Nuffield Staff
"I would just like to say a big thank you, to you, Mr Fitton and all the nurses that i encountered during my stay at Nuffield hospital and at my pre/ post op appointments. You've all been very lovely and provided an amazing service."

A big thank you

Mrs M Patient
"I have no words to explain my sincere gratitude for all you have done for me. For most of my life I have avoided mirrors and fitted clothing and any kind of event that may show my body. Thanks to you and your team I can now start living again. Thank you to the staff and nurses for the patience and care while I was on your ward; I felt like a nuisance but you always made me feel I was no trouble. This surgery has been a very long time coming and a massive part of my dysphoria. Mr Fitton, you have changed my life, thank you!"

I can now start living again

JE Patient
"I had been to a few open day consultations before 2019 when I came to Mr Fitton to finally commit to cosmetic surgery. I had strong faith that was the right decision to proceed and following the first surgery in December 2019, that faith was confirmed. Although I did need follow-up surgery to complete the desired outcome, I knew the decision to have cosmetic surgery was the right one and there are no regrets. I am much happier and much more confident and can feel I will continue to gain back confidence as I recover. "

AD Patient
"Just a little note to say the upper blepharoplasty you performed on 2/12/20 has settled down beautifully and looks very good. It took 3 months to settle completely. It is symmetrical, no scarring and I no longer feel like I'm peering out from under an umbrella ! Again, very many thanks for your expert work."

Expert Work

Abdominal Plasty

Mrs A Patient
Thank you for looking after me and making me feel comfortable. Thank you for being a major step in my journey. I’m glad that I chose you as my surgeon and I appreciate what you do.

I’m glad that I chose you as my surgeon

C Patient
"We hadn’t realised how much her protruding ears affected her in her adult life and were somewhat shocked when she told us she had arranged her operation at the Nuffield. I have to say it has transformed her – she is so much more confident, never wears her hair down and the slight stutter she had has disappeared. I just wanted to let you know the impact your expertise has had on her. Money well spent. I can’t thank you enough."

The impact your expertise

A big thank you

Anon Patient
"Following several years putting up with ‘heavy eyelids’ I decided to have a blepharolasty... It’s the best decision I’ve made in ages! No more feeling tired from the sheer effort of just keeping my eyes open. I’m amazed at the overall improvement in my wellbeing and would recommend the procedure to anyone who is going through the same experience as I did, and that I look better as well is a pleasant added bonus!"

The best decision

M Patient
"Thank you so much for taking such great care of me"

Thank you

J Patient
"Thank you very much for my new nose. I am very, very pleased and can't stop smiling."

Thank you for my new nose

KS Patient
"Words cannot describe the heartfelt thanks for what you have done for me and my family. The cancer diagnosis was a terrible blow. After surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy my self esteem hit rock bottom. I became unhappy to go anywhere because I thought people would be able to tell I had had a double mastectomy. Your knowledge, kindness and skill have given me my life back again. Now I am very proud of how my body looks and I walk tall with confidence; this in turn makes for a very happy family. Thank you for your gift – your skilled work gives us a new beginning. You really make a difference to everyone you help."

I walk tall with confidence

KS Patient
"The transformation is remarkable and I felt I had to write to ask if you would please pass on my sincere thanks to Mr Fitton. His skill and the outcome of my operation has removed the memories of 5 years of embarrassment for me."

Remarkable Skill

Mrs S Patient
"I just wanted to thank you (and your team) for the life-changing result of my top surgery. This will provide me with the freedoms that I’m excited to enjoy, including being able to go swimming and actually staying cool in summer! All jokes aside, you have helped to mark a new chapter in my life, for which I am incredibly grateful."

A new chapter in my life

J Patient
"Thank you so much for opening my eyes."

Opened Eyes

R Patient
"I have a new breast which looks right at home beside the old one. If you saw me walking down the street you wouldn't beleive what I been through the past three years. It's a fantastic feeling knowing that I can go in shops and buy new bras and tops knowing that I haven't got to worry that my prothesis won't show or fall out. I am very pleased and proud of my new boob and the fact it has given me my confidence back. Sometimes I didn't think I would make it, but I am so glad I had my reconstruction. I feel like I've won the lottery."

It has given me my confidence back

"Thank you so much for all your help in arranging my procedure. You have been incredibly helpful and I’m pleased to say that it all went really well! Mr Fitton and the Duchy team, all of the staff were amazing and I was looked after every step of the way. Everyone I met at the hospital was kind and attentive and I felt so reassured and relaxed."

Thank you so much

Mrs S Patient
Thank you so much for the amazing job you have done on my forehead! I am over the moon and you have made such a difference to me. You are amazing!

You are amazing!

R Patient
"Thank you so much for seeing me yesterday – I am absolutely delighted with the outcome of the free flap/DIEP reconstruction. The last two years have seen some significant challenges with breast cancer diagnosis, mastectomy (with cannonball) and just getting on with life with anastrazole. However, having a reconstruction which looks and feels like a normal boob has helped hugely to put that well in the past."

You helped hugely

FO Patient
I would just like to thank you and your staff for the wonderful treatment I have received. Everyone was very kind and that made a huge difference. You have been particularly easy to talk to and amazing at your job!

Wonderful treatment

PC Patient
"Thank you very much for, first of all, offering me the surgery which has so much enhanced the quality of my life, and then, for executing it with so much skill. You achieved a truly wonderful result, which under the circumstances, must have been really difficult."

Executing Surgery with Skill

DF Patient
"From the time my husband and I attended the consultation you put our minds at ease, we felt in real good hands, and when you said that you could remove all the scars I was "Wow really", but to be honest I did not believe that one of them could be removed with such a brilliant result. The day that we saw the surgery for the first time we were speechless, we both had tears, happy tears, and when I got home and stood in front of the mirror I was shaking from shock. I could not believe what I was seeing...This procedure has given me back my confidence and I feel so much healthier. I am forever grateful to you, for the person I am now looking at, and how I feel. I wish you every success in your field."

I am forever grateful to you
