Meet Mr Yelland

Mr Yelland is a highly experienced surgeon who has spent literally decades studying the art and science of cosmetic surgery.

Andrew Yelland Consultant Aesthetic & Reconstructive Surgeon specialising in Transgender procedures in Devon

Mr Yelland received his MB BS from the University of London (St. George's Hospital) in 1986, and trained in the highly regarded breast reconstructive units of St. George's Hospital, The Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford and Royal Marsden Hospitals in London and Sutton.

Pursuing his interest in cosmetic surgery and breast reconstruction, Mr Yelland traveled to Atlanta, Georgia in the USA to study at Emory University, whose Plastic and Reconstructive Unit is known for its pioneering efforts in breast reconstruction and new endoscopic plastic surgical techniques.

Mr Yelland was appointed as Lead Consultant in Breast Surgery at Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust in 1996 and remained with the trust until 2012. During this time he further developed his interest in cosmetic and related onco-plastic procedures.


He spent 1990 - 1991 at St. George's Hospital Medical School and Charing Cross Hospital Medical School investigating the role of growth factors in breast cancer. As a result of this work he was awarded a Master of Surgery degree from the University of London.

In 1991 he became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh and in 2001 a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.


Today Mr Yelland is a full-time Consultant Breast Onco-plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon and his practice covers Conwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Whilshire, Bristol and London.
