When performed by a skilled surgeon, it is uncommon that things should go wrong after cosmetic surgery. However, you will want to know that you can easily by seen by your surgeon if you have any questions or concerns.
Unlike many nurse-led cosmetic surgery providers, Liberate surgeons provide personal care as part of their established local private practices. Because you will want to see the surgeon who performed your operation, rather than a patient coordinator, you can feel confident with Liberate.
It's your body, so you'll want reassurance that you will be taken care of, throughout your entire cosmetic surgery experience. All of our surgeons personally meet their clients for the initial and second consultations. This is important so that they can discuss all the details with you and agree the best course of action. Then they perform the surgery. Best of all, they will be there to follow up with you, after the surgery and for any other post-operation requirements.
If you have surgery abroad, could you afford to fly back if something goes wrong once you’ve returned to the UK? With Liberate Cosmetic Surgery we want you to be able to choose your surgeon, who operates at a hospital convenient to you.
All of the Liberate surgeons are permanently based in the UK. So unlike cosmetic surgery groups that employ surgeons from abroad, with Liberate your aftercare really is for life– we think that’s important.
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.
