Professional profile

I am a Consultant Plastic Surgeon in full time private practice in East Yorkshire. I am on the General Medical Council (GMC) specialist register for plastic surgery, certified by the Royal College of Surgeons of England in plastic surgery and a member of British Association of Plastic Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS). I obtained my medical degree from St Mary’s Hospital Medical School, London and completed my plastic surgery training in London. I am also double international-fellowship trained, having completed a microsurgery fellowship in Taiwan and the Facial Plastic Surgery fellowship in The Netherlands and Belgium, where I learned advanced cosmetic surgery techniques. I am also honoured to have received advanced training from some of the masters in lymphoedema and lipoedema surgery from around the world. I have a keen academic interest and presented at national and international plastic surgery conferences. I also co-authored a book on the surgical management of lymphoedema and have written numerous peer-reviewed scientific papers. My philosophy is that patients should have a tailor-made, natural and beautiful result. My aesthetic eye and attention to detail ensures patients receive the result they desire. No two plastic surgeons are the same, and the plastic surgeon you choose absolutely makes a difference. I am highly skilled in the latest cosmetic surgery techniques including local anaesthetic facelift, natural breast enlargement with fat, Bodyjet liposuction, Brazilian tummy tuck and facial fat grafting.
