Plastic surgery

Our plastic and reconstructive surgery services are based at Leicester Royal Infirmary and offer a wide range of procedures including cosmetic surgery.

We have a trauma service which deals with accidents and emergencies including the repair of hand injuries and injuries to the skin, flesh and muscle, including burns. Click here to see information about National Burns Awareneess Day.

We remove skin lesions and cancers such as melanoma and reconstruct the defect created in order to produce the most cosmetically pleasing result.

Cosmetic surgery is available under certain circumstances, including correction of bat ears, scar revision, nose work, breast reduction and implant insertion, and tummy-tucks.

You can find accessibility information for Burns Plastic Dressing and Hand Trauma Review Clinics here.
