“I am thrilled with my lower face lift and buccal fat removal with Mr Waterhouse, the results look natural and the whole experience has been a very positive and rewarding one. Over the last 10 years I had the occasional treatment with hyaluronic filler to add volume around the cheek area and try and lift the face and was happy that it was keeping age at bay. However, my aging accelerated when I hit my early 50’s and I noticed my jawline was becoming loose and jowly. I booked a consultation to have some cheek filler with Mr Waterhouse, but he explained more filler would just make my face look rounder and wouldn’t do anything to lift the face in particular the jowls. I’ve been a patient of Mr Waterhouse’s for 10 years and have only ever known him to err on the side of caution. He has a very measured and careful approach and has never encouraged a surgical solution over a more non-invasive one, if it would produce the desired result. So when he explained that a mini lower facelift would restore youth and balance back to my face I didn’t hesitate as I could see my jowls were really aging me. He also explained that I had some herniated buccal fat in my cheeks which when removed would give a much better facelift result. I had my surgery two months later and I am thrilled with the results. The operation took three hours and I experienced minimal bruising and swelling. I experienced some pain around my ears at night where the incisions were made, and my cheeks felt quite numb. My face and neck felt quite tight, but after about 2 weeks the tightness began to ease. The overall experience was much better than I’d imagined, I thought I would look very bruised and beaten-up post-surgery, but it was quite the opposite. I am now 10 weeks post-surgery, and my face looks great, at least 10 years younger and most importantly natural and not in any way “done”. I no longer have a square heavy jawline and the natural oval face of my youth has been restored and my cheekbones look amazing. My skin is prone to scarring but I’m delighted that Mr Waterhouse was so meticulous with the stitches and placed the incisions carefully in the ear folds so that the scars are now virtually invisible and easily covered up with a tiny amount of makeup. I didn’t tell any family or friends (apart from my partner who’s also thrilled) about my surgery and have only had positive comments like “you look great”, “have you lost weight?” I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mr Waterhouse, he and his team are the epitome of excellence, if you want a beautiful natural and balanced result, then he is the right surgeon.“

    I had been thinking about having a lower face lift/jaw lift for a while now - seeing my saggy jawline on Zoom after Zoom in lockdown really depressed me. It was one part of me that was very ageing. I don’t mind ageing but my saggy jaw was making look completely knackered. I researched the procedure and also the right surgeon for quite a while. I find some surgeons rude and arrogant (my brother in law is one!). Not so Mr Waterhouse. From the moment I met him (and I went back two more times to be absolutely sure - I did not rush in), Mr Waterhouse was kind, understanding, charming and filled me with confidence and hope. He managed my expectations and made me realise that a lower face lift could be a good option for me. Wow! Had I known sooner how INCREDIBLE the results would be, I would have booked in on the spot. I cannot begin to explain how superb the results are. My beloved husband laughs that he is now married to a younger model. It’s just so clever what Mr Waterhouse has achieved. I just look like a younger, fresher version of me with the lovely sharp jawline that I used to have. The saggy jowls have gone and the scars are completely concealed. The few friends who know my secret are blown away and want Mr Waterhouse’s number, the ones who don’t keep telling me how ‘fresh and rested’ I look. If I could give Mr Waterhouse and his team a million stars it wouldn’t be enough. Karen is a total darling and the staff at the hospital were the kindest, sweetest team. I was looked after so well and would have happily stayed a few more nights! Honestly the entire experience for me has been just amazing. I’m blown away. I literally can’t stop smiling! Thank you Mr Waterhouse and team - thank you for everything x

    I don’t usually leave reviews, however i feel it is important and helpful when making a big decisions as to what surgeon you should use. I would definitely recommend Mr Waterhouse, from my first consultation to the operation date he ensured everything ran smoothly. Mr Waterhouse asked me what i wanted to change and took everything i said into consideration whilst adding his own expertise. I couldn’t recommend a better surgeon and i am over satisfied with the end results!

    If you’re thinking of having a face lift (and are possibly petrified like I was) consider Mr Norman Waterhouse. He is an amazing gifted surgeon, professional, warm and caring. I knew from the first informative consultation that I was going to be in safe hands. I couldn’t be happier with the results. From the start of my journey to my aftercare, Mr Waterhouse, and his team have been simply wonderful! I highly recommend Mr Norman Waterhouse. Thank you

    This surgeon has a very well organised practice, with a very efficient and empathetic personal assistance, so this means that the admin runs very smoothly and is very clean from the beginning. Mr Waterhouse is very clear about his procedures and you are encouraged to come ad discuss things beforehand. After your operation, there is always access to help and advice on the phone, which is reassuring.

    I can not thank enough Mr. Norman Waterhouse, his team and staff for the professional service that they have shown me from the start. Last week I had an exchange of old breast implants, a mastopexy and fat transfer and the end result was amazing, perky breast that were far better than my expectations. I consider that I have been "surgically sculptured" if a term exists. I have put my trust in Norman Waterhouse and I have now decided to do a few facial tweeks with him, something that I have always been cautious of and avoided. He will give you an honest opinion of what you need and what you do not need for any procedure. He does subtle and not an exaggerated look. I have already recommended him to two of my best friends who are looking forward to their consultation with him. I highly highly recommend Norman Waterhouse, he certainly is the best.
