    About

    Mr. Chris Abela is a highly acclaimed reconstructive surgeon, having undergone 20 years of specialist training, not only here in London but in Los Angeles and Cape Town, South Africa. He is a graduate of Cambridge University and a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons. He is also a member of the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons and the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. He holds a substantive post with the Chelsea and Westminster NHS Trust.

    Mr. Abela is able to provide bespoke consultations to adults, offering the full spectrum of cosmetic and reconstructive skin procedures, as well as non-surgical interventions, such as Botox. He has a specialist interest in postpartum abdominal wall insufficiency and abdominoplasty.

His overarching philosophy is to offer a safe and evidence-based approach to the medicine and surgery provided and a holistic and honest approach to consultation to enable the patient to achieve a better quality of life, long after discharge from hospital.
