Deborah, UK – Tummy Tuck, Breast Lift
I had a tummy tuck and breast uplift with Lisa Sacks in September 2016.
After losing just over 10 stone naturally, I was left with loose skin across my stomach and less that pert breasts. It was such a frustration because I had worked hard to lose the weight and yet I didn’t feel that I had a body to celebrate. Being 28, I should have spent the past few years enjoying myself but I had lost all confidence. Luckily, I had an understanding partner but it was very difficult.
I initially met Lisa in 2014, I was then a size 12 (having previously been a size 24). I wanted to find out more about the tummy tuck. At the time, I couldn’t see how it would work financially and I wanted to try and reprogram my mind to accept my body. I walked out of the initial consultation feeling that it wasn’t for me. There was absolutely no pressure from Lisa to continue and I really respected this.
Two years passed and I had dropped to a size 8. After maintaining this for a year and settling into my new active life, I felt it was time to rethink the procedure. I didn’t want to be ashamed of my partner catching a glimpse of my body any more.
I emailed Liana (Lisa’s PA) and she quickly arranged another consultation, again, no pressure to proceed and this was free as I’d paid for the initial consultation before.
Lisa talked me through the procedure again and I asked to add the breast uplift.
I booked the procedure and the rest is history.
Lisa and her team have been on hand pretty much 24/7 whenever I have been worried about pre-op or post op issues. Her care is exemplary and her interest in you as an individual is priceless.
A friend, who also had a tummy tuck with Lisa had mentioned her as a possible surgeon but I’d already come across her name as no.14 in The Times ‘Top 30 Cosmetic Surgeons’.
I felt so lucky that such a well regarded surgeon lived in my city! I was also inspired by her passion for art and knew that this would translate into her medical profession. As Lisa often says, ‘I am a dress maker’, and what an absolutely stunning dress she has made out of my body! No longer do I fear being seen, in fact, quite the opposite! I am so excited with my new physique that I have been relaxing in spas in my bikini, attending pole dancing and burlesque classes and have just booked a boudoir photo shoot! It’s all thanks to Lisa!
With regard to price, it may seem expensive in comparison to going abroad but, what you have with Lisa is an unquestionably amazing aftercare package. She is with you every step of the way. She will see you each day you are in the hospital and personally changes your dressings. She is on hand by email and text to answer any questions and does not hesitate to invite you back in to see her face to face if you are at all concerned. This is included within the price. It is honestly invaluable! Please, if you take nothing else from this, understand that I am by no means a ‘wealthy’ individual but every penny I spent on this procedure was worth it and I regret nothing!
I chose The Chesterfield because it was the hospital in which Lisa practiced.
It is a wonderful place and feels more like a 5 star hotel rather than a hospital. The staff were amazing. I couldn’t thank the anesthetist enough who called me the night before I went in for the surgery to check if I was worried about anything. I was indeed worried about having a line in my hand (silly, I know) but he immediately put my mind at rest and assured me that I could have numbing cream. This meant so much.
The food was amazing and the care from nursing and support staff was fabulous.
I would not hesitate to recommend Lisa and The Chesterfield.
