The Top 3 Plastic Surgeons in Canberra

Emily Morris 20 August 2019 42

Whether you are considering reconstructive or cosmetic plastic surgery, you want to be sure that you’re in safe hands. Deciding to get plastic surgery, choosing a surgeon, experiencing the procedure, and recovery are all aspects of a significant journey. It is crucial that you receive support throughout this journey from an appropriately qualified and compassionate medical team.

So how do you start the process of choosing a plastic surgeon? We have come up with some key points to consider when making this important decision.

What Makes a Good and Trusted Plastic Surgeon?

  • Qualifications. There is some confusion in the public about the difference between a plastic surgeon and a cosmetic surgeon. A plastic surgeon has twelve years of training, while a cosmetic surgeon only has a medical degree. A plastic surgeon can perform both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. Your plastic surgeon should have a Fellowship with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, Board of Plastic Surgery, and should be a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and/or the Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
  • Open and honest. You should feel comfortable that you understand what your procedure involves, and the results that you can expect. A Consent Form outlining the procedure should be made available to you. Be clear on what will happen in the recovery period, and any risks and complications that may arise.
  • Compassion. Having surgery, or even a nonsurgical procedure, can make you feel vulnerable. Qualified and experienced doctors will be happy to answer any of your concerns with patience and regard for your feelings.
  • No pressure. If you feel pressure at any time to undergo a procedure, take some time out to consider your options. It may be a good idea to get a second or third opinion. Special deals or limited-time offers are designed to increase pressure on the consumer, and are not an appropriate form of marketing for plastic surgery.
  • Cost. Plastic surgery does not come cheap. Ensure you are aware of the total cost of the procedure including the anesthetist, aftercare services, and any specialist cosmetic products you may want to purchase as part of your post-operative care.
  • Aftercare service. Complications may occur during recovery. You want to feel confident that you can contact your surgeon or a team member if you have any concerns post-surgery. A good surgeon is happy for you to contact them at any time after hours, if it is an emergency.

My friend had a horrific outcome with rhinoplasty (“nose-job”) surgery in Canberra. It is essential that anyone considering this type of surgery consults a facial specialist in Sydney or Melbourne, not someone in Canberra who does all types of surgeries. Rhinoplasty expertise just does not exist in Canberra and the risks are appalling. Having “FRACS” after your name is no guarantee of a great outcome.

In my opinion Dr. Ali Hussain is the best. He is highly competent and very approachable.

breast reduction, with the hope one day I can see my toes

If you go down this path please let us know how it goes. I have a friend in her late 50s with extremely large bosoms who is considering the same procedure for the same reasons of discomfort, back pain etc.

Too be honest, I was surprised when she mentioned this, and I’d be sad to see them go. But it all became pretty clear when she asked me to imagine spending my entire life with two large water filled balloons strapped to my chest.

I had mine done several years ago and I have not regretted it one bit. Aside from the crippling back pain there are so many other things that affect you as well. At the time I had mine done two other friends also had theirs done and we were all really happy with the results and much improved quality of life afterwards. Had mine done in Sydney though so I am afraid I can’t provide recommendations.

Oh and for the dingbats who thing that losing weight will help, get a grip on something other than your dicks. I lost 20kgs and did not go down a bit in bra size and there are many women out there with this same issue who are not overweight so please crawl back into your caves now.

Dr Taylor at the CAPS Clinic is great, his staff and the facilities onsite are amazing.

Alaistar Taylor at CAPS is good.

Make sure that anyone who gets a scalpel near you has “(FRACS)” after their name – this means they are a qualified surgeon.

Allistar Taylor… after experiencing a bad surgeon and needing to get things fixed I definitely recommend Allistar.. amazing

I had my reduction in Sydney with Dr Mark Goyen at ALIA Clinic (http://www.aliaclinic.com.au/liposculpture-breasts.html). I know you asked about Canberra, but there is one reason you might consider this option.

A traditional reduction is reconstructive – your breast is really cut and put back together again. You’re limited in what you can do in terms of lifting your arms and lifting weight for a good six months after. I was a single mother with a toddler when I had mine reduced, so that kind of limitation was not an option. ALIA clinic, however, uses a modified keyhole liposuction technique. The result is not as “pretty” (think, well, sag) but the weight and bulk is gone. You’re in and out within hours, and just need to take it easy for a few days. For lifestyles that simply don’t allow for reconstructive surgery, it’s an alternative.

Dr Alan Ferguson removed a cancer from the inner part of my eyelid years ago and left no scar, and a few years later I went to him for other surgery – he’s absolutely incredible and will tell you clearly what can and can’t be done and what the result will look like.

My dad had a cancer removed at the CAPPS clinic and ended up with a really horrible scar on the side of his face.

OP I must ask – are you a ‘bigger’ sized chick? Does your stomach hang out more than your breasts? Cause if so plastic surgery is not the answer. Get on the treadmill and work it! You’ll drop weight and a few sizes off your breasts, win win situation (to the people that don’t think that’ll work – You are very wrong!). No offence, it is just that I have heard alot of overweight chicks saying they want a plastic surgery cause their boobs are too big when other things are bigger.

Oh man I just read what I typed and it makes me cringe.

Man I wish I never typed that. I feel like a prick – apologies, I’ve had too many Ales. Sorry for any offence caused.

I am not a chauvinist – honest!

no worries

There may be some merit in what matt says. My wife put on a bit of weight after we were married. She decided to lose that weight and return to her pre-marriage size (onya, sweetheart!), and warned me at the start that the first thing that would happen is that her boobs would shrink. She’s about half way there, and her boobs have indeed shrunk, not that I care.

On the other hand, my friend mentioned in the other post here is a fairly slim person with huge boobs. Not that I’ve noticed. She showed me a bikini shot from when she was in her 20’s and did a tabloid newspaper “page 3” photo shoot, and she looked eye-popping. The “weight loss equals boob reduction” idea just wouldn’t work for her.

Another one for Tony Tonks’ handiwork – a friend had a reduction and was delighted. In the meantime, try an “Enell” bra (you can get them online) for exercising.

Not always true – I’m from a family with sizeable assets and no amount of exercise reduced the size of my sister’s chest (much to her disappointment!). And as other posters have mentioned, what does one do when they are already slim? Are You Advocating Eating Disorders Too? (agree qbngeek, that typing is not at all easy)

jenny123, it would appear the resident genius wants you to save your money and ‘be happy with’ the back pain, discomfort, the ill-fitting clothing and bras and the unpleasant ogling from strangers.

BTW, How Do You Manage To Type Every Word With An Initial Capital. It Is Really Annoying To Do And Worse To Read. Going to stop doing it now, my Pinky is hurting form the [Shift] key. It is really not required and just makes your posts look stupid(er)

+1
I think that mixing upper and lower case while typing actually looks MORE stupid.
But not by much.

They categorise things not worth reading.

If sentence case represents a normal speaking tone and all caps represents shouting, what does title case represent? I imagine it’s a patronising tone.
