Professional profile

I have a solid grounding in all aspects of plastic and reconstructive surgery, with more than 15 years' total experience in the specialty. I was schooled in the UK but did my medical training in Lahore, Pakistan. My plastic surgery training has been in every province of the UK, including Northern Ireland. I am a fully accredited plastic surgeon in the UK. I have been an NHS consultant since February 2005, working in one of the largest units in the country.

I treat patients with cancers of the head and neck and am also developing a facial paralysis service. Surgery for these conditions often involves the use of state of the art reconstructive techniques, including microsurgery. I also have an interest in cosmetic surgery.

My practice includes cosmetic surgery to the face, nose, breast and abdomen, liposculpture, prominent ear correction and a number of other procedures including non-surgical treatment. I currently use an Iphone application to show patients how they would look after different procedures.

Personal Profile

I am happily married with three wonderful children, two boys and a girl. My wife is also a doctor. I drive my wife to distraction with my addiction to sports (especially football, cricket and golf) and music. I am a huge fan of the Beatles. I sing and play keyboards and the guitar, having done so in a band in my student days. I am known amongst my friends and family as a fountain of trivial knowledge, though I argue that knowledge is never trivial. I love to read when I'm allowed to, be it fiction, politics, newspapers, sports magazines or music magazines.
