At Pall Mall, we understand that cosmetic surgery is about helping people and making them feel better physically, emotionally, and mentally. Cosmetic surgery won’t solve all your problems or turn you into someone else. But it may give you greater self-confidence and add to your sense of mental well-being.
Everyone’s reasons for surgery are personal and everyone has a story – that’s why we love to celebrate our empowered patients!
We caught up with one of our past patients AJ to talk about his experience at Pall Mall and how it has changed his life for the better.
Why did you decide to have your procedure?
I decided to have chest reduction as I am transitioning from female to male. I had been on the NHS waiting list for around four years – since I was 17, I’m now almost 21, so it wasn’t the greatest experience for me. I felt like I needed to find somewhere where I could get my procedure done as soon as possible.
What did your procedure involve?
I had chest reduction surgery, so this involved incisions leaving me with a mini anchor shape scar. I had around 110 grams taken from each breast, I also had loose skin before my procedure, so I had that tightened up to give me a more masculine looking chest – which is amazing!
Why did you choose Pall Mall?
I chose Pall Mall because the clinics and hospital are not far from where I live, with it being my first operation, I felt safer going somewhere close to home, so the location was ideal for me.
Pall Mall also offer free consultations which was great, this gave me time to decide if Pall Mall was for me.
When I attended my first consultation as soon as I spoke to my surgeon and patient coordinator, they were so warm, welcoming and friendly, they made me feel so relaxed and excited for my procedure. The time frame from consultation to surgery was quick, so I was excited to proceed and get it done.
Pall Mall also Finance options, which I personally was looking for to help me with monthly payments in order to pay for my procedure.
Everything just seemed to come together after visiting Pall Mall.
Choosing Pall Mall was the best decision I’ve ever made.
How happy are you with the results?
I am so happy with my results, I feel a lot more confident and comfortable in my own skin.
Describe how you feel about your results in three words
If I had to describe my results in three words it would be: confident, excited, and grateful, and I have Pall Mall to thank for making me feel this way!
What advice would you give to someone who is considering chest reduction?
I would say, be relaxed and excited about it because you’ll feel so much better and confident after having it done. Although, I would say try not to hold an exact image or expectation of how your surgery may turn out. Be open minded, trust the process, the results will be fantastic. So, my advice is don’t worry, be happy, and be excited!
