Mr Irfan Khan
Consultant Plastic and Aesthetic surgeon
BSc, FRCSI, FRCS (Plast)
I have more than 20 years experience in plastic surgery and have spent the last nine years as a consultant in the NHS. I have a busy private practice in the North West region. I take personal interest in all my patients, seeing them personally pre-operatively and post-operatively. My philosophy is to listen to patients and treat them according to their wishes and desires.
I started my career in surgery in 1986 and have worked in plastic surgery since 1994. I am an NHS consultant in hand and plastic surgery and I am on the specialist register of the General Medical Council achieving the CCT. I also hold the specialist FRCS (Plast) qualification.
During my training I completed fellowships in aesthetic surgery, microsurgery and hand surgery.
I have a lot of experience in cosmetic surgery working as a consultant since 2008. Due to this experience I am able to carry out all aspects of cosmetic surgery in a safe way, and achieving consistently good results for my patients.
I am a keen teacher who has always been involved in training other surgeons. I teach Plastic Surgery Skills courses at the Royal College of Surgeons of England. I am also part of the teaching faculty at upper and lower limb spasticity courses in Liverpool.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Irfan Khan at Spire include:
Spire Liverpool Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.

I take a keen interest in sports. I play cricket for Rainhill Cricket Club in the Sunday league. This helps me relax and keep fit. I spend a lot of time with my young daughter cycling and taking her to different places of interest.
