Our philosophy

At LASE Cosmetic, our ethos is to offer the very highest standards of patient care and service while, at the same time, adopting evidence-based cosmetic treatments that allow our patients to benefit from modern techniques and perhaps avoid the need for traditional general anaesthetic based, overnight surgery.

We have introduced technology such as CoolSculpting (fat freezing) and Renuvion (skin tightening) to the north east which means our patients have exclusive access to the best evidence-based technology in the region. Problems that might have required surgery in the past can be dealt with non-surgically with no down time. Of course, surgery might sometimes still be required and, if day surgery, can be offered on-site, with overnight stay surgery being performed at hospitals off-site.

Access to visit the clinic is very easy as we are located next to West Jesmond Metro and there is ample local parking which means patients are willing to travel from all over the country to access our high standards.

Our facility and practice mean we can easily identify the best option for you as an individual (whether surgical or non-surgical) no-matter what your concern and provide you with our trademark honest advice and ethical care.

LASE Cosmetic is the dream of husband and wife team Ahmed and Lisa Ali-Khan, who have combined their 40 years’ aesthetic experience which is like no other in Newcastle or the North East.

Our ethos is simple – to offer patients tailored advice and treatments which fit their needs and are completely safety and outcome focused, whether that’s a simple skin rejuvenation treatment or multiple surgical procedures with high patient satisfaction.

And because of our expertise across cosmetic and plastic surgery, the team at LASE is uniquely positioned to determine whether surgical or non-surgical procedures are the best option for the individual – avoiding unnecessary general anaesthetics and overnight stays.

At LASE’s clinic in Jesmond in central Newcastle-upon-Tyne, you can expect the very best in advanced cosmetic treatments, many of which are exclusive to us in the North East.

One such procedure is CoolSculpting, the world-leading fat-freezing system which provides safe treatment with permanent results – this is the only fat-freezing procedure in the world with FDA clearance and LASE is the only clinic between York and Edinburgh that offers it.

Ahmed and Lisa re passionate about what they do and pride themselves on delivering excellent results for patients while maintaining incredibly high-standards.

At the heart of everything the clinic offers is the welfare of the patient – the team will always cross refer between our surgical and non-surgical capabilities to ensure the patient is given the best advice.

Mr Ali-Khan is well trained in all elements of cosmetic surgery but is known in particular for his specialist aesthetic experience in complex breast and body surgery. Patients seek his services as he has a reputation for the highest standards in surgical care and for the easy manner he has with patients, being professional always but having none of the negative stereotypes sometimes associated with consultant surgeons. This reputation as kind and thoughtful is confirmed in his patient reviews on RealSelf.com.

Mrs Ali-Khan is a full member of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses and is the driving force behind the LASE Cosmetic clinic. She is committed to the ethos of high standards and safety within the aesthetic industry but is just as well known for her friendly and welcoming manner.
