Dr Ioannis Ntanos
22nd August 2023
I had top surgery with Mr Ntanos in Jan 2023 as a private patient. Throughout the entire process, I was very impressed by his attentiveness and caring attitude. I always felt respected by him, and appreciated his emphasis upon my understanding and input at every stage — a perfect expression of the principle of informed consent.
On the day of my surgery, Mr Ntanos was a very calming presence, and involved me as much as possible in decision making about the specific aesthetic outcomes I was seeking. After the surgery, Mr Ntanos came to check on me to see how I was and to let me know how it went, including telling me that he had to connect my scars during the procedure. He'd informed me about the possibility of this beforehand, so it didn't come as a shock or disappointment, and everything else went very well.
I returned to Manchester 2 weeks later to have my dressings removed, and Mr Ntanos made the experience quick and painless. I particularly appreciated him immediately reassuring me that my nipple grafts were healthy, which I was grateful for after 2 weeks of suspense! My scar and nipple placement was exactly what I was hoping for, and I was well informed by Mr Ntanos about how to protect and care for my incisions at home.
Following my discharge from the hospital, I was able to send him any worries or queries I had via WhatsApp, and gain reassurance/advice regarding my healing. He has responded to all of my questions very promptly, and I have always felt well supported throughout the healing process, which has gone smoothly overall.
It is now 7 months on from my surgery, and my results look absolutely fantastic. I am extremely happy with my new chest, and I cannot recommend Mr Ntanos highly enough.
