Kind, careful and measured throughout the process. The only surgeon I saw and thoroughly delighted with both his work and care, in addition to his nurse Gerry who was reassuring and lovely throughout.

I've never been particularly happy with my breasts. As I think is quite common, as I put on a little weight in my 40s they got disproportionately bigger and even when I lost weight they didn't get any smaller. 5' 3" and approx 36E/F. Nipples have always been more downward facing than I would have liked and one breast slightly bigger than the other. Running very uncomfortable and they just got in the way all the time, not to mention not being able to get tops and dresses that fitted. At the ripe old age of 54 I had a bit of a revalation - I was in the fortunate position to be able to afford surgery and after doing a bit of research online I decided I was going to take the plunge. More research and I concluded that Mr Turton was a clear choice given that breast surgery is his specialty and he has bags of experience. His website has pretty much all the information you need, and also lots of before and after pictures to give an idea of what can be achieved. I made my first appointment and had the opportunity to discuss in detail what the procedure entailed, and ask any questions. I didn't have a specific size in mind - just smaller and more in proportion with my height and frame and a better nipple position. My op was held up a bit due to the COVID pandemic but had my surgery in November 2020 and here I am just over 3 months later. All of the staff at the Nuffield were great and my stay there was very comfortable. It was the first time I'd had a general anasthetic so I was a little nervous about that, but it all went very smoothly and wasn't long before I woke up in recovery. The first night was a little uncomfortable with the drains in place but these were taken out the next morning and I was able to go home. I was, and stll am, amazed with the results. Some swelling at first, and everything felt tight, but all the stitching was so neat and hardly any bruising. I had retained full nipple sensation and healed so quickly with no complications, minimal painkillers and just a week off work. I know I was lucky from that perspective, but that was my experience. After a month or so, the swelling had pretty much gone and my breasts were starting to soften and get a more natural shape. 12 weeks post surgery everything has healed beautifully (although the internal stitches will still be dissolving) and the scars are gradually fading. I can sleep on my side and front and go without a bra without any discomfort. I now love my breasts rather than hating them, can fit into clothes without them being too tight and can exercise comfortably - they are completely soft and have a lovely natural shape. Wish I'd had the surgery years ago, but so happy I did it and if anyone has any hesitations, Mr Turton and Nurse Gerry will put you at ease, answer all of your questions and deliver the very best results - I could not recommend more highly.

I first Met Mr Turton @ The Spire after a recommendation from a work college. I was really nervous; I had wanted a breast reduction for many years. I have always felt very self-conscious of my breast and very embarrassed. I have suffered with extreme back and should pain and headaches. At my first meeting with Mr Turton, he took the time to go over the surgery in great detail’s the impact of the surgery and what to expect in the coming weeks after surgery. He explained how this would be life changing; also we talked about the scares. I have to say I was totally honest I wasn’t bothered what they looked like I just wanted rid of all the weight / pain, even at a cost of losing the nipples. I also met Jill the breast nurse, who would be looking after me, through this process. She was so lovely and sympathetic and was at the end of a phone / email if I needed her. Also we met when I was due for my wound check. My surgery was a complete success and I really can’t believe the difference, the scares are amazing and from someone who had no confidence before surgery, they look amazing. Mr Turton has done an amazing job, I would highly recommend him. At my finally check-up I found myself to be a little emotional, the surgery had been such a great success and to say thank you just didn’t seem enough.

Having spent most of my adult life contemplating a breast reduction/lift I finally bit the bullet aged 44 and started looking for a surgeon. Based on his experience and patient reviews I chose Mr Turton and I'm incredibly happy that I did. From the initial consultation, through to discharge, Mr Turton put me at ease and I felt I was in very safe, expert hands. The surgery and recovery was straightforward. I followed all post op advice and I was back at work within a week and running again after eight. The results have been life changing for me, physically and mentally. My back and shoulder pain has gone, as have the nagging feelings of self-consciousness about the size and appearance of my chest. Now three months on from surgery my scars are fading, softening and I have breasts I am proud of! Mr Turton's expertise and professionalism is matched with humour and warmth so to anyone seeking a similar surgery, I would absolutely recommend Mr Turton.

I chose Mr Turton for my surgery as I had been recommended by a friend and she was so pleased. I feel that he really took time to get to know about me as a person and what I wanted. Using his knowledge and experience he was able to advise and support me in what was a big decision. I am so pleased with the results, my breast sag was quite severe and for me to have the end result that I have got is complete proof of Mr Turton’s expertise and how amazing his work is. My scarring is also very minimal and neat. I have felt so safe under the care of Mr Turton from start to finish and I trust him completely. I really appreciate the work that he has done and the way that he has taken care before, during and after surgery. I would and will be recommending him in future.
