In October 2017 I had a bi-lateral mastectomy following a 3rd diagnosis of breast cancer. I had previously had radiotherapy to both breasts. I met with Dr Matthew Peters prior to my mastectomy regarding breast reconstruction. Dr Peters is not only an excellent surgeon, I have found him to be extremely approachable, informative, always available to listen and answer questions. My reconstruction journey has been bumpy, mainly because of My compromised skin quality. At present I have air expanders in and am slowly expanding, implants will be the next step. The approach and attention Dr Peters has and continues to provide is amazing and very much appreciated. Behind the scenes the staff at Valley Plastics have also been a huge help, particularly Claire (nurse). The caring attitude of this practice is first class as are the skills of Dr Peters. I feel very lucky to be in his care through this difficult time.
