Northwood Cosmetic Surgery

At Bishops Wood Hospital based in North West London, we offer a wide range of cosmetic procedures. We understand that getting cosmetic surgery requires serious consideration, so to make this decision easier we have a team of consultants available for you to ask any questions and discuss any concerns.

Cosmetic procedures available at Bishops Wood Hospital include:

Breast reduction surgery

A breast reduction can make your breasts smaller by removing some of the fatty tissue from under your breasts.  In order to maintain a natural appearance, it may be necessary to reposition the nipples as part of the procedure.

The operation will be performed under general anaesthetic and it may be necessary to stay in hospital for a few nights to recover.

Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation, often referred to as breast enlargement, is a cosmetic procedure which aims to give your breasts a larger shape. An incision will be made under your breast so that an implant can be put in place to give a fuller breast.

Your breasts will then be wrapped in bandages and you can usually go home on the same day or possibly the day afterwards.

Breast lift

A breast lift is a procedure that lifts your breasts to give them a youthful and fuller appearance. A plastic surgeon removes extra skin from the breast and reshapes the breast tissue.


Liposuction is a procedure that removes stubborn areas of fat from parts of your body, such as the hips, thighs, stomach, buttocks, arms and chin. This process is done by inserting a tube that sucks fatty deposits from the affected area.

Depending on the amount of fat being removed, either a local or general anaesthetic will be used.

After the procedure you can usually go home the same day or possibly the day afterwards.

Tummy tuck surgery

An abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure that tightens your abdominal muscles to give you a flat stomach. The procedure can also remove scars and stretchmarks from the tummy.

A tummy tuck will be done under general anaesthetic and you can usually go home after a night or two in hospital.


Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a procedure used to alter the shape of your nose. The nose can be reshaped in many ways, such as by repositioning the bridge, altering the tip or removing bumps.

The operation will be done under general anaesthetic and you will usually only need to spend one night in hospital.

Face lift

A facelift is a procedure used to give a firmer appearance to the face and neck. You can choose from a mini, midi or full facelift, depending on the look you want to achieve. Your consultant will be able to discuss the most appropriate option with you.

For any of the facelift procedures, you will usually only need to spend one or two nights in hospital.
