I am a Consultant Plastic Surgeon with private clinics in East Grinstead, Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone, Dartford and Harley Street, London. I specialise in breast surgery, both cosmetic and reconstructive, facial cosmetic surgery, fillers, facial peel and Botox, body contouring by abdominoplasty and liposuction, and the management of skin malignancies.
I retired from the NHS in September 2012 having been a senior member of the Regional Plastic Surgery Centre at the Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead made famous in the War by the work of Sir Archibald McIndoe.
My training in the famous Canniesburn Unit in Glasgow has prepared me for work in the area of facial surgery, both cosmetic and reconstructive. I undertake the full range of rejuvenative procedures, managing the eyelids, nose and face with surgical and non-surgical techniques. I work closely with both ENT and oculoplastic colleagues in the management of complex problems, both when they arise from reconstruction after cancer or trauma, and where secondary cosmetic surgery demands difficult solutions. I have experience in face and browlift surgery, giving the judgement born of experience in the assessment of these cases.
During my time as a longstanding member of the staff at the NHS training centre at the Queen Victoria Hospital, I taught many surgeons in techniques of facial cosmetics and reconstruction, some of which have become colleagues when they have joined me as consultants in their own right.
Surgery for augmentation, uplift or reduction of the breast demands the highest levels of experience and competence. I have been dealing with these problems over my twenty years of practice and can offer a depth of experience gained in that time. I have seen trends and fashions come and go during that time and am well placed to offer considered judgements, tailored to the specific needs of each of my patients as an individual.
The reconstructive patients pose different problems and both the younger ones with congenital problems, including asymmetries, and the older patients following treatment for cancers require careful, sensitive and competent management. I work closely with several oncological breast surgeons as an integral member of the cancer management team.
In more recent years, with the rise in the demand for surgery managing the sequelae of obesity, I have become more involved in body contour procedures, especially those following bariatric surgery, e.g. gastric banding. Patients requiring abdominoplasty have always been a feature in my practice but they have now been joined by those requiring management of loose skin about the arms, legs and buttocks as well as a steady demand for liposuction to reduce and contour specific body areas.
