Mr Simon Lee
Consultant Plastic Surgeon
MBBS, MSc, FRCS, FRCS (Plastic Surg)
I have worked, trained and taught in some of the most famous plastic surgery hospitals in the world including: Canniesburn Hospital, Glasgow, Great Ormond Street, London, The Kleinert Institute, USA, and The Royal Adelaide Hospital, Australia.
Choosing Bristol as my base, I am a Consultant Plastic Surgeon treating patients with congenital (birth) deformity, traumatic injuries and cancer, offering both cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. I am a frequent attendee of pioneering cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery meetings and conferences both in America and Europe. I am an invited expert lecturer for the BAAPS national cosmetic training programme and have been a tutor at the Royal College of Surgeons for several years. I led the NHS South West Regional Plastic Surgery Unit from 2010-2015 and started the Plastic Surgery and Burns Unit at the Bristol Children's Hospital in 2014.
I've built up an enviable reputation over the years, offering the best surgical techniques to suit each individual patient, and I am regularly recommended by cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeons, GPs and other medical professionals alike. Supported by my surgical team I can offer the very best in personal and professional care for every patient considering cosmetic surgery or less invasive rejuvenation techniques.
Before specialising in plastic surgery, I worked in general surgery in London and the South West. During this time, I volunteered my services and vast experience for free, travelling around the world with Medicine Sans Frontieres as a surgeon to help save the lives of men, women and children who were ill or injured in war torn countries such as Papua New Guinea, Somalia and Ethiopia.
I continue to be a pioneer in the field of aesthetic surgery and non-invasive cosmetic procedures and I am uniquely placed to give you the most up to date and best advice on attaining your individual goals.

At university I cofounded The Griffin Community Trust, a multi-million pound charity, which to this day continues to provide housing for the elderly and poor in east London.
Outside of plastic surgery and family life I am a keen sportsman and among other achievements have been National Rowing Champion in a variety of boats for seven consecutive years. In 2013 my masters VIII won the world Championships on Lake Varese Italy.
