“Mr Harris is an amazing surgeon who is very caring and compassionate. I underwent a breast reduction in April and the results are incredible. Having been fortunate to never having surgery before at the age of 57 I was really quite nervous, but I felt I was in safe, expert hands. The phrase "good bedside manner" was truly understood after my experience. I only wish I had done it sooner! I have always had full breasts but after three children and the menopause, they had definitely got larger. I am now having a fantastic summer wearing strappy sundresses and lovely bikinis. I cannot believe how much happier I am now and I also started running again and that too has also been a revelation! I can't thank him or recommend him enough.“

    About

    Mr Paul Harris is a well-known Consultant Plastic Surgeon in Central and South West London where he specialises in cosmetic surgery (particularly of the breast and abdominal wall) and reconstructive surgery following breast cancer treatment or significant weight loss. He also has an interest in facial rejuvenation, liposuction and the surgical treatment of skin cancer.

    Mr Harris received his medical qualification from the University of London in 1991 before undertaking his general surgical training. He then completed an MD during which he conducted research on tissue engineering before going on to complete his specialist training in plastic surgery. Following this, he was awarded a cosmetic surgery fellowship with a world-leading cosmetic surgeon which gave him an exceptional foundation in the field. Mr Harris was then appointed as consultant plastic surgeon and lead clinician at The Royal Marsden Hospital where he was based for almost 15 years working primarily in breast reconstruction.

    Mr Harris' work in both cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery has earned him international recognition, and he was named "Best for Breast" in Tatler's cosmetic surgery guide from 2016 to 2021. He has pioneered and gained expertise in newer breast surgery techniques including the combination of uplifts with implants and the use of dissolvable mesh. He is also the current President of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and regularly lends his expertise on the advances in aesthetic breast surgery at international conferences.

    If you need or have decided on breast surgery, don't look anywhere else. I feel totally privileged to have found Mr Harris to perform my breast reduction surgery Although he explained potential risks, everything has gone very smoothly and I have felt in incredibly safe hands. I could not be more pleased with the results. Mr Harris is an exceptional expert. He is hugely talented and dedicated and this was demonstrated in the results he achieved for me. I could not be more grateful and could not recommend him more highly.

    I can’t express words enough to say how grateful I am to Mr Paul Harris for the surgery he performed on me. It has been truly life changing and I wish I had done it sooner. It has transformed my confidence and I feel like a different person. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mr Harris to anyone who is looking for a top class plastic surgeon, who in my opinion is not only the best in his field but also has a very kind and honest personality. I did a lot of research before booking my surgery and relied a lot on the references and testimonials of people who had similar procedures. Following the initial consultation with Mr Harris I intuitively knew I was in good hands. He was extremely understanding and kind, and totally transparent. He explained the benefits and risks of surgery and answered my list of concerns to the point where I just couldn’t wait to get on with it!! My surgery was quite extensive and involved a breast reduction, tummy tuck and liposuction. It all went to plan with amazing results, totally down to skill and expertise of Mr Harris. My 3 day stay at The London Clinic was so much more I had expected, and the anaesthetists, doctors and nurses also deserve to be praised for their kindness and support in my surgery journey. Mr Harris had been careful to discuss the management of expectations and the unpredictability of healing, and this proved to be an important conversation in the following months ahead. As my new body healed it created some areas of thick scarring with some looseness around the liposuction areas. Mr Harris monitored these scars during the regular consultations at his clinic, and also treated them with steroid injections. His knowledge and experience in dealing with post-surgery issues was extremely reassuring and at no time did I feel any sense of panic or regret when my body didn’t heal as we hoped, because I knew I was in the care of an expert. The aftercare service I received during the following months from Mr Harris and his amazing team was second to none, and a year after my initial surgery Mr Harris carried out some scar revision surgery on the problem areas and I couldn’t be happier! Thank you Mr Harris and your amazing team at No. 5 Devonshire Place.

    From my first consultation I just knew instinctively that Mr Harris was the plastic surgeon for me. Clearly the best in his field but also a lovely gentleman and very easy to talk to as were his team too. The operation went according to plan , and whilst I took things easy for a few days I had no pain whatsoever. Amazing.

    When I initially met with Mr Harris I was feeling very weak and afraid for my future having undergone Cancer treatment for Ovarian Cancer and receiving a positive diagnosis for the BRCA1 gene. Mr Harris from the beginning listened to my concerns and acknowledged them, he gave me informed alternatives and allowed my husband and I to make our own decisions about the surgery I had, which was risk reducing double Mastectomy with bilateral DIEP flaps reconstruction, I am 6 months past the surgery and feel so positive about my body and looking forward to my future with grateful Thanks to Mr Harris, I cannot recommend him enough for his incredible surgical skills and even more for his understanding and kindness when I needed it most.

    I’ve lived with my oversized 32J breasts for too many years. I don’t know what snapped finally and pushed me to do something about it but once I’d done my research, there really was no better option than Paul Harris. I knew I was in the best hands from the first moment I met him. I had just wanted them to be smaller but by the time of the operation I’d built enough confidence in Mr Harris that I let myself dare to believe that they could be nice as well as small. And they really really are. I had the best care, and he was so reassuring especially just beforehand. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I’m now a very nice neat 32DD. He is an artist! I have body confidence for the first time in decades. I would recommend Mr Harris without any reservations. Thank you giving me myself back.
