THERE’S NO MISTAKING THE SENSE of assuredness when you know a surgeon is truly listening to you. Dr Veerle Rotsaert’s patients know that feeling very well indeed. One thing that sets her apart is her exceptional knowledge and passion for patient care. Dr Rotsaert always adheres to a patient-first approach, so that every patient can look and feel like a more optimised version of themself.
‘The patient is at the centre of everything I do,’ she says. ‘My aim is to achieve natural results through an amalgamation of technical excellence and a deep understanding of the needs of everybody who walks into the clinic.’ Dr V, as she is fondly known, established her successful career as a plastic surgeon in Belgium before becoming the co-founder of top London multidisciplinary clinic, Tempus Belgravia. Increasingly noted for her sophisticated techniques and absolute perfectionism (resulting in the universally desired ‘no fake’ look), she is quickly becoming one of London’s most sought-after female surgeons in her own right. She specialises in a wide range of aesthetic treatments, from minimally invasive skin and facial enhancement to body ‘tweakments’, and female focused surgeries like breast surgeries, labiaplasties and blepharoplasties. She is also renowned for her signature suturing technique designed around skin type and scar history and prides herself in delivering a five-star aftercare, having hand-picked an amazing team of patient coordinators and a brilliant clinical nurse.
Labiaplasty aims to improve the appearance and function of a woman’s labia minor and/or majora, thereby improving quality of life. Although there is no ‘normal’ appearance for labia, some patients experience significant discomfort and Dr V’s work can help to counteract this.
Her expertise in breast surgery is wide-ranging and includes augmentation, reduction, lift, change of implants and last but not least a removal of implants, known as explant. Dr V’s extensive training included a visiting fellowship with one of the founding fathers of modern breast implant and explant surgery, Professor Anand Deva, in Sydney. On the topic of explant surgery, times change and people along with them; patients may rethink previously made decisions, or simply decide they have reached a point in their lives where they feel they don’t need implants anymore.
Those experiencing a lack of volume in the breasts – genetically or perhaps after childbirth, excessive weight loss, or simply due to the natural ageing process – might consider augmentation. Breast augmentation remains Dr. Rotsaert’s most popular surgery and specialisation and she loves talking patients through the different implant options, but her go-to and personal favourites are Motiva Joy implants. She is also one of the only UK surgeons to offer the revolutionary new JOY by Motiva programme; more than a new implant, these feature the latest technology, making them the safest as well as the most natural implants on the market. They also have the most extensive warranty and reversibility support programme.
A surgery growing in popularity is Dr V’s fat transfer breast augmentation, recommended to those seeking very modest results, or to balance asymmetries and as an adjunct to implants. This is the most ‘natural’ type, and involves removing fat from stubborn areas such as the abdomen or inner thighs using liposuction, and transferring it to the breasts to sculpt them.
