Virtual Online Consultations


While life continues to be subject to change and restriction, we want our patients to enjoy the same personalised, professional and always approachable service that they experience in clinic. Which is why we’re excited to announce our new online aesthetic and skincare consultations. During your 20-minute consultation, you’ll have a virtual face-to-face appointment with either Suzi or Karolina, our highly experienced aesthetic nurses. Whether you want advice on the injectables we offer, what a non-surgical facelift with Ultherapy can achieve or the body contouring results you can expect with CoolSculpting, our friendly team are ready to listen and help.

At the Karidis Clinic, we are cosmetic surgery experts. Our skilled staff also offer a number of non-surgical treatments. Whatever you are interested in, we can guide you. The decision to undergo surgery requires expert advice, tailored to your individual situation. For this reason, all Karidis clients begin with an in-depth consultation with our founder, leading plastic and cosmetic surgeon Mr Karidis.

The consultation is the most essential part of the Karidis process. Mr Karidis is renowned for the honesty of his approach – all clients leave with an improved understanding of their surgery options. We recommend doing your own research first, but if you are considering putting yourself in the hands of any surgeon, nothing is more important than that first consultation.

What You Can Expect

Your initial consultation will involve working with Mr Karidis to look honestly at your goals. You can trust that Mr Karidis will never recommend surgery if he doesn’t think that it will benefit you or achieve your aims. As an accredited member of psychotherapist Norman Wright’s Pre and Post Procedure Support Program (PaPPS), every member of the Karidis team is trained to see the person behind the patient, and your experience at Karidis will be tailored to you. A Patient Coordinator will see you through every aspect of the cosmetic surgery process and your aftercare will be overseen by Mr Karidis.

In terms of outcome, Mr Karidis strives for a natural look. This might not be something typically associated with cosmetic surgery, but as he says: ‘The aim of surgery is to make people look better, not different. I believe in classic, natural, soft beauty.” With Karidis, you can be confident of natural, beautiful results.
