After training at City University and working in acute care, Romy’s passion for care and recovery led her to join Karidis Clinic as surgical nurse, working closely with Mr Alex Karidis. From decision to discharge, Romy offered our patients an experienced and thoroughly heartfelt bedside manner, understanding the importance of health and wellbeing during downtime post surgery.

Now she has decided to broaden her experience and join the aesthetics team and follow her passion for transforming patient confidence. Romy’s soothing, reassuring manner combined with her skill and expertise in performing injectable or laser skin rejuvenation treatments make her an invaluable addition to the the non-surgical team.

Two members of my family had already had cosmetic procedures with Mr Karidis before I even qualified as a nurse. When I started working at the hospital on the wards I was taking care of his patients post operatively. I knew how grateful my family were for the work he had done for them and I could see the same feeling in the patients I was caring for on the wards. It just felt like a very natural progression to then come and work directly for the clinic.
I think I’ve always been drawn to the glamorous, whilst still wanting to do something that really contributes. I feel aesthetics and cosmetics really combines the two.
It’s very difficult to choose one achievement in my career, as nursing makes you feel like every shift is an achievement! To work somewhere as prestigious as the Karidis Clinic is definitely a highlight; no matter where my career takes me, to have worked here will always be an impressive achievement.
I think that cosmetic surgery helps an enormous amount of people to feel happier and more confident. It doesn’t need to be the most invasive procedure, even the slightest change can make someone feel like they now look and feel the way they always wanted.
I’m currently using the Body Ballancer whenever I have some free time. It is incredibly relaxing and is really helping with my back and hip pains.
I think the best thing I have learnt with beauty and anti-ageing is patience and perseverance. Whether it’s a course of treatment and products, or recovery from a procedure, you need to give your body and skin time to adapt and heal.
I think my top three dinner guests would be; my sister (who is my best friend), my partner Toby (who I love) and Harry Styles (no explanation needed).

“Deciding to have surgery in these strange times isn’t an easy decision but I cannot fault the Karidis team for the organisation during these times, zoom consultation, face to face consultation & pre – op. consultation. Romy and Lou both on hand for post – op. face to face check ups, reassuring that healing was going well & when a problem did arise it was dealt with straight away, also answering questions I had via email /phone.”

“I had a lower facelift & upper & lower blepharoplasty with Mr Karidis & the whole experience has been amazing… Mr Karidis did a fabulous job. He really is a genius. His team are the best & nothing is too much trouble, they are always on hand to discuss, explain & reassure. I had the pleasure of dealing with both clinical nurses Romy & Lou who are so caring & understanding. I still contact Romy if i have any questions i need answering.”

“Surgical nurses Romy and Lou have been fantastic advising and looking after me in my recovery. I put my recovery progression down to all the advice and expertise I have been given from the Karidis team and the hospital so thank you.”

“After having met few different plastic surgeons I have opted to have a lower face lift and upper/lower blepharoplasty with Mr Karidis… The Karidis team is just amazing!!! I need to mention the lovely nurse Romy and the coordinator Stephen Banks, they looked after me and helped me facing the operation with confidence and peace of mind. I can’t recommend Mr. Karidis and his team highly enough.”

“Mr Karidis totally exceeded my expectations of what I thought was even possible for my Rhinoplasty four weeks ago. The results are completely incredible and I cannot believe how beautiful my nose is now! I would recommend Dr Karidis a thousand times to anyone who is also wanting cosmetic surgery. I cannot thank him and his nurse Romy and the team enough! I am so grateful and happy!”
