Cosmetic and reconstructive procedures

Procedures to reconstruct and improve the appearance of a certain part of the body or to restore function that may have been lost after illness or an accident

What is plastic surgery?

Plastic surgery is the medical specialty dedicated to improving or restoring the appearance and/or function of a part of the body. It's made up of two areas: cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery.

  • Cosmetic procedures are carried out for aesthetic reasons and include things like face lifts and nose reshaping.
  • Reconstructive surgery is usually carried out after a serious injury, cancer treatment or if a child is born with a cleft palate, genetic disorder or an abnormality in their skull.

No matter what type of plastic surgery you have or why, when you're one of our patients you'll be treated by some of the most talented plastic surgeons around. They take their time to understand your motivations and talk to you about what to expect. They use the most up-to-date technology and minimally invasive surgical techniques to keep scarring to a minimum and achieve natural results.


Using the most sophisticated techniques, our highly skilled plastic surgeons carry out a range of plastic surgery procedures.

  • Breast enlargement

    Need to know

    Breast enlargement is a common type of cosmetic surgery where silicone or saline implants are inserted to increase breast size, make them more even or change their shape. The implants are placed either between the breast tissue and chest muscle, or behind the muscle.

  • Breast reduction

    Need to know

    If you feel your breasts are too big, it can be difficult to live with and affect your confidence. It can limit the clothes you can wear and the sports you do, along with causing shoulder and back pain. Breast reduction is a straightforward operation to remove breast tissue to decrease breast size....

  • Nose reshaping

    Need to know

    If you're unhappy with your nose - whether it's for cosmetic reasons or you've been injured - nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) could help. This surgical procedure can enhance, reduce or refine the shape and size of your nose so you feel more confident. It may also help with breathing problems.

  • Reconstructive microsurgery

    Need to know

    Microsurgery is a specialised surgical discipline involving the use of microscope magnification to perform intricate operations. Microsurgical procedures range from reattaching a finger to transplanting bone or muscle to restoring facial features or reconstructing breast tissue following a mastectomy.

  • Excision of skin lesions

    Need to know

    Common skin lesions include moles, freckles, birthmarks, cysts, warts and skin tags. Although they're usually harmless (benign), you may have a lesion removed for cosmetic reasons or as a precaution against skin cancer. You may also have a skin lesion removed to diagnose or treat skin cancer.

  • Craniofacial surgery

    Need to know

    Craniofacial reconstruction surgery can improve or correct a range of deformities of the skull as well as damage caused by trauma to the head or face.
