About

Dr Greg Williams is a highly qualified plastic surgeon with an exceptional degree of training, currently working on Harley Street in London. He initially trained as a General Surgeon, obtaining fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons, and then as a Plastic Surgeon in London. Following this, he worked in several teaching hospitals in London before being awarded the Fellowship in Plastic Surgery (FRCS Plast) by the Royal College of Surgeons.

Dr Willliams developed an interest in hair restoration surgery when treating patients in the NHS with severe burns and post traumatic or post surgical hair loss. He gained early experience in hair transplant techniques in Brazil and Toronto, before spending almost a decade doing transplants in both the NHS and in the private sector.  

Before joining the Farjo Hair Institute in 2012, Dr Williams was the Senior Consultant Burn Surgeon at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, which is the only NHS specialist Burn Centre in London. He was also the Clinical Director of the London and South East of England Burn Care Network and the Chair. Dr Williams has co-authored the UK national documents for Burn Major Incidents, Burn Advice to National Trauma Networks and Thresholds for Admission to Burn Services. 

Dr Williams has been the President of the British Association of Hair Restoration Surgery (BAHRS) and on its behalf, advised the UK Department of Health on matters to do with hair transplant surgery such as the Health Education England review of the training requirements for cosmetic procedures. He also advised the British Standards Institute on the development of the European Standard for Aesthetic Medicine: Non-Surgical Medical Procedures.

Dr Williams is involved in the education of doctors learning about Hair Transplant Surgery, regularly lectures at aesthetic conferences, is part of the faculty at University College London's Plastic Surgery MSc program, and participates in hair related research.

He was awarded the prestigious 'Fellow' status by the International Society for Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) in 2014 which recognises senior hair transplant surgeons around the world. He has chaired the ISHRS Ethics Committee and has been faculty on several ISHRS World Live Surgery Workshops and Annual Scientific Meetings including being on the 'coffee with the experts' panel.

It is the combination of the above training and experience that sets Dr Williams apart from many of his hair transplant surgery contemporaries. He now provides world-leading treatment for hair loss, ensuring the techniques used are the most up to date and revolutionary available.

Greg was excellent before, during and after the procedure. He presented all of the options to me and helped me understand the complex procedure, as well as allaying any concerns. The results have been fantastic and I am now considering a second procedure with Greg.

From the outset it was obvious that Mr Williams was someone who I could trust to make the correct decisions regarding my treatment. At no point did I feel like I wasn’t aware of all the information and potential ramifications of the medical procedure I underwent. His medical counsel was excellent and this allowed me to make a completely informed decision. I would recommend Mr Williams to anyone wishing to undergo this type of procedure. You will not be disappointed.

One of the most experienced and highly skilled plastic surgeons in London. He operated on myself recently. My wife and I were very impressed by the time he spent with me. He was very polite, has excellent compassion and communication skills. Mr Williams is very professional and a credit to his specialty. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Greg performed a transplant for me in April 2015 at the Fargo clinic in London. The initial consultation, the operation and the aftercare have all been performed by Greg and his team to the highest standards. I would choose to use Greg and the team again for further work should it be required.

Comprehensive explanation of the procedure and after care regime provided. Personable but also frank and forthright assessment given, regarding any potential drawbacks associated with my specific circumstances. Happy and quick to clarify anything as well (which was just as well cause I was a bit slow on the uptake and a little worse for wear that day). Very professional service.

The operation was carried out extremely efficiently and professionally and Mr Greg Williams delivered everything I had anticipated including an excellent head of growing hair! Whilst I had understood the procedure as it was described to me, the professionalism of Dr Williams and his team was evident throughout the day and I would have no problem in recommending Dr Williams for this procedure to anyone. Suffice to say I am delighted with the results and the courtesy, care and attention afforded to me.
