We are pleased to announce that Mr Awf Quaba has been listed in the Best for Facelift Category for the third year running in Tatler Magazine’s Cosmetic Surgery Guide 2018.
Iraqi-born Quaba is refreshingly upfront. ‘There are barriers to surgery. These include the fear of scars, general anaesthesia and the stigma that having a facelift brings.’ (He should know – Scotland’s finest facelift surgeon has been scrubbing up for three decades.) Most patients have been contemplating surgery for two to three years before they book an initial consultation – ‘It’s interesting how much patients learn about themselves in those 45 minutes.’ And while a small minority will never follow through (‘I suggest a mild chemical peel, or a small amount of filler to freshen them up instead’), most do. This means four to six hours on the table, in an operation that might also excise skin from hooded lids, strengthen a weak chin with an implant or remove fat from the neck via liposuction. He performs between 50 to 70 facelifts per year. ‘But the numbers are not the important thing; the important thing is that you do your best for the patient.’
