Mrs Effie Katerinaki

Personal profile

Effie Katerinaki is a Consultant Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon. She graduated from the University of Patras, Greece and undertook her general surgical and advanced Plastic Surgery training in the UK.

In 2011 she was appointed to her first NHS Consultant post in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. She moved to City Hospital, Birmingham in 2012 where she was appointed as a full time Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon with a specialist interest in breast reconstruction.

Prior to starting her higher training in Plastic Surgery Mrs Katerinaki completed a three year clinical research fellowship on malignant melanoma at the University of Sheffield which led to her PhD degree being awarded in 2004. She undertook a six year specialist training programme in Plastic Surgery at South Manchester University Hospital and the Christie Hospital, the largest cancer centre in Europe, acquiring skills in breast and skin cancer reconstructive surgery.

Mrs Katerinaki completed a 12 month specialist breast reconstruction fellowship at City Hospital, Birmingham and subsequently spent a further six months on a prestigious fellowship on microsurgical reconstruction of the breast at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, Canada, one of the largest centres for microsurgery in North America.

In July 2017 she left the NHS and now offers plastic reconstructive and aesthetic surgery procedures in the private sector, aiming to continue providing the highest quality, safe surgical care with an individualised approach to her patients’ needs and expectations. She specialises in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the breast and body including breast uplift surgery, breast reduction, breast augmentation, breast reconstruction surgery, male breast reduction (surgery for gynaecomastia), fat transfer, abdominoplasty and body contouring procedures. She also performs ear plastic surgery including ear pinning, split ear lobe correction, as well as liposuction procedures including thigh liposuction, fat transfer, tummy liposuction, thigh and buttock lifts, scar revision, as well as mole, skin tag and cyst removal.

It is Mrs Katerinaki's usual practice to offer everyone who consults with her the opportunity to book a second consultation free of charge, prior to booking a date for their procedure, so that they have enough time to consider everything that has been discussed and ask any questions they may have.
