Poor Result - One Nipple Higher Than Other - Birmingham, GB

I had a breast reduction with Mrs Kat hoping to go from an E/F to a C cup but ended up a DD. The nipples were placed high up the breast (not in the middle of the breast tissue) to give a visual impression of the breast being pert but infact I now have alot of tissue below the nipple and have to wear a full cover bra or bikini otherwise the nipple on the left side is seen. I also got a terrible post surgery infection on the left side leading to months of antibiotics and debridement of the wound. I felt Mrs Kat was quite dismissive although the nurse who treated me was lovely. On the day I got the wound debrided I was to be sent home with a supurating wound as they had no treatment rooms available. I was so distressed that I said I would wait. This has caused me alot of distress and the outcome is large scarred breasts with my left nipple sitting at the top of my breast. Maybe she's better with the straightforward augmentations etc. I'm suspicious that a trainee was let loose on me in surgery

So sorry you are not happy with the result. It sounds like you have had a rough time and not really been looked after as you should have been. I hope you don't mind me asking but did you have your surgery Private or NHS? It allways worries me that if you have this done on the NHS they won't make it look aesthetically pleasing as its not classed as a cosmetic procedure. I hope you can get a revision at a later date if its something that you feel you need x

Hi. I funded it myself ta £5600 and because of the length of time off work I had to take time off unpaid which added a substantial amount into the complete cost.
