The whole experience was so easy and painless

5 50 Eyelid Surgery • Paid: £1200

My upper eyelid surgery at The McDiarmid-HallClinic, was excellent. Starting with my consultation and my surgery. The whole experience was so easy, and painless. The clinic nurse, made me feel so relaxed, chatting about music and my old skinhead days. James performed the surgery with ease, and made me feel so confident of what my outcome would be. The whole cost from Consultaion £50 to surgery £1200, was worth the money.... All my friends noticed and said it made me look 10 younger

I chose this clinic, because of previous reviews and recommendations. Plus my impressions on my first visit to have my consultation, I knew I was in safe hands. Would totally recommend this clinic and James & all the lovely staff

Satisfying outcome

4.6 50 Open Rhinoplasty, Chin Implant • Paid: £2000

I had Rhinoplasty with a chin implant with James back in Summer 2012 and decided to wait a while before giving a review. With James although the price was not the cheapest but he was very friendly, welcoming and thorough with details in explaining both the procedure and the recovery process. James will not leave the operating room until he is 100% percent certain that he has the most satisfying outcome for his patient. I learnt that paying that bit extra was worthwhile and the nose takes time to heal so do not panic if your nose does not look perfect straight away. I do not think it is possible for someone to be completely 100% with the way they look but judging by my before and after photos 9 months apart there is no difference. I've been told that I look better and I've lost weight! I cannot recommend James enough. In fact I went back to have a lipoma removed. Have that free consultation and decide for yourself. Thanks James.

Best investment I have ever made!

5 50 Breast Implants • Paid: £3500

My treatment was fantastic from beginning to end! I am a different person in body and mind and will recommend this to anyone who was in my position. It was in fact a recommendation from one of my own clients which sent me to look into the procedure myself and I will never look back! Best investment I have ever made! Thank you so much.

Abdominoplasty (medium) and repair to stomach wall

4.5 50 Mini Abdominoplasty • Paid: £7000

Abdominoplasty (medium) and repair to stomach wall

I was recommended Mr McDiarmid by my GP, and whenever I have mentioned his name to other professionals, they have said nothing but good about his work and his approach.
I was quoted a price for my procedure which included everything including follow up. It seems that the procedure was more complicated than had been anticipated, but the price remained the same. I even received a phone call from the hospital a day or so after my discharge to check I was OK..
I thought it all went very well. Of course there was significant discomfort (though very little pain) for 10 days or so afterwards, but now, three months after the op, I am very pleased with the result and amazed at Mr McDiarmid's skill in making judgement about re-shaping a body! I don't think that it has fully sunk in for me yet how different my body is, and the difference this is going to make to my life.
I have now resumed all my previous phsical activities including jogging, power walking and going to the gym.
There have been other benefits I had not anticiapted too, like losing some weight (extra to that lost during the procedure), better posture and less backache.
I really cannot say anything negative about the whole experience.

I felt able to ask anything and felt very safe during my liposuction

5 50 Tummy Tuck, Liposuction • Paid: £6700

As a woman, his personality and confidence, his understanding of what I was going through, his genuinely caring nature, were all so important to me. I wasn't just the next patient in, I was an individual person. I felt able to ask anything and felt very safe. The result is amazing! This is life-changing.

My only regret was not doing it when I had started thinking about it a few years ago. I am better in so many ways, not covering up, hiding; there are clothes I couldn't wear before, dresses, and the most important is;” I can wear bikinis again”.

I was immediately impressed

5 50 Facelift • Paid: £8350

It is with great excitement I can talk about my experience at the Cheltenham Clinic. After so many visits and previous surgeries at other clinics, some up north and others in London and Bristol, I have had a great deal of experience of cosmetic surgery, some good and some totally disastrous. I have had many operations and I have used many hospitals. During my own personal journey of the glamour industry, I had never really found a brilliant surgeon . Until I met James McDiarmid at his clinic in Cheltenham. I was immediately impressed by his manner. I was not rushed at all. He gave me alternatives to think about. I then returned after thinking about things, only to find him even more helpful, taking his time to make sure I was fully informed before I left. Just a short time later I decided to go for it, and was I glad I did! Eventually, after all this time, I had found an artist, a surgeon, who really knows his craft. Desperately important to find an artist if the surgeon is giving you 10 years of your real age or more in my case. If any one is looking to invest their money in cosmetic surgery, I would honestly recommend a visit to The McDiarmid Hall Clinic in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

I am now so happy with the result

5 50 Breast Implants • Paid: £4500


At my consultation James was very friendly, he answered all my questions before I had even asked them, he also noticed straight away that I have "symmastia" which I had never heard of. Also he explained what this was and how it can effect the end result.
I believe James was very honest from the start , I felt it was important what I wanted and he listened to what I had in mind.
I had my procedure approximately 2 months after my consultation which at the time I thought had gone well, I then started to experience some seeping fluid from one of the wounds, this then turned out to be an infection, James and his team at Duchy were nothing less than amazing, I had 2 courses of antibiotics, I went back numerous times for dressings and to be seen (sometimes they saw me with no appointment). I could ring any time with a problem and they were always happy to help.
Unfortunately the implant had to be removed and replaced 4 weeks later.
Again James and the team were faultless, very happy to help and I couldn't have asked for more.
My problems were just one of those things and I was just unlucky but I am so grateful to James for all he has done, and I must add that my problems were in no way a result of anything James or his team did.
I am now so happy with the result, I have so much more confidence and all I can say is thank you!

Love it!

5 50 Open Rhinoplasty • Paid: £3600

Dr McDiarmid is a talented artist with genuine compassion for his patients. Result: LOVE IT! Experience: First consultation with Dr McDiarmid - Great Dr McDiarmid was very welcoming. I felt very relaxed and able to chat. I did not feel rushed and I felt that I was taken seriously. I was given a very honest view of my nose was interesting to be told that my nose was not as bad as I thought it was! I loved drawing my nose on the computer and being able to see what it could actually look like. Super first impression. I left feeling very confident. Experience: Pre Surgery - Check in good; room was super clean with Molten Brown products (!!) - All staff were super charming and helpful; Dr McDiarmid and the anaesthetist chap came to see me before the op. I felt listened to and important. - There was some daft stuff with having to sign forms which I found irritating and futile as the forms were inaccurate, think this is an area for the team to work on. Experience: Post Operation - I was so well cared for I felt very poorly after coming out of the GA and I could not have had more care and attention from the nursing team. Experience: Post Check Out - Not so great a bit haphazard def an area for the Wingfield to up their game in - I left on a Wednesday morning and the hospital gave me a follow up call on the Monday to see how I was which seemed daft when I was going back the following day to have my stitches taken out - The nurse was bad at taking my stitches out she left some in and snapped some which was alarming. Result: Love my nose; I can look in the mirror

The confidence he has helped to give me, I can honestly say, is amazing.
I would most definitely recommend James McDiarmids magic hands!

I feel like I have been reborn

5 50 Full Abdominoplasty, Breast Lift

Full Abdominoplasty and Mastopexy

Incredibly pleased with the results!! ~ I never thought that after 3 c-sections and 5 pregnancies my tummy would ever look the same again. James and his skilled hands have transformed my body beyond recognition. I am now looking forward to engaging in all the sports activities I couldn't do whilst my tummy was so wobbly and sagging. I feel like I have been reborn, and unlike 'Youth being wasted on the young'.. I feel like a teenager again with adult wisdom and a body like never before!

I was made to feel at ease

5 50 Mini Abdominoplasty • Paid: £3800

I want to commend James McDiarmid and his staff for making my whole experience simple and a pleasure from start to finish. Nobody undergoes surgery lightly, especially when it is cosmetic. From my first consultation for a mini tummy tuck, I was made to feel at ease in a professional and friendly environment and the lead up and preparation was seamless with consistent communication. The operation has been a great success and the results have been fantastic and better than I hoped for. I cannot rate James and his team highly enough, you come away feeling you have been treated as an individual and not just a number. Would defiantly recommend and will be back myself. Thank you :)

I am so pleased with the results

5 50 Breast Implants • Paid: £4595

Just like to say a massive thank you to Dr McDiarmid for the completion of my breast augmentation on the 19th July 2012. I am so pleased with the results. It's not even been 3 weeks since my op and they have healed very well. With the tiniest of scars. Everybody looked after me so well and made me feel so comfortable from day one of having my consultation to the end of the surgery. I still have another appointment to attend to see Dr McDiarmid in which I think is in a few months to ensure that they look right. I'm looking forward to seeing the before and after shots. It has given me so much confidence and will help me in my body building career massively thank you James :)
