Some nonsurgical enhancements can be alternatives to cosmetic surgery when it’s too soon for an operation, between operations or else the “icing on the cake” after surgery is completed. However they are no substitute for the longer lasting effects of surgery.
For skin smoothing, superficial scars and wrinkles, chemical peels, laser resurfacing and micro-needling are options.
Botox and HA (hyaluronic acid) filler injections are popular but best used sparingly and under the correct circumstances if they are to appear natural. The effects of Botox and HA are temporary.
Other nonsurgical options can be permanent and normally do not need to be repeated, such as sclerotherapy for varicose and other unsightly veins.
In addition to my surgery, the nonsurgical treatments I’ve had include tooth whitening, chemical peels, micro-needling, permanent makeup, thread vein sclerotherapy and mole removal. A five percent improvement here, a ten percent improvement there – it all adds up.
What I don’t do is waste time and money on expensive nonsurgical treatments that are very short-lived or have little to no effect whatsoever. And there are plenty of those around!
Private consultations with me are available to suit your schedule and location via video using Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp, Google Meet or Zoom. Alternatively by telephone or email with pre-emailed photos. Longer consultations upon application. Additionally by special arrangement, I may be retained for extended ongoing support.
Each one hour in-depth consultation includes assessment of your particular needs to create an individual treatment plan for up to two surgical operations plus any nonsurgical treatments of interest, and follow-up afterwards. Further consultations must be booked for subsequent procedures. More information here.
As this is a very quickly-evolving field, all recommendations are valid for 6 months only and may be re-confirmed with me via email. After 12 months, if more procedures are desired a new consultation is required. All consultations are with me personally. You are assured of absolute confidentiality at all times.
