I had my tummy tuck with Lisa 3 months ago, and am over the moon with my results. I'm 37 and have 2 boys (4 and 7 ). My tummy muscles separated after my first pregnancy, leaving me with two bulges on my tummy no matter how much i exercised. I was still only size 8-10; but seeing my tummy was upsetting me every single day. Finally, when our youngest was 4, and my husband and I decided that our family was complete, I decided to do something about it. I found Lisa thanks to all the wonderful reviews on this and other websites. She was not the nearest surgeon to me (she is in Bristol and I am in Hertfordshire, so it's 2.5hrs by car or train each way!). But because most consultations were online, I found this very manageable; and only had to travel to Bristol 3 times (one for pre-op consultation; one for surgery and one for 2 weeks post-op check-up). Lisa was on hand via Whatsapp all times day and night; so I did not at all feel unsafe not living in Bristol. We also had regular Zoom follow-ups, in which I could raise any concerns (if I had any). I was terribly anxious before the op, but it all went very well; and I could feel my corset-like repaired abs on the evening of the surgery. My recovery went smoothly; I was working from home 2 weeks after surgery; and now 3 months on I am back to doing karate, yoga as well HIIT and weights. Aesthetically, my tummy looks even better than I expected. Bulges on the stomach and wrinkly skin have gone. I now have a definitive hourglass shape, something that I didn't expect. My tummy is super flat - it no longer sags to the floor when I do plank and no longer hangs over the top of my trousers, skirts, etc. This has given me enormous confidence - I can wear cropped tops (which I didn't do even when I was a teenager!); I no longer turn off the light when I am intimate with my husband; I am also more motivated to eat well and exercise as it makes tummy result even better. To summarise I am super pleased with my results. Lisa is a fantastic surgeon - I followed her instructions to the letter, and she created a result that far exceeded my expectations. She is also wonderful and caring person; once you meet her you make a friend for life.

Vertical Breast Reduction Oct 2020 (36GG to 34DD) Age 56 - The only regret I have is that I didn't find Lisa and do this decades ago! A bit about me: From my teenage years my breasts had been the bane of my life. They were large and pendulous. No matter how much weight I lost or how much exercise I tried to do nothing changed. My shoulders had dents where my bra straps were holding the weight of my breasts. My breasts hurt when I exercised and even a brisk walk could cause discomfort. My posture was not great either. I found shopping for clothes a nightmare as my frame was often a size 12/14 but because of the size of my breasts I would need to buy a 16/18 in a top or a dress which made me look much larger than I was. Basically, I felt that all people saw was my breasts. For many years I wanted to have a breast reduction procedure, but the timing was never right and/or I did not have the finance readily available. I am an anxious person, so it needed to be right for me to go ahead. I made myself a promise that I would do the necessary research and go ahead with this as soon as I retired. Surgery: I decided to retire early and late 2019 I fixed the date for April 2020. As soon as that decision was made, I started my research. Once I came across Lisa’s profile and read all the information and reviews pertaining to her, I knew that I wanted Lisa to carry out my operation using the vertical scar technique. Pre surgery I lost approximately 1½ stone - none of it from my breasts! Little did I know that I had decided to undergo this procedure in the middle of a global pandemic! However, Lisa and her manager, Liana are such kind and caring ladies who made me feel supported throughout. I met Lisa via two Zoom consultations and once in person before my surgery. She was professional and approachable giving me much needed confidence. My regular follow-ups have been carried out over Zoom due to the pandemic which is very convenient for me as Bristol is over an hour from where I live. Lisa listened, understood my anxieties and discussed my expectations with me. She has an eye for proportions which gives her the ability to bring about amazing results that I could never have imagined. Lisa is only ever a message or call away and I know she will always be there if I have any questions or issues. A bit about me now: I look in the mirror and can see my torso and rib cage – AMAZING!!! I am 3 months post op and I feel fabulous. No pain when I exercise, my weight loss that no one seemed to see before the operation is now noticed by everyone I meet. I stand taller and have no discomfort from my bra. Following surgery I’ve lost almost ½ stone and I’m an off the peg size 12. My confidence has been boosted ten-fold and exercising is painless. This surgery was 100% worth the expense and the small amount of discomfort that came with it. Lisa and her team at the Nuffield are second to none and I would thoroughly recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking to have this surgery.

I had my breast reduction age 21 and haven’t looked back since! I went from a 34G to a 34D and having suffered from back and shoulder pain, difficulty exercising and body insecurities. My posture improved almost immediately, and once I recovered I found I could run again with no pain and shopping for new clothes is so much more enjoyable! I’ve always been quite active through rowing, but I’m now the fittest I’ve ever been and even signed up for a half marathon, which never would have been possible before! Lisa was absolutely incredible throughout the experience from the first consultation to the regular follow-up appointments. She does everything possible to get the best result for you, I felt very comfortable and trusted her completely!

15/01/21 A year ago, I had a vertical breast reduction in Bristol, England. The first time I considered having a breast reduction I was in my early twenties. I enjoyed an active life dancing, swimming and playing hockey, but my large breasts always got in the way. Ballet was especially difficult as the leotards and stage costumes were usually strappy, made for small breasted figures. People, especially men, commented regularly on the size of my breast too, which made me self-conscious. Being short at 160 cm, the size of my bust (36 E) was enhanced. I married a wonderful man who totally loved me as I was. I decided against having a breast reduction as I felt it was important for me to breast feed my children; in the 1990s there was a strong probability of not being able to do this following a reduction. I had three lovely sons; life got busy and I did not think too much about a breast reduction. I continued an active lifestyle and instructed yoga alongside coaching age group swimmers. In my late thirties I started to gain weight, the majority of which seemed to accumulate around my breasts! I was still active, but the heftiness of my breasts meant that I required underwire bras with thick straps that were especially altered to fit my torso. In addition, I would wear quite tight-fitting tank tops when doing high impact activates just to keep my breasts somewhat still and supported. I spoke about having a breast reduction quite frequently with my husband but thinking about the possible complications of surgery whilst having a young family put me off. One day, my husband said that he had found a surgeon online. The surgeons name was Lisa Sacks, and she was based in Bristol, UK. I read online about the procedures she performed, and I watched the vertical breast reduction with much interest. At the age of 50, I decided to bite the bullet and do something that I had dreamed about for so long. My breast size was 40F, possibly bigger but I had given up measuring. I spoke to three friends who had had breast reductions; they said it was the best thing they had ever done. All three had experienced some problems with the healing under their breasts where horizontal incisions had been made. The procedure Dr Sacks performs does not require a horizontal cut under the breast; I liked the sound of that! I travelled from Tanzania in Africa to Bristol to have the operation done. I felt very much at ease after my initial appointments and became increasingly excited as the operation day approached. I was well prepared for the operation, with information on what to expect, what to pack for hospital, what to do afterwards and so on. Certainly, I felt that I was in good hands. I had the operation and stayed overnight in hospital. The following day I was groggy, though not in a lot of pain. I went to the home of a family member for two weeks to recover and followed the instructions from the hospital closely. I did not experience a great deal of pain, just a little discomfort. Six weeks after the operation, I travelled back home to Tanzania. The two observations that had the greatest initial impact for me were that 1. I could see my ribcage when looking at myself in the mirror! 2. My shoulders felt lighter and my upper back felt easier. It took a good six months for my breasts to heal. After six months, I started to swim, to walk and to build my yoga practice. After eight months, I decided to embark on a weight loss program. The first time I started running I felt elated! I was wearing a simple sports bra, yet I did not feel the incredible bounce and bust weight that I had always experienced in the past. I felt more natural. When practicing yoga, I could twist easily, and I could go upside down without feeling suffocated by my breasts. I could wear strappy tops too! The shirts I wear now no longer gape at the breast as buttons strain to hold me in, and it looks like I have some shape; before my shirts and dresses ballooned from the breast down in a telly tubby fashion. Now, I can also wear swimsuits with confidence; in the past my breasts were such a dominating feature: I was always wrapping myself in a towel or baggy shirt to hide them. My bra size is now 38D. I still have a generous bust, but it is a huge improvement on where I was before. The reduction was certainly worth the expense and the time required to heal. If anything, knowing the outcome now I would have done it much earlier. I believe it would have given me greater confidence in all spheres of life. Nevertheless, I am delighted with where I am. I have signed up for an online teacher training course this year. I am not concerned about what bra or shirt I will wear; this used to be high on my agenda of things to worry about when taking courses in the past. I am thankful. I have lost 6 kg and have 4 kg more to lose; I feel the weight loss will be worthwhile.

Having breast augmentation with Lisa has honestly been the best thing I have ever done. At 21 years of age I decided to go for it. I had spent years of feeling embarrassed and shame for how I looked and couldn’t understand why I looked the way I did. I felt so insecure that I used to hide away under my clothes and padded bras. I can’t even begin to tell you how much my life has changed since having Breast Argumentation - I am 100x more happier in my own skin and I feel the most confident I have ever felt. It has made such a difference to my posture and appearance, I finally look like a women and no longer have to depend on severely padded bras! I feel ‘normal’ now. I have gone from a triple A cup to a 32c, the implants I have are Mentor Micro-textured Cohesive Silicone Gel. The results blew all my expectations and I was extremely happy with how they looked and how well and quick they healed with all the expert advice from Lisa. The level of care from Lisa and her team before and after surgery was second to none. I had many regulars follow ups from Lisa after surgery, checking how I was doing and how I was healing. Lisa is a very caring and thoughtful woman, she is everything you would want in a surgeon - I will forever recommend her, I felt totally safe in her hands and completely at ease. Hands down the best thing I have ever done for myself.
