Greg Williams is the only member of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons who performs hair transplant surgery on a full time basis. He has over a decade of experience in hair restoration not only for genetic male and female hair loss, but also for reconstruction post trauma and burns. Prior to entering private practice full time, Greg was the Lead Clinician at London's Burn Centre at the Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust and was the Clinical Director of the London and South East of England Burn Care Network. He co-authored the UK national documents for Burn Major Incidents, Burn Advice to National Trauma Networks and Thresholds for Admission to Burn Services. He was also one of the very few doctors who performed follicular unit hair transplants in the National Health Service (NHS).
Greg is the current President of the British Association of Hair Restoration Surgery (BAHRS) and, on its behalf, advises the UK Department of Health on matters to do with Hair Restoration Surgery (HRS) such as the recent Health Education England review of the training requirements for Cosmetic Procedures. He advises the Joint Council for Cosmetic Surgery (JCCP) and the Cosmetic Practice Standards Authority (CPSA). He also advises the British Standards Institute (BSI) on projects such as the development of the European Standard for Aesthetic medicine services - Non-surgical medical procedures. He is the specialist advisor to the Care Quality Commission for matters to do with HRS in England and similarly advises Health Inspectorate Wales.
Greg is involved in the education of doctors learning about Hair Transplant Surgery, regularly lectures at aesthetic conferences, and is part of the faculty at the University College London’s Plastic Surgery MSc program. He participates in hair related research collaborating with Imperial College, Queen Mary University London, and Guys and St Thomas’ Hospital. He was awarded the ‘Fellow’ status by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) in 2014 which recognises senior Hair Transplant Surgeons around the world. Greg chairs the ISHRS Bylaws and Ethics Committee, and sits on the ISHRS Best Practice Committee. He has been on the faculty of the last three ISHRS Annual Scientific Meetings including being on the ‘coffee with the experts’ panel and chairing the Basics Course which teaches beginners new to the field of hair transplant surgery.
This wealth of experience contributes to the professionalism that patients experience whether having a consultation or surgery with Greg Williams at the Farjo Hair Institute.
