"I have now seen Mr Ross on three occasions. Mr Ross and his staff made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I feel confident that I am in safe hands as he understood my requirements and explained the procedures extremely clearly. I would happily recommend Mr Ross to any future patients.""Nothing from my experience."I went for: "Consultation for upper bleph and breast"

"I had a abdominoplasty and breast augmentation yesterday under Mr Ross. I feel a million times better than I expected to and I have been up and about since yesterday afternoon. Due to the skill of Mr Ross' anaesthetist I have not experienced any sickness, he sorted out my pain relief. I thought about having this procedure for a while now and I am so pleased I went ahead."

My mother has been diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillaton, shes been put on bisoprolol. Then after a week she had a stroke. Shes now on rivaroxaban 20mg. Shes still having palpitations and waiting to see a cardiologist. Is she in risk of having another stroke?

  • Atrial fibrillation is a major risk factor of stroke. The top heart chambers (atria) fibrillate and stagnation of blood predisposes to clotting; the blood clot can then get dislodged into circulation and finally wedged in one of the arteries in brain cutting off blood supply and causing a stroke.

    Rivaroxaban is one of anticoagulants ('blood thinning' drugs) which reduce the risk of excessive clotting and so the risk of stroke. So, the answer is yes - a previous stroke automatically places your mother in the high risk category - but she seems to be on a good treatment to reduce this risk as much as possible.

  • Blepharoplasty can be performed under local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic. Upper blepharoplasty and minimally invasive lower blepharoplasty can be performed under local. More aggressive lower blepharoplasty often is best under general anaesthetic. It is worth a consultation to go through the pros and cons of each method and allow you to make an informed decision as to which is the best method for you.
