Procedures
  • Breast Surgery

    In the breast reduction operation the aim is to reduce the size of the breast whilst at the same time lifting the breast and elevating the nipple to a more ideal position.

    View Procedure

    The aim is to produce a natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance and feel to the augmented breast. The choice of implant, shape, size and placement is individualized with the patient and will be discussed at the initial consultation.

    View Procedure

    There are several types of uplift operation which can leave scars limited to around the areola, to more extensive scars around the areola and down from the areola to the breast crease and also along the breast crease underneath the breast.

  • Body Contouring

    The operation aims to reduce the bulging of the lower abdomen which is caused by excess skin and fat, and may be made worse by a weakness of the abdominal musculature.

    View Procedure

    Liposuction is a technique used to remove localised areas of fat by means of a small metal cannula inserted beneath the skin. The fat is removed by a strong vacuum attached to the cannula.

    View Procedure

    Excess thigh tissue may be the result of abnormal fat distribution, skin laxity, and being overweight. In some patients liposuction alone may be sufficient to correct the problem, in other patients especially in the inner thighs, a skin tightening procedure may be required.

    View Procedure

    The surgery aims to correct the flap of redundant skin and tissue seen under the upper arm when held out to the side. This frequently develops in patients following large weight reduction but may also occur in a slim person with increasing age and consequent increasing skin laxity.

  • Facial Rejuvenation

    With upper eyelid corrections (upper blepharoplasty) the aim of surgery is to reproduce this ideal by removing excess skin and/or muscle and recontouring away fatty bulges. In most cases the scar is inconspicuous.

    View Procedure

    The procedure is undertaken via an incision that runs around the front of the ear, down under the earlobe, around the back of the ear and extends into the hairline behind the ears. The skin is elevated off the soft tissues and the muscles of the neck are elevated and repositioned. In some cases an additional incision is made below the chin and further tightening of the muscles plus/minus liposuction is undertaken.

    View Procedure

    The operation involves dissection not only under the skin of the face, but also into the deeper tissues. This two layered approach creates a more natural effect and prolongs the effectiveness of the facelift. Other procedures may also be required as part of the standard facelift, these include liposuction of the fat and tightening of the muscles under the chin. Some patients will also be having extra procedures such as a browlift, eyelid reductions or fat injections.

    View Procedure

    Otherwise known as fat transfer, can either be done on its own or in combination with other surgical procedures such as face and neck lift. Done on its own it is possible to perform the procedure under local anaesthetic as a day case, but is usually performed under general anaesthetic.

    Liposuction is a technique used to remove localised areas of fat by means of a small metal cannula inserted beneath the skin. The fat is removed by a strong vacuum attached to the cannula.

    With upper eyelid corrections (upper blepharoplasty) the aim of surgery is to reproduce this ideal by removing excess skin and/or muscle and recontouring away fatty bulges. In most cases the scar is inconspicuous. This surgery can be undertaken under either local or general anaesthetic and when undertaken alone is usually a daycare procedure.

    The operation aims to reduce the bulging of the lower abdomen which is caused by excess skin and fat, and may be made worse by a weakness of the abdominal musculature.

    View Procedure

    In a significant percentage of men some breast development will occur naturally. In some this is significant and causes embarrassment and will restrict certain activities (for example swimming and sunbathing). Excess breast tissue development in males is termed gynaecomastia. This can be corrected surgically either with liposuction alone or in combination with surgical excision usually through a semi-circular incision around the areola. In rare cases a form of breast reduction (as per the operation usually designed for breast excess in women – see relevant section) is required.
