Anti-wrinkle

asked questions

When you’re deciding whether to have treatment, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our customers most frequently ask.

Our anti-wrinkle treatments use a natural purified protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause lines to form over time. When injected into a muscle, it temporarily blocks the chemical signals that make the muscle contract. Only minute quantities are injected and only the injected muscle is affected. It works by temporarily reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause permanent lines, to create a smoother appearance.

Anti-wrinkle injections are used to treat facial lines caused primarily by facial muscles. These are often the creases that occur between the eyebrows, crow’s feet wrinkles and forehead lines. The appearance of these lines can be dramatically softened with the use of anti-wrinkle treatments. They can also be used in the treatment of excessive sweating, where it is injected into the underarm to stop problem perspiration.

Anti-wrinkle injections take just a few minutes. You’ll see an improvement in the appearance of your skin within days and the results can last up to 3-5 months. In your consultation, your aesthetician will assess your muscle movement by asking you to frown or smile. This will determine the precise injection site to achieve the best results for you. The anti-wrinkle treatment is then administered by several tiny injections. No anaesthetic is required and you can return to work or normal activities immediately.

Anti-wrinkle injections have an excellent safety record and have been actively used for over ten years in tens of thousands of patients worldwide. It has US FDA and European approval (including France and Switzerland). It is also now called VISTABEL.

Usually on day two, although it will take up to 14 days for the full results to be visible.

Anti-wrinkle injections last for approximately 3-6 months.

To complement your treatment, you may also consider the use of dermal fillers, which add plumpness to laughter lines, smile lines, crow’s feet or deep creases. You may also consider a surgical approach to anti-ageing such as a facelift or brow lift.

Anti-wrinkle injections work by relaxing the tiny dynamic muscles that cause frown lines. Dermal fillers smooth away that deep facial lines you can see when your face is still and those that have lost volume through sun damage, smoking, and ageing.

During the treatment itself, most patients feel a tingling sensation intermittently throughout the treatment, which is generally well tolerated. The procedure uses a hyperthermic laser, which penetrates fat tissue and heats it to between 42°- 47°C. Whilst Contact Cooling™ technology keeps you comfortable during treatment.*

Treated fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and therefore will not regenerate. This allows patients to start seeing results as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the body begins to remove the broken down fat cells, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks. Results can be maximised by ensuring you keep to a healthy lifestyle, this will only assist in achieving the body shape and contour you desire.*

Therefore, this treatment provides a quick recovery in comparison to a surgical procedures.*

The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remains constant throughout our adult life. After the SculpSure treatment, the destroyed fat cells will not return. However, as we lose weight, the size of fat cells becomes smaller, but typically do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people can have difficulty losing weight in these problem areas.*

The ideal SculpSure candidate is someone with a BMI of less than 30, with areas of fat that seem to be resistant to diet and exercise. Stubborn areas of fat may include the tummy, thighs, back and upper arms.*

When you’re deciding whether to have treatment, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our customers most frequently ask.

The principle of skin needling takes advantage of the body’s natural response to damage or injury, which is to repair itself by regenerating the collagen and elastin fibres. The Dermaroller triggers the self-repair mechanism through hundreds of tiny pin pricks to boost collagen growth.

Following your treatment, your skin may appear red or flushed, which will fade within a few hours. The Dermaroller may leave a few small marks at the most and may leave none, as the needles are extremely fine.

It is possible to have one Dermaroller treatment with noticeable results, however results can vary from person to person. For optimum results, we recommend a course of 3 sessions, 6 weeks apart.

Skin needling requires no injections. It is minimally invasive, side effects are unlikely, and the instrument used is 100% sterile.

Yes, Dermaroller works well in combination with other aesthetic treatments such as fillers or anti-wrinkle treatment. Your practitioner can recommend the best combination of treatments for your skin type and personal requirements.

Depending on the area to be treated and the needle size used, a topical anaesthetic cream may be used, if required. The Dermaroller is a very simple appliance, consisting of a cylindrical barrel with titanium ultra-fine microneedles. The needles are engineered from pure titanium, which reduces the irritation while penetrating the skin. When rollered over the skin, the tiny needles penetrate the top layers of skin creating microscopic punctures. This facilitates high absorption of specialist serums and creams, so that they are effective deep within the dermis, and stimulates the skin’s self-repair and regeneration, inducing collagen production.

All THG clinics are equipped to the highest standards of clinical care and customer comfort and we’ll be here to help you recuperate quickly. For Dermarollers treatment, you’ll be able to leave our clinic as soon as the procedure is completed.

Fillers frequently
asked questions

 

Book your consultation now

When you’re deciding whether to have treatment, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our customers most frequently ask.

The range of fillers we use is suitable for all skin types and requires no pre-treatment skin test. It’s a non-animal, naturally based product, highly purified and biodegradable, and available in a choice of strengths to suit the area being treated. An in-built local anaesthetic offers a less painful experience so there’s no need to use anaesthetic creams. It provides immediate, visible results that last 9-12 months.

The treatment session takes up to half an hour. The injection process itself is 15-20 minutes. You will see the benefit soon after the treatment. The results can last around 6-9 months, sometimes up to a year depending on the individual. With repeated treatments over time, the benefit of fillers can build up so that the effects last longer.

Dermal fillers are designed to mimic the hydrating and lifting effect of your skin’s natural hyaluronic acid, which keeps the skin hydrated and elastic. It fills in and smooths away facial lines and lost volume – this means the static facial lines you can see when your face is still. Wrinkle-relaxing treatments work by relaxing the tiny dynamic muscles that cause frown lines, smoothing out wrinkles for four months or longer.

Injections can cause discomfort even when a very fine needle is used, as is the case with fillers. However, the addition of local anaesthetic improves the overall experience.

Results generally begin to become visible soon after your treatment. After the first fillers treatment, you should start to notice the softening of facial lines, wrinkles and scars as well as an improvement in lines around the mouth. Some swelling and reddening may appear, which usually fades quite quickly. Modern fillers are soft, safe and non-permanent, lasting for around 6-9 months.

We offer a variety of non-surgical treatments, including wrinkle treatments and skin peels, which can be used to complement dermal fillers. One of our aestheticians will discuss your requirements with you and recommend a treatment plan to achieve the best results.

Lines around the eyes (crow’s feet) and forehead lines can be treated, as can the lines around the nose and mouth. Besides filling lines, fillers can also be used to add fullness to lips to enhance a smile or create a subtle pout. They can also be used on the cheeks to add definition and softness to the cheekbones.

Laser hair
removal

questions

When you’re deciding whether to have treatment, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our customers most frequently ask.

Shaving, waxing and depilatory creams are all temporary methods of hair removal, which must be repeated on a frequently. Laser hair removal offers a more permanent method hair reduction. It is also much faster than electrolysis, as the laser can cover a large area and works in far fewer treatments. All skin types will require a patch test to assess suitability. It can be difficult to treat light, red or grey hair, and tanned skin (including fake tan) cannot be treated.

When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. However, this is generally quite minimal. A patch test will enable you to feel what the treatment will be like before undertaking a course.

Most areas require 3-6 treatments. However, the number of treatments required does vary depending on factors such as hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Not all hairs grow actively at the same time. Laser hair removal treatments work by disabling the hair that is in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.

Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear slightly red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment, you may experience what appears to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not re-growing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave if necessary.

Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. You will have a patch test prior to any treatment.

By gently heating the upper dermis below your skin’s surface, the laser is designed to stimulate collagen production. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.

Before the laser treatment, you’ll need to remove your make-up or moisturisers and, in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated. Your practitioner will help you with the pre-treatment requirements.

The treatment results are often subtle. Every patient’s condition and needs varies. For more information about your expected results and the number of treatments you may need, please arrange a free consultation.

Most patients report few, if any, side effects. However, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment.

Over the course of treatments, laser therapy can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by ageing, sun damage or scarring. The treatment is designed to reduce the size of large pores, diminish minor blemishes and provide you with a healthier looking complexion.

You’ll experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface as the laser hand piece is moved back and forth about half an inch above your skin. You can immediately return to normal activities after treatment, but you are advised to use sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.

When you’re deciding whether to have treatment, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our customers most frequently ask.

PDO thread lift treatment can be suitable for men and women who have sagging around their cheeks, jawline and neck. It is a minimally invasive procedure, so it is often a good option for customers who are not ready for traditional face lift surgery.

The PDO thread lift treatment usually takes less than one hour under local anaesthetic, but this is dependent on the number of threads required.

No, you’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as the treatment is completed.

From a small entry point close to the ear, fine threads are inserted along the contours of the face in the areas that you have discussed with your practitioner. The threads create a subtle lifting effect and can encourage collagen production. The effects typically last 12-18 months and the threads will dissolve naturally over time.

Skin peels
frequently asked
questions

 

Book your consultation now

When you’re deciding whether to have treatment, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our customers most frequently ask.

There are many types of chemical skin peels, which can be customised to suit each person’s individual needs. An experienced practitioner will ensure that the peel they recommend for you is suitable for your skin colour, texture and needs.

Our UK clinics offer skin peels in a variety of strengths to suit differing requirements. Chemical peels are generally categorised as mild, medium and deep. Mild peels including the Obagi Blue Radiance Peel do not penetrate below the epidermis (top layer of the skin). Medium peels such as TCA (trichloroacetic acid) reach the surface of the middle and thickest layer of the skin (the dermis) and deep peels including Phenol chemical peels reach the deeper levels of the dermis.

The treatment takes around half an hour, but it may be longer depending on the product and treatment chosen. A chemical solution is applied to the area being treated and you will feel an initial warm sensation as the chemical becomes active. A post-peel cream is then applied. Two to three days later, your skin will begin to peel to reveal the healthy new skin beneath.

Skin peels can be combined with many of our other treatments, both non-surgical and surgical, such as face lifts.

Our skin peel treatment is a superficial, controlled professional peel used by trained professionals. It is a deeper peel than you could achieve at home, as the chemicals used are more intensive.

Peels are not painful, but you can expect a warm sensation during the acid solution’s action on the skin. The acid solution is removed after a set time and soothing creams and serums are applied.

Depending on your skin type and the intensity of the peel, you may experience some redness, temporary dryness or superficial peeling/flaking. These symptoms are normal and they will diminish progressively and should disappear completely within 3 days. The use of the pre- and post-peel products will minimise the potential after effects.

Yes, peeling can be done alone but will also work well in combination with other aesthetic treatments such as fillers or anti-wrinkle treatment. Your practitioner can recommend the best combination of treatments for your skin type and personal requirements.

They will give you a personal quotation of costs and information about finance options, the expected timescale and our treatment facilities.

At your consultation, you can book your treatment if you feel ready, but there’s no obligation to go ahead. Cosmetic treatment is a big step and you may want to take time to do more research and think about your decision. We’ll give you an information booklet, which provides comprehensive information on your procedure and aftercare. This is an important resource and we require customers to read the detailed information it contains. You’ll also find lots of helpful information here on our website – you can read about THG’s cosmetic treatment expertise and inspiring stories from some of our customers. Our clinic teams are available to discuss any concerns you may have. And when you feel ready, they can book you in for your procedure. We also have a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period in place, which means that if you change your mind about the procedure after booking within that period, you will not be charged.

On the day of your treatment, your clinic team will make your experience as comfortable as possible. Professional skin peeling involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin to induce a controlled deep exfoliation, improving the quality and radiance of the skin. Our skin peel is a professional dermatological treatment, which can help treat fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, sunspots and hyperpigmentation, matt and dull complexion, loss of skin tone, acne and acne scarring, and large or open pores. Chemical peels are generally categorised as mild, medium and deep. Mild peels including the Obagi Blue Radiance Peel do not penetrate below the epidermis (top layer of the skin). Medium peels such as TCA (trichloroacetic acid) reach the surface of the middle and thickest layer of the skin (the dermis) and deep peels including Phenol chemical peels reach the deeper levels of the dermis. Our most popular peel is the Obagi Blue Radiance Peel. This peel has a low level of salicylic acid, a blend of lactic and glycolic acids and extra calming agents including Willow Bark and Liquorice Root, which help to soothe the skin.

All THG clinics are equipped to the highest standards of clinical care and customer comfort and we’ll be here to help you recuperate quickly. For skin peel treatment, you’ll be able to leave our clinic as soon as the procedure is completed.

At THG, we’re here to support you after your procedure. To get the maximum benefit from your skin peel, we offer products to help condition your skin and help it recover. The products are specially designed to work with the professional peels and to enhance the results.

Buttock lift frequently asked questions

Book your consultation now

When you’re deciding whether to have surgery, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our patients most frequently ask.

The consultation with your surgeon is an opportunity to have an open discussion about what aspects of your buttocks you are unhappy with, how the condition may have arisen and the results you may be likely to achieve. The surgeon will recommend the best course of treatment. If you wish to have excess fat removed rather than excess skin, liposuction may be a more suitable procedure.

 

We advise that you rest for at least a week after your buttock lift procedure, and be extra careful when sitting. You will be in some pain and discomfort and will have swelling and bruising around the treated area for approximately 4 weeks.

 

In the case of a buttock lift, scarring is usually around the top and the sides of the buttocks. However these may be hidden by underwear and swimwear. Scarring can take around a year to fade.

 

You shouldn’t participate in any exercise until approximately 4-6 weeks after your operation.

On the day of your surgery, your medical team will make your experience as comfortable as possible and you’ll meet your surgeon again before the procedure. Buttock lift surgery involves a combination of surgical techniques to reshape and lift the bottom. Excess skin is cut away, and liposuction may be used to remove excess fat. The remaining skin is then lifted by an incision at the top of the buttocks, which can help to achieve a firmer contour. Generally this operation leaves a scar along the upper buttock, but this can go down the sides if a further incision is required. If you only have a small area of excess skin at the bottom of your buttocks, the scar can usually be hidden by the buttock crease. The butt lift procedure is performed under general anaesthetic.

Labiaplasty surgery usually takes around one hour under general anaesthetic.

After a labiaplasty, you will have a dressing put on in the operating theatre. You will then have a post-op review with a nurse at your local clinic approximately 7 days after your procedure.

You will feel some discomfort following this procedure. However, we will provide pain relief in hospital and also advise on managing any discomfort when you return home. You’ll have a review after 7 and 14 days, and then you’ll see your cosmetic surgeon again after a month so we can ensure that you are recovering well.

We advise that you take one week off work following labia reduction surgery.

Recovery can vary, but you should expect to abstain from intercourse for 3-4 weeks after surgery to allow the area to fully heal.

Scarring should be minimal following a labiaplasty and should be hidden as much as possible within the natural folds.

Liposuction frequently asked questions

Book your consultation now

When you’re deciding whether to have surgery, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our patients most frequently ask.

Our liposculpture procedure is generally suitable for patients who have stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet or exercise, and who want to achieve fat loss and body contouring. Fat removal areas may include the tummy, buttocks, chin, arms and knees. A number of areas can be treated in the same session. A consultation with a surgeon can help you identify the results you could expect.

 

Liposuction can take between one and three hours, depending on how much fat has to be removed and the areas being treated.

 

You will normally need to stay in hospital for one night if you have a general anaesthetic. We’ll discuss what we think is best with you before we book your surgery.

 

This can be anything between three and four litres of fat per operation. For anything more than this, we would recommend multiple surgeries.

 

Stubborn fat deposits that can’t be removed by diet or exercise usually occur in areas such as the stomach, thighs, buttocks, sides, back, chest or chin. Liposuction is a fat removal procedure designed to reduce areas of excessive fat in areas that can be resistant to fat loss. It isn’t a weight loss procedure, but enables you to target specific problem areas.

 

After liposuction, a scar of about a quarter of an inch will be left, placed wherever possible in a body fold or crease. Scars generally fade and reduce in visibility.

When you’re deciding whether to have surgery, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our patients most frequently ask.

Tummy tuck surgery is suitable for patients who want to eliminate excess skin as a result of pregnancy or weight loss, along with muscle tightening in the stomach area. The surgery is not in itself a means of losing weight – diet and exercise are the best way to remove unwanted fat. If diet and exercise has not enabled you to reach your target weight, and you have a BMI over 30, bariatric surgery may be a suitable procedure for you. Your surgeon will advise you which form of surgery is most suitable for you.

Tummy tuck surgery usually takes 2-3 hours under general anaesthetic.

Following the procedure, patients usually need to stay in hospital for two nights.

Yes. An incision is generally made from one hip to the other along the bikini line, which could later be covered by underwear. The scar can stretch from one side of the lower abdomen to the other depending on the size of the stomach. All scars take time to soften and fade, and this can take up to a year.

You’ll need to wear an appropriate post-surgical compression garment to aid healing. The specialist 3-panel abdominal binder can be purchased at Dolan Park Hospital, where your surgery will take place, or at selected clinics. The three panels of the binder apply the correct pressure to the abdominal area, which stops fluid building up, prevents swelling and reduces bleeding. The binder is fastened with Velcro to allow easy adjustment. Abdominoplasty patients need to wear this binder for six weeks. You will be discharged in one of these post-surgery, however due to the length of time the garment needs to be worn patients often feel that it is better to replace the garment.

When you’re deciding whether to have surgery, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our patients most frequently ask.

Vaginal tightening surgery usually takes around one hour under general anaesthetic.

Following the procedure, you’ll need to stay in hospital for one night.

Vaginal tightening surgery tightens the stretched tissues and pelvic floor muscles and ligaments. The surgeon will also remove any excess skin to reduce the overall size of the vagina.

You should expect your vagina and the internal and external surrounding area to be quite swollen and sore after surgery. It is a sensitive area, so walking and sitting may be uncomfortable at first. You’ll be given pain relief while in hospital and advice on managing the pain and discomfort when you return home. An ice pack wrapped in cloth may also give you some relief. The early recovery stage will pass, but if you have any concerns, you will have 24/7 contact details for our nursing team.

You should be able to return to work about one week after surgery and expect to be fully recovered in four weeks. You will need to abstain from sexual intercourse for 4-8 weeks, depending on your recovery.

On the day of your surgery, your medical team will make your experience as comfortable as possible and you’ll meet your surgeon again before the procedure. Vaginal tightening surgery involves shortening the stretched muscles at the back of your vagina with dissolvable stitches and removing any excess skin. This tightens the vaginal muscles and surrounding soft tissues, making the diameter of your vagina smaller. Vaginal tightening surgery usually takes around one hour under general anaesthetic. When the muscles and ligaments in the vagina become weaker, it can leave the bladder, bowel and womb unsupported, and they can begin to push through the vaginal wall. This can lead to problems with the ability to pass urine and stools. Surgery can make the vagina feel tighter and more comfortable, and any problems with passing urine may be resolved.

Vaser® liposuction frequently asked questions

Book your consultation now

When you’re deciding whether to have surgery, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our patients most frequently ask.

Vaser® liposuction may be suitable if you have some localised areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise and you want to achieve fat loss and body contouring.

Vaser® liposuction usually takes between one and three hours, depending on how much fat has to be removed and the area being treated.

You may be able to return home the same day if you have a local anaesthetic. We’ll discuss what we think is best with you before we book your surgery.

This can be anything between three and four litres of fat per operation. For anything more than this, we would recommend multiple surgeries.

The recovery time is usually quite quick and you should be able to go back to work after a few days.

Vaser® liposuction can treat any area of the body, but popular areas include hips, thighs, stomach, chin, knees and bottom.

If you gain weight after liposuction, the area treated can also gain some of this weight. However, if you keep a healthy lifestyle and diet, you can continue to have the same results post-treatment.

On the day of your surgery, your medical team will make your experience as comfortable as possible and you’ll meet your surgeon again before the procedure. Vaser® liposuction uses advanced ultrasound technology to effectively break down fat cells without affecting other cells that vibrate at different frequencies. The liquefied fat cells are then removed from the body using a gentle suction process. This can usually be performed under local anaesthetic. The procedure is minimally invasive, which means that only small incisions are made in order to suck out the liquefied fat cells. These incisions are typically too small to require stitches. The procedure usually takes between one and three hours, depending on the number of areas that you want to treat.

We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly. For Vaser® liposuction you may be able to leave the hospital on the same day as your procedure.

Breast asymmetry surgery frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your surgeon any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

If one of your breasts is considerably bigger than the other, then a push-up bra can give the support and lift you need to balance out the asymmetry. Opting for a plunge bra style with removal and padding inserts can also help to even out your breasts.

If you are looking for a more long-term solution, the breast enlargement or uplift surgery could be an option for you.

 

If you have always had one breast that is larger than the other or if you can attribute your asymmetry to a specific hormonal cause such as pregnancy, breastfeeding or starting a new contraceptive pill, then there is most likely nothing to worry about.

We would always advise you to contact your GP in the first instance if you have any concerns about recent and unexpected changes to your breasts, whatever they might be.

It may be that a breast removal and re-augmentation is necessary to correct a prior breast surgery. If you have concerns at all about your breast implants in particular, we would advise you to make an appointment to see your cosmetic surgeon for a review appointment.

As a result of fluctuations in hormone levels during pregnancy, it can be normal to have unexpected and sometimes uneven breast growth, and this is very rarely a cause for concern.

But if you have any worries at all, we would always advise you to contact your GP in the first instance if you have any concerns about recent changes to your breasts and would like to seek advice.

As breast asymmetry is usually an aesthetic rather than a medical concern, it is not usually covered by the NHS. Breast enlargement and breast uplift procedures are both elective cosmetic surgery procedures which are offered by The Hospital Group.

In a free consultation with one of our expert GMC-registered surgeons, we will listen to your concerns, and discuss the procedure itself, the aftercare and the cost of improving the appearance of asymmetrical breasts with us.

Eye bag removal surgery is suitable for patients who have excess, loose, baggy skin beneath the eyes.

Facelift surgery frequently asked questions

 

Book your consultation now

When considering whether facelift surgery is right for you, it’s important to have as much information as possible so you can make an informed decision. You’ll be able to discuss the details at your consultation, but here are some of the most frequently asked questions about facelift surgery.

Facelift surgery is most suitable for patients who have jowls, loose neck skin and a general saggy appearance to the skin on the face and neck. If you also have wrinkles, non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment can be combined with a facelift to help improve the overall result.

This depends on the type of facelift surgery. A full facelift procedure usually takes around 4 hours under general anaesthetic.

Following the procedure, you’ll need to stay in hospital for one or two nights.

Yes, if that’s what you need. Your surgeon will advise on the best treatment for your requirements. As well as the facelift, we offer eyelid surgery, eye bag removal and brow lift treatments.

Most of the scars will be hidden within your hair and the normal creases of your skin. During a facelift, incisions are made in the natural crease lines in front of the ear, behind the earlobes and along the lower scalp. If you have eye surgery, an incision is made close to the natural crease of the eyelid. In both procedures, post-operative scarring will fade over time.

Facelift surgery involves making incisions, which normally begin above the hairline at the temples, follow the natural line in front of the ear, curve behind the earlobe and along the lower scalp. Facial tissue and muscle are then separated, fat may be trimmed or suctioned and underlying muscle may be tightened. The excess skin is pulled up and back, trimmed and sutured into position. A full facelift procedure usually takes around 4 hours under general anaesthetic. The one-stitch lift procedure is performed as a day case under local anaesthetic. It takes around 30 minutes and involves minimal recovery time. Silhouette Lift is a non-invasive procedure used to lift and reposition sagging mid-face tissue. It is performed as a day case under local anaesthetic, taking around one hour. It is best suited to correcting signs of ageing in the nasolabial folds, the expression lines and the jawline. Silhouette Soft is a non-invasive procedure used to counteract the effects of facial volume loss. It can redefine the facial features in a 30-minute treatment without any incisions and with minimal downtime.

Our lip lift surgery can raise the position of the upper lip, which can make the upper lip appear fuller and the area between the nose and lips shorter. Lip lift surgery is most suitable for patients who have a thin upper lip and/or a long distance between the nose and upper lip. The procedure can improve the upper lip shape and facial proportions.

Lip reduction surgery can help correct a large, voluminous lip size. This procedure is most suitable for patients who have naturally large or asymmetrical lips, or who have excessive lip volume due to lip augmentation with permanent fillers.

Gummy smile correction can alter the position of the upper lip to cover more of the upper gums and teeth. This procedure is most suitable for patients whose upper lip elevates too far above their teeth when they smile, exposing an excessive area of the upper gums.

Lip lift surgery
This involves making an incision in the curvature of the lower part of the nose. Excess skin and muscle is then removed from the tissue above the upper lip just beneath the nose. The procedure takes around 1 hour, and is performed under local or general anaesthetic.

Lip reduction surgery
This involves making incisions inside the lips which are used to remove underlying tissues and skin. The incisions are then closed up using dissolvable stitches leaving no visible scars. Typically, lip reduction surgery procedures are performed while the patient is under IV sedation and usually take between 20 and 40 minutes per lip, depending on the extent and cause of the problem. In general it takes a few weeks for the swelling to settle down. In some cases it might take between 6 to 8 weeks to see the final results.

Gummy smile correction
There are 3 techniques that can be performed when having a gummy smile correction, depending on what you are trying to achieve.

1. Lowering upper lip or repositioning of the upper lip – This lip reposition procedure consists of two incisions, one at the mucogengival junction and another in the vestibule. Those incisions are connected laterally, the mucosa is removed and the lip is lowered to the new position. This procedure would lower the upper lip and improve the gummy smile giving a fuller appearance to the upper lip. This technique would be performed to solely reposition the upper lip or in combination with gengivoplasty

2. Gingivoplasty – This crown lengthening procedure consists of removing excess gingiva from the upper part to the teeth. This procedure alone can lengthen the teeth by 1 mm and can improve very mild cases of gummy smile.

3. Maxillary reduction surgery/orthognatic surgery – This procedure is usually chosen for severe cases only and will take place under general anaesthetic. Maybe it has not been possible to correct your teeth and how they bite together with orthodontics alone. This is because the bones of your face and jaws are out of balance with one another. Surgery will change the relationship of your upper jaw to the lower jaw and will correct these problems. An incision is made in the gum above the teeth in the upper jaw. There are no incisions made on the face. A cut is made through the gum above your upper teeth to gain access to the jawbone. The upper jaw is then cut to allow it to be broken in a controlled manner. It is then moved into its new position and held in place with small metal plates and screws. The gum is stitched back into place with dissolvable stitches. These can take a fortnight or even longer to fall out.

We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly. Lip surgery can often be performed as a day case, which means you’ll be able to leave hospital on the same day. However, in some cases, depending on the patient, an overnight stay in hospital may be recommended after the procedure. Each patient is given a personalised care plan, developed with the advice of their surgeon. All THG hospitals are equipped to the highest standards of clinical care and patient comfort.

Liposuction frequently
asked questions

When you’re deciding whether to have surgery, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our patients most frequently ask.

Our liposculpture procedure generally suits patients who have stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet or exercise, and who want to achieve fat loss and body contouring. Fat removal areas may include the chest, tummy, buttocks, chin, arms and knees. A number of areas can be treated in the same session. A consultation with a surgeon can help you identify the results you could expect.

Liposuction can take between one and three hours, depending on how much fat has to be removed and the areas being treated.

You will normally need to stay in hospital for one night if you have a general anaesthetic. We’ll discuss what we think is best with you before we book your surgery.

This can be anything between three and four litres of fat per operation. For anything more than this, we would recommend multiple surgeries.

Stubborn fat deposits that can’t be removed by diet or exercise usually occur in areas such as the stomach, thighs, buttocks, sides, back, chest or chin. Liposuction is a fat removal procedure designed to reduce areas of excessive fat in areas that can be resistant to fat loss. It isn’t a weight loss procedure, but enables you to target specific problem areas.

After liposuction, a scar of about a quarter of an inch will be left, placed wherever possible in a body fold or crease. Scars generally fade and reduce in visibility.

On the day of your surgery, your medical team will make your experience as comfortable as possible and you’ll meet your surgeon again before the procedure. Liposuction involves inserting of a small tube-like syringe (called a cannula) through a small incision in the skin. The excess fatty deposits are then drawn through the tube to help achieve a smoother, more defined profile. The procedure is usually carried out under general anaesthetic. The procedure usually takes between one and three hours, depending on the number of areas that you want to treat.

We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly. For liposuction you will normally need to stay in hospital for one night following your procedure. Each patient is given a personalised care plan, developed with the advice of their surgeon. All THG hospitals are equipped to the highest standards of clinical care and patient comfort. You may be advised to wear a compression garment during the day for between two and six weeks following the procedure. The improved overall appearance of the treated areas will become apparent in the months following the procedure.

At THG, we offer a full package of aftercare support with all our cosmetic surgery procedures to give you complete peace of mind.

When you’re deciding whether to have surgery, it’s reassuring to have all the facts. You’ll be able to ask any questions at your consultation, but here are some that our patients most frequently ask.

Male chest reduction surgery is performed under general anaesthetic. Following the procedure, you’ll normally need to stay in hospital for one night.

Surgery to correct ‘man boobs’ is called reduction mammoplasty and reduces breast size, flattening and enhancing the shape of the chest. The procedure involves liposuction to remove excess fat and, depending on your requirements, excess skin may also be removed.

The surgeon will seek to conceal any incision lines within natural contours, although some scarring may be visible. Scarring can take around a year to fade. However, the improvement in your profile will be immediate.

‘Nose job’ surgery normally takes around two hours under general anaesthetic.

You’ll normally need to stay in hospital overnight after nose surgery.

At your consultation, you can discuss what you want to change about your nose with the surgeon. You can agree what size and shape nose you would like to achieve. There are many considerations to be taken into account and these will be discussed during your consultation with your surgeon.

Most surgery involves performing rhinoplasty from within the nose, making their incision inside the nostrils so scarring is undetectable. Occasionally an open procedure (operating on the outside of the nose) is more suitable, especially in complicated cases. This may leave very fine scars.

After your rhinoplasty surgery is completed, you will have a plaster cast that is applied in the operating theatre. It is important that this plaster cast is not removed for a period of at least 7-10 days.

Rhinoplasty involves making incisions in your nose.

You may have dressings inside each nostril at first, and you will also have a splint over your nose to help support it, which you’ll need to keep in place for 7-10 days. It will be at least two weeks before the bruising begins to fade and several months before your nose settles into its new shape. Many patients decide to take time off work during this period.

Tummy tuck surgery is suitable for patients who want to eliminate excess skin as a result of pregnancy or weight loss, along with muscle tightening in the stomach area. The surgery is not in itself a means of losing weight – diet and exercise are the best way to remove unwanted fat. If diet and exercise has not enabled you to reach your target weight, and you have a BMI over 30, bariatric surgery may be a suitable procedure for you. Your surgeon will advise you which form of surgery is most suitable for you.

Tummy tuck surgery usually takes 2-3 hours under general anaesthetic.

Following the procedure, patients usually need to stay in hospital for two nights.

Yes. An incision is generally made from one hip to the other along the bikini line, which could later be covered by underwear. The scar can stretch from one side of the lower abdomen to the other depending on the size of the stomach. All scars take time to soften and fade, and this can take up to a year.

You’ll need to wear an appropriate post-surgical compression garment to aid healing. The specialist 3-panel abdominal binder can be purchased at Dolan Park Hospital, where your surgery will take place, or at selected clinics. The three panels of the binder apply the correct pressure to the abdominal area, which stops fluid building up, prevents swelling and reduces bleeding. The binder is fastened with Velcro to allow easy adjustment. Abdominoplasty patients need to wear this binder for six weeks. You will be discharged in one of these post-surgery, however due to the length of time the garment needs to be worn patients often feel that it is better to replace the garment.

Gastric banding involves placing a fully adjustable silicone ring around the top of the stomach to stimulate specific nerve endings in the stomach wall. Once the band has been adjusted sufficiently, this helps to create a feeling of satisfaction on smaller portions of food.

At The Hospital Group, we’re here to look after you. As UK market leaders in weight loss management, we offer advice you can trust, treatment based on your individual needs, and support throughout your journey with us. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect from your gastric bypass operation.

The first step of your weight loss journey with us is to meet your patient advisor in your local clinic. During your free consultation, you can discuss the different weight loss options available, why you’re considering surgery, the gastric bypass cost, the various payment options and more. We’ll discuss whether a gastric bypass will be the right choice for you, and you’ll be able to ask any questions you may have, from the aftercare to the dietary requirements. You’ll be given a full breakdown of the gastric bypass price, be advised as to when you may be able to have the surgery, and be provided with information on our state-of-the-art facilities.

If you’d like to go ahead, we can book your gastric bypass surgery at your consultation – but there’s no obligation to proceed, it’s completely up to you. We understand that having a gastric bypass is a big decision, so you may want to take some time to think it over and do some research. At your consultation, we’ll give you a detailed booklet packed full of information about your procedure, including the gastric bypass dietary requirements and aftercare. It’s important to read this thoroughly, as well as checking out our website where you’ll find information on our highly experienced surgeons and our CQC-registered facilities, and read the stories of other people who have embarked on their weight loss journey with us. If you decide you’d like to go ahead with gastric bypass surgery, simply let your patient advisor know and they’ll book it for you. And because of our a 14-day cooling off period, if you change your mind during that period you can cancel without any charge.

On the day of your surgery, your medical team will make your experience as comfortable as possible. You’ll meet your surgeon again before the procedure. Gastric bypass surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic and you’ll need to stay in hospital afterwards. There are several varieties of bypass, including Roux-en-Y and “mini” gastric bypasses, but all involve dividing the stomach to create a small stomach pouch and then attaching a section of the small intestine to the pouch, therefore bypassing part of the small intestine. The smaller stomach pouch restricts the amount of food you can eat and is designed to make you feel full after smaller meals. It also aims to drop appetite hormone levels to reduce your appetite. Bypassing part of the small intestine reduces how many calories you absorb from food, as well as vitamins and minerals, and so supplements are required for life. Please note that gastric bypass surgery is non-reversible.

We’ll be here throughout your recovery process in order to help you recuperate quickly. For gastric bypass surgery, you’ll need to stay in the hospital where your surgery has taken place for 2-4 nights, depending on your procedure. Each patient is given a personalised care plan, developed on the advice of their surgeon. All THG hospitals are equipped to the highest standards of clinical care and patient comfort and are CQC-registered.

When you have a gastric bypass, the actual surgery is only the start of your journey. At The Hospital Group, we offer a full package of aftercare support to help you achieve your weight loss goals. Exactly what benefits you’ll get will depend on the package you choose, but all our aftercare includes access to a 24-hour emergency helpline, appointments with our specialist dietitians, support from our nurses and access to a weight loss support team.
