Mr Miles Banwell is a Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgeon. His private practice is based in London and Essex and covers all aspects of cosmetic surgery including breast reshaping (breast enlargement, breast reduction, breast lift), facial surgery (facelift, necklift, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty), body contouring (liposuction, tummy tucks), and skin lesions (skin cancer, moles and keloid scars).
He also offers private breast reconstruction surgery to patients with breast cancer. This may be carried out at the same time as breast cancer surgery or as a ‘delayed reconstruction’ procedure. Expert nursing, physiotherapy and consultant support is available to patients having this surgery at Spire Hartswood Hospital.
Miles Banwell's NHS practice at St Andrew’s Centre specialises in problems of breast development (asymmetry) as well as all aspects of reconstruction following breast cancer. His work often includes the use of microsurgery (typically ‘DIEP flaps’ and ‘TUG flaps’). In addition he has a general plastic surgery clinic for patients with other concerns - skin cancers (facial, trunk or limb), chest or abdominal wall problems, prominent ears – as such he maintains a breadth of practice across all age groups.
Miles studied medicine at St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical School in London. After graduation he taught anatomy at Cambridge University before undertaking his early surgical training in major teaching hospitals across London. A period of full-time medical research at Imperial College led to the award of his PhD postgraduate degree. His specialist training in plastic surgery followed, starting with a nationally appointed six-year plastic surgery training programme. At the end of this he undertook further training in microsurgery and breast reconstruction in both the UK and Canada. In recent years he has travelled extensively to learn advanced techniques in cosmetic surgery at renowned international centres, including Atlanta (USA), Nice (France) and Cologne (Germany). The University of London awarded Mr Banwell a Masters in Aesthetic Surgery postgraduate degree.
