Mr Kenneth Kok
Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgeon
MBChB MRCS MSc(Hons) FRCS(plast)
"I love working at the Spire Little Aston Hospital because the staff here are very much aligned with my goals, that is to provide the best possible care to our patients to ensure optimum outcomes are achieved."
I graduated from the University of Aberdeen with distinction and honours in medicine and surgery. A three year basic surgical rotation followed, resulting in completion of the MRCS(Ed) surgical exam. I then undertook a period of research, being awarded a Masters of Science with distinction. Following this, I completed a six year period of intensive training on the West Midlands plastic surgery rotation, culminating in passing the specialist exam in plastic surgery FRCS(plast). In addition, I have undertaken prestigious National Fellowships in aesthetic surgery, laser surgery and skin cancer surgery prior to my appointment as a consultant plastic surgeon in 2014 at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
Working at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Birmingham, I have a specialist interest in cosmetic surgery, skin cancer surgery and lower limb trauma, but I also undertake all aspects of general plastic surgery. I am a core member of the skin cancer and lower limb trauma specialist multidisciplinary teams at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. In my private practice, I offer the full range of non-surgical and surgical cosmetic procedures as well as eyelid surgery, facelifting, rhinoplasty, ear surgery, breast reduction, breast mastopexy, breast augmentation, gynaecomastia surgery and abdominoplasty.
I am passionately involved in training and regularly undertake teaching sessions with the West Midlands plastic surgery trainees. I have also published extensively in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery with numerous articles in peer-reviewed plastic surgery journals and book chapters. I also present at international and national plastic surgery meetings and am a peer reviewer for the British Journal of Surgery and the Journal of Plastic and Aesthetic Research.
In my first year as a consultant, I was shortlisted in the top three at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham as providing the "best in care". This was the highest accolade that a clinician/surgeon could achieve each year in the hospital's annual awards.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family. I try to lead an active life and enjoy playing football and tennis. I am an advanced PADI scuba diver and have dived in a number of sites around the world. I also enjoy painting which allows me to de-stress as well as express myself in a different way.
