It was reported this week that plastic surgery in the UK is booming. According to figures from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (Baaps), the number of nose jobs, face lifts and breast implant operations all soared by more than 10% last year.
Talking about the news, Tim Mellor said: “In my practice (facial surgery only) the most common procedure is the eyelid surgery overall, followed by nose jobs (rhinoplasty) for men. However, patients must remember that they are not undergoing magic surgery and the risks, although relatively rare, still remain.

Cases of mouth cancer in younger people are on the rise
October 8, 2013 at 6:28 pm by Lucie Simic
Today there was a story in the Daily Mail highlighting the increasing issue of mouth cancer.
Nearly 8,000 people are diagnosed with mouth cancer every year and there has been a 50 per cent increase in cases between 1999 and 2007, according to the charity Mouth Cancer Foundation.
Most cases occur in people over 50, but it’s becoming more common in younger people, and doctors are looking into the reasons why. Recent studies show human papilloma virus number 16 (HPV-16) – the same one associated with cervical cancer – is linked to mouth cancer in much younger people with good oral health and no history of smoking or drinking alcohol.
Talking about the article, Mr Timothy Mellor said: “Mouth cancer is now presenting in young adults more frequently. When I started in the profession in the 1980s it was almost unheard of but I have even seen patients in their twenties with tongue cancer. HPV is probably an important factor. I think we should be looking at boys also receiving the vaccination at school along with girls.”

Obagi Professional-C Serums

Your skin deserves all the protection you can give it from daily exposure to the sun’s damaging rays and environmental conditions that cause premature aging. Visible signs of aging, those fine lines and wrinkles, are caused by tiny molecules known as ‘free radicals.’
Free radicals dramatically multiply with exposure to sun, air pollution and other environmental assaults, ravaging skin cells and breaking down collagen that gives skin its youthful resilience.
How It Works
Obagi Professional-C Serums use advanced scientific formulas developed and tested by leading Vitamin C experts. Obagi Professional-C Serums offer maximum daily antioxidant protection and greater penetration than other Vitamin C products. The greater the penetration, the greater the antioxidant benefit to your skin.
Vitamin C neutralises free radicals to prevent skin cell damage. Professional strength Vitamin C can give your skin the superior protection it needs to:
- Prevent premature signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles
- Protect against future damage
- Stimulate collagen production for firmer, more resilient skin
- Lighten and brighten skin for more even tone
Obagi Professional-C Serums provide up to 2 times greater penetration than its competitors. Obagi uses stabilised L-ascorbic acid – the only form of Vitamin C that can be effectively absorbed by the skin. Speak to Skincare Specialist Lin Mellor to choose from four concentrations to determine which one is right for your skin.
- 20% Highest concentration of L-ascorbic acid
