Treatment: Breast reconstruction

Surgeon: Mr.Vik Vijh

I can’t explain the feeling of delight as I sat by the swimming pool today, wearing a normal, off-the peg swimming costume, looking down at my cleavage; those around me unaware, that for the last 15 years I have been completely flat chested on my right side. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 32 and despite enduring 2 years of treatment, my best option was to have a mastectomy. So grateful to have survived and with a four-year-old daughter to think about, reconstruction was the last thing on my mind. However, approaching the age of 50 and after so many years of using a prosthesis I decided now was the right time for me to really move on and go down the reconstruction root. It was an extremely sad day when I was diagnosed with cancer many moons ago but equally a fantastic day when I was told that Mr Vik Vijh would be my surgeon. I was very apprehensive about the whole process until my first consultation with Mr Vijh. I never felt rushed at any point and he took the time to explain all my options; describing exactly what each procedure entailed, even showing me pictures and drawing diagrams. 2 years on and I am awaiting my third and final operation, which will complete my whole procedure. I don’t think Mr Vijh will ever really know how grateful I am and the difference it has made to my life. His expertise, his consideration and down to earth manner are second to none and my only regret is leaving it so long. Sincerest gratitude Yvonne Ticehurst

Treatment: Rhinoplasty surgery

Surgeon: Mr Vik Vijh

I have been extremely fortunate in meeting Mr Vijh of the Beauty Gurus. For over 14 years I had felt desperately unhappy about a rhinoplasty procedure which had been performed at another clinic. Mr Vijh was extremely sensitive about my situation and took the time to explain what needed to be done in order to reconstruct my nose. On the day of the surgery, Mr Vijh again spent time with me discussing the procedure, and put me completely at ease. He was always honest about what he felt could be realistically achieved, however Mr Vijh is clearly a perfectionist! The result of my nasal reconstruction has been life changing, and has far exceeded my expectations! My confidence and happiness has soared, and I intend to return to the Beauty Gurus in the near future. I can’t wait!

Treatment: ABDOMINOPLASTY & LIPOSUCTION

Surgeon: Mr Vik Vijh

“I had decided upon this course of action (to have a tummy-tuck and liposuction) following weight loss of 4 stones some 5 years previously. I felt that I had been ‘carrying around’ this legacy of my former-self and could do very little to rid myself of the remaining skin – I desperately wanted to be ‘normal’. I even felt my old shape was more normal than the one that I currently had and was extremely self-conscious. I swim half-a-mile most days and found the experience of changing with the other ladies was becoming more and more embarrassing. The whole experience was very professional, simple and surprisingly painless. I can honestly say I did not have any real pain following the operation. Certainly there was some discomfort and tenderness and the removal of the drainage tubes was not very pleasant – but that only lasted a few moments. Now, some 5 months later, I am still amazed at my own reflection – I always knew there was a ‘normal’ shape under there somewhere! My scar is a thin red line and doesn’t even warrant a second glance. Mr Vijh’s skill at carrying out this procedure to such a high standard has finished what I started almost six years ago and I have discovered the freedom of not feeling ashamed or embarrassed about my own body and for that – I cannot thank you enough.”

Treatment: RHINOPLASTY

Surgeon: Mr Vik Vijh

“For years I had lived with a nose that made me feel self-conscious and it is now amazing to be free of that worry. Mr Vijh was the utmost professional and I felt absolutely safe in his hands. The result is subtle and my nose now fits my face perfectly. I am absolutely over the moon with the results.”

Treatment: BREAST RECONSTRUCTION

Surgeon: Mr Vik Vijh

“I am so pleased with the results of my breast reconstruction. It has allowed me to put my breast cancer to the back of my mind as I am not reminded of it every day when I look down at my body. I feel whole and back to normal again. I wasn’t really sure whether I needed to go as far as nipple reconstruction – was I just being vain? But I am so glad that I did! It just finishes the whole procedure off and I am so happy and grateful to Mr Vijh.”

Treatment: BREAST IMPLANT REPLACEMENT

Surgeon: Mr Darren Lewis

“I had my removal of PIP implants and replacement by Mr Darren Lewis this month. After hearing about the PIP scandal in the news I was very worried and anxious and immediately contacted my original clinic who I found to be unhelpful and very unsympathetic. So I made the decision to go elsewhere and found Mr Darren Lewis of The Beauty Guru’s on a support forum. I am so glad I did. The results look amazing, even my partner who thought my PIPs looked fake and horrid now loves my new boobs, thinks they look very natural and feel fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend anyone who is considering surgery to use Mr Lewis!”

Treatment: BREAST IMPLANT REPLACEMENT

Surgeon: Mr Vik Vijh

“I booked a consultation with Mr Vik Vijh at The Beauty Guru’s as I was concerned about my PIP implants that I had had for about 10 years as (what felt to me as almost overnight) my right breast doubled in size, became heavy and uncomfortable but more than that, distressing. Mr Vijh saw me within a few days of me contacting The Beauty Guru’s and was very thorough in discussing my medical history and also with my examination. He explained the PIP situation and told me not worry as he could correct my problems. We discussed all of my options and I decided on explantation and replacement. Mr Vijh has done an excellent job of replacing my implants AND correcting the asymmetry that was present. His care and reassurance were second to none. My post-operative recovery has been amazing. I have minimal discomfort and bruising, and the scars are hidden better than they were before! If I or a friend need further surgery or advice I would not hesitate to contact Mr Vijh and his team at The Beauty Guru’s, who have always been there to support me.”

Treatment: BREAST IMPLANT REPLACEMENT

Surgeon: Mr Vik Vijh

“Having found out that I had PIP implants I decided to get them removed and replaced as soon as possible. I knew that this was not going to be as straight forward as my initial procedure had been so I did a lot of research into where best I should get this done. I visited a number of companies/consultants and they all seemed to be OK but I wanted more than OK! Then I contacted The Beauty Guru’s. As soon as I spoke to the team at The Beauty Guru’s I felt comfortable. They were interested in helping me – not just doing a sales pitch! I had my consultation with Mr Vik Vijh – he was lovely, took ages talking to me and explained everything very clearly. It was very obvious to me that he knows his stuff. When the big day came, I was so scared I nearly ran away. I thought I was going to faint or have a heart attack but Vik and the medical team were brilliant and told me everything was going to be fine to leave it to them – so I did… next thing I was awake, a bit sore but feeling good and very relieved to have new safe implants. I came home the following day expecting to be in a lot of pain but I only took two paracetamol on the first day then stopped all pain relief as I was fine. I am now 9 days post-op and am delighted with my results. The whole Beauty Guru’s team made me feel safe from start-to-end and I am so grateful for their support and skills. I would recommend them in a heartbeat!”
