I specialise in facial plastic surgery including cosmetic surgery of the face such as rhinoplasty, facelift, necklift, eyelid surgery, otoplasty, jaw and chin surgery and have been a pioneer in facial feminising surgery for over 20 years.

Over a 35 year experience as a trainee and consultant surgeon I have performed thousands of facial plastics and reconstructive procedures including head and neck cancer operations, microvascular reconstructions for oral, facial, and skull-base defects caused by cancer, trauma and disease. I have carried out voluntary work in Nigeria and Ethiopia for facially deformed children following Cancrum Oris.

I have 25 years' experience as a facial plastic surgeon in private practice performing several thousand rhinoplasties, facelifts, blepharoplasties, otoplasties, jaw and chin operations, and facial feminising procedures.

I trained in Liverpool, London and Edinburgh, with short spells in Germany and America. I am dually qualified in Medicine and Dentistry and have had extensive postgraduate training in General Surgery, Facial Plastic Surgery and Maxillofacial Surgery.

I have been a Consultant and Lead Surgeon in the Department of Maxillofacial and Facial Plastic Surgery at the Central Manchester and Manchester Children's University Hospital for over 20 years from 1991 to 2013. I am now employed as an Independent Practitioner specialising in Facial Plastic Surgery.

I have been chair of the Medical Advisory Committee(MAC) for the Victoria Park Hospital (BMI), Manchester, 2005 - 2010, and the Clinical Manager for the Department of Maxillofacial and Facial Plastic Surgery Central Manchester University Hospitals, 1995-2013.
