Plastic, reconstructive & cosmetic surgery in Blackburn

Surgery to restore function and improve appearance

Any physical changes, whether they be from birth, through ageing, or as a result of an accident or trauma, can have a significant effect on your self-esteem, your confidence, and your overall satisfaction in life.

With medical advancements in plastics, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery, your options are far from limited.

At The Beardwood, our expertise lies in finding you the best solutions, restoring normalcy, and helping you look and feel well again.

Plastic and reconstructive surgery focuses on repairing damaged tissue to improve either function or appearance of the tissue. It is a very broad speciality, dealing with various aspects from skin cancer to post-cancer reconstruction (such as breast reconstruction), as well as other injuries.

The tissue damage may have been caused by burns, physical trauma, disease, or from a birth defect/disorder.

Encompassing cosmetic surgery as well, the field broadens even further, with consultants seeing patients who wish to improve an aspect of their appearance, either with surgical or non-surgical treatments.

Much like the rest of our Beardwood peers, we work collaboratively to support and complement other specialities; especially with our colleagues in Dermatology and Breast Surgery. In some cases, our teams combine for specific reconstructions, such as a breast removal surgery, where expertise in each field is of the utmost importance.

In terms of Plastic and Cosmetic surgery at The Beardwood, we cover the whole spectrum, including:

  • Facial surgery
  • Face lift
  • Body contouring
  • Liposuction
  • Abdominoplasty (‘Tummy tuck’)
  • Breast surgery (breast augmentation and breast reduction)
  • Developmental changes in breast symmetry
  • Male breast surgery for Gynecomastia (‘Man boobs’)

Each of these procedures are available at Beardwood and are performed to a very high standard, as evidenced in our patient satisfaction results.

All work carried out at The Beardwood is supported by a senior nurse who looks after all our patients personally while they recuperate from their operation. Alongside a caring and supportive nursing team in the operating theatre and on the wards, you’ll be kept as comfortable as possible during your stay, with continuous high-quality care provided at every stage to make your experience with us the best it possibly can be.

As well as surgical procedures, there are an extensive array of non-surgical and non-invasive treatments available at Beardwood, such as:

  • Wrinkle reduction treatments including Toxins
  • Dermal fillers
  • Fat transfer

Your initial consultation with us typically lasts between 30 and 45 minutes, depending on your needs. This is your chance to express what you want, and in return our consultants can give you all the relevant information for you to make an informed decision.

By the end of the consultation, you will know the full benefits of any surgical and non-surgical options as well as expected outcomes, based on your condition and medical history.

This is a two-way discussion; for your consultant to listen and understand your needs and to advise you on the best options to get the results you desire.

Typically, you will see your consultant at least twice before any cosmetic surgery, usually with a minimum of two weeks in between, ensuring no patient is ever rushed into a procedure and has had time to consider all the options. Any cosmetic surgery enquiry is professionally dealt with and professionally maintained throughout service.

As part of this professionally maintained service, the consultant you see for your initial consultation will be with you for the entirety of your treatment. This means you won’t have to deal with an intermediary, with one consultant overseeing your treatment plan from start to finish, further putting you at ease during your time at The Beardwood.

Unlike other specialities, imaging or diagnostic scans are rarely needed before cosmetic surgery, but The Beardwood has extensive resources in this area on-site if needed, such as ultrasound, CT scan, MRI or X-ray, ensuring that patients are always well-supported by imaging facilities. This may be applicable if you have had surgery in the past; for example, if you have had breast implants and are experiencing problems, a scan be carried out to assess the extent of the damage before further treatment is administered.

The initial consultation is also vital when planning any plastic or reconstructive surgery, as it helps set expectations for what is achievable through surgery. Reconstructive surgery is usually focused on aesthetic improvements, restoring normal function, or a combination of the two, and this can be outlined during your consultation based on your own personal needs. Certain scans may help determine the expected outcome of surgery, and these can be arranged promptly if necessary.

Whether this is your first time seeing us, or you have seen our colleagues in Dermatology or Oncology, the service provided is always consultant led and consultant delivered, with continuous high-quality care throughout.
