Paul Chatrath works with a number of fully accredited anaesthetists both in Central London and Essex, including PEAP (Partners of Essex Anaesthetic Practice) and other colleagues who work as sole practitioners. All have extensive experience in the particular requirements of cosmetic patients undergoing surgery.

Non surgical cosmetics

Paul Chatrath works closely with specialists both in Central London and in Essex, who collectively have many years’ experience in non-surgical cosmetic practice, specializing in botox and fillers of the upper and lower face, periorbital regions, lips and mouth.

Psychology support

Both the General Medical Council and The Royal College of Surgeons of England recommend that all patients undergoing cosmetic nasal and facial surgery should have a psychological assessment prior to surgery. This is important to help manage the psychological stress that can accompany a decision to have cosmetic surgery, as well as any pre-existing or developing psychological conditions or factors that could influence the perceived success of the surgery and how you feel about yourself. Professor Chatrath works closely with a number of psychologists in Essex and London, all of whom are very used to assessing patients who are interested in undergoing rhinoplasty surgery. They offer both face to face and virtual appointments with good availability. Further details will be provided to you once the preoperative planning process has begun.
