Below you will find answers to a few of the questions The Cosmetic Surgery Clinic is frequently asked. Please note, however, that our philosophy of YOU first means that we have deliberately not answered questions about specific procedures here, as it is not our policy to provide 'online consultations'.
What surgical and non-surgicaland treatments do you perform?
We offer the complete range of cosmetic surgery and treatments for both women and men. This means we are able to recommend the least-invasive treatment to achieve the desired result. Please have a look at the above tabs for specific listings.
Are your team members fully qualified?
Our surgical team is led by Dr Alan Kingdon MRCS Eng LRCP Lond 1967, MB BS 1968 London, who has more than 30 years of experience as a cosmetic surgeon. The surgical team is supported by Registered Nurses who have experience in dermatology, cosmetic and plastic surgery. All treatments are undertaken by fully qualified specialists, whose qualifications will be detailed during your consultation.
Will I meet the surgeon who will perform the treatment?
Absolutely! This is the key part of our YOU first philosophy. After your treatment, you will even have the surgeon's mobile phone number, to discuss any post-operative concerns you might have.
Where do treatments and operations take place?
We use the services of approved hospitals to ensure you have access to the latest skills and technology for every treatment.
What sort of care will I get?
You, your health and your safety are our absolute priority. Which is why our ethos is to provide you with personal, impartial guidance and the highest standards of care.
Can I see 'before and after' photographs?
Yes. We will show you our extensive collection of 'before and after' photos related to the procedure you are interested in.
How soon can I have my operation after the consultation?
As part of our YOU first philosophy we strongly recommend that you give yourself at least a two-week period of reflection between the consultation and operation.
What happens after surgery?
We always call you the day after surgery. Then, throughout the period of your recovery, you will have access to us 24/7. You will also be given emergency mobile phone numbers. For residents of Jersey, we have a full-time nurse, based on the island.
How long will I need off work?
This will depend on the type of surgery and on your personal circumstances. It can be anything from a few days to a couple of weeks.
Can I fly after surgery?
This depends on your personal circumstances and you will be advised by your surgeon.
What 'extras' will I have to pay for?
There are no hidden costs. The price you are quoted covers everything, including surgeons' and anaesthetists' fees, plus hospital, theatre costs and all necessary drugs, dressings, garments, blood tests and follow-up appointments.
Do you provide finance?
No. But we do accept all major credit cards.
