Why Choose a Plastic Surgeon on the GMC Specialist Register
Being a Plastic Surgeon on the GMC specialist register requires substantial surgical training. Mr Karri underwent 6 years of plastic surgery training after 4 years of basic surgical training, plus he spent an additional year obtaining his Masters in Surgical Science.
Although many surgeons perform cosmetic surgery, they may not have had specialised or in-depth training in these techniques. Performing a plastic surgery procedure after a weekend training course is not the same as spending many years training in plastic surgery.
Outcomes from plastic surgery is directly related to surgical volume. A surgeon will get more skilled at an operation the more times they perform it. Mr Karri is a firm believer in this principal, and has chosen to focus on sub-specialties within his practice.
When you are researching possible surgeons, search for someone who has a lot of training and expertise in the surgery you are considering, as well as someone who performs the surgery often.
