An Introduction To My Surgical Philosophy

One of the greatest joys in being a plastic surgeon, and perhaps one of the main driving factors for many of us going into the specialty, is the fact that our work is so varied. One day, I can be rebuilding a patient’s breast after cancer has necessitated a mastectomy. The next day it might be helping someone to feel better by re-shaping their tummy, and the day after that, it might be fixing the cut nerves and tendons in someone’s hand. Each of these surgical problems requires a different part of the set of skills built up over years of training, and each case is always different, requiring technical expertise, and often an element of artistic creativity.

Whether it is a restoration of form or function, or most frequently both, for me the essence of plastic surgery is to help my patients reinvigorate their confidence.



Mr Ahmed is a Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon with a private practice divided between Pinehill Hospital in Hitchin, and One Hatfield Hospital. This is in addition to a busy NHS practice working out of The Lister Hospital, in Stevenage.

Having completed his undergraduate training at Imperial College London, Mr Ahmed continued his surgical education by accepting a teaching post at the Anatomy Department, at the University of Oxford. He was then appointed onto the prestigious Oxford and Wessex Plastic Surgery Higher Surgical Training Programme, working in Salisbury, Portsmouth, Oxford and Stoke Mandeville and also completing a part-time Masters in Surgical Technology during this time.

Mr Ahmed gained his FRCS(Plast) exam in March 2015, before undertaking further specialist training in the form of microsurgical and aesthetic fellowships in London. He was admitted onto the Specialist Register for plastic surgery in October 2016 (which is the equivalent to the American “Board Certification”) .

Mr Ahmed has expertise in the range of surgical techniques plastic surgery encompasses, with specialist interests in breast, facial soft-tissue reconstruction and body contouring procedures. He prides himself on being an innovative surgeon, and has attended international training programmes in order to be able to offer expertise in a range of cutting edge plastic and cosmetic surgery treatments.

Outside of medicine, he is a fan of live stand-up comedy, a keen quizzer and a football fan.
