The Cadogan Clinic is a UK Centre of Excellence in aesthetic and skin procedures, producing research and delivering advanced training in the field of aesthetic procedures.
The Clinic offers a full-funded plastic surgery fellowship to fellows selected by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (BAAPS) and The British Association of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (BAPRAS). These fellows are fully trained Plastic Surgeons who come to work alongside our world-class consultants. Alongside their research, the fellows will also gain experience carrying out their own surgery at the Cadogan Clinic under the direct supervision of the Clinic founder, Bryan Mayou and the Director of Research, Mr Olivier Amar.
This fellowship allows the Cadogan Clinic to provide our patients with a free consultation and surgery at a reduced rate when delivered by our supervised fellows.

“My four weeks have been exceptionally helpful towards my future career by getting a better insight into Plastic surgery and Dermatology. My first week I was based with Mr Amar who was incredibly insightful in teaching about the procedures he performs. Working with Mr Amar I build up my knowledge of different cosmetic body surgeries and cosmetic procedures by teaching and reviewing recently published articles. I had a particular interest in Fat transfer after both researching and observing these procedures. Mr Amar has helped me review some articles with the idea to create a document about my own personal commentary on fat transfer with my knowledge gained, preconceptions and full thoughts after this observership.
I spend time in theatre with Mr Cavale, Mr Van-Niekerk, Mr Branford, Mr Sadideen Mr Al-Ayoubi, Mr Atherton and Dr Sheth I also spend time with Dr Azzopardi, Dr Sheth and Mr Cavale in consultations. I personally like spending time in theatre as I am a visual learner, so I benefit from observing procedures. I know some students do not enjoy spending a lot of time in the theatre, so I think having 2 days a week in the theatre is a good compromise.
The types of surgeries and procedures observed included: Breast augmentation with implant and fat transfer, breast augmentation replacement, Mastopexy, Breast reduction, Liposuction, Brazilian Abdominoplasty, Rhinoplasty, Septo-rhinoplasty, Labiaplasty,f Blepharoplasty, Fat transfer to the face, Mohs procedure, Laser Liposuction, Laser scar treatment, Laser hair removal, and Chemical peels.
I have also had the opportunity to be involved in an audit with Mr Cavale. Doing an audit during medical school is extremely beneficial to help with future research projects. My audit involved taking an estimated time of operation from everyone in the operating theatre and comparing them to the actual time of the surgery. I think having one surgeon or dermatologist to specifically do an audit or project with is very beneficial. It allows you, as a student, to be able to possibly publish some data which is extremely helpful for future practice as a doctor”.
