Our expert surgeons offer a wide range of cosmetic procedures to enhance, improve and rejuvenate the face. There are many reasons you may have for seeking facial surgery, and when you come to Aurora for a consultation – which will always be with the surgeon carrying out your procedure – we take time to understand exactly what you are unhappy with and the results you are looking to achieve.

The natural ageing process affects us all. But for some, the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles and the loss of skin elasticity can cause real unhappiness. If you feel that you may benefit from facial rejuvenation, there are a variety of facelift options available to you - ranging from the subtle mini facelift, to the combined full face and neck lift.
All of our facelift procedures help to lift and tighten the skin, removing any excess and tightening the underlying muscles - making tired faces look naturally ‘fresher’ and more youthful.
Perhaps more than any other procedure, facelift surgery has the potential to make a real difference to the way you look and, most importantly, the way you feel.
The brow lift is a rejuvenating procedure that gently lifts and tightens the forehead and brow area to help reverse the effects of ageing. The eyebrows are elevated back to their former position, horizontal lines and frown lines are reduced, and the eyes appear more open and less ‘heavy’.
We offer two kinds of brow lift at Aurora – coronal and endoscopic. If you feel that brow lift may be of benefit to you, we can take you through the two options and discuss the best way forward at a consultation.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, involves carefully removing a subtle amount of excess skin, and can be used to improve the appearance of both the upper and lower eyelids. The procedure can correct droopiness in the upper eyelids, and eliminate puffiness and tighten up skin folds or ‘bags’ in the lower eyelids. The end result is eyes that look fresher, more awake and more youthful.
If required, eyelid surgery can be combined with the full or mini facelift to produce a more dramatic rejuvenating effect.
The nose, given its prominent position in the centre of the face, exerts a huge influence on a person’s overall appearance. This is why rhinoplasty, commonly known as the ‘nose job’, has always been one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgery procedures for people seeking to refine their looks.
Depending on what you are looking to achieve, rhinoplasty can be used for subtle refinement or complete reshaping of the nose. Surgery may be carried out on both the tip and bridge of the nose, and can be used to remove bumps, reduce the width and projection of the nasal bridge and make the nostrils smaller, to give just a few examples.
As well as altering the nose cosmetically, rhinoplasty can also be used for medical reasons, to help eradicate breathing difficulties and snoring.
Many people feel self-conscious about their ears ‘sticking out’, particularly if they wear a short hair style or like to tie their hair up. Ear pinning, also known as otoplasty or pinnaplasty, is a relatively simple procedure to correct the ears, making them sit flatter against the side of the head.
The surgery, which can be safely performed on both adults and children, involves removing a small piece of the cartilage from behind the ears. As a relatively minor procedure, it is usually performed under local anaesthetic as a day case. This means no overnight stay in hospital is required, so you will be free to go home on the day of your surgery.
As well as prominent ear correction, Aurora Clinics also offers surgery to repair the earlobes. Many people seek this procedure after removing ‘tribal’ ear piercings, and finding that the holes left behind do not completely heal. They may be seeking new employment, or simply have outgrown the look, and want to restore their ears to the way they were before.
Other people come to us seeking repair after standard earrings have been caught or pulled, and torn through the earlobes. And other simply come to us because they feel their earlobes are overly large and would like to reduce their size. Earlobe repair is a simple minor surgery procedure that our surgeons perform under local anaesthetic as a day case.
For lips that lack volume, either through genetics or the natural ageing process, lip implants offer a permanent way to enhance the lips and produce a plumper pout.
The Permalip implants we use at Aurora are made from soft contoured silicone, tapered at each end to mirror the natural shape of the lips. The implants come in different sizes and lengths, so you can be quite specific about the final result you want to achieve. The implants are also simple to remove or exchange if you ever decide you would like to try a different look.
Moles, lesions and cysts, while usually completely harmless, can bother some people if they are in a prominent position. Our skilled surgeons are able to remove all types of blemish using the latest techniques to minimize scarring.
Blemish removal is a simple procedure carried out under local anaesthetic, and usually only takes a few minutes. It may be carried out using short wave diathermy or curettage – your surgeon will decide on the best method for you after examining the area carefully.
While the treatment does leave a small scar, this fades with time to become much more discreet than the original blemish.
