I am an ex-pat living abroad. Would I be able to have an advanced mini facelift?
Yes, of course. We see and treat a significant number of patients who travel to the UK specifically to be treated by me and to enjoy the opportunity to catch up with friends and family at the same time. Years of living in a sunny climate can markedly accelerate the natural ageing process, so we fully understand why you might need a helping hand to look your best.
Patients often mention that their confidence in the British medical system (which is one of the most stringently regulated in the world) is a deciding factor in choosing me for treatment.
As we streamline and improve our care pathways, it is now possible to be treated and recover within a 12 - 14 day period, meaning that you can have an advanced mini facelift and return home within a fortnight, ready to get back to your normal routine. And if you want to keep it a secret from your friends back home, then that is your prerogative.
Travelling from abroad for treatment does however require some forethought and planning. Like everyone else, you will need to make at least two visits to the UK. You can choose to have an initial consultation in either Bristol or Harley Street in London. If you decide to go ahead with surgery then you will need to come to Bristol and you should plan to be in the UK for a total of at least 12 days.
Our Clinic Manager is well-versed in the best approach to this and it is a good idea to have a chat with her after reading through the 'patient journey' information on our website. You might also wish to spend some time looking through our Forum to see how other people have planned their own personal adventure. We can also offer you the opportunity to chat with one of our previous patients if you are still cannot decide whether to come and see me for a consultation.
If you do decide to go ahead with surgery we can help with ideas on where to stay, travel information and so forth and are happy to help arrange this for you. Almost all our patients travel a significant distance to Bristol so this is a very well-trodden path.
