Bonnie Whitfield, 31, had always felt uncomfortable about the appearance of her nose and after breastfeeding her daughter she was concerned about her breasts too. Bonnie came to Transform and her breast enlargement and rhinoplasty journey began.”I’ve always been insecure about my nose, which has a bump in it. And with regards to my breast augmentation, I decided to have that once I’d had my daughter because I breast fed and it made my boobs look horrible. I spoke to my partner and my mum, and they agreed about my breast augmentation because they understood how I felt about that, and they were very supportive. But at first they felt I didn’t really need to have rhinoplasty because they’re used to seeing my face and they thought I was fine how I was.
I chose Transform because I’d done a lot of research before I decided to have surgery, so I knew I was making the right decision. Firstly, I chose them because the surgeons had brilliant reviews online – I read a lot of reviews from happy patients. Also, the free consultation was a big bonus because I felt there was no obligation.
I went for my initial consultation and my advisor went through everything that was available to me. Then I had my appointment with my surgeon and booked in my date for my surgery, which was very exciting. On the day, I travelled up to the hospital and I was greeted very warmly and taken to my room, where the surgeon came to see me. I was then taken down to theatre and the surgeon reassured me because I was feeling quite nervous.
Once I came round from my surgery, I was taken back to my room and looked after very well. I felt like I was in a hotel actually, it was quite a nice little break. I stayed in overnight and went home the next day. The aftercare was fantastic, there was always somebody available if I had any worries and I was able to call someone if I didn’t feel very well.
Then I had my follow-up checks with the nurse, who was absolutely brilliant, she reassured me of everything and answered all my questions. I never felt like I was kept in the dark about anything. I felt like everything was very honest and open, and I could ask any question I wanted to. I was really happy with everything that happened.
The rhinoplasty has had the biggest impact on my life. I no longer fear having pictures taken. I look forward to seeing the pictures people have taken of me because I know that my nose looks brilliant from the side now. That’s just made a massive impact on my confidence. And with regards to my breast augmentation, I just feel much more like me again, I feel like I’ve got my body back and I can wear really nice bras and tops again and I don’t feel like I’ve lost a part of me any more.
The advice that I’d offer someone considering procedures is to do your research, make sure you are comfortable and confident with who you’ve chosen. And find reviews and speak to people who have had procedures done so you can get as much information as possible.
I would definitely recommend Transform. I went for a spray tan yesterday and the beautician who did my spray tan was asking me about breast augmentation and I told her I’d had mine done. She said how wonderful it looked, so I gave her Transform’s number and told her about my wonderful experience.
