Welcome to Effie Katerinaki

Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgeon

I believe that Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery should be individualised and tailored to each person’s needs and that all procedures to alter the appearance should follow the rules of safe surgical practice.

I have a special interest and expertise in breast and body contouring cosmetic procedures and I strive to offer the best personalised advice, treatment and care to my patients. Time spent during the initial consultation is the first step to achieving the best results and everyone who has met me knows well that I offer the opportunity for as many pre-operative consultations as required before the decision to proceed with surgery is made.

I have tried to include as much information as possible on the procedures I perform in my website. I hope you find it helpful, informative and easy to navigate.
