I am very, very pleased with the service and outcome

4.5 50 Blepharoplasty

Following my wife's interest in getting some cosmetic surgery, decided to book a joint appointment. During the appointment a very detailed plan of the best procedures that would meet or needs but that was also obtainable. The level of service was first class and we both decided to book appointments the same day. I have since had a blepharoplasty carried out and I am very, very pleased with the service and outcome. My wife is now booked in for her own procedure and I would recommend anyone thinking of surgery to book in to see James without hesitation.

I'm blown away with the results

5 50 Tummy Tuck, Facelift, Blepharoplasty, Breast Implants

Amazing. I've had several procedures with James from breast augmentation, tummy tuck, blepharoplasty, and recently a small facelift. I'm blown away with the results. I cannot convey enough from booking to procedure how great his team and himself are. I wouldn't trust anyone else.

I can wear open-neck shirts again without embarrassment

5 50 Keratosis Pilaris Treatment

Mr McDiarmid treated me for the removal of four small and 1 large keratosis cysts on my neck and shoulders a couple of weeks ago and I am so pleased.

From the ease of making an appointment, with a very professional receptionist to meeting the surgeon and having my consultation and treatment on the same day was amazing. My post-operative healing was uneventful and I can thoroughly recommend this clinic and the way I was looked after was impeccable.

My thanks to all and especially to my surgeon - I can wear open-neck shirts again without embarrassment!

5 50 Mole Removal

Mr McDiarmid is an excellent plastic surgeon. I had three moles removed from my face and although I was nervous his calm attitude soon allayed my fears.

All the staff are very helpful, the clinic itself is beautifully clean and welcoming. I highly recommend them

my consultation with Mr McDiarmid was very positive

5 50 Plastic Surgeon Consultation

I still have not had my treatment yet due to unforeseen circumstances, but my consultation with Mr McDiarmid was very positive if I had seen him before I would have had the treatment 3 years ago he is the third consultant I have seen but the only one I felt I had and confidence in. I still very much hope to have the treatment in the very near future.

Extremely glad I had this procedure done

4.5 50 Blepharoplasty • Paid: £12000

Upper Blepharoplasticity
Extremely glad I had this procedure done. The skin was beginning to obscure my eyesight. The whole procedure from consultation to completion was less than an hour.

After the first 2 pricks around my eyes I felt nothing. I felt so good that I went shopping after the procedure and in hindsight I would have been better going home to let the newly cut skin start to repair itself. The stiches were taken out after 5 days and to my amazement the skin had knitted together.

I slept sitting up for ten days using paracetamol for about five to help me sleep. Asprin is my drug of choice but I was advised against its use. I did not drive until day 5 as I felt my range of vision was not good enough. I went to work after ten days but did warn colleagues about the black eyes.

It is now 6 weeks since the operation and I'm beginning to like what I see in the mirror. I most certainly would have this procedure again as it was much easier than going to the dentist!

The scars are a little tight but have been improving gradually over the weeks. I have been using Bio oil on them twice a day with the minimum of make up.

James is very profession, experienced and personable and creates a calming atmosphere.

I chose this clinic for the following: location, reviews, and price. I'm 61 years old and this was my first operation and so very nervous.

The receptionist was very welcoming and James chatting confident manner made me feel settled.

Thank you!!

I look forward to putting on eye make-up again after Eyelid Surgery

4.5 50 Eyelid Surgery, Blepharoplasty • Paid: £1200

I would recommend this treatment. I had upper eyelid surgery to remove my 'flappy eyelids'. I got an appointment fairly quickly and decided on having the consultation and treatment on the same day. The procedure was quick, and pain-free (apart from a couple of needles for the local anaesthetic), all in all, it took about 15 minutes. The recovery was quick. I am typing this on day 10, apart from a bit of bruising still, which is only minor, and a couple of small scabs from the stitching, it's all gone well. Every day, the healing process looks good and my unsightly 'flaps' are no more! I will wait a couple more days and then I look forward to putting on eye make-up again. The operation cost me £1,200, which I thought was a fair price, and well worth it.

I chose this clinic because it had good reviews. James Mcdiarmid is a very nice man, who puts you at ease and performed a job well done. The clinic, although small, is clean and welcoming and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Another bonus - free parking!

Would recommend

5 50 Breast Implants • Paid: £2999

Excellent surgeon, cannot recommend him enough. I went to him at the Duchy Hospital in Truro, Cornwall after researching online.
I initially went to a well-known company for a consultation in Bristol which did not fill me with confidence and after seeing Mr Mcdiarmid I knew straight away I had made the right decision. He was so thorough, professional and made me feel at ease. He made an appointment for me to see him at his office in Plymouth also to let me look at the various implants he uses and feel the softness of the silicone/none-silicone implants.
Would 150% go back (in fact I am going to contact his secretary shortly regarding another procedure) and would recommend him to anyone.
