Dr Cotrufo is an exceptional plastic surgeon. His outstanding skills and expertise extend far beyond the specialism of cosmetic surgery, which is why I am now travelling from Scotland to his Harley Street Clinic, London, for treatment.
I first met him in 2016 when he worked as a Consultant in plastic surgery at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary (ARI). I was transferred by air ambulance after a very serious road traffic accident in which, as a pedestrian, I had become trapped between 2 cars. I sustained a severe crush injury to my right leg with massive circumferential soft tissue loss and open 3b proximal tibia and fibula fracture. The severity of my injury meant there was a considerable risk of amputation and presented both the Orthopaedic and Plastics teams with significant challenges which culminated in limb salvage surgery in a combined 15 hour operation. The Plastics side of this operation was led by Mr Cotrufo. When my case was presented to him prior to surgery, it had been considered from the Plastics side that my leg could not be saved. However by soft tissue coverage using a local rotational flap (part of my calf muscle), as well as a free flap transfer from my left thigh to my lower right leg, he found a way to restore the vascular supply to enable my leg to be saved. After surgery I remained in hospital for 6 weeks, the first half of this in ARI, and the second half in a hospital nearer my home town when I was placed under the care of Consultants at Glasgow Royal Infirmary (GRI). I initially progressed very well. Unfortunately my recovery was long and protracted due to the internal fixation in my leg progressively failing requiring an external frame to be fitted, almost 1 year after my initial injury. This was another complex operation which again presented significant challenges for Orthopaedic and Plastics teams as it required areas beneath flaps to be accessed to remove broken metalwork. It was explained to me that because I’d had a particularly nasty injury, the ends of my bone had been stripped of blood supply at the outset resulting in them being unable to heal properly. 17 months after my initial injury my fracture had finally healed and the external frame removed. In total I had required more than 22 hours of orthopaedic and plastic surgery and I continued with my extensive physiotherapy sessions which lasted 33 months. My sincere gratitude extends to everyone involved in my recovery through our incredible NHS, particularly at ARI and GRI, without whom I would not be as I am today.
Although my free flap has been complimented by medics, I wanted it reduced in volume so I could fit better into everyday clothes and feel better about myself. Debulking was not an option through the NHS. In January 2019, I met with Dr Cotrufo at his London Clinic to discuss what, if anything, my options were. He explained that debulking the free flap may be possible using VASER Liposuction, what the risks involved in this procedure were and how these can be reduced as my vascular supply cannot be compromised. He was also clear on what my outcome could realistically be so as to manage my expectations. Firstly I required a CT scan to determine if a reduction was possible. It was good news, the CT scan showed it could be done. So now, more than 3 years after my initial injury, I am attending Dr Cotrufo’s Clinic to progress matters. My treatment is being done very gradually in a staged approach of VASER Liposuction to reduce risk to my vascular supply, whilst also using Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections 4 to 6 weeks before and after each procedure (the PRP injections are to encourage vascular growth). I have now completed the first session of VASER Liposuction which was undertaken in Harley Health Village hospital. I am very pleased with the results so far. My best chance of a successful outcome is with him, which is why I am travelling from Scotland to London for this treatment.
I cannot recommend Dr Cotrufo highly enough.

Dr Stefano Cotrufo was remarkable throughout. My surgery was a 3rd revision septorhinoplasty which I discussed with Stefano for a year before undertaking the procedure. I had a number of major concerns around fixing what was quite a agravated breathing problem but also altering the shape and appearance of my nose as a result of the required procedure.
Dr. Stefano listened and advised in great detail over the year that we discussed my case in order to arrive at a sugery plan that we were both comfortable with. The case itself was extremely challenging in that 1) revision Septorhinoplasty is probably the most difficult procedure in cosmetic plastic surgery; a 3rd revision, due to the amount of scar tissue, is the highest level of complexity and there are very few surgeons who can perform this in the UK and Europe 2) Stefano achieved an outstanding improvement of breathing function, nose shape and facial balance that looks extremely natural.
Even on the day of my surgery I was able to breathe much better and six weeks on (as I write this) with at least 85% of the swelling gone, the breathing continues to improve and the cosmetic result is also very pleasing.
I am extremely picky about quality and my looks (as we all probably are when it comes to such a central feature as one’s nose) but I cannot recommend Dr Cotrufo highly enough. My daughter has a similar issue and I will absolutely be using Stefano for her case too.
Impeccably friendly, professional and caring too as are his staff.

Very pleased with the result and after care
I recently had a Bbl and buttocks implants done by Dr Cotrufo. I’m so impressed with the results and Dr Cotrufo’s team, the Dr Cotrufo himself and his assistant, Wiesje especially. They made me feel very comfortable. The whole experience was exceptional.
Due to my personal physiology, I suffered some excessive swelling especially in my legs, but Dr Cotrufo’s team has been communicating with me everyday, even on Sundays. The Doctor answered my texts straight away and checked on me regularly giving clear instructions and reassurances.
After care for Bbl surgery is extremely important and it felt working with a partner through the difficult first 2 weeks of the process.
I followed Dr Cotrufo’s advice precisely and step by step, as he was making sure I get the best results. This required a lot of post op appointments despite him been very busy. He always made sure to accommodate me in his schedule which made my experience a lot easier.
He is not only an excellent experienced doctor but his team are caring and a helpful guide for the patient every step of the way

Amazing !! I have had services with Doctor Cotrfuo- breast augmentation , lip enhancement and minimal Botox injection … and he always keeps me looking who I am but just “ better” as I am all for the natural look while enhancing what I have in a very subtle natural way.
He is by far one of the best if your looking to boost natural beauty from the outside in:)

I chose an initial consultation with Dr Cotrufo because he came highly recommended by friends who had used him previously for the same procedure. I chose to do my tummy tuck and vaser lipo with him because I felt reassured. I was really happy with the whole service provided – from initial consultation, the hospital care and post surgery consultations. I found Dr Cotrufo to be very warm, kind, patient, attentive and engaging- answering all my questions until I fully understood and was able to make confident decisions about my procedures.
Both Dr Cotrufo and his secretary Wiesje were always at the end of the phone following my procedure, ensuring I was recuperating, keeping mobile and hydrated and had no concerns. The after service they provided was impeccable and I never felt alone – Kindness and concern goes a long way!
I’m 6 weeks post surgery; very happy with the results and would recommend him always.

It’s helpful to have a provider who is thorough both in the office visit and the follow up contact. I’ve already recomended to friends and family.
Helped me a lot
Not only was I having problems with my vision but my eyes were also itchy, irritated and red. They treated for dry eyes and my eyes feel great!
The hours are great, and I didn’t have to wait long, what I also like about your office is that you are up-to-date with state-of the-art equipment.
My shape is perfect!
They gave me much more than health – they gave me my life back. One that I can still enjoy with my family and my children.
A good word means a lot
It’s always the word of mouth that’s the best advice. Here are some of ours client testimonials.
Nose Reshaping. For years I was unhappy with the shape of my nose. I had damaged it as a child and it was never looked at. Meeting Dr Cotrufo made the decision to have it reshaped very easy. He explained everything in great detail, he drew out what he was trying to achieve and made me feel very comfortable with the decision I had made. A fantastic guy who I would recommend to anyone who was in need of a brilliant surgeon, doctor and person.I really love this place. Dr. Cotrufo is so personable. Her staff is friendly and knowledgeable and I feel so comfortable coming here! Thank you! Nik M
I came to see Dr. Cotrufo following a very warm recommendation from two of my friends who had the same Botox treatments. Dr. Cotrufo was extremely professional yet so nice and helpful, not only during the procedure but with his caring follow-up checks. Most importantly, I couldn’t be happier with the results and the feedback I’ve been getting since the treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Cotrufo for Botox and other plastic treatments. Yael Koch
Dr Cotrufo has reshaped my nose for me, after sitting and discussing the issue with him, he was very understanding and explained everything clearly he visually showed me what he was planning on doing which made it easier for me as a patient and in turn made it more comforting. He was really friendly and maintained professional throughout our meetings. I would really recommend Dr Cotrufo to those who require a surgeon, he was absolutely brilliant. Juned Ahmed
