Written by a patient at BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital

Last year, Mr Blackburn successfully removed the breast implants that I'd had 7 years ago when I was living abroad. I'd originally wanted an uplift, but was told by two surgeons that the best solution for breasts that had lost shape and fullness would be a simple enlargement. I always felt the implants were too large for my fairly slim frame: my breasts increased from a 32C to a 32E, with high-profile implants, even though I'd been told 32D would be the maximum size to expect. Last year, I'd really had enough of them, and was extremely fortunate to find Mr Blackburn. In addition to removing the implants, he also lifted the breasts to re-instate some of their original perkiness. What a fantastic result! They look better and fuller than they did 10 years ago, and the scars have faded and flattened to almost nothing, barely noticeable unless I lift my arms. Mr Blackburn has an absolutely lovely manner. He explained the procedure very clearly, and I always felt comfortable during the pre- and post-op examinations. I just wish I'd been able to go to him for an uplift 7 years ago, before the implants!
