A surgeon and former television presenter will be talking about the benefits of reconstructive plastic surgery at a sell-out event later this month.

Rozina Ali, who lives in Norwich's Golden Triangle, is a consultant plastic surgeon at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital specialising in microvascular reconstructive surgery.

She will be giving a TEDx talk at Royal Holloway, University of London, this Saturday on the theme of 'lives changed' and the benefits of reconstructive surgery.

She said: 'Reconstructive surgery can help rebuild people who have undergone severe trauma or help people make smaller changes to live with a new altered and improved self.

'I feel really honoured to have been asked to give this TEDx talk at the Royal Holloway and I'm delighted that it's sold out so quickly. I'm passionate about communicating what I do as a surgeon, and just how far-reaching an impact reconstructive plastic surgery can have, both physically and psychologically.'
