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.

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.

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.

LED light therapy is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that repairs, rejuvenates and revitalizes the skin.

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.

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the body's immune system mistakes healthy cells for dangerous substances.
It 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 affects the scalp, face and folds of skin (such as the back of your knees and elbows).
Skin cells typically grow deep inside the skin, and about once a month they rise to the surface. This process is accelerated in those suffering from psoriasis, which causes a build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.
In some severe cases of psoriasis, dermatologists may recommend medication and injections, which alter the immune response of the body, therefore suppressing the outbreak.
Whatever your personal requirements, you can rest assured that we will provide the leading consultants and techniques for your treatment at our state-of-the-art, purpose-built, central London facility in Chelsea.Get in touch

The main symptoms of psoriasis are
The most common form of psoriasis is plaque psoriasis, and occurs in roughly 80-90% of cases. This manifests in raised, thickened, silvery skin in plaques of various sizes, with smaller plaques joined together to form larger plaques. Itchiness is a common feature of plaque psoriasis. Scratching it will make your symptoms worsen.
The other 10% - 20% of cases can be one of:
Most commonly psoriasis forms in the following areas of the body:
That said, depending on which type of psoriasis is present, psoriasis can appear almost anywhere in the body and even be generalised across the entire surface of the body's skin.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for psoriasis, but there are a number of ways to manage the symptoms. Psoriasis treatment includes:
Topical creams and gels
Creams, gels and lotions which are applied directly to the affected area of skin are best suited for mild to moderate cases of psoriasis.
There are various different types of topical solutions that can be used to manage psoriasis, depending on the severity of the condition and the parts of the body affected.
Also known as phototherapy, this type of psoriasis treatment delivers a carefully measured dose of ultraviolet light to reduce the body’s immune response. This reduces inflammation of the skin.
Types of light therapy for psoriasis include:
Medications which are taken orally or injected are reserved for patients with the most serious cases of psoriasis which has not responded to other treatments.
Your doctor may prescribe a psoriasis medication for a short burst and supplement with other treatment types. It is important to discuss a medication plan thoroughly with your doctor.
Types of psoriasis medication includes:
You will meet with one of our highly trained dermatologists at the Cadogan Clinic on Sloane Street, Chelsea for an in-person assessment of your skin.

Psoriasis is a common skin complaint and affects roughly two percent of the population.
Psoriasis occurs when the body’s immune system goes into overdrive, with overactive white blood cells attacking the body’s healthy skin cells. This leads to an overproduction of new skin cells which pile up on the surface of the skin. This pile-up is known as psoriasis.
It is not known exactly what causes psoriasis, although the condition is not contagious and does not run in families.
However psoriasis is more common in people with white Caucasian skin. Psoriasis can affect people of all ages, but it is most likely to appear first between the ages of 15 and 35 years old.
Although it is not known exactly what causes psoriasis, there are a number of environmental factors which are known to cause the condition to flare up. These are:
Episodes of stress are known to cause psoriasis flare ups. The presence of psoriasis itself can often cause stress, leaving the patient in a vicious circle. Relaxation techniques, such as meditation, massage and breathing exercises, may be useful alongside your psoriasis treatment if stress is a known trigger for you.
Injury or Infection
Skin that has been injured or subject to trauma may develop psoriasis. Examples of skin injury include sunburn, cuts or insect bites. This is known as the Koebner response.
Bacterial or viral infections can also increase the likelihood of psoriasis developing. Children who frequently contract strep throat or other recurring infections are at a greater risk of psoriasis. People with HIV or other immune disorders are also at a greater risk.
Certain medications may put you at a greater risk of psoriasis. Medications that have been linked to psoriasis include lithium, beta-blockers, tetracycline, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen and malaria drugs. Please do not stop taking any medications without speaking to your doctor first.
Cold, dry weather
Cold dry air dries out the skin, making it more likely to split, crack and bleed. This can lead to infections.
Psoriasis can appear on almost any part of the body, but there are certain areas which are particularly prone to psoriasis. These include the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back.
The symptoms of psoriasis vary depending on whereabouts on the body it develops.
The main symptoms of psoriasis are:
There are several different types of psoriasis. Most people have only one of these at a time, although sometimes two different types can occur together. It is not unusual for one form to change into another or worsen. Cases of psoriasis tend to go through cycles, causing problems for weeks or months before easing. The different types of psoriasis are:
This is the most common form of psoriasis, occurring in roughly 80-90 percent of cases. Plaque psoriasis presents as raised, thickened, silvery skin in plaques. The plaques come in various sizes, with smaller plaques joined together to form larger plaques. Itchiness is common in plaque psoriasis, but scratching will make symptoms worse. In the most severe cases, the skin around the joints may crack and bleed.
This can affect all or part of the scalp. Scalp psoriasis presents as red patches of skin, covered in thick, silvery-white coloured scales. Some people may find it itchy, while others don’t. In severe cases, scalp psoriasis may cause temporary hair loss.
Characterised by small, scaly pink bumps on the skin, guttate psoriasis is typically found on the torso, legs and arms. Sometimes this form of psoriasis can disappear completely after a few weeks. It is most commonly found in children and teenagers.
Otherwise known as flexural psoriasis, this type of psoriasis is typically found in folds of skin where the skin touches, such as the armpits, breasts, buttocks and around the genitals. This form of psoriasis is characterised by smooth, red patches of skin that appear raw. Friction and sweating can make inverse psoriasis feel worse, particularly during the summer months.
This type of psoriasis leaves a patient with sore, pus-filled bumps on the feet and the hands.
Pustular psoriasis (generalised)
This is a very rare life-threatening type of psoriasis. This condition affects much of the skin’s surface and a flare up is often accompanied by fever, headache, muscle weakness and other symptoms. Immediate medical care is required.
Although rare, erythrodermic psoriasis is life-threatening and also requires immediate medical attention. This form causes intense itching and burning, causing the body to lose fluid and proteins. This can lead to dehydration, hypothermia, infection, or even heart failure.
Pustules appear on the soles of the feet and palms of the hands before developing into brown scaly spots which can be peeled off.
Pustules appear on the fingers and toes before bursting, leaving bright red areas of skin that may turn scaly or ooze.
In roughly half of the people who suffer from psoriasis, the condition affects the nails. This leads to pitted, dented or discoloured nails. Nails can become loose from the nail bed and, in the most serious cases, the nails may crumble.
This occurs when psoriasis affects the joints, causing them to become stiff, swollen and painful. The condition can get progressively worse if not treated and in severe cases, the joints may become permanently damaged. This condition requires immediate medical management.
What causes psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory condition of the skin which affects 2% of the population and causes an increase in the rate of the cell turnover.
The normal rate of cell turnover is around a month but in psoriasis, it can be as little as 3-4 days. This causes a build-up of skin cells which cannot be shed normally and typically presents as well-demarcated pink or red plaques with a superficial silvery scale.
The plaques tend to be symmetrical and most often occur on the knees, elbows and shins but can occur anywhere on the body. The scalp and flexures of the axillae (armpits) and groin may also be affected. Psoriasis can also affect the nails which classically have tiny depressions or pits and with separation of the distal nail margin from the underlying nail plate and may be associated with arthritis (joint pains).
Psoriasis is due to an immune system dysfunction and is not something you can catch nor is it contagious. It is mediated by T-cells, a class of white blood cells which usually fend off attacks from viruses and bacteria, but with psoriasis the T-cells attack the healthy skin stimulating the increased production of new skin cells and causing inflammation.
The cause of the T-cell malfunction is thought to be a genetic predisposition and environmental factors. There is often a positive family history of psoriasis and the environmental causes include:
Psoriasis is a chronic disease that flares and subsides intermittently over life. While there is no cure for psoriasis (meaning the condition cannot be eradicated completely so a future flare-up never occurs), there are many ways to manage the symptoms.
When are topical treatments most suitable for psoriasis treatment?
Topical treatment is best suited for mild to moderate cases of psoriasis and consists of creams, ointments or gels. Sometimes topical treatment will be used as a supplement to a larger medical plan for severe psoriasis.
These can include:
When is light therapy most suitable for psoriasis treatment?
Psoriasis often improves in the summer and on exposure to sunlight.
Light Therapy, also known as phototherapy, harnesses the power of ultraviolet light often in combination with topical treatment if topical treatment alone has not been effective.
Types of light therapy for psoriasis include:
When are oral or injected medications most suitable for treatment?
Systemic treatment for psoriasis through medication is typically reserved for severe cases or those which have not responded to topical treatments with phototherapy. This is because medication to treat psoriasis are accompanied by potentially severe side effects.
Your doctor may prescribe a psoriasis medication for a short burst and supplement with other treatment types. It is important to discuss a medication plan thoroughly with your doctor.
Psoriasis medications are either taken orally via pill or by injection. Types of these medications include
Does drinking cause psoriasis?
Research indicates that drinking alcohol is a common trigger for psoriasis, and can increase the likelihood of a flare-up in an individual disposed to psoriasis.
This is not always the case, however, and psoriasis can be triggered by a variety of other emotional, environmental and medical factors.
It is also true that people who do not drink alcohol can suffer from psoriasis.
Is psoriasis genetic?
There is evidence that psoriasis is genetic and it is common that psoriasis sufferers also have family members who suffer from the condition.
This is a very common disorder, however, impacting roughly 2% of the population and variety of other causes are also known to be associated beyond genetics, including an array of environmental and medical causes.
Is psoriasis contagious?
Psoriasis is not contagious. It is caused by an over active immune system, so cannot be given to somebody else.
Is psoriasis dangerous?
Typically psoriasis is not dangerous when experienced in mild form.
That said, psoriasis can be a very dangerous condition, particularly when symptoms are generalised (as opposed to localised) and very severe.
If you suffer from psoriasis you should seek a professional medical opinion.
Will psoriasis go away on its own?
Psoriasis is a chronic condition, which in some cases can severely impact upon a person’s quality of life. If left untreated, it is unlikely that psoriasis will disappear permanently of its own accord.
The goal of psoriasis treatment is to reduce the symptoms and end the flare up. If treatments are successful, psoriasis may go into remission.
However it is worth remembering that psoriasis is highly unpredictable. Remission can be a lengthy process and symptoms may be absent for months or years. But it can also be short-lived and symptoms may return within a few weeks.
Psoriasis is more likely to go into remission if it is treated. One of our psoriasis specialists will be able to advise on which treatment will be best for you.
Is there a cure for psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic condition. There is no cure for psoriasis. Some treatments can control the condition permanently, or even prompt long remissions.
But since psoriasis is linked to genetic makeup, we do not have a permanent cure for the disease.
Is my psoriasis treatment permanent?
Whilst your results may essentially prove permanent, treatments are only able to control the disease and are not able to fully cure it.
It will not be known at the outset whether your treatment is able to deliver permanent results for you
How can I tell the difference between psoriasis and eczema?
Psoriasis and eczema are common skin conditions, but it is often difficult for the untrained eye to tell the difference between the two conditions.
Eczema makes the skin red and inflamed, it may be scaly, oozing, or crusty and some sufferers may find that they have rough, leathery patches on the skin. Psoriasis can also cause red patches, which may also be silvery, scaly and raised. The skin is thicker and is more inflamed in a person with psoriasis.
You will need to seek a professional medical opinion from a trained dermatologist to understand your skin condition if you are unsure.
