We discussed a breast reduction for my 30JJ breast size. On each appointment Mr Basu was fantastic – he made no promises at all but honestly delivered on 
every area! Cosmetically I look truly amazing, the scars are so thin, neat and fabulous. I don’t have back pain. I’m a new person. My breast size is now 34DD”
