Meet the Team

We specialise in working with clients who are considering surgery or undergoing treatment that may change their appearance in some way as well as addressing physical or functional issues.

We offer pre-surgery consultations and planning sessions, but are also able to support clients throughout the process of deciding on surgery, preparing for an operation or treatment and in the post-operative period.
