Meet the team
A wealth of experience at your disposal.
At Elanic some of our founding principles were that “we are a Consultant led service; our clinicians are all UK trained; our consultant surgeons are FRCS qualified; and our Plastic Surgeons are all members of either BAPRAS or BAAPS, the two leading plastic surgery organisations in the UK.” We continue to hold true to these principles as we grow the business.
Vivek Sivarajan – Consultant Plastic Surgeon
Medical Director & Founder of The Elanic Group
Mb ChB MRCS MD FRCS Plast
Vivek is a Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Medical Director and founder of the Elanic Group. He is a specialist in several areas of cosmetic surgery, such as breast reconstruction, skin cancer and laser surgery where he has a wealth of experience in these specific sub-specialist areas.
In the area of Day Case Surgery Vivek’s vison has driven Elanic forward as the leading provider of day surgery for Breast Augmentation, Body Sculpting and Facial Surgery and he recently presented to his peers at a joint meeting of the societies of British and Belgian Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery in Bruges, Belgium on the efficacy and benefits of advanced day case surgery using local anaesthesia and sedation.
Vivek was employed as an NHS Plastic Surgeon for 12 years, during which time he also established a significant private practice. Whilst building his private practice he specialised in all aspects facial surgery, including face lifts and eye surgery and bodycontouring surgery, and more recently he has begun to focus on body reshaping after significant weight loss. The latter is growing part of his practice and is a highly specialised area given the extent of surgery required on these patients which has to be effectively planned as it may result in multiple surgeries in order to achieve the desire result.
Vivek took the decision to leave the NHS in 2013 to open the Elanic Clinic in Glasgow and now works solely in private practice, with clinics in Aberdeen and London currently with other UK locations currently under consideration. This has also led to an increasing number of plastic surgeons joining the Elanic Team to work and train with Vivek whose role also includes the Medical Director responsibility for all Elanic activity.
Vivek is on the GMC Specialist Register as a Plastic Surgeon, he has a research degree, is a published author and is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Glasgow. He is also a Full Member of BAPRAS, The British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons and BAAPS, The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.
As the reputation of the clinic and Vivek’s personal reputation have continued to grow over the last few years there have been a growing number of international clients who have come to Elanic at the Glasgow and Aberdeen clinics, from Europe, the Middle East and North America. During this time the demand from the London and surrounding area has also grown to the extent that the decision was taken in February 2015 to establish a clinic in London to service both of these markets more effectively.
Vivek graduated in 1997 from Edinburgh University and now has accumulated 15 years of experience in plastic surgery. As part of his practice within the NHS Vivek specialised in both plastic and reconstructive breast surgery using microsurgical techniques and laser surgery. Vivek also focused on patients with severe facial acne scarring combining facial surgery and laser resurfacing to treat this condition. As part of his consultant duties during this time he was a member of the Clyde Combined Skin Cancer Multi-disciplinary Team.
