Surgery to restore function and improve appearance
If you are unhappy with these physical changes, there are a few different things you may try. Diet and exercise can often help, but there is a limit to what can be achieved with these options. Alternatively, you may try to cover up the problem with clothing and make-up, but these also have their limits.
Over time, if you continue to be unhappy with unwanted physical changes you may find that your self-esteem and confidence is affected, sometimes significantly.
Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic surgery procedures can help restore, improve and enhance appearance. Depending on the focus of their work, a doctor who specialises in this field may be known as either a Consultant Plastic Surgeon, a Consultant Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon or a Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon.
Cosmetic surgery uses surgical and non-surgical treatments to improve or enhance a particular aspect of your natural appearance. Common examples include breast augmentation (enlargement) and a tummy tuck.
The reconstructive branch of Plastic Surgery is carried out to improve the appearance and/or function in tissue that has been damaged by a congenital defect, trauma, disease or burns. A common example is removal of skin cancer.
At The Highfield Hospital, our highly experienced Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons would be delighted to meet with you to discuss the options available to you for your particular requirements.
It is important to know that surgery is not always the most appropriate choice for everybody, but, when you meet with one of our consultants, they will be able to give you a realistic view of what can be achieved through surgery and the results you could see, so that you have the information to make an informed choice.
Our consultants provide a range of treatments, including:
As well as these surgical options, we can also provide non-surgical and non-invasive treatments like:
Many people self-refer while others are referred to us by their GP or a consultant in another speciality, like Dermatology.
In a comfortable, relaxed and unhurried environment, you will be able to talk openly with your consultant about your concerns and what you are hoping to achieve with surgery.
They will be able to explain treatment options to you, discussing how they are done and what the recovery will be like. It can sometimes be difficult to picture what surgery can achieve, so you may be able to see pre- and post-op photos of people who have previously had a similar procedure.
It is important to be realistic about what can and cannot be achieved with surgery, and your consultant will be able to help clarify this during your consultation.
Before deciding to go ahead with any surgery, it is important you have plenty of time to consider all the options available to you. For this reason, we can arrange a second appointment for you. At this second appointment, your consultant will talk with you again about the procedure, explaining the results you should realistically see as well as any risks of potential complications you need to be aware of.
For your peace of mind, you will always see the same consultant when you visit, and they will be the person who carries out your surgery. You will never be seen by a junior doctor. This ensures excellent continuity of care at every stage of your treatment and makes it very easy to contact the right person with any questions or concerns.
Most people who visit us for Plastic or Cosmetic surgery will not require any imaging or diagnostic scans before surgery. If they are needed however, we can arrange quick and easy access to on-site X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound for you.
Whether you are looking for minor skin surgery or a larger procedure such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck or labiaplasty, our experienced surgeons would be delighted to meet with you and give you their expert opinion on the surgical procedures that would be most appropriate for you and your desired outcomes.
For peace of mind and known expert care, why not contact us today to book your Plastic and Cosmetic surgery appointment online? We look forward to welcoming you to The Highfield Hospital and helping you to get clarity about the best way forward as soon as possible.
