I have had a face and browlift with Norman Waterhouse. I was left with bald patches from the browlift, had to have a hair transplant to cover them. My scars in front and behind my ears all stretched and are now very visible. I have distortion on my tragus and ear lobe because he put too much tension on my skin....I am still seeking corrective surgery but i don't have enough skin laxity for a revision at present. He also cut directly into my hairline behind my ears and i have stripes of hairloss which are very visible in my dark hair.
If you have to stay in the UK then Rajiv Grover is your best bet, definately worth a consult. In my opinion the US is superior and has more choice, the UK is a very small pool .
Thanks for your feedback. That is really worrying as Norman Waterhouse is featured in a recent Sunday Times magazine article on top 100 surgeons in UK - coincidentally with Rajiv Grover! I'm planning to see RG and maybe one other.

Like I said, the pool is small. I wouldn't take too much notice of those magazine articles, they use their marketing machines to get their names on those lists. I agree , it is worrying, the whole business of plastic surgery is worrying and stressful. My advice would be to take your time and research all you can on your chosen surgeon. Try to make contact with prior patients, ask the surgeon if he could introduce you to any of his prior patients. Many of them have marketing companies working for them so don't believe everything you read, especially in magazine and newspaper articles.
If you are able, I would consider travelling to the US. NYC has Baker, Aston and Rosenburg. Their in a different league to our UK surgeons....just my opinion of course.
