We recently carried out corrective surgery on a patient who had been traumatised after her initial breast augmentation went wrong. She was too scared to have corrective breast augmentation surgery for SEVEN YEARS AFTER her first cosmetic surgery. Luckily we were able to end her torture during lockdown.
Mother-of-two, Leah, told us how she has found a new lease of life after a botched boob job by an infamous surgeon has been put right – after a ‘nightmare’ seven years.
Leah Maynard had breast augmentation surgery back in 2013, in the hope it would give her a confidence boost. Instead, it left her embarrassed and ashamed, destroying her trust in plastic surgeons.
She said, I wanted the surgery initially because I had breastfed my two children and I had lost all elasticity and volume. I was a C cup before and I ended up a DD, so it wasn’t a massive difference. I just wanted them to look fuller again,” said the 35-year-old, from Preston.
The pocket on the left breast had been made too large enabling the implant to move about. It was very uneven and it wore away at the tissue,” she said.
Self Confidence and Cosmetic Surgery
“It completely knocked my confidence and I was so self-conscious. It was doing things like going swimming with the children or being on holiday that were the worst – you could see that one breast was larger than the other. It was very noticeable. I just thought it would fix itself, but it got worse. It took me years to trust another surgeon.”
She spent years being ashamed of how she looked and covering up wherever possible.
“I had time to think during lockdown to reassess what was important, so I decided to do something about it as it was affecting my quality of life,” she said.
“I was so nervous,” she said.
Best Breast Surgeon in the World
She needn’t have been.
Leah finally plucked up the courage to come for a consultation and it was then that she met consultant plastic surgeon Mr Lambe in Manchester for the first time.
“The first thing he did was to give me realistic expectations,” she said. “He told me what I could achieve and what I couldn’t.
“I was filled with emotion and I felt embarrassed. The main factor was that I trusted him.
When I went in for the second consultation, he arranged for another patient to talk to me, to give me the patient’s perspective. He could see my vulnerability and he wanted to help me.”
“Everything was brilliant. They removed the original breast implants, replaced them under the muscle and repaired the damage that had been done,” she said.
“I was absolutely amazed with the results – they exceeded all my expectations.”
As you can see, this is why Mr Lambe has a reputation of being one of the best breast surgeons in the world!
She was also, understandably worried about how she could have safe surgery during the current climate of Covid-19 risk and restrictions.
She said “The Covid precautions were excellent, they came out to the car, and I had a chaperone. I didn’t come into contact with anyone unnecessarily. It was completely safe,” she added.
Leah, who has a son, 12 and a daughter, eight, said the surgery meant she could start her mental health nursing degree without worrying about her appearance or health.
A Life-Changing Breast Augmentation
“It has been life-changing for me. I just feel lighter and I am so much happier in myself now I know my body is OK. There was a risk that it would have started to wear away the skin, so it was a worry. Now I’ve got peace of mind, not just aesthetically, but knowing that my body is healthy.”
“This experience was so different to the first time round
“I would say to anyone considering surgery – do your research, check the reviews and go to as many consultations as possible to get different opinions. Don’t be taken in by a cheap deal, it’s not about the money, but the trust you have in your surgeon. And don’t let Covid put you off!”

Choose your Plastic Surgeon Wisely
“First visit their website and social media pages to see if their ethos is in line with what’s important to you,” she said.
“Then ask do you feel safe in the hands of your cosmetic surgeon? Can you meet them before they operate on you? You can go on review sites to see how experienced and skilled your cosmetic surgeon is and see the results they have achieved with before and after photographs.
“Cosmetic surgery can really impact on a woman’s life in a positive way as we have heard time and time again, so hearing patient stories is a very positive part of their journey and helping them to feel good about. themselves is the best part of our job.”
Gerard added that building a relationship of trust between the surgeon and patient was a top priority.
Cost of Cosmetic Surgery in the UK
Reflect Clinic Director Joanna Lambe echoed Leah’s advice about research and urged potential patients to avoid clinics that are focused on price or who do not offer the chance to meet the surgeon beforehand.
Lockdown has led to people being increasingly sat at home thinking about and reassessing what they want in life. They have spent a lot of time on Zoom and Facetime videos for work or to see family, which has unsurprisingly made them look at themselves with new eyes.
There has been huge surge in cosmetic surgery in our Spire Manchester clinic and The Wilmslow Hospital in Cheshire for cosmetic surgery procedures such as
Please don’t choose your surgeon based on price. The surgery is not like for like i.e the same service from each cosmetic surgery company. You are paying for the surgeon’s expertise and experience should the operation not go quite to plan they will have the ability to correct any issue on the operating table so that you get a positive and safe result for you.
You can’t put a price on your health and wellbeing, and ultimately your life!
This is why Mr Lambe is the top plastic surgeon, in Manchester, Chester and Cheshire.
