About Real Plastic Surgery

Naveen Cavale is a fully accredited UK Plastic Surgeon (on the UK Specialist Register, or equivalent to USA Board Certified) who trained and qualified in London. He has an NHS Plastic & Reconstructive practice in King's College Hospital, London as well as a Private Plastic, Reconstructive & Cosmetic Surgery practice in central London.

Nav puts patients first, with emphasis being on safety. He is keen to put you at ease and will never 'sell' surgery to you. He never rushes consultations and you will only ever be offered a procedure that is wholly appropriate for you.

Mr. Cavale prefers and encourages natural results as he believes these are both longer lasting, and safer. He is on the GMC Specialist Register for Plastic Surgery, and is a full member of BAPRAS, BAAPS and ISAPS. He is fully insured via a UK-based indemnity company, specialising in plastic surgeons.

As the company name suggests, he is passionate that cosmetic surgery patients see a 'Real' surgeon i.e. one that is properly trained and qualified, not only in carrying out your procedure, but also able to properly deal with any situation arising after surgery (expected or unexpected).

If he cannot deal with the issue himself, and you require another specialist, he will gladly refer you on to one of his large network of similarly highly qualified colleagues - this is one of the great advantages of working in the NHS.

Please see his work for yourself. Read his reviews and look at 

before and after photographs on his RealSelf page.

He has recently taken his reconstructive skills to other parts of the world where they are desperately needed - the work has been featured on BBC World, in the UK press, in The Mirror and The Guardian, as well as the UK Government's DfID website

Training the next generation of plastic surgeons is hugely important and Naveen has set up the world's most popular knowledge-sharing website for trainee plastic surgeons, to help them prepare for their pre-consultant exams.

He enjoys tinkering with gadgetry - this inspired the research for his MSc degree and he has presented and published extensively in the international plastic surgery literature.

He thinks of himself as a bit of a geek and can be found tweeting @plasreconsurg

Naveen is married with two children, and lives in South London.
