If you are based in South East London and are considering cosmetic surgery, BMI The Blackheath Hospital offers a consultant-led service, from initial consultation right through to treatment and aftercare.
Our consultants can advise you on a range of treatments, from breast surgery to rhinoplasty. Among the main treatments we offer are:
Breast reduction surgery
Breast reduction surgery is the reduction in the size of your breast(s). If you suffer from large, heavy breasts it can be very uncomfortable doing everyday tasks, so a reduction surgery may improve your quality of life.
The procedure involves removal of excess skin, fat and glandular tissue. The nipple will be repositioned, and normal breast function is expected following the procedure.
Breast augmentation is also known as breast enlargement surgery. This type of surgery can help you if you would like to increase your breast size.
Implants are inserted under the breast tissue to increase the size, and in some cases, change the shape of the breasts. The implants come in a variety of sizes and this can be discussed with your surgeon prior to surgery.
If you would like to improve the shape of your breasts, then breast lift surgery might be the right procedure for you. Living with sagging breasts can impact your self-esteem.
The surgery removes excess skin to be able to lift the breast and give you a better shape. It is a similar technique to breast reduction surgery, but you retain all of your breast tissue.
Weight loss surgery
We understand that considering weight loss surgery can seem daunting. The surgery is only the start of your journey and the aftercare is the key factor in making it a success. We strive to support you at every part of your weight loss journey.
Liposuction is the removal of excess fat from your body to give it a more toned appearance. It is important to understand that liposuction is not a way to lose weight and is not a form of weight loss surgery.
It is normally performed on specific parts of the body such as the stomach, thighs, upper arms and buttocks. It is most successful on those that have good skin tone and elasticity to allow the skin to mould itself to the new body shape.
Tummy tuck surgery
A tummy tuck is also known as an abdominoplasty and is performed to remove excess skin and fat from the stomach and tighten the abdominal muscles.
People have a tummy tuck for many reasons, but it is normally due to weaker abdominal muscles after pregnancy or who have excess skin from weight loss.
The procedure is not for weight loss and is a cosmetic-based procedure. It can provide you with more confidence and the results can also be long-lasting if you maintain a healthy diet.
Rhinoplasty is the reshaping of the nose. You may feel uncomfortable or lack confidence if your nose is misshapen or has been damaged due to injury.
There are two ways to perform the procedure either a reduction or an augmentation. Your surgeon will be able to talk you through each option and what would be best for you.
As you age, the skin on your face loses definition, which can cause your face to drop, causing wrinkles and lines to develop.
A facelift can help reduce the sagging and wrinkles on your face. It is important to remember that a face lift will not stop your face ageing, but it can help to give it a more youthful appearance.
