MB BS, MB BCh or MB ChB is the basic medical degree of any doctor. Your plastic ‘surgeon’ should at least be a ‘surgeon’. Doctors who receive adequate ‘basic’ surgical training in the UK are awarded Fellowship (FRCSI, FRCS, FRCS Ed, FRCS Gl – in the older generation of surgeons) or Membership (MRCS – in the younger generation of surgeons) of the Royal Colleges in the UK. Doctors or Surgeons, who believe in having a scientific foundation to their practice, spend further years doing research in their fields and are awarded Research degrees such as MSc, MMedSc, MPhil, MD or PhD. Surgeons who ‘train specifically in the field of Plastic surgery’ are awarded FRCS (Plast). These surgeons are then entitled to be on the “Specialist register for Plastic Surgery” with the General Medical Council (GMC).
‘Safe’ and ‘beautiful’ results are dependent on ‘experience’ and ‘expertise’ of your plastic surgeon. Professor Mahajan is a highly trained and experienced plastic surgeon who is a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at the Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and is the Professor of Plastic Surgery and the Director of Research at the prestigious Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit (PSBRU) at the University of Bradford. He has a specialist interest in Breast surgery having worked in world-renowned centres for breast surgery in Belgium, Sweden and Switzerland in addition to his training in the UK. He is a full member of the British Association of Plastic Surgeons (BAPRAS), British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), UK Association of Plastic Surgeons (UKAAPS), European Association of Plastic Surgeons (EURAPS), American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Association of Breast Surgeons (ABS) and is on the Specialist register for plastic surgery with the General Medical Council (GMC). Surgeons are only awarded membership of these associations if they are adequately qualified and it is a reassurance for you that you are in safe hands. In addition to this, it obviously helps if your surgeon has travelled the world to enhance his training in premier institutes to learn from leading surgeons in their fields. It also helps if your surgeon believes in practicing “evidence based medicine” by engaging in research activities to help establish a scientific background to his / her clinical practice.
