Having graduated in 1990, I completed a comprehensive training programme in plastic reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. This included specialist training in Edinburgh, London and Newcastle. I am proud to have undertaken periods of specialist aesthetic surgery training in London and specialist fellowships and study with some of the world's most renowned plastic surgeons, in Sydney, Toronto, California and Tokyo.

I have been a practising consultant in aesthetic plastic surgery since 2002. I am a full member of BAAPS and BAPRAS. I am active in the field of plastic surgery research, in particular outcomes from aesthetic surgery. Recent publications in respected plastic surgery journals on outcomes of abdominoplasty, ear recontouring and reconstruction, facial augmentation and liposuction have been widely quoted in plastic surgery literature. In addition, presentations have been given at British and European plastic surgery conferences and invited lectures delivered to a variety of professional audiences on those and others.

In the NHS, I am currently lead clinician for plastic surgery in Edinburgh. I run the Scottish national ear reconstruction programme for children and adults with ear malformations. I treat a large number of children and adults with facial disfigurement using the latest techniques, including fat transfer.

My aesthetic practice includes breast surgery, abdominoplasty, body recontouring and facial aesthetic surgery, including rhinoplasty and otoplasty.

I am fully certified in all areas of cosmetic surgery by the Royal College of Surgeons. This is a new scheme to certify training, experience and quality outcome measures in cosmetic surgery. I am currently the first and only surgeon to be certified.

Personal Profile

Having offended my West Coast family by marrying a girl from Edinburgh, I still live with my wife and four children. I find family life far too hectic and so spend much of my time working. I am particularly proud that my devotion to surgery has led to a particularly poor golf swing and propensity to capsize my sailing dinghy. I have on numerous occasions tried to drown my wife and children with said manoeuvre but on each occasion local fishermen and even the RNLI have come to the rescue! Several times a year I manage to escape to the West Coast with my pals who do their level best to drown me.
