      Advice on Implants in the U.K.

      I am planning on getting breast implants in the near future and would like some advice from any ladies that have had the surgery. The NHS has failed me and I am forced to go private.

      Hi Holly,
      Not had implants myself, but did look into it a few years ago as a possibility for the future.

      The consensus I kept coming across was to have it done outside of the UK.

      Many gave good reviews about the gender hospital in thailand.

      My advice would be to research places that do the breast operation, then look up the address on google maps and see what reviews it gets.

      It would give you a guide if nothing else.

      Don't know if this of any use to you but it has a google rating of 4.5/5 with 87 reviews.

      I have been trying to find out where to/not to have it done in the UK for a while and there is very little personal information on the net apart from the clinics themselves. I can only suggest you find a local transgender group, if that is possible, and get some information face to face.

      This is one hospital I've been to many times through an NHS referral by my gp when I was seeing pain specialist there.

      The hospital feels more like a personal home with a lovely reception, and communications with them was actually a pleasure to, lots of parking spaces and I was always made to feel super welcome when there.

      If I was going to risk my body anywhere, this hospital would be the one I would go to.

      For those going by public transport, I normally get bus to the morris dancers pub, then pickeup all white taxi's to the hospital and back, about £3 each way, and they have a nice android / iphone app where you can check where they are on it.

      Hospital: https://www.renacreshospital.co.uk/
      Taxi's: http://www.allwhitetaxis.co.uk/online-booking.html
      Morris Dancers Pub: https://www.beefeater.co.uk/steak-restaurant/Lancashire/Morris-Dancers-Scarisbrick.html

      Premier inn also very close to the morris dancers should you need to stay over if travelling a long distance.

      Hope that helps out :)

      I have not had implants, I was born with Reifensteins Syndrome, my breasts started to develop when I was about 14, something I would not rush into, if your on HRT or going for SRS, the chances are they will develop naturally. but my partner did have hers done some time ago at a clinic in Berne, Switzerland, but many clinics offer the service in London, make sure they have a good reputation and are registered, etc.

      Thank you ladies for your comments and advice.x I tried Mya and was rejected because I don't plan on having the S.R.S. I nearly cried when they told me the news. I am looking into other hospitals at the moment though.

      were you given a reason for the refusal, some surgeons will not operate on a Male to female trans person if they are not already under medical supervision or referred by a GIC for private procedures.

      Yes, I was told that I had to be on prescribed hormones. I went through the proper channels and waited for years before being turned down by the NHS for being on natural hormones. I was told by the clinic that I could take natural hormones, but that turned out to be a lie.

      Unfortunately the NHS does limit some of it's procedures, and how are you defining ''natural hormones'' not sure a GIC, Endo or doctor would prescribe some so called natural hormones.

      The doctor at the clinic said that I could take natural hormones (and yes they do exist). He did not prescribe them nor did I say that he did. I have been referred for laser treatment and voice training in the past and went for both.

      breast augmentation

      Voice training, Electrolysis hair removal (A permanent solution) are not listed as above, not sure about laser
      Sorry I was inferring that some herbal (so called natural hormones are not prescribed or recommended by NHS or GIC units, eg. Pueraria Mirifica etc
