I had the apronectomy due to extreme weight loss which caused a large amount of excess skin that wouldn’t tone due the elasticity in the skin being lost. I was referred to Mr Woollard who performed the surgery and even one week after surgery I was happy with the results, the scar was clean and I already have a 100% improvement from what I had before even with the scar. The scar is healing well on week 3 and it is clear that the surgery was performed to the highest standard with great results 3 weeks in.

Mr Woollard made a challenging experience very manageable for me. He explained my surgical procedure clearly and took time to answer my questions . He immediately put my mind at ease because he acknowledged the anxiety I was having around my diagnosis and surgery. He knew that playing guitar was important to me, he ensured and encouraged me that this was something I could achieve again with his physio team post surgery, and he took a great interest in being updated on my progress. He came to see me prior to surgery and his focus was entirely on my well-being. I noted he had informed the whole team that I was anxious and likely needed extra support which was then given without my needing to ask. I feel confident that I received the best possible care under Mr Woollard. Ward staff, the Macmillan nurse and physio team all speak incredibly highly of him.

Mr Woollard 's expertise at fixing a very difficult and long standing problem has been amazing. His willingness to perform the operation when others said it could not be done, has given me my life back. He is a kind and caring doctor.

Following a diagnosis and initial treatment for Dedifferentiated Chondrosarcoma in my left arm, in January 2020 I underwent the amputation of my left arm and shoulder. Although my recovery went very well, I had an issue with my large breasts as I could no longer wear a bra and my left breast was considerably larger than the right due to lymphoedema. After having bespoke bras made and finding it increasingly difficult and uncomfortable to exercise and to dress as well as having problems fitting a prosthetic shoulder, my orthopaedic consultant referred me to Mr Woollard for a consultation. At my first consultation Mr Woollard instantly put me at ease and carefully explained what could be done. In subsequent consultations he explained the procedure and after care answering any questions before booking my bilateral breast reduction. Gillian Rolfe was superb, responding quickly and efficiently to any queries and made communications very easy. I felt confident and comfortable going into my surgery and was extremely well looked after. The result is amazing, I am thrilled with my small breasts. It has transformed my life in so many ways. I am looking forward to being symmetrical again and finally having a prosthetic shoulder fitted. Mr Woollard is a kind empathetic and gifted Consultant Plastic Surgeon who I would not hesitate to recommend.

I was under the care of Dr Alexandra Woollard. I am really pleased with the outcome of my procedure. I was well looked after during and after my surgery. I would highly recommend Mr Woollard..
