Mr Price is a consultant plastic, reconstructive & aesthetic surgeon. He works in the NHS and privately, specialising in facial reconstruction and aesthetics. He also has a significant skin lesion practice.

Mr Price is an experienced and fully trained surgeon. He began his training in the world-famous St Andrews Hospital, Billericay (now the St Andrews Centre, Chelmsford) before embarking on a period of research, looking into the role of hyaluronic acid (the material in most cosmetic filler injections) in tissue engineering in the Royal London Hospital. He then trained as a registrar in the north west, including the Christie Hospital (Europe’s largest cancer hospital at the time). Subsequently he undertook two fellowships in world-famous units in Australia, specialising in head & neck and facial reconstruction and an aesthetics fellowship in Cheshire and Merseyside.

Mr Price was, until 2010, the lead plastic surgeon for skin cancer services in Cambridgeshire and until 2021 the lead for head and neck reconstruction at Addenbrooke's Hospital. He helped introduce sentinel lymph node biopsy into Addenbrooke's Hospital. In addition, Mr Price undertakes breast and body surgery, including breast augmentation, breast reduction, abdominoplasty surgery, weight loss surgery (arm and leg reduction, breast & abdominal surgery) as well as corrective surgery for cosmetic complications.

He has the Royal College of Surgeons Cosmetic Surgery Certification. 

Mr Price also sees patients for corrective surgery following cosmetic surgery complications.

Personal interests

Mr Price is often asked to work with the media and has been seen on Embarrassing Fat Bodies and Surgeons on the Edge of Life. He has been contacted by national papers and magazines for comments or to write editorial based on his research as well as his consultancy work. 

Mr Price does not take part in media that does not truly reflect plastic surgery and its risks, and so has had to turn down some media approaches who he felt were looking for a sensationalist point of view.
