But really it’s all down to my surgeons skills, thank you doctor Richard Baker! This is a professional surgeon who in my opinion has a conscience. I always follow my gut instinct and I felt straight away that I could trust Richard. He is professional and will give you honest answers. He is not inappropriate or over the top friendly, as I have heard some other surgeons can be. I was never made to feel stupid or like an object or like I was being judged for choosing breast implants. All I can say is the results are gorgeous, natural, I am so happy with them and Richard is Professional, an expert and will give you natural, beautiful results. I can not recommend him enough. I am beaming with confidence :) :) :)

  • 7 Oct 2019

From the moment I was introduce to Mr Baker to today which is just over 2 weeks post opp, I have had fantastic support and guidance form Mr Baker. I was able to discuss any issues or concerns that I had at any time. 
Mr Baker gave very full and open answers to all my questions and was able to tell me all the possible outcomes both positive and negative.
I have just returned from having all my dressings removed and the results are amazing even though I am still a little swollen, 
I would definitely be recommending Mr Baker to friends that have asked me who also require procedures to be carried out.

Life Changing Surgery

  • 16 Jul 2019

My experience was extremely good, Dr Baker helped me to decide which procedures were best for me. I have dieted many times but never manage to get rid of the fat on my tummy and always felt like I looked a few months pregnant ! 

Dr Baker recommended that I have a tummy tuck and liposuction in three places (both flanks and upper abdomen). The operation went very well, unfortunately I did get an infection a few weeks later but Dr Baker gave me excellent after care and soon cleared it up. 
I cannot explain easily how fantastic this procedure has made me feel, I wish I had done it sooner ! 
I highly recommend Dr Baker he is a kind and trustworthy surgeon - thank you once again.

I have recently undergone abdominalplasty and liposuction following 4 stone weight loss.  Mr Baker explained everything in great detail and was very supportive of my decision.  He gave me realistic expectations and quite frankly they have exceeded what I imagined.  He was always available for advice or if I had concerns and was happy to see me if required post op.  Absolutely amazing surgeon and a genuinely lovely man.  Thank you Mr Baker, you have changed my life for good!

Following a fall in the summer I was left with a real problem with my left wrist. I was in constant pain, my wrist clicked when I used it and on occasions it gave way. As I am a rowing coach it meant I struggled to drive a launch or my car and I ended up wearing a wrist support all the time. When I first consulted Mr Baker he suggested I tried steroid injections but after the first one I felt very little benefit so he said that I need to have either a carpectomy or a wrist fusion.  I was very lucky that as my cartilage was intact Mr Baker was able to perform a carpectomy which has left me with more movement than if I had required a fusion.  From the time I first met with Mr Baker until the follow up, I felt extremely well looked after. Mr Baker listened to me and seemed to understand my problem. He explained exactly what the surgery would involve, gave me a timeline of how my rehabilitation would progress and he made the effort to come up to see both me and my husband after the surgery and could even show us photos of the operation.  My progress following the surgery has been fantastic. I have no pain, swelling or numbness and although I have a small limitation to my movement, it really makes very little difference to anything I need to do.  I would highly recommend Mr Baker.

Mr Baker was absolutely amazing. I saw him as I wanted very old implants removed. He went through the process with me, explaining the scarring, how long the procedure would last and what to expect afterwards. He and his team were absolutely fantastic on the day of the procedure, going through each step with me and making me feel at ease. I not only had the implants removed but also had reconstructive surgery otherwise I would have just had hanging bags at the end. My breasts are perfect and I am thrilled. The scarring is very small as the incisions were thin and extremely neat and they have faded over the last few weeks already. The after care service was five star, with regular check ups with Mr Baker and the breast nurse, Carmell. I would never hesitate to use Mr Baker again, in fact, I wouldn't want anyone else.

I ripped my thumb off and snapped the ligament off the bone in my right hand (adductor tendon incised). I was very frightened but had to trust someone - I was very lucky to be put under Richard Baker's care. He booked me into theatre - Even though the ward was full, he found me a bed.   Before the operation, Richard and his assistants Rachel and Haroon, were great in explaining the surgery procedure and how, until they had opened up my thumb, the full extent of my injury would not be known. Also the risks were explained to me, though, as above, I had to trust someone.   During the operation Richard found my ligament and reattached it to my bone using a Mitex anchor. He put my hand into a cast and I kept it raised - It was very painful initially and I was worried the anchor would come out. However that was more in my mind than reality, as nearly two months later, I've built confidence and been discharged!  After two weeks I had my cast replaced (I chose a pink one with glitter!), then after another two weeks I had another cast for a week. Then I was transferred to hand therapy and was given another, smaller cast, so I could start using my fingers and doing gentle thumb exercises.   Two months later my scar is very neat and becomes less conspicuous each day. My thumb is getting stronger and I'm doing lifting, stretching and pinching exercises.   I am incredibly grateful and thankful to Richard Baker, his wonderful Plastics team at Wexham Park Hospital, his operation assistants including Haroon, Liz who changed my dressing, Hayley who arranged my appointments, cast ladies who were very patient, and Stephanie and Lauren in hand therapy. Not forgetting the nurse who kindly did my hair in a plait for theatre as I was distressed and couldn't use my thumb.  I would highly recommend Richard Baker. I was worried I'd never be able to use my thumb again but Richard Baker has given me the confidence and courage to realise that I will be able to #savemythumb #iamverylucky

I recently had a cmc joint replacement with myo-prothesis. The operation was done by Mr. Baker. I have had problems with both my hands for more than a decade. The care both before and after the surgery was excellent. I am delighted with the results. I have an improved range of motion in the thumb and the wrist. The scarring is minimal and very tidy. I believe this has been the best care and most attentive follow up that I have received. I am very grateful to Mr. Baker for improving my hand.
