say about Linda Briggs web site
is Linda Briggs?
Linda Briggs.co.uk 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.
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

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,

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

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
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.

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
