Mr David Crawford
Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeon
MBChB, FRCS (Ed), FRCS (plast)
I specialise in cosmetic and plastic surgical and non-surgical treatments including botox, fillers, skin cancer removals, reconstructive surgery, gynaecomastia, dermatology surgery and post weight loss surgery. I am on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council (GMC) as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon.
I qualified from Leeds University Medical School in 1984 MBCHB with a distinction in surgery and the McGill prize for best performing student in surgery.
My passion for plastic surgery emerged while at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, USA marking the beginning of my career in plastic surgery. Returning to England, I trained for five years in surgical rotation at St James's University Hospital, Leeds. My training enabled me to work with many of the leading plastic and cosmetic surgeons in the Greater London area and in Canniesburn Hospital, Glasgow. Appointed as Consultant Plastic Surgeon at The Glasgow Royal Infirmary Hospitals in 1995, I later took up a new appointment as Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Wexham Park Hospital and King Edward VII Hospital, Windsor, taking over from my mentor in cosmetic surgery, Mr Magdy Saad, who retired from the NHS.
I have worked in the spirit and tradition of my mentor Mr Magdy Saad continuing the thriving cosmetic surgery practice for over 10 years. Patients are regularly referred to me from all over the UK, Europe and overseas including the Middle East and USA.
Working for the NHS as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon, I led the cleft lip and palate team regularly carrying out neonatal cleft lip repairs until the service recently consolidated. Since December 2006 I have worked solely in private practice.
I have held office positions as Secretary of the Windsor Medical Society, Secretary of the plastic surgery section of the Royal Society of Medicine, Secretary of the Face, Head and Neck Interest Group in Plastic Surgery and more recently an Assessor for The Royal College of Surgeons of England. I attend international meetings to keep in the forefront of cosmetic surgery and have made presentations at both international and national meetings.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr David Crawford at Spire include:
British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons
British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons
Royal society of medicine – Plastic Surgery Section
International Association of Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS)
I am married with four children. Outside work I enjoy spending time with my family, skiing, sailing, good food and fine wine as well as keeping fit. I collect paintings and am a season ticket holder and fan of the London Wasps Rugby team.
