I am Adam Greenbaum. Welcome to my web site!

I qualified in medicine in 1987, so I have been doing this for quite some time. I am a Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgeon working in Private Practice. My practice covers the North Waikato and South Auckland. I operate in Pukekohe and central Auckland.

Born in London, I married a Kiwi and after our children were born, we moved the family here to New Zealand. I proudly became a Kiwi in 2015. Before emigrating, I was in private practice in Harley Street, London and I held NHS consultant posts in the southeast London teaching hospital group comprising King’s College, Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals.

I am Board Certified in both the UK and Europe and I am Vocationally Registered with the Medical Council of New Zealand as a Specialist Plastic Surgeon. I am a member of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons and an International Member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.


I run my private practice so as to give my patients a very personalised service – treating you the way I would wish my family or myself to be treated by a surgeon – so whether you are seeking advice on skin cancer; or optimising your skin’s appearance; wanting treatment with Botox or fillers; or considering surgery for breast enlargement, reduction or “lifting”; a “tummy tuck”, eyelid reduction or a face lift; my aim is always to provide you with the best service and expert care possible.

Most of the people in my team have worked with me for a decade since I set up shop in Pukekohe; we like each other, we work well as a team and we care about our patients. The nurses who work with me have decades of specialist plastic surgery knowledge on which to draw as they care for you. The administrative staff and healthcare assistants likewise have worked with me for years and share my passion for friendly expert care.

This web site may be the first example you have of the service our team provides and of how I, in particular, talk to and try to educate my patients so as to empower them to make informed decisions about their care. I have written each page of this site and I revise and update the site regularly, so I hope that you find it all helpful and informative, and that it will encourage you to come and meet me for a consultation if you feel I might be able to help you
