David Glasson specialises in

Facial cosmetic surgery (eyelids, face, neck); laser resurfacing of the facial skin; and  body contour surgery (abdominoplasty and liposuction).  
On my website there are animations that explain many of the procedures I do. Please view them to better understand the surgery.

  • Facial Surgery

    There are many facial operations for the eyelids, nose, ears, forehead and brow, cheeks, jawline and neck. Surgery for the nose and ears is usually to change a feature that has always been disliked. Treatment of the eyelids, cheeks, jawline and neck are more often for rejuvenation of the effects of ageing, and give a fresher appearance. Laser resurfacing is used to alleviate the effects of sun and age on skin texture. These techniques may be combined into one procedure, and careful planning is required to achieve your goals, and a natural result.

  • Body Contour Surgery

    Liposuction and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) are the main operations for contouring the body. Liposuction is most commonly used in the hips, waist, and abdomen, but is also useful in the arms and legs. Tummy tuck surgery removes rolls of skin and fat, and allows abdominal muscle repair if required. Sometimes the excision of skin and fat is extended into the back, especially for patients after massive weight loss (bodylift).

  • Breast Surgery

    Breast surgery includes reduction, augmentation with breast implants, lift, and reconstruction (for breast cancer patients). Gynaecomastia is breast enlargement in men, and treatment can be life changing.

  • Skin Lesions and Other Treatments

    Skin lesions may be benign or cancerous. Benign lesions include cysts, moles, lipomas etc., and can be removed with various techniques. Skin cancers require surgery. Armpit sweating can be socially disabling and surgery provides a permanent solution. Laser resurfacing treats the effects of sun and ageing, especially when these changes are advanced.
