Profile

Mr Robert Warr is a successful and established consultant plastic surgeon who has been working in Bristol and Gloucestershire for 14 years.

Robert is dedicated to providing the highest standard of care to every cosmetic or reconstructive surgery patient in his care. He prides himself on the personal relationship he develops with his patients knowing that the trust and confidence you have in your surgeon is vital to a patient’s peace of mind throughout their surgical journey. Safety and wellbeing are always his top priority.

He understands that the goals and motivations for undergoing any cosmetic procedure may be complex and that him getting to know his patients is the key to success.

Your first consultation is an opportunity to get to know your surgeon and for him to get to know you. You will have ample time to talk through your motivations and goals. You will receive an open and honest opinion regarding your suitability for surgery and advice on whether the procedure you are considering is the best procedure for you. Patients find Robert’s approach to be relaxed, friendly, holistic and informative. 

Born and brought up in Bristol, Robert holds undergraduate and postgraduate medical degrees from Southampton and Bristol University. His specialist plastic surgical training was gained in London and Paris. Whilst in London he specialised in cosmetic, craniofacial and oculoplastic surgery at Chelsea and Westminster, Charing Cross and the Cromwell Hospitals. In Paris he spent nine months at the Curie Institute specialising in breast surgery. During this time Robert was trained in the most advanced techniques in aesthetic surgery. Over the past 14 years as a consultant, Robert has built upon this foundation to gain extensive experience in all areas of aesthetic surgery.

Within the NHS, Robert has a broad specialist interest but much of his work is in complex breast surgery, abdominal and pelvic reconstruction and post weight loss surgery. He operates regularly with the breast cancer teams at Southmead hospital and the colorectal and gynaecology teams at the Bristol Royal infirmary. When on call for trauma, his primary interest is in soft tissue facial and nasal trauma. It is a feature, therefore, that Robert can mirror his primary cosmetic interests of abdominoplasty, post weight loss surgery, rhinoplasty, breast cosmetic surgery and gynaecological surgery in his NHS work. This relatively unusual situation has resulted simply from a passion in these specific fields and a realisation that sub-specialisation is key to obtaining the best possible outcomes.

Robert has an extensive track record in publications and innovation. He is widely published and has supervised several PhDs. In 1995 he received the Royal College of Surgeons ‘Patten and Masser award’ for his research into the molecular biology of Malignant Melanoma. Robert has spoken as invited guest at international conferences, most recently as a key note speaker in the Pan Asian International Breast Cancer Conference 2016. He is a senior lecturer at Bristol University and runs a Royal College Recognised Surgical Training Course annually.

When undertaking cosmetic surgery, the look Robert aims to achieve is always natural and fresh. Robert focuses heavily on the care you receive pre- and post-operatively, to optimise the outcome of your surgery and provide you with a smooth recovery after your procedure.

Robert believes that availability is an essential part of his popularity with patients. He has learnt, for example, that his patients value being reviewed in person the day after surgery. Equally, that many questions arise in the days and weeks after surgery and so he arranges dressing appointments to coincide with his clinics. Furthermore, even if patients need reassurances further down the line, all follow up appointments, even if many years later, are not charged for.
