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 are the potential risks and complications of the surgery with the help of patient information resources.

It can be quite overwhelming and the information online can be conflicting and confusing. So, to help relieve the stress and anxiety of this life-changing 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 you will find useful. These will enable you to find out more about the plastic surgery procedure you are considering.

Furthermore, there are guides and articles on everything you need to know before your surgery, including, but not limited to;

  • Consults and what they include.
  • Both pre and post-op journey. Things to expect both before and after your surgery.
  • Recovery after surgery, including some tips to ensure you recover as quickly and painlessly as possible.
  • As well as, a link to free guides to plastic surgery procedures performed by Dr Briggs.
