Professional profile

I am a Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon working in the NHS and at Spire Washington for the past seven years. My training in Plastic Surgery started 17 years ago and covered all aspects of the specialty including a comprehensive grounding in Reconstructive and Cosmetic procedures.

I have a specialist interest in breast reconstruction and breast reshaping procedures and can offer a full range of techniques when considering the needs of my patients. I enjoy working at the Spire Washington Hospital where I have developed my practice in cosmetic surgery and offer a wide range of procedures for all Cosmetic conditions.

These procedures include breast reduction, lifting and augmentation (implants) operations. I also perform trunk and limb cosmetic procedures including abdominoplasty (tummy truck), thigh and arm lifting/reduction, and have extensive experience in liposuction and fat transfer/lipomodelling. I am experienced in prominent ear reduction procedures and eyelid/eyebrow corrections.

I am also a core member of the NHS Trust skin cancer multidisciplinary team and have over 15 years experience of managing skin cancer and have developed a large breadth of surgical procedures to deal with patients' with this condition.
