Professional profile

Availability - Murrayfield: Friday 2pm-6pm, alternate Saturday 9.30am-12.30pm.

I was educated at Fettes College, Edinburgh. I completed my medical degree at Cambridge University and also obtained a BA honours degree in Medical Ethics, Psychology and the History of Medicine.

I commenced my plastic surgery training in 2003. My specialist training was carried out in Aberdeen and Glasgow. In 2011 I spent a year on fellowship in Australia at the world renowned Royal Adelaide Hospital. I gained extensive experience in microsurgery and reconstruction of complex facial/ head and neck conditions as well as general plastic surgery and aesthetic surgery.

I completed a cosmetic surgery fellowship in Edinburgh with my father and have worked closely with him ever since, gaining invaluable experience on the finer points of cosmetic plastic surgery. I have interests in all aspects of cosmetic surgery including those that I routinely carries out in my NHS practice such as breast augmentation, breast reduction, body contouring and facial plastic surgery.

I am passionate about training and teaches on a number of courses. I am involved in the setting of the written plastic surgery exam for trainees nearing the end of their training. I am a reviewer for the Journal of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery and many of my own publications have been widely cited.

I am interested in all aspects of cosmetic plastic surgery and in particular I have an interest in body contouring and breast surgery including breast augmentation, reduction and male gynaecomastia surgery. My head and neck background helps to compliment my interest in facial aesthetic surgery where my main interests are rhinoplasty, facelift and eyelid surgery. I do not see children in my private practice.

Personal Profile

My time outside of work is spent with my family and three children. I enjoy watching my boys play rugby and spending time gardening with my daughter (the boys refuse to help). I am interested in photography, technology, football and current affairs.
