Why I started
I’ve always had good lips, but as I’ve gotten older my lips are not as full and I’d noticed that the definition had disappeared and small lines had started to develop around the edges. My lipstick just didn’t look the same!
After my consultation with APT, they reassured me that the procedure was simple, that my concerns about the size could be controlled (by the amount I desired) and the pictures they showed me of their own work from the past were fantastic. I said ‘just do it’
Following my consultation all my reservations had disappeared and I was ready to proceed. The nurse first took photographs of my lips from the side and front. These appeared on a computer screen immediately in front of me- long gone were those lips I’d been so proud of.
The nurse then asked if I would like just a topical anaesthetic (numbing cream) or a dental injection, which he assured me would allow me to feel nothing. I opted for the dental injection which really did feel strange as both my upper and lower lips felt completely numb- just like going to the dentist.
The actual lip procedure only took about 5 minutes, was completely painless and believe it or not, I actually watched as the volume and definition was restored before my eyes. The product I’d had injected was Restylane Lipp.
Before and After
After the procedure I could tell my lips were swollen but they were definately fuller. The numbness was the most inconvienient thing and it only lasted about 2 hours. The swelling lasted for about 2 days and I had a small bruise on my upper lip, but I had understood this to be normal. Now I am thrilled with the results. The shape and size is perfect!
The feedback I have received
I feel no one knows and everyone keeps telling me how well I look. The little secret of mine has certainly put the spring back into my step. As I walk in a room head up with a great smile and that inner confidence and feel good factor that APT has provided me with.
The APT Says
The lips are an art to fill, form and define. Every individual is different and full consultation is required. Our aim is simply not just to fill lips but to produce a natural, shaped, propertionate lip that harmonises with the rest of the face. A true master will do more than simply make the lips look fuller; a master will make the lips look better.

What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is an operation designed to re-shape the nose. It is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in both men and women with patients reporting increased self confidence as a result of improvement in their appearance. The most common request is to reduce the size and shape of a large nose or tip, but occasionally an increase in the height of the profile is also requested.
In most instances the incisions are within the nostrils leaving no visible scars on the outside. A detailed consultation and examination are essential before a precise surgical plan can be made.
Length of Rhinoplasty treatments
An hour to an hour and a half
Number of treatments required for Rhinoplasty
One or two
Duration of results for Rhinoplasty

Why I started
I can really say my teeth had always been an issue for me, but I always thought that it was a bit like plastic surgery, in that only the famous and the rich people had it done. For some reason this came up in conversation with a friend and I said that I’d learnt to live with all the other ‘problem’ areas about myself, but my teeth were a constant issue for me and if anything, they would be the only thing that I would change.
I’ve always hated having my picture taken in case I was caught smiling with my mouth open and my teeth on display.
A little while ago my 3 year old nephew asked why I was sad in a photo, when everyone else was happy. I wasn’t sad; I just didn’t want anyone to see my teeth.
I have to admit I did feel nervous the first time, but that’s normal, especially when I wasn’t in any pain. They took photographs, models and a 3-D simulation of my smile. The staff, ’Tracey’ and the team were so confident and showed me some before and after photos of past cases which were amazing.
I must admit I didn’t want to have my front tooth extracted, but on the x-rays, it showed that the bone had been eaten away due to my neglect.
I began with a course of dental hygiene treatments and tooth whitening and maintenance program and the results where fabulous.
My front tooth had disappeared before I could notice and a temporary bridge, a plastic set of teeth were placed, but now they look far better than they ever did before. Everyone in the office couldn’t believe the difference!
All in all the treatment took about 10 weeks, 10 visits and I have to be honest, at the end I had a smile that I would never have imagined. I now really miss my weekly visit to the dentist.
The smile, the difference, the way it has changed my life. I’ve always liked smiling, but was self-conscious about doing so. Now I can’t stop! I just want to smile all the time, its brilliant.
Before and After
I’d definately encourage anyone who is thinking about it, just do it now, I waited far too long.
Ceramic Crown and Bridge work can look so natural, that only one should know. It should be undetectable. The favourite part of our job is when a patient says ‘I didn’t know this was possible’ says Dr Tracey Bell. ‘Hearing this response, is better than ‘thank you’, because it shows how APT improved their lives and helped them reach a goal that they had set themselves’.
The most important mission is to help patients obtain beautiful teeth and gums, so that they love their smiles!

Why I started
I had always looked after my teeth, but always had continual problems. My teeth were crowned, ill fitting and my smile was crooked. I had noticed that I didn’t smile as widely as the line between my crowns and my natural teeth had become very dark and stained, and whatever whitening toothpaste I used, it just wouldn’t disappear.
I heard good things about APT and booked a consultation, something I feel is one of the best decisions of my life.
Initially following my consultation, I couldn’t believe the photographs, my smile was so crooked and yes APT told me that could correct that and improve my smile. Initially, I had ‘SmileScription’. This involved having 1 hour tooth whitening in order to whiten my lower teeth, followed by the removal of my ill-fitting crowns, in preparation of the new Procera Crowns. The procedure was relatively painless, but the smell as they lengthened my teeth by removing the gum, I admit it didn’t smell nice, but there was no pain.
The effect was immediate; my new smile had created me a youthful, bright smile and was less crooked. This has boosted my confidence so much and has relieved my original inhibitions that my original crowns created.
Many people have commented on my new smile, all I can say is that I am ecstatic about the results and I should never have waited so long. A newer me, through a newer smile!
l’d definitely enourage anyone who is thinking about it, just to do it now, I waited far too long.
