The Aesthetics Awards

Held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on Saturday 12th March, the Aesthetics Awards honour the achievements and dedication of all those working in medical aesthetics across the UK.

Hosted by TV presenter Cherry Healey, and known as the ‘Oscars of Aesthetics,’ the evening saw over 850 guests watch as awards in 26 categories were handed out.

The final and most-coveted award was for ‘Medical Aesthetic Practitioner of the Year’ naming the UK’s Top Aesthetic Doctor, from an elite field of thirteen Doctors from the world of Aesthetics and Dermatology.

Peer-Judged Award


The highest accolade available to an Aesthetic Doctor in the UK, this peer-judged award…

“….recognises the aesthetic doctor who is deemed to have contributed most to the profession and has provided the most outstanding care and treatment to their patients in the last 12 months.

The winner will be judged on their clinical expertise, continuous professional development, commitment to patient safety and the difference they make to their patients, clinic and the profession as a whole.”

“I’m absolutely over the moon. I just feel so proud – I’m speechless and so honoured to have been shortlisted amongst so many amazing colleagues, let alone win.

This goes out to my amazing team for being a part of my world. This also goes to my mum and dad’s legacy because everything that I have done comes from them. So, this one’s for you, mum and dad.”
