What patients say about Linda Briggs web site


What is Linda Briggs?

Linda was started in 1999, after a close shave with a UK surgeon. Although Linda Briggs face lift was fine, she was shocked to hear that the same surgeon had numerous complaints against him and was suspended by the GMC.


Women's Journal

Linda Briggs will never know, if it was because she was writing a story for a women's magazine that saved her.

Your site, as I said, is the best by far - and thank you for opening my eyes and my mind to all those opportunities out there!  

As she had the income to build a web site, giving free information for patients, she set about doing so, to save others falling into similar potential traps.  At the time the web site was started, there was very little information available and cosmetic surgery was being sold the same as double glazing by sales staff on commission.  There were a lot of patients being given the hard sell for surgery they didn't need.

Daily Mirror, November 17th 2000

As the web site grew, Linda Briggs received more and more enquiries from patients who wanted surgery, but wanted to get it right and didn't know how to begin. She gave up her full time employment in the law and set up her
on line shop to provide an income to support her passion.

This career change, with just 15 years left before retirement, was a bit of a shot in the dark and could have cost Linda Briggs her life savings and no money to retire on, but she felt very passionate and went for it anyway.  See what the Daily Mirror say about her web site

Linda's passion led her to invite a large number of cosmetic surgeons in the UK, to work with her and provide more information for patients.  She was only contacted by one surgeon.  From this one surgeon and many hours of work adding researched data to the web site, other surgeons from overseas started to contact Linda and wanted to work with her.  Over the years, more and more UK and overseas surgeons have become part of the Linda Briggs network and they give information and advice freely to ensure that patients are not pressurised and go into surgery with their eyes open.

Trading Standards are very happy that Linda Briggs is totally independent and as far as is known, is probably the only truly independent service offering advice on cosmetic surgeons.  Linda Briggs is and has never been, allied to any one surgeon clinic or hospital

Linda Briggs travelled around the world looking at the facilities available and speaking to surgeons and their patients to get a feel for their work.  Not all surgeons are accepted by Linda Briggs as the criteria set is very high.  Not only must they have the education, training and qualifications and memberships expected of a surgeon, but they must also be approachable and be able to deal with minor problems efficiently.  As cosmetic surgery is not an exact science, there are occasional adjustments that need to be made.

The information provided to members of the public, is totally free.  For services that require third party involvement, such as flight bookings, there is a minimal charge to cover administration.

Linda Briggs can offer you as much or as little help as you need to source your surgery.  Some consultations can be booked, advice re flights and hotels/self-catering accommodation can be provided where applicable..  Linda Briggs can give you information, advice and suitable contacts thus making your trip for surgery relatively stress free.  If you prefer to make your own contact with the surgeons on the web sites, please use the get info now buttons available.

Linda Briggs answers all email enquiries, but due to the large numbers received daily, please be patient if you do not receive a reply the same day. Please see other ways to
contact Linda Briggs.

The name Linda Briggs is now a registered trademark and any infringement of that trademark could lead to prosecution. As Linda became more and more successful many people have tried to copy her business and use her name to give it credibility.  If you come across any suspicious use of the name, please do let us know.
