Mr. Adrian Richards
Prior to working at The Private Clinic I worked extensively for Stoke Mandeville NHS Trust as Consultant Plastic Surgeon.
I have gratefully received many accolades such as ‘Home Counties Leading Plastic Surgeon’ (The Daily Mail) and ‘Leading UK Breast Surgeon’ (The Independent on Sunday). I have also written widely on the subject including the best-selling book ‘Keynotes on Plastic Surgery’.
Being able to offer unparalleled treatment and service is at the heart of what I set out to do. This includes working closely with my industry peers in order to understand the latest techniques and to improve the surgery I am able to offer my patients.
I founded Cosmetic Courses (of which I am now Clinical Director) to offer those wishing to enter the aesthetic industry training, guidance and support. Cosmetic Courses led an investigation in to the use of Botox for cosmetic purposes and my commitment to providing excellent cosmetic care led to me being named The Evening Standard’s ‘The Botox Expert’ as part of their Harley Street Heroes series.
I have also established The Cosmetic Centre offering skin treatments and minor operations such as inverted nipple correction, nipple reductions, tribal earlobe repair, split earlobe repair and mole removals.
I live in the Oxfordshire countryside with my wife and four children. When I am not working or spending time with my family, I enjoy running marathons, playing squash, making my own films or playing bass guitar in a local band
Choosing your surgeon
It is very important to do thorough research before choosing your surgeon. All doctors registered in the UK should be listed by the General Medical Council www.gmc-uk.org/register. Surgeons who have been trained in Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery and have passed the necessary examinations are listed as having Specialist Registration in Plastic Surgery. All Surgeons performing Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery in the UK should have Specialist Registration.
There are a number of organisations regulating the quality of Plastic and Cosmetic surgery in the UK. These include The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons www.baaps.org.uk, and the International society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons www.isaps.org.
I am a member of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), as well as the General Medical Council (membership no. 3286812).
