Patient Testimonials

“…The day I was diagnosed with breast cancer was the most scary day of my life and I had no idea that I could feel good about myself and my body again. Once I met you, your energy and enthusiasm made me feel that I wanted to go ahead with reconstruction and that you would not let me down. I have no regrets at all and am so proud of my new breasts that I am afraid that I do wear more low cut tops than I did before!

We are so lucky in Birmingham that we have you and your team to help women overcome the horror of mastectomy. So once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart…” Mrs P.W., Birmingham: TRAM Flap Breast Reconstruction

“…I am unable to express how I feel about what you have done for me. I am truly amazed at how you have been able to give me back (and a bit more) what means so much to any woman. I am so pleased with how I look; it has made such a difference to me; I thought, when I had my original surgery that it didn’t matter. I was just so pleased that someone could remove the breast and save my life. I now realise that it really did matter. An awful lot. Once again, thank you so much. I will be forever in your debt, but forever singing your praises.” Mrs S.T., Bromsgrove: Breast Reconstruction

“…How do I thank you for turning my life around…” Mrs L.H., Solihull: Breast Reconstruction

“…I know I gave you a bit of a hard time with an abdominal wound which refused to heal, following a double mastectomy and TRAM flap reconstruction, but we got there in the end didn’t we… Life is back to normal now and hectic as ever, but I thought I would drop you a line to thank you and your team for the care I received. You really do have a gift for making people feel at ease in traumatic situations which goes far beyond any medical expertise, thanks for that. Being diagnosed with the BRCA1 gene was traumatic at the time, but the support I received from your team and Butterflies was fantastic and the results are great. If I can be of any help to you or the ‘Butterflies Breast Reconstruction Support Group’ in the future I would be more than happy to help…” Miss K.W., Great Barr, Birmingham: Bilateral Breast Reconstruction
