About me

Andy Mellington is a UK trained Consultant Plastic Surgeon and is on the GMC’s specialist register for plastic surgery.

He qualified in medicine from Oxford University and, after a period working in New Zealand, returned to the UK to train in surgery. During early surgical training, Andy undertook a Master’s Degree in Surgical Science at Imperial College London for which he was awarded the highest distinction in his year.

His higher plastic surgery training was based in London and the South East. In 2012, Andy was awarded the Intercollegiate Fellowship in Plastic Surgery, the FRCS(Plast). He then undertook specialist fellowships in cosmetic surgery at The London Clinic, in cancer reconstruction at The Royal Marsden Hospital, in cancer reconstruction and trauma at Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals and Queen Victoria Hospital and in trauma at the Major Trauma Centre in Brighton. These fellowships have enabled Andy to develop a broad practice, with skills in a wide range of reconstructive and aesthetic procedures.

Andy’s main NHS practice at the Queen Victoria Hospital is breast reconstruction. He works closely with the breast cancer service in Brighton and also performs a wide range of general plastic surgery procedures. He holds an Honorary Consultant appointment with Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals where he undertakes lower limb trauma surgery and reconstruction of complex wounds.

Andy’s private practice mirrors his NHS practice. He mainly focuses on aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the breast, chest wall and body as well as skin surgery and lumps and bumps. He also undertakes chest wall reconstructive surgery as part of the Gender Reassignment Service at the Brighton Nuffield Hospital.
