Dr. Tunc Tiryaki

Clinical Associate Professor

Dr. Tunc Tiryaki is a world-renowned plastic surgeon,

seeing his patients at Tiryaki Clinic Istanbul and operating at Cadogan Clinic London.

Dr. Tiryaki is a pioneer in stem cell assisted mini face-lifts that produce a younger but natural looking appearance with no visible scars. He is globally renowned for his minimally invasive procedures, particularly suspension techniques, micro-lifting, and regenerative cell injections to generate youth.

My experience with Mr. Tunc was excellent. I have suffered from a facial infection in August 2020, went though 5 operations with the NHS where doctors were trying to save my life. This experience left me with a substantial loss of volume on the right side of the face. Dr. Tunc and his team gave me confidence that the damage could be restored, he took his time to explain to me in full detail what the procedure entails as well as possible downsides. On the day of my surgery he explained everything regarding the operation which put me at ease. Recovery takes a couple of weeks, but outstanding results are totally worth it. Mr. Tunc is the master of his craft and I would recommend 100%.

A pioneer in the world of face-lifting, Dr. Tunc Tiryaki is a board-certified consultant plastic surgeon, driven by a desire to help his patients look – and feel – like the best version of themselves. Whether it’s slowing the early signs of ageing or rejuvenating a face that has fallen over time, he blends cutting-edge techniques with unparalleled expertise – for a bespoke yet minimally-invasive procedure that refreshes the face and enlivens the spirit.

As one of the few face-lift specialists in the UK, Dr. Tiryaki lectures around the world on his innovative methods. The son of Professor Dr. Demir Tiryaki, a professor of molecular biology, he is fascinated by fat-derived stem cells and harnesses their regenerative powers to create a more harmonious facial appearance. In combination with his own-developed micro-lifting and scar-less suspension techniques, the years are reversed, revealing a fresher face. Little wonder he was recognised as one of the best face-lift surgeons in the UK by Tatler magazine. However, his skill also lies in unravelling the psychological motivations and anxieties that patients experience when embarking upon a procedure. He counsels those under his care with humanity: emphasising the importance of doing something for oneself while empowering them to see their surgical journey as a positive chapter in their life. This revolutionary outlook sets him apart from conventional surgeons and Dr. Tiryaki is adamant that fighting against ageing is good for the soul: scientific data shows that when you appear younger, the brain behaves as if you are younger. Doing so switches back on the regenerative mechanisms within the body and accelerates its ability to heal – leading to long-lasting rejuvenation.

Dr Tiryaki has been leading a team of internationally acclaimed plastic surgeons at the pinnacle of the industry alongside biotechnology and genetic engineers from Harvard University to develop treatments and products in regenerative surgery and regenerative anti-ageing. Six years of research and development in the field of autologous stem cell therapies and exosomes has culminated in the development of revolutionary medical devices, as well as new-generation skincare and wound-healing products.  As an inventor and entrepreneur, he sits on several boards, including Lipocube Biomedicals, a medical device used for regenerative procedures which he helped invent, as well as Recure Cosmetics, a cord blood based skin care line.

An active member of several international surgical societies, Dr. Tiryaki splits his time between his native Istanbul and London, where he works from the Cadogan Clinic in Chelsea. He holds the position of Section Editor for the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Journal and has authored several internationally published publications on regenerative facelifts and micro-lifting, as well as the first medical textbook on inverse abdominoplasties. Dr. Tiryaki also sits on several advisory boards, including Mentor Breast Implants and Lipocube – a ground-breaking device that he helped invent. He is honoured to have received prestigious awards, such as the Young Surgeon Award from the Turkey Society of Plastic Surgery, Best Electronic Paper Award from the 2008 World Congress of ISAPS (International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) and Commended for Aesthetic Award 2021 in the category ‘Best Surgical Result’.

As a Clinical Associate Professor, Dr. Tiryaki is also passionate about imparting his knowledge to other doctors. In addition to instigating fellowship and observership programmes for young surgeons, he leads personal courses on face-lifting and chairs the London Regenerative Plastic Surgery Meeting. Dr. Tiryaki is the Chair of Humanitarian Programmes of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS). He co-founded the ISPEA-LEAP Disaster Relief Teams, which lead emergency rescue reconstructive surgery missions to earthquake-stricken corners of the globe. Furthermore, as a participant of Interplast Cleft Missions, he has travelled to Kazakhstan, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Syria, Sudan, and Jordan to administer life-changing surgeries for patients in need. This unwavering loyalty to patients everywhere (in combination with his desire to push the surgical boundaries and his unusually philosophical approach) is what makes Dr. Tiryaki unique. Forbes refers to him as “the surgeon to the stars”, but he is the surgeon for everyone.


Recognized by his peers and patients as one of the
most pre-eminent surgeons in the world

Dr. Tiryaki has been bestowed numerous awards and honours. He was elected as one of the best face-lift surgeons in the UK by Tatler magazine; furthermore, he has been widely covered by national/international media, like BBC, Forbes, Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, and many more.
