The Patient Journey

The Patient Journey

The “Analysis Phase”

The analysis phase is a series of two or three pre-procedure consultations. The first, if you wish, is a complimentary remote video conversation with Jonathan so that you can “get onto the same page” as you lay out your thoughts about what you want to achieve, before you commit to coming to see us.

If you would like to receive a detailed written analysis, with a quote for treatment, Jonathan will meet you in the clinic for a face-to-face consultation. You are welcome to bring a friend or family member for support. The medical history and physical analysis in the privacy of the consulting room is an essential part of making the treatment plan. After this meeting you will receive a detailed plan and a written quote, together with a suite of information about our ‘twilight’ surgeries, relevant comments from prior patients, and some insights about the psychology and holistic care that is part of our commitment to you. The depth of experience within our team includes expert clinicians in the psychology of appearance change – and they are on hand for analysis and support both pre- and post-operatively.

As part of our holistic philosophy we will offer you a complimentary lifestyle medicine assessment – ‘Prepare and Repair’ – with advice for things you can effectively do to improve your pre-operative health and post-operative recovery.

If there are requirements for specialist scans, opinions from colleagues, or for blood tests and investigations, these will be arranged and the results reviewed by Jonathan and the team.

Before your procedure, and after you have read through the preparatory material at your leisure, Jonathan will invite you for a face-to-face or remote catch up… Jonathan recommends that you open a “procedure diary” on your phone, into which you can drop any questions that occur to you throughout your day. This conversation is to answer any questions you have, and to allow Jonathan to ask you about any reflections he has had to refine your care.

In truth, our door is always open, and Jonathan will be very happy to see you face-to-face or remotely if you have further questions about your requested procedure.

Procedures and Clinics

Our consulting suite is at 70 Harley Street and two locations in Essex. Day case procedures under “twilight” daycase conscious anaesthesia may be undertaken at our bespoke operating facilities in London, or Essex as required. All locations are have been specifically chosen for their high standards of private care, caring nursing, and state-of-the-art facilities.

By the time it comes to the procedure, each of my clients feels that they know me, and all feel confident, comfortable and ready to make lasting, positive change.

Comprehensive post-procedure care is an important part of your experience, and like the procedure itself is tailored uniquely to you. Jonathan will have provided you with a comprehensive set of guidelines for your use at home, and a number that you can call at any time for a member of the team to respond. Clients have a variety of requirements to suit their own travel and work commitments and management of post–procedure care will be tailored to this as much as possible. Information relating to post-procedure care will be given prior to your procedure in straightforward step-by-step language. Jonathan and his team will advise you again and provide support during your time in the hospital or clinic. Regardless of procedure, all clients are advised to have a friend or family member with them for the first few days at home, and all follow-up appointments will be made for you before your procedure date.

Patient Reflection with Jonathan

Patient Reflection with Jonathan

On my initial consultation Mr Britto listened to my concerns and explained very comprehensively exactly what I could have done. He explained that he wanted to create a good aesthetic balance in my face as my concern was that I didn’t want one half of my face looking obviously worked on and the other looking older because of the contrast. My major concern was not only the hooded eyes but also my lower lids as they were becoming bagged and shadowed and that I had a limited budget. He showed me examples of his work on his laptop which helped me to see what could be achieved. At no point did I feel pressured. That initial consultation was money well spent as Mr Britto wrote me a letter detailing everything that we had discussed and encouraging me to get in touch with any concerns or question that I may have had. Of course I had some concerns which I was able to discuss in detail via email. Mr Britto’s answers were always very clear, detailed and understandable.

The care was amazing. It was like being in a hotel bedroom with an ensuite. I was looked after very well by the nursing staff both before and after my operation. Mr Britto saw me before and after to make sure everything was going according to plan. I can honestly say that there was minimal pain and a little bruising, which you would expect. The swelling and bruising soon went and the affect was instant. My eyes and cheeks were amazing! What I noticed most was how open my eyes looked and how much better I could see. Mr Britto had taken before and after photos to highlight the difference.

My discharge after care was also excellent with many checks and consultations with Mr Britto and my face just improve more and more as time went by. The results are very natural looking and it has knocked years off of my face. In fact one young lady I know said that if she looked like me when she’s my age she would be over the moon! The whole experience has been very positive. I’m very grateful for the care and skill of a surgeon like Mr Britto.
