Virtual consultations:

I was educated at Harvard University, USA and attended medical school at University College Hospital in London. I am board certified in Plastic Surgery in the UK. At every stage of my training and career I took every opportunity to learn from the best surgeons worldwide. During my fellowship in the USA I won the prestigious Gaspar Anastasi Award for aesthetic surgery.

As a consultant I pioneered breast reconstruction operations and devoted much time to setting up a world renowned breast reconstruction unit in Norfolk. We even carried out some operations for “Botched up Bodies” at the NNUH.

My practice is now solely at Spire and consists mainly of breast cases, often complex ones such as revision surgery, unequal breast symmetrisation, breast reductions and lifts, but also abdominoplasties, arm reductions, labiaplasties and non surgical facial rejuvenation with natural fillers and fat (the liquid face lift). It also involves the aesthetic removal of small lesions, warts, moles, cysts and some skin cancers and the treatment of hyperhidrosis.

I always strive to give a straightforward honest opinion of options available for treatment, with a clear discussion of the risks involved and what is required to optimise the surgical outcome.
