Mr Shadi Ghali
Consultant Plastic Surgeon
BSc, MBBS, MD, FRCS (Plast)
I am currently a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at the Royal Free, University College London, Mount Vernon and St Albans City hospital. I have trained extensively in plastic and reconstructive surgery having undertaken my training in plastic surgery both in the UK, Europe and the USA. I am entered into the GMC specialist register for plastic surgery.
Following completion of my microvascular reconstruction fellowship in the USA (MD Anderson, Houston, Tx), my current reconstructive practice involves microvascular breast reconstruction and microvascular lower limb reconstruction following sarcoma excisions and trauma cases. I am also active in the abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR) service and have carried out a number of joint cases with the general surgeons. In terms of other complex oncological reconstructions, I also carry out pelvic/perineal/vaginal reconstructions following tumour excision by oncological surgeons and a large part of my work includes the management of skin cancer patients. In the seven years I have been a consultant I have performed over 300 free flaps for breast reconstruction (success 99.7%), abdominal wall reconstruction success 90-96% depending on the complexity, cosmetic breast over 96% success and cosmetic abdomen 99% success.
I am also a full member of the British Association of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (BAPRAS).
I have completed a Cosmetic Fellowship at the world renowned Akademiklinican in Stockholm, Sweden with Dr Per Heden. This allowed me to combine my reconstructive surgical skills with my aesthetic skills in refinements in breast surgery, abdominal surgery and facial surgery as well as surgery following massive weight loss.
I have published comprehensively within the plastic surgery literature throughout my career and regularly present my work internationally at plastic surgery conferences.
