Consultant Plastic Surgeon
“Ever since 3rd year in medical school, cosmetic surgery is all I’ve ever wanted to do. I enjoy the patients and the ability to change their lives for the better is very humbling. There is no better feeling than seeing the reaction on someone’s face post-surgery when they see that you’ve fixed or improved upon something that they have been very insecure about. It’s not life saving surgery but it is life changing, something that most people don’t realize. Cosmetic surgery is not all about vanity and looking like the Kardashians – it’s about normal people wanting something they don’t like about their appearance changed – such as getting their heavy breasts reduced in size or excess overhanging tummy tissue removed. It really is not all glamour and beauty. It’s everyday people wanting things done to improve their self confidence. For every single case I do, I’m constantly looking for perfection. It’s not attainable but I’m always striving for it. I want each procedure to be better than the last one.”
