Find comfort in knowing we are specialist plastic surgeons


A highly qualified plastic surgeon is not at all the same as a cosmetic surgeon. Many people are surprised to learn that there is often a vast difference in skill and prerequisits between the two.

After completing a medical degree, graduate doctors must undertake a further eight to twelve years of specialist surgical training and sit a series of rigorous exams in order to be invited to become a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS). Only then do they gain recognition as fully qualified specialist plastic and reconstructive surgeons.

In contrast, any doctor in Australia with a basic medical degree and a current registration can refer to themselves as a cosmetic surgeon.

Given that ‘cosmetic surgery’ is a useful description for some procedures, we understand that this terminology can be quite confusing. If you are considering cosmetic surgery, find confidence in knowing our plastic surgeons are recognised industry specialists. Their additional years of medical training have allowed each of our surgeons to master an array of techniques, across a range of procedures, giving them the necessary skills and expertise to perform plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery in Australia.
