Despite condemnation from UK surgeons which was dubbed ‘insane’ and ‘depraved by Dr Fazel Fatah, consultant plastic surgeon and President of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), the “Plastic Surgery Lottery Party” went ahead in a London night club.

Miss Burges and Beryl Atkins, director of Birmingham cosmetic surgery clinic Transpire, defended the event and explained that the winner would need to pass strict screening before undergoing any surgery. Miss Atkins commented ‘This is not something we are doing on a whim,’  

The controversial event had received widespread criticism from surgeons and womens groups but one winner was drawn from the hat and is now in line to have £4,000 worth of plastic surgery of her choice.

After buying a £25 ticket to the event, Lesley Towle picked up the prize , which was staged in the Clubten nightclub in East London and filmed for Living TV.  

The runner up prize was a course of Botox, while other prizes included teeth whitening, semi-permanent makeup and pole dancing lessons.

According to consultant plastic surgeon and President of the BAAPS Fazel Fatah; 

“The General Medical Council should step in to protect patients and make it clear that they will review the license of any surgeon who becomes party to this abuse of trust by accepting to operate on patients who win such prizes or recruited with the inducement of cut price surgery or limited offers.”

Laughter lines, wrinkles and cosmetic surgery

Laughter Lines

The term is supposed to be taken as a compliment, but for many it’s no more than pointing out the visible aging of the skin, which is not something women like to hear.

With increasing pressure upon women to look younger for longer, and to maintain those taut, youthful bodies post-childbearing, the demand for cosmetic surgery procedures is ever-growing, but increased demand creates increased supply – and this in itself brings risk. When considering cosmetic surgery, it is important to select a registered Plastic or Cosmetic Surgeon who is fully accredited and experienced.

Mr Ali Juma is a leading Consultant Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgeon at the Spire Murrayfield Hospital Wirral in Merseyside.  Mr Juma is a member of the Plastic Surgery regulatory bodies in the UK, British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS).  He is also included on the General Medical Council Specialist Register.

Mr Juma is a Senior Plastic Surgeon in the NHS, an Honorary Lecturer for the University of Liverpool and a Surgical Examiner for the University of Edinburgh.  He has also recently received a fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons England ad eundem which is a further accreditation to his achievements.

He has a special clinical interest in breast surgery and provides cosmetic breast procedures, breast reconstructive surgery and a range of cosmetic surgery procedures.  Mr Juma spends time to understand the expectations of the patient, using his expertise to formulate a concise treatment plan which incorporates a comprehensive after care package.  He understands that women aren’t seeking purely physical change, but that this change is closely linked to their emotional wellbeing, self-esteem and confidence levels.

“I am always delighted when I hear that a patient who has undergone breast reconstructive surgery has had the confidence to wear a bikini on holiday” says Mr Juma.

Mr Juma delivers balanced advice on surgical procedures such as breast enlargement, breast uplift, breast reduction, breast reconstruction and breast asymmetry.  He performs body contouring surgery such as tummy tuck, liposuction, arm lift and post weight loss surgery in addition to facial procedures including nose reshaping, eye bag removal, face/neck lifts and ear correction.

Mr Juma says: “My strongest point may also be my weakest, that I am a perfectionist”. This drive for perfection is apparent in every element of his work, whether this is reconstructive surgery for a lady who has suffered breast cancer to a tummy tuck for a mother who has lost her sense of self, to his work with students and in research groups.

There are many reasons why people select cosmetic surgery or non surgical treatments, which range from wanting to remove a mole, smoothing out wrinkles, correcting sun damage, to rejuvenate skin or using such treatments as dermal fillers to achieve a more youthful look by adding volume to soften facial lines.

Whatever your reasons, take the time to speak with Mr Juma and learn more about what he can do for you.

Feel Younger Cosmetic Surgery – BAAPS Meeting 2010

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), who are the regulatory body for Plastic Surgery in the UK held their annual meeting on September 23rd 2010.

Mr Juma of Feel Younger Cosmetic Surgery based at Rodney Street in Liverpool is a member of BAAPS and during the meeting, the dangers of rogue cosmetic surgery providers were highlighted along with the new non compulsory register devised for the providers of injectable treatments such as botulinum toxin (Botox) and dermal fillers, Restylane and Juvederm Ultra.

A further agenda for discussion during the conference was the deregulation of intense pulse light (IPL) and laser treatments which is scheduled for October.  The potential dangers such as burns, redness and injury from laser treatments not performed correctly are already apparent according to a BAAPS member who claims to have noted a third of an increase in such incidents.

According to consultant plastic surgeon and outgoing President Nigel Mercer; “The proposed deregulation means that providers offering powerful laser treatments will not be overseen by the Care Quality Commission or indeed, anyone. In an environment where clinicians are continually asking for tighter controls it is absurd that the Government should actually be seeking to further deregulate

Injectables and “Botox courses” facilitated over half a day were also topics for discussion at the conference as some are specifically designed to cater for people who have no previous experience in this field.

According to Nigel Mercer;

“These weekend courses have sprung up around the country and a voluntary register such as the one launched last week will be powerless to stop them.

This course in particular even boasted of an attendee who felt that the fact he’d had diabetes and treated himself with insulin for years meant he was qualified to inject his family and friends with Botox!”

 Mr Ali Juma of Feel Younger Cosmetic Surgery Liverpool is a Senior Plastic Surgeon in the NHS, a full member of both Plastic Surgery regulatory bodies (BAAPS) and (BAPRAS) and is fully qualified to administer injectable treatments.  Mr Juma has 22 years medical experience, therefore for any advice please call 0151 707 9050 and treatments are available at:

Leading Liverpool Cosmetic Surgeon Mr Ali Juma has noted an upturn in non surgical cosmetic treatments during the 1st quarter if 2010.  Mr Juma from Feel Younger Cosmetic Surgery based on Rodney Street Liverpool has noticed an increase in the demand for wrinkle relaxing treatments (Botox) and in particular dermal filler injections, especially Juvederm Ultra.

Allergan UK have recently launched their national TV campaign promoting Juvederm Ultra and its properties, along with heavy marketing in glossy magazines and lifestyle medias especially for the female reader.

Juvederm is accelerating in popularity due to its wide coverage, but also due to the fact that the product has more longevity in comparison to the older brand of Restylane.  Typically, Restylane lasts for approximately 6 months where as its counterpart Juvederm stays active for up to 12 months, as per the guidelines from the manufacturer Allergan.

Mr Juma has also seen a significant rise in the popularity of non surgical treatments at his Chester, Wirral and Lancashire private practices.
