Cosmetic surgery treatments have become more accessible to a wider range of the population over the past few years. Improved technology, the spread of new, less invasive techniques, more affordable treatments and more accessible information has helped with the surge in popularity of cosmetic surgery over the past ten years.
Attitudes have also changed, with many people finding that their aesthetic appearance greatly affects their confidence: when they are with their appearance, it can positively affect other areas of their lives. A survey from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) found that men are increasingly having cosmetic surgery to remain competitive in the marketplace and that women openly declare and pursue a younger appearance.
Improved technology and surgical techniques have made a difference in the types of procedures available. New tools and products are entering the market which offer improved results. These advancements increase the attractiveness of having a procedure. Procedures as simpler, less expensive, have less downtime and less scarring than was previously the case.
At Skin Medical, we offer a range of cosmetic surgery treatments including nose and ear correction surgery and facial and body liposelection using vaser technology. We also offer medical surgery in stop snoring surgery and varicose vein removal.
All of these procedures are carried out under local anaesthetic and patients will only be required to be in the clinic for a maximum of four hours. All of the cosmetic surgeries that we offer are minimally invasive and offer quick recovery times and are also less expensive than other types of cosmetic surgery which require general anaesthetic.
Consultations are with medical staff, either nurse practitioners or surgeons, rather than with sales people. Patients will discuss their medical history, expectations, and are then physically assessed by the practitioner. They will be given information verbally as well as having written information to take away.
All of our surgeons are registered on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council (GMC) and who are also currently employed in the NHS. Full CVs of surgeons are available from the clinic upon request.
