Dr Nestor’s Medical & Cosmetic Centre has grown exponentially since opening in April 2016. Located in Edinburgh’s prestigious New Town, the modern and opulent clinic is perfectly positioned for the local clientele; this is a well-heeled area of Edinburgh where residents are interested in high-quality procedures, outstanding results, excellent service, discretion and professionalism at all times, all of which are found at Dr Nestor’s Medical & Cosmetic Centre. 

Since its launch in spring 2016, the clinic has developed greatly from its origins in aesthetic medicine. Its initial offering of helping patients age well is still the most popular services in the clinic, but Dr Nestor has worked hard to expand the reach of the clinic. As such, the Medical & Cosmetic Centre now offers a state-of-the-art hair restoration centre offering FUE/FUT procedures, a women’s health department (offering revolutionary ThermiVa treatments and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy), a skin health service and a private GP practice. 

The clinic has treated over 2000 patients since its launch only 2 years ago and has seen its appeal develop thanks to its ethos of responsible practice and treatment only where Dr Nestor and his team feel it is necessary. Patients report feeling safe, respected, relaxed and at ease during their visits, and understand that Dr Nestor’s priority is patient wellbeing and safety at all times.
