Affecting around 2% of the adult population, Psoriasis is a chronic condition characterised by red, flaky, crusty areas of skin, covered in silvery scales.
Psoriasis is most common on the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back, but it can appear anywhere on the body.
Psoriasis is normally intermittent in its nature, and sufferers will frequently experience flare ups during stressful times or fluctuations in hormones. While the exact causes of the condition are unknown, triggers can include a skin injury, throat infections and certain medications, and psoriasis frequently runs in families.
Psoriasis can never be ‘cured’ as such, but it can be fully controlled, improving symptoms and preventing flare ups and infections. Our range of treatments for the condition consist of a range of minimally-invasive methods including topical and full-body medications. Your treatment method will depend entirely on your needs, and your consultant dermatologist will guide you through your options to ensure the chosen method is right for you.

What to Expect
The Private Clinic has been treating patients for over 35 years with thousands of people placing their trust in us each year. We pride ourselves on being able to offer a personalised service. We have a team of friendly nurses and expert surgeons who understand the importance of this decision and will support you throughout your journey with us.
The size and shape of a woman’s bust can cause a great feeling of unhappiness and insecurity. In cases like these, a breast augmentation is a great way to provide both a safe and convenient solution to help restore confidence. There are many reasons why our patients decide to go ahead with breast augmentation but here at The Private Clinic we have a team of expert breast surgeons using the best techniques to help provide you with the results that you wish to achieve. All patients are handled with sensitivity and discretion. If you are over 18 years old, in good health and generally feeling fit and well then you will be suitable for a breast augmentation. However, in some cases, a breast augmentation may not be suitable for the results that you are expecting and in such cases an alternative or combined surgery method may be advised. The best way to ascertain your suitability for any type of surgery is to book a consultation to speak with your chosen surgeon. To book a consultation with our highly experienced surgeons click here.
The right implant for you will be decided on by one of our expert breast surgeons. Your chosen breast implant will take into consideration your natural breast size and your body shape and frame. It is not possible to give an idea of one type of breast implant as different implant sizes, shapes and profiles will not all look the same on every patient. For each implant there are usually up to 4 different profiles which range from low to extra high and these decide on how much of the implant projects away from the chest wall. A low profile will usually deliver more of a subtle or natural result but in certain cases the surgeon may advise that you go for a higher profile implant so that your breasts will be more in proportion to your body, therefore achieving a more natural result. Your surgeon will then discuss implant placement, usually for patients wanting a more natural implant result the implant will be placed below the muscle as this allows for more natural breast tissue to sit on top of the implant but in some cases it may be more appropriate to go an over the muscle option as that it what will suit your body the best. Taking care of your new breasts post-surgery will also have a big impact on the final result so it is very important to follow your surgeon’s aftercare advice to help you achieve the most natural result. We have an expert team of surgeons and nurses who will ensure that you receive the best advice both pre and post procedure to give you the best results.

Deciding where your breast implants are placed during breast augmentation surgery is decided by your surgeon and will be discussed in your consultation. Over the muscle may also be referred to as above the muscle or subglandular and it is when the breast implant is placed in front of the pectoralis minor and pectoralis major muscles that sit in your chest. If you have a good amount of breast tissue then this option would be suitable for you as it will be able to help conceal the shape of the implant giving a more natural result. Under the muscle is also referred to as behind the muscle or Dual Plane. Although called under the muscle, usually the implant is never placed completely under the muscle as this is a relatively old fashioned breast augmentation technique. Instead the implant is placed under the pectoralis major muscle in the upper breast but above the serratus anterior muscle in the lower breast. Under the muscle is more commonly referred to as being dual plane and is normally the most favoured of techniques. This option is best for patients who have little natural breast tissue as this method reduces the likelihood of your breast implants showing and gives a more natural looking result. Our expert breast surgeons are experienced in recommending the best breast augmentation technique to help suit you and your desired results. To book a consultation click here.
