About Us

Mr Sterne

Mr Guy Sterne is a plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgeon working in the Midlands. His NHS base is at the City Hospital in Birmingham where he specialises in Breast Reconstructive Surgery. He also undertakes gynae-oncology reconstructions and performs procedures for skin cancers. He has busy private practises in 3 hospitals: Halesowen near Birmingham; Worcester; and Gloucester, where he undertakes all aspects of plastic and cosmetic surgery.

Mr. Sterne qualified from Birmingham Medical School in 1988, after which he began his specialist training in Plastic Surgery, including two years research for which he was awarded a Doctorate of Medicine and a Hunterian Professorship from the Royal College of Surgeons. He is fully trained and highly experienced in all plastic and cosmetic procedures such as breast enlargement, uplift and reduction, facial surgery such as facelifts, endoscopic brow lifts, eyelids, and nose reshaping surgery as well as body contouring procedures such as tummy tucks, liposuction and labial surgery.

He holds an NHS post at City Hospital, Birmingham, where he specialises in Breast reconstruction. He was formerly appointed as national Tutor for Plastic surgery at The Royal College of Surgeons where he still advises and teaches on current training in plastic surgery.

He is on the GMC Specialist Register for Plastic Surgery and is a member of the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) and the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS).

“I like to take time to listen and understand my patient?s expectations and concerns before giving an open and honest opinion. I believe that cosmetic surgery should only be undertaken after all issues have been discussed and considered carefully. I use a wide range of techniques and aim to produce excellent, natural results.”
