Secret Surgery for Scotland’s Yummy Mummies
Scots firm Secret Surgery has enjoyed a prolific first year of business. The cosmetic surgery holiday specialists, who turned one in November, have recently expanded their services north of the border after a flurry of interest from Scottish women. Founded by Dumbarton businesswoman Angela Chouaib, Secret Surgery has gone from strength to strength over the past 12 months, attracting new clients and earning awards along the way.
The firm has already helped over 200 women experience surgery abroad in a state-of-the-art Polish Hospital. Many of Secret Surgery’s clients had yearned to have cosmetic procedures for some time, but were unable to, often due to the prohibitive cost. After being told that she must wait two years for plastic surgery on the NHS, Angela decided to launch Secret Surgery.
She spent Nine months researching surgery options in the UK and abroad, before discovering a Hospital in Poland she felt was suitable. Her initial concerns about foreign surgery, compounded by scant client reviews and the stigma associated with Eastern European treatment, were soon assuaged.
In April of 2010, she underwent a tummy tuck, and was so satisfied with the service she returned a month later for a breast reduction and uplift. One of Secret Surgery’s most popular packages is their mummy makeovers. Angela explains: “A typical mummy makeover package holiday costs £2,810 all inclusive for a tummy tuck, compared to £6,000 in the UK.” Other popular procedures with Secret Surgery include Vaser Liposuction thigh, arm and face lifts along with breast augmentation.
The company regularly hosts meetings and discussion groups across the country, designed to assist women – and men – who are interested in learning more about cosmetic procedures.
The firm have now expanded their operations in Scotland, with Nicola Connolly becoming the Scottish representative. Based in Dumbarton, Nicola’s role is to offer emotional, moral support as well as advise on all aspects of surgery abroad and to answer questions regarding Secret Surgery.
Angela Chouaib says: “I’m delighted to be welcoming Nicola, a fellow Scotswoman, into the Secret Surgery fold. Nicola and I are both mothers and understand the pressures of raising a family while still wanting to look and feel good.
Secret Surgery has helped me achieve that, and we look forward to helping many more women experience Harley Street standards without the price tag!”
