Mr Cheung was born and brought up in Birmingham, UK.
He graduated from the University of Bristol Medical School with a both a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacology in 1991 and a Bachelor of Medicine degree in 1994.
Mr Cheung has numerous postgraduate qualifications including being a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and a Fellow of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in London.
He has been an ophthalmologist since 1996 and has subspecialised in oculoplastic surgery since 2003 after completing two subspecialty training fellowships in the highly renowned oculoplastic teaching centres of Leicester and Moorfields Eye Hospital in London.
He is recognised locally and nationally as an expert in eyelid and oculofacial surgery.
Oculoplastic surgeons, unlike general plastic surgeons, do not perform general cosmetic work, for example, breast enlargement/reduction, chin implantation, rhinoplasty.
Because Mr Cheung's work is solely confined to the specialised plastic surgery of the delicate structures around the eye, upper face and midface, he is able to address many of the potential problems and avoid/treat the potential complications which can occur, thus offering a dedicated oculofacial service unlike most general plastic surgeons.
Mr Cheung is a medical student trainer for the University of Birmingham Medical School, junior doctor trainer for the West Midlands Deanery in Ophthalmology and Oculoplastics and an examiner for the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.
Mr Cheung, above all is known for his artistic, holistic and meticulous approach to facial cosmetic surgery. He prides himself on being able to consult his patients in an informal, relaxed, honest and approachable manner. It is because of his down to earth personality and the expertise offered that patients repeatedly request to see him.
