My practice covers cosmetic, hand and reconstructive plastic surgery. I treat adults and children. I aim to provide an individually tailored, comprehensive approach to your assessment and treatment. Attention to detail and a professional, caring approach are the cornerstones of my practice. I will help you to make a fully informed decision about your treatment in a non pressurised setting.

As a female plastic surgeon, I encourage and help my patients to achieve a fresh, natural look. I offer an honest opinion and will discuss all your options with you including realistic expectations of the outcome and the recovery process afterwards.
