Personal profile

Mr Anil Agarwal completed a Plastic Surgery training programme at PGI Chandigarh, India, followed by a 2-year Hand Fellowship. Armed with sound basic principles but a view to obtaining outstanding practical results, he trained further at the best Units all over the UK. These included Breast surgery at Manchester, and Hand Surgery at Chelmsford and East Grinstead.

During this quest for excellence he published extensively, completed the FRCS (Glasgow), the FRCS (Plast) and 2 Diplomas (British and European) in Hand Surgery. He has been an NHS Consultant Plastic Surgeon since 2008 and currently practices at the Royal Preston Hospital. He loves drawing and regards Aesthetic Surgery as living sculpture.

Mr Agarwal strongly believes in clearly defining the problem and visualising the ideal solution. He provides an initial detailed consultation, listening carefully to the patient’s viewpoint, and will then explain what can and cannot be achieved using today’s state of the art. He employs hand sketches, photographs and computer-art until the end result can be clearly seen and agreed upon by both patient and surgeon. He believes his results should speak for themselves and takes pride in complete patient satisfaction.
