5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Amazing results with Dr. Dean Trotter!!

I had my BL/BA with Dr Trotter on the 21st March this year. I have lost 56 kg through eating well and training hard and had no breast tissue left, just horrible saggy skin! Dean knew exactly what look I was after and what implant would best suit my lifestyle. We chose 450cc Round, Smooth , Mentor implants placed in a Dual Plane pocket. Dr Trotter is a highly knowledgeable and skilled...

So Happy with my Surgery

Back in January 2017, I had a breast reduction. It was something that I’d wanted to do for years but never had the courage to do it. Finally I felt it was time, so I began the process of looking for a surgeon. I’d been given recommendations from my GP, I’d continuously searched websites for reviews on other people’s experiences which gave me lots of information that I found really helpful...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

I can't praise Dean Trotter and his team enough.

Following being diagnosed with DCIS, I had to have Bilateral Mastectomy + Diep Flap Reconstruction (Breast reconstruction involving tummy tuck), followed in later months with two separate fat grafting procedures (to top up). Dean's 'workmanship' and before and after care was just fantastic. I feel and look great and natural. I highly recommend Dean Trotter to anyone considering plastic surgery...

Mr Dean Trotter did an amazing job with my breast augmentation. I had my surgery on the 10th of January 2017 and it has been the best thing I have done for myself in a very long time. I felt comfortable with Mr Dean Trotter from the very first appointment I had with him. I wasn't really sure what size would be best for me so I told him how I would like to look and left it up to him! and the...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Dean Trotter is an incredible surgeon!

I have just hit over my one year anniversary of having my tuberous breast correction surgery (lift and implants) done by Dean, and to this day I still wake up every morning and am shocked at how perfect they are. Dean is professional and knowledgable yet makes you feel very comfortable and cared for. He goes above and beyond to look after you and was always happy to fit me in for a check up if...
