Surgery to improve appearance
Whether you are male or female, we offer a range of Plastic and Cosmetic surgery procedures. Plastic Surgery can help improve the effects of ageing, weight loss or other life events such as pregnancy and childbirth.
Diet and exercise can help transform your body but are often limited with what they can achieve. Physical changes may be present from birth or occur as the result of ageing or injury. Wearing make-up or certain types of clothing can help hide the problem in the short-term. However, over time, our self-esteem, confidence and enjoyment of life can all be affected.
Whether you are looking for minor skin surgery or a major procedure, such as breast reduction, tummy tuck or labiaplasty, our experienced Plastic Surgeons can give you their expert opinion on which surgical procedures would provide you with the best outcome and meet your expectations. Our consultants have a warm, friendly and empathic nature to make you feel at ease, enabling you to freely share your personal concerns regarding your body.
Our Plastic Surgeons are fully UK trained, highly experienced and professional. They are all on the UK's General Medical Council (GMC) Specialist Register and are full members of BAPRAS, the UK's main regulatory body for Plastic Surgery.
There are a number of Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery procedures available for different parts of the body. The most common Plastic Surgery procedures we carry out here at The Shirley Oaks Hospital in Surrey include:
Although benign, skin moles can cause discomfort or even bleed when they catch on clothes or jewellery, when brushing hair or shaving. The area may be growing in size or changing in appearance, or you may feel unhappy and self-conscious about its appearance.
At The Shirley Oaks Hospital in Surrey, in most cases, if you wish, we can offer removal (under local anaesthetic) straight after the consultation, so the process is more efficient and convenient for you.
The skin procedures we commonly perform include:
Problems with the appearance of breasts can be noticed either soon after puberty or later on in life, following weight loss, or during or after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
You may be unhappy with the size, shape and asymmetry of your breasts and as a result, feel self-conscious and lacking confidence when it comes to your body. This can affect your relationship with your partner or your confidence to meet a new partner. You may also be restricted in the type of clothes you wear or the activities you feel comfortable doing.
A variety of cosmetic breast procedures are available to help you achieve your desired breast shape and size:
Changes to the body are common, particularly with ageing, after pregnancy and childbirth and after weight loss. Different parts of the body may start to sag, droop and change shape and there may be excess skin and tissue. You might find it difficult do certain activities or to wear the clothes that you wish. This can have a negative impact on your quality of life and self-confidence.
The following procedures can help to remove any excess skin / tissue, tighten and improve the contour of that area:
After major weight loss, you can end up with an excess of overhanging skin over the arms, thighs and abdomen. You may also be unhappy with the shape of your breasts or buttocks. These changes to your body can be unsightly, restricting the clothes that you’re able to wear and the activities you can do. This will inevitably have a negative impact on your quality of life and self-confidence. A Plastic Surgeon can remove this excess skin to improve your appearance, boost your confidence and help you to regain your life.
For the eyes and ears, our consultants commonly undertake:
Your Surgeon will discuss the procedure with you and make sure you have all the relevant information you need to make an informed decision. You will be provided with information sheets on the procedures offered to you and shown pre- and post-op photos of patients who have previously had the same procedure so that you have a good idea of the likely outcome.
Before proceeding with surgery, you will be offered a second consultation with your Plastic Surgeon to discuss any further queries or concerns so that you are fully informed. You will be given time to consider the potential risks and benefits of your procedure.
