Body shape is governed by the underlying muscular structure, fat and breast tissue as well as the skin itself. These four areas change with age, levels of physical activity and life changing events such as child birth or weight loss. Sometimes a person is simply born with a body imbalance and this affects self confidence and in some cases hinders day to day activities. For some people, body contouring surgery is about fine tuning appearance and is more cosmetic than functional.

Surgery aims to reduce excess skin, reshape areas of the body or enhance their appearance. Body contouring surgery has its roots in reconstructive surgery, but applying cosmetic principles allows the achievement of powerful results.

He has a wealth of experience, having trained in many of London’s specialist units, completed a diploma in aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery, specialist training and a further cosmetic fellowship at the HCA Wellington Hospital. Chris currently works within a bariatric and colo-plastics multidisciplinary team in the NHS, which ideally positions him in the area of body contouring, abdominal wall reconstruction and cosmetic surgery. This work forms a significant part of his daily work in the NHS and he has helped treat over 100 such plastic surgery cases. Some examples of the results achieved can be viewed in the gallery.
