Mr Hyder Ridha
Consultant Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon
MB BS, BSc (Hons), FRCS (Plast)
I am a consultant plastic and cosmetic surgeon practicing in Hertfordshire and London. My practice covers all aspects of surgical and non-surgical aesthetics of the face (including eyes, ears and nose), breast (including breast enlargement) and body.
I specialise in facelift and necklift, non-surgical facial rejuvenation, eye bag removal (bleharoplasty), ear pinning, nose reshaping (rhinoplasty), non-surgical and surgical, breast enlargement (augmentation) utilising Crisalix 3D scanning to help patients with their decision making, breast uplift, breast reduction, correction of inverted nipples, breast asymmetry surgery, removal of breast implants, fat grafting to breasts, breast reconstruction following mastectomy, male breast reduction (gynecomastia correction), mummy makeovers, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposculpture for both male and female, arm reduction, thigh lift, labial reduction, cosmetic fat transfer and malignant skin lesion removal.
I completed my specialist training in plastic surgery in the East of England in Cambridge, Norwich and Stevenage. I subsequently undertook a microsurgical fellowship in London, developing my interests in breast and head and neck microsurgical reconstruction.
I am Clinical Director for plastic surgery within East and North Herts NHS Trust.
I act as clinical and educational supervisor to the plastic surgery specialist trainees and am also a faculty member on FRCS (Plast) revision courses.
With many years of experience, I pride myself in being able to offer innovative and state-of-the-art plastic and aesthetic procedures. I regularly receive very positive feedback from patients and many “word of mouth” referrals.
I believe that aesthetic surgery should rejuvenate and create aesthetic harmony and therefore aim for a natural and fresh look. I feel that every patient is unique and has varying reasons and motivations for choosing surgery. With this in mind I like to build a good relationship with the patient to create an understanding of their desired outcomes, creating a trusting relationship with the patient in order to be able to manage their expectations and to set joint goals that allows the patient to have an informed choice and be able to evaluate their options, and for both surgeon and patient to create a surgical plan that is unique.
