Grace in her own words
Best memory with a patient
I had a lovely patient come in looking for breast implant replacement surgery. She had a bad experience with the last hospital she had worked with and so was very wary of moving forward. It was a great experience to get to build her trust and develop a relationship where she was comfortable and confident moving forward and to watch her confidence increase throughout the process.
One thing you wish everyone knew
Surgery is a very personal decision and patients need to take their time considering this. It can massively improve the quality of life of patients, but you need to be realistic in what to expect.
A piece of advice you’d give someone considering surgery
Do not cut corners- the decision to have a cosmetic procedure is a massive emotional decision, as well as a financial one. Surgery is a long-term investment, and you want to ensure you are getting the quality of care your body deserves.
