Breast Clinic Edinburgh, Stirling, Scotland
We provide the full range of symptomatic and aesthetic breast surgery. You will always receive a comprehensive medical appraisal of your symptoms in the clinic, and an honest discussion about the risks and benefits of undergoing surgery.
In the UK, doctors are regulated by a code of practice from the General Medical Council (GMC). They have produced a leaflet for patients considering cosmetic surgery.
Most breast lumps are benign (not cancerous), but it is very important that if you notice a new lump or any other change in your breast (such as dimpling of the skin or inversion of the nipples) that you seek medical advice.
Ms Lucy Khan and Mr Chris Cartlidge specialise in reconstruction of the breasts following mastectomy, using pioneering pre-pectoral implant-based reconstruction. This can reduce the incidence of muscle twitching caused by sub-muscular implants, promote faster recovery, and gives a more natural shape and look of reconstructed breasts.
They are skilled at bilateral (double) mastectomy (prices from £9000 including hospital stay). These are available for patients who have a strong family history of breast cancer, are carriers of a cancer gene mutation (e.g. BRCA1 or BRCA2) or who have been treated for breast cancer in the past. These can be performed to leave a flat chest with neat scars or with immediate skin-sparing, nipple-sparing implant-based reconstruction. They both have a large case experience for lipofilling (fat transfer) to improve the look and feel of breasts previously treated for cancer (surgery and/or radiotherapy) who have deformity, volume defect, asymmetry or tethering of the scar.
Speak to your health insurer as they may cover appointments for you to discuss these options (Ms Khan is fee-approved by the main insurers). Alternatively, the first clinic appointment is charged at £150 with any diagnostic imaging or other procedures charged as extra.
Painful breasts can be difficult to live with, causing anxiety about underlying breast disease and preventing you from undertaking normal activities. Our expert consultants will examine you and undertake all necessary investigations. We can advise you on how to deal with the pain.
Male Breast Symptoms
Although rare, men can get breast cancer and any new lump needs to be investigated. You will need an expert examination, appropriate imaging and biopsy if required. Male breast problems are treated with medication or surgery.
