“I had Rhinoplasty surgery over a year ago now and I am very pleased with the results. I would 100% recommend Mr Duncan Atherton to anyone thinking of having this same procedure. I had a deviated septum which had previously been operated on by a surgeon who done more harm than good which left me with a sharp bump, my nose is now finally straight and the bump has completely gone.“

    What an amazing experience, Mr Atherton was exceptionally professional and empathetic. For years I had not only suffered Neck, Back and Shoulder pain all due to the heaviness of large breasts, but also comments. I saw one of the founder surgeons on the TV programme - Embarrassing Bodies, googled this person and read all the information on the My Breast website and then I completed the online form for a call back. I was contacted by Sabreena Raju who has been brilliant, she is friendly, and kept me informed on the next steps. Mr Atherton performed my breast reduction in June and I have recovered with no problems by following the advice they have offered. For Mr Atherton I was a challenge because of my age, but my health is good, he was brilliant from my initial consultation to my Post -Op review. I cannot say a big enough Thank you to Mr Atherton for his cate and attention to detail and to both him and Sabreena for listening to me. I feel as if i have a new lease of life and feel amazing both physically and mentally. I am absolutely delighted with my results in fact I have recommended Mr Atherton to my sister who will have her surgery in the next few weeks - So thank you Mr Atherton you are an amazing surgeon!

    Amazing surgery, Mr Atherton was very patient with me and gave very good advice. Scars are amazing, can hardly see them at all. So happy with the size of my implants and I would definitely recommend Duncan Atherton to all my friends and family. I am so happy and now feel so confident. He's an amazing surgeon and Jacinta, his PA, was also very helpful and friendly.

    I cannot describe how pleased I am with the results. My experience with Mr Atherton has been above and beyond what I expected. I was unsure about sizing before the operation, and am now so glad I trusted his decision. Scars are tiny too!

    I am so delighted with the results of my breast reduction performed by Mr Duncan Atherton that I have recommended my sister to him. My journey was not easy, I have endured years of Neck Shoulder and Back pain, ridges in my shoulders and to top it all not very nice comments. All of which had affected me both physically and mentally, this I never realised until after my surgery. My first encounter with My Breast Organisation was after seeing a programme called embarrassing bodies on TV. I read all there was to read about on the website and then made a request for a call back, I received a phone call from a lady called Sabreen Raju, introducing herself as a patient advisor, she asked what surgery I would be looking for, and then made arrangements for me to see Mr Atherton, she explained what to expect in my consultation with him. I met Mr Atherton what a truly professional gentleman he was kind and understanding he made me feel at ease, I knew I may encounter problems because of my age (67) however, this did not deter him. I had my surgery in June and have made a remarkable recovery thanks to the brilliant care and attention from both Mr Atherton and Sabreena. I feel great both physically (with no Neck, Back or Shoulder pain) and mentally and its so nice to be able to feel good in clothes without the personal comments I've had previously, I now have a new found confidence. I not thank Mr Atherton and Sabreena Raju enough for their professionalism empathy and understanding enough. For me great job great team thank you

    I am delighted to recommend Duncan Atherton. He is a friend and colleague who I have known for several years. He has a major interest in paediatric facial deformity and facial surgery in general. He works with children with cleft lip and palate both here and abroad and as part of that profile has a major interest in adult facial surgery including rhinoplasty. He is already well recognised in the field of aesthetic rhinoplasty and facial aesthetic surgery.
