Professional profile

Availability: Friday mornings

I am a Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgeon.

My private practice is based in London and Essex and covers all aspects of cosmetic surgery including breast reshaping (breast enlargement, breast reduction, breast lift), facial surgery (facelift, necklift, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty), body contouring (liposuction, tummy tucks), and skin lesions (skin cancer, moles and keloid scars). I also offer private breast reconstruction surgery to patients with breast cancer. This may be carried out at the same time as breast cancer surgery or as a 'delayed reconstruction' procedure. Expert nursing, physiotherapy and consultant support is available to patients having this surgery at Spire Hartswood Hospital.

My NHS practice at St Andrew's Centre specialises in problems of breast development (asymmetry) as well as all aspects of reconstruction following breast cancer. My work often includes the use of microsurgery (typically 'DIEP flaps' and 'TUG flaps'). In addition I have a general plastic surgery clinic for patients with other concerns - skin cancers (facial, trunk or limb), chest or abdominal wall problems, prominent ears - as such I maintain a breadth of practice across all age groups.

I studied medicine at St Bartholomew's Hospital Medical School in London. After graduation I taught anatomy at Cambridge University before undertaking my early surgical training in major teaching hospitals across London. A period of full-time medical research at Imperial College led to the award of my PhD postgraduate degree. My specialist training in plastic surgery followed, starting with a nationally appointed six-year plastic surgery training programme. At the end of this I undertook further training in microsurgery and breast reconstruction in both the UK and Canada.

In recent years I have travelled extensively to learn advanced techniques in cosmetic surgery at renowned international centres, including Atlanta (USA), Nice (France) and Cologne (Germany). The University of London awarded me a Masters in Aesthetic Surgery postgraduate degree. I am a fully accredited specialist in plastic surgery, and am on the Specialist Register in Plastic Surgery with the General Medical Council.
