“I could not be happier! My whole experience with Miss Judith Hunter has been amazing. At my consultation appointment Miss Hunter took the time to explain everything I needed to know in great depth. She helped me to understand what different implant sizes would appear like and really helped me to achieve the look I was after and that suited my frame. The whole service was outstanding from the very beginning until the end. I was extremely looked after at the hospital and by Miss Hunter. I am so so happy with my results and I have not had any pain or discomfort like I thought I would, the aftercare is amazing too. I truly believe Miss Hunter is the best of the best. Amazing service, thank you so so much! “

    Miss Hunter is the most outstanding, professional, diligent, thorough, hardworking person you are ever likely to meet, there is nobody else quite like her... When your world is turned upside down after being diagnosed with breast cancer, you meet Miss Hunter and your fears dissolve and your tears stop! Miss Hunter’s professional, reassuring, caring and relaxed nature and her in-depth consultations were paramount for my self confidence and full understanding of exactly what was going to happen before, during and after surgery. It gave me the courage and strength aiding me a swift recovery to be a wife and mother again to my own family. Miss Hunter is an exceptional person and extraordinarily talented plastic surgeon. Miss Hunter’s expertise, hard work and complete dedication makes the impossible possible. I will always feel extremely fortunate to have met Miss Hunter and even more grateful to have had her as my plastic surgeon. Thank you for being truly amazing.

    Breast Reduction
    Miss Hunter performed breast reduction surgery on me (63 year old female). She is absolutely wonderful, both as a surgeon and as a person. She is so calm, kind and utterly professional and I felt entirely at ease and in extremely safe hands. The procedure went very smoothly, with minimal discomfort afterwards, requiring nothing more than a few paracetamol. The incisions healed quickly and cleanly with no infection. I am absolutely overjoyed with the results of my breast reduction surgery, and cannot recommend Miss Judith Hunter highly enough.

    Breast Uplift Surgery (Mastopexy) Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
    From our first consultation I knew that I’d made the right choice with Miss Hunter. She discussed all aspects of surgery with me in detail, including different options, and encouraged me to go away and think things through again before making a decision. The surgery itself was not as painful as I feared. I had a maxioplasty and abdominoplasty (breast uplift and tummy tuck) together - although these procedures are often done separately, I was a good candidate for combining them due to my age, fitness and health. The hospital staff were absolutely wonderful and I went home the following day. I stopped taking pain medication after 3 days as it wasn’t needed, as long as I followed Miss Hunter’s aftercare rules. You have to wear a corset and support bra 24/7, and move little and often, gradually increasing your steps over a couple of weeks. No alcohol, a good diet, lots of sleep etc and, post healing, good scar care are all important for promoting a good result. My after care has been great too. I have seen Miss Hunter on 3 occasions and am due to see her again next week at 9 weeks post-op. Her secretary is easy to contact and responds within the hour, so I have felt reassured that I would be seen sooner or more often if required. My scars remain very red, but the swelling has just about gone, and I am confident that they will fade over time. I am absolutely thrilled with the results already, and can’t wait to get my bikinis out next year! I’m so pleased that I went ahead with the surgery, and that I chose Miss Hunter.

    Miss Hunter was thorough from the outset explaining the choices I had and the option that was best suited to me. She then took the time to explain every detail. She has a very friendly, professional and reassuring manner. And along with her assistant Sophie, you have brilliant access to Miss Hunter, should you need it. Post-surgery recovery was swift and would recommend Miss Hunter wholeheartedly.

    The long and short of it is, Miss Judith Hunter has changed my life! Her surgical skills and artistry in attention to detail is second to none. Given my request, she listened and created...I can only describe the outcome as ‘beautiful’. Skills aside, as an individual she is simply lovely - incredibly warm, personable and gracious in manner. The entire process has been outstanding; from the initial consultation and surgery to the aftercare. Nothing has been too much trouble. Miss Hunter’s brilliance is conveyed in her magnificent results, I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

    My experience with Miss Hunter’s clinic surpassed expectations from start to finish. It is very difficult to choose a surgeon but the faultless reviews she has amassed are telling and testimony to her work. Very pleased with the results of the surgery and can’t recommend Miss Hunter enough.

    Ms Hunter was very warm and welcoming right from the first consultation. There was no talk about money or time scales at all, I was given the time to think the whole process over and talk with my parents before I made any decisions. I felt included with all decisions all the way through, the operation including all possible complications and how they would be rectified in the worst case scenario. I trusted in Ms Hunters expertise immediately and just knew I was in safe hands. Even on the day of the operation Ms Hunter saw me before to make sure I was still happy to continue and reassure me. The after care has been second to none, nothing has been too much trouble even over the Christmas and new year period. I would recommend Ms Hunter a 100%.
