An experienced aesthetic surgeon, Mr Ion trained in both Europe and the UK. He received his medical degree from the University of Bucharest and started his general and plastic surgical training in Paris where he studied in several prestigious hospitals.

He continued his training in Britain and passed the examinations to become a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS). His advanced training in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery was completed in central London plastic surgery units covering all the aspects of the specialty. This training included a fellowship in aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery at The Wellington Hospital in London.

Once his training was complete, Mr Ion successfully passed both the Intercollegiate Board exam in plastic surgery and the European Board exam in the specialty, and was included on the Register of Medical Specialists of the General Medical Council, under the entry, plastic surgery.

In 2000 he was appointed to the position of Consultant Plastic Surgeon at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, where Mr Ion was actively involved in the multidisciplinary management of skin malignancies as well with general plastic surgery, reconstructive procedures and post-bariatric surgery body contouring. In July 2012 Mr Ion retired from NHS practice to dedicate his time to aesthetic surgery and associated treatments in full-time private practice.


Mr Ion is regularly lecturing in national and international meetings on topics related to aesthetic surgery treatments, and sharing his experience and vision of progress in this field for improved patient outcomes and satisfaction.

He is also regularly attending aesthetic surgery and medicine meetings to identify best practices from around the world and make them available for his patients.
