“I had been thinking about breast implants for many years. From filling out the online form to getting appointment then operation and aftercare I actually found that the experience was better than I imagined. Mr Chris Dunkin was my surgeon, he explained everything that was going to happen and what to expect and he was spot on. From start to finish the whole experience has been amazing and the outcome is perfect. It has changed my life. I had no confidence at all and now I can go out and enjoy myself without being self conscious and embarrassed. I would like to thank Mr Chris Dunkin and his team for everything they have done for me.”
We want you to have the same experience as this lady who had breast enlargement with us but how do you decide where to go for your treatment?
Here are a few hints and tips to help you make the right decision.
What do I want doing and why?
you will get the best outcome if you have a clear idea of (a) the area that concerns you and (b) why you want it improving. For example, you breasts are small and empty after breastfeeding and you want larger better shaped breasts to make you feel more feminine and allow you to wear the clothes you want to wear.
At Perfecta we will help you focus on the area that bothers you most. After expert assessment we will discuss all your options for treatment and advise you on the best treatment to achieve the outcome you are looking for.
Take your time and do your research
There is a lot of advertising about plastic surgery nowadays, particularly from the high street cosmetic chains and even from cosmetic companies abroad. We would advise you to take you time and don’t rush into anything. Most of our patients have been thinking about treatment for months and sometimes for years before they plucked up the courage to make an appointment.
At Perfecta we will give you all the time you need to make the right decision. We’ll give you lots of expert information and help you make the right decision. We will never rush you into treatment – we do not offer time-sensitive discounts.
Choose a good quality local provider
If you are considering treatment then choose a good quality local provider if you can. You will usually find a local private hospital that has a good reputation and good specialist surgeons. Some of the high street cosmetic chains will see you for consultation in a smart city centre office and then ship you off to their surgical facility miles from your home. If you have any problems after surgery then you may have to travel all the way back.
Perfecta has clinics in the best private hospitals across the North of England, where you can rest assured the quality of nursing care, facilities, cleanliness and service will be second to none. We will provide all your care in your hospital of choice, including your pre-operative consultations, your procedure and all your aftercare. We would advise you to choose the clinic that is most convenient for you.
Talk to friends and family
You trust your family and friends so ask them if they have any experience of local hospitals and surgeons. A good local private hospital will have a good reputation locally. So ask around. Clients on Teesside will often say they chose our Tees Nuffield clinic because it was rated ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC (Care Quality Commission). Choose the clinic that is most convenient to you in Darlington, Middlesborough, Stockton-on-Tees or York and start your journey to the new you today.
Choose your surgeon carefully
Not all surgeons are the same. Choose a surgeon who is a Consultant Plastic Surgeon, with FRCS(Plast) qualifications and who is on the GMC Specialist Register for Plastic Surgery. This means they have a broad and expert training in all aspects of plastic surgery. Chose a surgeon who specialises in cosmetic surgery. Many Plastic Surgeons do most of their work in the NHS and only do a little cosmetic surgery – ask before booking an appointment and ask your surgeon when you meet them.
At Perfecta Cosmetic Surgery we provide the safest and highest quality care by working with the best Consultant Plastic Surgeon working in the regions premier private hospitals.
Look at before and after photographs
At Perfecta Cosmetic Surgery we will show you lots of photographs of our patients before and after their treatment with us. This will help you see the type of outcome we can achieve and the site and nature of the scars.
Will my treatment be cheaper if I go to a high street cosmetic chains?
The simple answer is no. The cost of cosmetic surgery is very similar across the UK at high quality providers. There is a lot of truth in the adage that you get what you pay for. Some companies used cheap PIP implants which have ended up causing misery for their patients. The private hospitals we work with are competitive on price and offer 0% finance. Ask our team about price matching and finance.
What about going abroad for surgery?
Cosmetic surgery tourism is not to be considered lightly and horror stories are regularly reported online and on programmes like Botched Bodies. At Perfecta Cosmetic Surgery, we have seen patients who have had serious complications after surgery abroad. We sometimes do revision surgery in these cases and this can be technically challenging and expensive for patients.
Do you do free mini-consultations?
We do free mini-consultations for people who are interested in finding out more about cosmetic surgery. These 5-10 minutes meetings give you a chance to meet a Consultant Plastic Surgeon and see the hospital. They are not a substitute for a proper consultation but they can be helpful if you are at the early stage of your journey.
Contact us on 0844 272 5951 for more information about a mini consultation near you.
