I have always been self conscious of my breast as they were a 32A. Whenever I went shopping for clothes I could never buy certain tops or dresses especially ones that had no straps because I always had to wear a bra with chicken fillets to fill out the top. I had many embarrassing experiences with my chicken fillets falling out or poking out the side of my tops. I have always wanted to do something about them but was never prepared to go under the knife to get breast implants done. I then heard of the procedure Macrolane.
I then started doing a lot of research into as it did not seem possible that I could have bigger breast by an injection in 45 minutes and be able to get on with every day things straight away. I went to my doctor and he said it was perfectly safe. As I live in the Channel Islands no body over here does the procedure so I started to look at clinics that did them in the UK which would be easy for me to get to. I came across the Skin Care Clinic and got in touch with them by email to get some information off them. With in an hour I had a reply from Dr Kitchen he told me everything that they do how it’s done and what to expect. After much thought I rang the clinic where I spoke to the receptionist, she was very helpful because I explained that I had to fly out and get there. I was expecting to be put on a long waiting list but they managed to fit me in within 2 weeks of me phoning because I could only do weekends and they were the only days that I could fly out.
Because I had never been to Stratford upon Avon I didn’t know where to go how to get there any everyone at the clinic helped me out suggesting ways to get there. The day of the procedure. I arrive at Birmingham airport, very excited but very scared. I got in the taxi and arrived at the clinic stepped inside and was greeted by Karen who told me to take a seat and will be with me shortly (I had my mum with me so she was holding my hand). We got taken upstairs where I met Dr Kitchen and had my consultation. From the moment we stepped into the clinic it was such a welcoming and calm atmosphere and I felt at ease constantly. After the consultation I was lying down very nervous but was put at ease by both Dr Kitchen and his partner Carron. I told them that I was scared of needles and when Dr Kitchen gave me the anaesthetic Carron was holding my hand constantly talking to me to keep my mind off the injection. Once I was all numb Dr Kitchen started the procedure, he was telling me everything that he was about to do and again Carron stood by my side holding my hand.
At first the feeling was very bizarre didn’t feel much. Then the plastic tube broke through the breast tissue which was slightly uncomfortable but nothing to bad. As the Macrolane was being put in again there was a strange sensation but it was over in a matter of minutes. Once he had done one breast he sat me up to have a look at the difference (at this point I was feeling a bit faint because I am a wimp as it comes to needles) I was shocked and I was smiling like you wouldn’t believe. Karen gave me some water and wiped my head and began again. After half an hour of the whole procedure I was sitting up just staring at my breast I couldn’t believe that I actually had breasts and big ones!! Dr Kitchen told me I was a B cup now. I still can’t get over that after half an hour I went a cup size bigger and was able to get on with every day things! Dr Kitchen sat me down after I had been bouncing off the walls and explained about the course of antibiotics and everything I needed to know about the aftercare. I was actually quite sad that I had to leave but said goodbye and went straight to the pub.
After Macrolane – As the anaesthetic started to wear off I started to feel a bit of pain. But I kept taking ibuprofen which was easing the pain. The first night was uncomfortable to sleep because again I was in pain but my usual sleeping position is on my stomach and I had to be lying on my back. The next day I was flying back to the Channel Islands and everything was fine again I was still in a bit of pain but what can you expect? When I landed Dr Kitchen had tried phoning me but my phone was off and had a lovely message making sure that I was ok and that I was happy with everything.
After 2 days I had no pain what so ever and was back at work feeling incredible I was wearing tops that I couldn’t wear before and they were even starting to feel like normally breast as well. One week later they were back to normal I was wearing my new bra’s that I had brought and kept looking in the mirror making sure that they were real and that I hadn’t dream’t all of this. I would advise any body who is thinking about doing this is DO IT. Ring up organise a consultation and when you meet everyone at the clinic you will just feel so relaxed and at ease. The clinic is very homely its nothing like what you would expect if you were going in for a procedure the one thing that I found lovely was that they had music in the back ground to help you relax. I have to say I have never met people like them and I couldn’t have asked for much nicer people to have done this for me. Thank you so much again you have made me feel so special.”.
