Medically Reviewed April 2023, by George Samouris - Consultant Aesthetic Plastic Surgeon
We caught up with Mr George Samouris, plastic surgeon at The Harley Medical Group who has been a well respected doctor for the past 18 years, and a plastic surgeon for the last 7 years.
Mr Samouris qualified as a doctor in 2004 following his studies at the University of Messina (Italy) and undertook his specialist training in some of the most prestigious hospitals in the UK and Greece. Serving as a Sergeant Physician at a Greek Air Force unit, he has also worked within the NHS and private hospitals across the UK for several years. He specialises in procedures such as breast enlargement, breast reduction, breast uplift, liposuction, abdominoplasty, rhinoplasty, ear reshaping, arm and thigh lift and upper eyelid blepharoplasty.
My advice would be to get all of the information possible and do some research before meeting the actual surgeon.
We see the patients in clinic and explain from our side what is best for them and if we can actually meet their expectations for surgery. We then go through the physical examination, explaining the risks and benefits of every procedure. I always advise my patients to look at all of the information available that’s easy to access online and look at some before and after images as well.
The Breast Augmentation is one of the most common procedures in cosmetic surgery. It is mostly done as a day case procedure, taking around an hour, with general anaesthetic most of the time. The access point would be just a small tiny incision under the crease of the breast and dissection of what we call a pocket or a space where the implant goes. This is always decided between the surgeon and the patient. Usually we offer a media of two cup sizes on every breast enlargement procedure.
There’s no better feeling than seeing a patient that is happy from their outcome.
Our lovely patient Janine, aged 39, recently visited us at our Harley Street Clinic for a Breast Augmentation. After breastfeeding all three of her children her breasts became saggy and disappeared taking her down to a AA cup. “I was really unhappy, I didn’t like looking at myself in the mirror, I didn’t want to go swimming or wear bikinis or anything like that. Everything I wanted to wear, I had to think how I could fit a padded bra underneath and if it would show.” After lots of research, Janine chose to go with Dr George Samouris at The Harley Medical Group for her procedure.
Sophie came to see Dr George Samouris after her incredible weight loss journey left her feeling unhappy with her breasts.
“I lost 7 stone so my bra size went from an F to a nothing and there was a lot of excess skin. I knew someone that had come to The Harley Medical Group and I ended up having the same surgeon as them. I think when you know someone that’s had a really good experience you know what you’re going to get, so I came to The Harley Medical Group on her recommendation. I was really impressed and decided to go with them for my surgery.”
