Research and Innovation

The Cadogan Clinic was founded on the principle of delivering the most appropriate, highest-quality care to our patients.

This means we offer the complete range of evidence-based innovation to our patients, delivered by pioneering specialists across multiple disciplines. Given the many treatments available for each condition, this is a promise other Clinics cannot match.

Our commitment to innovation is as central to us now as it always has been, through clinical research, medical education and the frequent introduction of ground-breaking new skin and cosmetic treatments. 

Our Founders

The Cadogan Clinic is a family business, run by its founders, Mr. Bryan Mayou, a plastic surgeon, and Dr. Susan Mayou, a dermatologist.

Prior to founding the Cadogan Clinic, Mr. Bryan Mayou introduced multiple techniques into the UK and globally across the cosmetic surgery, plastic surgery, skin laser and injectables, whilst his wife Dr. Susan Mayou is the co-founder of the British Cosmetic Dermatology Group.

They were, therefore, best placed to establish the first truly integrated skin and aesthetic Clinic in the UK in 2008.

The Clinic prides itself on its pioneering past, whilst committing to the technology of the future.

The Original Integrated Clinic 

We were established in 2008 as the UK’s first fully integrated Clinic in the UK and remains the only Clinic to be able to offer both surgical and non-surgical treatments under one roof.

This allows us to deliver:

Combination treatments

– truly complementary treatments.

For example:
+  Post-surgical laser scar reduction following abdominal surgery 
+  Pre-surgical skin tightening ahead of facial surgery 
+  CO2 Laser skin resurfacing during eye surgery

Appropriate treatments

- by an appropriate specialist, based on our patients’ needs - not a doctor's limited speciality.

For example:
+  Surgical and non-surgical liposuction
+  Surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty 
+  Ultrasound skin tightening and facelift surgery


In 2008, following in the USA, we became the first-day case-only provider of cosmetic surgery under general anaesthesia and now have more experience delivering day-case cosmetic surgery than anyone in the country.

In 2016 we became the only Clinic to be accredited by the British Skin Foundation, for our Skin Cancer and Mole Service.
