Facial surgical procedures

Eyelid and eye bag surgery (blepharoplasty)

Eye bag and eyelid surgery can lift droopy upper lids and/or reduce puffiness of bags under the eyes by removing excess skin and improving smoothness and contours.

This procedure cannot remove crows feet, or change the colour of dark shadows under the eyes, but if you do want to improve these areas we offer brow lifts or anti-wrinkle treatment by injection, which can be used in conjunction with blepharoplasty.

Blepharoplasty takes around one or two hours and usually requires an overnight stay. This procedure can be carried out with a local anaesthetic, where the area around your eyes will be numb but you will be awake, or general anaesthetic, which means you will be asleep for the operation.

As we age, our facial muscles become slacker and the skin on the face becomes looser and less elastic, creating folds and lines. A facelift is a cosmetic operation to smooth and redefine the contours of the face, neck and jaw line.

A facelift can smooth all of the face and neck area, or be performed only on the brow area, lower face or neck.

The operation is performed under a general anaesthetic and you will usually need to stay in hospital for one or two nights.

Nose surgery (rhinoplasty)

Nose surgery is a procedure to reshape and/or resize the nose. It is one of the most popular surgical procedures for men and women.

There are two main types of rhinoplasty: reduction rhinoplasty to make the nose smaller, and augmentation rhinoplasty to give the nose more bulk or make it larger.

Both operations last 60 to 90 minutes and are usually carried out under general anaesthetic. You will usually be able to return home the same day or you may need to stay in hospital for one to two nights.

Body surgical procedures

Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation is used to enlarge or alter the shape of a woman’s breasts using silicone or saline implants. It can also be undertaken in conjunction with breast uplift surgery (mastopexy), which corrects drooping breasts.

There are many different kinds of implants available and a range of techniques that can improve the shape of your breasts. The implants are usually inserted behind your natural breasts through a discrete incision in the crease under the breast, around your nipples or near your armpit.

The operation is carried out under a general anaesthetic, which means you will be asleep during the procedure, and normally lasts one to two hours. You will usually stay in hospital for one or two nights following the procedure.

Breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty)

Breast reduction aims to relieve the discomfort of large breasts which can include back and neck pain, grooves in the shoulders from bra straps and rashes under the breasts.

It can also help many women feel less self-conscious about the size of their breasts.

Breast reduction surgery can help your body to look more in proportion. Your breasts will not grow back, but they may increase in size if you put on weight or become pregnant.

This procedure reduces the size of your breasts by removing some of your breast tissue. The operation can take two hours or more and is performed under a general anaesthetic.

If you have stubborn areas of fat that you can’t shift with diet or exercise, liposuction could be the answer. Liposuction reshapes the body by permanently removing fatty deposits from problem areas, such as the tummy, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees and chin.

The procedure should not be considered as a way to lose weight. It is best to have liposuction after you have achieved your target weight as a way of smoothing out any saggy or stubbornly fatty areas - this will help to ensure better, longer lasting results.

Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)

A tummy tuck can help to flatten your stomach by tightening abdominal muscles and removing any excess skin that dieting and exercise cannot change, a problem that often occurs after weight-loss or pregnancy. It can also correct Caesarean scars and reduce the effects of stretch marks.

A tummy tuck should not be considered as a way to lose weight - it is best to have the procedure after you have achieved your target weight. If you maintain a healthy weight, your skin shouldn’t stretch and your new shape will last.

This operation is performed under a general anaesthetic, which means you would be asleep during the procedure. It requires a one or two night stay in hospital after your operation.

Breast implant removal

If you are unhappy with your breast augmentation, you can choose to have your implants removed or replaced. As with any cosmetic procedure, it is important that you review your expectations thoroughly before you decide to proceed.

With time and after pregnancy, the tissues of the breast will change and become thinner. Some women find that their implants become more visable as time goes on and in a small number of cases ripples in the implant may also become visable. The chances of complications depends on a number of factors, including the exact type of surgery you have and your general health.

At Spire South Bank Cosmetic Surgery, you will be seen by an experienced consultant plastic or cosmetic surgeon who will discuss your options and the best course of treatment for you.

The operation to remove breast implants (with or without replacement) is performed under a general anaesthetic.

Lipoedema is a condition that makes you accumulate fat below the waist, often giving your hips, buttocks and legs that are out of proportion with your upper body. It can also affect your arms. The limbs can be very tender and painful and often bruise easily.

Doctors believe that female hormones are one of the biggest reasons behind this condition.  Miss Anne Dancey, Consultant Cosmetic Surgeon, says “It can occur in women of all sizes, from the seriously underweight to the morbidly obese but, unlike normal fat, lipoedematous fat cannot be lost through diet and exercise.”

Quite often Lipedema is mistaken for lymphedema and obesity.  “It is a condition that often goes undiagnosed or blamed on weight gain and I am really working to make people much more aware of it.” Miss Dancey.

Miss Anne Dancey has been trained in all areas of aesthetic plastic surgery by some of the best cosmetic surgeons in the UK. Whilst she performs the full repertoire of plastic procedures, her special interest lies in aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery and lymphoedema surgery.

Being one of the few female consultants to carry out treatments for Lipodema in the country, Anne Dancey has the unique advantage of approaching surgery from a female perspective. She is a relentless perfectionist, thoroughly committed to delivering the optimum result for every one of her patients. She is passionate about the future of plastic surgery and is well versed in modern advancements and techniques in one of the most dynamic and challenging areas of medicine.
