Surgery Group Surgeons
A graduate of Manchester University Medical School, Ivo is trained in all aspects of Plastic Surgery. He trained within the London Deanery, working in most of London’s Teaching Hospitals. He obtained his Certificate of Completion of Training in Plastic Surgery in November 2010. He spent all of 2011 working as a fellow within the Craniofacial Unit at Great Ormond Street Hospital. In August 2013, he left the UK for the United States where he undertook a 12 month fellowship in Craniomaxillofacial surgery at the world renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio, United States.
During his time at the Cleveland Clinic, Ivo spent time further subspecialising in adult and paediatric craniofacial surgery. He also undertook pioneering research which led to the development of a new technique for the reconstruction of the middle vault of the nose, known as the ‘Fulcrum Spreader Graft’. This method is now published in the scientific literature. He is the author of several papers and is co-author of several chapters in the newly published Plastic Surgery textbook ‘Plastic Surgery – A problem based approach’ as well as the author of a couple of chapters in the new Atlas for Craniofacial Surgery.
Ivo consults patients at 10 Harley Street in Central London and operates at both the Harley Health Village and the Welbeck Hospital in Central London. The types of procedures Ivo performs include:- facial aesthetic surgery (facelift, brow lift, upper and lower blepharoplasty, neck lift, otoplasty, rhinoplasty genioplasty, insertion of orbital rim implants, mandibular and malar implants), breast aesthetic surgery (breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast uplift (mastopexy), body contouring surgery (liposuction, body lift, abdominoplasty, brachioplasty and thigh lift).

Regarding COVID19, we are working with selected COVID-protected facilities who have now reopened. These clinics have started a phased return model for a new normal with various safety measures in place including a limited number of procedures, reduced footfall through the clinic and enhanced PPE for staff. On the day, you will be asked to complete a COVID questionnaire and have your temperature taken on entry, as well as being asked to wash your hands. You will be asked to wear a face mask so that theoretically you are protected and you protect staff members in case anyone happens to be positive whilst asymptomatic.
Surgery Group have adopted guidelines from the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery for use in all clinics taking into account UK law and each clinic has completed a COVID19 risk assessment of the patient journey through the clinic and taken steps to minimise risk, and we hope that by doing so, the risk of contracting coronavirus is significantly less than your weekly supermarket shop, however, it is not possible to guarantee that the risk of catching it is zero, such as in the nature of the virus.
