In case you missed last issue, I’d like to introduce Cosmetic Surgeon Mr Gerard Lambe who you may have seen on BBC Breakfast as Spokesperson for BAAPS (The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons).
He’s also appeared on The Real Housewives of Cheshire, having a breast surgery consultation with doyenne Dawn Ward and her daughters Darby and Taylor Ward. He subsequently operated on Darby Ward and her grand reveal was aired on the show when she appeared at Dawn’s annual Crème De La Crème Ball for the Cauldwell Children’s Charity.
The episode also showcased our Crisalix 3D Virtual Reality Breast Surgery software (also known as #BoobGoggles) where you can see yourself (in virtual reality) with various breast implants of different sizes and shapes and in different clothes from bikinis to ball gowns!
This software really helps our patients choose the right breast implants for them as they can “see” their future breasts in Virtual Reality from all angles (including their cleavage).

What do you specialise in?
I specialise in breast surgery, including breast enlargements, breast reductions and breast uplifts. I also do Mummy Makeovers (a mix of a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast surgery) with the aim of giving a Mother her body back after the rigours of pregnancy, childbirth and breast feeding, if she so wishes. I also perform a host of other female surgeries on request.
What are the new trends in Cosmetic Surgery?
We are always busy with breast enlargement requests, but most recently we’ve had a lot of enquiries for Brazilian Butt Lifts which we believe are trends driven by pop stars like Nicki Minaj and reality TV stars such as Kim Kardashian and many Instagram Models.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian Butt Lift (or BBL) is where the bottom area is re-shaped. This gives it a more toned and rounded appearance. Many women also complain their bottom is flatter after children and this procedure enables the area to be reshaped to make it look rounder.
What is involved?
Women are delighted to hear that for this surgery you need a good amount of fat to start! I use a system where I remove fat from other areas of the body, such as the stomach and waist areas, and sculpt it around the top half of the bottom.
The result is that the waist and stomach areas become smaller and the bottom looks higher and rounder and replicates a more toned and youthful bottom! This will give you that highly sought after “hour glass” figure which is so aspired to.
What advice would you give to a potential patient?
Many ladies spend a lot of time being unhappy about a particular part of their body. If this sounds like you and you are thinking about surgery, I advise you to do your research thoroughly before coming to see me. You can then ask me any personal questions that are specific to you and bring a picture of what look you are trying to achieve.
Where are you based?
We are based at Spire Cheshire (in Warrington) and Spire Manchester (in Didsbury) hospitals but our patients come from Aberdeen to Brighton and internationally from Kuwait, Singapore and the States.
