Yes I had bi lat mastectomy, not same time, Jan was the first op on boob with cancer May was the second op on boob without cancer, depends who you see and how you dig your heels in, I had implants and they were a TOTAL disaster, the first lot capsulated, the 2nd lot done at NNUH by Ms Sassoon, who I have been told is no longer there, she did a real botch job on me and caused me severe back pain as a result of putting HUGE implants in me, BUT if you complain you will encounter problems from other plastic surgeons and they will refuse to do the surgery, I ended up going to Belgium and am DELIGHTED I did. I have two new breasts and under went the DIEP, all the surgeons in this country said I was too slim, BUT I was not, I had the DIEP in Belgium, the surgeon was fantastic, my scan was done the same day, cost £220, the consultant charge was £25, here a private consult.can be well in excess of £250, Ms Sassoon espects the patients to have 2 consultancies BEFORE she does any work on you, good money egh and is it necessary to have 2 consultancies. After all the tests, their multi discipline team agreed I could under go the DIEP and I was not too slim, they no long do implants they think they are unsafe. I could have had th DIEP in private sector here for £55,000 PLUS, the cost in Belgium £20.000, you could fund raise, I would donate for you! Also consider the amount of sex change surgery, they musgt remove the boobs then!
