Having done a lot of TV work himself, including several series of Last Chance Salon, Embarrassing bodies and 10 Years Younger, we asked Mr Vijh what he thought of this concept.

“It concerns me greatly” he explained. ” The decision to have plastic surgery is a very personal one and should always be taken by the patient in close discussion with the surgeon, not by a random group of people unrelated to the patient. We sometimes see patients in our clinics that we feel are being pressurised into surgery by partners. These people are not good candidates for surgery. Aside from the physical elements of surgery, which are a massive consideration, the psychological assessment of our patients is a huge part of our job. 

“Patients come to us for a variety of reasons, but suitability for surgery is absolutely critical to us. We are aware that some providers in the UK market tend to almost railroad patients into having surgery as it is a business but this does not put the patient’s interest at the top of the priority list.

“At The Beauty Gurus we can assure you, nothing is higher in our thoughts than the patient’s welfare, both physically and mentally. This is why our patients will always be seen by a fully qualified surgeon, not a coordinator. This is why we always give a two week cooling off period and dont rush people into surgery as a slot is free. We do not cut any corners.”

If you would like to arrange a consultation with one of our surgeons, you can do so here.
