Miss Siobhan O'Ceallaigh
Consultant Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon
MB BCH, MD, FRSCI (Plast)
I qualified in medicine from University College Dublin in 1996 and following early plastic surgical training in Ireland, I moved to Manchester in 2002 to undergo a research fellowship at the University of Manchester. After the awarding of my doctoral thesis in 2005, I commenced higher surgical training in plastic and cosmetic surgery in the North West training region.
I was awarded the FRCS (plast) fellowship in plastic surgery, and then became a National Oncoplastic Breast fellow. Where I undertook my fellowship at the renowned Nottingham Breast Institute learning, about the management of all aspects of breast cancer treatment, as well as refining skills in breast reconstruction and aesthetics.
I also undertook a National cosmetic surgery training fellowship in Nottingham and, on awarding of her Certificate of Specialist training and entry onto the Specialist register in Plastic Surgery, I was appointed as a Plastic and Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle in 2012.
In June 2013, I returned to Manchester to take up a Breast Reconstruction post at Wythenshawe Hospital.
I specialise in microsurgical breast reconstruction (DIEP, TRAM, TUG flaps) and other complex and revision breast surgery. I also specialises in the treatment of developmental breast asymmetry and aesthetic surgery.
I have previously presented at national and international meetings and have also published in scientific journals and surgical textbooks.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Miss Siobhan O'Ceallaigh at Spire include:
