Patients who have surgery with us go to Cabrini Brighton Hospital which is located directly opposite Brighton Plastic Surgery, Holmesglen Private Hospital, located close by in South Road Moorabbin or Linacre Private Hospital, located close by in Linacre Road Hampton.


Our surgeons only work with fully qualified specialist anaesthetists who are experienced in plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures. Before your procedure your anaesthetist will visit you to answer any questions you may have and to examine you and ask you about your medical history.

Any anaesthetic carries risks. However, in the hands of qualified specialist anaesthetists these are minimised. Serious complications are not common and post operation side effects such as nausea are controlled.

During a general anaesthetic a patient is comfortably asleep. Smaller procedures can be performed under local anaesthetic with or without sedation. Your anaesthetist will explain their preference and discuss this with you.
