Neck Surgery

The ageing process is natural and commonly the skin of the neck becomes thinner and loses elasticity. A neck lift can alter the contours of the neck and lower face. Find out more about neck lift surgery at Brighton Plastic Surgery.

Breast Surgery

Breast Surgery

Women consider breast surgery for many reasons, often after pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight changes and cancer treatments. Our surgeons can assist in all areas of breast surgery. Find out more about breast surgery at Brighton Plastic Surgery.
