Mr Michael Irwin

Consultant Plastic Surgeon

MBBS, FRCS (Plast)

I am a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital and Addenbrooke’s Hospital. I'm also part of the multi-disciplinary team at the Cambridge Breast Unit. I studied at St Thomas’ Hospital Medical School and have been privileged to train in busy regional plastic surgery units in Chepstow, East Grinstead and London’s Charing Cross Hospital.

I acquired additional expertise in breast reconstruction and plastic surgery of the breast in Atlanta, Georgia; in breast reconstruction at the Royal Marsden Hospital, London and in aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery at the Wellington Hospital, London.

A period of full-time research culminated in me being awarded the Hunterian Professorship by the Royal College of Surgeons of England. While enjoying all aspects of plastic surgery I have a personal interest in breast reconstruction and congenital and aesthetic problems of the breast.

I was listed as one of the top 30 cosmetic doctors in Dr Mark Porter’s guide in The Times newspaper in April 2013, as well as also previously being listed in the London Evening Standard.

I am pleased to offer a comprehensive repertoire of plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures as detailed below, to those seeking to improve/alter their appearance. In keeping with good clinical practice, I prefer to consult with all new patients at least twice - the second time at no extra charge. This allows time to think things over thoroughly and read the information leaflets given to you before proceeding with surgery.
