He qualified in 1991 at University College, London, received a master’s and a patent for research into breast cancer at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, studied in Australia and spent two years at the famous Institut Curie in Paris, where he perfected the very latest cutting-edge techniques. After returning to London, he spent two years at the Royal Marsden Hospital helping to reconstruct breasts after surgery for cancer, before joining Cosmetic Surgery Partners. His expertise is in abdominoplasty, breast augmentation, facelift, blepharoplasty, mastopexy, breast reduction, secondary breast surgery, liposuction, labiaplasty and transgender surgery, as well as a host of other non-surgical treatments.

In 2013 he co-authored the Good Boob Bible with Dai Davies – the most comprehensive patient guide to breast augmentation surgery ever written.

He was seen on television as the surgeon to TOWIE’s Chloe Sims (breast augmentation) and MTV’s Lateysha Grace of The Valleys (breast augmentation).

Miles says: “My life changed as a newly qualified doctor, the moment I watched a professor of plastic surgery at University College Hospital take a piece of skin from one part of the body and place it elsewhere to repair damage. It was an absolute light bulb moment for me – and since then, reconstructive surgery has been my total passion.

When you see someone who has had a problem for 20 or 30 years and they turn around and say ‘You have changed my life,’ I feel very privileged.

In September 2007, I went to Paris after hearing of a clinic which had great success in breast reconstruction following treatment for cancer. They were world leaders in oncoplasty surgery, using the naked breast tissue, and I spent two years there advancing my own reconstruction skills.

While I was there I co-wrote my first book Oncoplastic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery. Since then, I’ve written two more books and more than 50 research papers.

I returned from Paris in 2010 and joined the Royal Marsden, putting some of my new breast reconstruction techniques into practice.
