Mr Nilesh Sojitra
Consultant Plastic Surgeon
BSc, MBChB, MSc, MRCSEd, FRCSEd (Plast)
I am one of Spire Harpenden's popular cosmetic consultants. With decades of experience, hundreds of satisfied patients and a wealth of knowledge and expertise including breast, facial and body contouring as well as a strong interest in breast reconstruction after cancer. I have performed over 10,000 procedures. I am able to offer a specialist service for patients interested in rectifying prominent ears. The treatment is called EarFold™. I am able to offer 3D scanning for patients considering breast augmentation, this allows you to make informed decisions about your new look.
I have trained extensively in plastic and reconstructive surgery having undertaken my training in plastic surgery both in the UK (London) and internationally. At University College London I pursued research into nerve injuries and scarring which led to the award of a masters degree. I am entered into the GMC specialist register for plastic surgery. I am also a full member of the British Association of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (BAPRAS) and the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS). I am currently a consultant plastic surgeon at the Royal Free, University College London, Mount Vernon and Luton and Dunstable hospitals.
I have published comprehensively within the plastic surgery literature throughout my career and regularly present my work internationally at plastic surgery conferences. I am actively involved in training young surgeons. I have also been involved with media through ITV and Channel 4 documentaries.
My broad training and international fellowships in breast reconstruction have enabled me to develop special interests within the broad field of plastic surgery - my specialist interests in cosmetic surgery include: breast, facial and body contouring as well as a strong interest in breast reconstruction after cancer.
