Mr Ciaran Healy

Consultan Plastic Surgeon at the Wellington Hospital

Upon graduating from Trinity College Dublin medical school in 1981

Mr Healy gained experience in a range of surgical specialties prior to commencing training as a Plastic Surgeon. After initially working in Burns and Plastic Surgery Units in South Wales, Bristol and London, he spent two years in full time research into nerve injuries at the Middlesex Hospital Institute of Neurological Studies. This led to a prize winning project for which Mr Healy was awarded a Medical Doctorate.

Recommencing Plastic Surgical training at Addenbrooke's Hospital, he was appointed as a Tutor in Anatomy at Gonville and Caius College Cambridge. Mr Healy completed his training across London hospitals including Mount Vernon, UCLH, Great Ormond Street, The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore and The Hand Clinic at Windsor.

Since joining St Thomas' Hospital in 1996 as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Mr Healy has continued his professional training by attending meetings and courses and visiting other specialists in their units at home and abroad.

Mr Healy's current practice at the Wellington Hospital includes Cosmetic Surgery of the nose (rhinoplasty) and face (endoscopic brow lift, Coleman fat injection to the cheek and lips, face and neck lift etc) breast (enlargement and reduction), tummy tuck, lipo-suction and post obesity correction.

As Plastic Surgeon to the Melanoma and Facial Skin Cancer teams at St Thomas' Hospital, Mr Healy uses Cosmetic surgery techniques while repairing the damage caused by cancer, particularly to the nose and face.

Mr Healy's interest in peripheral nerve injury continues as he runs hand surgery clinics at both the Wellington and St Thomas's Hospitals. Mr Healy performs carpal tunnel decompressions, Dupuytrens contracture release and general hand surgery procedures. Mr Healy's second decade in consultant practice has been enlivened by his role as Royal College of Surgeons Plastic Surgery Tutor. This involves working with his colleagues throughout the country in the development and delivery of higher surgical training in plastic surgery, ensuring that the next generation will have the knowledge and skills to deliver safe, expert cosmetic and plastic surgery care.
