Private recommendations for tongue tie in London

My DD has a tongue tie that I believe is making breastfeeding more difficult than it needs to be. Local BF group won't refer me as I am not in that much pain and baby is gaining weight.

I am getting a second opinion from a lactation consultant next week. I am aware that the NHS waiting list is long so I am looking for private recommendations in the London/Kent area.

Has anyone had this procedure done privately? Could they recommend any practitioners or clinics?

Yes - Feeding First in Sutton was good when my son's tongue tie was cut a few months ago. They have a website.

We took our DD to Dr Levinkind. He’s a paediatric dentist and uses laser to do the procedure. He did her tongue and lip tie at the same time. I thought he was very good, he has loads of experience, she was just a few weeks when she had it done so I was very nervous but he was great. We went to his place in Finchley but I believe he works from Harley St too.
