Is there a best age to have plastic surgery?

You have to be at least 18 years of age. There is no preferred age from 18+ to have plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery. Treatments such as breast augmentation, liposuction, and rhinoplasty tend to be more common amongst younger people, while older patients are more likely to go ahead with treatments such as an eyebrow lift, blepharoplasty, or a facelift.

At each consultation we discuss what your desired outcome is and we evaluate all of your goals. During the consultation, we will also consider your age, your current health, your body type, your bone structure and your size.

Am I a good candidate for cosmetic surgery?

Ideally to be a good candidate for surgery, you should be a non-smoker in good overall health. Your body weight should be healthy. If you have health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes or heart disease we can discuss your options with you.

It is important that your expectations remain realistic and that you are open and up front about your goals and your medical history from the start. During your consultation we will provide an informed assessment regarding the procedures most suitable for you.

Is it safe to have plastic surgery?

There is always some level of risk when carrying out surgical treatments. Risks and complications are minimised and managed by our medical team. We provide and advise to follow all instructions before and after surgery.

We discuss everything with you at every stage to make sure that your surgery and your recovery go well.

What does ‘board certified’ mean?

When a surgeon is board certified this level of competency shows a high level of expertise and it’s a good indication of a surgeon’s knowledge and skills.

Different requirements are set by each certifying board. Our surgeons are highly qualified with much experience. Board verified gives patients increased assurance of a doctor’s ability and shows that the doctor has completed the necessary courses and training. For example a plastic surgeon cannot be recognised by a board without completing at least four years residency training in the field of cosmetic surgery procedures. Continuing education is also necessary and periodic exams and tests are necessary to remain board certified.

Where should I have my surgery?

It is essential that you have your surgical operation in a safe environment. Operating rooms can earn accreditation and can be a part of an established registered hospital or medical facility. A life support system should be in place to give extra assurance for patient safety. Transpire uses fully-accredited outpatient facilities.

How should I prepare for my surgery?

Preparation for surgery involves both the physical side as well as the mental side when it comes to preparing sufficiently. The process should start with a in depth consultation and during this time, before and after photos can be shown to the patient. Then your health background and current health status is reviewed. You should create a list of questions that you can ask during the consultation.

Will my medical insurance cover my choice of treatment?

If you’ve had an injury or if you’ve been in an accident, you may need to have reconstructive surgery. Insurance in this case may cover all or part of the surgical procedure. On the other hand, insurance is not usually involved when it comes to cosmetic surgery.

If you’re confused, our medical team can help you with your decision making.

Is cosmetic surgery considered to be an outpatient procedure? Is a hospital stay necessary?

A lot of plastic surgery / cosmetic surgery procedures are carried out on an outpatient basis. An overnight stay may be needed if:

  1. After surgery, you may need someone to help you to carry out basic tasks. If you live alone this could be very difficult.
  2. We may need to keep a check on your overall condition and health post-op if you have multiple procedures.
  3. Complications arise during the surgery.

Decisions are made on a patient by patient basis, and each person’s care plan will differ from the next. So we would discuss your outpatient / overnight stay requirements with you.

I’m not ready to commit to surgery yet. Are there other less invasive options available?

A lot depends on the treatment you are seeking. For instance we provide Botox and derma filler treatments which will plump up the lips and cheeks, as well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Results can last a long time but having surgery will bring permanent changes. Surgery requires recovery time but having injectable treatments doesn’t.

How can I get the best possible results from cosmetic surgery?

There are several steps you can take::

  1. A week before surgery, do not take any health supplements, such as vitamins, minerals or herbal products.
  2. For those who smoke cigarettes, refrain from smoking at least six weeks before surgery. This is to help with healing and to avoid medical complications during the post-op period of recovery.
  3. Aspirin or drugs with anticoagulation properties, can cause unnecessary bleeding during surgery. If you take these, we will discuss with you before surgery, ways to minimise related risks.

It’s essential for you to be in the best possible health before surgery goes ahead. If you become ill or you have any kind of infection or injury before surgery your treatment would have to be rescheduled.

Why might you consider cosmetic surgery or plastic surgery?

There are many reasons why people desire cosmetic surgery.

Looking and feeling better to gain a more youthful aesthetic appearance. Improving self esteem.

Transpire has a wide variety of treatments to suit each patient. Treatments can be combined to create the natural look you desire. We aim to accentuate what you already have and cosmetic surgery can do that with the right surgeon. We have to take into consideration factors such as your skin, your health, bone structure and your age.

Cosmetic surgery can help improve your self esteem & can give you a more positive outlook on life

When you look in a mirror, what you see is very important to you – we totally understand, it’s personal it’s a personal decision. Every year the number of men and women having cosmetic surgery increases globally not just in the UK. Image, looks, your identity.. all are important to those who want to have cosmetic surgery and go the extra mile. With cosmetic surgery you can add to the beauty you already have, and you can achieve the look you want.

Selecting a cosmetic surgeon

A surgeon’s skill and expertise is essential. Rapport and confidence with the surgeon can help to give you added confidence in the surgeon and the process.

A great surgeon should take the time to help you, to discuss, to listen to your goals. Alternatives, the approach to the surgery, and the potential risks should all be talked about in great detail.

Do your due diligence and carefully consider everything about the surgeon, the medical team, the care provided.

  • Does the surgeon have Board Certified recognition and expertise?
  • Has the surgeon got specific experience in the procedure you are seeking?
  • Is the surgeon on the same page as you in terms of what he can achieve versus your expectations?

A specialist will know exactly what to do, there won’t be any hesitancy.

How do I schedule an appointment with a consultant surgeon at Transpire?

A consultation will help you to make an informed choice. Your surgeon will discuss a plan which will be unique to you and also the next steps. Everything will be discussed and explained with you.

Anaesthesia – What do I need to know?

General anesthesia is controlled by an experienced anesthesia specialist. Each patient’s needs will be different. Everything is explained to you before the operation and during your consultation. You should not travel home alone after we decide it is safe for you to go home; it is always best to have someone drive you home.

Is cosmetic surgery risky?

Risk is attached to all surgical procedures not only cosmetic and plastic surgery. Any risks are always discussed with the patient in detail no matter which procedure you are having.

Why is it necessary for pictures to be taken?

With your consent, photos are taken before you have your surgery. Pictures can be used to plan everything out, and can also be used to show the difference before and after surgery.

What is a consent form?

This is a way to give legal consent to what will happen and this enables the surgeon to go ahead and carry out the surgical procedure.

Once I have had my surgery what will happen next?

Rest and recovery. First you will rest in our recovery area. The surgeon and the medical team will decide when it is best to release you. Via phone your progress will be monitored and our medical team is available to take your calls any time of the day. People heal at different speeds and it’s important to follow all the aftercare steps so you can get the best results and be completely rested.

When will I be completely recovered?

Different recovery periods come with the type of surgery you have. Pain can be controlled with medication and analgesics.

Dressings and sutures will eventually be removed and a comprehensive aftercare period will come into effect. In time healing will take place.
