The Royal Free Hospital in London is one of the most prestigious medical institutions in the United Kingdom. We are committed to providing the highest standards of care, looking after you before, during and after cosmetic surgery.

Our surgeons are some of the most experienced and skilled to be found in the world, having performed hundreds – even thousands – of procedures, using the very latest techniques in pre-operative planning and surgical procedures.

All our surgeons are fully accredited UK-based consultant plastic surgeons who are members of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons and/or the British Association of Plastic and Reconstructive Aesthetic Surgeons, the bodies that maintain standards of excellence in plastic surgery in the UK. We offer a full range of surgical procedures, from breast reduction and enlargement to facelifts, rhinoplasty and liposuction.


At the Royal Free, you are treated as an individual and given the best possible care, from your first consultation through to surgery and during aftercare. Continuing support and advice is always on hand. You will always meet your surgeon before your procedure, which is a great opportunity for you to discuss your expectations and ask questions. To ensure that surgery is right for you, we then arrange a pre-operative medical screening with one of our qualified nurses. Any further questions about what will happen on the day of surgery and what you can expect in terms of recovery and aftercare can then be answered.

On the day of the procedure

On the day of your procedure, your surgeon and anaesthetist will talk you through everything one more time. After most procedures, you will need to stay in overnight, although a few can be on a “day case” basis. Follow-up appointments are then scheduled to ensure that the surgery has been a success and to ensure that you are happy. Getting plenty of rest is an important part of the recovery process. It is essential that you give “the new you” sufficient recovery time.

After care

Most of our procedures are carried out on a day-case basis, meaning you’ll be able to go home shortly afterwards – but aftercare is still very important. We will ensure your needs and comfort are well taken care of during your time in hospital, and that you are fully equipped with all the advice and information you need when you go home.
