Mons pubis reduction surgery, also known as monsplasty, is an invasive medical procedure to remove the excess skin and fatty tissue from the fatty pad sitting on top of the pubic bone. This fatty pad is known as the mons pubis.
A 'mummy makeover' is a combination of surgeries involving the breast, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs designed to restore the body to its original contours and appearance prior to childbearing.
Scars are unique to the individual and circumstance in which they are formed – they are technically the body’s natural way of healing from an injury. Scar revision procedures are able to deliver excellent results where scarring is especially noticeable and prominent.
Thigh lift surgery reduces the amount of excess skin on patients’ thighs, giving them redefined, slim and taut thighs.
At Cadogan Clinic we offer a specialized Brazilian Abdominoplasty, which restores the shape and skin of the abdomen area. This procedure is offered for anyone who wishes to remove excess skin on your tummy that is more difficult to lose through traditional weight loss or exercise.
An umbilicoplasty, also known as belly button surgery, is a surgical procedure which aims to change the appearance of your belly button, making it more aesthetically pleasing.

Female breast size is determined by several factors, including genetics, body weight and hormonal influences.
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.

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 Reduction)
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.
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 provides both female and male cosmetic surgery. Almost all of our procedures are suitable for men as well as women.
Abdominoplasty for Men (Tummy Tuck)
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

A number of treatments have been used to treat stretch marks and include creams derived from vitamin A, many classes of lasers, and other treatments.
Thread veins, or spider veins, are very small veins which can be seen on the skin as thin bluish-red lines, and often appear on the face and legs. Whilst thread veins do not cause any symptoms or pain, their visibility can cause distress and insecurity in those affected. Our cutting-edge dual yellow laser technology is able to provide a highly effective treatment that yields quick and permanent results.

A Dermamelan peel is a facial treatment designed to improve mainly stubborn hormonal based pigmentation such as; melasma, chloasma and lentigo.
Dermapen™ Micro-Needle Skin Therapy is a multi-function skin therapy that uses multiple thin needles to gently penetrate the skin to leave it looking firmer, smoother and younger. This treatment is most commonly used to combat scarring, enlarged pores, lines and wrinkles, loose and non-elastic skin, eye-bags and sun damage and age spots.
Non-Surgical Eyelid Reduction (Plexr)
Plexr (which stands for Plasma Exeresis) is a patented new technology which works through the non-ablative process of ‘’sublimation’’ to remove excess skin without the need for invasive surgical cutting
LED light therapy is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that repairs, rejuvenates and revitalizes the skin.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tighten and tone loose skin on the jowls, neck, under the chin, eyebrows and chest area. This is a swift treatment with no recovery time and will tighten and stimulate the skin from within.

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.

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.
There are two types of gastric sleeve surgery: a total gastrectomy, which sees the whole stomach removed leaving behind a ‘sleeve’, and a partial gastrectomy, where just the lower half of the stomach is removed. Sleeve gastrectomy will reduce the stomach to around a tenth of its size. Both methods will remove the area of the stomach that produces an appetite-increasing hormone.
Gastric sleeve surgery will help you to lose weight if other weight-loss methods have failed. It is a highly effective way to lose excess weight. It is popular too, with sleeve gastrectomy being the second most performed weight-loss surgery in the UK.
Unlike gastric band surgery, gastric sleeve surgery is not reversible.
Your surgeon will discuss all the risks and benefits of gastric sleeve surgery at your initial consultation at the Cadogan Clinic.Get in touch
The primary goal of a sleeve gastrectomy is to lose weight and reduce your risk of serious, potentially life-threatening, conditions. These include cancer, heart disease, stroke, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnoea and infertility. Carrying excess weight can also cause joint pain and joint damage, so by losing weight with a gastric sleeve you will reduce the risk of joint problems.
People who are overweight or obese feel self-concious about their weight which triggers anxiety and depression. It also means they are likely to avoid certain social situations. Losing weight via gastric sleeve surgery usually results in a marked improvement in a person’s mental health.
You would be considered a suitable candidate for a sleeve gastrectomy if you have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more, or a BMI of between 35 and 40 with an obesity-related health condition, such as severe sleep apnoea, high blood pressure or Type 2 diabetes. You must be fit enough to have a general anaesthetic and for the surgery to go ahead.
Gastric sleeve surgery should only be considered if all other weight loss methods, such as dieting and changing your exercise habits, have failed. You must be willing to commit to long-term lifestyle changes following your gastric sleeve surgery.
Your surgeon must be satisfied that you are in good mental health ahead of surgery.

The premise behind gastric sleeve surgery is simple: reduce the size of the stomach and reduce the hormone which causes you to feel hungry in order to lose weight.
Gastric sleeve surgery is carried out under a general anaesthetic using keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery. Around 80 to 90 percent of the stomach is removed, leaving behind a tube-shaped stomach, known as a gastric sleeve. This sleeve is similar in size and shape to a banana. By reducing the size of the stomach, this restricts the amount of food you can physically consume. The surgery also reduces the amount of hormone produced which makes you feel hungry. As a result, you will lose weight.
You usually lose weight more quickly after a sleeve gastrectomy than after gastric banding. People who have undergone gastric sleeve surgery tend to find they achieve more significant weight loss than with gastric band surgery.
Following your sleeve gastrectomy, you will need to follow a special diet and once you have recovered from the operation, you must commit to eating healthily and exercising more in order to get the very best results from your gastric sleeve surgery. Our expert team here at the Cadogan Clinic will be able to provide you with a dietary plan to follow and offer you the support and guidance you need in order to make a meaningful change to your lifestyle.
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 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.
Finally a comprehensive discussion regarding risks and complications will take place, alongside a discussion regarding 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:
03.On the day
Gastric sleeve surgery is carried out under a general anaesthetic and is done via minimally invasive keyhole surgery. Once you are unconscious, the surgeon will make a series of small cuts in your abdomen and a telescopic camera and surgical instruments will be inserted into these incisions. If you are having a total gastrectomy, the surgeon will remove a large portion of your stomach before stapling the remaining part into the ‘sleeve’ shape. The blood vessels that are connected to the part of the stomach being removed are surgically sealed. The incisions in the abdomen are closed using dissolvable stitches. The whole procedure should take one or two hours.
After the procedure is complete, you will need to rest and wait for the effects of the anaesthetic to wear off. You may need pain relief.
You should expect to stay overnight for a night or two. When you do leave the clinic, you must leave accompanied by a responsible friend or family member.
After having a gastric sleeve, it will take a while for you to be able to eat solid foods again.
In the first few days after surgery you will be eating liquid foods, such as thin soup, progressing to pureed foods for the next three weeks. You should return to eating normally around five weeks after your surgery. You should avoid drinking alcohol for four weeks following your gastric sleeve surgery. You should be able to return to work within a few weeks of your surgery.
You will need frequent medical check-ups in the months following your sleeve gastrectomy and will need to take vitamin supplements for the rest of your life in order to avoid complications such as malnutrition.
As part of your treatment with the Cadogan Clinic, you will have access to 24/7 on-call nurse assistance for the duration of your recovery.
You will experience rapid weight-loss in the first three to six months following a sleeve gastrectomy which may result in other changes in your body. You may notice that you also experience some or all of the following: fatigue, mood changes, aches, hair thinning or hair loss, dry skin or feeling cold.

What are the benefits of a gastric sleeve?
The benefits of a gastric sleeve are substantial and rapid weight loss and the improvement of physical and mental health and wellbeing.
A sleeve gastrectomy helps to improve cardiovascular health, dramatically reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke. Losing weight via gastric sleeve surgery can also cut the risk of cancer.
Sleeve gastrectomy can prompt obesity-related illness and disease to go into remission, including type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnoea and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Losing excess weight can also help to alleviate other health conditions including gout and urinary incontinence.
Losing weight can also help with musculoskeletal problems. Shedding the pounds reduces the pressure on the bones lessening the risk of fractures and osteoarthritis. It also means that you are less likely to experience joint problems in the hips, knees, ankles, feet and shoulders.
The weight loss resulting from gastric sleeve surgery can also help to improve fertility, cut miscarriage risk and reduce pregnancy complications in women.
Substantial weight loss not only improves physical health, but it also improves psychological health too. People who are obese or morbily obese suffer a higher rate of mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety. They may choose to avoid certain social situations or certain activities such as swimming, which will expose the body. This can also have a negative impact on intimate relationships too. This all feeds into mental ill health.
Depression, anxiety and low self-esteem can also trigger binge eating disorder. A gastric sleeve will help with this.
Your surgeon will help you to weigh up the benefits and risks of gastric sleeve surgery and help you decide whether this is the right weight-loss surgery for you.
How long does a gastric sleeve last?
A gastric sleeve is permanent. Because a large part of the stomach has been removed, the procedure cannot be reversed, unlike gastric band surgery.
However, the gastric sleeve can be converted to a gastric bypass or could even be combined with a gastric band if required. However this is major surgery and should not be entered into lightly.
If you follow all the aftercare instructions issued by your surgeon, including a diet plan and exercise plan, there is no reason why you can’t enjoy the results of your gastric sleeve for many years to come.

Is gastric sleeve surgery painful?
Gastric sleeve surgery is not painful. The procedure itself is carried out under a general anaesthetic. This means that you will be unconscious and not able to feel the incisions being made or a portion of the stomach being removed.
When you wake up after gastric sleeve surgery, you may find that you are experiencing pain or discomfort. If this is the case, our nursing team will administer painkillers. Once you have left the clinic, any pain or discomfort can be controlled with over-the-counter painkillers.
As part of your treatment journey with the Cadogan Clinic, you will have access to 24/7 on-call nurse assistance for the duration of your recovery.
After your surgery you may have some mild pain in the left shoulder as a result of the carbon dioxide gas that is used to inflate the abdomen during the operation. Rest assured that this is normal and the gas will disperse in the hours following surgery.
What is the difference between a gastric sleeve and bypass?
Gastric sleeve surgery and a gastric bypass are both major weight-loss surgeries. But although the goal is ultimately the same, they are two very different procedures.
Sleeve gastrectomy is a one-step procedure which sees part of the stomach removed. In a gastric bypass, surgical staples are used to create a small pouch at the top of the stomach. The surgeon then attaches this pouch directly to your small intestine, bypassing the rest of the stomach. Gastric bypass makes the stomach smaller and bypasses part of the bowels. This alters the signals sent between the bowel and brain that controls your appetite and how full you are feeling.
One of the Cadogan Clinic’s expert surgeons will be able to identify which type of weight-loss surgery is best for you.
How should my diet change following a gastric sleeve?
Once you have fully recovered from your sleeve gastrectomy, it is important that you follow the diet plan issued by your consultant.
Because you have reduced stomach capacity, you should reduce your portion size accordingly. You can eat most foods, as long as they don’t cause you discomfort (ie acid reflux), but as you will now be consuming less food overall, it’s important that you have a balanced diet, eating healthy foods which are high in protein but low in sugar and fat. You should include fruit, vegetables, wholegrains, lean meat and fish. You may find that eating small amounts more frequently during the day is preferable with a gastric sleeve. You can drink alcohol, but only in moderation, as alcohol has a very high calorie count.
Sometimes people may experience something called dumping syndrome after gastric sleeve surgery. This happens when particularly sugary or starchy food moves too quickly through the stomach and is 'dumped' into the small intestine. This can cause unwelcome symptoms such as a drop in blood pressure, bloating, nausea, indigestion or diarrhoea. Not everyone who has a gastric sleeve will experience dumping syndrome.
Can I stretch my stomach after gastric sleeve surgery?
Although your stomach will be around a tenth of the size it was before gastric sleeve surgery, it is still possible to stretch the remaining part of your stomach.
If you overeat, this will cause your stomach to stretch. Overeating on a regular basis causes the signals sent between the stomach and brain to become confused, so your stomach only feels full up once stretched. This cycle of overeating will lead to your stomach becoming permanently stretched and you will be in danger of putting back on all of the weight you have lost since your gastric sleeve surgery.
However if you follow the nutritional advice issued to you after your sleeve gastrectomy, and stick to smaller portion sizes, then you can prevent your stomach from stretching.
How much weight can I expect to lose following gastric sleeve surgery?
A person who has undergone a sleeve gastrectomy should expect to lose in the region of 60 to 70 percent of their excess weight within the first two years. Most of this weight loss occurs within the first 12 months of surgery.
However this figure varies from person to person. Some people may lose more weight while others may no lose so much. The outcome depends in part on how closely the patient is following their diet and exercise plan. Those who are eating healthily and doing regular exercise should expect to lose more weight than those who don’t.
More people tend to lose more weight more quickly with a gastric sleeve than with a gastric band.
How do I maintain my gastric sleeve?
A gastric sleeve is easy to maintain if you follow the diet and exercise plan issued by your surgeon. Exercise, eat healthily and eat smaller portions to avoid stretching your stomach.
To help prevent stretching the stomach, you should also practice eating slowly, putting a small amount of food in your mouth each time. You should make sure you drink at least 1.5 litres of fluid a day. But avoid all fizzy drinks as these make you bloat and contribute to stretching your stomach. Fizzy drinks like cola can also be very calorific.
After your sleeve gastrectomy you will have a number of follow up appointments here at the Cadogan Clinic to make sure you are following your plan. If you have any concerns, our team will be able to offer you help and advice.

Gastric sleeve surgery is a major operation, so it is not without risk. Sleeve gastrectomy has a higher risk of serious surgical complications compared to having a gastric band.
Risks associated with sleeve gastrectomy can include leaks from the cut edge of the stomach, breathing difficulties, blood clots and excessive bleeding. Long term risks and complications can include malnutrition, vomiting, hernias, low blood sugar, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and gastrointestinal obstruction.
General complications from any type of surgery include wound infection, bleeding, pain, scarring, blood clots (deep vein thrombosis) and an adverse reaction to the anaesthetic.
