Many patients consider cosmetic surgery or aesthetics treatments at FACEmed in our Essex based clinic. Despite these two areas being distinctly separate forms of medicine they can be complementary to one another. When cosmetic surgery and aesthetics treatments are combined they can create outcome longevity and more natural looking results.

The difference between surgical and non-surgical treatments

If you are not happy with the way something looks on your face or body there are now more options than ever before to change and improve your appearance.  The choice comes down to what you want to change and whether you would prefer invasive or non-invasive options.

Cosmetic surgery is an invasive way of changing your appearance, you may hear this referred to as ‘going under the knife’, whereas aesthetic treatments tend to be less invasive using options such as needles, lasers, radiofrequency or medical grade skin care to enhance the patients looks.

Combining cosmetic surgery with aesthetic treatment

As medical technology becomes more sophisticated we are seeing an increase in patients who are experiencing the benefits of combining both cosmetic surgery and aesthetic treatments.

Cosmetic surgery is a good option for patients who want to make a permanent change, for example if your face is sagging and it has gone beyond where aesthetic treatment will be effective. Cosmetic surgery will solve this concern relatively quickly and the results will be more dramatic than using dermal fillers or radio frequency technology, for example, to treat this particular issue. 

At FACEmed in Billericay we have a purpose built, state of the art surgical theatre where we undertake day case surgical cosmetic procedures including:

  • Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
  • Facelifts
  • Necklifts
  • Pinnaplasty (prominent ear surgery)
  • Reconstructive facial surgery
  • Breast surgery
  • Body contouring
  • Labiaplasty (vaginal rejuvenation surgery)

Having cosmetic surgery is a big decision to make, so if you do opt for this type of treatment it is important that you look after the results of your surgery, so that you don’t need to go under the knife again.

Aesthetic treatment after cosmetic surgery

Because cosmetic surgery is an invasive option there will be indications left on your body or face that you have had surgery. The cosmetic surgeons at FACEmed are all highly experienced and their skills and precision mean that they will leave minimal scarring after performing surgery. However, because of the nature of invasive surgery, it is likely that patients will be left with some light scarring after their treatment. 

Aesthetic treatments can not only help to improve the look of scars, but will improve overall skin quality and skin health, while reducing the time it will take for patients to see the full results they would expect to see after cosmetic surgery.
