Mr Omar Quaba

Consultant Plastic Surgeon

MBBChir, MA, FRCS (Plast)

Specialises in

I was appointed as an NHS consultant in 2011 and commenced my private practice at the Spire Hospital Edinburgh in 2014. I am one of the few doctors in the UK to have completed voluntary Cosmetic Certification in all areas with the Royal College of Surgeons.

I grew up in Edinburgh and was educated at Fettes College. I completed my medical degree at Cambridge University and also obtained a BA honours degree in Medical Ethics, Psychology and the History of Medicine.

My specialist plastic surgery training was undertaken in Scotland, and I spent a year on a fellowship in Australia at the world-renowned Royal Adelaide Hospital. I gained extensive experience in microsurgery and reconstruction of complex facial/head and neck conditions as well as general plastic surgery and aesthetic surgery.

I completed a cosmetic surgery fellowship in Edinburgh with my father Awf Quaba and have worked closely with him ever since, gaining invaluable experience on the subtler points of cosmetic plastic surgery. I have particular interests in cosmetic breast surgery including gynaecomastia, facial plastic surgery and labiaplasty. My NHS work covers head and neck skin cancer and perineal reconstruction.

I am keen on training and am the lead faculty member for the facial aesthetic cadaver course held in Dundee. I am involved in the setting of the written plastic surgery exam for trainees nearing the end of their training and am a reviewer for the Journal of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery. Many of my own publications have been widely cited.

Special clinical interests: My main NHS clinical interests are head and neck surgery and reconstruction, advanced skin cancer, perineal and gynaecological reconstruction and lower limb reconstruction. I am interested in all aspects of cosmetic plastic surgery and in particular I have an interest in body contouring and breast surgery including breast augmentation, reduction and male gynaecomastia surgery. My head and neck background helps to compliment my interest in facial aesthetic surgery where my main interests are facelift and eyelid surgery. I do not see children in my private practice.
