It has been touch and go over the past year but I have got the result I’ve always wished for. I am so happy and pleased with the natural look you have given me but more importantly how comfortable it has made me feel about myself.

Mr Sterne is a talented, kind and courteous man and is a credit to your hospital.” Mrs S.L.., Shrewsbury; Facelift

“I had a bilateral reduction mammaplasty operation successfully performed by Mr Sterne and his team. I was offered calm reassurance and a positive, professional explanation of all the procedures involved thus calming my apprehension. During my stay I was afforded the best practices of modern medicine  including good pain management together with the traditional skills of nursing; care, compassion and professionalism. The atmosphere on the ward was one of calm efficiency tempered by personal interest and good humour.” Mrs M.W.., Sutton Coldfield; Breast Reduction

“I am delighted with the abdominoplasty that you carried out on me. The scar is quite delicate and has healed well. The reason I decided to have the abdominoplasty was that the skin on my abdomen was stretched and sagging, and I had very visible stretch marks in the area following my pregnancy 17 years ago. The abdominoplasty got rid of this problem and dramatically improved the appearance of my abdominal area. It is also noticeable that the muscles have been repaired, giving me a waistline and a flat stomach. Thank you very much for the care and attention you gave me. The results exceeded my expectations.” Mrs H.S.., London; Tummy Tuck

“My son was brought into your department approximately 12 months ago with a badly split forehead. He initially was admitted to another hospital, but they felt that he needed the special attention from your department. This is a belated thank you letter to tell you how well his head has healed.

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.

“I would like to thank you and your team for the treatment and care you have provided me. Having built up the courage for many years to go ahead with the procedure, I am so pleased with the result. The discomfort has totally vanished and my self confidence from the appearance (or lack of!) has changed greatly. Thank you for all you have done for me, it means so much.” Miss C.L. Cheltenham; Labiaplasty

“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

“I would like to say a huge thank you for giving me a great pair of breasts! I know how hard you all worked that day and I gratefully appreciate it!
