You may choose to have plastic surgery for many reasons, for some people they would like to enhance what they already have, whereas other people choose to have surgery to correct an issue which causes them to feel self-conscious. Plastic surgery can be performed on many of the areas of the body, and we have many options for you to choose from. Our Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Dr Mark Sheldon Lloyd, will be happy to discuss all your options with you and offer you all the advice and guidance you’ll need.
We’re here for:
Torn earlobe correction
Mole Assessment & Removal
All of our minor plastic surgery procedures are performed under local anaesthetic.
Split or torn earlobe correction
Earlobe repair surgery can be performed to correct earlobes which have been torn, split or stretched (gauged).
We’re here for:
Restoring earlobes to their normal shape and size
Advising on scar care and treating troublesome earlobe scars
Rebuilding confidence in your appearance
Giving you the opportunity to re-pierce once a full recovery is made
Earlobe repair surgery is a relatively quick and simple procedure conducted under local anaesthetic. Fine sutures are used to make sure the earlobe is accurately repaired and with minimal scarring. This scar is typically a thin, barely visible line and should fade over time.
Bruising and swelling from the surgery should begin to resolve by the end of the first week. If you have a history of bruising easily, resolution of bruising or swelling may take longer. However, bruises can be masked fairly easily with concealer.
We also offer a range of non-surgical cosmetic treatments, performed by our Aesthetics Medicine Doctor, Vikram Swaminathan. For more information on our Aesthetics offerings, please visit our specialist pages:
We are DDA compliant, with wheelchair access to the building and a consulting room and disabled toilet on the ground floor. We are currently having a ramp built to allow easy wheelchair access. In the meantime we are using something called a ‘stair climber’ so wheelchair users can access the building while the works are being completed. Our client advisors will be able to assist with any other requirements you may have.
We don’t take a payment upfront for our GP services. We always request that you tell us as soon as possible if you can’t attend an appointment. We do take a payment upfront for our consultant appointments and that can be done at the time of booking. We’ll be more than happy to cancel or re-schedule any consultant appointments for free up to 24 hours before your appointment. If your appointment is less than 24 hours away, our policy is that we ask for 50% of your total booking fee as a late cancellation fee. If you feel you may be late for your appointment, please contact us on 0300 247 0121 and we will do what we can to help you.
If, for whatever reason, you miss your consultant appointment and haven’t informed us at least 24 hours in advance, unfortunately we will need to charge you £180 towards the appointment as a late cancellation fee.
Currently unless you are a non-UK resident we are unable to directly accept any PMI or private health insurance. In some cases for non-UK residents your international health insurance may mean that you can use Virgin Care Private as part of your policy. Please check with your insurer. Any additional tests that your doctor may feel are necessary may also be available through the NHS. If you are interested in this please ask the doctor or consultant to advise. Unfortunately most UK-based private health insurance schemes do not cover primary care (such as private GP consultations), though some insurance companies require specialist referrals to be made by a GP (private or NHS) before they will cover the cost. Some policies cover the cost of laboratory tests. We are not able to liaise with insurance companies directly, and you will therefore need to pay for your treatment as a private patient. We will provide you with an itemised invoice to assist you in reclaiming any payments your insurance company may be able to cover.
If you need an appointment with one of our consultants, simply ask our client advisors to organise this. Our client advisors will then book you an appointment at a time which is convenient to you. This can be done in clinic or over the phone. This is the same for repeat appointments.
