Whatever the procedure, we aim to help maintain optimum health in our patients. When we carry out operative treatments and procedures of any kind, we have to rely on the integrity of a patient’s physical condition; it is only when you are at your healthiest that we can achieve the best results for you; for example, when we approach operative rejuvenation of the face we first start with a non-operative skin health restoration programme.
Our bodies can be compared to a chain of independent linked organs and systems. Each link is important because it is collectively affected by the strength or weakness of all the other links in the chain. Like a chain, our overall health is only as good as the weakest link. Therefore, we treat the root cause first, not the symptoms.
System weakness may be inherited, or be influenced by disease, the environment, lifestyle factors or injury. Lifestyle and dietary choices, however, are the greatest causes of deterioration in the body’s natural balance, and may lead to premature body ageing and disease.
