How Do I Find a Good Plastic Surgeon?

Choosing the right surgeon is critical in ensuring you get the best possible outcome in terms of not only your results, but support, communication, and post-operative care, too.

There are several steps we encourage prospective patients to take when it comes to choosing a plastic surgeon in Melbourne.

Naturally, we encourage you to do your research and ensure that the plastic surgeon you choose has the right experience and training.

There are five letters you need to look out for: FRACS. FRACS stands for Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. This distinction is only awarded to plastic surgeons who complete a minimum of 12 years medical and surgical education, as well as at least five years of specialist training.

Brighton Plastic Surgery’s surgeons are all Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

Our surgeons believe that the best type of patient is one who is well-informed and educated. As such, we encourage you to be open and honest when you speak with us.

In return, we promise to be honest, transparent, and realistic, too. Plastic surgeons can never guarantee results, but what they can do is offer complete transparency and respect when it comes to discussing your goals as well as the specific procedure.

You should feel that you can trust your surgeon and can have an open dialogue with them.

Your plastic surgery journey doesn’t end the moment your procedure is complete.

Your recovery is just as important as the procedure itself. Your plastic surgeon should ensure you understand all the steps required following surgery, including advice and guidance around sleeping, bathing, when activities or exercise can resume, post-operative appointments, and more.

While you must take responsibility for your own health and recovery, your surgeon also plays a part by providing complete support following surgery to allow your body to rest and to minimise any risks.
