What are bunions?

Bunions are a bone deformity of the joint of the toe, appearing on the outer area of the foot. This condition is developed over time and induces the big toe to curve towards the rest of the toes further causing the joint to stick out.

Can I prevent bunions?

Bunions are a hard condition to prevent due to their hereditary and congenital factor. If anyone in your family suffers from bunions there is a high probability that you can get bunions too.

However, there are some tips to minimise their appearance. Wear shoes that feet comfortably as ill-fitting shoes can contribute to the development of the bunion and speed up the process and try to avoid wearing heels higher than 4cm.

How can I treat my bunions?

There are many non-surgical treatments available to minimise the discomfort of bunions such as corrective braces or bunion pad, however, these are temporary remedies. If you are looking for a long term solution to this issue and feel confident showing your feet, bunion surgery is the best option.

This surgery is performed by Orthopaedic surgeon Dr Andrea Bianchi who has more than 15 years of experience and performs over 1.000 minimally-invasive bunion surgeries per year.

The procedure starts by performing tiny incisions of 2-3 millimetres so the surgical dental burrs can go through to help correct the deformity and re-arrange the bones on the foot. Since no fixative devices are used, Dr Bianchi proceeds to create precise geometric fractures on the bone re-align it; this way the foot can heal naturally at its own pace. Patients can walk out of the clinic after the procedure without the assistance of any crutches.

The T-Lift with Mr Davood Fallahdar

According to British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) the number of facelifts performed on women had dropped by 44%. There are many aesthetic doctors now with amazing skills that are able to almost replicate the effects of a facelift using non-surgical techniques such as botox, filler and thread lifts and with our lifestyles becoming increasingly busy and demanding, the downtime often associated with surgical procedures such as a facelift just is not an option anymore.

The first place is show visible signs of ageing is our face, the skin often starts to sag and lines and wrinkles can appear almost overnight! As our social media networks, magazines and newspapers are filled with the faces of seemingly never ageing celebrities we can all start to feel the pressure a little bit to look good and more importantly, feel good about our appearance.

In our Harley Street clinic, we are able to offer a relatively new procedure titled the Temporal Lift, or the T-Lift. Performed by expert surgeon Mr Davood Fallahdar, the T-Lift is an ideal alternative to the facelift. The procedure has one incision point, one stitch and is all performed under local anaesthetic with minimal downtime too, most patients are able to return to work the next day.

Mr Davood Fallahdar is highly qualified Board Certified Consultant Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon who specialises facial surgery including Rhinoplasties, Temporal / One Stitch Facelift and Blepharoplasty procedures. Having been a plastic surgeon for 20 years, he has years of experience including previously performing microsurgery on cancer patients in the NHS. He is on the General Medical Council’s specialist register for plastic surgery, and is a member of British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) both of which have very strict codes of ethics and conduct.Temporal Lift T-Lift london before after photo

The Temporal facelift targets the upper face, sculpts the cheekbones and jawline to improve jowls, and can work to also lift the eyebrows and eyelids. You will firstly have local anaesthetic injected into the area which will sting a little but after that you should not feel any pain. Your surgeon will then make an incision above the hairline at the temples. The skin is then separated from the fat and muscle below and the underlying muscle and SMAS membranes are tightened. The skin is then pulled back and any excess is removed and the incision is closed with dissolvable sutures.

In some cases, a blepharoplasty may be performed at the same time as a T-Lift, especially if the eyes are a problem area, this will all be discussed in a consultation with your surgeon who will only suggest what they believe is going to give you the best results.

The local anaesthetic will leave you feeling relatively pain free post-procedure. There is a low risk of swelling and bruising. Although some patients do choose to return to work following the procedure, we do recommend that you take a day or 2 afterwards to relax especially if your work is strenuous or in a dusty/dirty environment.

All testimonials are provided voluntarily by our patients and clients and all photos and videos have been consented to and have not been altered in any way.

If it is more the lower face that is concerning you, then we also offer the ‘One Stitch Facelift’ which is very similar to the T-Lift however it instead targets the mid-face and can improve the jaw line. The incision is made along the hairline around the top of the ear. Your surgeon will be able to offer their advice on which procedure is going to give you the best results.

The results from both procedures will be able to seen instantly, you can even ask Mr Fallahdar to show you the results half way through the procedure giving you a direct side by side comparison which often dispels any feelings of nervousness about the procedure.

The procedure is also ideal for anyone who is concerned about friends, family or co-workers knowing that they have had something done. You will not be required to wear any bandages during your recovery, you should have very minimal bruising if any but this can be easily covered up with make-up which you are allowed to wear pretty much immediately after the procedure, taking great care to avoid the incisions and being very gentle when applying. The scars are also well hidden in the hairline and the results are designed to be very natural.

Everyone is well aware of what it looks like to be ‘over-done’ in the world of aesthetics and cosmetic surgery and it is always our aim at The Private Clinic to deliver natural results. Patients who have had the T-Lift describe friends complimenting them on how well they look but they don’t ask what they have had done. Of course, the T-Lift will not stop you ageing but, it can help you to look better as ageing does continue to occur. Lastly, the one stitch facelift and temporal facelift are not as dramatic as a facelift can be and are ideal choices for anyone in their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.

Living with Bunions: The Treatment

A bunion, also known as Hallax Valgus, is a deformity of the foot located around the edge of the foot near the big toe. Bunions have a bony and lumpy appearance and often cause the big toe to push the other toes, joining them together, causing the bunion to further stick outwards. Some of the common symptoms caused form bunions can be pain, swelling and redness, even though these may vary between patients.

bunion surgery london

What causes Bunions?

Bunions are can be formed due to several factors including congenital factors, meaning that if someone in your family has bunions you may be congenitally pre-disposed to having them too.

Bunions can further be a cause of wearing ill-fitting, wearing high heels and uncomfortable footwear or can be due to the anatomy of your foot, which can also play a role in the development of bunions. If you are flat-footed and bunion run in your family is advised that you keep a close eye on your foot as people who suffer from this condition have a higher risk of developing bunions.

What will happen if I do not treat my bunions?

If you do not treat your bunions there is a high possibility this can lead to further issues such as increased pain, difficulty to walk or wear shoes and the risk of developing a hammertoe.

How can I treat my bunion?

There are several ways in which you can help relieve the pain and improve on comfort when wearing shoes, such as bunion pads or bunion corrective braces. However, these are short term solutions, if you are looking for a long term solution for this issue a mini-invasive bunionectomy is the solution.

Bunion Surgery at The Private Clinic.

At The Private Clinic, we exclusively offer a minimally-invasive keyhole bunion removal surgery.

First, our Orthopaedic surgeon Dr Andrea Bianchi will address your suitability via an X-ray of your feet at the initial consultation.

On the day of the surgery, local anaesthetic will be used to numb the foot to be treated before commencing the procedure. With the help and guidance of a special radiological device, the surgeon is then able to proceed to make small incisions of 2-3 millimetres around the bones, referred to as geometric fractures. These fractures do not require the insertion of any fixative devices such as pins or screws to re-align the foot. With this technique, the foot is rather left to heal naturally. Thereafter, your foot will be bandaged using a personalised bandage technique that aids the physiological healing process to spontaneously restructure the foot.

Once the procedure is finalised you will be encouraged to put some weight on your foot, this helps to readjust the natural movement of the foot. You can walk out of the hospital without the need for crutches.

Acne treatment near me

A perfect complexion and clear skin are at the top of the majority of peoples list of desires. Acne is one of the most common skin complaints we see at our London Skin Clinic and our patients have long since left the school corridors meaning they are usually suffering from what is known as ‘adult acne’.

For some, they may not have experienced acne at all in their youth and it is more of a recent occurrence but for others, they may have always suffered with it and are simply fed up of dealing with what feels like an adolescent problem in their 30s.

There is no clear reason why one person may be prone to acne over another and the exact cause of acne is still unknown but what we do know is that hormones or menopausal changes can play a big part in contributing to adult acne.

80% of adult acne occurs in women and this is due to things like the monthly cycle, pregnancy, and polycystic ovary syndrome are all known to increase sebum production and contribute towards the risk of adult acne. Of course, this does not mean that men are immune from acne and they can still experience excess sebum production which is instead usually linked to genetics which can make men in their 20s and 30s particularly susceptible to spots or cysts.

There are a whole range of acne ‘cures’ and treatments available from face masks and cleansing washes to sudocrem and toothpaste but finding the perfect treatment to suit you and your skin, you often need a little bit of specialist advice which you will be able to find at our specialist skin clinics across the UK.

Stretched Earlobe Repair London

Earlobe repair is becoming increasingly common in our clinics. As fashions change and people get older, body modifications such as tribal earlobes they made when they were younger are not always favoured as much in the more professional working world. At the same time fashion choices such as larger and heavier earrings in the past may have caused damage to your earlobe resulting in what is known as split ear.

At The Private Clinic we have treatments available to treat both tribal earlobes and split earlobes.

Tribal Earlobes

Tribal ear piercing is body modification that stems from an original ear piercing. Cone shaped tapers are often used to stretch the ear piercing hole to allow larger pieces of jewellery often known as plugs or tunnels to be worn.

When it comes to getting your earlobe back to its original shape it can be difficult especially those who have stretched to over 10mm in size.

Tribal Earlobe or Stretched Earlobe Repair

There are a couple of techniques for tribal earlobe repair surgery and which one your surgeon decides to use will depend on the size of your stretched lobe. Smaller stretched lobes often only require a couple of stitches but those with larger earlobes may require excess flesh to be removed before the lobe is then reshaped back to its natural curve.

Stretched earlobe repair is performed under local anaesthetic and takes around 15-20 minutes per ear. The earlobe will be closed up with absorbable stitches and you will have small dressings placed on the ear. The majority of patients are able to return to work and their daily activities the next day and the overall healing time for tribal earlobe repair is 4-6 weeks for the stitches to absorb and the wounds to heal.

 

Split Earlobes

Split earlobes are usually just a result from wearing earrings for a long time. As we age the skin on our earlobes loses its elasticity and relaxes which can then lengthening the lobe and cause the hole of the ear piercing to sit low on the lobe and on some occasions the hole itself can become stretched and can eventually split the lobe completely. Split earlobes can also be caused from trauma where the earring is pulled forcefully through the piercing hole.

Split Earlobes Repair

Split earlobe repair is a fairly straightforward procedure that is usually carried out under local anaesthetic. It takes around 20-30 minutes to perform or shorter if only one ear is being treated. There is very minimal downtime involved and patients are often back to work and their daily activities the next day. It will take 4-6 weeks to see a fully healed result which will be when the stitches have been absorbed and the wounds to heal. Your surgeon will then advise you on scar management and when you can have your ears pierced again should you wish to do so.

Stretched or Split earlobe repair is available at our London Harley Street Clinic which is easily commutable from surrounding areas including; Bayswater, Hyde Park, Green Park, Soho, Notting hill, Kings Road, Kensington, South Kensington, Chelsea, Fulham, Battersea, Regents Park, St Johns Wood, Primrose Hill, Victoria, West End, Marylebone, Knightsbridge, Belgravia, Mayfair, Holland Park, Earls court and Fitzrovia.

Our abdominoplasty or tummy tuck portfolio includes:

  • Full Abdominoplasty– This type of tummy tuck is indicated for patients who suffer from a vast amount of excess skin. The full tummy tuck is the traditional abdominoplasty where excess skin and fat around the stomach are removed and any torn muscles are repaired.

  • Extended Abdominoplasty – This tummy tuck is ideal for patients who not only have excess skin but also excess fat around their lower back, flanks and upper hip areas. All the excess skin, as well as fat, is removed and any muscles that are torn are also repaired.
  • Mini Abdominoplasty– Recommended for patients who have a reduced amount of excess skin or tissue around the area above the pubic region and under the belly button and has a differentiated wrinkle appearance. This procedure tightens the area and repairs any torn muscles.

  • Brazilian Tummy Tuck– This type of tummy tuck is indicated for patients who suffer from having more excess skin than fat. The procedure combines liposuction and the abdominoplasty. By including the liposuction, all the stubborn fat deposits present around the abdomen, waist and flanks is removed providing a more contoured and defined figure. The main benefit of incorporating the liposuction is that speeds up the healing process when compared to the full abdominoplasty, further making it a day case.

Laser Hair Removal, Near Me

Hair removal can be a time consuming and painful (literally) chore for many both men and women. This is why many people are now opting for laser hair removal treatments to reduce the amount of unwanted hair in different areas of the body. Winter is the most popular time of the year to do so before summer arrives.

If you are one of those people who has decided you have had enough with traditional hair removal treatments and are ready to get laser hair removal, this blog post is for you. We will be covering the main things to look for before choosing a clinic:

  • Check the Clinic’s Certifications: It is important to research if your clinic of choice is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This is a public body that regulates and inspects all social care and health services in the UK to ensure they meet the correct standards.
  • Find out if they are qualified practitioners:  Ensure the practitioners have all the qualifications needed and are professionally trained to perform the laser hair removal treatment to avoid unwanted results or complications.
  • Ethics and Safety: Review the clinic’s health and safety ethics to guarantee you will get the best results and that your safety is their priority.
  • Aftercare: At any clinic, your practitioner should provide some guidelines about all the aftercare that needs to be done after and before your treatments.  As well as follow up appointments if required.
  • Ensure the clinic does a patch test before your treatment: It is very important that the clinic requires an initial patch test before the treatment to assess your suitability.
  • Check before and after photos: Looking at before and after photos of the treatment can help to give you an indication of what to expect and the results that can be achieved.
  • Patient reviews and testimonials: This can be a useful source of further insight into the clinic’s customer experience. Reviews can give you a more realistic indication of what to expect from the clinic. The most popular review websites are Google Reviews, Trustpilot or Facebook reviews.

Why is the bunion surgery technique so innovative, and what does the bunion procedure involve?

How is minimally invasive bunion surgery different to other bunion correction techniques?

The extensive downtime required after traditional bunion surgery has meant that many people choose to not go ahead with surgery and instead rely on remedies such as bunion pads, paracetamol and purchasing wide shoes which can come at quite a cost.

Here at The Private Clinic of Harley Street London we are excited to be able to offer a minimally invasive bunion removal surgical procedure that has been inspired by keyhole surgery techniques.

Developed by Orthopaedic Consultant Surgeon, Dr Bianchi who will be performing the procedure at our London bunion clinic. This is bunion surgery with a difference as patients are able to walk straight after surgery, have minimal downtime and more importantly no fixative devices such as screws or wires which are usually what causes patients discomfort post-surgery.

Dr Bianchi who has been 15 years’ experience and performs 1,200 minimally invasive bunion procedures performed each year explains to us how minimally invasive keyhole bunion surgery at The Private Clinic is different to other bunion surgery techniques;

Why we don’t use metal screws

Introducing an external element such as metal screws into the body will always be very invasive. For example, the metal fixative devices used in bunion surgery can create problems such as the joints in the foot not being able to find a natural posture, which can result in a huge amount of discomfort post-surgery. Because of this, in some cases a second operation may be required to remove them. In addition, the healing from this kind of surgery can take a prolonged period of time and in some instances crutches are needed before the foot is able to bear weight.

In order to address these issues with standard bunion surgery, we have developed a more natural and biological method without using fixative devices (screws, plates or wires). Through my research over 20 years, it has been proven that self-stabilizing geometric fractures can be made on short-bones (without the need for immobilisation) with long term results. This not only means that healing and recovery is much quicker and easier, but that greater joint mobility is achieved after the surgery, compared to standard techniques.

*All images, videos and testimonials are based on the personal experiences of our patients and represent individual body shapes and results. Results may vary from person to person. All testimonials are provided voluntarily by our patients and clients and all photos and videos have been consented to and have not been altered in any way.

Each bunion procedure carried out at The Private Clinic is customised to the patient, and this is not a ‘one-size fits all’ approach. The bone is fractured, re-aligned and bandaged in such a way that creates the perfect result for the patient’s anatomy and better comfort and joint articulation. The absence of screws means that the joint is not fixed in one place, it can move freely.

In addition, recovery from the minimally invasive method does not require the immobilisation of the foot so the patient can go back to walking immediately post-surgery without the need for crutches. Thanks to the special bandaging technique and supportive shoe, the patient is able to walk unaided straight after the operation.

Why is the bunion surgery technique so innovative, and what does the bunion procedure involve?

The PBS technique quashes the concept that every fracture needs to be immobilised in order to heal. After being realigned, the fractures made during surgery are left free, so the foot heals according to the individual’s load-bearing needs and not according to a ‘pre-established’ standard.

Creating series of geometric fractures (a small, precise fracture used within the PBS technique) without forcing the bone into place using fixative devices, allows the foot to heal naturally. As the PBS technique does not force the bone to repair, the bones and joints heal in a natural position, which results in greater functionality and comfort in the joint.

All testimonials are provided voluntarily by our patients and clients and all photos and videos have been consented to and have not been altered in any way.

Small, surgical, dental burs are used to correct the deformity and modify the bones of the forefoot. These are inserted through small, approximately 2-3-millimetre incisions in the skin. The surgeon guides the bur using a special radiological device to help him “see” the bones and the burs. The most important innovation of the technique is that it does not use fixative devices (screws or wires). This allows the fractures to heal according to the requirements of the individual’s foot.

After surgery, the foot is bandaged and taped using a technique specifically developed by my medical team and this must be worn for at least 20 days.

What exactly is a geometric fracture?

A geometric fracture refers to way the bones are carefully fractured with precision and then realigned into a straight position. The fractured bone is then bandaged without the need for screws to keep it in place, promoting the natural healing of the foot.

Are you able to guarantee 100% a solid joint between the bones that has only been cut with its method of firmly wrapping the foot?

No surgery is 100% guaranteed. However the PBS this method has a 98% success rate.

FUE Hair Transplant UK

Now more than ever men are looking into hair transplant procedures.  Research has shown a projected global increase of 23.6% of hair transplants during the period from 2018 to 2025 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE, 2018). This is due to the improvements in hair restoration technique such as the FUE hair transplant procedure which are able to achieve outstanding results and require minimal downtime.

In this blog post, you will be able to find information about the FUE latest hair transplantation procedure.

Hair Transplant UK

What is the FUE hair transplant?

FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction and is an innovative hair transplant technique, suitable for a variety of hair loss stages, applicable for a broad spectrum of hair loss stages. This hair restoration procedure introduces distinctive changes when compared to the traditional FUT hair transplant procedure. The FUE hair transplant technique has minimal downtime; it doesn’t leave a linear scar and there are no stitches.

What can I expect from the procedure?

At The Private Clinic, you will be able to expect the following for your FUE hair transplant procedure.

The procedure will start by selecting the donor area (typically is on the back of the head) from where the donor hairs will be extracted to then be re-implanted into the treatment area. The treatment is performed under local anesthetic.

The surgeon will proceed to extract the hairs on your scalp with their necessary glands, through the use of a specialist micro-punch device, that has a 1mm diameter. This device enables the separation between the hair and the surrounding tissue, minimizing the trauma around the area.

Following this, tiny incisions will be made using a non-surgical needle into the scalp which helps to leave the affected area untouched and the patient can have a short haircut without showing any signs of obvious scarring. Then the hairs grafts will be harvested prior to their insertion into the scalp.

Your hair restoration surgeon will manually transplant each graft into the treatment area to achieve a head full of hair with natural-looking results.

All testimonials are provided voluntarily by our patients and clients and all photos and videos have been consented to and have not been altered in any way.

How is the recovery from the FUE hair transplant procedure?

The downtime and recovery period associated with the FUE hair transplant procedure is relatively quick and you are able to go home after the treatment. The healing takes between 5-7 days. We recommend taking one full week off work to recover; however, there are many patients who are able to return to work within a few days from the procedure.

To ensure better recovery and avoid any possible complications, we highly recommend patients to follow all the after-care treatment which includes staying out of direct sunlight or rain within the first two weeks after the procedure.

You can learn more about the FUE hair transplant procedure and see before and after images when visiting our patient stories page on our website.

How do I know if I am suitable for the FUE procedure?

To discuss the suitability of the FUE hair transplant for each case we recommend attending an initial consultation with your hair transplant surgeon who will be able to assess your suitability for the procedure and recommend the best procedure for you.

In order to assess your suitability your hair restoration surgeon should be looking at the following:

  1. Age: Even though there is not a legal age limit when it comes to undergoing a hair transplant procedure, the age can play an important role when it comes to achieving the best results. Being the best age over 27 years of age as younger patients run the risk to further loss hair after their initial procedure to treat other areas that weren’t a concern before. Hence the importance of assessing the right time to undergo this procedure to avoid any future baldness and hair transplants.
  2. The donor area: The donor area is located usually at the back of the head, and is the area where your hairs will be transplanted from. In order for you to be eligible for the FUE hair transplant, it is imperative that your hair follicles in the donor area are healthy and there are enough of them. This is one of the most important stages and at The Private Clinic, we thoroughly asses the quality and quantity of the donor hair.
  3. The type of Hair Loss: The type of hair loss the patient is suffering from also affects their suitability for a hair transplant procedure. The most suitable candidates are the ones suffering from male or female pattern baldness which only affects certain areas of the scalp as opposed to the entire scalp. Patients who suffer from un-patterned alopecia cannot be suitable for a hair transplant. At The Private Clinic, we ensure you are suitable for the procedure and will let you know if you are not suitable for it to avoid disappointments and unrealistic results.
  4. General Health: Alike many other procedures being in good health is a requirement before undergoing a hair transplant procedure. If you have any health issues or condition you should let your surgeon know in order to assess your suitability and ensure your safety at all times.

Why choosing The Private Clinic of Harley Street for Hair Transplant

At The Private Clinic, we have over 10 years of experience of perfecting the FUE technique providing the best services, and care and count with top world-class hair transplant surgeons. Our hair restoration surgeons specialised in the FUE hair transplant procedure, many being pioneers in the development of new advancements in the FUE methodology.
