I offer a range of plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures to provide a more pleasing appearance to my clients. I trained in internationally acclaimed units in the UK and USA. On return to the UK, I was appointed a Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in St Andrew's Centre for Plastic Surgery and Burns, where my practice consists largely of breast reconstruction, hand reconstruction, skin cancer surgery and body contouring procedures. I am also the lead reconstructive plastic surgeon at Whipps Cross University Hospital, London, where I developed the breast reconstruction service (immediate and delayed) following mastectomy for cancer.

My private practice includes procedures such as facelift, browlift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), ear pinning, rhinoplasty (nose re-shaping), breast enlargement, breast reduction, breast uplift, male breast reduction (gynaecomastia), abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction and calf augmentation. I offer non-surgical procedures such as dermal fillers, chemical peels and muscle relaxers.

In addition, I operate on patients with Dupuytren's disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, ganglion, trigger finger and hand injuries. I also treat patients with skin cancer and moles.

I offer a personal service from consultation to post-treatment care. Consultations are not rushed and time is given to discuss your operation and answer any concerns you may have. I will always give an honest opinion and provide leaflets for further reading. Patients have the option of seeing me twice before a cosmetic procedure and there is no charge for the second consultation. This allows the patient to digest the information from the first consultation and to undertake their own research so that they feel able to make an informed decision about whether to go ahead with the procedure.
