Cosmedicare launches in Edinburgh

A new state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery clinic has launched in Edinburgh.

Cosmedicare Cosmetic Surgery brings together some of the country’s leading Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, Consultant Anaesthetists and senior theatre teams to offer a wide range of cosmetic surgery procedures, using the latest technology, and carried out in a luxurious and private state of the art day case hospital complete with onsite theatre, imaging and full medical facilities.

Set up by Gill Baird MBA, a Glasgow-based entrepreneur with more than 10 years’ experience in the aesthetic and cosmetic surgery industry, Cosmedicare brings together more than 90 years’ combined experience within its consultant level team.

Technology is at the forefront of Cosmedicare’s approach and patient experience and the clinic offers the innovative Crisalix 3D patient simulation technology – anatomically accurate simulations of each procedure, allowing patients to visualise post-surgery results and feel fully confident in the decision making process. Cosmedicare are the first clinic in Scotland to introduce the Crisalix technology which forms part of every consultation.

With the annual growth in the number of cosmetic procedures in the UK increasing year on year, Cosmedicare offers a range of sought-after procedures carried out by acclaimed Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons Daniel Widdowson, Stuart Hamilton and William Anderson and Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon Jonathon Ross.

Procedures include breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, gynecomastia (male breast surgery), body contouring (lipo sculpture), face and neck lift, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, brow lift and ear shaping. Each treatment is carried out under a general anaesthetic, administered by a Consultant Anaesthetist, as day surgery. Some procedures are however available under local anaesthetic, including minor surgical procedures.

Cosmedicare founder Gill Baird commented on the clinic’s approach: “I wanted to change the face of cosmetic surgery and Cosmedicare was born out of my firm belief that a clinic must focus on the patient journey from start to finish, informing, educating and guiding each person through the entire surgical process.

“When it comes to cosmetic surgery, I also firmly believe in ethics over aesthetics and our team will only offer the most appropriate surgical procedure with the best results tailored to each individual’s unique needs. Initial consultations with one of our consultant cosmetic surgeons, carried out in a hospital, are free of charge too.”
