Dr Omar Tillo
MD, MS, EBOPRAS, FRCS (PLASTIC SURGERY)
Consultant Plastic Surgeon
Speciality: Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery
Double board certified plastic surgeon with an extensive background in general surgery.
Having graduated in 1997 with a degree in medicine, I went on to complete a 4-year specialisation programme in General Surgery in 2002. Later, I did a second specialisation in Plastic Surgery. Upon passing the MRCS exam in 2005, I became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Later, I also became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
Since 2005, I have trained and worked exclusively in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery. Having worked in some of the busiest hospitals in the United Kingdom, I’ve developed a set of advanced skills in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery involving microsurgery, breast reconstruction, burns, hand, head and neck surgery. I’ve completed two advanced fellowships, one being in hand surgery and another in breast reconstruction.
I was awarded the Master Degree in General Surgery, and the MD degree (Medical Doctorate with Thesis) for my research work on angiogenesis. I subsequently passed the European Board of Plastic Surgery exam, and the United Kingdom Intercollegiate Board Exam in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
During my previous job as a consultant at the National Health Service (NHS), I developed the breast surgery oncoplastic service at Bedford Hospital by implementing microsurgery, free flap reconstruction, complex and revision breast surgery. Simultaneously, I set up and ran an oncoplastic training program for both doctors and nurses.
My team was twice nominated for the Hospital’s ‘Team of The Year Award’ and won the ‘Service Improvement and Innovation Award’ in November 2018.
I am on the General Medical Council Specialist Register for Plastic Surgery and I’m also a member of the UK Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (UKAAPS).
