Baljit is a UK trained Consultant Plastic Surgeon having graduated from Kings College Hospital where he qualified in 1990. This was the start of a rich and varied career in the fields of plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery

Having spent 22 years performing surgery, 14 of those as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Baljit’s extensive knowledge stems from his work carried out in a number of prestigious plastic surgery units. These include: Queen Mary’s, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Roehampton, St Andrew's Centre for Plastic Surgery and Chelmsford. During this time he also conducted research at the Phoenix Tissue Repair Unit at University College London.

In his private practice Baljit covers all areas of cosmetic surgery including breast surgery, facial surgery, body contour surgery, liposuction and abdominoplasty. Mr Dheansa enjoys every aspect of plastic surgery; last year he performed approximately 260 procedures both in his NHS and private work which is a testament to both his passion and skill.

As well as working at The McIndoe Centre, Baljit works at the world-renowned Queen Victoria Hospital, just opposite McIndoe. Here he is the Lead Clinician for Burns and is responsible for co-ordinating the multi-disciplinary team that looks after all burns patients. Along with his colleagues, Adam Blackburn, Tania Cubison and Nora Nugent he manages all acute burn injuries as well as the reconstruction of burns patients after they have healed.

As well as being highly experienced, Baljit is very widely published. His portfolio is extensive having published in both clinical and scientific journals on areas of translational science, burns, plastic and cosmetic surgery. On top of this, Baljit takes an active role in the training of plastic surgeons and works hard to develop their skills. He is currently an examiner for the FRCS (Plast) exam.
