Halt the ageing process with a non-surgical procedure

After our exclusive one poll revealed that almost half of women are unhappy with the way they look, we performed a non-surgical cosmetic procedure on 47-year-old Annabel Spooner who felt that she had aged over the last few years following a 'miserable' divorce.

In a bid to halt the ageing process and achieve a refreshed look, Annabel underwent a thread lift, a Nefertiti lift for her neck and what's commonly known as vampire therapy.

Watch above as Dr Hilary, Dr Kahn and Dr Devine discuss the procedures, and see the results!

Tiny heart implant set to save lives

It's hard to believe that something so tiny could save so many lives, but a tiny heart implant is being hailed as a miracle.

A cutting-edge device the size of a grain of rice is being used by experts at Guy’s and St Thomas’ to help patients with heart failure.

The cardiac resynchronisation therapy device is implanted into the chambers of the heart to treat heart failure. Unlike conventional devices, the innovative implant has no leads and is placed directly inside the heart tissue. This makes it work more efficiently and over time the heart’s lining grows over it, so it becomes part of the heart.

Dr Hilary explains more in the video above.
