Opting to have Plastic Surgery is a significant decision for people and Mr Harley adopts a patient focused approach to his practice: “Providing a clear, honest and balanced opinion in a supportive environment is the key to enabling patients to make the best choices about their treatment.”

Oliver Harley is a fully qualified, GMC registered specialist Plastic Surgeon.   He is also a member of The British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS), and The British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH).  Mr Harley specialises both in cosmetic surgery and hand surgery.

After qualifying in medicine in 1998 at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in London he has gained extensive experience in the field of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery since 2002.  Mr Harley completed his higher surgical training at St Thomas’ Hospital (London), St Georges Hospital (London) and Queen Victoria Hospital (East Grinstead) and was awarded FRCS (Plastic Surgery) in 2009. 

He further developed his expertise by undertaking specialist training fellowships in Cosmetic Surgery (at McIndoe Surgical Centre, East Grinstead 2010) and in Hand and Wrist Surgery (at Wrightington Hospital, Lancashire and Erasmus MC University Hospital, Rotterdam 2011-2012).  He has worked as an NHS consultant in plastic surgery in Plymouth, the John Radcliffe and the Nuffield Orthopaedic Hospitals in Oxford, and at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead.   

His passion and interest in Plastic Surgery has led Mr. Harley to regularly organise and partake in teaching for the Royal College of Surgeons Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic course series.  Involvement in clinical research, winning conference prizes for research projects in abdominoplasty and in finger joint replacements, has provided him with a deeper understanding of specialist topics.
