Cosmetic Surgeon of the year finalist 2018

Arranging Surgery

Your consultation

The consultation is perhaps the most important aspect of cosmetic surgery. It is very important that you get an honest, informed opinion on whether or not cosmetic surgery can achieve your expectations. You as a patient will have certain expections of what you want to achieve from surgery and you should express your expectations as clearly as possible. I as a surgeon have to identify what I can and cannot achieve with surgery, and I shall try to explain this to you as clearly as possible. Ideally your expectations and my anticipated outcomes will be very similar.

There are several stages to the consultation:

Medical History

Initially I shall then take a full medical history of your previous health problems, current medication, known allergies, smoking and alcohol intake etc to ensure that it is safe to undertake surgery. This will include discussing exactly why you want surgery and what it is that you wish to achieve. My usual practice is to write to your medical GP to update your medical notes. If you would prefer that I did not write to your GP please let my secretary Diane Hagan know at the time of booking your consultation appointment.

Clinical examination

I shall then undertake a careful examination to identify what needs to be done surgically in order to achieve your goals.


I will then take a series of photographs. The purpose of this is to record the preoperative appearance and also I shall use these photographs for planning purposes.


We will then discuss the operation and the expected recovery period at some length. We will also discuss the possible complications and the risk of developing a complication. Finally I will give you a realistic assessment of the likely results of surgery.

Get in touch

I chose Mr Armstrong to carry out my facelift surgery after a lot of extensive and careful research. I was impressed with his academic credentials and his professional experience, noting that he had worked in some of the most prestigious medical institutions.

At my first consultation with Mr Armstrong I felt totally reassured that I would be in a safe pair of hands by the clarity with which he described all aspects of the facelift procedure I was requesting.  He explained everything to me in a clear and precise manner and in an unrushed and very thorough way. Together we agreed the best procedure for me, a 63 year old woman, would be a facelift plus an upper eyelid reduction and fat transfers to my cheeks, nasolabial lines and marionette lines.

I am now three weeks post-operation and the results have far exceeded my expectations.  I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I still look like me but a younger fresher version.  My droopy eyelids and hanging jowls have gone and my face and eyes look energised and revitalised.  My friends have been amazed at the transformation with one describing me as looking "sensational"!

Mr Armstrong's care before, during and after the procedure has been exemplary, and, along with his nursing staff,  I was thoroughly well looked after in a most kind, caring and professional manner.

I highly recommend Mr Armstrong to anybody considering surgery.  He is a highly skilled surgeon with a  safe and competent pair of hands.  My only regret is that I didn't do it five years earlier.
