10 Dr Naveen Cavale, FRCS (Plast)
Naveen Cavale is a fully accredited Plastic Surgeon (on the UK Specialist Register, equivalent to USA Board Certified) who trained and qualified in London. He has an NHS Plastic & Reconstructive practice in King’s College Hospital, London as well as a Private Plastic, Reconstructive & Cosmetic Surgery practice in Central London.
Nav puts patients first, with the emphasis being on safety. He is keen to put you at ease and will never ‘sell’ surgery to you. He never rushes consultations and you will only ever be offered a procedure that is wholly appropriate for you.
Mr. Cavale prefers and encourages natural results as he believes these are both long-lasting, and less likely to cause problems in the long run. He is on the GMC Specialist Register for Plastic Surgery and is a full member of BAPRAS, BAAPS, and ISAPS. He is fully insured via Paragon, a UK-based indemnity company, specialising in plastic surgeons.
Nav 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.
He has recently taken his reconstructive skills to other parts of the world where they are desperately needed – the work has been featured on BBC World, in the UK press, in The Mirror and The Guardian, as well as the UK Government’s DfID website – read Naveen’s own account here.
Training the next generation of plastic surgeons is hugely important and Naveen has set up the world’s most popular knowledge-sharing website for trainee plastic surgeons, to help them prepare for their pre-consultant exams.
He enjoys tinkering with gadgetry – this inspired the research for his MSc degree and he has presented and published extensively in the international plastic surgery literature.
Naveen is married with two children and lives in South London.
9 Dr Motykie Plastic Surgery
Dr. Gary Motykie is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is highly skilled in breast surgery, body contouring, rhinoplasty and facial rejuvenation as well as numerous other cosmetic surgical procedures. With about 50% of his practice consisting of revising surgeries from elsewhere, Dr. Motykie believes in performing safe, effective plastic surgery that focuses on “doing it right the first time.”
Dr. Motykie’s interest in the form and function of the human body began early in his career while he was a fitness competitor and personal trainer. He earned his Undergraduate Degree in the challenging field of Bio-Medical Engineering during which time he was involved in the development of artificial organs and prosthetic limbs. After graduating with the highest honors and multiple academic awards, Dr. Motykie studied Medicine at Northwestern University and Plastic Surgery at the University of Texas, where he performed surgery at one of the world’s top cancer and burn reconstruction facilities.
Dr. Motykie completed an Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship in Beverly Hills, California in 2004. Since then, he has spent the past 10 years dedicated to designing an integrative approach to health, wellness, nutrition, and surgery in order to further evolve his practice beyond the current standards.
“I focus on the human body as a whole in my practice. Too many people now want a ‘quick fix’ at the cheapest possible price rather than a quality procedure that will enhance healing time, outcomes, improve overall health and slow the effects of the aging process.” -Dr. Gary Motykie
Dr. Motykie recently expanded his practice to include a fully equipped, state-of-the-art medical spa. Motykie Med Spa allows patients to experience the combined benefits of pre and post- surgical non-invasive treatments that can optimize results and lessen recovery time. Dr. Motykie believes that “Medical aesthetic treatments should be about improving a patient’s overall health and beauty from the inside-out.” In 2008 Dr. Motykie also formed a non-profit charity called The Healing Curve whose primary mission is to help patients who do not have the means to repair acquired physical deformities from birth, cancer, trauma or prior unsuccessful surgery.
Dr. Motykie has been featured in articles in the New York Times, LA Times, and Wall Street Journal as well as appeared as a regular surgeon on the E! Channel’s Dr. 90201, Celebrity Plastic Surgery, The Doctors, Marie Show, Dr. Phil, MTV, VH1, EXTRA, ACCESS Hollywood, Inside Edition and the Discovery Channel’s Plastic Surgery: Before & After. Dr. Motykie continues to present his work around the world, appearing on numerous televised programs to discuss a wide variety of plastic surgical topics.
“I believe that the most important goal in cosmetic plastic surgery is patient satisfaction, while doing everything I can to ensure their health and wellbeing. Therefore, my primary practice focus is to simply make my patient’s happy. I achieve this goal by listening carefully during my surgical consultations and aligning patient’s desires with realistic expectations. Honesty is my number one policy and I pride myself on providing a thorough, straightforward surgical consultation. I strongly believe that the best plastic surgery results are beautiful, natural and undetectable.
In my professional life, I consistently strive to promote and advance the expanding field of plastic surgery through my consistent involvement in television, radio and written media. It takes extra effort to stay at the forefront of a field that’s constantly changing, but I believe that it is essential in order to keep myself and my patients well-informed about the newest and best surgical techniques available. In this way, I can help to educate and empower patients to make truly informed decisions about having safe, smart and effective plastic surgery.
Through experience and my constant evaluation of emerging technologies, I have engineered surgical techniques that are the safest, least painful and most effective. I have developed a keen artistic eye, extensive scientific knowledge, and skilled surgical hands for the sole purpose of assuring the best possible results. I know that every patient is an individual with different goals, expectations, and aesthetic concerns and I take that into account each and every time a patient puts their trust in my hands.” -Dr. Gary Motykie
