Deciding to undergo plastic surgery is a big decision and not one that should be made lightly. Doing research into not only the surgery but also the surgeon performing the surgery is vital. Furthermore, you should make sure you understand what the surgery involves, what the stages and length of recovery are and what the potential risks and complications of the surgery are.

It can be quite overwhelming and the information online can be conflicting and confusing. So, to help relieve the stress and anxiety of this decision, we aim to provide all potential patients with accurate, clear and up-to-date information.

With that in mind, below we have collated our patient information and some resources we believe useful. These will enable you to find out more about the plastic surgery procedure you are considering.
