Mr Harris’ educational background and international training have provided a solid base for him to develop an acknowledged expertise in the field Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
Mr Harris graduated from The University of London in 1991 to embark upon his surgical career. After four years of training in general surgery at a number of London teaching hospitals, he became a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (FRCS). He then undertook eight years of training in plastic surgery in London as well as periods spent at specialist centres in Australia and Belgium. In 2002, he gained the Specialist Fellowship in Plastic Surgery (FRCS Plast) and was entered on the GMC Specialist Register for plastic surgery in 2004.
In 1999, Mr Harris was awarded the higher post-graduate degree of Doctorate in Medicine (MD) having spent two years at the Restoration of Appearance and Function Trust (RAFT) developing a laboratory produced artificial skin replacement. This research was sponsored by The Royal College of Surgeons of England. Throughout his career, Mr Harris has continued to publish his work within the plastic surgery and scientific literature, and present nationally and internationally at plastic surgery conferences. He is actively involved in teaching at postgraduate level and has lectured at the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) instructional meetings.
Following the completion of his surgical training in England, Mr Harris was awarded a travelling fellowship by the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) to study with one of the world’s leading authorities in cosmetic surgery in Melbourne, Australia. Since then, he has continued to develop his skills in cosmetic surgery as a consultant and now regularly teaches junior plastic surgeons. His main interests are breast surgery, body contouring, and facial surgery.
In 2004, Mr Harris was appointed as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at The Royal Marsden Hospital in London where he specialised in reconstructive surgery following ablative cancer excision. He left the NHS in 2018 to devote his efforts to full-time private practice. He currently operates in Central London at The London Clinic, in Southwest London at Wimbledon Parkside Hospital and in Surrey at Spire Clare Park Hospital, Farnham. He is a member of the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS), the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS). He is currently the President of BAAPS and has worked within Council for almost 10 years. He comments regularly in the media on topical plastic surgery issues and has also been featured in several television documentaries.

In line with Government and Public Health England advice on the ‘stay alert’ policy and ‘social distancing’ that continues to be in place, Mr Harris has limited capacity for all out-patient clinics until the end of October. However, we are currently open and have restarted surgery with new precautions in place to ensure patient safety from COVID-19.
