Ciaran Healy

Consultant plastic surgeon


Mr Healy commenced his post as a consultant plastic and reconstructive surgeon at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, London in 1996.

His medical training began at Trinity College Dublin School of Medicine, where he graduated in 1981. He went on to commence postgraduate training in plastic and reconstructive surgery the South Wales Regional Burns and Plastics Unit and progressed through similar specialist units in Frenchay Hospital Bristol, Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood, Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, University College Hospital London, The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore and Great Ormond Street Hospital. 

Whilst contributing to the successful growth of this plastic surgery department, currently employing 28 consultant surgeons, he embraced the opportunity to develop a super-specialist interest. This involves reconstruction of nasal defects arising from complex skin cancer excision by the MOHS dermatological surgical team, whom he works very closely with. He also worked to establish NHS MDTs for melanoma and complex skin cancer to optimise patient care and outcomes.

He is at the forefront of innovation in this area and recently published in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Journal (PRS) describing the development of his technique of venous augmentation in forehead flap nasal reconstruction cases following MOHS surgery, described in 320 cases with three flap losses.
