Professional profile

I graduated in 1992 from medical school before embarking on my surgical training. In 1996 I became a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in recognition of this. Having completed my general surgery, I undertook training in plastic surgery both in the UK and abroad in Oxford, London, USA and Australasia. In 2001 I was awarded the higher post graduate degree of Master of Surgery (ChM) for research carried out at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Buckinghamshire. I was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in Plastic Surgery, (FRCS (Plast) in 2002.

I am a fully accredited plastic surgeon and, as such, I am entered into the General Medical Council (GMC) specialist register for plastic surgery. I am a full member of the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) and the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS).

My clinical interests include, cosmetic facial surgery and cosmetic breast surgery.

I have been published comprehensively within the plastic surgery literature throughout my career and I present my work internationally at plastic surgery conferences. I am also actively involved in teaching both at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
