Everybody is different and as such individual results will vary. Results may vary significantly between patients undergoing the same procedure. No plastic surgery procedure will achieve the same result, even if the procedure is carried out by the same plastic surgeon. On this website and on the social media channels, we display before and after pictures. These pictures cannot be used as a guideline for what you can expect. Expectations about the plastic surgery procedures and other treatments like gastric sleeve and dental should be discussed and agreed with your doctor before carrying out the procedure. Your doctor will inform you what you can realistically expect at the time of consultation. There is no guaranteed result.

Risks, complications and permanents scars are something you need to understand and accept in order to have surgery. Healing is individual and previous clients healing cannot be used as an indication for how you will heal. You may heal slower or faster. Scars cannot be avoided and is a usual outcome of surgery. Some clients will develop thick keloid scars. Complications such as wound separation, infection, delayed healing and other complications are real complications that you need to consider before having any kind of surgery. No doctor or hospital can promise complication or risk-free surgery or treatments.
