"PAS was formed in Harley Street, London in 1998 to establish a unique aesthetic/cosmetic surgery advice service with a human face and voice.
PAS offers you advice from a selected team of highly experienced experts whose wealth of knowledge is here to help you "Look Good and Feel Great".
You can talk to us on our Freephone number 0800 033 6024 or in person by appointment, rather than just exchanging emails, going into chat rooms - or perhaps having conversations with a distant call-centre, staffed by sales teams, who may have no hands on medical experience or knowledge about aesthetic / cosmetic surgery. Many companies and websites are actually sales driven and eager to sign you into committing to proceed to having surgery before having had a face to face consultation with a fully qualified GMC registered Consultant, who will assess your overall health and explore your personal expectations of your chosen enhancement.
PAS will ensure you receive accurate information on all aspects of your selected procedure, enabling you to be fully informed before proceeding to the next step of selecting a Consultant or Specialist Surgeon."
