What does the procedure
journey look like?

To begin your journey at Tailored Plastic Surgery, you will typically have an initial consultation to discuss your goals and see how we can help you. After a second consultation and a cooling-off period of one week, if you wish to proceed, we will schedule the surgery on a date that suits you. We will discuss the steps you need to take in the lead-up to your surgery, and also on the day of your procedure.

There may be some discomfort immediately following the procedure, and some do experience feelings of tension in the treated areas. We advise against strenuous physical activity and exercise within the first 24 hours.


The effects of the treatment do take up to 14 days following the treatment to have their full effect. Following that, the effects last for up to four months.
