“The decision to have cosmetic surgery is not an easy one, the aim is to get a positive life-changing outcome – it’s why I provide all my patients with honest, open and appropriate advice. Understanding what’s possible and what’s not from the outset is critical to people getting the outcome they expect. My approach is to listen carefully and give people all the time they need to tell me their wishes and desires – it really is all about you.”

An operation where excess skin and, to a lesser extent, fat is removed from below the umbilicus (or tummy button).
The normal reasons for seeking a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, are after weight loss or following a pregnancy. It tightens the abdominal skin and can improve the waistline. It is sometimes combined with liposuction for additional contour definition depending on the amount of tissue that needs to be removed.
Face and Neck Lifts
The facelift aims to reverse some of the effects of gravity and the ageing process on the face and neck. Most commonly, patients request improvement in the definition of the jawline and the shape of the neck.
In youth, a sharply defined angle marks out the boundaries of the neck and lower jaw, however, the ageing process blunts this demarcation point and, at worst, results in a continuous band (or bands) of skin running from the neck directly to the chin.
Many women feel dissatisfied with the shape and size of their breasts and this can profoundly affect their confidence and self-esteem. Whether you are looking for an enlargement, reduction or an uplift, breast surgery is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures in the UK.
Extensive experience in peripheral nerve injury and reconstructive surgery means Anthony has the advantage of meticulous tissue handling and expertise in microsurgery aiding his aesthetic work. His specialist reconstructive background feeds into the results he achieves for his patients.
Reconstructive surgery involves removing muscles from elsewhere in the body, with their blood supply and nerves in place, and re-establishing them in another part of the body, such as the arm, to rebuild function. This aims to improve finger flexion or bending of the elbow.
