    Mr Gabriel Alvarez Parra has more than 30 years experience in Plastic Surgery. He is on the General Medical Council Specialist Register for Plastic Surgery, a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (FRCS) and a Professional member of the British Association of Plastic Surgeons.

    Mr Alvarez qualified at the National Autonomous University in Mexico City in 1970. Two years later he started his general surgical training at St Georges, and the Royal Marsden Hospitals. He then went on to start his plastic surgery training at the Middlesex Hospital London, the Hospital for Sick Children Great Ormond Street, University College London, and the Plastic Surgery unit at Queen Mary"s Hospital, Roehampton. Throughout his training, Mr Alvarez also worked as a private assistant to many prominent plastic surgeons, gaining extensive experience in cosmetic surgery.

    In 1978, Mr Alvarez returned to Mexico City and worked as a Plastic Surgeon at the Hospital General de Mexico where he developed techniques for facial reconstruction which were published in the British Journal of Plastic Surgery. Also, at this time he refined his cosmetic surgery techniques working alongside Dr Fernando Ortiz Monasterio as well as other prominent Mexican surgeons. In 1982, he returned to the UK and worked for the NHS at University College Hospital and The Royal Free Hospital. In 1995, he worked as a consultant plastic surgeon at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow Essex until 2002.

    Mr Alvarez has an active interest in the teaching of surgery and has organised several courses in minor surgery. He has published a CD ROM course on the subject that has now become integral part of the E step Core and E step Foundation courses for the Surgeons in Training Education Programme of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
