About me:

Patient care is the first and foremost priority of Chris and his team. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach and a complete package of care is built on an individual’s unique set of needs and circumstances.

The team prides itself in offering the very best experience in care and its overarching philosophies encompass:

a safe and evidence based approach to the medicine and surgery provided, executed accurately to mitigate against complications with meticulous reflection on results

holistic and honest consultations to enable patients with a better quality of life, long after they have been discharged

providing the right infrastructure and personnel to take care of a patient and fully support them for the duration of their journey

All this is done within the most comfortable of surroundings and with discretion in mind.

Chris is a fully licensed consultant plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgeon with over 20 years’ of highly specialist training completed in London, Los Angeles and Cape Town. Chris is originally from Northumberland and was educated at Cambridge University where he completed his medical training, obtaining degrees in medicine and surgery.

Chris has a fellowship in Plastic Surgery (FRCS) from the Royal College of Surgeons and a higher degree in cosmetic surgery. He is on the General Medical Council’s specialist register for plastic surgery (GMC No 4673028) and extensive training has allowed him membership of the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic surgeons, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, the Royal Society of Medicine, the Royal College of Surgeons of England and the British Burns Association.

Chris’ independent private practice is based in Chelsea. He currently splits his time between his private work, his young family and consulting for the NHS as a consultant plastic surgeon and as the clinical lead for the craniofacial unit at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Chelsea and Westminster Hospital provides specialist services for North West London and Chris is a core member of the North West London Skin Cancer Specialist Multidisciplinary team.
