Illnesses such as chickenpox or conditions such as acne can leave significant scarring, which even the best foundation and concealers cannot hide.If you’re living with scars that are affecting your confidence and your life, there is a solution.
Scar revision could make your scarring less visible, helping it to blend in with the rest of your skin tone and texture. Depending on the severity of your condition, laser therapy, micro dermabrasion or surgery can all help to minimise its impact on your features, making your scarring virtually invisible.
All of our Liberate surgeons are members of BAAPS and /or BAPRAS and are highly qualified and experienced in this type of procedure. You can choose precisely which surgeon you’d like to carry out the treatment.
At your initial consultation, your surgeon will carefully examine the scarring, and then discuss what they feel to be the best type of treatment for you, as well as outlining what will happen during that treatment. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like at any point in the process, and be reassured by our excellent standard of aftercare.
Liberate is focused on your wellbeing and on achieving fantastic results. Contact us to find out more.
Once you have chosen your surgeon, there are a number of ways to make contact and arrange your initial consultation.
You can send your questions via the contact us page or email us directly here and a member of the Liberate team will contact you to answer any questions you may have and book your appointment.
The next step is to meet the surgeon of your choice. It is likely he/ she consults at two or three different hospitals; we can help you determine which location would be most convenient for you.
During an initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss with you your concerns and examine you to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for surgery.
He/ She will comprehensively explain what is involved in your procedure and discuss any possible risks associated with the procedure. This will be your first chance to ask all those questions!
Be sure to ask to see the surgeon’s before and after photographs. He/ She will be able to show you photographs of patients in a similar situation to yourself. This can be very useful for you to view the surgeon’s previous results to get an idea of what can be achieved.
Following your initial consultation, your surgeon will ask you to take time to think over all the information you have been given and talk it over with your friends and family. It is best practice for the surgeon to invite you back for a second consultation before you go ahead with any surgery.
This is a good opportunity to ask any questions that may have arisen since your first appointment. The surgeon will go through the procedure in more detail and ensure you have realistic expectations of the results possible.
When all your questions and concerns have been answered, the surgeon’s secretary will arrange a convenient date for your surgery. Try to avoid any important dates and events which may clash with your recovery period.
Each patient is different and it is difficult to predict how long your recovery will take. If you have young children make sure you have appropriate child care in place in order for you to recuperate and relax at home without having to look after the children.
With Liberate surgeons, you can rest assured that you will be looked after: before, during, following your surgery and beyond.
All Liberate surgeons make it a priority to see you following your surgery and are available for follow-up appointments.
You’ll be seen by the surgeon who operated on you – not a nurse or a different surgeon. It’s important to us that you see the surgeon you know already.
At Liberate, aftercare is for life.
