The information provided on and through this website is designed to be informational only and in no way replaces medical advice. Do not use this website as a substitute for medical advice. Please always seek consultation with a qualified medical practitioner.
We ask you to note that all results take time. Whilst some procedures will see results more quickly, many optimal results will not be seen for up to ten (10) weeks.
This time may vary considerably depending on each individual and on the procedure undertaken. Furthermore, results are conditional upon other factors, including how well a patient follows post-procedure instructions, their diet and their exercise regime. Diet and exercise play an important part in the well-being of a patient and in the maintenance of their new body shape. Results may also vary due to genetics and whether an individual has previously had surgery of any type.
If you would like any further information on any of our procedures, please contact the Illuminate Cosmetic Medicine offices.
