Plastic surgery

Cosmetic and reconstructive procedures

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

Overview

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 facelifts 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.

Our facilities

We offer an extensive range of both cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery procedures at a number of our facilities.

Breast reduction is a straightforward operation to remove breast tissue to decrease breast size....

    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.

    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.
