We offer convenient appointment times with a cosmetic surgeon to talk through in detail the cosmetic procedure you’re considering, making sure that you’re fully informed and you have time to reflect on your decision before you agree to surgery.
Liposuction is a one of the most popular cosmetic body procedures. It reshapes and slims down areas of your body by removing excess fat cells. It can be especially helpful in areas where stubborn pockets of fat build-up and won’t shift, such as the thighs, buttocks, hips, stomach, upper arms and the male chest.
Your cosmetic surgeon will perform liposuction whilst you’re under general anaesthetic. It typically takes between one and three hours, depending on the amount of body area being treated.
A tummy tuck is also called an abdominoplasty. It’s a surgical procedure designed to reshape your stomach and abdomen and create a shapelier and slimmer body. Your surgeon will remove excess fat and skin and if required tighten your abdominal muscles.
An abdominoplasty is often popular with men and women who’ve lost a substantial amount of weight or after having a baby and are then left with loose saggy skin around their stomach. A tummy tuck removes this excess skin and tightens stretched abdominal muscles. It’s also ideal for reducing tummy bulges that are resistant to diet or exercise.
Tummy tuck options include: standard, mini or extended and are usually chosen dependent upon the amount of loose skin to be removed. Your cosmetic consultant will talk through the different options. A tummy tuck operation is performed under general anaesthetic and normally takes up to three hours.
An arm lift or brachioplasty aims to produce a slimmer and more toned arm. The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic and involves removing excess skin from your underarm and tightening the skin. Liposuction may also be used at the same time to remove excess fat and to help re-shape your arms.
Often as you get older or if you put on weight the skin under your arms can start to sag. This is sometimes referred to as bingo wings or bat wings. An arm lift will renew your confidence to wear short sleeved tops again without feeling self-conscious.
A labiaplasty is cosmetic surgery that’s reduces the size of the inner lips either side of the vaginal opening, called labia minora.
This procedure is often chosen by women who aren’t content with the appearance of their labia, be it their size or shape. It’s also performed for women who experience discomfort of their labia minora when they engage in some activities such as sexual intercourse, walking and cycling.
This day case procedure is carefully undertaken whilst the patient is under local anaesthetic.
Scar revision surgery aims to reduce the appearance of scarring by smoothing out and flattening the scarred skin. This day case procedure is usually carried out under local anaesthetic. Other treatment options to reduce the look of scars include laser therapy and micro dermabrasion. Your cosmetic surgeon will discuss the choice of treatments available and the best options for your individual scarring which is often dependent upon the type and severity of scarring.
Scarring can be caused by a burn, an injury, surgery, acne or chickenpox. A scar that is visible can make you feel self-conscious and a reduction in its appearance may improve your confidence.
