Richard Young

Consultant Craniofacial, Reconstructive, Plastic and Aesthetic Surgeon

MA, BM, BCh, FRCS, FRCS (Plast)


I studied medicine at Oxford and Cambridge Universities. After qualifying, I returned to teach at Cambridge University and tutor at Downing College before starting my general surgical training at Frenchay Hospital in Bristol.

I completed plastic surgery training in Hong Kong, London and Belgium, working in some of the world’s most renowned hospitals, such as Great Ormond Street, The Royal Marsden and The University Hospital, Gent.

I was awarded the specialist fellowship in Plastic Surgery, FRCS (Plast), in 2007 and gained my Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in 2008 with entry onto the GMC Specialist Plastic Surgery register. The same year I was appointed as a Consultant in the Craniofacial Plastic Surgery Department at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London, where my NHS practice is still based. I am a fully certified cosmetic surgeon with a private practice based at 152 Harley Street in London.
