Mr Ioannis Ntanos
1st April 2022
I got referred to Ntanos through GenderGP in December and have a great experience throughout. As an autistic person, I suffer a lot of anxiety with the thought of the unknown and having a surgeon who is excellent at communication really helped to ease my anxiety during this time.
The initial consultation was extremely comfortable despite the nature of having to have my chest examined and Ntanos answered all of my questions. I loved the fact that he included my partner in the discussion as well and answered any questions that he had.
The type of surgery I wanted was explained to me in clear detail and I appreciated his honesty, as he wouldn't suggest a surgery that wouldn't best fit the patient and their desired results. I managed to get a surgery date for 2 months later which was fantastic!
On the day of my surgery, I was respected by the whole team, pronouns double checked and it was overall a nice environment to help my anxiety before the procedure. My chest was marked up and once again I was made to feel comfortable with this situation.
I'm now 11 days post op and I had my post op appointment 2 days ago. Ntanos took me through the aftercare and once again answered any questions and sent me the aftercare instructions over email whilst I was there to ensure I had them to refer to. Since then I've had communication with him about my recovery and know that if I have any questions or concerns I can contact him.
So far I'm extremely happy with my results and can't wait to see how I heal. I would absolutely recommend Ntanos to my friends seeking the same surgery as this has been the least stressful part of my transition. It's nice to be treated by someone who's not only a great surgeon, but an active ally in the trans community.
