Mr David Lam
1st March 2022
For context, I am 22 years old, 59kg and 5ft 10". My cup size was a 32A, and has been increased to a 32D.
Breast surgery is something I had wanted for a number of years, it is also something I had put a lot of research into. I had scoured the internet for almost a year, reading reviews, looking at endless 'before/after' photos, and different results. I saw numerous pages on social media, advertising the surgery with fake looking, airbrushed models. While surgery is an individual choice, I knew that I wanted a natural looking result. After seeing the results posted online by Mr Lam, with realistic images and of a similar body type to my own, I immediately knew I wanted to book for a consultation.
During the consultation, Mr Lam asked, and listened, to what it was I would like to achieve from the surgery; he showed me similar 'before' photos, followed by the 'after' results; I tried multiple implant shapes and sizes inside a sports bra, and he explained thoroughly the different results that would be achieved with each e.g., the difference between the round and tear drop style. He offered a range of sizes suitable for my body type, that would create the desired result. The extent of his knowledge was clear as he made sure I was aware of any potential risks that may occur as a result of the surgery, to ensure I made an informed decision. At no point did I feel pressured or rushed into making the decision. During the consultation I made the decision to provisionally book a date for the surgery. I was unsure initially of the implant size I would like to choose, and Mr Lam suggested to use the 'rice method' at home to trial the different sizes available to me. Upon leaving, I was reassured that I could book a further consultation prior to the surgery should I wish to discuss this further with Mr Lam.
In the end, I did not book a further consultation, thus, surgery day was the next time I saw Mr Lam. This was my first operation, and I was incredibly nervous. However, Mr Lam took the time to discuss my final decision regarding implant size, he reassured me, and settled my nerves. Mr Lam was present as I came around from surgery, and again before I left the hospital. He provided me with detailed information on the recovery and aftercare, and a date for my review.
I found the recovery process a lot more comfortable than I had anticipated; I think this reflects Mr Lam's performance in surgery. While it was uncomfortable, it was not unbearable, and I had completely stopped taking any pain medication on day 3 post op. I had arranged for 10 days annual leave at work, of which I am glad, as I feel that gave my body sufficient time to recover. 14 days post surgery I was able to drive, and pick up light shopping bags. 6 weeks post surgery, I returned to the gym for light exercise.
My review with Mr Lam followed shortly after. He was pleased with the overall results, shape, and size of my breasts, and the healing of my scars. He took the time to listen and ask questions concerning my thoughts and feelings following the procedure; was I happy with the result? Were there any changes to things such as my nipple sensation? How did I find the recovery process? And so on. It was clear from start to end that patient experience and satisfaction was a significantly important factor.
Upon writing this review, I am 12 weeks post op. My scars are virtually non-existent, I have resumed normal activity at the gym, and my breasts continue to look and feel better each week. I have never felt more confident in my body than what I do now. Overall, I feel more proportionate and feminine. The whole experience was a pleasure, and I cannot thank Mr Lam enough for changing my life. For anyone looking into getting breast augmentation, I could not recommend Mr Lam enough.
