Mr Arup Ray was appointed as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon in the Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit in 1994.This unit in Glasgow is one of the most prestigious and internationally renowned plastic surgery units in the world and has pioneered several plastic surgical techniques that are now widely applied the world over.

Mr Ray completed his training in the Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit as a Senior Registrar and successfully passed the Intercollegiate Specialty Fellowship Examination in 1993 and was the first recipient in the United Kingdom of the Ian McGregor gold medal in Plastic Surgery.

He has been extensively trained in all areas of cosmetic/aesthetic surgery and his areas of subspecialty interest as a Consultant in the NHS include cleft lip and palate surgery and breast reconstruction surgery.
