For many years we have published pre and post-operative photographs of patients who have undergone aesthetic surgery on our website.
With this new website, and after a great deal of thought, we have elected not to continue with this practice. There are a number of misgivings being expressed by regulatory authorities that the use of photographs on websites are rarely educational and are rather directed towards inducements to surgery and given that every patient is individual the results may not always be applicable to everyone. It is also increasingly difficult to expect patients to allow their photographs to be used on the internet even when anonymised.
With the express agreement of some previous patients we are able to show all patients representative examples of before and after photographs during the private space of a personal consultation.
