Miss Lyndsey Highton
30th June 2021
After being recalled back from a routine annual mammogram and then having various biopsies, this resulted in an area of DCIS - oestrogen and progesterone positive fed breast cancer diagnosed in January 2021. I was fortunate to be under Miss Highton on the NHS and easily transferred my care privately with her. I felt reassured and completely comfortable with Lyndsey at all times.
My surgery took place at the end of April 2021. The mastectomies and implant based reconstruction was all undertake in one operation. The procedure was fully explained to me by Lyndsey. I felt confident and prepared going to theatre. The operation went well with just one night stay in hospital. I wore a compression bra for approx 6 weeks after and easily managed the pain with the painkillers prescribed. I had follow up checks and there was always a breast nurse available by phone. I have had no issues from the surgery and the result is absolutely amazing, I have the tiniest of scars with amazing natural look and symmetry. Lindsay kept me up to date with my histology results, arranged my future reviews plus liaised with my GP. I feel extremely confident in Lyndsey and my care will continue with her. The breast care nurses at the hospital are brilliant too, very professional, thorough and friendly. At every visit I felt at ease with everyone involved in my care. I can’t rate Lyndsey highly enough, she is an extremely talented breast and plastic surgeon who will listen, puts you at ease, whilst giving you the most outstanding results.
