Plastic Surgery - Philosophy

Throughout my career I have regarded effective communication and compassion as the cornerstones of good medicine. In my practice you will find the emphasis is on providing personalized care tailored to the individual in a safe and professional environment. The most modern surgical advances are incorporated into well established methods including minimal incision or short-scar techniques. 

Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery - Procedures

My experienced team of staff and I provide a full range of cosmetic surgical services, specializing in: breast augmentation, breastlifting (mastopexy) and breast reduction; facial rejuvenation, including endoscopic Brow-lifting, blepharoplasty (eyelids), and facelift and necklift surgery; body contouring surgery by liposculpture, abdominoplasty, thigh and body lifts, including surgery after massive weight loss; corrective nasal reshaping (rhinoplasty); and surgery for prominent ears (otoplasty). This is complemented by skillful use of additional treatments such as fat grafting, skin laser resurfacing, and scar management.

My reconstructive surgical practice focuses on breast reconstruction for women undergoing (or who have had) complete or partial mastectomy, the surgical management of skin cancer and melanoma, as well as scar revision and general reconstructive surgery.


I am New Zealand born and educated having graduated from the Auckland University School of Medicine in 1986. After completing postgraduate plastic surgical training in New Zealand, I was admitted to Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 1993.

A further three years of postgraduate plastic surgery training were spent in the United Kingdom and United States. This included one year in Atlanta, Georgia, at the prestigious Emory University Department of Plastic Surgery, where I studied under the guidance of two of America's leading plastic surgeons.

Since returning to New Zealand in 1996, I have developed and run training courses on endoscopic techniques for plastic surgeons from Australasia and Southeast Asia. Until November 2004 I was also Clinical Tutor in the University of Auckland Department of Surgery; a Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at Middlemore and Kidz First hospitals; and a Visiting Plastic Surgeon to Auckland/North Shore hospitals and Starship Children's Hospital.

My medical writings include chapter contributions to surgical textbooks, numerous articles on cosmetic and reconstructive surgery published in peer-reviewed journals, and I have been an invited guest lecturer at national and international surgical meetings and instructional courses.
