    I feel fortunate to have found Mr Dickinson. I had been contemplating breast reduction for such a long time. From the initial consultation, I felt relaxed and at ease and knew I would be in safe hands. Procedure was fully explained and operation and follow up appointments went really well. If you are thinking about surgery, please go and see him - my whole experience has quite literally been life changing!

    I had met mr Dickinson in November for a consultation regarding a breast reduction, I was so nervous I didn’t know what to expect, upon arrival the hospital looked amazing as I had never gone private before. I was shortly asked to follow a nurse down to Mr Dickinsons room where he spoke to me about what the operation would intale and any risks or complications that could accrue but assured me of such a minimal risk. I was so confident in him after our consultation i booked my operation for February. On the day of my operation Mr Dickinson came into my room to meet me and further talk about my expectations and what exactly I wanted to gain out of this operation or in my case loose. He drew on me and explained each line and what it meant and made me feel very comfortable. I wasn’t even that nervous I was just so excited to be free off my giant breasts. I woke up from surgery a new woman and I am so so pleased with my results, he did such an amazing job I don’t think it could of gone any better. I was so overwhelmed with the results I cried with happiness. He has honestly changed my life
