Snoring Treatment on Embarrassing Bodies

Watch us on the Season 5 of Embarrassing Bodies (1st November 2013), where we were asked to help a snorer put his family’s sleepless nights to an end. Our Consultant ENT Surgeon, Mr Yves Kamami is the inventor of the LAUP laser treatment to help snorers breath and sleep better at night. He has helped thousands of patients, helping partners of snorers and even saving marriages.

Snoring is a huge problem in the UK. It’s not just a nuisance but can also affect the sleep quality and fatigue levels of both the snorer and those around them. Sleep quality is just as important as sleep quantity so if you are a snorer or suffer from sleeping next to one, please do not hesitate to get in touch for specialist help from one of our Consultant ENT Sugeons.

Varicose Vein removal on Embarrassing Bodies

April Nicklin suffered thread veins and varicose veins and was referred to Mr Constantinos Kyriakides at The Private Clinic for a series of Micro Sclerotherapy injections. This intricate technique clots off all the tiny thread veins which disappear. During the treatment Mr Kyriakides found an underlying issue in April’s left leg. He found that the main valve wasn’t functioning properly meaning that the blood was draining down the leg rather than flowing up which was the result of Aprils superficial thread veins. April underwent the EVLA treatment with Mr Kyriakides to close off the vein. The treatment was very successful and April thrilled with the result of her new legs.

Acne Scarring treatment on Embarrassing Bodies

In another episode Embarrassing Bodies tackled the issue of  Acne and Acne scarring.  The number of acne sufferers is astounding and often if not treated early can lead to pitted scarring. This was the case for Natalie Simonson. Natalie suffered acne from the age of 12 and as she got older, this worsened and spread to her back and bottom. Natalie had tried all types of medication and diet changes but nothing helped. Her social life suffered a lot as she felt deeply embarrassed and resorted to seek professional help. Dr Christian referred Natalie to our cosmetic dermatologist, Dr Puneet Gupta. Dr Gupta used Pixel laser to treat her acne and acne scarring. But because Natalie had left the problem so long she suffered deep pitted scarring which needed Skin Grafts. The Pixel laser shoots a controlled laser superficially to effectively heat the layers of the skin encouraging them to shed  to rejuvenate and produce new collagen. Local anaesthetic is used for treatment. After a number of treatments Natalie for the first time, couldn’t wait until summer arrived to show off her back. The impact it’s had on her confidence post treatment is amazing.

Breast Reduction on Embarrassing Bodies

Embarrassing Bodies approached Dr Gupta for his body sculpture technique using MicroLipo. Yasmin Disney had double J cup breasts and suffered physically, socially which played on her confidence. Yasmin did not want to go down the surgical route of a Breast Reduction and thought that there was no other option. Dr Christian knew where to go when it comes down to minimally-invasive and non-invasive procedure – The Private Clinic.

Micro Lipo is performed under local anaesthetic, is a walk-in walk-out procedure and leaves no scarring. The treatment involves diluted local anaesthesia being injected into the area to be treated, Breast in this instance, causing the targeted areas to become swollen and firm. The breast tissue and fat  is then removed using microcannulas with a diameter less than 3 millimeters.

Yasmin post procedure has shrunk down to a D-Cup and is overwhelmed with the result. Not only can Microcannula Liposuction reduce the breast by more than 50 percent in size, the breasts are also lifted to a significant degree. Dr Gupta prides himself in his innovative approach to body sculpting. He has had advanced training in Microcannular Liposuction using tumescent anaesthesia in the USA by the inventor of tumescent technique.

The Private Clinic is proud to be affiliated with Embarrassing Bodies and Dr Christian Jessen. While Embarrassing Bodies aims to raise health awareness and de-stigmatise ‘embarrassing illnesses’ – we strive to raise awareness of the treatment we have to offer to treat these illnesses.
