What is cosmetic repair?

Plastic Surgeon’s service uses fine finishing techniques, many originally used in the automotive trade, but also drawing on the skills of French polishing. Our highly skilled Finishers use a vast array of proprietary fillers, hardeners, polishes and colours, to mend surfaces that have suffered damage such as scratches, dents, chips, gouges or staining.

Cosmetic repair does not include structural repairs. It focuses on surfaces because these are most vulnerable to damage and everyday wear and tear. The range of surfaces and items that Plastic Surgeon can repair is vast and our cosmetic repairs save over 2,400 tonnes of damaged products from going to landfill waste every year.

Our Finishers are trained in colour theory and colour matching by eye, so that they can replicate intricate patterns such as wood grain or marble.

Until you actually start looking at the situation of having to replace something like an IPS unit with all the disruption, and then see the ease with which Plastic Surgeon can sort it out, you don’t realize just what a good option repair is over replacement. The site manager was amazed at the range of items that Plastic Surgeon could put right.
