'I had a mastopexy augmentation and I had Mr Young as my surgeon. I found him caring and someone who knew what I wanted. He took great care of me and did such an amazing job. If I need anything else done I would want Mr Young to do my surgery. Before and after care was great. I was really taken care of and I felt in safe hands.'
