I would like to share my experience of my face and neck lift with Dr De Silva. First and foremost I will tell you truthfully, that with all I now know for my experience, I would go through it all again tomorrow if I had too. It was so different from what you hear, and all the botched jobs you see. I picked Dr De Silva after much research, and the fact that he only specialises on the face, I made my appointment. From my first consultation till my 1yr check up, I can only but give him and his team 100% Dr De Silva has an extremely calming way with him. He puts you at your ease and explains EVERYTHING in minuet detail. He leaves nothing out, everything he said happened in that way. From having pre op’s till the day of surgery nurses Ellie and Josie were fantastic, so helpful and friendly. I was told by Dr De Silva that It would not be painful, just a bit uncomfortable, that was true. I had no pain at all at anytime from start till now, Swollen and bruised yes, the bruising had all gone in 2 weeks. Swelling took a little longer. I was also told it would be quite numb for some time. It was, but it didn’t bother me, and now I have very little numbness left. It can take up to 9 months I think. I didn’t want to look different, I didn’t want to change anything, all I wanted was to look rested and fresher, a better version of myself. I am soooo happy with my lovely tight neck and no more loose skin and hanging jowls. It has made the biggest difference to my confidence. No one has asked have I had work done, they just say “ you are looking great”. If you are thinking of a face lift or any facial work done, I can 100% guarantee you will not find a better surgeon… anywhere. My extreme gratitude to Dr De Silva, Dr Andre (anaesthetist). Nurse’s Ellie & Josie and to Sarah who sorted all the paperwork etc.

Best of the Best! Incredible experience all round and natural looking results. I had originally seen Dr Julian De Silva for a consultation back in 2017 and had followed his work for years, so I was familiar with his style of surgery and artistry. I had studied his work of the ‘Golden Ratio’ and even bought his book years ago. At my first consultation, Dr Julian and his team immediately made me feel at ease. His wonderful team - Sarah, Mags, Mackez, Adam and the lovely nurses Alice, Josie and Kelly were all very kind and welcoming. I instantly felt at home. It’s a lovely energy when you go into 23 Harley Street and everything, including the operating theatre is there. Dr Julian De Silva’s kind and calm nature made him stand out from the rest of top surgeons that I had seen over the years. I didn't feel rushed, and he listened and understood my concerns. He explained to me about hyper mobility, where the skin can stretch at a younger age and this made sense why I was seeing premature signs of ageing such as ptosis and jowls forming. I felt relieved that finally a surgeon understood how I was feeling and didn't immediately turn me away dismissing me because of my age, saying I was too young etc. I knew he was the surgeon for me. A strong gut feeling and I trusted him 100%. I knew of his natural looking results from his previous work with other patients. He is truly an artist and has very fine attention to detail in his work. - Just look at his analysis of Renee Zellweger video on YouTube and you’ll understand what I mean. It is just over 3 months now since I had the operation and I am delighted with the results! My jowls have completely gone and I have my v shape jawline back. Dr Julian told me that the skin had dropped 2.5 centimeters and that is how much he had to lift it up again, which is a lot for someone my age and testament to the hypermobility. I can now wear eyeshadow without it creasing and my eyebrows are back to where they were pre ptosis! My confidence has come back and I am feeling so much more positive about how I look. My experience with Dr Julian De Silva and his team was second to none - No other surgeon could have done a better job. What I like about Dr Julian De Silva is his humbleness and integrity. He is not only a surgeon but an artist - He will look at the symmetry of your face and treat it like a work of art ; this goes beyond just surgery, this is artistry. From my results, especially around my eyes I can see how intricate and finely done with attention to detail he has perfected everything which makes for such natural results. The whole experience from the first consultation right through to the 3 month mark with several visits in between has been so enjoyable for me. I loved the whole experience of my trips up to 23 Harley Street. He has a great team who make you feel at home and comfortable straight away, they are very accommodating and always on hand with any questions or concerns you may have. It’s a lovely energy there. I have had consultations with other top surgeons in London and met their teams over the years but none have been on this level. Julian and his team are a rare find. I’m so pleased and grateful I picked Dr Julian De Silva and his team - I want to go back and get more things done for the joy of the whole experience, which says a lot!

I recently had a chin implant by Julian. It’s something I had considered for years but had felt apprehensive about, not knowing where to go and whom to trust. It’s a serious surgery and it was a bit stressful at the start, knowing where to look to find someone I could trust. I started by googling about chin implants and came across a few people in London who do them. I did as much research as possible by looking at before and afters, reading Google reviews, reviews on other sites like Realself, and looking into doctors abroad, etc… The great thing about Julian is that he has a lot of YouTube videos and content on Instagram that show him and his personality, along with people's experiences. Specifically, there are a few video diaries on his YouTube channel of people who have had this surgery, with a day-by-day step of their recovery. This really helped me and gave me peace of mind. I decided to have a consultation with Julian. The consultation wasn’t free but was definitely worth it. I felt listened to and didn’t feel rushed. I had an hour-long chat where I basically asked him to tell me which elements of my face could be treated to improve my appearance. Julian gave me concise information and it made complete sense. I was quoted for a couple of surgeries that I could have which would make a bit of difference to help balance things but from our discussion it was obvious that the chin implant would make the most difference. I took a few months to think about it but I decided to go for the chin implant. The operation was performed under twilight anesthesia. I hadn’t had this before and was a bit apprehensive but honestly it was absolutely fine and actually quite relaxing. All I remember is going into the theater, surrounded by lovely friendly nurses, feeling a bit sleepy, and next thing I know I’ve woken up in the theater. It felt like time had passed, I wasn’t groggy and within 30 minutes I was on my feet and could leave. For the next week after the surgery I was on quite a few different pills and I did feel quite out of it. Definitely do not have anything planned for the week following surgery, you will want to be at home with a few Netflix series ready to watch as you will need to rest up and let your body heal. It was a bit strange to smile for a few weeks after the surgery and my chin area felt a bit tight at first but you start to forget it’s there after a while. The result is very natural and I feel that I look a lot better, nobody has asked me if I have had something done but people have mentioned that I’m looking good but they aren't quite sure why haha. This is exactly the result I was looking for. The surgery isn’t cheap, it was upwards of £10,000 but was it worth it? For me, 100% yes. I just wish I had got it sooner tbh. There are other surgeons who are cheaper, you could go abroad to Turkey to get surgery or find someone based outside of London but in my opinion if you want this kind of surgery there is no point in trying to find a cheap option with a risk that it’s not going to be exactly how you want it. With Julian you have peace of mind that you’re with one of the leading plastic surgeons in the country, he also uses a technique that uses two titanium screws which attach the implant to the skull so that it doesn’t move. A lot of other surgeons do not use this technique and from reading reviews a lot of these people have had to get revision surgery to get an implant as it has moved over time because it wasn’t attached like the way Julian does them. Honestly, If you want a chin implant and want the best in the business, this is the doctor you want.

I am a timid young man plagued by hereditary eye bags. Used all my options from the latest creams advertised to the newest hacks trending to no avail. I concluded that facial surgery is my only way forward as it was starting to affect my mental health. Discovering his accessible YouTube channel was invaluable to my research. Alongside his detailed website, this gave me the confidence to reach out to the clinic. I met Julian and his team back in February for my consultation and proceeded with my surgery in March. (2024) From the consultation with Julian I was immediately relieved from all my questions and worries about the procedure I was enquiring (lower blepharoplasty). Informed by his wealthy knowledge and articulate descriptions. His respectful manner helped alleviate any stress induced from my own research. I had my complete trust in him and he proved it to me with his vast portfolio of successful clients who've had the same procedure. In that instance I knew I had come to the right place and could set my mind at ease. The team are supportive with great communication. Professional and friendly. Nothing but respect and gratitude for them all. From my experience with Julian's practice I felt welcome, positive and hopeful. Also the twilight sedation that he recommends is excellent! You go into surgery and it’s like falling asleep, and once it’s over the nurse wakes you up and you’re alert and aware. Thank you so much! I can finally smile with my eyes again. Highly recommend Julian to anyone that is considering facial surgery.

Almost one year in ... I am still delighted. Surgery is not for the faint hearted. You need to be brave, and prepared for some bumpy times in recovery. But it's worth it. Julian de Silva is on another plane. Not only an exceptional (world class) technician, he is also an artist who doesn't paint by numbers. So easy for me to recommend ...


Chin Impants/Augementation

Chin Implant Surgery London

A chin implant when completed by an expert can give both facial balance and harmony and is a low-risk procedure that often looks great even days after the procedure. Chin deficiency is typically noticeable when looking at a person’s side profile, as the chin should align with the philtrum (junction between nose and upper lip).

How is a chin implant inserted?

Dr De Silva inserts chin implants on their own as a single procedure, or commonly in conjunction with another procedure, such as rhinoplasty, facelift or neck lift surgery to enhance the result.

  • Traditional Chin surgery involved making cuts into the jaw (mentoplasty) and resetting of the position of the jaw (orthognathic surgery). This involved substantial surgery with realignment of the jaw. There was a long recovery time, with a risk of crossbite and nerve injury. Many patients do not require this level of invasive procedure and by using a modern procedure can have a faster recovery with less issues or risks.
  • Natural Chin. Dr Julian De Silva Customises each Silicone Implant to fit each patient’s individual jawline. Dr De Silva has revised many chin implants that patients have felt resulted in a ‘squarer’ or ‘unatural’ jaw line. Key is customising the implant for both the patients natural jaw bone (e.g. correcting asymmetry) and patients requirements. In principle are more attractive feminine jaw lines tend to be more ‘V-shaped‘ and a male jaw lines more ‘Square-shaped‘, however for the best natural results every implant has to be customised to the individual. 
  • The chin implant can be inserted under a local anaesthesia commonly with sedation, by making a small incision under the chin in a natural, hidden crease. Often patients look really good and natural just 1-week after procedure.
  • Facial Balance. Chin implants provide a very safe way of avoiding mentoplasty while restoring natural proportions to the face. In a woman, a chin implant restores harmony and natural beauty. In a man, the chin is one of the features of sexual dimorphism and makes a male face more masculine and attractive.
  • Why have a Chin Implant? A chin implant, or chin augmentation, is a procedure that Dr De Silva performs every week for patients. A chin implant can be for just patients who have felt self-conscious about their recessed jaw line since teenage years. For some patients a chin implant can be used in conjunction with other procedures. Rhinoplasty (chin implant can by facial proportions make your nose look smaller. Facelift and Neck lift surgery, a chin implant can give you a more elegant and refined neck by adding definition and shape.  It is an option if you have a small chin or if the lower portion of the jawbone lies behind the lips. The name given to this appearance in medical jargon “microgenia” (micro means small, genia means chin).
  • Detail is Important. The surgery can be completed with a scarless procedure inside your mouth or an incision less than 12 millimeters in width. A larger scar is not necessary, Dr De Silva has completed revision chin implant surgery for many patients with much larger scars, however these are not required. Dr De Silva believes in going the extra mile and to stop implants moving providers two tiny 10mm or smaller titanium screws to ensure the implant does not move (Note. Most surgeons do not complete this, however if the implant moves there are then required with a further procedure.)
  • Revision Chin Implants. Dr De Silva treats many patients for revision chin implant surgery where they had previous surgery elsewhere and were unsatisfied with the results from their previous surgeon. There can be many reasons for this including, too much change, too square appearance, not adequate improvement, movement and visible scars.
  • Before & After Virtual Imageing. Dr De Silva takes multiple high-definition photos of your face in profile and uses the latest in Digital Animation to simulate the size of the chin implant. In most cases, he can provide a visual approximation of how your chin implant surgery will look.

    Chin Implant Technique And Procedure

    Who needs a chin implant?

    This figure on the left shows the normal position of the chin in relation to the lips. In a person with good facial proportions the lower lips is 1-2mm behind the upper lid and the chin is 1-2mm behind the lower lip. There are variations in facial harmony and balance based on genetics, gender and ethnicity.

    The figure on the left shows the position of a recessed chin which is positioned (>5mm) behind a vertical green line drawn through the lips. With chin augmentation the chin is moved forward and the relative distance from the lips to the chin is reduced. Dr De Silva uses reference points on the face to evaluate proportions, however the artistry of chin augmentation also includes taking in to account gender, ethnicity and chin shape into account with chin shaping.

    Are other procedures performed at the same time as chin implants?

    Chin implants are often used in conjunction with rhinoplasty to improve facial proportions and give a more balanced result. In addition, neck fat reshaping can be beneficial for some patients to improve the natural jaw line and create an attractive angle between the jaw and chin.

    In patients wither further signs of facial ageing, there may be laxity of the skin and soft tissues with the appearance of jowls, deep facial lines and neck skin folds. Patients with these signs of facial ageing would benefit from a face and neck lift in addition to the chin implant.

    Why have a chin implant?

    Common reasons why patients ask Dr De Silva for help

    • Self-conscious about side profile
    • Hiding chin e.g. avoiding photos
    • Filler is okay as a short-term solution, but because it is a soft gel it provides limited improvement; costly and inconvenient long-term
    • Consciously pushing jaw forward to hide chin
    • Men often grow beard resulting in an older appearance

    Dr De Silva recommends:

    • Natural shaping of implant to jawline (key importance for a natural look)
    • Avoid movement with fixing implant (Dr De Silva uses two 8mm titanium screws)
      Chin implant has major advantages in recovery over alternative invasive surgery (genioplasty, jaw surgery)
    • For younger patients with a fuller neck, shaping and contouring of the neck with customised fat reshaping and reduction, and Dr De Silva’s signature tightening stitches provides greater definition in the neck
    • With Dr De Silva’s sedation anaesthesia patients can go home less than 1-hour after the procedure
