Hello I am a (very) junior plastic surgeon and am really pleased to hear of the good experiences posted above! Always so nice to hear that what we do makes such positive differences to people's lives!
I have no personal experience of Mr Gault but have come across his name as an eminent ear surgeon. Mr Greg O'Toole is another I would recommend as an ear specialist. (BTW I am too junior to be gaining finically from any recommendation) Mr O'Toole I have heard lecture recently at an international conference and thought his approach was excellent.
When looking for a cosmetic surgeon please look for a couple of key things... FRCS (plast) after the surgeon's name this means they have passed exams to become consultant plastic surgeon. Shockingly almost anyone in the UK is allowed to brand themselves a 'cosmetic surgeon' with very little credentials. Use this webpage to help http://www.bapras.org.uk/public/patient ... ic-surgery
. Secondly go for someone with lots of experience in your particular area ie ears. In London we are so spoilt for choice so it makes sense to go to the very best in which particular body part you are considering surgery on.
Hope that may be helpful.
