Tel No.:
What procedure are you interested in having?

The practice of plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery is challenging, requiring a creative, sophisticated and unique approach for each patient.

We aim to provide the best surgical and non-surgical treatments for rejuvenation and restoration, so that you can have the best possible environment in which to attain your goals.

No two persons are the same: each patient therefore needs an individualised, bespoke treatment plan. By the same token, your surgeon needs to be able to offer a range of procedures and treatments so that your treatment is the most appropriate. We will therefore work with you in order to best define your aims, and counsel you in detail on the most appropriate approach for your condition, given the relative risks and benefits of each option.

We will not recommend surgery you do not need, nor suggest treatments that we feel are unsafe or unproven.

Are looks really that important?

Our culture and expectations are changing. Today there are pressures on people to look younger and fresher. There are societal expectations about each person?s appearance, peer-pressure and ?rules? about how we should age, and about ?fitting in?

Why focus on appearance?

It is not part of our philosophy to encourage a heavy focus on appearance, but rather to offer a balanced approach to rejuvenation. We are all aware that it is the person ?inside? which is the real you.

What can you do for me?

We therefore aim to improve those aspects, age-related or otherwise, which may help improve your quality of life by their effect on your social and psychological well-being, in your relationships both personal and professional.

He is a member of the British Medical Association, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons and the British Association of Plastic Surgeons (now the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons).

Dr. Yap graduated with honours MB BCh BAO from the National University of Ireland in Dublin, 1991. He completed his basic surgical training in Ireland and Hong Kong, becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 1995. He subsequently specialised in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, gaining the UK Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training in Plastic Surgery (Intercollegiate) in 2003. He is a recipient of the British Journal of Plastic Surgery Prize, the Ethicon Foundation Fund Scholarship and the British Association of Plastic Surgeons Travelling Bursary.

The path to becoming a plastic and reconstructive surgeon involves many years of training in a multitude of fields. In the United Kingdom, most surgical trainees begin their professional career after six years of undergraduate medical school.This is followed by a year as an Intern (house officer).

Four years of successful postgraduate training in General Surgery are then necessary before the trainee can present for the Fellowship Examination in Surgery. This requires satisfactory completion of a written examination, clinical examination in two parts, following which the general Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS England, FRCS Glasgow, FRCS Edinburgh or FRCS Ireland) is conferred.

The consultation is an important part of your treatment. It is important that you meet with your surgeon and that you feel you can trust him, before deciding to proceed with surgery.

A detailed medical history including your concerns, expectations and aims for surgery, as well as your allergies, previous health problems, and medications is taken. A careful clinical examination and evaluation is then carried out. Please feel free to raise any concerns you may have at this stage.

As Plastic Surgeons, we aim to help patients by bringing someone who has sustained an injury, physical harm, deformation or loss of function of a body part, back on the path to recovery. Thus in the reconstructive arena Plastic Surgeons have led the way in cleft lip and palate corrections, tissue transfers, treatment of burns and cancer defects, management of facial injuries.

These detailed and sophisticated techniques can also be applied to the correction of one's appearance and to reduce the effects of the ageing process.

In the minds of the public, the term "plastic" is closely linked to aesthetic and cosmetic surgery. For this reason, there are now surgeons who, while not fully trained as plastic surgeons, have included the word "plastic" in their titles.

Accredited plastic surgeons are those who have completed supervised, recognized training in designated training centres across the UK. They will have passed the exit examination ? FRCS (Plastic Surgery), or FRCS (Plast) ? in addition to their basic surgical qualification, the FRCS or Fellowship of one of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons. They should also be listed on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council.

If you are searching for a Plastic Surgeon, they should be full members of the British Association of Plastic Surgeons (now the British Association of Plastic, Aesthetic or Reconstructive Surgeons) or full members of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. For a Plastic Surgeon to obtain full membership of BAPRAS, they have to be , or have been, appointed as Consultant Plastic Surgeon at one of the National Health Service (NHS) Plastic Surgery Units in the UK or Ireland.
