Dr. Ian S. Little

Doctor

Dr. Ian S. Little

Over the last 30 years, Dr. Little has become one of New Zealand's most experienced practitioners in Appearance Medicine and the treatment of varicose veins, a speciality he practices full time.

After completing his medical training in Dundee, Scotland, Dr Little worked in many countries in a variety of specialities, his initial vocational speciality was in Family Medicine. This may be responsible for the great empathy he has with his patients. He arrived in New Zealand in 1988 and settled in family medicine in Wanganui. However, through his work in London for a group of Harley Street cosmetic surgeons he had developed an interest in procedural medicine and in particular, cosmetic medicine. He is one of the first doctors to introduce collagen injections for wrinkle treatment and lip enhancement and one of the first, if not the first, to perform botulinum toxin treatments in New Zealand. It is an area of medicine he finds very "positive and rewarding". "I get tremendous enjoyment from my work because people are grateful for what I do - It's like you are giving them something really special". Appearance medicine greatly enhances the options for those seeking an improved appearance. Ian trains nurses to perform cosmetic injectables and spends more of his time now on procedural phlebology- the treatment of varicose veins.

Dr Little is a fellow of the Australasian College of Phlebology, he attends many national and international conferences and workshops to keep him updated on latest thinking and techniques. His expertise in varicose vein treatment is recognised and covered by all major health insurers in New Zealand. (Medical criteria in each individual needs to be met for prior approval of treatment)
