Re: White patches under eyes

Dear Angela,
I would recommend discussing this with your GP in the first place. There are a number of reasons why this may happen including the presence of cholesterol under the skin. Clinical examination will guide a discussion around treatment options.
Best wishes

Re: Loose skin after breast cancer

Dear Sharon,
I would recommend you look into having a breast uplift, since this is a common concern among women with a history of breast issues. Your starting point is to discuss your concerns at the next follow up with the breast surgery team.

If this is the case an aloe vera based moisturiser applied regularly should help your sympt...

Re: Old Scar

Dear Sally, It sounds like the scar has an element of tethering, i.s it is stuck to the deeper layers under the skin. In general terms this may be amenable to scar physical therapy (delivered by a scar physiotherapist) or a procedure called subcision. This involves using needle under anaesthetic to ...

Re: Mole On Belly

Dear Jessica,
I would totally agree with Adil,
The mole needs to be examined by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to ascertain the best way ahead both in terms of complete removal and laboratory examination as well as leaving behind the best quality scar possible.
