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.”

Facial Rejuvenation – Merseyside

If you have made the decision to turn back the years and are seeking a more youthful look, whether under the knife or with non surgical procedures, the first step is to select an experienced Cosmetic Surgeon to provide advice on the options available and to understand your expectations.

There are many surgeons to pick from, and with glossy ads featuring in the pages of magazines, promoting slick clinics promising great prices, gimmicks and fantastic results, this does not necessarily reflect the quality of the surgeons work.

 “The main thing I wanted from a surgeon was honesty and the ability to carry out the surgery I wanted, in a professional, friendly manner and with my best interests being top priority. All of these I found in Mr Juma plus more”. LG from Manchester

Recommendations from friends, family and former patients are a great starting point, but your priority should be to check the qualifications of your surgeon, such as registration on the General Medical Council and with the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS).

According to the statistics from the BAAPS, last year 4,756 facial surgery procedures were performed in the UK, of which 4,493 were women, an increase of 12% from the previous year.  There has also been a significant demand for non surgical facial rejuvenation in the form of wrinkle relaxing injections, dermal fillers and chemical peels.

Any surgical procedure or treatment carries an element of risk, which can be reduced by selecting a good Cosmetic Surgeon, who will explore your medical history and advise you how to achieve the best outcome by fully explaining your pre operative requirements (i.e. stopping smoking prior to surgery) and post operative or post treatment plan.

Your checklist

  • Research qualifications
  • Consider the risks & benefits
  • Understand the recovery period
  • Do not let price be the deciding factor
  • Decide what you wish to achieve
  • Consider non surgical options

“A face lift procedure may be taxing but enjoyable, as the moment you see the patient at the first follow up consultation and see the smile on their face, it makes you feel as a plastic surgeon a perfectionism which still excites, as I have achieved my goal of having the privelage to give my patient the outome which we both agreed to”. By Mr Juma Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeon, Liverpool.

Mr Juma is a Senior Cosmetic Surgeon at the Spire Murrayfield Hospital Wirral who has a special clinical interest in facial surgery and provides the latest facial aesthetic treatments to help you achieve a natural enhancement.

Botox wrinkle treatment at Rodney Street Liverpool Merseyside

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

Are you seeking a natural looking wrinkle treatment?

Many patients return to Feel Younger Cosmetic Surgery at Rodney Street in Liverpool for a “natural” anti aging effect which is administered by a fully registered and experienced Plastic Surgeon, Mr Ali Juma.  Mr Juma assesses the expectations of his patients in clinic during consultation and takes time to discuss the permutations of this popular treatment.

When making an initial enquiry at the clinic, a common and frequent request is that the patient wishes to be able to retain some facial movement instead of a completely “frozen” appearance.  Most patients favour the treatment for providing a smoother, rested and refreshed  look which lasts for an average of 3 months, and which can serve as a huge confidence boost to many.

Selecting a highly experienced clinician to perform this anti aging procedure is crucial to minimise any complications in association with Botulinum Toxin treatment, such as bruising, swelling, drooping of the brow or ptosis.  Mr Juma Cosmetic Surgeon carries out a full consultation prior to any injections to ensure the safety of the patient and to eliminate any contraindications which may arise from pre existing health conditions or medications.

How often should you have Botox?

Some patients opt for treatment every 3/4 months, whilst others may prefer to keep it for a special occasion such as a wedding or birthday hence making the choice an individual preference. 

What can Botulinum be used for?

• Frown Lines
• Worry Lines
• Periorbital Wrinkles (Crow’s Feet)
• Bunny Lines
• Brow Lift
• Brow Asymmetry
• Drooping Mouth Corners
• Lip Wrinkles
• Platysma Stranding (“Neck Banding”)
• Chest Wrinkles and Vertical Lines
• Hyperhidrosis – Severe Underarm Sweating
• Ophthamological Conditions and Dystonia

Wrinkle relaxing injections – effective non surgical treatment Liverpool

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

Wrinkle relaxing injections consisting of Botox have become extremely popular over the past several years driven by the motivation to remain youthful and beautiful predominantly by women in society today.  Botox is a protein which originates from Clostridium Botulinum, it is simple to administer and lasts for approximately 3 months per treatment. 

When the Botox is injected into the muscle, it  blocks impulses from the nerves which temporarily paralyze the muscles that cause wrinkles, thus allowing them to relax further.  The  result is that the process of wrinkle formation is minimised causing a smoothing effect which is visible almost after several days and which continues to improve over the next two weeks.

The optimum effects of Botox injections can be seen in 14-21 days and results may vary on individuals depending on the severity of wrinkles and the strength of muscles treated.  The results of a treatment  lasts  for approximately three  months after which most patients gradually return to their former appearance.   Botox injections can be repeated every 3-4 months and patients who have had Botox treatments over 12 months may only require further treatments every few months.

While Botox has been safely used by millions of patients, it is recommended that pregnant women, or women who are breastfeeding their babies as well as patients suffering from neurologic disease should not use Botox.

It is recommended not to lie flat for 6 hours after treatment or drink alcohol on the evenig after injections, also Mr Juma advises not to take blood thinning medications prior to treatment such as Aspirin, Warfarin, Brufen, Nurofen or Ibuprofen.

Mr Juma of Feel Younger Cosmetic Surgery Liverpool provides a full non surgical service in addition to cosmetic surgery procedures.  He is an experienced Cosmetic Surgeon registered with the Plastic Surgery regulatory organisations and who has clinics at the following locations:

Rodney Street – Liverpool

Spire Hospital – Wirral

Spire Hospital – Blackpool

Nuffield Hospital – Chester

It is important to select an experienced clinician with many years experience when considering such a treatment on the facial area, so please feel free to call for some advice 0151 707 9050

  

  

 

 

 

 

Laughter lines, wrinkles and cosmetic surgery

Monday, January 10th, 2011

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.

Mr Ali Juma Cosmetic Surgeon on BBC Radio Lancashire

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Mr Ali Juma Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeon in Liverpool was featured on BBC Radio Lancashire again on 2nd February 2010 in response to the BAAPS statistics, released on 1st February 2010.

These figures highlighted the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed during 2009 for both men and women, which was the male breast reduction or “moob” operation, clinically known as Gynaecomastia.  This procedure has escalated by 80% since the year before and Mr Juma was asked why he thought this was.

Mr Juma was able to give his own experience and view on the matter based on his private practices for cosmetic surgery in Liverpool, Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire.  He explained that cosmetic surgery for men is more openly discussed over recent years and has become more popular due to the media.  CertainTV shows promote awareness regarding cosmetic surgery, along with other similar series such as Embarrasing Bodies, featuring embarrassing issues and which outlines positive ways to correct problems or seek treatment.

The advice from Mr Juma is always to research a surgeon and seek their accreditations, for example the GMC (General Medical Council) BMA (British Medical Association) and memberships such as the BAAPS (British Assocation Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) or other regulatory bodies in the UK.  It is extremely important to select a registered and accredited surgeon and feel at ease with that surgeon to enable a patient to express their expectation of surgery/treatment.

Even the smallest correction can make a positive impact and may enhance the life of a patient.
