Dr. Jean-Philippe Salmin and Amanda Brunker
Amanda Brunker, novelist, columnist and former Miss Ireland, underwent a breast reduction surgery in our state-of-the-art clinic in Avoca, County Wicklow.
Amanda came in with a good idea of what she wanted. She was able to describe her hopes and expectations to Dr. Jean-Philippe Salmin, as well as her reasons for wanting the surgery and what she wanted to gain from it. “I didn’t just want a reduction in size,” Amanda explains, “but I wanted my breasts to be reshaped and pretty-looking like they were in my late teens.”
Many women may read that and wonder what are the other 2 wishes Amanda is planning on making to whatever genie she managed to find. Even Amanda herself admits “that may sound ambitious”. Amanda had spent years dreaming of getting a breast reduction surgery and had “met with several plastic surgeons but none that I felt 100% confident in.”
After visiting several clinics, with no success, Amanda made an appointment with one of our expert surgeons, Dr. Jean-Philippe Salmin.
“The minute I met Jean-Philippe Salmin I knew I had met the surgeon for me.” Having consulted Dr. Salmin, and listened to his advice and suggestions, Amanda decided to go ahead and get the breast reduction surgery she had wanted for years.
Amanda explains how what she had wanted was “exactly what I got. Whatever about the rest of me, my boobs look at least 20 years younger and that makes me a very happy woman”.
Amanda also explained in her column in the Sunday World about the fantastic post-operative care she received in the Avoca Clinic. She visited the clinic a few weeks after her surgery for a routine “tidy-up” which was “all part of the service”.
“For anyone interested I would highly recommend the Avoca Clinic and my surgeon Jean-Philippe Salmin to anyone. This is a major operation but everything went without a hitch for me. I’m truly a happy customer.”
