There are two main types of cosmetic surgery provider in the UK. Independent UK-trained Consultant Practices such as Perfecta Cosmetic Surgery and the national chains.
At Perfecta Cosmetic Surgery you will be advised by UK trained Consultant Plastic Surgeons with more than 15 years experience delivering high quality, high value, clinical solutions and all your care is delivered at the regions finest private hospitals. These hospitals are not only superior in quality but enable us to offer safe competitive pricing. They can also help you arrange finance should you require it.
The national cosmetic chains hit the news because of the PIP breast implant scandal (PIP implant scandal). They have offices in some of our major cities with sales staff whose role is to sign you up for surgery. You are then likely to be sent to a hospital that may be many miles from your home. You may only meet the surgeon on the day of your operation and almost never see this person again after you go home. Often these surgeons work outside the UK, were trained abroad and just fly in for a few days each month.
Why not go abroad for surgery, I hear you ask. Whilst there are some excellent Plastic Surgeons working abroad and many of the best UK Plastic Surgeons (including at Perfecta) have done fellowships abroad and have trained with some of the best surgeons in the world. But plastic surgery tourism is not to be considered lightly and horror stories are regularly reported in newspapers and magazines. Many UK Plastic Surgeons have seen patients with disasters following surgery abroad.
