Our Team

Plastic surgery is a medical specialty that involves the reconstruction, restoration, or alteration of the human body’s form or function. Plastic surgery is performed for a variety of reasons, and the decision to undergo such procedures is typically a personal one made by patients in consultation with their surgeon. Here are some common reasons why patients choose to undergo plastic surgery and where can help in an ethical and responsible way where we prioritise patient safety and well-being above all else:
  • Cosmetic Enhancement: Many individuals opt for plastic surgery to enhance their physical appearance. Procedures such as breast augmentation, rhinoplasty (nose job), facelifts, and liposuction are popular choices for people who want to improve their aesthetic appearance.
  • Reconstruction After Injury or Trauma: Plastic surgery is often used to repair and reconstruct parts of the body following accidents, burns, or other traumatic injuries. This can include procedures like skin grafts, scar revision, and tissue reconstruction.
  • Cancer Reconstruction: Patients who have undergone surgery to remove cancerous tumors, particularly in the breast (mastectomy) or head and neck regions, may choose to undergo reconstructive surgery to restore their appearance and function after cancer treatment.
  • Weight Loss Surgery: After significant weight loss, whether through bariatric surgery or lifestyle changes, individuals may have excess skin and tissue that can be addressed through procedures like body contouring, tummy tucks, and arm lifts.
  • Functional Improvement: Some plastic surgery procedures are performed to improve bodily function. For example, rhinoplasty can correct breathing problems, and breast reduction surgery can alleviate back and neck pain caused by excessively large breasts.
  • Psychological and Emotional Well-Being: Plastic surgery can have a significant impact on a person’s self-confidence and mental well-being. Some individuals choose these procedures to address issues related to body image dissatisfaction, which can have a positive effect on their overall mental health.
Patients should seek consultation and advice from one of our qualified plastic surgeons who can assess their individual needs and expectations and provide guidance on the most appropriate treatments or procedures for their specific situations.

Testimonials

Professional and gentle with a genuine concern for patient well being. I was consistently treated with patience, dignity and respect. At almost 5 weeks post op, I am almost fully healed, and whilst it hasn’t been the easiest or most comfortable 5 weeks of my life at no point have I felt unable to reach out.

- Rhinoplasty and Mastopexy Patient

Mr. Sandip Hindocha needs recommending massively because not only did he help with my surgery but also advised me on other health concerns to be mindful of post surgery, like protecting my scarring. This shows he’s a caring person, so when I go for my next procedure I will only have him!

- Breast Augmentation Patient

I’ve wanted this done for a long time, the consultation was really helpful and I didn’t feel pressured at all. Mr. Hindocha was amazing before, during and after surgery. He got me the results I wanted!

- Breast Augmentation Patient

I am happy and grateful to have had Prof Sandip Hindocha as my appraiser for the last 3 years. Every appraisal was great, professional and yet relaxed and friendly. I am looking forward for my next appraisal with him.

Mr. Sandip Hindocha was excellent! After my first consultation with him, my mind was made up – this was the man I wanted to do my surgery. He informed me of absolutely everything and he has done an amazing job. I’m so happy with my belly now, words can’t even describe my feelings and I’m only 9 weeks post op!
