With this in mind, the following policies will be in place when attending Adelaide Plastic Surgery. These have been formulated to best protect you as the patient, as well as our staff and others visiting the practice.

Patient Vaccination Status

As a practice it is our preference that all patients be fully vaccinated, however at this stage, Adelaide Plastic Surgery will continue to provide a service to all patients regardless of their vaccination status.

Telehealth Appointments

Where suitable, we encourage patients to have Telehealth consultations and/or review appointments. Please let us know when booking your appointment if you are open to this option, and one of our team members will determine if this option is appropriate for your particular surgical needs. 

Dermal Treatments

We remind you that as a practice we require patients to wait a minimum of 2 weeks before and two weeks after their COVID-19 vaccination for any dermal treatments with our nurses. This is in line with the recommendations of the Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
