He returned to London to complete basic surgical training and then undertook a two-year research degree at the RAFT Institute (University College London) leading to the award of MD.

He then completed specialist training in Plastic surgery in London and Oxford. He spent a year of further subspecialist training (Breast, Head and Neck) in Toronto, Canada, followed by six months working as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon in British Columbia. Throughout his career, William has been keenly interested in clinical research and improving treatment outcomes. He has published nearly 30 articles in peer-reviewed journals and is an author of several book chapters. During his time in Oxford, he was appointed an Honorary Fellow in Medicine at Brasenose College.

As well as a private cosmetic practice, William runs a busy NHS reconstructive practice as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Guy�s and St. Thomas� NHS Foundation Trust where he is Head of Plastic Surgery.
