Plastic surgery: a life's work

Dr Ian Jackson, a world leader in craniofacial and reconstructive surgery, reflects on the developments of plastic surgery and the effects it has on patients.

Through his own professional influences and experience Dr Ian Jackson, one of Scotland’s most celebrated surgeons, reflects on the outstanding contribution made by Scottish surgeons and their trainees to the development of plastic surgery.

From his early career in Scotland, working with giants such as Jack Tough, Tom Gibson, Jack Mustardé and Ian McGregor, a ‘golden period’ when Canniesburn Hospital in Glasgow was one of the world centres of plastic surgery, to the latest international developments in plastic surgery today.

Dr Jackson will discuss the bravery of his patients, including his Peruvian born adopted son ‘my boy David’ and share his excitement for plastic surgery showing how it can change lives, sometimes save lives, and most times bring happiness to patients.
