Vivek is a Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Medical Director and Founder of the Elanic Group. He is a specialist in cosmetic surgery, breast reconstruction, skin cancer and laser surgery with a wealth of experience in these specific areas. Prior to opening Elanic Vivek was employed as an NHS Plastic Surgeon, during which time he established a significant private practice. Vivek is on the GMC Specialist Register as a Plastic Surgeon. He has a research degree, is a published author and is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Glasgow. Due to the increasing demands on his time Vivek took the decision to leave the NHS in 2013 to open the Elanic Clinic and now works solely in Private Practice.
Vivek graduated in 1997 from Edinburgh University, then worked in the medicine and surgery departments within the NHS in Glasgow. He gained a place at University College London Hospital where he worked under the tutelage of the Professor of Plastic Surgery. Subsequent to this he returned to Glasgow to further his training and qualified as a surgeon in 2001.
Vivek now has more than 15 years of experience in plastic surgery.
After spending some time on the London Training Scheme in 2003, he again returned to Glasgow to complete his training at the internationally renowned Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit, becoming a Consultant Plastic Surgeon in 2009.
As part of his practice within the NHS Vivek specialised in both plastic and reconstructive breast surgery using microsurgical techniques and laser surgery. Vivek also focussed on patients with severe facial acne scarring combining facial surgery and laser resurfacing to treat this condition. As part of his consultant duties during this time he was a member of the Clyde Combined Skin Cancer Multi-Disciplinary Team.
