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 had breast augmentation mid September this year. My whole experience from first consultation to 6 week follow up appointment was more than I could have wished for. Caroline and her team are so professional, understanding, caring and made me feel at ease straight away. My whole procedure went smoothly and with great results. I highly recommend Dr Payne without any hesitation.
My experience with Caroline so far has been amazing, she has made me feel very confident and comfortable and can’t wait to have my breast augmentation next year.
Thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Dr Payne. Explained the process and made me feel comfortable talking to her and was able to ask questions. Thank you and will be going with you for surgery 🙏 😊
My consultation was very relaxed and made to feel very comfortable during my consultation. I was given all the information I needed and all questions answered overall very happy.

I felt comfortable from start to finish during the consultation, everything was explained to me, and I feel 100% confident to go through with the Breast reduction.
So far I have only gone for a consultation but I found Dr Caroline Payne very understanding and clear and thorough in her explanation.
Made me feel very welcome and answered all my concerns. Explained to me very well what the surgery would entail and made me feel at ease. Remained professional at all times and I did not feel uncomfortable whilst being examined. Thank you
I visited the Holly Private Hospital for a consultation with Miss Payne on 28/07/2020 having had her recommended to me. She was absolutely wonderful and put me at ease straight away. Everything was explained to me so clearly and this made me feel very confident that I had been sent to the perfect consultant for my needs. I am feeling very positive about the procedure that I am going to have and that I am in safe hands with Miss Payne.
Very personable and efficient
Consultation was really informative and comprehensive. I felt very at ease with the explanation of the procedure and confident in proceeding to surgery.
I went to see Caroline and i was extremely fearful as i have a ruptured implant.She was so very kind and helped me so much. I am an older lady 54, I am not as brave as i was in my 30’s Caroline totally understood this she put my mind at ease. I hope to get my implants changed soon. I never once felt rushed or pressured she totally got my situation thank you Caroline.
Very professional and everything is explained clearly
I felt very comfortable with Caroline. She put my mind at ease regarding my queries. Also verysupported by the information explained to me.
Caroline instantly made me feel at ease, reassured and in safe hands. She has gone above and beyond my expectations in keeping me informed on any information/changes I might need 4 years after my surgery and took her time to check me over again for health purposes. Overall very pleased and would highly recommend her.
Miss Payne always offers the best service. She is thorough, caring and goes the extra mile. She is very considerate and understanding, and always listens.
Thorough and polite. Answered all my questions precisely and made me feel at ease. Looking forward to booking my surgery date.
Caroline was the most amazing doctor to have carry out my surgery. She was polite, friendly, reassuring and explained every stage of my procedure with clarity and positivity. I felt extremely relaxed and content both before and during my procedure, in the full belief that I was in safe hands. I am delighted with the outcome from my procedure and am extremely fortunate and thankful to have had Caroline as my surgeon.
Caroline was welcoming, friendly and funny. She explained everything in detail and was very delicate and professional during the procedure and I felt in safe hands. Couldn't be happier the operation and it's looking great in terms of scarring. Thanks!
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.
