Customer Question

I absolutely hate my NHS tissue expander result and my surgeon is in no hurry to replace with implants. It looks gross feels uncomfortable and due to a sloping side I'm unable to wear unpatterned tops. I would be prepared to pay to have it removed but how do I find a reliable surgeon who would undertake this. 2008 Cancer mastectomy on right side without reconstruction . 2015 grade 3 cancers in right breast mastectomy with tissue expander followed by chemo and six weeks of radio therapy

what part of the UK are you in?

are you looking or a private plastic surgeon in the UK?

can you upload a clear photo of the area which is concerning you?

you have had the tissue expander in for a year?

you still need a surgery to take out the tissue expander and put in a permanent saline or silicone breast implant.

have you had that surgery yet?
