Miss Tania Cubison is one of a very small number of female plastic surgeons in the South East of England, specialising in cosmetic surgery, scar revision, tattoo removal,
burn care and amputation revision.
Miss Cubison is based at the Queen Victoria Hospital at East Grinstead and also works at the McIndoe Centre, a private hospital on the same site. She is a fully accredited Consultant Plastic Surgeon, a member of The British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) and was awarded the McGregor Gold Medal in her FRCS (Plast) examination.
As a plastic surgeon, Tania offers a wide range of procedures including breast reduction and augmentation (including 3D imaging), abdominoplasty, post weight loss surgery, labial reduction and pinnaplasty, as well as minor surgery for skin lesions. With her specialist interest in burn care, scar revision and trauma reconstruction, Tania is able to offer a range of procedures from skin grafting to complex microsurgical techniques, especially for lower limb injury, including secondary stump revision.
She has considerable experience in acute burn care and secondary burn scar reconstruction, and can therefore often help with improving the appearance of scarring and resurfacing, this includes the removal of tattoos using similar techniques to those used in her acute burn injury patients. Tania is the Clinical Lead in Paediatric Burns at the Queen Victoria Hospital. She has undertaken a number of studies to evaluate burn healing, and in using many new techniques that may help reduce scarring.
Tania is very involved in teaching burn care, and is on the Emergency Management of Severe Burns Senate – part of the British Burn Association. Miss Cubison is actively involved in the training of the next generation of plastic surgeons, and is a member of the national Specialist Advisory Committee (SAC) for Plastic Surgery Training. She is the SAC representative on the Training Interface Group in Major Trauma,
working to train a multi-disciplinary group of consultants who will lead Trauma Care into the future.
Having had two children whilst in surgical training, she is very aware of the issues that female surgeons face, and is currently the member of the SAC responsible for less than full-time trainees in plastic surgery nationally.
