Breast Cancer Patients Must Feel Satisfied After Reconstructive Surgery, UK

A leading UK cosmetic surgeon and former C4 Embarrassing Bodies expert Dalvi Humzah cautions breast cancer patients that they should not be left unhappy after reconstructive surgery.

Mr. Humzah, a member of the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons is appealing to all breast cancer patients to expect nothing less from their reconstructive surgery after mastectomy.

According to the latest statistics from Breast Cancer Care (2011), the magnitude of women analyzed with the disease in the UK has now escalated from around 46,000 to 47,000.

Plastic and Dermatology Surgery (PDS), Mr. Humzah's clinic, has experienced a considerable increase in the quantity of breast cancer patients ? over the past twelve months - wanting additional reconstructive surgery after a mastectomy, thanks to ?poor? and ?undesirable? results.

Mr. Humzah explained: "With breast cancer being diagnosed in one in eight women in the UK, it has never been so important for women to feel confident in the results of reconstructive surgery following breast cancer.?

He said women who have been examined with breast cancer should not hesitate and not feel uncomfortable in consulting specialist cosmetic surgeons for additional reconstructive treatment after their original cosmetic surgery.

He revealed that after getting feedbacks from breast cancer patients who have visited his clinic during the last twelve months, signified an obvious embarrassment on the part of the patient and are keeping them from pursuing desirable cosmetic results, as the thought of ?lucky to be alive? sets in.

He argues that there?s a need for cancer patients to be confident in the results of their reconstructive surgery, since they have undergone extensive treatment for breast cancer and confronting with the emotional trauma and upset of a mastectomy. Further more, breast cancer patients are entitled to a right to be happy with the shape and look of their reconstructive surgery following a mastectomy.

Mr. Humzah has worked on a number of breast cancer patients to both improve and boost the results of reconstructive surgery. This generally involves making the operated breast appear more natural and symmetrical.

According to one of Mr. Humzah?s patients she chose to seek the help of Mr. Humzah through personal recommendations since she was satisfied with the results of her first operation.

Dalvi Humzah is not only a member of the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons, he is also on the GMC's specialist register and has over ten years experience in his chosen medical field. Also, he has been a part of the Royal College of Surgeons as both at tutor and an examiner.

He has held positions in some of the UK?s more famous hospitals including Guy's, King's College Hospital and St. Thomas', since commencing on his medical career that started in 1988. Humzah has also been a visiting fellow at Sri Lanka's National Cancer Hospital and The Melanoma Unit in Sydney.

Plastic and Dermatological Surgery (PDS), Mr Humzah's private clinic, is located at The Nuffield Hospital, Wolverhampton; Ramsay Healthcare West Midlands Hospital, Halesowen; Nuffield Health Cheltenham Hospital; Spire Southbank Hospital and Worcester. He offers a broad range of surgical and non-surgical procedures at each of the hospitals and has a significant interest in reconstructive surgery for patients diagnosed with cancer.

As an expert he has been invited to appear in several television programmes including Channel 4?s Dispatches where he revealed the truth behind the purported miracle beauty creams; and the hit show Embarrassing Bodies where he performed surgery on patients with sensitive cosmetic conditions that were hurting their self-confidence.
