David Gault qualified at Edinburgh University, trained in Plastic Surgery in London, and gained further experience in Paris, California and Japan. He was Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Mount Vernon Hospital, Northwood, Middlesex and The Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, London, England, and Honorary Senior Lecturer at University College, London. A Visiting Professor, he set up the UK’s first ear reconstruction centres over twenty years ago.
He now works solely in private practice, based in and around London. A talented artist and sculptor, he is an international authority on skin lasers and ear reconstruction, and has a particular interest in the causes and correction of failed aesthetic surgery.
EAR is the specialist Ear Aesthetics and Reconstruction site of Consultant Plastic Surgeon David Gault FRCS. Working within the National Health Service for almost thirty years, he offered an expert ear reconstruction service at Mount Vernon Hospital, Northwood and The Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street. In 2006, he set up the London Centre for Ear Reconstruction, centred at the Portland Hospital.
David Gault sees babies, children and adults, UK and international patients, and private and NHS referrals (by prior arrangement through an Individual Funding Request) at his clinics in and around London. All types of misshape, deformity and disease of the external ear are treated, from minor to major, aesthetic to reconstructive, and congenital to acquired problems such as ear cancer, chondritis (inflammation of the ear cartilage), failed cosmetic surgery and trauma after bite injuries, burns and accidents.
THIS YEAR'S TOP 3 PROCEDURES
1. Ear reduction, in which the ear, ear lobe or both the ear and lobe can be made smaller.
2. Ear lobe rejuvenation, to correct the effects of natural ageing or an unsatisfactory face lift, or to correct splits and tears.
3. Correction of previous ear surgery which has not met expectation. Whilst Mr Gault is very happy to correct ear problems caused by disappointing ear surgery undertaken elsewhere, he emphasises that the end result is often not as good as could have been achieved at a single initial procedure.
