About Miss Judith Hunter

GMC number: 4675240

Year qualified: 1999

Place of primary qualification: University of Cambridge

Miss Hunter is a highly esteemed Senior Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgeon at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, a position she has held since January 2015. She graduated from the University of Cambridge and has over a decade of extensive training in plastic and reconstructive surgery, having honed her skills in Cambridge, London, and Australia. In 2011, she achieved her FRCS (Plast) and by 2013, she was on the specialist register for plastic surgery.

Miss Hunter has a profound interest in breast surgery, with a particular focus on free tissue transfer, DIEP Flap breast reconstruction, and TUG Flap breast reconstruction. She has performed approximately 300 DIEP Flap breast reconstructions, earning a reputation for her natural results in cosmetic surgery. Additionally, she has carried out around 1000 breast reductions and regularly performs mastopexies (breast uplift), breast augmentations (both implants and fat transfer), augment mastopexies (breast enlargement and uplift), and implant removals with capsulectomies and exchanges.

Her expertise extends to body contouring surgery, including abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), brachioplasty (arm lift), and inner thigh lifts, often combining these procedures with liposuction for optimal results.

Miss Hunter has completed three prestigious microsurgery fellowships at the Royal Marsden and St Thomas's Hospitals in London, as well as a year-long fellowship in Australia, for which she was awarded the Ellison-Cliffe Travelling Fellowship from the Royal Society of Medicine. Her research into the early detection of skin cancer underscores her commitment to advancing medical knowledge and patient care. She also serves as a Senior Consultant for SkinHealth UK.

Miss Hunter's dedication to her field and her patients is evident in her meticulous approach to surgery and her ongoing contributions to medical education and research.
