I would normally advise patients to see their GP. They will be able to summarise your past medical history in a letter, but this is not essential and you can refer yourself or the referral can come from another specialist.

In accordance with the National Care Standards it is the surgeon's duty to provide the best advice to patients even when this may be unwelcome. In some circumstances there may be physical or psychological conditions which mean that plastic surgery is not suitable for you.

I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, a member of the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS), a full member of The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and the British Society for surgery of the Hand (BSSH). I follow the regulations of these societies and guidelines set by GMC.

This allows a full impartial discussion about all available treatment options. This ensures that the advice carries no financial pressures, such as discounts if you proceed to surgery. This is also inline with best medical practice published by the GMC.

I perform most cosmetic procedures in the clinic or in theatre; I also perform hand surgery and skin cancer surgery as well as removal of lumps and bumps anywhere on the body. For a guide to procedures click the link Procedures.

Treatments prices depend on the procedure, individual circumstances, the hospital where the surgery is done and the length of stay. Guidelines will usually be given on the hospital website or by phoning the hospital or my secretary if you are a self pay patient.

Recovery will depend on the type of treatment, so please click the link to Treatments.

It would take place at one of the 3 hospitals, Spire St Anthony's, Parkside, or The Lister.

This will depend on the type of surgery, but usually within 1-2 months of the initial consultation. A date and time will be arranged through my Secretary which is mutually agreeable.

Appointments can be made through Jan Richards, my PA 07722 841 078 or any of the 3 hospitals. St Anthony’s Hospital – Monday 10.30am—4pm Telephone: 0208 335 4500 Parkside – Tuesday 2 –5.00pm Telephone: 0208 971 8000 The Lister Hospital -Thursday 9-12pm Telephone: 020 7730 3417
