Gynaecomastia surgery is used to flatten and enhance the shape of the chest. We have three classifications of chest reduction surgery your surgeon will have discussed with you which type you require prior to surgery. Gynaecomastia surgery involves using liposuction to remove excess fat, and depending on your requirements, excess skin and glandular tissue may also be removed in order to achieve expected results. Following your procedure, you may be required to stay overnight at a Transform hospital.

You’ll usually need to stay in one of our hospitals for one night. We’ll discuss what we think is best with you before we book your surgery.

You can expect to feel some discomfort for several days following your surgery, however we will provide pain relief in hospital and also advise on managing any discomfort when you return home. If you have any concerns during your recovery, you will have access to our 24/7 patient helpline, so there will always be someone available to help.

The results will be immediately visible after your surgery, and if you maintain a healthy lifestyle, you can expect the results to last.

We advise you to take a full week off work following gynaecomastia surgery.

We advise to wait at least six weeks following your surgery before going to the gym, and recommend beginning with simple exercises, especially if your exercise involves heavy lifting.

Your surgeon will make every effort to keep scarring to a minimum. Incisions are usually kept within the natural contours of your chest, so any scarring will be as discreet as possible and will fade over time.

More details on chest reduction

When you come to Transform, the entire experience is designed around you and your needs. We’ll listen carefully to your aspirations for being the best you, and you’ll receive all the advice and support you need throughout your journey with us. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect.

Chest reduction step-by-step

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering chest reduction surgery, the likely costs and finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss what you ideally want your chest to look like, whether you are a suitable candidate for the surgery and the benefits and risks with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. They’ll go through the type of surgery you will need and the results you can expect to achieve. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. Male chest reduction surgery uses liposuction to remove excess fat. Depending on the result you want to achieve, it may also involve removing glandular tissue and loose skin. We have three classifications of chest reduction surgery, all of which are performed by our experienced cosmetic surgeons at one of our Transform hospitals: Grade 1 involves small to moderate gland removal. Grade 2 involves a moderate to large combination of gland and skin removal. Grade 3 involves a larger combination of skin, glandular and fatty breast tissue removal.

Following the procedure, you may need to stay for one night in the Transform hospital where your surgery has taken place, where you’ll receive the highest quality aftercare. Before you leave the hospital, we’ll talk to you about looking after yourself at home and make a follow-up appointment with your surgeon. We’ll also give you the number for our 24/7 patient helpline so you can speak to a member of our clinical team, day or night.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you through the recovery period. You may feel sore or uncomfortable for several days after chest reduction surgery, so we will prescribe some painkillers. In some cases, pain may persist for some weeks after surgery, although it is rare for patients to experience extreme pain. There will also be noticeable swelling and bruising for a number of weeks. We recommend taking a few days off work in the early stages of healing. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.

Cosmetic surgery to correct heavy, saggy or tired-looking eyelids is called upper blepharoplasty. The procedure removes excess skin and fat in the eyelids to provide tauter skin and help achieve a fresher looking eye area.nCosmetic surgery to correct bags under the eyes is called lower blepharoplasty. The procedure removes excess skin and fat in the area beneath the eyes, to help provide tauter skin. The procedures can be carried out under both local and general anaesthetic, and some patients choose to have both procedures at the same time.

As with all surgical procedures, there are some risks attached, but we’ll fully explain these to you so you can feel as confident and reassured as possible before going ahead.

If you have your procedure under local anaesthetic, you will be able to leave hospital the same day. General Anaesthetic will require an overnight stay at one of our hospitals. You may feel some discomfort to begin with as the areas will feel tight, however we will provide you with pain relief during your hospital stay, and also give advice on how to manage your recovery at home. You can expect some swelling and bruising in the first couple of weeks.

You can usually leave the Transform hospital the same day if you have either an upper or lower blepharoplasty. If you have both procedures, an overnight stay will probably be required.

No, although we do recommend wearing dark sunglasses for the first week after Blepharoplasty surgery.

Losing skin elasticity and muscle tone around the eyes is common as we get older, so it is important to understand that the ageing process will not stop even after Blepharoplasty. During your medical consultation, your surgeon will discuss with you the results you can expect to achieve.

Liposuction frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your surgeon any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Liposuction FAQs

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we know that each individual’s procedure is different and will be tailored specifically around the customer. This means that costs for liposuction can vary, but you will be given an idea of costs at your consultation.

Liposuction usually takes between one and three hours, depending on how much fat has to be removed and the area being treated.

After your liposuction surgery, you may be able to return home the same day, or you may prefer an overnight stay in one of our hospitals. You can discuss this, amongst other details, before your procedure.

The recovery time after liposuction is usually quite quick and you should be able to go back to work after a few days. We generally advise that you take a week off to ensure the best recovery.

This can be anything between three and four litres of fat per operation. If you need more fat than this removed, our consultants are likely to recommend multiple surgeries, or refer you to our sister company The Hospital Group for a weight loss consultation.

Liposuction can treat any area of the body, but popular areas include hips, thighs, stomach, chin, knees and the buttocks.

This will need to be worn post-surgery for between one and eight weeks, depending on the advice of your surgeon.

The results after liposuction are not immediate, but you will begin to see improvement after four weeks and then you will see a constant improvement up to three months.

All types of surgery carry a level of risk. For liposuction these can include bruising, loose skin, infection, bleeding after surgery and irregularities of the skin. Your patient advisor will go through all the details and provide you with a detailed guide.

Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound to target fat cells, whereas traditional liposuction involves surgery and making incisions in the skin.

Different people have different thresholds of pain, but usually liposuction isn’t particularly painful. In rare cases where some pain is experienced, it can be controlled for a number of days.

The scars are small (just a few millimetres in length) and generally fade within a few months.

If you gain weight after liposuction, the area treated can also gain some of this weight. However, if you keep a healthy lifestyle and diet, you can continue to have the same results post-treatment.

Nose surgery usually takes around two hours under general anaesthetic.

You may need to stay overnight in one of our hospitals. We’ll discuss what we think is best with you before we book your surgery.

Nose surgery is suitable for most people, but we’ll take a full medical history and complete a pre-op screening to make sure you’re physically fit enough before we go ahead with your surgery.

Yes, it can. Your Transform surgeon will talk to you about your symptoms and examine you so that they can advise on how they can help.

Recovery varies from patient to patient. Any incisions will be closed with dissolvable stitches, which will disappear on their own after a week or so. It’ll be at least two weeks before the bruising fades and several months before your nose settles into its new shape following surgery. Before you leave hospital, we’ll advise you on what to do and not to do to ensure you recover quickly. You’ll also have several post-op appointments to ensure you’re healing well and are pleased with the results.

As it takes up to two weeks for the bruising and swelling to go down after your op, many of our patients choose to book between a week and a fortnight off work.

Most rhinoplasty incisions are made inside the nostrils, so you won’t be able to see any scars. However, for some procedures your surgeon may make an incision in the skin between your nostrils, which is called open rhinoplasty. You may also require small incisions to be made at either side of your nostrils, which will leave very fine scars. Your surgeon will fully explain the type of surgery you’ll be having and outline any expected scarring so you’ll know what to expect.

As with all surgical procedures, there are some risks attached, but we’ll fully explain these to you so you can feel as confident and reassured as possible before going ahead.

Tummy tuck frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your surgeon any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Tummy tuck (men)

All types of surgery carry a level of risk. For an abdominoplasty these can include bruising, infection, bleeding after surgery and irregularities of the skin. Your patient advisor will go through all the details and provide you with a detailed guide.

At Transform, each patient is treated like an individual and so treatment plans will be tailored specifically around you and your needs. This means that a tummy tuck cost can vary, but you will be given an idea of costs at your consultation.

Whether you decide to go for a standard tummy tuck or a modified tummy tuck , your surgeon will discuss with you the best method to help you achieve your desired goals. During the surgery, a curved incision is made along the base of your abdomen, and excess skin and fat is removed. The remaining skin is pulled back into place and incisions are closed with stitches. During the procedure, your surgeon will also make a second incision to re-position your belly button.

The abdominoplasty takes around three hours and is performed under general anaesthetic.

You’ll need to stay in one of our hospitals for at least two nights following your tummy tuck procedure.

Your tummy will feel sore after surgery, and you should expect to see some bruising and swelling for a few weeks following your procedure. We will provide you with pain relief during your hospital stay and also advise on managing any discomfort when you return home.

It can take up to six weeks to make a full recovery from your tummy tuck, but this does vary between individuals. It may take a few more months for the final results to be seen.

Recovery time varies from person to person. We usually advise you to take between 2-3 weeks off work, depending on how physically demanding your job is.

There will be some visible scarring following surgery which is usually across the lower abdomen, but most people find that this can be hidden by underwear. Overtime, scarring will fade, although it can take up to a year after surgery before you can see the final appearance of your scar.

More details on arm lift

When you come to Transform, the entire experience is designed around you and your needs. We’ll listen carefully to your aspirations for being the best you, and you’ll receive all the advice and support you need throughout your journey with us. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect.

Arm lift step-by-step

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering arm lift surgery, the likely costs and finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss every aspect of your arm lift from the surgical method and recovery time to the benefits and risks with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable, and happy to answer any questions you have. Your general health will also be assessed and the surgeon will recommend the best course of treatment. If you only need to have excess fat removed, rather than excess skin, liposuction may be a more suitable alternative. An arm lift may also be combined with a buttock lift, tummy tuck, or thigh lift. There is a limit to the amount of surgery that can be completed on one day, but your surgeon can recommend a phased plan to give you the best results and ensure good recovery between each surgery session. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

Arm lift surgery is performed under general anaesthetic and you’ll need to stay in one of our Transform hospitals overnight after surgery. On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. During the two-hour procedure, your surgeon will make incisions along the inside of the arms and carefully remove the excess skin from beneath the arms, before stitching the skin into its new shape. If required, liposuction can also be used to remove excess fat and/or help streamline the shape of the arms. The surgeon will seek to conceal any incision lines within natural contours, to minimise visible scarring. Arm lift surgery demands precise surgical skills and a genuine appreciation of body aesthetics to help produce a good result.

You’ll stay in one of our hospitals overnight following your arm lift procedure. Our hospitals are purpose built for cosmetic surgery and all staff are specially trained in cosmetic surgery patient care. We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly and safely. Before you go home, your nurse will talk to you about how to take care of your stitches. It’s important that the wounds are kept dry and the dressings are left intact. We’ll also make an appointment for you to see your surgeon again to remove your stitches and check on your progress.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you. You’ll need to give your body plenty of time to heal and we’ll give you detailed guidance on the best way to do this. Brachioplasty patients are advised to take two weeks off work and avoid lifting or driving for four weeks. You’ll have a further post-op appointment so we can check that you’re healing well and happy with the results. Any scarring should be straight and neat and is normally beneath the arm where it is least noticeable. All surgery leaves scars, but these should fade over time. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.

Following the procedure, you may need to stay for one night in the Transform hospital where your surgery has taken place, where you’ll receive the highest quality aftercare. Before you leave the hospital, we’ll talk to you about looking after yourself at home and make a follow-up appointment with your surgeon. We’ll also give you the number for our 24/7 patient helpline so you can speak to a member of our clinical team, day or night.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you through the recovery period. You may feel sore or uncomfortable for several days after chest reduction surgery, so we will prescribe some painkillers. In some cases, pain may persist for some weeks after surgery, although it is rare for patients to experience extreme pain. There will also be noticeable swelling and bruising for a number of weeks. We recommend taking a few days off work in the early stages of healing. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.

Please view our pricing and finance page to read more about our flexible credit options, available via our partnership with a specialist financial provider. More info here.

After a labiaplasty, you will have a dressing put on in the operating theatre.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss what you ideally want your chest to look like, whether you are a suitable candidate for the surgery and the benefits and risks with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. They’ll go through the type of surgery you will need and the results you can expect to achieve. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. Male chest reduction surgery uses liposuction to remove excess fat. Depending on the result you want to achieve, it may also involve removing glandular tissue and loose skin. We have three classifications of chest reduction surgery, all of which are performed by our experienced cosmetic surgeons at one of our Transform hospitals: Grade 1 involves small to moderate gland removal. Grade 2 involves a moderate to large combination of gland and skin removal. Grade 3 involves a larger combination of skin, glandular and fatty breast tissue removal.

Thigh lift step by step

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering thigh lift surgery, the likely costs and finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss every aspect of your thigh lift from the surgical method and recovery time to the benefits and risks with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. Your general health will also be assessed and the surgeon will recommend the best course of treatment. If you only need to have excess fat removed, rather than excess skin, liposuction may be a more suitable alternative. A thigh lift may also be combined with a buttock lift, tummy tuck, or arm lift. There is a limit to the amount of surgery that can be completed on one day, but your surgeon can recommend a phased plan to give you the best results and ensure good recovery between each surgery session. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

Thigh lift surgery is performed under general anaesthetic and you’ll need to stay in one of our Transform hospitals overnight after surgery. On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. During the two-hour procedure, your surgeon will make incisions along the inner thighs, which may extend from the knee to the groin area. After removal of the excess skin and reshaping of the thigh area, the skin is carefully rejoined. Thigh lift surgery demands precise surgical skill as well as a fine appreciation of body aesthetics. The procedure is not just about removing excess skin, but also resculpting the thigh area to produce the right body shape and minimise visible scarring. If required, liposuction can also be used to remove excess fat and/or help streamline the shape of the thighs.

You’ll stay in one of our hospitals overnight following your thigh lift procedure. Our hospitals are purpose built for cosmetic surgery and all staff are specially trained in cosmetic surgery patient care. We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly and safely. Before you go home, your nurse will talk to you about how to take care of your stitches. It’s important that the wounds are kept dry and the dressings are left intact. We’ll also make an appointment for you to see your surgeon again to remove your stitches and check on your progress.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you. You’ll need to give your body plenty of time to heal and we’ll give you detailed guidance on the best way to do this. Thigh lift patients are advised to take two weeks off work and avoid lifting or driving for four weeks. You’ll have a further post-op appointment so we can check that you’re healing well and happy with the results. All surgery leaves scars, but these should fade over time. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline.

Tummy tuck frequently asked questions

If you’re considering abdominoplasty, you’re likely to have a lot of questions about the surgery itself, recovery time, aftercare and how much a tummy tuck costs. We’ve provided the answers to the most commonly asked questions below, but if you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, please feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) FAQs

A tummy tuck is a form of cosmetic surgery which is designed to make the abdomen appear slimmer and firmer. The technical term for tummy tuck is abdominoplasty and it typically involves removing excess or loose skin that can’t be reduced through exercise. Most women seek abdominoplasty post-pregnancy or after weight loss if they feel they have excess loose skin. It’s important to note that tummy tucks are not a weight loss solution and they won’t replace a healthy diet and lifestyle.

If you’re considering undergoing the procedure, it’s important to understand the tummy tuck risks and side effects. While this surgery is commonly performed by our expert surgeons, all types of surgery carry a level of risk. For an abdominoplasty, these can include bruising, infection, bleeding after surgery and irregularities of the skin. Your patient advisor will go through all the risks associated with tummy tuck surgery, providing you with a detailed guide and answering any questions you may have.

We understand that there’ s a lot to consider when it comes to abdominoplasty surgery, including how to pay for your tummy tuck. The cost of your procedure will be fully explained to you during your consultation, and there is absolutely no obligation to proceed. As well as the option to pay for your procedure outright, we offer a number of tummy tuck financing options, including a 0% interest finance plan which requires a minimum £500 deposit, and then 12 monthly instalments. We also offer loan plans over 12, 24 or 36 months at 16.9% APR. All tummy tuck financing options are subject to individual status and applicants must meet the eligibility criteria – you can find out more on our finance page. Our finance options are provided by Omni Capital Retail Finance Ltd who are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

What happens during your tummy tuck procedure will depend on the type of surgery you’re having. Whether you decide to go for a standard ‘full’ tummy tuck or a modified ‘mini’ tummy tuck, your surgeon will discuss the best method with you to help you achieve your desired goals. During the tummy tuck operation, a curved incision is made along the base of your abdomen, and excess skin and fat is removed. The remaining skin is pulled back into place and incisions are closed with stitches. During the procedure, your surgeon will also make a second incision to re-position your belly button.

At Transform, each patient is treated as an individual and so treatment plans will be tailored specifically around you and your needs. This means that the tummy tuck cost can vary, but you will be given a detailed overview of the price during your consultation. As well as answering your questions on how much a tummy tuck is, your advisor will talk you through the various payment options, including our flexible finance plans. Please read our finance page to find out more about tummy tuck financing.

Exactly how long your abdominoplasty surgery takes will depend on several factors, such as the type of tummy tuck you’re having. As a rough guide, the abdominoplasty surgery itself typically takes around three hours and is performed under general anaesthetic. You’ll need to arrive at the hospital several hours in advance of the procedure to meet with your surgeon and get ready for theatre. Following your tummy tuck, you’ll be in recovery and need to stay in one of our Care Commission Quality registered hospitals for a minimum of two nights.

You’ll need to stay in one of our hospitals for at least two nights following your tummy tuck procedure.

Your tummy will feel sore after surgery, and you should expect to see some bruising and swelling for a few weeks following your procedure. We’ll provide you with pain relief during your hospital stay and also advise on managing any discomfort and how to reduce swelling after your tummy tuck.

Tummy tuck recovery times can vary between individuals, but it can take up to six weeks to make a full recovery after your surgery. It may take a few more months for the final results to be seen. Rest assured that our team is here to support you throughout your recovery, and you’ll have access to our comprehensive three-year tummy tuck aftercare programme, too. Before you leave the hospital, we’ll give you a range of recovery tips, including managing discomfort and reducing swelling after your tummy tuck.

.

Tummy tuck recovery times vary from person to person. We usually advise you to take between two to three weeks off work, depending on how physically demanding your job is. Your surgeon will discuss this with you and advise on when returning to your job after your tummy tuck is appropriate in line with your occupation.

You’ll need to refrain from exercising after tummy tuck surgery for at least six weeks to allow your body to heal. We recommend resting as much as you can to aid your tummy tuck recovery and get help around the house to reduce the likelihood of over-exertion.

There will be some visible tummy tuck scars following surgery which are usually across the lower abdomen. Most people find that this scarring can be hidden by underwear and over time, it will fade. How long tummy tuck scars take to fade varies, but it can take up to a year after surgery before you can see the final appearance of your scar.

During vaginal tightening surgery, your surgeon will shorten the stretched tissues at the back of your vagina and pelvic floor muscles, as well as removing of any excess skin.

The procedure takes around an hour to perform and your surgeon will advise whether you’ll need a general or local anaesthetic. If you have a general anaesthetic, you should expect to spend a night in one of our hospitals before recovering at home.

You should expect the internal and external surrounding area of your vagina to be quite swollen and sore after surgery. However, we will give you pain relief while in hospital and will also advise you on managing the discomfort when you return home. An ice pack, wrapped in cloth so that it is not too cold, may also give you some relief.

We advise taking a week off work following surgery, and you should expect to notice the results of your vaginal tightening after around 2-3 weeks. Should you have any concerns during your recovery, you will have access to our 24/7 nursing team, so you will always have someone to hand.

Breast

frequently asked
questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your surgeon any questions at your consultation, but to start the ball rolling, here are the answers to some questions that our patients most frequently ask about breast surgery.

Breast enlargement FAQs

In the UK, the youngest age for breast implants to be considered is 18 years old. The breast augmentation age limit is to ensure that breasts have fully grown and developed naturally before any surgery is undertaken.

At Transform, our ‘boob job’ prices start from £5,990*; however, each individual’s procedure is different and so it will be tailored specifically to your needs. This means that breast augmentation surgery costs in our UK clinics can vary in line with your individual requirements, such as the size and type of implants you’d like.

Because of this, we place a great deal of importance on our free face-to-face, no-obligation consultations. Following our consultation process, your patient advisor will provide a detailed overview of our breast implant costs and you can find out about our financing options. Please view our finance page to read more about our flexible credit options, available via our partnership with a specialist financial provider.

 

Yes, you can. We have various breast enlargement finance options which you can discuss with your advisor during your consultation. These include a 0% interest-free credit plan which involves a minimum deposit of £500 and then 12 monthly repayments for the remaining balance. There are also breast augmentation financing options that allow you to spread the cost over 12, 24 or 36 months at 16.9% APR. Please note that all finance is subject to individual status, terms and conditions apply, and you must meet the eligibility criteria. Our finance options are provided by Omni Capital Retail Finance Ltd who are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. If you’d like to read more about breast implant financing, please take a look at our cosmetic surgery finance page for more details.

Transform offers two types of breast surgery implants – Motiva and Mentor. Both are worldwide leaders in breast aesthetics and implant manufacturing for breast augmentation and reconstruction procedures.

Mentor is part of the global Johnson & Johnson group and have over 30 years’ experience in creating high-quality breast implants. Mentor offers two types of breast implants which are approved by the FDA and available in a wide variety of sizes. This includes their MemoryGel implants which are round in shape, and MemoryShape implants which are teardrop in shape. You can find out more on our Mentor breast implants page.

Motiva breast implants are created by Establishment Labs, renowned worldwide for its commitment to customer care and quality. Motiva implants are made using 100% silicone gel and are available in over 500 different shapes, so you can choose the implant that’s right for you. You can find out more on our Motiva breast implants page.

During your consultation, you can discuss the different breast enlargement surgery options with your surgeon, including the size and types of breast implants that will best suit you and your body.

Breast enlargement surgery usually takes between one and two hours under general anaesthetic. Your breast surgery time will depend on the type of procedure you’re having. Prior to this, you will probably spend a couple of hours before the procedure meeting with your surgeon and being prepared for theatre. After the procedure, you are likely to be in recovery for a few more hours until you wake up from the anaesthetic.

You may be able to return home on the same day that you have your surgery, but many of our patients require or prefer an overnight stay in one of our dedicated hospitals. We’ll discuss what we think is best with you before we book your breast augmentation surgery, so you know what to expect on the day.

Although breast enlargement is a very commonly performed surgery, it’s important to remember that any surgery carries some potential risks. The risks of breast enlargement surgery include bleeding, infection, and implant rippling. We’ll discuss all potential risks with you prior to surgery and answer any questions you have.

Breast implants have an exceptional safety record and have been used in over a million procedures worldwide. Rest assured that we only use the safest breast implants in the industry, and all our surgeons are General Medical Council registered with a high level of experience and expertise. When you come to us for your breast enlargement, you’ll have access to a three-year aftercare programme as standard, with the option to extend to up to 10 years for extra peace of mind. If you have any other questions or concerns about how safe breast augmentation surgery is, then our surgeons will be happy to talk to you more about this.

Breast implants are not designed to last forever, but they don’t have a specific lifespan. Most surgeons say it’s wise to have your implants replaced between 10 to 20 years after the original procedure. Even if you’ve not experienced any problems with them, we recommend getting your implants checked over by a surgeon around 10 years after your surgery to make sure everything’s still okay.

‘Over’ or ‘above the muscle’ procedures involve placing the breast implant in front of your breast muscle, which means it’s more superficial and sits just below the breast tissue. This might be the best option for you if you have some breast tissue already or if you’re restoring fullness to deflated breasts. ‘Under’ or ‘behind the muscle’ refers to an implant that sits behind the breast muscle. This type of breast implant placement is suitable for women with very small breasts who have very little breast fat. This method reduces the likelihood of your breast implants showing and gives a more natural-looking result; however, it can be more difficult to place larger implants this way. Your surgeon will discuss the different types of breast enhancement surgery with you and get to understand the results you want to achieve. They will then recommend the best type of breast implant placement for your body.

After discussing the look that you want to achieve, your surgeon will make their recommendations on which size of implant to go for and explain their choice to you. Although your surgeon will be able to estimate your new breast size based on the implant size and the current size of your breasts, we can’t guarantee exactly what cup size your breasts will be after surgery.

You can expect minor scars after breast implant surgery, but these will fade significantly over time and become much less noticeable. Where your scars are will depend on the method your surgeon uses: one method leaves a scar under the breast hidden in the crease, while others can involve making incisions around the nipple or through the armpit. We’ll make sure you understand where any breast augmentation scars will occur before you book in for surgery.

Yes, many women choose to combine the two procedures and have a breast lift at the same time as their enlargement. Surgeons may recommend this if your breasts have lost volume and you want to lift them while also increasing the size.

Pregnancy affects breasts with implants in the same way that it affects breasts without them. This means that if you gain a lot of weight during pregnancy, the skin of the breast can stretch, and sagging may occur afterwards. You can read our post on breastfeeding after a boob job for information on how breast implants affect nursing.

The Breast and Cosmetic Implant Registry (BCIR) captures the details of all breast implant procedures completed in England by both the NHS and private providers. This is so they can be traced in the event of a product recall or other safety concern relating to a specific type of implant. Transform can add details of your implants to the register after your surgery at no additional cost. To request details with regards to your breast implants, please email [email protected] We currently hold information on all breast implants used by Transform since 2004.

Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) is an extremely rare type of non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL), a cancer involving the cells of the immune system. ALCL can affect 1 in 24,000 women who have breast implants. It is important to emphasise the extremely low probability of ALCL occurring in women with boob implants. Instances of Breast Implant Associated ALCL (BIA-ALCL) generally occur several years after the breast implant surgery; on average, eight years following the procedure. The majority of cases are easily treated by removing both the implant and the surrounding capsule, known as a total capsulectomy. Breast enlargement patients will be made fully aware of this condition as part of the consent process before having their procedure.

When you come to Transform, the entire experience is designed around you and your needs. We’ll listen carefully to your aspirations for being the best you, and you’ll receive all the advice and support you need throughout your journey with us. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect.

Chest reduction step-by-step

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering chest reduction surgery, the likely costs and finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss what you ideally want your chest to look like, whether you are a suitable candidate for the surgery and the benefits and risks with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. They’ll go through the type of surgery you will need and the results you can expect to achieve. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. Male chest reduction surgery uses liposuction to remove excess fat. Depending on the result you want to achieve, it may also involve removing glandular tissue and loose skin. We have three classifications of chest reduction surgery, all of which are performed by our experienced cosmetic surgeons at one of our Transform hospitals: Grade 1 involves small to moderate gland removal. Grade 2 involves a moderate to large combination of gland and skin removal. Grade 3 involves a larger combination of skin, glandular and fatty breast tissue removal.

Following the procedure, you may need to stay for one night in the Transform hospital where your surgery has taken place, where you’ll receive the highest quality aftercare. Before you leave the hospital, we’ll talk to you about looking after yourself at home and make a follow-up appointment with your surgeon. We’ll also give you the number for our 24/7 patient helpline so you can speak to a member of our clinical team, day or night.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you through the recovery period. You may feel sore or uncomfortable for several days after chest reduction surgery, so we will prescribe some painkillers. In some cases, pain may persist for some weeks after surgery, although it is rare for patients to experience extreme pain. There will also be noticeable swelling and bruising for a number of weeks. We recommend taking a few days off work in the early stages of healing. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.

Breast reduction FAQs

During your consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to get all of the answers you need from your surgeon. However, here are some of the questions our customers ask most regularly:

Breast Reduction FAQs

Each customer has different needs and requirements, which means that costs for breast reductions can vary at Transform. This is why our face-to-face consultations are so important. At this no-obligation meeting with your Patient Advisor, you will talk through a detailed overview of our pricing. You will also have the opportunity to find out more about our financing options.

There are several steps involved in breast reduction surgery, including fat and tissue removal, breast re-shaping and nipple shaping. Because of this, the surgery usually takes between two and four hours under general anaesthetic.

You will usually need to stay in one of our hospitals for two nights following a breast reduction. At Transform, we will discuss what we think is best with you before we book your surgery, so you know exactly what to expect.

Large breasts can often sag due to their weight, causing nipples to point downwards as a result. Breast reduction surgery reduces the size and weight of the breasts, resulting in breasts that are smaller and more lifted. Following breast reduction surgery, your breasts should appear in proportion to your body, whilst also appearing lifted and firmer. You can discuss the visual aspects with your surgeon prior to the procedure.

Changes should be visible shortly after the breast reduction procedure, but post-operative swelling may prevent you from seeing the end result for some time. Although the swelling will slowly decrease over the weeks after your surgery, it can take up to six months for the full results to be seen. Regular follow-up appointments will help you to monitor the progress of your breast reduction and ensure that the incisions are healing well.

You should expect some degree of scarring, but the extent of this will depend on where the incisions were made and the type of procedure. The position of any scars generally ensures that they are hidden when you are wearing clothes and after twelve months the scarring should fade significantly. Some of the scars will be concealed along the crease of the breast, but parts of the scar will remain visible.

Breastfeeding may still be an attainable goal following breast reduction surgery and all efforts will be made to preserve milk-producing tissue during the procedure. However, there is a level of risk that breastfeeding following a breast reduction may not be achievable. Such risks and concerns will be discussed in depth by your surgeon at your initial consultation.

The size and shape of your breasts should remain consistent, but this cannot be guaranteed if you gain or lose a significant amount of weight in the future. Excessive weight gain or weight loss may result in fluctuations in the shape and size of your breasts. This will be covered in your consultation, but if you have any specific weight goals in mind or concerns surrounding pregnancy, you should discuss this prior to the procedure with your surgeon.

If you have one breast larger than the other, you may be a good candidate for a breast reduction procedure. While it is common to have one breast that is slightly larger than the other, if there is a significant difference in size, it may be possible to create a more even appearance by having a breast reduction and reducing the size of the larger breast.

Back, neck and shoulder pain caused by large or oversized breasts can affect people of all ages. The minimum age for breast reduction surgery at Transform is 18. A key consideration when opting to have breast reduction surgery is whether you plan to have children in the future because a breast reduction may impact your ability to breast feed successfully. For this reason we don’t typically recommend that a breast reduction is undertaken prior to having children.

During the breast reduction procedure, a nipple graft may take place depending on the amount of tissue that needs to be removed from the breast. Once the breast is reformed in the desired size and shape, the nipple is positioned in the optimum location and grafted back into place.

In some cases, women find that they do experience a loss of nipple sensitivity after a breast reduction. This, and other potential side effects, will be discussed at length during your pre-surgery consultations.

Women who have a breast reduction surgery are generally satisfied with the appearance of their breasts and enjoy the increased comfort levels that come with smaller breasts and no further surgical procedures are required. Unlike other breast procedures such as breast enlargement where implants need to be replaced, a breast reduction shouldn’t require follow-up procedures to maintain the appearance. Unless you become pregnant or gain a significant amount of weight after a breast reduction, the shape and size of your breasts should remain the same.

They’ll look at your medical history and it’s wise to tell them about any pregnancy plans you have for the future, or weight loss goals you have in mind. They’ll discuss with you the outcome that you can anticipate, as well as any potential complications involved in the procedure. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who will perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

On the day of your surgery, you will meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre.

During the two-hour procedure, your surgeon will make several incisions in your breasts to remove and tighten the skin. The number of incisions will depend on your requirements; they are usually made around the areola and run vertically down the breast and occasionally along the crease of the breast. To get the results you’re looking for, you may have chosen to combine the breast uplift with a breast reduction or enlargement. Your nipples will then be re-positioned and the areola area around the nipple may be reduced in size to suit your new breast shape.

Following the procedure, youu2019ll need to stay in one of our Transform Hospitals for one or two nights, where you will receive the highest quality aftercare.

Your breasts are likely to be swollen and feel tender to start with, and it is normal to feel discomfort during the first 24 to 48 hours. There may also be some bruising at this stage. We will provide pain relief to help with any discomfort you may experience, but you should be up and around within 48 hours.

During the first two weeks you should notice reduced swelling, bruising, pain and discomfort. During this time you will also have your stiches removed.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you. You’ll need to give your body plenty of time to heal and we’ll give you detailed guidance on the best way to do this. The recovery period will differ from person to person, but we recommend that around two weeks off work may be necessary.

You’ll need to wear a surgical bra for the first few days and this will then be replaced with a sports bra, which you should wear at all times during the recovery period. You should avoid any exercise or strenuous activity for four to six weeks.

Boob jobu2019 recovery rates vary from person to person, but it’s important not to try and rush back into your day-to-day routine before you’re ready. The recovery process is gradual and it may take a few months for your breasts to settle into their new shape and for the scars to start fading.

If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline.

You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.

Eye bag removal frequently asked questions

If you are considering ways to help this area then you probably have questions, starting with the costs of eye bag removal all the way to recovery times and likely results. We answered the most common questions below, but don’t hesitate to get in touch if you can’t find an answer you are looking for.

Eye bag removal & eye lift surgery FAQs

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we know that each individual’s procedure is different and will be tailored specifically around you. Following our consultation process we will provide you with a detailed pricing overview as well as information about our flexible credit options.

You can usually leave the Transform hospital the same day if you have either an upper or lower blepharoplasty. If you have both procedures, an overnight stay will probably be required.

As with all surgical procedures, there are some risks attached such as bruising and infection, but we’ll fully explain these to you during consultation so you can feel as confident and relaxed as possible before going ahead.

Cosmetic surgery to correct heavy, saggy or tired-looking eyelids is called upper blepharoplasty. The procedure removes excess skin and fat in the eyelids to provide tauter skin and help achieve a fresher looking eye area. Cosmetic surgery to correct bags under the eyes is called lower blepharoplasty. The procedure removes excess skin and fat in the area beneath the eyes, leaving skin tauter.

If you have your eye bag removal surgery under local anaesthetic, you will be able to leave hospital the same day. General anaesthetic will require an overnight stay at one of our hospitals. You may feel some discomfort to begin with as the areas will feel tight, however we will provide you with pain relief during your hospital stay, and also give advice on how to manage your recovery at home. You can expect some swelling and bruising in the first couple of weeks.

Losing skin elasticity and muscle tone around the eyes is common as we get older, so it is important to understand that the ageing process will not stop even after the eye bag removal or eye lift. During your medical consultation, your surgeon will discuss the results you can expect to achieve.

We suggest you to wait a few weeks until the area has fully healed before wearing eye makeup. Your surgeon and nurse will be able to advise you on how the area is healing during your aftercare appointments.

No, although we do recommend wearing dark sunglasses for the first week after blepharoplasty surgery.

Rhinoplasty frequently asked questions

If you are considering rhinoplasty, you’re bound to have many questions on your mind, from the average nose job cost to what the procedure involves and recovery times. We’ve answered some of the commonly asked questions around ‘nose jobs’ below, but if you can’t find the answer you are looking for, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help.

Nose surgery (rhinoplasty) FAQs

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a ‘nose job’, is a type of cosmetic surgery that alters the appearance of the nose. Typically, rhinoplasty surgery involves adjusting or reshaping bone, cartilage and tissue to change the shape and/or size of the nose. There are many different types of nose jobs available which you can find out more about below.

There are several different types of nose jobs, each tackling different concerns. Reduction rhinoplasty, also known as nose reduction surgery, makes the nose smaller. Septorhinoplasty alters the external appearance and the internal septum, while rhinotip or nose tip surgery alters the tip of the nose and nostrils. Whether you’re thinking about having a nose job to make your nostrils smaller or considering nose straightening surgery, your surgeon will discuss the right method for you and the results you can realistically expect.

Most rhinoplasty incisions are made inside the nostrils, so you won’t be able to see any scars. However, for some types of nose jobs your surgeon may make an incision in the skin between your nostrils, which is called ‘open rhinoplasty’. You may also require small incisions to be made at either side of your nostrils, which will leave very fine scars. Your surgeon will fully explain the type of nose surgery you will be having and outline any expected scarring so you will know what to expect.

Yes, it can. Your rhinoplasty surgeon will talk to you about your symptoms and examine you so that they can advise on how they can help.

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we know that each individual procedure and person is different, and so your treatment will be tailored specifically to you. This means that the nose job cost can vary depending on individual requirements. During your consultation you will be given a detailed overview of how much your rhinoplasty will cost in our UK clinics, as well as plenty of information regarding our flexible credit options. We are happy to talk you through getting your nose job on finance, which means you can spread the cost over monthly repayments. Please take a look at our finance page to find out more about our rhinoplasty finance options.

Absolutely – we are pleased to offer several options for financing rhinoplasty surgery, so you can choose a payment plan that suits you. During your consultation, your advisor will talk you through the nose job price and the various finance options available.

For instance, if you’d like to spread the nose surgery cost over one year, there’s a 0% finance option which requires a minimum £500 deposit and then 12 monthly repayments. Or we also offer loan plans that spread the rhinoplasty cost over longer periods, such as 12, 24 or 36 months at 16.9% APR. Our rhinoplasty finance options are provided by Omni Capital Retail Finance Limited who are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Terms and conditions apply and to be eligible for finance you must meet the eligibility criteria – you can find out more about finance options on our cosmetic surgery finance page.

Many people ask us how long a rhinoplasty surgery is, but it will vary according to the procedure you have. Typically, rhinoplasty surgery takes around two hours under general anaesthetic. However, you will probably require an overnight stay in hospital following the procedure, and so you should allow for a full 24 hours for the whole process.

Rhinoplasty recovery times vary from person to person. Any incisions will be closed with dissolvable stitches, which will disappear on their own after a week or so. It will be at least two weeks before the bruising fades, and several months before your nose settles into its new shape following surgery. Before you leave hospital, we will advise you on what to do and what not to do after rhinoplasty to ensure that you recover quickly. You will also have several post-operative appointments so that we can make sure your nose job recovery is going well and you are pleased with the results.

After your nose surgery, you may need to stay overnight in one of our hospitals. We will discuss our recommendation with you before we book your surgery.

As it takes up to two weeks for the bruising and swelling to go down after your nose surgery, many of our customers choose to book between a week and a fortnight off work. However, this will depend on the physical demands of your job and your patient advisor can discuss this in more detail.

Nose cosmetic surgery is suitable for most people, but we will take a full medical history and complete a pre-op screening to make sure you are physically fit enough before we go ahead with your surgery.

As with all surgical procedures, there are some risks attached to rhinoplasty. For instance, bruising and swelling after rhinoplasty are common. Other potential risks include infection, complications from anaesthetic and scarring. Our advisor will fully explain all rhinoplasty risks to you, so you feel as confident and reassured as possible before going ahead with the procedure.

Following the procedure, you may need to stay for one night in the Transform hospital where your surgery has taken place, where you’ll receive the highest quality aftercare. Before you leave the hospital, we’ll talk to you about looking after yourself at home and make a follow-up appointment with your surgeon. We’ll also give you the number for our 24/7 patient helpline so you can speak to a member of our clinical team, day or night.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you through the recovery period. You may feel sore or uncomfortable for several days after chest reduction surgery, so we will prescribe some painkillers. In some cases, pain may persist for some weeks after surgery, although it is rare for patients to experience extreme pain. There will also be noticeable swelling and bruising for a number of weeks. We recommend taking a few days off work in the early stages of healing. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.

Liposuction frequently asked questions

If you’re considering liposuction, you’re likely to have a lot of questions about the procedure, from where you can have it and how much it costs, to recovery time and scarring. We have answered many of the most popular questions about liposuction below, but if you have any more then please feel free to request a brochure or contact us.

Liposuction FAQs

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we know that each individual’s procedure is different and will be tailored specifically around the customer. This means that costs for liposuction can vary, but you will be given an idea of costs at your consultation.

Liposuction usually takes between one and three hours, depending on how much fat has to be removed and the area being treated.

After your liposuction surgery, you may be able to return home the same day, or you may prefer an overnight stay in one of our hospitals. You can discuss this, amongst other details, before your procedure.

The recovery time after liposuction is usually quite quick and you should be able to go back to work after a few days. We generally advise that you take a week off to ensure the best recovery.

This can be anything between three and four litres of fat per operation. If you need more fat than this removed, our consultants are likely to recommend multiple surgeries, or refer you to our sister company The Hospital Group for a weight loss consultation.

Liposuction can treat any area of the body, but popular areas include hips, thighs, stomach, chin, knees and the buttocks.

This will need to be worn post-surgery for between one and eight weeks, depending on the advice of your surgeon.

The results after liposuction are not immediate, but you will begin to see improvement after four weeks and then you will see a constant improvement up to three months.

All types of surgery carry a level of risk. For liposuction these can include bruising, loose skin, infection, bleeding after surgery and irregularities of the skin. Your patient advisor will go through all the details and provide you with a detailed guide.

Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound to target fat cells, whereas traditional liposuction involves surgery and making incisions in the skin.

Different people have different thresholds of pain, but usually liposuction isnu2019t particularly painful. In rare cases where some pain is experienced, it can be controlled for a number of days.

The scars are small (just a few millimetres in length) and generally fade within a few months.

If you gain weight after liposuction, the area treated can also gain some of this weight. However, if you keep a healthy lifestyle and diet, you can continue to have the same results post-treatment.

Vaser liposuction frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your surgeon any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Vaser liposuction FAQs

Vaser lipo is a fat removal procedure that uses ultrasound technology to target unwanted fat cells. It offers an easy way for the surgeon to remove fat without causing bleeding or performing invasive surgery, making it a popular choice among women who aspire to a more sculptured physique. At Transform, we offer two different types of Vaser liposuction – Vaser surgery and non-surgical Vaser lipo. During your consultation, your surgeon will be able to discuss the right option for you depending on the area you’d like treated and the results you’d like to achieve.

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we understand that each individual’s procedure is different and will be tailored specifically around the patient. Because of this, we place a great deal of importance on our free face-to-face, no obligation consultations. Following our consultation process your patient advisor will provide a detailed pricing overview around the particular procedure. Please view our pricing and finance page to read more about our flexible credit options, available via our partnership with a specialist financial provider. More info here.

Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound to target the fat cells, which is an easier way for the surgeon to remove fat without bleeding or invasive surgery.

Vaser lipo is a highly effective way to reduce the amount of fat in stubborn areas and deliver a better reduction of the skin. One of the main benefits of Vaser liposuction is it requires minimal invasion, so bruising, bleeding and scarring is often reduced compared to traditional liposuction. It’s suitable for both large and small parts of the body, and our surgeons may be able to work on multiple areas during one procedure. Another benefit of our non-invasive Vaser lipo method is that it can be performed using local anaesthetic – meaning recovery time is quicker and you may be discharged from our clinic earlier than you would following general anaesthetic.

If you have some localised areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise, Vaser liposuction may be suitable. During your consultation, you can discuss why you’re interested in having Vaser lipo, the results you’d like and your medical history with your surgeon. They’ll then let you know if they think this is the right procedure for you and whether Vaser surgery or the non-invasive method would be most suitable.

Vaser liposuction usually takes between one and three hours, depending on how much fat has to be removed and the area being treated.

Typically, a traditional liposuction procedure may involve using a laser pulse or a pressurised water jet to break up the fat cells. The surgeon would make a small incision and insert a suction tube to remove the excess fat, then stitch up the area. The main difference with Vaser liposuction is that it uses ultrasound technology to target fat cells, which makes it easier to remove fat without strain or damage to the skin and surrounding tissue. Small incisions are made to allow the fat cells to be sucked out, and these are often too small to require stitches.

Vaser liposuction will reduce the amount of fat in stubborn areas and deliver a better reduction of the skin.

If you have some localised areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise in order to lose the fat, vaser liposuction may be suitable.

This can be anything between three and four litres of fat per operation. For anything more than this, we would recommend multiple surgeries.

The great thing about Vaser liposuction is it can treat any area of the body, but popular areas include the hips, thighs, stomach, chin, knees and bottom. It’s often possible to have multiple parts of the body treated during one procedure, depending on the size of the areas. You can discuss the areas you’d like treated with your surgeon during your consultation and figure out the best treatment plan for you.

If you’re thinking about having Vaser, it’s important to have a full understanding of the risks and complications that may arise. While our expert surgeons have a huge amount of expertise and experience with these procedures, all types of surgery carry a level of risk. For Vaser liposuction these include bruising, loose skin, infection, bleeding after surgery, and irregularities of the skin. Your surgeon assistant will go through all the details and answer any questions you have, as well as providing you with a guide.

This will depend on the type of Vaser liposuction you choose to have. For instance, if you have non-invasive Vaser lipo and a local anaesthetic, you may be able to return home the same day. On the other hand, if you have a long surgery under general anaesthetic, you may need to stay overnight in one of our purpose-built hospitals − but rest assured, they have the highest quality facilities and are all CQC registered. We’ll discuss what we think is best with you before we book your surgery.

The amount of time it takes you to recover following Vaser fat removal surgery will depend on several factors, such as the type of anaesthetic you had and the area you had treated. Usually, the recovery time after Vaser liposuction is quite quick and you should be able to go back to work after a few days.

You will either be given a local or general anaesthetic for your Vaser liposuction, so you won’t feel any pain throughout the procedure. It’s likely you’ll be a bit sore during your recovery, but any pain can be controlled, and we’ll discuss aftercare with you during your consultation. Of course, different people have different thresholds of pain, but usually Vaser liposuction recovery isn’t particularly painful.

Yes, you will need to wear a pressure garment post-surgery for between two and six weeks, depending on the advice of your surgeon. This is an essential part of the healing process following your Vaser lipo, and your nurse will talk you through how to wear it and other aftercare tips before you head home.

Typically, Vaser lipo scars are small (just a few millimetres in length) and generally fade within a few months.

If you gain weight after Vaser liposuction, the area treated can also gain some of this weight. However, if you keep to a healthy lifestyle and diet, you can continue to have the same results post-treatment. It’s important to note that Vaser lipo is not intended as a quick fix for weight loss and should be undertaken when you’re at your optimal weight.

Many of our patients ask “does Vaser lipo tighten skin?” and while it does help to firm looseness, it cannot effectively remove large areas of excess skin. If this is a concern for you, you can discuss this with your surgeon assistant or surgeon who’ll be happy to recommend the right course of treatment.

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we understand that each individual’s procedure is different, so our treatment plans are tailored specifically around your unique needs. Because of this, the Vaser lipo cost can vary, depending on the area(s) you’re having treated. We place a great deal of importance on our free face-to-face, no-obligation consultations, during which you can discuss your requirements with your surgeon assistant. They’ll then provide a detailed overview of the Vaser liposuction cost and the various payment plans we have available. As well as being able to pay for your procedure outright, you can choose to spread the Vaser lipo cost over several years via our flexible finance plans.

Facial peels frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your practitioner or nurse any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Facial peels FAQs

The acids within the peel work by bringing the pH of the skin to an optimum acidity level. This action chemically loosens the “glue” that binds the dead and damaged cells, causing exfoliation and allowing the promotion of new cell growth.

We provide a range of medical formulation chemical peel treatments of varying strengths. Each is safe and designed to penetrate and exfoliate to a particular depth. These range from light peels such as Epionce refresh, Obagi Blue Radiance and Glycolic right through to deep phenol peels that can help to reduce facial wrinkles or treat sun damaged skin.

Each peel has a different strength of active ingredients and therefore the treatment itself varies. Generally, the treatment involves the preparation of the area to be treated and the careful application of the chemical peel. It will be removed after a specific time and then a cream may then be applied.

Milder ‘superficial’ peels, such as the glycolic peel, can be used to reveal fresher looking, brighter and rejuvenated skin, while stronger facial peels work at a deeper level targeting wrinkles, scars and blemishes.

The whole process usually takes around 30 minutes.

Some chemical peels are single skin peel treatments and involve no down time. Others require a course of treatments, some of which have little or no down time, others with a maximum of 7 to 10 day recovery period. You should always use sunblock post-treatment, as your skin can be quite sensitive. After any chemical peel you can leave the clinic as soon as you feel comfortable to do so.

Facial peels can be used as regular skin treatments to help keep skin looking smoother and fresher. Our fully qualified practitioners will assess your skin and provide recommendations for ongoing or regular treatments. • Entry level peels such as Glycolic, Epionce Lite Refresh, Obagi Blue Peel radiance peels are recommended once every two weeks and are most effective when a course of peels is completed (usually 3-6 peels) • Epionce corrective facial peels, once every four weeks to maintain a glowing skin • Easy TCA peels are recommended once a week or once every two weeks – with a total of four peels in a course

Microskin FAQs

Microskin FAQs

Microskin treatments are available from 10 Transform clinics: Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, London Cornhill, London Weymouth Street, Manchester City Centre, Newcastle, The Pines Hospital (Manchester), The Riverside Hospital (London), and Sheffield.

Microskin is a camouflage colour correction treatment. A typical consultation would last between 45 minutes and an hour. During your consultation, our trained aesthetician will scan your skin to provide us with an exact colour match. There are 35 colours to choose from in the Microskin range, so you can be confident of achieving a natural look.
Once the colour of your Microskin treatment has been determined, the aesthetician will show you how to apply the product to your skin and provide you with three months’ worth of products. After three months, you can either reattend the clinic or buy your next three months’ supply online and have it delivered straight to your door. At the end of your second cycle, six months after your initial appointment, you will probably be advised to revisit your nearest Transform clinic for another scan. This will make sure you are still using the closest colour match if your skin colour has changed in the six months since your first scan.

Microskin starts to deliver results immediately.

Yes. Microskin is completely waterproof and each application lasts for up to five days. It does not induce perspiration and you can continue with normal activities, such as swimming and sports. Using microksin allows you to live your life without your skin condition/concern holding you back!

Microskin meets UK, EU, TGA and FDA standards. There have been no recorded reactions against the Microskin formula anywhere in the world. It can be applied to patients of any age.

Your first Microskin treatment, including your consultation, training and first three months’ supply, normally costs £399. Call us on 0330 053 9115 to find out more or click here to start your conversation.

A typical HydraFacial treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes. First, your skin is exfoliated a process that removes any dead skin cells. At the same time, your skin receives botanical cleansers to start to soften impurities and start the hydration process. Next, a solution that softens any blockages in your pores is given before any blackheads and serum deposits are extracted using antibacterial honey extract. Vitamins and antioxidants are then put into the skin, giving your skin the nourishment, it needs and plumping up wrinkles to reduce their appearance. Finally, red and infrared light is used to calm any redness created on your skin giving you the ultimate in clean, smooth, soft and clear skin.

HydraFacial starts to deliver results immediately. In fact, you might start to notice a difference after your very first treatment. For best results, HydraFacial is recommended as a monthly treatment as part of your usual skincare routine.

There is no recovery period needed for HydraFacial treatments. You are free to continue with your day as soon as your treatment has finished.

A HydraFacial is a skin rejuvenation facial that leaves your skin glowing. The facial includes exfoliation, softening of any blockages in your pores and a red and infrared light treatment, leaving you with the ultimate clean, smooth skin.

HydraFacial treatments are effective for every skin type and offer immediately visible results, no discomfort or downtime and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as helping to improve other skin impurities such as blackheads, congestion, brown spots and so on.

HydraFacial and Microdermabrasion are both skin resurfacing treatments that remove dead skin cells and impurities from your skin. Microdermabrasion is quite abrasive on the skin using a rough tip to resurface the skin, it can cause a rough pulling effect on the skin which can cause redness or inflammation post-treatment. HydraFacial, however, is very gentle on the skin and uses vortex technology which uses a liquid to lift off dead skin cells, dirt, and oil from your skin. HydraFacial is often referred to as a total rejuvenation treatment as it combines various procedures in one session, including cleansing, exfoliation, serum infusion, lympathic massage and LED light therapy to create an overall effective yet gentle effect on your skin, whereas Microdermabrasion is just one procedure.

When you come to Transform, the entire experience is designed around you and your needs. We’ll listen carefully to your aspirations for being the best you, and you’ll receive all the advice and support you need throughout your journey with us. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect.

Chest reduction step-by-step

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering chest reduction surgery, the likely costs and finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss what you ideally want your chest to look like, whether you are a suitable candidate for the surgery and the benefits and risks with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. They’ll go through the type of surgery you will need and the results you can expect to achieve. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. Male chest reduction surgery uses liposuction to remove excess fat. Depending on the result you want to achieve, it may also involve removing glandular tissue and loose skin. We have three classifications of chest reduction surgery, all of which are performed by our experienced cosmetic surgeons at one of our Transform hospitals: Grade 1 involves small to moderate gland removal. Grade 2 involves a moderate to large combination of gland and skin removal. Grade 3 involves a larger combination of skin, glandular and fatty breast tissue removal.

Following the procedure, you may need to stay for one night in the Transform hospital where your surgery has taken place, where you’ll receive the highest quality aftercare. Before you leave the hospital, we’ll talk to you about looking after yourself at home and make a follow-up appointment with your surgeon. We’ll also give you the number for our 24/7 patient helpline so you can speak to a member of our clinical team, day or night.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you through the recovery period. You may feel sore or uncomfortable for several days after chest reduction surgery, so we will prescribe some painkillers. In some cases, pain may persist for some weeks after surgery, although it is rare for patients to experience extreme pain. There will also be noticeable swelling and bruising for a number of weeks. We recommend taking a few days off work in the early stages of healing. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.

Cool-Sculpting frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your surgeon any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

CoolSculpting FAQs

Treating one area of the body with CoolSculpting takes from 35-45 minutes. If you want to treat several areas in the same session, it can last anywhere between one and three hours.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that’s best suited to large fatty deposits in areas like your stomach, hips and thighs. You would probably need between a couple of days and a week off work to recover after the surgery, and would most likely have to wear a compression garment for several weeks. CoolSculpting is a more targeted, non-invasive treatment that works best on small fatty deposits such as those on the chin, arms, inner thighs and back. There are no needles involved, and you won’t have to take time out afterwards.

The amount of time needed will depend on your individual requirements, although a session usually lasts between one and two hours.

As it’s a toning-related (rather than a weight loss) treatment, CoolSculpting is ideally suited to anyone who has isolated fatty bulges that they’re not able to shift through exercise or dieting. At your free consultation, we’ll ask you a few questions about your areas of concern, your medical history and why you want to go ahead with the procedure, so we can be sure that it’s suitable for you.

This will depend on the area you’re having treated and the results you’re looking to achieve. Sometimes just one session is sufficient, but on other occasions, you might need a series of appointments. After discussing your needs, your Patient Advisor will explain how many sessions you’ll need and then work with you to create an individual treatment plan tailored to your personal circumstances.

This procedure can be safely performed on most fat-prone body areas, including the chin, neck, stomach, thighs, abdomen, hips, flanks, back, arms and buttocks. It can’t be used on the face, calves, feet, ankles or hands.

As it’s completely non-invasive, you can get back to doing your normal, everyday activities straight away.

The fat cells eliminated are permanently killed off and can’t come back. It’s important to remember, though, that new fat cells can grow in their place, so you’ll need to try and keep your weight consistent if you want the results to last.

The results are long lasting, but if you put on any weight after your procedure, it’s possible that fat could again gather in the area that you’ve had treated. That’s why it’s best to stick to a healthy lifestyle and diet.

Dermal fillers frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your practitioner or nurse any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Dermal fillers FAQs

The treatment generally takes around 30 to 45 minutes, and you can usually get back to everyday life straight away.

Over time, your skin slowly loses the collagen that helps to shape and support it. Sun exposure, smoking, air pollution and everyday stresses can speed up the ageing process, causing lines, wrinkles and sagging to develop more quickly. Dermal fillers replace the collagen that’s been lost to help you look fresher again.

At Transform, dermal filler treatments are only ever administered by our fully qualified, highly trained practitioners and nurses.

We apply a special numbing cream to the area that’s going to be treated, which means that although treatment might be uncomfortable, it shouldn’t be painful.

There might be a small amount of swelling or bruising around the site of the injections but this usually subsides within 30 minutes and disappears entirely within 48 hours.

Other than a follow up appointment one to two weeks later, there’s no aftercare required. Any temporary discomfort you may feel after the procedure can be treated with painkillers.

The effects of Juvederm® and Restylane® last for between 6 and 24 months, while Sculptra® can last for more than two years.

Yes, we offer a choice of two finance options. You can pay a deposit of just £500 and choose either 12 monthly interest-free payments or spreading the cost over two to five years.

Facial peels frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your practitioner or nurse any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Facial peels FAQs

The acids within the peel work by bringing the pH of the skin to an optimum acidity level. This action chemically loosens the “glue” that binds the dead and damaged cells, causing exfoliation and allowing the promotion of new cell growth.

 

We provide a range of medical formulation chemical peel treatments of varying strengths. Each is safe and designed to penetrate and exfoliate to a particular depth. These range from light peels such as Epionce refresh, Obagi Blue Radiance and Glycolic right through to deep phenol peels that can help to reduce facial wrinkles or treat sun damaged skin.

Each peel has a different strength of active ingredients and therefore the treatment itself varies. Generally, the treatment involves the preparation of the area to be treated and the careful application of the chemical peel. It will be removed after a specific time and then a cream may then be applied.

Milder ‘superficial’ peels, such as the glycolic peel, can be used to reveal fresher looking, brighter and rejuvenated skin, while stronger facial peels work at a deeper level targeting wrinkles, scars and blemishes.

The whole process usually takes around 30 minutes.

Some chemical peels are single skin peel treatments and involve no down time. Others require a course of treatments, some of which have little or no down time, others with a maximum of 7 to 10 day recovery period. You should always use sunblock post-treatment, as your skin can be quite sensitive. After any chemical peel you can leave the clinic as soon as you feel comfortable to do so.

Facial peels can be used as regular skin treatments to help keep skin looking smoother and fresher. Our fully qualified practitioners will assess your skin and provide recommendations for ongoing or regular treatments. • Entry level peels such as Glycolic, Epionce Lite Refresh, Obagi Blue Peel radiance peels are recommended once every two weeks and are most effective when a course of peels is completed (usually 3-6 peels) • Epionce corrective facial peels, once every four weeks to maintain a glowing skin • Easy TCA peels are recommended once a week or once every two weeks – with a total of four peels in a course

Hair removal frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your practitioner or nurse any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Hair removal FAQs

Thanks to our advanced technology lasers, we should be able to perform laser hair removal on anyone, including those with darker skin tones, as long as you have a suitable medical history and don’t have a reaction to the patch test.

Most people require six to eight sessions to get the results they want, but your practitioner will be able to advise exactly how many are right for you. Sessions are normally scheduled between four and six weeks apart, and you’ll notice that less and less hair grows back each time.

Winter is the best time to have laser hair removal treatment because it’s easier to avoid direct sunlight, which can damage sensitised skin. However, you can have laser hair treatment or top-ups at any time of year, as long as you don’t have a tan. As it takes several months to fully complete a course of treatment, it’s important to plan ahead, so if you want hair-free skin in time for summer, you probably need to book your first session for January or February.

You’ll need to keep the treated area out of the sun for approximately two weeks before and after your laser hair removal course, depending on your skin type. Your practitioner will advise you on what precautions you need to take and for how long. For darker skins, you may need to avoid sunlight for six weeks before and after your treatment to avoid marks appearing on your skin.

For your first consultation and patch test, you should leave hair unshaven so that the practitioner can properly assess the hair and take accurate before photos. After that, we advise that you shave before each treatment session.

IPL (Intense Pulse Light) treatment is an alternative long-term hair removal method that you might consider if you have light-coloured skin. IPL technology can also be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including thread veins, sun spots and rosacea.

IPL hair removal works in a similar way to laser hair removal it uses light to heat up and destroy hair follicles, and it takes between six and eight sessions to get the area completely free of hair. But there’s one important difference IPL hair removal is more intense and goes deeper into the skin, which means it’s usually only suitable for those with light skin types.

To treat your skin type, our practitioners will use a longer wavelength, which will destroy the hair in its follicle. This disrupts the cycle of hair regrowth, without damaging your skin, resulting in effective hair removal.

We always perform a patch test on all patients to ensure the treatment will be suitable. Our experienced practitioners will test a small area of your skin using the laser. Your laser settings will then be recorded before waiting 2 to 14 days to assess the outcome of the patch test (the darker your skin, usually the longer we need to wait).

The total cost of your initial programme of laser hair removal treatments will depend on the area being treated and how many sessions are needed to give long-lasting results.

Mole and cyst removal FAQs

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your surgeon any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Mole and cyst removal FAQs

The procedure generally takes around 20-30 minutes, depending on how many moles, cysts, skin tags or lesions need to be removed.

We offer treatment for Moles brown or black growths on the skin. Cysts sacs filled with fluid or semi-fluid material. Skin tags small protruding pieces of skin that can grow in the groin area, armpits, neck and eyelids. Skin lesions surface growths or patches of the skin that don’t resemble the skin around it. Lentigines, small dark spots on the skin that can be a genetic condition caused by excessive radiation or sun exposure

This procedure is commonly performed by our resident Dermatologist, who will remove the mole, cyst, skin tag or lesion, and send it for analysis to ensure that there are no abnormal cells. Our experienced doctors will then complete the procedure by inserting small stitches.

A local anaesthetic is used to keep any pain to a minimum, and this is applied 5-10 minutes before the procedure begins.

You’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be fine to go about your normal day-to-day activities. You’ll need to keep the wound dry for two days and you’ll be advised to return to the clinic to have your stitches removed 7-10 days post-treatment.

The techniques we use are designed to minimise any scarring, however after removing a mole, cyst, skin tag or lesion, a small scar may remain, which should fade in time. Rarely, some people with very dark or light skin may find they have a larger scar than usual.

The risks associated with mole and cyst removal are very minimal. Transform hospitals and clinics have an exceptionally high standard of hygiene, which means there is a low risk of infection.

More details on chest reduction

When you come to Transform, the entire experience is designed around you and your needs. We’ll listen carefully to your aspirations for being the best you, and you’ll receive all the advice and support you need throughout your journey with us. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect.

Chest reduction step-by-step

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering chest reduction surgery, the likely costs and finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss what you ideally want your chest to look like, whether you are a suitable candidate for the surgery and the benefits and risks with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. They’ll go through the type of surgery you will need and the results you can expect to achieve. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. Male chest reduction surgery uses liposuction to remove excess fat. Depending on the result you want to achieve, it may also involve removing glandular tissue and loose skin. We have three classifications of chest reduction surgery, all of which are performed by our experienced cosmetic surgeons at one of our Transform hospitals: Grade 1 involves small to moderate gland removal. Grade 2 involves a moderate to large combination of gland and skin removal. Grade 3 involves a larger combination of skin, glandular and fatty breast tissue removal.

Following the procedure, you may need to stay for one night in the Transform hospital where your surgery has taken place, where you’ll receive the highest quality aftercare. Before you leave the hospital, we’ll talk to you about looking after yourself at home and make a follow-up appointment with your surgeon. We’ll also give you the number for our 24/7 patient helpline so you can speak to a member of our clinical team, day or night.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you through the recovery period. You may feel sore or uncomfortable for several days after chest reduction surgery, so we will prescribe some painkillers. In some cases, pain may persist for some weeks after surgery, although it is rare for patients to experience extreme pain. There will also be noticeable swelling and bruising for a number of weeks. We recommend taking a few days off work in the early stages of healing. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.

Skin rejuvenation frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your practitioner or nurse any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Skin rejuvenation FAQs

IPL technology is a type of laser that generates intense bursts of red or blue light. These heat the dermal tissue without harming or removing the outer epidermal layers of the skin. The body’s natural processes then work to break down and remove these marks. The appearance of any skin imperfection can then be visibly reduced. Treatment results and benefits can vary and are different for each individual. As such, Transform cannot guarantee specific results.

A cooling gel is first applied to the area to be treated and you’ll be asked to wear protective eyewear. A state-of-the-art Lumenis One or Quantum IPL machine is then gently applied. This delivers precise pulses of light that may help eliminate the pigment or imperfection without damaging surrounding tissue.

Each treatment takes around 20 minutes and you will be able to leave the clinic immediately after your session. The treatment is pain-free but you may experience a slight tingling sensation and have some redness for an hour or so.

Around 6 treatments at 3-6 week intervals are usually required. We recommend a top-up treatment once or twice a year to maintain your desired results.

IPL can be effective by itself but a combination of treatments could enhance results further. Other treatments that may give firmer, younger-looking skin include facial peels, line and wrinkle smoothing, and dermal fillers.

Thread vein removal frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your practitioner or nurse any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Thread vein removal FAQs

Thread veins can appear blue, red purple and are generally larger and more visible than usual. They can occur anywhere, but are usually found on the face and legs. You might spot them as unconnected lines or they can appear in a web-like pattern. They initially appear small but can often grow.

Thread veins are damaged veins and can no longer return blood to the heart and lungs. It’s also possible for micro-tears to release small amounts of blood and cause staining. The damaged veins can cause neighbouring veins to malfunction and stretch, which is why thread veins often get worse over time. Facial thread veins can be caused by rosacea, sun exposure, repeated sneezing and frequent coughing. These may also exacerbate existing thread veins.

While women are generally at a greater risk of getting thread veins, men do get them as well. You are more likely to suffer from thread veins if they already run in your family. Additional risk factors include injuries or trauma, and they are often associated with prolonged periods of sitting or standing as increasing the risk of thread veins.

You can help reduce the risk of thread veins by maintaining a healthy weight and diet, as well as by avoiding excessive alcohol and smoking. Make sure you avoid prolonged sun exposure and wear SPF cream at all times this applies to everyone, even while in the UK. You should also avoid very hot or very cold water when you’re in the bath or shower, and you can improve the blood flow in your legs through the use of compression garments.

Wrinkle treatments frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your practitioner or nurse any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Wrinkle treatments - FAQ

The treatment generally takes under 30 minutes, and you can usually get back to everyday life straight away.

Over exposure to the sun, smoking, city living, squinting at monitors and, of course, the ageing process all take their toll on your skin. As you get older, your face starts to develop fine lines and wrinkles as collagen and elastin fibres break down, causing skin to lose its strength and smoothness.

Botox blocks the nerve impulses to the muscles so they relax and can’t contract. This causes lines and wrinkles to soften.

At Transform, all Botox treatments are carried out by either a practitioner or fully qualified nurse.

You’ll need to avoid tilting your head forwards for a few hours and shouldn’t exercise for 24 hours after the procedure. You can take ordinary painkillers to relieve any temporary discomfort you might have around the site of the injections.

It takes a little while for your muscles to relax completely, so the results are not immediate. You’ll see the difference between five days to two weeks after your treatment.

This will vary from person to person, but it’s usually between three and four months. We usually recommend having a top-up treatment every four months.

Yes, we offer a choice of two finance options. You can pay a deposit of just £500 and choose either 12 monthly interest-free payments or spreading the cost over two to five years.

Step by step guide

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering CoolSculpting, the likely costs and finance options, and when you’d like to have the treatment. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our CoolSculpting experts.

You can discuss every aspect of body contouring from the different methods and recovery time to the benefits and risks with no obligation to go ahead. Our practitioners are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have.

Depending on the area you’re having treated and the amount of fat to be removed, your practitioner will discuss the best technique for you. If you feel ready to go ahead, we can book your treatment in for a date and time that suits you.

On the day of your CoolSculpting treatment, you’ll meet with your practitioner so you can go through any last-minute questions. As it’s a non-surgical procedure, it takes less than two hours to complete. A gel pad and applicator will be applied. You might feel some pulling, pinching or an intense cold in the first few minutes, but this soon passes as the area becomes numbed. Then you just sit back and let the technology do its work. After your treatment, the area will be massaged for a few minutes to help with the cell breakdown.

We’ll be here to help you throughout the process. As it’s a non-surgical procedure, there’s no recovery time needed, so you’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as you’re ready and get straight back to everyday activities. You might experience some redness of the skin, minor bruising, swelling, tingling or numbing afterwards, but this will subside quickly. A few weeks later, you’ll have a follow-up appointment to check that you’re happy with the results. It can take around two to three months to see the full results of your CoolSculpting treatment so if you have a special occasion that you want to look your best for, make sure you book well in advance.

Dermal fillers frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your practitioner or nurse any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Dermal Fillers FAQs

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we understand that each individual’s procedure is different and will be tailored specifically around the patient. Because of this, we place a great deal of importance on our free face-to-face, no obligation consultations. Following our consultation process your patient advisor will provide a detailed pricing overview around the particular procedure. Please view our pricing and finance page to read more about our flexible credit options, available via our partnership with a specialist financial provider. More info here.

The treatment generally takes around 30 to 45 minutes, and you can usually get back to everyday life straight away.

At Transform, dermal filler treatments are only ever administered by our fully qualified, highly trained practitioners and nurses.

We apply a special numbing cream to the area that’s going to be treated, which means that although treatment might be uncomfortable, it shouldn’t be painful.

There might be a small amount of swelling or bruising around the site of the injections but this usually subsides within 30 minutes and disappears entirely within 48 hours.

Other than a follow up appointment one to two weeks later, there’s no aftercare required. Any temporary discomfort you may feel after the procedure can be treated with painkillers.

The effects of most dermal fillers last for between 6 and 24 months. In some cases, dermal fillers can last for more than two years depending on the filler type used.

Over time, your skin slowly loses the collagen that helps to shape and support it. Sun exposure, smoking, air pollution and everyday stresses can speed up the ageing process, causing lines, wrinkles and sagging to develop more quickly. Dermal fillers replace the collagen that’s been lost to help you look fresher again.

You can discuss what you ideally want your chest to look like, whether you are a suitable candidate for the surgery and the benefits and risks with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. They’ll go through the type of surgery you will need and the results you can expect to achieve. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. Male chest reduction surgery uses liposuction to remove excess fat. Depending on the result you want to achieve, it may also involve removing glandular tissue and loose skin. We have three classifications of chest reduction surgery, all of which are performed by our experienced cosmetic surgeons at one of our Transform hospitals: Grade 1 involves small to moderate gland removal. Grade 2 involves a moderate to large combination of gland and skin removal. Grade 3 involves a larger combination of skin, glandular and fatty breast tissue removal.

Following the procedure, you may need to stay for one night in the Transform hospital where your surgery has taken place, where you’ll receive the highest quality aftercare. Before you leave the hospital, we’ll talk to you about looking after yourself at home and make a follow-up appointment with your surgeon. We’ll also give you the number for our 24/7 patient helpline so you can speak to a member of our clinical team, day or night.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you through the recovery period. You may feel sore or uncomfortable for several days after chest reduction surgery, so we will prescribe some painkillers. In some cases, pain may persist for some weeks after surgery, although it is rare for patients to experience extreme pain. There will also be noticeable swelling and bruising for a number of weeks. We recommend taking a few days off work in the early stages of healing. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.

IPL and laser hair removal frequently asked questions

If you’re thinking about IPL or laser treatment for hair removal, you might have plenty of questions relating to the treatment, results and cost. We’ve answered the most common questions below, but if you can’t find the answer you’re looking for then please feel free to contact us for more information.

Laser hair removal FAQs

Yes, we have some great offers on our laser hair removal courses! Call our team of experts on 0330 053 9115 to ask about the discounts we have available for our laser and IPL treatments.

At Transform, we offer a bespoke treatment plan for each person in line with their individual requirements. This means that laser hair removal prices can vary depending on several factors such as the size of the area you’re having treated. For instance, full body laser hair removal costs will be different to treatment involving a small area such as the underarms. Following the consultation process, your advisor will let you know how much your laser hair removal will cost and provide a detailed pricing overview, as well as information regarding our flexible credit options.

Intense Pulse Light treatment, otherwise known as IPL hair removal, is a long-term hair removal treatment that uses light to destroy hair follicles. It can treat a much bigger area of skin per pulse of light than laser hair removal, meaning it can be a faster treatment. IPL technology can also be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including thread veins, sunspots and rosacea.

Yes, there are. Here at Transform, we offer two different types of hair removal – laser hair removal and IPL technologyl. They work in a similar way, using pulses of light to heat up and destroy hair follicles. Typically, both types of laser hair removal take between six and eight sessions to get the area completely free of hair. But there’s one important difference – laser hair removal is more intense as it has a denser light which focuses all the energy. The ideal candidate for laser hair removal is anyone with hair that’s darker than their skin, whereas IPL technology is usually only suitable for those with nat­u­rally dark-blond, brown and black hair. If you’re unsure whether IPL or laser hair removal will be right for you, get in touch with our experts today who’ll be happy to help you find your most suitable method.

Thanks to our advanced technology lasers, we should be able to perform hair removal treatment on anyone, including both light and dark skin tones − as long as you have a suitable medical history and don’t have a reaction to the patch test. We cannot provide our laser hair removal service if you have a tan or if your hair has lightened in the sun, so you’ll need to wait for this to completely fade before sessions.

Most people require six to eight sessions of laser hair removal to get the results they want, but your practitioner will be able to advise exactly how many are right for you. Typically, with laser hair removal the interval between treatments is between four and six weeks, as it’s best at removing hair which is in the active growth stage and not all hair in in that phase at the same time. You’ll notice that less and less hair grows back after each treatment.

Yes, laser hair removal is a safe treatment, but may sometimes cause side effects such as redness, bruising, pain and swelling, although this is quite rare. Here at Transform, all our practitioners are CTC-registered and receive ongoing training in the very latest techniques. Using our experience and expertise, we have helped thousands of people through their hair removal journeys, so you can book your treatment with complete confidence and know that you’re in capable hands. We also use the highest quality equipment such as Lightsheer, Quantum, Soprano, Lumenis One and Harmony machines in our Care Quality Commission-registered clinics to ensure your treatment is effective.

You’ll notice that your hair grows back finer with each laser hair removal session, reducing by approximately 10-15% with each treatment until it disappears entirely. We recommend a top-up treatment once a year to maintain the smooth results.

Yes, shaving is fine. In fact, we’ll ask you to shave between each laser hair removal session as it makes it easier to perform the treatment, but you shouldn’t wax or pluck as this removes the hair from the follicle, so there’s nothing for the lasers to target.

Winter is the best time to have laser treatment for hair removal because it’s easier to avoid direct sunlight, which can damage sensitised skin. However, you can have laser or IPL treatment at any time of year, as long as you don’t have a tan. Because it takes several months to fully complete a laser hair removal course, it’s important to plan ahead. For instance, if you want hair-free skin in time for your summer holiday, you probably need to book your first session for January or February.

Yes, you’ll need to keep the treated area out of the sun for approximately two weeks before and after your laser hair removal course, depending on your skin type. Your practitioner will advise you on any precautions you’ll need to take and for how long. For darker skin types, you may need to avoid sunlight for six weeks before and after your treatment to avoid marks appearing on your skin.

No, your skin needs to be totally free of tanning products. This is because the lasers can’t tell the difference between natural melanin in the skin or stimulated melanin from the tanning products, so they’ll heat up both structures to the same temperature. This can damage the skin and cause blisters, darkening or pigmentation.

You’ll need to wait for approximately six weeks so that the hair has time to grow back in the follicle.

For your first consultation and patch test, you should leave hair unshaven so that the practitioner can properly assess the hair and take accurate before photos. After that, we advise that you shave before each treatment session.

Understandably, many patients are keen to understand how IPL and laser hair removal work. While both lasers and IPL use light to heat hair follicles and prevent hair regrowth, the technology used for each is not the same, because different light sources are used.

Laser hair removal treatment involves using a powerful laser that emits precisely controlled pulses of energy, which heat and destroy the root of the hair in the skin. By damaging the hair at its source, future hair growth is stopped or delayed safely without affecting the surrounding tissue.

IPL technology, in contrast, is not a laser treatment because it uses a broad spectrum of light rather than the single spectrum light used in laser hair removal.

Yes, it is. Usually, laser hair removal is more suitable than IPL treatment for darker skin types. This is because dark skin has higher levels of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour, so it absorbs light at a faster rate than light-coloured skin. The advanced technology lasers we use at Transform for darker skin tones can tell the difference between melanin in the skin and the melanin in the hair to precisely target the area to be treated. During your treatment, our practitioners will use a long wavelength to destroy the hair in its follicle. This disrupts the cycle of hair regrowth without damaging your skin, resulting in effective hair removal.

We always perform a patch test on all patients to ensure the chosen hair removal treatment will be suitable. This means our experienced practitioners will test a small area of your skin using the laser. Your laser settings will then be recorded before waiting 2 to 14 days to assess the outcome of the patch test. Usually, the darker your skin, the longer we need to wait for the results.

How long your laser hair removal, or your IPL treatment, takes will depend on the size of the area you’re having treated and the amount of hair you have. As a guide, sessions can last anywhere from 15 minutes to two hours. For example, laser hair removal of the underarms may take 30 minutes or less, whereas treatment of the upper and lower leg may take up to 90 minutes.

If you’re thinking about having this treatment, it’s important to get a good understanding of the potential laser and IPL hair removal side effects. Please know that both IPL and laser treatments are safe and will be carried out by CTC-registered practitioners with the relevant knowledge and expertise. However, there are some potential laser hair removal risks which may include tender or painful skin, bruising, blistering, swelling, scarring or burns. The IPL and laser hair removal side effects are rare, and your advisor will discuss all risks with you during your consultation. We’re here to help you along your hair removal journey, so please don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have.

IPL and laser hair removal are very effective, but results will vary depending on your complexion and hair. You’ll notice that your hair grows back finer with each laser hair removal session, reducing by approximately 10-15% with each treatment until it disappears entirely. We recommend a top-up treatment once a year to maintain the smooth results.

Technically, laser and IPL aren’t permanent hair removal techniques, but they will have long-lasting results. Laser hair removal works by heating and destroying the hair follicle to reduce future hair growth. While this is not a guaranteed permanent hair removal method, most patients will find that the hair will grow back finer with each session until it stops growing. Typically, we advise patients to have a laser hair removal treatment once per year after their initial course to maintain the result.

Many of our patients ask us if laser hair removal is painful. The treatment shouldn’t hurt, but as the practitioner glides the laser device across the surface of your skin, you’ll experience a pulsing sensation. Some patients say this feels like stinging, a hot pinprick or an elastic band flicking the skin.

After laser hair removal sessions, you should be able to leave the clinic and go about your normal daily life. However, it’s important to avoid any strenuous activities or applying products that may irritate the treated area. Your skin will be much more sensitive to sunlight after laser hair removal so you should stay out of the sun for several weeks and apply regular SPF protection. Your patient advisor can provide more information on laser hair removal aftercare during your consultation. Rest assured that we’re committed to providing the highest standard of aftercare for all our patients, which is why we have a 24/7 helpline that you can contact if you need any assistance or advice post treatment.

Microdermabrasion is a form of exfoliation that polishes the top most layer of your skin and then vacuums away the dead skin cells. Unique diamond chip wands carefully polish your skin to help reveal a more natural radiance. This helps to reduce fine lines and rejuvenate the complexion quickly and without discomfort. In addition to smoothing and improving the complexion of your skin, it can give it a more luminous glow and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

We use the advanced DiamondTome system of dermabrasion. This helps reduce fine lines and rejuvenates the complexion quickly and without discomfort.

Treatment is carried out by our experienced and fully qualified practitioners in a modern, regulated, well equipped clinical environment.

Typically treatments are once or twice a week for 6 treatments and one per month thereafter. Your fully trained practitioner will discuss your suitability to treatment and create a personal treatment plan to help you achieve the best results.

We normally allow 1-2 weeks between treatments.

Grade 2 involves a moderate to large combination of gland and skin removal. Grade 3 involves a larger combination of skin, glandular and fatty breast tissue removal.

Following the procedure, you may need to stay for one night in the Transform hospital where your surgery has taken place, where you’ll receive the highest quality aftercare. Before you leave the hospital, we’ll talk to you about looking after yourself at home and make a follow-up appointment with your surgeon. We’ll also give you the number for our 24/7 patient helpline so you can speak to a member of our clinical team, day or night.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you through the recovery period. You may feel sore or uncomfortable for several days after chest reduction surgery, so we will prescribe some painkillers. In some cases, pain may persist for some weeks after surgery, although it is rare for patients to experience extreme pain. There will also be noticeable swelling and bruising for a number of weeks. We recommend taking a few days off work in the early stages of healing. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll also have a series of follow-up appointments with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.

What they both do: Use light that heats up the hair follicle and destroys it. Take approximately 6-8 treatments to achieve complete hair reduction. Provide longer lasting results for patients looking to remove hair versus other traditional options such as plucking, waxing or shaving. The difference between the two is quite simple: IPL (or Intense Pulse Light treatment) goes to more depth and intensity to destroy the hair follicle. However, because of this additional intensity, it means that it may only be suitable for those with a lighter skin type. Laser hair removal on the other hand can work with darker skin. IPL technology can also be used to treat a variety of skin conditions including thread veins, sun spots and rosacea

IPL technology is a type of laser that generates intense bursts of red or blue light. These heat the dermal tissue without harming or removing the outer epidermal layers of the skin. The body’s natural processes then work to break down and remove these marks. The appearance of any skin imperfection can then be visibly reduced.

A cooling gel is first applied to the area to be treated and you’ll be asked to wear protective eyewear. A state-of-the-art Lumenis One or Quantum IPL machine is then gently applied. This delivers precise pulses of light that may help eliminate the pigment or imperfection without damaging surrounding tissue.

The treatment is pain-free but you may experience a slight tingling sensation and have some redness after for an hour or so. Each treatment takes around 20 minutes and you will be able to leave the clinic immediately after your session.

We recommend a top-up treatment once or twice a year to maintain your desired results. Around 6 treatments at 3-6 week intervals is usually required.

IPL can be effective in itself but a combination of treatments could enhance results further. Other treatments which may give firmer, younger-looking skin include microdermabrasion and facial peels. Deep lines or wrinkles might also benefit from line and wrinkle smoothing or dermal fillers treatment.

Thread vein removal frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your practitioner or nurse any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Thread vein removal FAQs

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we understand that each individual’s procedure is different and will be tailored specifically around the patient. Because of this, thread vein removal costs vary and we place a great deal of importance on our free face-to-face, no obligation consultations. Following our consultation process your patient adviser will provide a detailed pricing overview around your procedure. Please view our pricing and finance page to read more about thread vein removal costs and our flexible credit options. More info here.

Thread veins can appear blue, red purple and are generally larger and more visible than usual. They can occur anywhere, but are usually found on the face and legs. You might spot them as unconnected lines or they can appear in a web-like pattern. They initially appear small but can often grow.

Thread veins are damaged and can no longer return blood to the heart and lungs. It’s also possible for micro-tears to release small amounts of blood and cause staining. The damaged veins can cause neighbouring veins to malfunction and stretch, which is why thread veins often get worse over time. Facial thread veins can be caused by Rosacea, sun exposure, repeated sneezing and frequent coughing. These may also exacerbate existing thread veins.

Women are generally at a greater risk of getting thread veins, but men do get them as well. You are more likely to suffer from thread veins if they already run in your family. Female hormones can increase the risk by softening of the walls and valves of a vein, and the extra blood volume created by pregnancy can also add to the likelihood of getting them. Additional risk factors include injuries or trauma, and some evidence points to prolonged periods of sitting or standing as increasing the risk of thread veins.

You can reduce the risk of thread veins by maintaining a healthy weight and diet, as well as by avoiding excessive alcohol and smoking. Make sure you avoid prolonged sun exposure and wear SPF cream at all times this applies to everyone, even while in the UK. You should also avoid very hot or very cold water when you’re in the bath or shower, and you can improve the blood flow in your legs through the use of compression garments.

They block the nerve impulses to the muscles so that they relax and can’t contract. This causes lines and wrinkles to soften.

At Transform, all anti-wrinkle injectables and procedures are carried out by either a practitioner or fully qualified nurse.

You’ll need to avoid tilting your head forwards for a few hours, and shouldn’t exercise for 24 hours after the procedure. You can take ordinary painkillers to relieve any temporary discomfort you might have around the site of the wrinkle injections.

It takes a little while for your muscles to relax completely, so the results of wrinkle injectables are not immediate. You’ll see the difference between five days to two weeks after your treatment.

Over-exposure to the sun, smoking, city living, squinting at monitors and, of course, the ageing process, all take their toll on your skin.
