British Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Industry

Opinions about the size of the UK cosmetic surgery market vary, ranging from £536m in 2008 (*) just for surgical procedures, to £588m in 2009 (**) for surgical and non surgical procedures together. The Guardian even reported the figure as approaching £1bn in 2008 (***) and quotes figures from Mintel saying that 105,000 surgical procedures were carried out in 2007 with a value of £604m, compared to the £302m spent on 472,000 non surgical procedures in the same year. This means that the average cost of a surgical procedure in 2007 was £5,750.

Two associations in the UK represent plastic surgeons. They are the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS). They represent 252 and 290 members respectively according to their membership lists on their websites. In 2009 BAAPS members performed 36,482 procedures, a 6.7% increase on the 2008 figure. This means that the average BAAPS member performs 145 procedures per year with a billable value of £833,750 (based on the 2007 average procedure value).

A Guide to Plastic Surgery Regulations in the United Kingdom

The Department of Health decides on health policy and oversees the National Health Serice in the UK.

The General Medical Council (GMC) is the self-regulating body for doctors within the UK. It holds a register of all doctors registered to practice within the UK. The GMC provides detailed information online about the current status of all registered doctors. Compensation claims will rest on proof that a failure in the 'Duty to Care' has resulted in injury - these claims are persued throught the civil courts.

The British Medical Association is the chief professional organization for doctors in the UK.

BAPRAS, the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons is the main organization that plastic surgeons will belong to.

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons represents plastic surgeons who specialise in cosmetic surgery and all its members are on the Specialist Register of Plastic Surgery.

Education

The UK has 32 medical schools spread over a number of administrative regions. Training is usually 5 or 6 years in length though 4 year graduate programmes have become available. The difference in training periods generally applies to theoretical work with set minimums in place for clinical study.

Doctors are ethically responsible for keeping their training up to date through Continuing Professional Development (CPD). All professional associations promote continuing education and organize training. CPD is not mandatory though failure to engage may result in a doctors ability to maintain their 'Duty to Care' coming into question.

Complaints

The GMC will deal with complaints against doctors but its powers only enable it to limit or remove the right to practice: It does not issue fines or grant compensation. The GMC strikes off about 30 doctors each year.

Other complaints should go first to one of the local healthcare authorites.

There is also a health ombudsman (one for each of England, Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland), independant of the profession.

Storage and Access to Medical Records

The UK has a data protection act. This both protects data and covers the right of an individual to access data held on them - including medical data. Furthermore medical data requested by an individual must be presented in an intelligible manner and within a maximun of 40 days from a formal request being made.

Our consultation fee of £150 is fully redeemable against any surgery fee should you go ahead at a later date. We require 24 hours notice for cancellation, any missed consultation appointments would be charged in full to the patient.
Rhinoplasty From £4200
Rhinoplasty surgery or Nose Job helps to improve the nasal aesthetics and function. Perfection in rhinoplasty surgery is not realistic as the thickness and texture of your skin, the strength, shape and symmetry of the nasal bones and cartilages, healing power of your body following surgery and the skill of the surgeon all have an impact on the outcome.   The results refine over 9 - 12 months following surgery and continued changes in the shape of the nose occur with time. Surgery is usually performed under general anaesthetic.  Cuts are made only inside (in endonasal rhinoplasty) or inside and outside (open rhinoplasty).  The nose and the skin are lifted off the bone and cartilage underneath.   A hairline fracture may be made in the nasal bones to allow the change in the shape of the nose.  Small pieces of bone and cartilage may be removed from or even added to the nose to smooth out any bumps or dips.   Finally, all cuts are stitched in place.   A small dressing is inserted inside the nose.  This is removed the next day and a temporary splint on the outside of the nose is used for 10 days.  Minor discomfort, blocked nose, discharge of blood stained mucous, nasal crusting, bruising and swelling around the nose and eyes for 1 to 2 weeks is common.  It may take up to 3 months for breathing to be clear again.  Sun exposure during the first 6 months after surgery can result in skin redness and should be avoided. Numbness and rigidity of the nasal tip are common after surgery but this settles within 6 - 12 months. Most people need 1 - 2 weeks off work, especially but 6 weeks if you play any sport.   
Facelift From £5400
Rhytidectomy, or facelift surgery as it is commonly called, is a procedure which is performed for a wide variety of reasons, namely treating jowl formation, distorting jaw line, double chin folds, wrinkling and removal of excess skin. This surgery often can be complex and should be performed by surgeons who have specific expertise in facelift surgery. Incision vary depending on the individual patient as well as the desired outcome. Generally, incisions are made starting at the temple, moving around the ear and are hidden behind the ear and in the hair.   Cuts are placed to follow the natural skin creases.  Following lifting of the skin, the underlying muscle and tissues are tightened and secured; excess skin is trimmed and the incision is closed with fine stitches and/or clips.  In some cases, a drainage tube may be inserted. Immediately after surgery, some mild pain and discomfort is common.   The dressing and drainage tube are both removed the next day before discharge from hospital. During recovery period, it is recommended to have the head elevated when lying down. Usually, stitches and staples are removed within 5 to 10 days following surgery. Recovery tends to take 2 to 3 weeks before normal activity may be resumed.  Scars become less noticeable and disguised with time but total healing may take up to 18 months.  Complications are infrequent but include bleeding, infection, unfavourable scarring, nerve damage and minor cosmetic irregularities.

Drs Van den Berge and Vermeulen

Rating from 1 Review I feel like me again, a younger meDoris, Gibraltar, 12 Aug 16

I had a full MACS facelift , i always knew i would have a facelift when i reached my 50's, as my face age did not reflect my inner age, after many years of reviewing surgeons and having consultations with several, i knew Dr Vermeulen was the right surgeon for me very shortly after meeting him, Dr Vermeulen is very approachable and honest in his consultation. he and his team have certainly exceeded my expectations in what i was hoping to achieve, i feel like me again, a younger me I chose this clinic because it was just so professional and efficient, yet very reassuring at the same time, i felt at ease the moment i walked in to the clinic, and since my surgery my option has only increased. it is professional without being pretentious or overwhelming. the staff are attentive and supportive, but also kind and caring

Lisa Sacks

0117 325 1662 Bristol Nuffield Hospital at the Chesterfield, 3 Clifton Hill, Bristol, BS8 1BN
Rating from 58 Reviews Obviously highly skilled and very experienced in her fieldGlenda, UK, 14 Dec 16

I had suffered from recurring back pain for many years and more recently been diagnosed with an unidentified neurological condition which I was told I would have to live with. I was recommended to Lisa for breast reduction surgery by a family member who had the same operation 13 years ago. From the first consultation, my husband and I were struck by the friendly and reassuring atmosphere that Lisa created. She was obviously highly skilled and very experienced in her field. Lisa offered a possible reason for some of the symptoms and believed she could help. There was no hint of pressure to opt for surgery. He (my husband) says he was so convinced that he almost asked Lisa to do a job lot and include him in the operation. I opted to go ahead and 14 weeks ago the procedure went without a hitch. From that day forward I can honestly say that I have felt like a new woman. Further, I have had no recurrence of the back pain or any of the other symptoms I suffered previously. I believe that Lisa Sacks genuinely cares and takes pride in her patients and the results she achieves with them. She makes you feel that you, as the patient, are important. I have been delighted with the whole experience and would not hesitate to recommend her as a surgeon, as I already have. I chose the Chesterfield clinic purely because of the presence of Lisa Sacks. My stay in the clinic was very pleasant.

Rating from 7 Reviews Extremely happyBrenda, UK, 27 Feb 14

Breast revision I'm extremely happy with the treatment. Mr Ross is one of the most honest straight forwarding Dr's I have met, he is a perfectionist. He took the time to explain all the options that were open to me & explain each one thoroughly. It took several meetings with in depth examinations & discussions before a date was set for the operation. Having gone through it twice before with major problems both physically & emotionally Mr Ross certainly put my mind at ease. He is without a doubt one of the best Surgeons in the UK & I would definitely recommend him.

Rating from 1 Review He was extremely helpful and caringEmily, UK, 07 Jun 16

I recently had a breast augmentation; lift and implant with Anthony Barabas. I can honestly say it's changed my life. He was extremely helpful and caring. A perfectionist from the start to finish, which were welcome qualities having met some quite rude surgeons previously. I am so impressed with the result. At present I am still waiting for the scars to fade, but the recovery and look of my new breasts have been amazing. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Rating from 4 Reviews Surprisingly pleasant experienceKiran, UK, 23 Oct 15

I had my procedure today at the clinic. The surgeon was very professional yet friendly. I felt very comfortable and not pressured to go ahead. I was made to feel very comfortable throughout the procedure with the surgeon and the lovely nurse on hand to distract me while under local. I didn't feel any pain so very happy with the results so far. I am due to go back next week for a check up and change of dressing which is all part of the service. Will go back again in 6 weeks for a final check up. The surgeon really seemed to care and nothing was too much even offered to see me anytime if I had any concerns. Overall very pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend this surgeon and his team. Made me feel so welcome and comfortable as well very professional and informative. I was offered a free consultation and was able to get my procedure done the same day which was great! The whole experience was excellent the whole team are so lovely didn't even feel like I was going there for an operation. Clinic is also in a great location with its own parking and was very stylish, didn't feel like a surgery. Overall a surprisingly pleasant experience.

Brian Musgrove

Rating from 1 Review AmazingAlicia, Wrexham, 28 May 15

It's been almost twelve months now after surgery and I'm really happy with the results. I had a tracheal shave as my Adam's apple was pretty prominent and as a male to female transexual it was effecting my confidence. The operation its self was pretty straight forward and no complications, all done on the same day. The swelling after the operation looked pretty bad but in fairness with an ice pack it went down pretty quickly. Just looked a little unsightly for a while with the stitches but no problems otherwise. Although £2500 is a lot of money in this case it was well worth it and I'd definitely recommend Mr Musgrove to anyone considering this surgery for themselves. The clinic I went to was Spire chain in the UK for reconstructive surgery. The one I had the operation at was in Macclesfield and it mas amazing. The staff were extremely polite and courteous and the hospital was immaculate.
