Mr Nikhil Maini
Consultant Maxillofacial Surgeon
I completed my Oral and Maxillofacial training in the UK. I am certified as a specialist by the General Medical Council. I trained at East Grinstead, Brighton and Eastbourne. I have degrees in medicine and dentistry from the University of Glasgow. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and a Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgeons of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
During my higher training, I developed a particular interest in jaw surgery, skin surgery and facial trauma.
I first became involved in facial feminisation surgery six years ago with Keith Altman. Mr Altman has an international reputation for his expertise in facial feminisation surgery. I have been mentored by Mr Altman over the years to his high standards in all aspects of facial feminisation surgery.
I hold NHS Consultant appointments at Brighton, East Grinstead and Eastbourne. Brighton is a major trauma centre where I maintain my interest in maxillofacial trauma. Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead is an internationally renowned specialist hospital where my main practice is orthognathic jaw surgery. I operate on facial skin cancers requiring reconstruction at Eastbourne Hospital which is the UK's second busiest maxillofacial unit for skin surgery.
