Dr David Sharp before and after photos 2017 highlights

This is a small selection of our before and after photos from 2017! Thanks to all the lovely patients who permitted us to share their images this year, to help educate others about plastic surgery and the outcomes that can be achieved. Our patients come in all shapes, sizes and ages - and from the young to the mature aged, we believe it’s important to provide insight into the ‘real’ faces of plastic surgery; everyday patients! Despite the fact that much of what we see on social media probably reflects otherwise, the average plastic surgery patient is not a size 8 model with perfect breasts, a blogger’s body or celebrity with deep pockets; they’re everyday people investing in their health, wellbeing - and aligning how they look on the outside, with how they feel on the inside. This video provides an insight into the spectrum of procedures Dr Sharp performs every week. Happy New Year to all of our amazing patients, and thank you for making us part of your journey in 2017!...

15 Things You Should Know Before Getting Lip Injections

If the pout that mother nature gave you is looking a little thin or terse these days, here’s some inside tips to consider before getting dermal lip fillers… 1. Not all fillers are created equal. Do your research and choose a reputable dermal filler product that’s high quality and comes with a long, well documented track record. When you’re placing a filler in your body that’s going to change your appearance - and be there for a long time - don’t cut corners for the sake of convenience or a few dollars! 2. It isn’t forever. Because hyaluronic acid is eventually metabolised by your body over time, it isn’t permanent. You can remove hyaluronic acid fillers if you don’t like your results, by having an eraser enzyme injected, which dissolves the filler. 3. Cheap might not leave you cheerful. Dermal filler injections are a medical treatment, but just like buying a bottle of milk or new mascara, people can now access dermal lip fillers in their local shopping centre. The medical training of those administering the dermal filler - along with the clinical standards upheld by the clinic - is of upmost importance. 4. Fillers last 10-12 months. It will depend upon how your body metabolises the filler. Some people notice a reduction within 6 months, while others feel revolumised for up to 18 months. Thinner people tend to metabolise the filler faster. 5. You will see the results immediately; although they might be slightly over-inflated to start! Your lips will be swollen at first, but you’ll see the effects of the fillers quickly. The swelling can take 1-3 days to go...
