Dr Phil Scarlett
Breast and Tummy Tuck Surgeon
Dr. Phil Scarlett has over 30 years of experience in abdominal surgery and has a particular interest in cosmetic breast surgery.
Throughout his career, he has treated patients with breast cancer (where sometimes extensive surgery is required). Through which he has developed a in-depth understanding on the aesthetic aspects of breast surgery. In addition to breast implant surgery, he also performs breast reduction surgery for cosmetic or medical reasons.
In deciding to have breast implant surgery, patients are given full information about the options for their surgery, including advice with regard to the type, shape and size of breast implants used and the appropriate positioning of implants.
Particularly when it comes to the placement of implants, older style implants have been found to be associated with a range of potential complications and the risk of deterioration of cosmetic results with time. Dr Scarlett has spent considerable time in the removal and replacement of breast implants where such problems have occurred.
Dr Scarlett also performs cosmetic and functional abdominal surgery, focusing on the aesthetic aspects of the abdomen. He performs both full and mini abdominoplasty procedures, along with liposuction in patients with excessive abdominal tissue that may be associated with medical conditions or aesthetic deterioration such as following pregnancy.
