Breast reduction. Discharged at 6 week review with infection and fat necrosis diagnosed when I asked for a new consultant to take over my care. I knew and understood complications before surgery. His attitude from start to finish was shocking. Completely dismissive. I also have a very small square left breast. Avoid like the plague. I should have went with my gut instinct. The only reason I went ahead with him was because a friend knew a theatre nurse who said he was a good surgeon. Not in breast surgery as far as I am concerned. In a few months my new consultant will assess me again and repair the mess. Surgery was at Glasgow royal and I must add the wound nurses at the plastic surgery unit were first class and did not dismiss me even when they asked Mr taggart refused to come see me as they were not happy to send me home 15 minutes after he discharged me. Horrible man
17 years ago I had a Breast Augmentation done at the age of 23. There was virtually nothing available on the internet then, and I was naive and embarrassed. I went to Transform in Glasgow and had a consultation, revealing my 34A breasts and that I wanted VERY small boobs. Just enough to get me by. I had virtually no information offered to me, just an older matronly counsellor lady called Anne Connell with lots of empty reassurances. I came out of the procedure with massive breasts, about a C-cup, too big for my skinny frame and worse still, I had lost a lot of sensitivity in my breasts. I replaced one shame with another, but just got on with my life, never quite happy with them. I had 290cc hydrogel implants put in, no notes of anything else. 10 days ago I had a breast augmentation revision done in London. Again, I wanted smaller breasts than before, and requested my old clinic notes from Transform Glasgow. I received these and discussed them with my surgeon. He agreed that we could go to 245/265cc, although I would have preferred smaller. We didn't know if I was originally implanted subglandular or submuscular. Post operation (245cc), and the surgeon tells me the implants were actually 270cc, not 290cc as reported in the notes. They were also implanted subglandular, above the muscle, less painful, but this gave me problems with palpability, especially considering my low body fat. The surgeon said that Ian Taggart was crazy to have implanted subglandular. I am shocked that they couldn't even be bothered to amend the report to say that I had 270cc implants. Had I known I was 270cc, then I could have pressed my current surgeon for an even smaller revised implant, and had more ownership of what I was doing. Maybe finally getting the smaller breasts I had always needed and wanted. Easy money for them, no accountability. I've had to live with this sloppy, careless work.
