Overview of Dr De Silva


Dr De Silva was born and raised in London and went to the world-renowned London Teaching Hospital, Guy’s, King’s and St. Thomas’s Medical School, now known as Kings College London. He was always passionate about aesthetics and spent his international elective in plastic surgery at the University of California in 1999. He went onto teaching anatomy at Guy’s Hospital, Neurosurgery at King’s College before accepting an ophthalmic surgery registrar post in London, which at this time was one of the most competitive specialties in medicine and surgery.

Dr De Silva completed ophthalmology specialist training before specialising in Oculo-Facial Plastic surgery. Dr De Silva trained in ophthalmic micro-surgery, where measurements of millimetres are important, and applied this attention to detail to facial plastic surgery procedures. After working in the NHS for more than a decade, he expanded his knowledge and skills in facial plastic surgery in renowned plastic surgery centres in New York and Los Angeles.


Dr De Silva is recognised as an expert on the latest advances in facial cosmetic surgery and has published three books on facial cosmetic surgery and has presented at major international conferences in the US and Europe.

His philosophy focuses on the use of small incision and fast recovery techniques to give natural looking results, and was the only surgeon in a major London Teaching Hospital to obtain skills in the use of minimally invasive and endoscopic technology overseas, that provide the ultimate in small incision surgery eliminating scars and expediting recovery. Dr De Silva’s goal is to help his patients look better and feel better about themselves.

Having worked with celebrities, models, and professionals whose careers hinge on their appearance, Dr De Silva is committed to delivering results that embody enhancement rather than radical transformation.

Face Only

By focusing entirely on only facial cosmetic surgery procedures, Dr De Silva is able to provide the expertise that can only come with specialisation: facelift and neck lift, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty and chin implants. Dr De Silva believes that procedures on the face should be in accordance with harmony and balance which requires artistic interpretation of beauty. He relies on his education and passion of art and sculpting to offer patients natural results. Facial cosmetic surgery is demanding, each patient requires a meticulous assessment, an informed discussion about healing, recovery and expectations, and customised procedures with attention to intricate detail.

With over 10-years of surgical experience, Dr De Silva believes that he can give you the best possible results not just because of his technical innovations and enthusiasm for success, but also because of his artistic understanding of anatomy, obsession with detail and care of patients.

Schedule a Consultation

When you have satisfied yourself regarding the above criteria, the next step is to meet face-to-face with the surgeon you are considering to pursue surgery with. Nothing can replace a face-to-face meeting with the surgeon themselves. The key to a good result is the artistry of the individual surgeon because no two faces are identical. Caution is advised in high street providers in which you are unable to meet the surgeon before the day of surgery as usually this means the surgeon is a mass market provider and may not be available after the surgery. More than one surgeon may ‘meet’ the qualifications but the focus should be that you feel comfortable with your surgeon and agree with their style. Excellent communication between you and your surgeon should be the main factor of your overall decision.


What our satisfied clients are saying

“I am currently in Dhaka, and I am healing very well. I am extremely happy with the results and it looks so natural that everyone says I look much fresher but no one can put a finger on the reason why. I just wanted to thank you again, and also ask if I can resume taking my Vitamin E and Omega 3 supplements.

Thanks you so much!”
