5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Mum, 40yrs - Natural Shaped Breast Augmentation

Dr Ross is confident and professional, and one of the things I appreciated most was that he is very honest about what he feels are realistic expectations and also what he is and is not prepared to do. His work is his reputation and so he will not compromise, he is a perfectionist. He provided me with all the information I needed to make an informed decision. Having done my research I knew the effect I wanted to achieve and Dr Ross listened and then advised me on the size and shape of the implants to achieve the natural effect I desired. His ‘bedside manner’ is calm, kind but to the point which I appreciated. Dr Ross is an exceptional surgeon, he deserves his title as ‘The best Surgeon for Breast Augmentation’ in Tatler Magazine. As much as Dr Ross deserves this positive review, so does his amazing team.

Fantastic Experience

Gary came highly recommended to me and I now know why. I found Gary to be a very straightforward, honest and realistic surgeon. I felt completely looked after and well informed from the first consultation right through to post op check ups and I have very pleasing results. I was never put under pressure to go ahead with any surgery and was encouraged to go away and have a think over all of the...

33 Years Old, No Children, Size 34B Breasts to Size 34DD - The Alexandra, Cheadle, UK

I have always wished to have larger, fuller breasts as I believed they would suit me. I am slim (UK size 10) and not short, but not particularly tall either (5'4"). When I decided that I wanted to go ahead now, I researched online for the best surgeons for this procedure and found Mr Ross. Mr Ross was reassuring from my first meeting. Taking the appointment in hand I felt that I had been given all the information I needed, and yet was discouraged from making any quick decisions. Instead I was advised to go home, consider everything I had learned, and try some different sizes on with my clothes (using rice bags - great and effective trick!). When I returned, my questions were fully answered and I was able to book my surgery for a few weeks time, which suited me perfectly. On the day of the surgery, I was naturally anxious. Mr Ross, his anesthetist, and his nurses were very kind, and helped me to relax as much as is possible before surgery. My room and general surroundings were excellent, and I felt in safe hands. Upon waking up, a nurse by my side ensured I was not in pain by providing me with a painkiller. I was pleasantly surprised that the pain was less than I expected. I was looked after over night before being discharged with good instructions on how to manage any discomfort and help my recovery go well. Even on day one, with the blue glue visible and my breasts swollen, I could see the surgery has excellent results. My recovery was rapid, and the pain eased quickly. Only once did I worry when I had a strangle prickly feeling in my breasts, but an email to Mr Ross at 8pm that night was responded to immediately, and a call from my nurse followed shortly afterwards. It turned out to be nothing but the effects of wearing a nylon sports bra all day and night. It was easy not to worry with such good and consistent care. At four weeks, I felt fully recovered, but continued to adhere to instructions to wear the sports bra 24 hours a day except for when showering, and avoiding chest exercise. At six weeks I was officially "signed off" and allowed to go bra shopping! The results of my breast augmentation far exceed my expectations. My breasts were originally quite different in size and my nipples uneven. Today my breasts are full, far more evenly matched, and despite the size increase do seem to suit my figure well. I had little breast skin originally due to having no children and small breasts, and tear drop implants above the muscle. They have settled incredibly natural, both in look and feel. I'm thrilled with them. I absolutely love them. I would suggest that Mr Ross deserves his write up as one of the best surgeons for breast augmentation in Tatler Magazine, and would thoroughly recommend him.

Breast Augmentation - Alexandra Cheadle UK

I had several consultations with Gary Ross, we discussed my expectations, Gary explained thoroughly all options and more importantly the size of implants that would enhance my body shape and look natural. My final results are truly amazing. Gary and his team were available at all times prior to my surgery to help and advise with any questions or concerns. The aftercare I have received has been amazing, Gary and his Anaesthetist Phil Haji Michael took the time to visit me frequently both before and after my surgery and during my stay at the Alexandra Hospital. Gary's personal assistant Vicki & her aftercare team were excellent. Gary is a true professional and for me personally this has been a wonderful overall experience.

20 Yrs Old, No Children Petite Frame - Cheadle, GB

I have so many amazing things to say about Mr Ross he really is top class! I had done my research and gone to many consultations but non came close to the one with Mr Ross. Straight away I felt at ease he made me feel completely comfortable right from the word go I explained what I wanted and he listened then we discussed more into detail the size of the implants and so on until we agreed in what was best for me and my body. The good thing about Mr Ross is he will only do what he thinks is right he won't do anything that could cause problems or hinder you later on and that's what I liked the most and the results are amazing they look so natural but are ofcourse a lot bigger,I'm so glad I went with Mr Ross he really is the best and so is the team he works with I even know a lady that works for an implant company and out of all the surgeons in the country she put forward his name and she works with a lot of surgeons. Mr Ross will make your wants and wishes come true I can guarantee you will the same way I do. :)

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Revision, Uplift & Implants - Cheadle, Manchester, UK

Mr Ross is one of the most honest straight forwarding Dr's I have met, he is a perfectionist. He took the time to explain all the options that were open to me & explain each one thoroughly. It took several meetings with in depth examinations & discussions before a date was set for the operation. Having gone through it twice before with major problems both physically & emotionally Mr Ross certainly put my mind at ease. He is without a doubt one of the Best Surgeons in the UK & I would definitely recommend him

Gary was available to listen to me at all times and not just limited to surgery times which was a fantastic help as questions prior to surgery would come into my mind at all times.
