Are you a patient of James G M McDiarmid?
Dr James McDiarmid is brilliant. I booked the procedure after one consultation, for I knew that he was the surgeon I wanted. Through this entire process I have felt reassured, happy and confident in this decision. I am unbelievably happy with the outcome of the surgery. I finally see me.
I found James very easy to talk to and he put my mind at ease from the minute I met him. He answered any questions I had and was contactable via email. He came to see me before the op, after the op and in the morning before discharge. I would have liked more post op care but that's my fault for not asking as well :-)
Would have liked more post operative advice and information.
Duchy hospital cornwall. James was a very nice and warm person. I only saw him once and decided that he was the right surgeon for me. I would recommend James Mcdiarmid if you are wanting this procedure, his work is amazing.
Research online. I had a boob job in 2010 and I never regretted having it done! James was really friendly and made the visits/check ups really pleasant. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting any surgical procedure. He made sure to see me a few times after the surgery to check how things were going and he always got back to me if I contacted him with a question. Don't review him until you have had a few months to settle after surgery. Trust me, because he does great work! I'm very happy with the end result and would never look back. Experiences depend of each persons body and mind set. I think James is a lovely guy and he really did an amazing job.
He was listed in the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, I liked his website, and he seemed very helpful and courteous. Understandably, I was a bit nervous about taking such a huge step, and saw him again twice, and he seemed to lose patience with me for dithering. Otherwise I would have given a higher rating. I may change these ratings later on depending on how things go over the next couple of months.
Surgery, clinic and results were fantastic. After care and information given (as a patient who lives far from the clinic and did not return for dressing changes) was not so good. I would have liked more guidance.
My word of advice for anyone considering surgery is to really carefully choose your doctor, I had a procedure done when I was 14 to pin back my ears and all I can say is thank God I have long hair to cover them because it looks like Freddy from Friday the 13th has had a go at them with a chainsaw. Just because a surgeon has sat the exams and done the training does not necessarily mean he's any good...I really researched my procedure and looked at the pros and cons and went to see two other surgeons who had been in the press for their supposedly 'expert' advice/opinion and my impression was they were little more than self promoting 'experts' who's results, once scrutinised, were mediocre and a little unimpressive, to say the least. Also this industry moves so fast in terms of treatment ideas, procedures/products you want someone at the front of the game and not some dinosaur in a white coat with his head such in the past using the same old techniques for 20 years. Trust me here, Iim the one with the dodgy ears... I was very pleased with my surgeon as I believe him to be a perfectionist with very high standards and excellent results. He specialises mainly in facial and I think breast treatment/procedures. I liked the look of his before/after photos, some are just breathtaking in what he's managed to achieve.
