This week, for our exclusive look under the skin of the Secret Surgery team, we’ll be speaking to the lovely Emma Cummings, who is an Aftercare Nurse in Scotland. In other words, for our Scottish patients, once you’re out of the hands of our surgeons and nurses over in Poland, you’ll be in Emma’s good hands!
What is the biggest challenge in your job? “The biggest challenge in my NHS job is to juggle so many hats all at once: nurse, manager, leader, counsellor, and politician – to name but a few! In my aesthetics business the biggest challenge is keeping up to date with such a fast moving clinical area when working in relative isolation from other practitioners.”
What is the best part of your job? “The best part of my job is seeing the difference that I can make to people’s lives and their confidence by using aesthetic techniques such as dermal fillers.”
If you hadn’t worked in cosmetic surgery, what would you have done? “I think I would maybe have gone into the army as a nurse or medic, but secretly I harbour a desire to be a traffic police cop!”
If you could treat yourself to a procedure, what would it be? “If I could treat myself then I would have a blephraplastly as I hate my droopy eyes – and hopefully I will return to Poland in the not too distant future to get this done!”
What do you like to do in your spare time? “I enjoy many sports and in the east I have run marathons – but my dodgy knees don’t allow that any more, so I stick to swimming and reading lots of books!”
