Andrew Davidson - Plastic Surgeon

Private Service, Plastic Surgery


8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.


I am a plastic and reconstructive surgeon with particular interest in the following areas:
  • Breast reconstruction: Microsurgical (Abdominal and thigh based tissue transfer); Implant based reconstruction; Composite reconstruction (Implant and your own tissue); Fat grafting; Breast reduction
  • Hand surgery: Elective and traumatic/ACC surgery including: Dupuytren's, nerve entrapments, carpal tunnel, thumb arthritis, stenosing tenosynovitis, trigger digits, post trauma reconstruction
  • Head and neck surgery: Complex skin cancer of the head and neck; neck dissection; parotidectomy; collaborative work with ENT/Head and Neck surgeons
  • Skin cancer surgery: Melanoma surgery including sentinel node biopsy and lymph gland dissection; Non-melanoma skin cancer
  • Microsurgical reconstruction: Breast, head and neck, sarcoma, hand and lower-limb trauma
  • Lymphoedema surgery: Lymphatico-venous anastomoses (service under development); Liposuction
  • Paediatric plastic surgery: Prominent ears, trigger digits, skin lesions etc


I have a busy public practice focussed on microsurgical reconstruction and the raison d'être of my practice in the private sector is to provide high quality rather than high quantity care. In my specialist practice areas I can offer a full breadth of options for plastic and reconstructive problems.
