Dr Nick Koutroumanos

My practice philosophy, be it in functional, cosmetic or trauma eyelid surgery, is centred around the natural rehabilitation of the periocular area. Meticulously and individually planned, conservative interventions designed to remain true to personal facial characteristics.



Eyelid Surgery

Successful outcomes in all facial surgery are those which underscore one’s own personality and beauty with freshness and youthfulness, but without signs of surgery. This is achieved by taking on cases where patient expectations are fully aligned with what is likely to result in their intended outcomes.

I strongly believe that any rejuvenating or restorative facial intervention should above all uphold the expression characteristics which make us who we are. For this reason, a less-is-more approach underpins my treatment philosophy.

Dr Nick Koutroumanos

Dr Nick Koutroumanos is a London-based Ophthalmic & Oculoplastic surgeon, with particular subspecialty expertise in ophthalmic plastic & reconstructive eyelid, orbital and lacrimal surgery. His private practice, based at The Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth in St John’s Wood complements his work in charge of a large NHS oculoplastics practice at the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead.

A qualified senior trainer and Royal College Examiner in ophthalmic plastic surgery, cataract surgery and general ophthalmology, he runs an Oculoplastics Fellowship training programme that is highly sought-after by both UK and international candidates.


Oculoplastic, Lacrimal and Orbital Disease

Dr Nick Koutroumanos trained in Ophthalmology at the world-leading Moorfields Eye Hospital in London. His rigorous seven-year training programme prepared him to provide medical and surgical care for all aspects of the eye and has worked exclusively in the field of ophthalmic plastic surgery since 2014. His functional oculoplastics practice in London looks after thousands of adult and paediatric patients annually, presenting with developmental, ageing or injury related eyelid and eye socket deformities or cancer, watery or dry eyes.

He was attracted to the life of exclusively oculoplastic work by the need for absolute precision, because even the slightest error can have lasting consequences on a child’s development or an adult’s self-esteem. Balancing functionality and aesthetics is another key goal in oculoplastic surgery. Dr Koutroumanos stresses the importance of ensuring the eyes’ safety while maximising function, symmetry and beauty, always staying true to individuals’ facial characteristics.

Kind Words from Our Patients


A true perfectionist

Words are not enough to express my sincere gratitude for the care and dedication Dr Koutroumanos put into my journey. I felt safe and secure in his hands. This is someone who truly cares about outcome and ethics of practice. A true perfectionist. I would not hesitate to wholeheartedly recommend him.

100% worth it

I had surgery a few days ago with Dr Koutroumanos for congenital ptosis. It’s early days but I don’t think it’s too early to say the results will be life changing for me in terms of confidence levels. I struggled at school due to the condition and have learnt to live with it – that is until I saw the doctor who was reassuring from the start and has just done the best job. 100% worth it and amazing to know I was in such safe hands. I can’t thank him enough.

I’m really happy with my results

I’ve recently had a brow lift and blepharoplasty with Mr N Koutroumanos. The whole process from start to finish was handled professionally and each process was very informative. I’m still at the recovery stage, so far I’m really happy with my results. Highly recommend using Mr N Koutroumanos services.
