The results were great

5 50 Plastic Surgeon Consultation

He is a wonderful man, I had breast cancer surgery on NHS with him. The results were great although I had hypertrophic scarring afterwards, however, it's not his fault. Thanks, Philip.

Achieved the results I wanted with breast implants.

4.5 50 Breast Implants

I visited Mr. Turton for breast augmentation. I expressed that I wanted a natural result to the surgery and I wanted to be proportionate with my frame. We discussed many different options in implant styles, but not implant sizes. Mr Turton has a very different approach to other surgeons/companies in that he works out personal dimensions of the breast and decides the implant size best for the patient. Whereas some surgeons let you pick what size you want without working out dimensions with the detrimental effect of looking out of proportion. I think the difference in his approach could be explained because I was waiting to pick a size, which is not how he works. I had heard from friends who had previously had the surgery that you can pick which size you want, but Mr Turton does work differently. I think it can be daunting that you do not know what size you are having until just before the surgery, but this is because Mr. Turton is the expert and works it out for you. I think I would have liked to have known a little earlier if I was to re-do the experience just for my own peace of mind. I am happy with my size, and they are natural and people have commented even at this early stage on their natural appearance. If you were to visit Mr. Turton and want a considerable sizing change that is not proportionate with your dimensions, I would express this to him initially. I would recommend a second consultation with him to discuss sizing before the operation. Otherwise, you would find out the implant size on the day of surgery. I had two consultations and decided to opt for the 310g moderate profile implants. The size I originally asked for was achieved. Mr. Turton is the best person to decide whether you have your implant placed over or under the muscle, and I was content with the advice he offered me and the way he explained the procedure. When the original swelling occurs after the operation, the breasts look very large, but the swelling will go down. In my case, this occurred faster in one breast than the other, but I was reassured that this was normal. Initially, I was disappointed when the swelling went down because my breasts did look small in comparison. However, now they have settled, I know that Mr. Turton has achieved the breasts I asked for. If I had asked for larger boobs, I am sure he would have obliged, but I took his expert opinion on board, and I am extremely happy with my results. Mr. Turton is supported by a nurse specialising in this area who provides care throughout, and you can contact her on her mobile anytime if have any questions. The contact time you have with Mr. Turton is far less than with the nurse. I saw Mr. Turton twice before the operation, and then once on the day before the surgery for marking up. I did not see him after the surgery (which I presumed I would), but instead, I saw the nurse who was the main source of care. I then saw Mr. Turton two weeks post-surgery for a check-up, and then I will see him again in eight weeks' time. Mr. Turton is incredibly professional, and a very nice man to talk to. It is obvious he listens to what you want. Originally, he had advised me to have high volume implants, but I wanted moderate, to which we worked together to reach the solution. It is important to listen to his advice because he is the expert. One week post-op, I had a slight swelling in one breast and I panicked. To which the nurse saw me straight away. There was no waiting in line or booking appointments, highlighting the level of care offered. Mr. Turton's team offered me security and peace of mind, and the situation was treated appropriately. Mr. Turton has a secretary who you make first contact with who is very professional and friendly. It is obvious that the clinic is very busy, as she does take some time to reply, but when she does reply, her responses are detailed and helpful. I did not receive the price of the surgery until three weeks before surgery (to which the full amount has to be paid one week in advance of your surgery date). I do think this information should have been offered sooner, as people do have to put provisions in place. I do, however, appreciate that this was delayed by the hospital as opposed to Mr. Turton's staff. Overall, I have enjoyed my experience with Mr. Turton, and I would recommend him and his team. Together, we have achieved the results I wanted, and I thank him for that.

The hospital (Nuffield, Leeds) is more like a hotel which enabled me to feel totally relaxed. The staff were not only professional, but incredibly friendly, and I actually enjoyed my time there. The hospital is beyond clean, and I felt as if I were in safe and professional hands.

I can't rate Mr Turton and his team highly enough

5 50 Breast Implants • Paid: £4400

I got a really nice shape to my breasts again! They look fab and I am in proportion and it looks so natural. I paid £4400 which is well worth it for the best surgeon! The hospital - I chose the Leeds Nuffield - where Mr Turton works is so clean and modern and staff excellent. I can't rate Mr Turton and his team highly enough either!
