5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

20 Years Old, Essex, Breast Lift - High Wycombe, GB

Mr Richards is an amazing surgeon and have made my dream boobs come true, he is a very nice and approachable. He and his team or nurses answered my questions to the best of there ability at every appointment.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

I Could Not Be Happier with the Outcome of my Breast Augmentation.Better Than I Ever Expected - Princes Risborough, Buckinghamsh

I recommend Dr. R. I have consulted so many doctors and he was the first to give me insights about the procedure. Other doctors would push you to undergo the operation but Dr. R is different he will let you decide whats best for you while giving the pros and cons. When he starts explaining things you cant help but say "I'm in good hands". The outcome of the operation? Love my new breast implants-zero pain or bruising.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

39yrs Old, 3 Children, Breast Zero Volume & Sagged - High Wycombe, GB

Dr Richards is a real people's person, very easy to talk to & at all times I felt comfortable to ask questions etc & he was happy to answer. Operation was in High Wycombe the shelbourne hospital it was lovely I was very well looked after by all staff. He advised on what he thought to achieve best results but never pushed anything on me & ultimately it was my choice. He listened to everything I wanted & expected from breast surgery & delivered, he's magic :) sometimes I feel breast lift with implants lacks the volume "vump" of breast implants alone this was my main concern but Dr. Richards achieved the upper pole fullness that I didn't think was even possible. Amazing work I'm so happy with my result only regret is that I didn't have done sooner! Thanks to all at Aurora

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Happy 1st birthday, beautiful boobies! - East Midlands, UK

My surgeon and his team at Aurora were exactly what I was hoping for. He didn't pressure me into anything at all, and gave me an honest opinion. He said I didn't need a lift, and I took that as a good sign that money wasn't their top priority, that they really did want the best for the patient. The care I received was exceptional, and I was spoiled rotten during my overnight stay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this clinic.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Breast Explant & Tummy Tuck

Dr Richards and his team are truly fantastic. They have changed my life and given me a new found confidence. The care I received during my Operation at the Shelburne hospital and after at the Paddock clinic is second to none. I wouldn't have changed a thing. Dr Richards and his team truly care and made me feel secure.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

NEW PICS - UPDATE.... Day 8 PO -- My Family is Complete, Now is MY Time to Shine! - High Wycombe, United Kingdom

I chose Mr Richards as I had my PIP replacement surgery with him and was very pleased with the experience. I found out about him as I saw him on a documentary on TV when the PIP scandal broke and he was talking about his findings etc and how he has never used the PIP implants and would never have used them as could tell they were a cheap product, he also said that he would cut his fees and help any women that had PIPs to remove/replace, whereas alot of other surgeons were upping their prices!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Excellent Experience , Fantastic Results

Excellent Treatment , very professional and I am extremely happy with the results. Great aftercare , a very positive experience and I would highly recommend Mr Richards if you thinking of having this procedure.

My New Life Starts Here. - United Kingdom, GB

Ok... It's done. All booked for the 25th march 2014. Breast uplift with implants, tummy tuck and mini arm lift! Am I mad? Yes! Am I scared? Yes! But I still want this done more than anything! Let me just explain a little but about me. I was an active child, but when I was about 12 I started getting a bit podgy so my mum put me on a diet. Didn't know at that point I was over weight so I was...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

23 Years Old, Tuberous Breasts and a Much Needed Confidence Boost! - Buckinghamshire, UK

The initial consultation was quite brief- and I spend most of the time with the nurse Aggie, who was absolutely lovely. She is genuinely a credit to Aurora Clinics and along with being professional, actually reminded me a bit of my mum- which made me feel looked after! I met my surgeon for roughly 10 minutes and he was very welcoming and understanding of the problems I had with my breasts. At first he recommended a breast uplift and augmentation- but after I expressed my concerns with the vertical scar he came to the conclusion that he could just as easily do a lift via reduction of the areola. This adaptation to my needs and concerns left me feeling very comfortable with Mr Richards, and not at all pressurized into any rash decisions. On the day of my surgery, Mr Richards came in to take pre-op pictures. I explained that on reflection, I was worried about getting implants that were too big for my frame, As both the 300cc and 330cc had been ordered, he reassured me that he would try both during surgery and see what best suited me; and I am NOT disappointed. So glad that he chose the bigger size- it's like he could see what I envisaged! Mr Richards came to see me directly after surgery to explain how the procedure had gone. He also came to say goodbye when I was leaving the hospital. I would 100% recommend Mr Richards as a plastic and cosmetic surgeon. So far, my results are fantastic, my friends and family think that they are the perfect size, and I am one happy girl!
