Nav Cavale is a fully qualified and fully accredited UK Plastic Surgeon (board certified, on the Specialist Register) who trained in London.

Nav Cavale, a Real Plastic Surgeon

As the company name suggests, he is passionate that cosmetic surgery patients see a 'Real' surgeon i.e. one that is properly trained and qualified, not only in carrying out your procedure, but also able to properly deal with any situation arising after surgery (expected or unexpected).

If he cannot deal with the issue himself, and you require another specialist, he will gladly refer you on to one of his large network of similarly highly qualified colleagues - this is one of the great advantages of working in the NHS.

About


The UK has the ridiculous situation whereby anyone with even the most basic surgery qualification can call themselves a Plastic Surgeon, Cosmetic Surgeon, Aesthetic Surgeon and so forth. With non-surgical treatment such as fillers, the situation is even worse.

Anyone can inject fillers into someone else, provided they have permission. It is therefore perfectly legal for a GP to do a tummy tuck or a plumber to inject you with filler in the UK! To further put things in perspective, animals in the UK appear to have better protection.

Even the most highly qualified surgeon cannot operate on an animal without the appropriate Home Office licenses, and quite rightly so - this protects animals from illegal experimantation and cruelty. But, we as humans, are not so lucky in the UK...

The Royal College of Surgeons has made a really good start at setting up a register of surgeons who are qualified to carry out particular cosmetic procedures (for example, only properly qualified plastic surgeons, ENT surgeons, Maxillofacial surgeons shoud be allowed to perform rhinoplasty) and you can see their document here, but at the moment the plan isn't for the register to be compulsory, so the public are still vulnerable to 'Cowboy Traders' out there.
