Meet the Surgeons
Dr. Gareth N Tjasink
I am a National Trainer for Restylane products and regularly teach other Doctors and Specialist the nuances of this burgeoning field. This has also offered me the opportunity to travel internationally to learn the latest techniques on offer.
My interests are vast and varied, covering all aspects that our discipline has on offer, from reconstruction to cosmetics. I enjoy this unique speciality immensely and couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
