MB, ChB, FRCS(Ed)(Plast)
I have been practicing plastic surgery in Edinburgh as a consultant since 1987. I completed my six years of specialist training in plastic surgery in London (North East Thames Regional Unit, The London Hospital, Whitechapel & St Bartholomew's Hospital).
I had a busy and varied NHS practice specialising in skin cancer, facial reconstruction, breast surgery (including breast enlargement surgery), hand surgery (including congenital hand surgery) and lasers. I took early retirement from the NHS in 2008 to concentrate solely on my private practice where I now work full time.
The majority of my work is cosmetic facial and breast surgery. I have particular expertise in facelift surgery and rhinoplasty. I use liposculpture (liposuction and fat transfer), laser, Botox and fillers to compliment my facial surgical work. In addition, I run a one-stop skin lesion clinic at the Ambulatory Care Unit of the Spire Murrayfield Hospital. This clinic offers patients immediate surgical or laser removal of skin cancer and cosmetic excision of moles following the initial consultation. I have extensive experience of revision breast augmentation surgery.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Awf Quaba at Spire include:
British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS)
British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS)
Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh
I have published over 60 peer reviewed articles on a broad range of subjects. These have included work on the use of lasers for birth marks, skin cancer and lower limb trauma. My current research interests are focused around my cosmetic practice. These include revision breast augmentation and facial rejuvenation.
