Our Team 2016-12-24T19:44:46+00:00

Over the years, we have sought to provide the best body sculpting solutions at NuBodySculpting, primarily driven by our team of experts, doctors and efficient caregivers. We provide the best possible solutions to patients who have been deemed fit and appropriate for cosmetic or aesthetic surgery procedures. Right from the beginning of our journey and to this day, our objective is to provide our patients an outcome that they desire. At the same time, we do not compromise on medical safety while fulfilling the requirements of our patients. Their health is of utmost importance to us.

Our team comprises leading cosmetic surgeons who have years of experience in the field of aesthetic surgery. All of our clinics nationwide boast a trained and qualified team of professionals who have extensive experience in the industry. We do recruit our team members from both public and private sectors and have strict parameters when it comes to recruitment. Drop in to any of our clinics and you will come across an incredibly efficient staff comprising doctors, surgeons, nurses, patient coordinators and aftercare specialists.

Our doctors are GMC registered professionals who have been around with us for quite some time now.  All of them hold specialist qualifications and have performed a number of surgeries with or without professional observation. They have grown in the fields as evident from the certificates that depict their sustained professional development.

In order to ensure that our team is always intent on delivering, we do take clinical feedback pertaining to the way they carry out the procedures. This way we make sure that our clients receive the best solutions and treatments possible.

We assign a patient coordinator to our each of our patients in order to track their progress throughout the period during which they visit us. The whole process starting from the first consultation till the time that they visit us during the post operative stages, we try to keep in touch with them so that they can find someone easily to answer their queries and concerns related to the procedure.  Our surgeons also advise patients to consider their decision of going for the procedure for some time and then agree to it. This may even stretch to a period of two weeks or so once they have been with us for the first consultation.  This gives patients the chance to carefully weigh the pros and cons of opting for such a procedure.
