Mr Nicholas Hodgins is a fully accredited Consultant Plastic Surgeon currently working within the Plastic Surgery departments of the Ulster and Royal Victoria Hospitals.

Mr Hodgins undertook his medical studies and higher surgical training in a number of prestigious plastic surgery centres around the UK including Newcastle Upon Tyne, Durham, Manchester, Middlesbrough and Belfast. On completing his plastic surgery training Mr Hodgins was nationally appointed to undertake an oncoplastic breast surgery fellowship at the Nightingale Breast Centre in Manchester, one of the largest and most reputable breast surgery units in Europe.

Following this period of specialist training, Mr Hodgins was one of four UK Plastic Surgeons to be awarded the Niall Kirkpatrick Fellowship in Aesthetic Surgery by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS). During this dedicated period of subspecialist practice, he gained expertise in a wide range of cosmetic surgery including breast, abdominal, facial and eyelid surgery.

Mr Hodgins is known in particular for his specialist aesthetic experience in breast and body procedures such as breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lifting and tummy tucks. He also has comprehensive experience in non-surgical aesthetic treatments, often combining these with surgical procedures to achieve ideal results.

Mr Hodgins is a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and is a member of BAPRAS (British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons), BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) and the ABS (Association of Breast Surgeons).
