The rise of the 'Tweakment'

26th January 2017

The rise of ‘Tweakments’

A #Tweakment is a word being used in the media to describe the various #Aesthetic Treatments available for patients when Plastic Surgery is not yet suitable.


If a patient is beginning to notice for example lines around the eyes they may seek advice as to whether a #Blepharoplasty or Face Lift may help. In some cases particularly when the patient is older this may be the only option but in some cases there are alternative treatments available (Tweakments).

As the skin ages it loosens and begins to sag and so surgical excision of the skin will offer the best result however in younger patients where the skin has not begun to sag yet, the use of #Anti-Wrinkle Treatments such as #Botox or Dermal #Fillers can offer a suitable alternative. Of course Aesthetic Treatments are often temporary but they can work well in slowing down the ageing process until #CosmeticSurgery is required.

Here at LASE Medical our services are unique. Our husband and wife team Mr Ahmed and Mrs Lisa Ali-Khan offer a comprehensive range of Aesthetic and Cosmetic Surgery procedures using a start to finish approach so we can look after our patients needs in a friendly yet still discreet environment.

I have had Botox before but treatment with Lisa was completely different. She was very professional and her injections didn't hurt.
