On 7th July I attended my first Diamond Awards for Safety in Beauty, one of the most prestigious awards events in UK aesthetics and plastic surgery. It really focuses on patient safety, quality of outcomes, patient feedback and overall performance as a clinician.
I was very honoured to have been nominated in the category of Best Cosmetic Surgeon (I have been told it was by a colleague and two patients, but I am not allowed to know who!), and it was a great evening catching up with friends and colleagues, as well as a very glamorous event in itself.
With colleagues Naveen Cavale, Miles Berry and Nilesh Sojitra
I was even more surprised on the night to have my name read out as one of those to have been Highly Commended (although they did spell Marc with a “k”!). A big congratulations to my friend and colleague Taimur Shouaib who won on the night – a very worthy winner!
The nominees are announced…and a nervous wait to see who won!
The evening raised many thousands of pounds for charity and is something I was very privileged to have been part of. Well done to Antonia Mariconda who organised the event and runs the non-for profit Safety in Beauty campaign.
With the evening’s surgical winner, Taimur Shouaib
