Practices worked at
I have dedicated my training to achieve a high standard in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery.
I attended QMC (London University) to obtain a First class BSc(Hons) degree in Genetics, then completed my medical degree St Thomas’s and Guys hospitals, London in 1994 followed by a Masters degree at UCL, London. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in plastic surgery, FRCS(Plast), and I am listed on the GMC Specialist Register.
Two fellowships fine-tuned my training: a year at Toronto General/Mount Sinai Hospitals, Canada, specialising in Microsurgery, Breast Reconstruction and Head and Neck Surgery. A second fellowship in cosmetic surgery at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London.
As well as being the Head of Plastic Surgery and Clinical Lead in breast reconstruction at St Bartholomew’s and Royal London Hospitals, my specialist area is in procedures such as breast enlargement/reduction, breast symmetrisation, lipofilling, tummy-tuck, liposuction, body sculpting and corrective surgery after massive weight-loss. All of these I perform in my private and NHS practice.
I also run a clinic for the removal of skin lesions and more information can be found on this website (www.carolinesurgery.co.uk) and a discussion with my secretary, Nicola, 020 87097806.
I have a particular interest in women’s surgery and can dedicate an all women team to your surgical needs.
I have peer-review publications, co-authored book chapters and been invited to lecture at national and international meetings on a variety of topics in aesthetic and plastic surgery. Furthermore, I have raised over £8,000 for charity by taking part in bike races and climbing to the top of Kilimanjaro at 5895 metres. This was a wonderful experience as seen by the photo taken once we reached the top.

I'm 17 years old and was really unhappy as I had lost over 4 stone and the effect had taken a toll on my breasts. Caroline was very friendly and made me feel really comfortable, her team were very friendly and everyone was happy to answer any questions I had. The care that I received was incredible, and I received really great advice for post operative care. I couldn't be happier with the end result.
I recently underwent breast augmentation surgery performed by Caroline Payne. After quite a bit of online research and consultations with numerous plastic surgeons I decided to go ahead with Caroline. She was by far the most efficient and meticulous surgeon that made me feel at ease from start to finish by answering all of my questions and helping me decide which implant size to choose that would look most natural. Surgery went well and I had virtually no pain only discomfort. Caroline has been present throughout and my follow up care has been brilliant. 8 weeks post surgery and I am beyond thrilled with the results. I can't thank Caroline and her amazing team enough for everything. I am so much happier with my body now and have not regretted my decision once.
Caroline is extremely meticulous and precise in her work and her aesthetic judgement is perfect. I am delighted with my breast augmentation results which are extremely natural and perfect for my frame. At 5 weeks post-operation I have a beautiful result and can barely see scars. Throughout the process, Caroline places the highest importance on safety and patient health which of course was my prime concern. Caroline's manner is very calm and reassuring but she is also very transparent and will be completely clear about risks, issues and expected result.
