7th June, 2021

We have been living with Covid-19 for well over a year now. The pandemic has impacted everyone in different ways as people have learnt to adapt the way they live their lives. Face masks, social distancing and Zoom meetings have all become the norm.

A consequence of working from home and having to conduct meetings over Zoom has been a renewed awareness of how we look. It’s hard to ignore puffy eyes and jowls when spending so much time looking at your own reflection.

This has directly led to an increase in enquiries relating to cosmetic surgery to address wrinkles, jowls, scars, skin moles, eye lids and eye bags as well as excess skin through weight loss.

The time and isolation from others has afforded people with the chance to reflect on their appearance and even the appearance of others. Perhaps noticing a birthmark or the skin of their child for the first time. Or maybe they have made the decision their family is complete and want their body back.

Now that life is returning to some form of normality (at least for now), people are empowered to make positive changes to their lives. Be it, getting fit, eating healthily or looking at cosmetic surgery to address problem areas. If it is the latter, there are both surgical and non surgical options available and consultant plastic surgeon, Chris Abela will be happy to discuss these in more detail.

Chris is experienced in body contouring and cosmetic surgery and runs a private practice with clinics in Marylebone, Chelsea and Wimbledon. In June 2021, Chris will be opening a new clinic at 84 Harley Street.

Chris’ ethos and the team’s overarching philosophies encompass:

  • a safe and evidence based approach to the medicine and surgery provided
  • holistic and honest consultations to enable patients with a better quality of life, long after they have been discharged
  • providing the right infrastructure and personnel to take care of a patient and fully support them for the duration of their journey

All this is done with discretion in mind. As we continue to come out of lockdown, Chris and his team are taking all possible precautions to protect patients and are proceeding with extreme caution and care.
