Nicola operated on my son's forehead this summer. He is diagnosed with autism and anxiety which I mentioned at our initial consultation with her. On the day of the operation she had allowed extra time for his appointment, made him relaxed and constantly talked him through what she was doing whilst checking he was ok at each stage. I am so grateful that he was treated by such a caring and understanding lady and know that he will be less anxious when seen again in a few weeks for the final stage of surgery with Nicola.
As soon as I met Nicola I knew she was the surgeon for me. She was informative, she really took the time to listen to what I wanted and why and actually cared. My partner and I were completely at ease with her and loved all of her recommendations about my implant size, making me trust her more as she knew how big I could go already. On the day of the surgery, Nicola came to visit me and really talk through the procedure again. Before I went into the operating theatre Nicola was there again, just to see me before I went in with her. Once I was out, she was there again to speak through what happened and again at 8am the next morning. The care Nicola gave me was amazing and just what I needed. She was always on her email for the following 6 weeks even if I panic messaged her at 10.30pm. My boobs are AMAZING, no stretch marks no pain and lovely stitches. I will never be able to thank Nicola enough for what she has done and thank her for taking care of me. All in all I had an amazing experience, so thank you
