About Mr Chris Cartlidge

Breast augmentation, breast implants, breast reduction and breast uplift at our Edinburgh and Stirling clinics, Scotland. Safe and careful cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery. I am a consultant oncoplastic and cosmetic breast surgeon working in NHS Fife, NHS Forth Valley and in private practice. I am on the GMC specialist register and have been a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in general and breast surgery since 2018. I completed a National Oncoplastic Fellowship at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield.

I perform surgery for breast cancer, risk-reduction and benign breast disease and specialise in breast reconstruction, including implant reconstruction, pedicled flap (LD) and fat transfer. I also undertake procedures for correcting asymmetry following breast cancer treatment, revisional breast surgery, salvage of breasts following surgical complications, and cosmetic breast surgery. I have trained in chest wall reconstruction for gender reassignment.

I care a great deal about my patients: getting you the right treatment and giving you a result that you are happy with. I work closely with my colleagues in radiology, pathology and oncology to make decisions about management, and with my team of nurses and allied professionals in theatre and the outpatient clinic to give you the best care we can. I will always be guided by your ideas, concerns and hopes and I aim to be approachable and available to answer your questions.

I studied at Edinburgh University, graduating with a first class BSc (Hons) in Experimental Pathology in 2003 and MB ChB (Hons) in 2006, winning the gold medals in both Surgery and Medicine. I continued my surgical training in south east Scotland including almost 3 years working under Prof Mike Dixon OBE at the Edinburgh Breast Unit.

I'm extremely happy with my decision

I’ve found a new confidence in myself and in the clothes I wear now

5 50 Breast Reduction

I am so delighted with my new boobs! I’m over 8 weeks post breast reduction op and the healing process couldn’t have gone any better so far. I liked Chris as soon as I met him. He was friendly, approachable and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. Chris also responded so quickly to any questions I had via email!

I’ve found a new confidence in myself and in the clothes I wear now, which was one of my main aims of having this surgery.

This surgery was worth every penny and I thank Chris from the bottom of my heart for doing such a great job and giving me a new lease of life!

The results from the procedure far exceeded any expectations that I had

5 50 Breast Implants • Paid: £5200

Over a period of 15 years, I had seen several consultants for Breast Augmentation, however, due to anxiety about the procedure, I never felt confident with going ahead.

When I met with Chris at Dr Nestors the confidence that he gave me in himself and the procedures that he had previously performed then gave me the confidence to then go ahead.

Chris was extremely patient with me and answered all my questions regarding the procedure prior, I cannot recommend Dr Cartlidge enough the results from the procedure far exceeded any expectations that I had.

I felt confident that with his experience I would be in safe hands

5 50 Breast Implant Revision • Paid: £5253

It can be a daunting task finding the right surgeon for your treatment. However, I can wholeheartedly endorse Chris Cartlidge who was professional and caring. He took the time to fully explain the options available to me and was happy to answer my questions in the weeks leading up to the operation. I felt confident that with his experience I would be in safe hands and I am delighted with the end result.
