You may have caught the documentary that aired in February 2016, focusing on arguably the best clinic providing plastic surgery in Glasgow Dr Darren McKeown. The programme was called “Facelifts and Fillers” and provided an exclusive look inside Dr Darren’s busy clinic on West George Street. This man is known as the top makeover expert in the country and listed as “best for fillers” by Tatler Cosmetic Surgery Guide. The documentary was repeated again on BBC One in September 2017, reminded viewers of his remarkable talents. Dr Darren strongly believes in helping people to look and feel their best and has dedicated his life to studying aesthetic medicine and cosmetic surgery. Below is a breakdown of some of the main and popular services that Dr Darren provides.
Lip Fillers by Dr Darren
Attaining the perfect pout has been a desire of many people for decades thanks to the likes of Angelina Jolie gracing our screens. However when plastic surgery in Glasgow really started to take off in the 80s it was always very obvious and garish with the emphasis being on plastic. Fake lips resembled something of an allergic reaction or bee sting as opposed to accentuating the natural beauty. Today, Dr Darren has mastered the implementation of lip fillers with years of study and experience teaching him that only a little product is required and must be injected at precisely the right points of the lip and into the exact layer of tissue needed to produce the perfect pout. Practice really does make perfect and Dr Darren personally injected over 3,200 dermal fillers in 2016 alone. You are in safe hands when it comes to injectable substances at Dr McKeown’s clinic.
Another sought after aspect of Dr Darren’s services is the range of non-surgical treatments available. Most of the products and services he offers promote skin rejuvenation and anti-aging. Facelifts that appear to be pulling the patient’s skin from the back of their skull with a bulldog clip are a thing of the past. Today Dr Darren can apply a volume restorative treatment that will reduce the appearance of wrinkles and make the skin on the face appear firmer and lifted where before it was dropping. The clinician will perform a series of injections to significant areas of the face such as the temples, eyelids, cheeks, chin and jawline. In some cases a muscle relaxant can also be used. This procedure is one of the modern alternatives to traditional plastic surgery.
Similarly to the non-surgical face-lift, there are many treatments available at Dr Darren’s clinic which don’t appear to be related to plastic surgery in Glasgow at all. Today the industry is sometimes referred to as cosmetic surgery or as Dr Darren terms it: aesthetic medicine. This is a much more suitable name as many treatments are so advanced that invasive surgery is no longer required. It also allows all treatments to be categorised under the same umbrella, even the skin treatments. Dr Darren offers many solutions to skin problems such as laser skin resurfacing with Co2Re.
