You are welcome to refer yourself for a private consultation at Mount Stuart Hospital using the contacts provided.
Consultations will take about 30 minutes. We will discuss any breast symptoms and any previous medical problems. You will be examined and, if appropriate, we can discuss surgery. Any special tests including mammograms can be organised from this first consultation.
If we discuss surgery it may take more than one consultation for you to make a fully informed decision as to whether surgery is right and which option to choose.
We have a comprehensive portfolio of clinical photographs and diagrams. These help discussions, but you may find it useful to bring in pictures that show what you do or don't want from surgery. You can also bring a list of questions you have.
Second consultations for cosmetic breast surgery do not normally carry an additional fee, even if you decide not to go ahead with surgery.
Breast augmentation (enlargement) is a commonly performed surgical procedure. The aims of breast augmentation surgery are:
- To enhance the shape of the breast
- To increase the size of the breast
- To compensate for asymmetry (differences in size and shape) between breasts.
Breast reduction and uplift surgery aims to improve the size and shape of the breast by removing excess breast tissue and trimming the skin. The remaining breast tissue is re-modelled, the nipple repositioned and skin carefully sutured to give a pleasing appearance to the breast.
An overnight stay in hospital is usually required, but I do not normally use drains in the breast.
More details including the answers to commonly asked questions can be found through the link below.
The life expectancy of modern breast implants is about 15 years. However, this can vary for a number of reasons.
Women with new breast symptoms are advised to contact their GP to consider referral to a specialist breast unit. Ruptured implants and "silicone lymph nodes" are usually diagnosed by breast ultrasound scan. Mammography is also a standard investigation of new breast lumps and may help differentiate breast lumps secondary to ruptured implants from other breast lumps. Under some circumstances breast MRI scan may be recommended. A biopsy may be recommended if there is any uncertainty about the diagnosis but not if the scans are unequivocal.
Although there is no evidence that the silicone used is in dangerous ruptured implants should be removed along with any lymph glands that are causing symptoms.
Mr. Green specialises in the diagnosis and safe removal of breast implants. He is also an expert in corrective surgery where necessary.
Much of Mr. Green's expertise and practise is in breast reconstruction surgery.
Breast reconstruction is performed at the time of cancer surgery ("immediate") or after recovery from mastectomy and any other breast cancer treatment ("delayed")
There are many techniques available to reconstruct your breast, most of which are available on the NHS. These use silicone implants, your own tissue, or a combination of both.
Partial, or oncoplastic breast reconstruction, involves removing a larger part of the breast and then remodelling breast or using a a local “tissue flap” to reconstruct the remaining breast. This preserves the shape of the breast during surgery.
I no longer sit at the back in a baggy jumper, never standing straight so no-one notices my un-level boobs, now I am out at the front again showing off my cleavage. If the weather were nicer I would be back on the beach, this time without the huge t-shirt. And this coming Christmas I will be in that little black dress"
Ms E, breast augmentation (for asymmetry),
"I am writing regarding the breast reduction surgery...I would like to thank you profusely, it has made an enormous and significant difference to my life both medically and psychologically. My self-confidence and self-esteem has increased considerably and I am extremely happy with the results."
Ms B, bilateral breast reduction
"To say I am pleased with the result is a major understatement, when the dressing was removed for the first time and I saw the result I cried from sheer relief. My new breast is so natural, the scarring minimal and my recovery straightforward and relatively simple."
