A breast reconstruction surgery restores the breast to near normal shape, appearance, symmetry & size following mastectomy, lumpectomy or congenital deformities.
A breast reduction, or mammoplasty, is designed to reduce the volume of the breast in order to leave the breast smaller and, in some cases, also more shapely.
Fat transfer breast augmentation, or a ‘natural breast augmentation’, or 'fat transfer to breast', is a surgical procedure designed to increase the volume of the breast using fat grafting techniques.

Fat transfer, also referred to as fat grafting and lipofilling, has become widely accepted as the optimal means of soft-tissue filling in all areas of the body, including the face, breasts, hands and buttocks
The fat transfer procedure (or fat grafting) removes fat from areas where it is unnecessary or unwanted and re-implants it into other areas. Find out more.
Natural breast augmentation (enlargement) is an effective alternative to traditional breast implants. Using fat-transfer techniques, the breasts can be enhanced without the use of foreign implant materials.
Fat transfer (fat transplantation) uses processed fat from your own body to re-contour and restore volume to facial areas that have become sunken with age, thereby rejuvenating your face and restoring a more youthful appearance. This may be achieved using the fat transfer technique.
Cadogan Clinic offers a wide range of facial cosmetic surgery procedures to help you make the changes you want, under the guidance of the very best surgeons.
Sometimes sagging upper eyelids can be the result of a drooping forehead and eyebrows. In this situation, treating the eyelids alone won’t provide a pleasing or natural appearance. A brow lift is a common procedure that can help solve this issue.
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
As we age, the skin around our eyes starts to lose its elasticity. It is not uncommon to develop eye bags, as our muscles relax, causing the lower eyelids to sag. In addition, our upper eyelids can also start to droop. This effect is often heightened in smokers or those who have had excessive sun exposure.
Chin liposuction, also known as double chin surgery, is a simple surgical procedure to help get rid of a stubborn double chin.
Chin Augmentation (Chin Implants)
Chin Augmentation – also referred to as chin enlargement – is an effective means to enhance facial definition and build a more exact profile. This is a simple surgical procedure, which uses implants to change the underlying structure of the face, providing a better balance for the facial features. Often, this procedure may be combined with rhinoplasty (surgically refining and correcting the shape of the nose) to help balance the facial proportions.
Some people have wounds that tend to overheal. Initially, they heal normally, and then they continue to heal producing a lump which is still growing, red, uncomfortable and itchy.
As we age, the skin on our face starts to lose its elasticity and begins to sag. Creases can become deeper and the jaw and neckline start to droop. Fat on the face, which makes it look plump and smooths out wrinkles, is absorbed as the years go by, so the face appears more gaunt. The rate at which this ageing process occurs varies from person to person and can be a source of frustration for those who want to look as young as they feel.
Lip lift surgery is ideal for people who are looking to add height and definition to the lip, rather than adding volume. However an upper lip lift will help the lips to appear fuller, without the use of fillers.
Look five years younger in 20 minutes with the Micro-Facelift Procedure. Ideal for patients wishing to reduce the visible signs of ageing.
Focussed on removing excess skin around the face, jaw and neck areas, the mini-facelift is an ideal treatment for people wanting to achieve a more youthful appearance without undergoing a full facelift procedure.
Neck lift and double chin surgery treatments can help to reshape the skin around the neck and jaw, reducing the appearance of sagging skin and other visible signs of ageing. At the Cadogan Clinic, our specialist surgeons offer a full range of treatments, including several they have pioneered themselves.
The operation is most suited to patients who have good bone structure who are not wishing to drastically change the appearance of their nose but are seeking slight improvements such as lifting the tip, correcting deformity or addressing the length of the nose.
Ear Reshaping refers to a range of common cosmetic surgery procedures designed to correct the size and shape of the ear and ear lobe. Many people who dislike the shape or size of their ears develop habits to mask the problem (e.g. wearing their hair long), often being unaware of the quick, safe and effective solutions provided by surgery. Typical procedures include pinnaplasty (to pin back ears), ear reduction (to reduce the size of the ears) as well as the correction of a range of ear deformities either apparent at birth (easily corrected by moulding the ear as it grows) or acquired later in life through trauma, piercing, surgery or cancer.
The nose is the central feature of the face and how it looks can determine how we feel about our overall appearance. Rhinoplasty refers to a group of surgical procedures that change the size, shape and position of the nose to provide an effective solution for the many people who are unhappy with the aesthetic appearance of their nose. It is also commonly performed as a medical procedure to correct breathing issues and to help alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnoea, and is consequently one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed across the world.
Gender dysphoria is a term used to describe how an individual feels a strong sense of disassociation between their gender identity and biological sex.
Female to male (FTM) top surgery is a surgery which is carried out on transgender men to create a flatter, more masculine-looking chest.

Oversized or irregularly shaped labia are common. Although there is no accepted definition of what is normal when it comes to the vulva, and labia truly come in all shapes & sizes, however they may be enlarged or significantly asymmetrical.
Vaginal rejuvenation is a combination of surgical procedures which can effectively improve the appearance, sensation and function of your vagina and surrounding areas, including the labia and perineum.
Vaginal Tightening (Vaginoplasty)
Vaginal surgery can involve both the tightening of the vaginal pelvic floor, as well as rebuilding and reinforcing the perineal muscles on the outside of the vagina. Often referred to as Vaginoplasty, this is a reconstructive operation and rebuilds the pelvic floor in cases where women have experienced severe stretching of the vaginal tissue and muscles, as well as the perineal body at the entrance of the vagina, strengthening the muscles and reducing vaginal laxity.
For many people, losing weight can be achieved by eating healthily and taking regular exercise. However, sometimes weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, may be necessary.
Gastric banding is a popular form of weight loss surgery, suitable for people who are very overweight or clinically obese.
A gastric bypass is an invasive surgery designed to help you lose weight if all other methods, such as dieting and exercising, have failed. It is a major surgery.
Gastric balloon is a weight loss procedure that involves placing a saline-filled balloon into the stomach, filling a large area and making less room for food.
Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of the stomach, therefore reducing the amount of food that can be consumed.
Cadogan Clinic provides both female and male cosmetic surgery. Almost all of our procedures are suitable for men as well as women.
After substantial weight loss, many men find their abdominal muscles are weaker and the skin in that area has become looser. An abdominoplasty can tighten the muscles and remove excess skin, leaving a firmer and flatter abdomen.
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is one of the most popular types of cosmetic and functional surgeries to correct hooded, sagging, bulging and tired-looking eyes.
The visible signs of facial ageing, such as lines, wrinkles and loose skin, can now be reversed with the help of both non-surgical treatments or (for a more permanent outcome) a surgical facelift.
It’s thought that around half of all men will experience some degree of hair loss by the time they reach the age of 50, with some first noticing receding hair in their teens or twenties. Androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness) is the primary cause. This hereditary condition first sees patients lose hair in the crown area, after which the hairline and temples are affected. Stress, illness and medication can also play a part in male baldness, a condition that can seriously affect self-confidence.
Liposuction is a highly efficient solution in a variety of areas of the body, leaving a more defined shape and more balanced proportions.
Male Breast Reduction, or Gynaecomastia Correction, is an extremely common procedure for men who wish to remove any excess, stubborn, unwanted chest fat. This straightforward procedure involves the use of liposuction to remove excess fat, tissue and loose skin to restore the appearance of a smooth, flat chest.
The nose is the central feature of the face and how it looks can determine how we feel about our overall appearance, making a rhinoplasty one of the most popular and common procedures in the country.
Ear reshaping surgery, also known as otoplasty, can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury.
We are experts in a wide range of Andrology treatments, in both elective and medical conditions.

There are many factors which contribute to ageing skin and when deciding on a treatment solution, these are important to consider.
Injectables work by relaxing the facial muscles that are responsible for wrinkles and is the most performed non-surgical procedure in the world.
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Hyalronic Acid and Sculptra are very popular, quick injectable treatments that can soften facial wrinkles, lines and fill out hollows to recreate the smooth contours of younger skin. Fillers are popular with those seeking a swift, non-surgical solution for ageing skin that has lost volume as the collagen that previously helped to shape and support it has disappeared.
Juvederm Lip Enhancement treatment is a popular non-surgical treatment to boost shape and volume of the lip via the injection of lip filler. As the effects of ageing take hold, lip volume depletes to leave a thinner, flatter appearance. Wrinkles and fine lines may also appear, contributing to a less smooth look, less defined borders and a flattened ‘Cupid’s bow’, creating an overall tired and aged appearance. Lip enhancement can provide a safe and effective non-surgical solution to reverse these symptoms.
A non-surgical face lift can be an alternative to surgery and is usually a combination of the best anti-ageing aesthetic treatments to treat the signs of ageing on the face.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a safe, non-invasive alternative to traditional rhinoplasty. Sometimes called the '15 minute nose job' as a quick treatment of dermal filler is all that is needed to reshape the nose completely.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial ageing for results that can last up to two years. It's used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds.
Tear trough filler is dermal filler treatment designed to level out the area below the eyes and diffuse dark shadows, restoring volume and minimising darkness.

Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterised by excessive sweating, usually in areas where there is a high concentration of sweat glands such as the hands, feet, armpits and the groin area. Excessive sweating can even occur when temperatures are cooler or at rest. It is estimated that two to three per cent of the population suffers from hyperhidrosis, with less than 40 per cent of those affected seeking medical advice.
Milia are tiny cysts, measuring just one or two millimetres in size, and are characterised by small, white or yellow dome-shaped bumps.
Babies’ and young children’s skin is very delicate, therefore prone to a variety of skin conditions. Luckily, with the help of an expert dermatologist, many of these can be easily brought under control and treated.
Melanin is the natural pigment that gives your skin its unique colour (skin pigmentation).
Psoriasis is a common skin condition that causes red patches of inflamed skin with silver-white scales, often on the elbows and knees but also commonly affecting the scalp, face and folds of skin (such as the back of your knees and elbows). It is an autoimmune disease, which is not contagious, and occurs when the body’s immune system mistakes healthy cells for dangerous substances.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that makes your face turn red and may cause swelling and skin sores that look like acne. It typically occurs in people with fair skin between the ages of 30 and 50 and is more common in women than men.
A skin allergy is an allergic reaction to a typically harmless substance that comes into contact with the skin, triggering a response from the body’s immune system.
It is important to take care of your skin - after all, you have a lot of it.
Verrucas are extremely common, with many adults and children experiencing these small, rough growths on their feet at some point in their lives.
Viral skin infections range from harmless to serious. But even at the lower end of this scale, they can still be enough to make life a misery for those who have one.

A cyst is a pouch-like capsule of membranous tissue that contains fluid, air, or other substances. Cysts can grow almost anywhere in the body or under your skin.
Lipomas are benign and generally harmless tumours of fat that protrude from the skin and occur anywhere in the body where there are fat deposits.
Mohs surgery, also known as chemosurgery, was created in 1938 by the American physician and general surgeon Dr Frederic E Mohs. The procedure is a microscopically-controlled surgery designed to treat common types of skin cancer. Mohs surgery allows for the removal of skin cancer with a very narrow surgical margin, which means there are very few tumour-free cells surrounding the cancer removed along with the affected cells.
The NHS and NICE guidelines recommend having your moles checked by an expert every six months – at a minimum. If you’ve had a mole removed, it’s every three months.
Moles are small clusters of coloured skin cells, which can form anywhere on the human body. Moles are usually harmless and people can live with them without any complications. However, moles can be cancerous, so if a mole looks suspicious it must be removed for immediate examination under a microscope (histology), to eliminate the risk of it developing further.
Skin cancer occurs when the genetic material inside the cells changes, causing an alteration in how cells behave. They increase in size and number, leading to the development of a tumour.
Skin Lumps (Warts, Moles, Skin Tags)
Many people suffer from lumps or bumps on the surface of their skin or inside the skin layers. These skin abnormalities may be classified as skin tags, skin warts or skin moles and can be easily removed by one of our experts for health and aesthetic reasons.

Liposuction targets excess fat deposits in the upper arm, and adjacent areas. Small, unobtrusive incisions are made in the armpit and on the back of the elbow. Your surgeon will then carefully remove the fat from around the arm.
Adjacent areas of fat deposits that can be treated at the same time include:
Skin Excision targets the loose skin that hangs down underneath the arm, commonly known as 'Bingo Wings'. This may be occurring in the patient as an existing condition, or caused by the removal of excess fat deposits following liposuction. The skin is removed in a long ellipse shape from the back of the elbow, along the line between the inside and back of the arm, curving into the armpit. It is important to consider the position of the scar to ensure it is as subtle as possible.
These two surgical procedures are often combined since liposuction procedure will often result in excess loose skin that requires excision. Liposuction only is most common in younger patients whose skin is still relatively elastic, whilst skin excision only procedures are most common among skinnier patients who have experienced meaningful weight loss already.
What are some of the main aesthetic considerations for your surgeon?
Two key considerations are symmetry and scarring.

Below you will find some key information to help you prepare for surgery and make necessary arrangements to ensure you have the support you need and that everything runs smoothly on the day.
The first step for all of our arm lift patients is to meet with the surgeon we feel is best placed to perform your procedure for a consultation. At the consultation you will be able to discuss with your surgeon what your hope to achieve from the procedure, as well as discuss in detail what may or may not be possible given your existing anatomy.
Your surgeon will take you through the options available to you, and which is the most preferential for you given your stated ambitions. Having established this, several key measurements will be made and standard clinical photography will be taken.
Some questions you may want to ask your surgeon include:
Finally a comprehensive discussion regarding risks and complications will take place, alongside a discussion regarding what to expect in the post procedure and recovery phase. Your previous medical history will also be recorded (including previous surgery, medications, allergies etc.) and an assessment of your fitness for surgery.
If your surgeon feels you are a good candidate for surgery, you are then invited to consider whether you would like to proceed for surgery or otherwise following a two week 'cooling off' period.
Within this period you are welcome to come in and discuss your potential surgery with your surgeon as many times as you like.
02.Leading up to procedure
If you choose to proceed with surgery, the next time you come into the Clinic after your final consultation will be the day of your procedure. Before admission the following behavioural changes are recommended / required:
In the 6 weeks before your procedure we recommend smoking is discontinued as patients who smoke have a higher risk of healing more slowly and complications (see FAQs)
In the week before your procedure you must cease taking Aspirin or any medication that contains Aspirin
In the 6 hours prior to surgery you must not consume food or any drink, other than small sips of clear fluid (e.g. still water, black coffee, black tea) which are allowed up to 2 hours before admission
03.On the day
On the day of your procedure we ask that you arrive for your admission an hour before the agreed start time of surgery. At this point a nurse will come and record blood pressure and other relevant vitals, you will meet with your anaesthetist and your surgeon who will make the final mark-ups.
Before surgery, the surgeon will measure up the arms to assess how much fat and/or skin needs to be removed. The arms are then photographed, with the skin markings, in various positions, front and back. The procedure can be carried out under local anaesthesia, but more usually under our form of general anaesthesia called T.I.V.A. (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) and takes between one and two hours.
The arms are bandaged after surgery to reduce bruising and you will feel stiff and mildly uncomfortable as you bend your arms. Most of the sutures used are dissolving to avoid stitch marks, but there may be a few to remove, particularly in the armpit, a week after surgery. Bruising lasts about 3 weeks.
You should not feel much pain during the procedure, but you may have some for a few days or weeks afterwards. You'll be given painkillers if you need them.
Following the procedure, you will recover in our ambulatory recovery rooms for between two to three hours, dependent on the scale of the procedure. Once our specialist nursing team are happy that your initial recovery is complete and you are safe to return home, you will be allowed to leave the Clinic accompanied by a friend or member of your family.
Once home you will have access to our dedicated on-call nursing team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This team of specialists are dedicated to your comfort and pain control, and are there to field any questions you may have in the immediate post operative phase.
We ask that you come in and see our nursing team 1 week after surgery to ensure your incision sites have been properly reviewed. At this juncture we also recommend you meet with one of our on site aestheticians to discuss ongoing treatment to support the healing and scarring process.
We ask that you come in to see your surgeon after 6 - 8 weeks for a final check up.

We are deeply invested in ensuring that every step of your surgical journey with us is as informative and reassuring to you as it can be. This article outlines what you can expect at each stage of the journeyThe Patient Journey
What is an arm lift (brachioplasty)?
An arm lift is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the size of the arm and eliminate fat deposits in the arm, as well as remove a surplus of loose arm skin.
The choice of procedure depends on the exact condition (excess fat deposits, excess loose skin or both) but will involve either liposuction, skin excision or both.
The procedure is carried out as a day case procedure usually under General Anaesthesia and takes between 1 – 2 hours.
There is typically bruising for up to 3 weeks after which you can happily wear short sleeves, and an end result at about 3 months. Scars are insignificant and managed by our Scar Management programme.
Am I suitable for an arm lift?
You may be suitable for an arm lift if you have:
Which areas can be treated by arm lift?
An arm lift focusses on the upper arm area, but adjacent areas of fat deposits and excess skin can also be treated at the same time
Who will perform my arm lift treatment?
One of our highly trained, elite plastic surgeons will perform your arm lift.
All our liposuction specialists have been hand-picked by Mr Bryan Mayou, our founder, and the pioneer of liposuction in the UK.
What are the various techniques for arm lift surgery?
There are three techniques that are used, with techniques relating to the size and scale of the operation at hand. Where possible more minimal techniques are preferred, as this reduces the length of surgery, the amount of scarring, and the amount of downtime and extent of recovery
What questions should I ask during my arm lift consultation?
Your consultation is designed to be the perfect opportunity to ask all the pressing questions that you have to your consultant, ahead of making a decision on surgery. It is vital that you are fully informed before making your final decision, and the consultation is, therefore, a key part of the education and decision-making process.
Some good examples of questions to ask include:
How should I prepare for my arm lift surgery?
No special preparation is required although it is generally advisable to do the following before any surgery:
How long does arm lift surgery take?
Arm Lift surgery should take between one and two hours.
When will I start to see results from my arm lift?
You should start to see results in the days following surgery. These will fully start to appear from around the six-week mark and improvements will be ongoing for the first 12 or so months.
Are my arm lift results permanent?
Your results will be long lasting and permanent so long as you maintain your body weight following surgery.
The ageing process will however continue from your new post-procedure point, and skin laxity will gradually increase over time. The ageing process will start from a far better point, however, so it should be many years before this becomes noticeable again.
Is arm reduction surgery painful?
You will not feel any pain during arm reduction surgery as you will be under the influence of the anaesthetic.
Immediately following arm reduction surgery, you may experience discomfort but any pain should be tolerable.
Your surgeon can provide painkillers for this and the majority of patients will no longer need them a few days after arm reduction surgery.
Is arm reduction surgery safe?
Arm reduction surgery is straightforward, safe surgery although you should be aware of all the risks and complications before going ahead with arm reduction surgery.
Some are listed above in the body of this web page, but your surgeon at your will go through these at length and in full at your arm reduction consultation.
Is there any downtime after arm lift surgery?
Downtime is fairly minimal following an arm lift and you should be back at work within a week or two, and resuming normal exercise in 4 – 6 weeks.
If you have undergone Liposuction, you will feel a little bruised and stiff for a few days but there is no restriction on movement. Any dressings can be removed in a couple of days or when they come loose, and stitches removed in a week.
If you have undergone skin excision you will have some dissolving sutures and probably some permanent sutures to be removed in 7 to 14 days. Dressings vary, but any bulky ones can come off in a couple of days. You should exercise to maintain full movement of the shoulder and arms, but this need not be violent to stress the sutures.
Yоu may соntіnuе tо experience ѕоmе mіld, реrіоdіс dіѕсоmfоrt and ѕwеllіng durіng thіѕ tіmе, but ѕuсh fееlіngѕ аrе nоrmаl. Sеvеrе pain, bleeding or swelling should bе reported tо your surgeon.
You will receive more detailed advice from your surgeon ahead of surgery.
Why is a brachioplasty sometimes referred to as arm reduction?
A brachioplasty, or arm lift, is sometimes referred to as arm reduction surgery as this procedure involves a reduction in the size and volume of the upper arm following liposuction and the excision of excess skin.
Of all the terms for a brachioplasty, arm reduction surgery captures the sculpting and volume reducing essence of the operation best, and hence its use.
Does arm lift surgery leave a scar?
Yes, an arm lift will leave a permanent scar, but a skilled Cadogan Clinic surgeon will endeavour to conceal this as much as possible. Arm lift scars can take some months to settle in. Scars can take up to a year to flatten and lighten.
What arm lift scars can I expect?
You can expect minor scars following arm lift surgery.
An arm lift, otherwise known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits on the upper arm. This is done via liposuction and skin excision.
Our expert surgeon will try to make scars as subtle as possible by confining scarring to the armpit. They do this by taking skin from this area and then pulling up the arm skin towards the armpit. However, scars may remain visible for some patients, particularly among those with excessive surplus skin or fat deposits.
Where are arm lift scars left?
Arm lift scars are mainly confined to the armpit area. In some cases, these scars can be visible under the arms between the armpit and elbow if the patient, particularly if the patient has excessive surplus skin or fat deposits.
During the procedure, skin is removed in a long ellipse shape from the back of the elbow, along the line between the inside and back of the arm, curving into the armpit.
Is an arm lift worth it?
An arm lift surgery is highly likely to be worth it if you have clearly defined your aims with your surgeon and he or she has made you very clear on what can be achieved via surgery in relation to these aims.
Arm lift surgery is an excellent way of targeting excess fat deposits in the upper arm. Arm lift surgery typically results in firmer, leaner, more slender arms, tightened arm skin and elasticity, sculpted, shapely arms and a more defined figure.
Arm lift treatment helps to restore self-confidence and can deliver an improved sense of emotional wellbeing following surgery.
