Dr Taylor graduated at Otago Medical School and completed his training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Burwood Hospital in Christchurch in 1982. He then worked overseas in Canada, Scotland, Saudi Arabia and England.

Since Dr Taylor’s return to New Zealand in 1986 he has worked solely in private practice. His clinics are based in Auckland and Nelson.

Dr Taylor is renowned for his local anaesthetic facial surgery and is largely responsible for making this breakthrough in cosmetic surgery more than 15 years ago. He also pioneered laser skin surgery in New Zealand.

'Natural' is at the heart of Dr Taylor’s philosophy, from your initial consultation through to your procedure and postoperative care. Dr Taylor prides himself on listening to every one of his patients, understanding the result they would like to achieve and providing honest advice and professional expertise.

The aim of surgery is to make people look better not different.

Dr Taylor states “Good plastic surgery is defined by looking so natural that no one is able to tell that the patient has had an operation”.
