Mr Platt offers cosmetic surgery for individuals who feel the need to revise or change the appearance, structure or position of their features which may otherwise be considered as outside the broad range of "normal." The decision to undergo any cosmetic procedure should not be taken lightly and it is essential to have informed and realistic expectations of the results. Patients are always seen by Mr Platt for their initial consultation. If surgery is decided upon, then it is Mr Platt who carries out the surgery and the aftercare.
Mr Platt is supported by a dedicated team of professionals. Clinics and Operating are carried out at two long established local hospitals— the Hull and East Riding Spire Hospital (formerly BUPA) in Anlaby and St Hughs Hospital in Grimsby. His anaesthetists are all consultants and are members of the Royal College of Anaesthetists.Appointments can be arranged through Mr Platt´s private secretary Gale Gibson on 01482 841228.
