Plastic surgery can be challenging but ultimately rewarding. It is important to have a detailed consultation so that your needs and expectations can be assessed and you understand the benefits, risks and complications related to any procedures you may be considering. We will work with you and counsel you to design an individualised treatment plan to meet your needs. You should feel assured that we will never recommend any treatment or surgery that you do not need, that are unsafe or unproven through research.
Following your initial consultation, you will be given a 'cooling off' period for you to weigh the benefits and risks prior to proceeding with any surgery. Further information can be found here. If you do decide to proceed, you should feel confident that you are choosing an ethical, UK trained plastic surgeon who will work with you to ensure the best possible outcome from your treatment.
