I'm scheduled for Breast Augmentation in March 2013. Weight loss and stress left me with horrible flat, small saggy boobs and stretch marks :( I've been considering it for 2 years and can finally do it! I'm hoping to feel more confident and 'feminine' afterwards. I'm nervous but also just want it to be over!

So I'm 3 weeks PO and the (.)(.)s are softening a bit and I'm in much less pain. They still need to . In my opinion the company I booked through - BBC Direct - have been a NIGHTMARE. I would never use them again!

I have NO problem AT ALL with the surgeon, Dr Satankova, or the ISCare clinic she works in. They were great.

BBC, however, have been awful. Before I went to Prague, BBC promised (in an email) that all patients have an ultrasound to screen against breast cancer. That was a lie and they don't do that. I asked if I could pay for a mammogram but then didn't as I thought I would get the ultrasound and that reassured me. Now I'm worried out of my mind and am going to have to organise and pay for my own mammogram. I'm furious about it. Needless to say I am taking this further as I think it is grossly irresponsible to promise a breast cancer screen and they not do it.

BBC also organised a driver to pick me up from the airport and his fee was included in the price. I didn't understand that I was supposed to pay him and the money would be reimbursed. The driver was fine about it and said I could pay him the next day but the guy from BBC FREAKED OUT and told me (soon before my surgery) that the driver was going to 'call the police' on me! NOT WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR RIGHT BEFORE GOING UNDER THE KNIFE! It was horrible.

Then after surgery I was having problems with my meds that caused a lot of trouble for me. I got no instructions on how to take the meds after I left and I don't speak Czech so I needed help. BBC stated they had a 24 hour 'assistant' who would help me with anything I needed. However when I called him he said he was over 2hrs away and would not help. Eventually I got hold of someone from BBC who said I'd taken too many pain meds. I could have overdosed! He never actually asked what the meds were - not even the brand name or dosage. I asked where I could get more from as they'd run out and I was in agony but he said it wasn't his responsibility. In an email he accused me of lying - saying I HAD received instructions on the meds when I HADN'T. WTF???! He also said that the '24/7' assistant wasn't available as it was a public holiday. So, not 24/7 at all, then! Needless to say I am taking this further as well, as I think it is grossly irresponsible.

When I got home I found out that they'd given me the wrong bra (size B instead of C). I was in a lot of pain and needed ta take it off. The surgeon told me to wear it 24/7 so I was really worried. I emailed BBC who took days to reply then said there was nothing they could do and I should just buy a new one. I asked for a refund (those bras are expensive) and BBC said no. I asked where to buy another surgical bra from and they said they had no idea. Again, needless to say I am taking this further as I think it is grossly irresponsible.

After a few more increasingly hostile emails from BBC it became clear to me that this company just take your money then leave you to it. If anything goes wrong they deny any responsibility and accuse you of lying. I've heard a lot of bad stories about BBC since my surgery. I would not recommend them at all.

This company, BBC Direct, have been a NIGHTMARE in my experience. It may seem like they have good prices but for a couple of hundred quid it was NOT WORTH IT for me. I've ended up paying even more for a mammogram, new surgical bras etc.

NO THANKS, BBC!
