Professional profile

I am a consultant plastic surgeon on the General Medical Council specialist register and specialise in all aspects of plastic surgery particularly cosmetic surgery, breast surgery, hand surgery and major nerve surgery.

I have a large children's and plastic surgery practice and over the last 25 years have developed a very extensive cosmetic surgery practice. I am the editor of an award winning text book and the current editor of the Oxford Textbook of Plastic Surgery. I have run educational courses in cosmetic surgery and I also teach cosmetic surgery.

I regularly publish articles in scientific peer review journals and contribute to a wide range of textbooks as an invited author.
