expert support

The Harley Medical Group is founded on care and our Medical Professionals are at the heart of this.

Our Plastic Surgeons are highly skilled, qualified and innovative and also have collective years of experience.

The General Medical Council (GMC) lists all Surgeons in the UK and those that specialise in Plastic Surgery. We accept membership of various professional associations, such as the British Association of Plastic Surgeons (BAPS) and the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS).

We will not accept a Cosmetic Surgeon unless they are on the UK's General Medical Council as a Plastic Surgeon. As well as being registered, we also believe it is vital that your Cosmetic Surgeon has plenty of experience. In fact, your Plastic Surgeon should be carrying out Cosmetic Surgery operations daily.

Our Medical Advisory Committee of Plastic Surgeons is headed by an independent medical advisor who was previously an NHS consultant in Plastic Surgery. We provide the highest standards of treatment and care in our hospitals.

All our medical staff are approachable, competent and available to you 24 hours a day. Each of our fully staffed clinics are recognised centres of excellence in Cosmetic Surgery.

Causes

Sun damage and sun spots

As we get older, our skin, particularly on the face, starts to show signs of ageing and this can be difficult to come to terms with when we’re used to having radiant, youthful-looking skin. The most common characteristics of ageing skin are lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, sun spots and sun damage, all of which can be treated effectively and painlessly.

Smile lines and wrinkles around the mouth

Our faces are what people first see and often what they remember most about us so it can be difficult when we look in the mirror and see that we’re showing signs of ageing. Noticing lines and wrinkles between the nose and mouth, or sagging skin around the eyes or along the jawline can be upsetting and make us look much older than we feel. 

Read more

Age spots and liver spots

As we get older our skin changes and it’s completely natural to see fine lines, wrinkles and age spots appear. It can be a difficult transition for many men and women but there are a number of very effective treatments available at The Harley Medical Group. The appearance of age spots – flat and oval shaped patches of skin - on the face and body can be dramatically reduced, leaving you with more even, younger looking skin.

Freckles and Pigmentation

The average Briton has approximately 35 Freckles on their body, the number of which can increase at hotter times of the year and as a result of sun exposure. While some proudly sport their Freckles, many people can feel self-conscious about this blemish and take steps to conceal their Freckles from view.

Pigmentation

Suffering with an uneven skin tone caused by pigmentation can be really damaging to our self-esteem and it’s often difficult to cover with make-up. Pigmentation – the appearance of red or brown patches on the skin - is a very common form of skin damage that can be unsightly and ageing and until recently it has been difficult to treat.

Uneven skin tone

Everyone wants to enjoy a glowing, vibrant complexion but the reality is that millions of us have an uneven skin tone. When patches of skin on the face and body appear lighter or darker than surrounding areas, it can lead to a mottled appearance which makeup often can’t hide. If you’re worried about the appearance of your skin, it’s important to know that it’s completely normal and there are some quick, easy and pain-free ways to dramatically improve it.

Read more

Tired and dull skin

We all want bright, youthful-looking skin and a well-balanced, clear complexion, but our busy lives, city living and bad habits can make this seem unachievable for many people. While it’s all too easy to give up on your skin and rely on make-up, there have never been more quick, easy and non-surgical ways to brighten the complexion, reduce the visible signs of ageing and regain that youthful glow.

Stretch marks

Stretch marks are incredibly common among both men and women and their sudden appearance can be distressing, particularly as most people think these unsightly marks are impossible to get rid of. Stretch marks can appear anywhere on the body but tend to be most common on the stomach, bottom, thighs and breasts – those areas of the body that are more prone to changing shape and size. How your stretch marks look depends on your skin type and colour, where they are on the body, the extent of them and how long you’ve had them for. No matter whether you’ve got lots or just a few, our laser treatment can dramatically reduce their appearance, and often get rid of them completely.

Scars

Many of us have scars from accidents or surgery and while some are small and unnoticeable, others can really affect confidence and self-esteem, particularly if they’re large or in an obvious place such as the face.  Most people think of scars as something they have to live with but effective laser treatments mean this is no longer the case.

Adult Acne

Suffering with adult acne is really difficult and it often feels unfair as many of us think this common skin condition is left behind in our teenage years.  However, millions of adults have acne so if you’ve just noticed a change in your skin or you’re sick of flare-ups, don’t despair - there are effective treatments available.

Acne scars

Having adult acne or acne scars can really damage confidence and self-esteem and that’s why it’s important to know that there are some really effective treatments available. Instead of suffering with acne scarring and battling to cover them with make-up, read about the acne scar treatments, including laser treatments that are available at your nearest clinic.

Spider veins and thread veins

Visible veins on the face and body can really damage your confidence, but you’re not alone, there are some really effective treatments available. While they can occur just about anywhere on the body, thread veins (also known as spider veins) are most commonly found on the cheeks and nose and on the legs. They are blood vessels that have become swollen when they twist and turn, meaning they become visible through the skin. We can treat these tiny, irritating veins wherever they occur. 

Read more

Rosacea

When your skin doesn’t look as smooth and blemish free as you’d like it can be difficult to feel completely confident about yourself. Rosacea is a very common skin condition that causes redness and pimples on the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead and often looks like adult acne. As well as causing the sensitive skin on your face to be red and sometimes inflamed and swollen, Rosacea can lead to soreness and a burning sensation around the eyes and eyelids.

Spots

Spots can be a nuisance or they can be really damaging to how we feel about ourselves, particularly if they’re red, raised or are painful, like acne. 

Read more

Brow lines

Brow lines and wrinkles are a completely normal and natural part of the ageing process, but that doesn’t make them any easier to deal with if they’re making you look older than you feel. Unsightly brow lines or crow's feet around the corners of the eyes can make you appear older, tired and even sad, but they’re no longer something that you have to put up with.

Excessive Hair Growth

However, there are ways to remove and permanently reduce excess face and body hair safely and painlessly.

Read more

Ingrown hair

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

For millions of women in the UK Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a part of life. It is a very common condition in which cysts filled with fluid grow on the ovaries. While in a lot of cases these cysts cause no health issues at all, they can result in hormonal imbalances, as the ovaries start to produce more male hormones than normal.

Crow's feet and under eye wrinkles

We all start to notice wrinkles as we get older, usually around the eyes and between the nose and mouth. While these are a natural part of the ageing process, it doesn’t make them any easier to get used to and often they make us look much older than we feel.  Fine lines around the eyes are often known as crow’s feet or laughter lines and they tend to be particularly noticeable or appear first because the skin around the eyes is thinner than on the rest of the face.

Lines and wrinkles

Lines and wrinkles on the face are a completely normal and natural part of the ageing process, so if you’re worried about looking older, it’s important to know that you’re not alone and there are plenty of great treatments that can help. Around the eyes, lines are known as crow’s feet, while deeper wrinkles between the eyebrows are known as frown lines and around the mouth as laughter lines. Whether you’re just starting to notice them or they’ve been bothering you for a while, lines and wrinkles don’t have to be a part of getting older if you don’t want them to be.

Read more

Thin lips and wrinkles

Some people have naturally thin lips while for others a loss of collagen as we get older can mean lips aren’t as plump and full as we might like. Another sign of ageing can be the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the lips, which often make the mouth look puckered.

Read more

Sagging eyelids

Sagging of the upper eyelids is a very common sign of ageing and one which most of us will experience as we get older. This visual sign of getting older can be particularly difficult to come to terms with as old-looking eyes can age the rest of our face dramatically. Aside from making us look older than we actually are, wrinkles around the eyes and droopy eyes can affect our vision if left untreated.

Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)

Sweating a lot can be very embarrassing, especially at work, in important meetings, on a date or when using public transport. But it’s important to remember that excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is not an uncommon condition and it can be easily treated.
