Professor Ajay Mahajan
Consultant Plastic Surgeon
MBBS, FRCSI, M Med Sc, MD, FRCS (Plast)
I graduated from medical school (MBBS) in 1991. I then went on to do my surgical training in Ireland and attained my fellowship at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (FRCSI) in 1999. Following this, I pursued my interest in plastic surgery and have been working in the specialty since then.
Being keen on establishing a scientific foundation to treating my patients and practicing evidence-based medicine, I have actively participated in research, having done my Master of Medical Sciences in plastic surgery (MMedSc) at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Based on my accomplished academic career, I was offered a research fellowship at the University Hospitals of Geneva, Switzerland, where I pursued my research interests and worked in a wide variety of clinical and lab-based projects that culminated in my Doctorate of Medicine (MD) in plastic surgery.
In 2009, I also passed my specialist exam in plastic surgery (FRCS Plast), following which I was awarded the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) and placed on the specialist register for practising plastic surgery by the General Medical Council (GMC) in the UK. I was appointed Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust in 2011.
I have trained in units recognised for training by the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons and the Specialist Advisory Committee in Plastic Surgery within the UK. I have gathered considerable and varied experience in plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery by working in various units in the UK, Ireland and Switzerland.
I furthered my plastic surgical experience by doing a prestigious fellowship in microsurgery and breast reconstruction at the Gent University Hospital, Belgium. I polished my cosmetic surgical skills by completing my aesthetic surgery fellowship at Akademikliniken, in Stockholm, Sweden, which is Europe’s largest private hospital for cosmetic surgery. Akademikliniken’s ideology is to achieve ‘Beauty Through Science’ and it is one of the forerunners for cosmetic surgery in the world.
