Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgeon

I believe in offering my patients sound advice that helps them make informed choices. I see the consultation as key to this and therefore set my patients and clients to be at ease for a frank and open discussion at the outset. I further believe in achieving excellence in simplicity using a thoughtful application of appropriate surgical techniques and attention to details.

My private practice covers all aspects of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery.

I qualified from the University of Jos, Nigeria as best graduating student of my set. I completed in Nigerian and West African training in general surgery and plastic surgery and worked as a consultant general and plastic surgeon in Nigeria. I undertook further training at the following renowned plastic surgery units in the UK: the Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit, Glasgow, St Andrews Centre for Plastic Surgery and Burns, Broomfield Hospital Chelmsford, the Queen Victoria Hospital and McIndoe Surgical Centre, both in East Grinstead.

I completed fellowships in cosmetic surgery, breast/microsurgery and hand surgery. I currently hold an NHS consultant post at the Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead and cover the Medway NHS Foundation Trust. I am on the GMC specialist register for plastic surgery, and am also a member of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS).
