I have been a Consultant Plastic Surgeon for over 10 years. I specialise in cosmetic surgery of the breast and abdomen. I perform breast enlargement, uplift surgery (mastopexy) and a number of different breast reduction procedures including vertical scar techniques. I treat patients with breast asymmetry and those who require uplift surgery (mastopexy) and augmentation. I regularly perform abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), including mini-abdominoplasty and techniques following massive weight loss. I also offer body contouring procedures such as arm reduction. In addition to these cosmetic procedures, I regularly remove skin lesions, moles, cysts and lipomas as well as performing scar revision surgery and treating keloid scars. In terms of facial plastic surgery, I perform blepharoplasty (a procedure to reduce excess skin on upper or lower eyelids), skin growth removal and ear correction, including split earlobes. I also carry out anti-wrinkle non-surgical injection techniques.
I have received rigorous, structured training in plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery in the well-respected West Midlands training programme and was awarded the coveted McGregor medal for obtaining the highest mark in the Royal College of Surgeons Plastic Surgery examinations.
I pride myself on my communication skills and enjoy involving patients in decision-making so treatment plans are tailored to their physical and social needs.
I have a proven research track record with a Master of Philosophy degree in Surgery and over 20 peer-reviewed publications in Plastic Surgery. I have delivered numerous papers and lectures at national meetings and published articles within the fields of breast reconstruction, hand surgery, burns and facial reconstruction. I also train plastic surgery doctors of the future and I am an Royal College of Surgeons Assessor sitting on interview panels for consultant plastic surgeon appointments around the country.
I am an approachable doctor who takes pride in my communication skills with patients. I am keen to ensure that patients are fully informed and involved in decision-making at all times.
