Mr David Thomas Gault

Personal profile

"Gault is a whizz with ears - he can make them smaller or bigger, change their shape and repair lobes ravaged by jewellery".

Mr David Gault was Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Mount Vernon Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital and Honorary Senior Lecturer at University College, London until his retirement from the NHS in 2006. He trained in Plastic Surgery at St. Thomas Hospital and The Royal Marsden Hospital, London and gained further experience in Paris, California and Tokyo.

He undertakes a wide variety of aesthetic and reconstructive surgery for both children and adults. About one third of procedures are for skin blemishes and cancers, one third are purely cosmetic and one third are reconstructive - often to replace a missing ear. He is an international authority on laser treatment and the correction of ear deformity, author of over 180 academic papers, an expert witness in medicolegal cases, and a Visiting Professor.
