Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery, also known as reconstructive surgery can repair and restore appearance and function that has been lost.

Trust our London-based plastic surgeons to assist you with your reconstructive surgery requirements.

Reconstructive surgery should not be confused with cosmetic surgery.

Cosmetic Surgery

People who come to The London Clinic for cosmetic surgery may have an imperfection that is affecting their confidence or self-esteem, such as a nose they think is too large or ears that stick out.

Whatever the reason, the techniques and skills used by surgeons at The London Clinic are among the best in the world.

plastic surgery after cancer treatment

Surgery or radiotherapy used to treat cancers at various sites in the body can be successful, but sometimes healthy tissue surrounding the tumour is not left undamaged. Reconstructive surgery can then be necessary to help restore function and appearance.

Plastic surgery can play an important role in rehabilitation after various types of cancer treatments:

  • Mastectomy for breast cancer - many different types of breast reconstruction techniques are now available, providing a wide choice for individual women
  • Head and neck cancer - facial reconstruction surgery is a particular expertise at The London Clinic
  • Surgery for skin cancer - patients may need a skin graft or skin flap to repair the skin defect
  • Surgery for colorectal cancer, gynaecological or peritoneal cancers - our reconstructive surgeons have developed novel surgical approaches to repair defects in the bowel and to correct fistulas.

Plastic surgery following trauma

Any type of accident, whether because of physical impact or burns, can cause injury that results in loss of tissue or directly damages the bones, limbs, hands, feet or face

Infection, particularly severe skin infections, can also lead to disfigurement. 

Plastic surgery can repair the damage and cosmetic techniques are combined with reconstructive surgical techniques to restore a natural appearance as far as possible.

At The London Clinic we have specialists who can offer:

  • Reconstructive surgery to repair upper and lower limbs
  • Reconstruction to restore the function and appearance of the hand, for example due to ulnar nerve compression, hand paralysis, Dupuytren’s disease, the effects of arthritis and nerve ganglion problems
  • Facial reconstruction to repair the bones and tissues of the face
  • Skin grafting and scar reduction in patients with burn damage to the skin or after extensive lacerations

Cosmetic surgery on the body

In addition to work on the breasts and face, plastic and reconstructive surgeons also offer surgery to reduce excess skin after weight loss.

This can include relatively minor procedures on the upper arms, inner thighs or a tummy tuck, as well as the much more extensive circumferential body lift required by people who have lost excessive amounts of weight in a short time.

We also offer:
