Our Operating Surgeons
We have taken the hard work out of looking for the best breast surgeon or other top specialist plastic surgeons. We have selected a group of nationally and internationally recognised experts in cosmetic plastic surgery, with specialist interest in aesthetic surgery of the breast. All of our consultant plastic surgeons and breast surgeons have impressive qualifications and considerable experience as cosmetic plastic surgeons.
All our surgeons and breast surgeons are members of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and/or the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS). These are the two organisations in the UK recognised by the Department of Health and the Royal College of Surgeons for the regulation of plastic surgery standards.
Our surgeons are all on the General Medical Council (GMC) specialist register for plastic surgery and all have a UK certificate of training (CCT) in plastic surgery, with a specialty fellowship in Plastic Surgery FRCS(Plast).
Our founding partners Mr Simon Withey operating in London and President of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and Norman Waterhouse operating at our Surrey Hospital and Former President of BAAPS are part of our expert team of operating surgeons.

The surgeon you meet will be the surgeon who performs your cosmetic plastic surgery. They will see you for all your appointments leading up to surgery as well as the check-ups afterwards. You will build a relationship with just one person, who will understand your specific needs and case history. They will be there as your source of expertise through the entire journey. Just to reassure you, you will not be charged another fee for repeat consultations.
What should I look for in a cosmetic plastic surgeon?
The most important factor in the success of your surgery is the surgeon who performs your operation.
When choosing a surgeon the first things to consider are training, experience and qualifications.
Each of our consultant surgeons has dedicated at least 15 years training to achieve their present level of expertise. It will take you 15 seconds to check their credentials through the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (www.baaps.org) or the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (www.bapras.org).
All surgeons at MyBreast have the qualification FRCS(Plas) – the highest qualification in plastic surgery in the UK – and are BAAPS and/or BAPRAS members.
Don’t be confused by websites that fail to give you full details of their surgeons’ qualifications and professional memberships. Be discerning. Ask for your allocated surgeon’s CV and check their qualifications through BAAPS and/or BAPRAS.
To ensure you are putting your body in safe hands, it’s essential to do your research.
