Mr Nikhil Maini

Consultant Maxillofacial Surgeon

I completed my Oral and Maxillofacial training in the UK.  I am certified as a specialist by the General Medical Council.  I trained at East Grinstead, Brighton and Eastbourne.  I have degrees in medicine and dentistry from the University of Glasgow.  I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and a Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgeons of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

During my higher training, I developed a particular interest in jaw surgery, skin surgery and facial trauma.

I first became interested in facial feminisation surgery six years ago because of my mentorship by Keith Altman.  Mr Altman has an international reputation for his expertise in facial feminisation surgery.  I have been mentored by Mr Altman over the years to his high standards in all aspects of facial feminisation surgery.


I hold NHS Consultant appointments at Brighton, East Grinstead and Eastbourne.  Brighton is a major trauma centre where I maintain my interest in maxillofacial trauma.  Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead is an internationally renowned specialist hospital where my main practice is orthognathic jaw surgery.  I operate on facial skin cancers requiring reconstruction at Eastbourne Hospital which is the UK's second busiest maxillofacial unit for skin surgery.
