Happy Christmas! Seasons Greetings! Cool Yule! Whatever greeting floats your boat, keep out of A&E. The plastic surgeons would love you to be safe at home instead of having a hand injury repaired following your insistence on sawing that Christmas tree base down to size, or a plastic horse extracted from your bundle of joy’s nostril.

Historically patients complaining of excessive sweating, particularly under the arms, has been both a big problem and one that has been difficult to properly treat. Historically this often would involve surgery into the armpit to try and disconnect the sweat glands from the skin and invariably they would grow back. A more aggressive approach is by carrying out a sympathectomy to the cervical sympathetic chain, which is quite a major procedure, not without risk, performed by a vascular surgeon.
RHINOPLASTY - a patient tells it like it is

Sometimes surgery does not go quite as planned and a patient comes to us, wanting previous surgery by another surgeon put right. They choose DRG Plastic Surgery for the experience and honesty that they know inform Mr David Gateley and Miss Victoria Rose’s decisions: surgeons at the top of their game who tell it like it is.

I have a friend who talks about her body as if it were a decrepit building: ‘Got to shore up the crumbling edifice!’ she laughs, surveying her face in the mirror. Another references hair removal as if tackling some overgrown waste ground. Rather than celebrating our bodies we wage war on them. Well, why not call a temporary ceasefire? Hang out a white flag and cease hositilities for a moment?
