I am a consultant plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgeon and have worked at Spire Washington Hospital since 1999.
I have recently been awarded the Certificate of Cosmetic Surgery (CCS), which has been awarded by the Joint Colleges of Surgeons and BAPRAS to only a handful of surgeons in the UK, based on scrutiny of their surgical numbers, low complication rates and patient satisfaction over a representative eight-year period.
I was appointed as NHS consultant plastic surgeon to the University Hospital of North Durham in 1998 and have been lead clinician there from 2005-2017. I was MAC representative in Plastic Surgery and Clinical Governance lead at Spire Washington Hospital.
I graduated from the University of Witwatersrand Medical School and trained in plastic and reconstruction surgery in the regional plastic centres at Charing Cross Hospital in London; St John’s Hospital in Edinburgh and completed my senior registrar training at the world famous Canniesburn Hospital in Glasgow.
I have a general plastic and cosmetic surgery practice with subspecialty interests in Breast Surgery (enlargement, uplift, reduction and reconstruction), Facial Rejuvenation (face lift, eyelid reduction, nose re-shaping and ear re-shaping), Body Contouring (liposuction, abdominal reduction, arm lift, thigh lift and body lift) and non-surgical cosmetic procedures (anti-wrinkle treatments, dermal fillers, chemical peels, cryotherapy).
Recent innovations in my practice include CRISALIX 3D imaging, a unique imaging option to see what you might look like after surgery, particularly useful in breast enlargement, which you can view in the comfort of your home.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Matt Erdmann at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Washington Hospital.

I love to spend my free time outdoors so like to go hiking in the surrounding countryside. My daughter and I both love to swim so grab any opportunity we can to do so.
