Mr Anthony MacQuillan

Consultant Plastic Surgeon

Professional profile

Anthony is a Consultant Plastic Surgeon specialising in aesthetic surgery at St Joseph’s Hospital. He graduated from the Royal London Hospital Medical College in 1997 and undertook his specialist training in plastic surgery at Mount Vernon Hospital (now moved to the Royal Free Hospital) and Guys and St Thomas’s Hospital in London. Additional super- specialist training included the renowned Aesthetic Fellowship at the Wellington Hospital, London and a further fellowship in Paris, as well as gaining a research doctorate degree in nerve reconstruction from the University of London.

His cosmetic practice includes facial aesthetic surgery (including eyelid surgery, face lifting, neck lifting, rhinoplasty and ear surgery), breast surgery (augmentation, uplift, reduction and fat grafting or lipofilling) and body contouring (tummy tuck procedures, arm and thigh lift and massive weight loss re-contouring).

In his aesthetic practice, Anthony prides himself on the delivery of personal and tailored care to all of his patients, from initial consultation through to a comprehensive aftercare package. In order to maximise the flow of information during the consultation process, Anthony is able to offer the Canfield Vectra H1 3D-imaging system to help with the pre-operative planning process which is particularly useful for rhinoplasty and facial aesthetic procedures.

Anthony has a particular interest and is known for his facial and breast fat grafting techniques and his experience in face rejuvenation (both advanced mini facelifts and full face and neck lifts) under sedation and local anaesthetic. He has wide experience with BodyJet liposuction and fat harvest and is one of the UK’s biggest individual users of the waterjet liposuction technique.

In the area of facial aesthetics, Anthony is able to offer consultations for the treatment of lines and wrinkles as well as micro and nano fat-transfer for skin rejuvenation. 

Always aiming to be able to offer his patients the latest in aesthetic advancements he regularly attends international aesthetic conferences and courses.

Anthony lives in Bristol and is married with three sons and a daughter (family life mopping up most of his free time!). When not working he enjoys surfing, running and swimming.

Anthony was appointed as an NHS consultant in 2009. In 2018 he resigned from his position as Consultant to the Peripheral Nerve Injury Unit at the renowned Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital to concentrate exclusively on his aesthetic surgery practice.

Particular areas of interest are facial rejuvenation, nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) and breast and body reshaping. Anthony can offer a wealth of experience within these areas and will give you a straight forward opinion on what is achievable and what is not achievable.

Anthony has a research doctorate awarded by the University of London (2008) and has published extensively on the subject of nerve injury and repair.
