Mr Hyder Ridha
Consultant Plastic Surgeon
BSc (Hons), MB BS, 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 perform reconstructive surgery of the breast including the use of microsurgical techniques. I also provide skin cancer treatment.
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.
My aesthetic surgery training was undertaken at the McIndoe Surgical Centre and Harley Street, where I developed expertise in the most advanced techniques in cosmetic surgery.
In addition to my clinical practice, I am a clinical supervisor to higher surgical trainees in plastic surgery training and am also a faculty member on microsurgical and FRCS (Plast) revision courses.
I believe aesthetic surgery should rejuvenate and create aesthetic harmony and therefore aim for a natural and fresh look. I tailor my care to each patient in order to meet their expectations and achieve the desired outcome.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Hyder Ridha at Spire include:
Spire Harpenden Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
