Are you an English Rose?

January 19th, 2012

In January we usually find ourselves at our palest, waiting earnestly for the Summer. Yet, did you know that having your moles screened whilst your skin is at its palest is more desirable than when you have a tan.

A lack of suntan means that any moles or lesions you have will be even more visible to our specially trained nurses. So consider having your moles checked before heading off to sunnier climes.

People with paler complexions such as the true English Roses among us do have a statistically higher chance of developing skin cancer, so a good knowledge and awareness of your own skin is always important.

Please, give our Customer Care Manager a call today on 0800 112 3383  or email her for more information and to book your appointment. We have clinics in Ashtead and Cobham at times to suit your lifestyle. Take the first step in skin awareness.

UK surgeons reiterate caution on controversial implants

December 28th, 2011

If concerned, or with adverse symptoms, see your surgeon.

In light of news that the French Government may consider explantation (removal of implants) for the 30,000 women in France who have controversial PIP devices filled with non-medical grade silicone, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons have reiterated guidance and urged calm.

Mr Geoffrey Wilson, consultant plastic surgeon at Surrey Plastic Surgery Services and Surrey Mole Screening is a full member of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and wishes to confirm that he has never used PIP implants in any of his procedures.

According to consultant plastic surgeon and former BAAPS President Douglas McGeorge;

“The message here is not to panic – our main advice remains unchanged. Women with PIP implants should be checked by the clinic where they had their surgery and can then be monitored afterwards. These implants have a higher failure rate so there will be women who might choose to have their implants removed before that happens, whereas others will be happy to be monitored.”

Consultant plastic surgeon and BAAPS President Fazel Fatah says;

“There has been no new scientific evidence to indicate that these implants have a link to cancer – however, if women are concerned or experience adverse symptoms they should see their surgeon, to discuss options such as having a scan to determine whether there is any weakening or rupture. If there is, we reiterate our previous recommendations in line with the French agency AFSSAPS: to have both implants removed.”
