Dr Will Anderson

Will is a fully accredited plastic surgeon and is on the GMC Specialist Register for Plastic Surgery. He was appointed as an NHS Consultant in Edinburgh in 2008. He has NHS commitments at St John’s Hospital Livingston and Edinburgh NHS hospitals and paediatric commitments in Fife.

His NHS interests include plastic and reconstructive surgery for both children and adults. He is often involved in providing a reconstruction for complex cases from other specialities and is a fully trained microvascular surgeon. He provides a regional genitoperineal reconstruction service and is the clinical lead in the Laser Department at St John’s Hospital. His microvascular skills include providing mastectomy reconstruction using the patient’s tissues, and he performs all aspects of aesthetic breast and body surgery that can help restore patients both physically and psychologically.

Like many Plastic Surgeons, he is also involved in managing and reconstructing burns, trauma and skin cancers.

Mr Anderson graduated from Glasgow University in 1992 and obtained a Master of Science degree from University College London in 1999. His plastic surgery training has been based in Scotland but has also taken him worldwide, including time in a world-leading microsurgical centre in Taiwan and the Dallas Children’s Hospital. He completed fully accredited UK Plastic Surgical training in 2008 to take up his NHS Consultancy in Lothian. His blend of surgical skills and knowledge of non-surgical treatments, including his experience with Laser treatments, lend themselves to providing optimal care.
