Some conditions are not suitable for a non-surgical approach and therefore surgery may be considered.

However, please be rest assured that if surgery is required, you will have the benefit of a fully-trained, accredited Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Mr Paul Banwell.

As an example, a surgical approach may be required for the removal of small skin lesions such as cysts, moles and skin cancers. In such cases these minor operations are performed with you being awake (local anaesthetic) with minimal discomfort and bruising. However, this is performed at the expense of small scars which will take time to settle.

For bigger procedures such as Coleman fat transfer, liposuction and facelifts, you will need a general anaesthetic (asleep) and will often stay in hospital for a night or two. Mr Banwell will brief you fully on what is involved and the possible downsides of the surgery.

If you are contemplating surgery please do phone the office on 0845 2600 261 to discuss you wishes further or email
