The Cost of Cosmetic Surgery in the UK

We are often asked, how much does a breast enlargement cost? And what about the cost of eyelift Surgery or a tummy tuck?

If you are currently researching plastic surgery procedures, you may have noticed that pricing information is often missing from most Plastic Surgeon’s websites.

The reason for this is there is a tremendous amount of variability in every patient we see. To explain, we all have a different body shape, skin tone or skin texture. We may have tighter or looser skin, we may have bigger muscles, a larger or smaller frame, less fat in one area and more fat in another area (which gives women their curvy shapes).  We are all different ages and our bodies may look younger or older depending on our lifestyles or through genetics which are parents have passed on to us.

Added to this, we all have our own individual aims and goals in life and aspire to different body and face shapes and these are all unique to you. These body goals are also affected by trends in what is perceived as beautiful at the time eg the ideal shape! Please be assured that no matter how many variables there are, Mr Lambe will work with you to discuss what you would like to achieve.

Your initial consultation is very important, with lots of discussion taking place as well as you being able to show the particular problem you have now and how you would like it to be improved. This takes time and shouldn’t be rushed.  If you do feel rushed or under pressure to make a decision when you have a cosmetic surgery consultation, then this should act as a warning that you are not being treated as an individual so please make your excuses and leave.

You are unique and if you would feel more comfortable to have a friend or family member with you at your consultation to listen and/or ask questions for you that may be otherwise forgotten, then please bring them with you. Mr Lambe specialises in women’s surgery and is known for his calm manner, empathy and sense of humour and has seen thousands of patients over the years, so please be confident that he will take the best care of YOU.

Our ultimate aim is to give you the results that YOU desire.

As you can understand, it’s very difficult to give an exact cost of your cosmetic surgery without seeing you in person, but at Reflect Clinic we think it’s probably beneficial to give you an idea of our prices for each particular operation.

It is by no means a definitive guide as newer procedures and new techniques are always evolving as we keep abreast (ahem) of state of the art medical technology for example our virtual reality “Boob Goggles” which patients report have really helped them make the right decision for them, when deciding on what type of breast implants, including shape, size and volume to achieve the look they desire.

Reflect Clinic’s Prices for Cosmetic Surgery

Below we have compiled a list of popular procedures we offer and the starting price per cosmetic surgery including the maximum cost you can expect.

What are you Paying for?

The cost of your procedure is composed of a variety of elements including:


  • Your Cosmetic Surgeon’s fees
  • Material costs (eg your breast implants)
  • Hospital fees (to use the hospital’s dedicated spaces and medical equipment)
  • Anaesthetist Costs (for your general anaesthetic if “going asleep” during your op)
  • Any medications or post-surgical bandages
  • Follow up appointments

Quality Not Cut Price Surgery

The decision to undergo cosmetic surgery is life changing. Whilst understandably the cost of surgery is an important factor to consider, it is also vital to consider that you will live with the results of your procedure for the rest of your life.


The biggest priority should always be the individual Cosmetic Surgeon that you choose, rather than the price.


Here you can see reviews and case studies based on previous cosmetic surgery performed by Gerard Lambe and Reflect Clinic.

Arranging Your Consultation

  • Do your research on the operation you would like, the pros and cons, the cost and the results (before and after photos)
  • Arrange a Consultation at a time and day to suit you
  • Allow yourself plenty of time to navigate, deal with traffic and park so you arrive in good time and can be calm at your meeting
  • Bring a friend or relative
  • Write and bring any questions you may have
  • Discuss the procedure in detail
  • Relay your goals and timeframes to achieve these goals to your Surgeon
  • Don’ts at your Consultation
  • Walk away if
  • you do not 100% trust your surgeon
  • You are put under any pressure to sign right away!
  • The UK is highly regulated for medical professionals including the General Medical Council, BAAPS and BAPRAS. Our advice is to stay in the UK for your operation where you can speak the language, meet the surgeon who will be operating in you and will have a support structure around you whilst you recover.
  • Read here to see why cut-price treatments abroad are recommended against:
  • It is important to select a cosmetic surgeon who uses quality equipment and products which have been tested as safe. See here the lightweight breast implants on offer from Reflect Clinic.
  • Be wary of cosmetic surgeons who offer pricing significantly lower than national averages, specifically if this is a ‘special offer’ or ‘seasonal promotion’. Cosmetic surgery is a serious business and should never be on sale.
  • Be certain that the quoted price you receive includes all expenses (ie there are no hidden fees)
