About me

Mr William Townley read medical sciences at Clare College, Cambridge and clinical medicine at Brasenose College, Oxford. He returned to London to complete basic surgical training and then undertook a two-year research degree at the RAFT Institute (University College London) leading to the award of MD.

He then completed specialist training in Plastic surgery in London and Oxford. He spent a year of further subspecialist training (Breast, Head and Neck) in Toronto, Canada, followed by six months working as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon in British Columbia. Throughout his career, William has been keenly interested in clinical research and improving treatment outcomes. He has published nearly 30 articles in peer-reviewed journals and is an author of several book chapters. During his time in Oxford, he was appointed an Honorary Fellow in Medicine at Brasenose College.

As well as a private cosmetic practice, William runs a busy NHS reconstructive practice as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. His main areas of expertise are corrective surgery for patients with facial paralysis and head and neck cancer reconstruction. This involves complex operations to restore appearance and function in patients with facial deformities or head and neck cancers (face, nose, jaw, throat). He also performs breast and body contouring surgery in patients following significant weight loss. Outside of the NHS, he has been a pitch-side surgeon in international rugby games, providing onsite treatment for complex facial lacerations and injuries.
