If you’re looking to go under the knife with a cosmetic surgery procedure on your face, it is important to find a qualified surgeon that has experience in the type of surgery.
In the UK, all doctors must register with the General Medical Council and have a license to practice and the same applies abroad. Clinics need to be accredited by the local regulator.

Here are some of the more popular cosmetic procedures for the face:
Brow lift is also known as forehead rejuvenation or forehead lift. It is a cosmetic procedure that raises the eyebrows. The brow lift improves the appearance and shape of the forehead, brows and surrounding area by lifting the soft tissue and skin around the forehead and eyebrows.
If you have a low, sagging or asymmetrical brow, you might consider a browlift. You might feel more confident after a brow lift.
You can have a brow lift alone or combined with other facial procedures like blepharoplasty or a facelift.
Rhytidectom, or better known as facelift is cosmetic surgery that lifts and pulls back skin to tighten and smoothen the face.
This procedure reduces flabby and sagging skin in the lower half (mainly the jowls), and neck.
A facelift can be costly, the results are not guaranteed and there are many risks.
Lip implants are a permanent alternative to temporary lip fillers. A consultant usually recommends the right size of lip implant during a consultation.
The surgical area is first sterilized. The lips are then anesthetized. After the lips have become numb, incisions are made at each corner of your mouth.
A ‘curved alligator clamp’ is a tool that creates a tunnel in the lips. The contour of the lip is carefully followed by the lip tunnel.
The clamp will open once the alligator clamp bends to the end of the tunnel. The implant is held in place and pulled into the lip tunnel. The implant is placed underneath the lip fat and over the lips’ muscles. After the implants have been placed, incisions can be closed using one to two absorbable stitches.
Implant insertion takes approximately thirty minutes. Patients can return home on the same day.
Rhinoplasty is a surgery that alters the shape of the nose. Rhinoplasty can be used to improve breathing, change the appearance or both.
The nose’s upper structure is made up of bone and cartilage. Rhinoplasty can alter bone, cartilage, skin, or both. A good surgeon will discuss with you whether rhinoplasty would be appropriate for you.
Your surgeon will consider your facial features, skin condition, and the things you want to improve when planning a rhinoplasty procedure.
