A plastic surgery Adelaidet who has completed extensive training often over 10 years after medical school, and can be recognised by the letters FRACS (Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in Plastic Surgery) or FACS (Facility Accredited Specialist). GPs or specialists may refer patients to them for cosmetic procedures, but patients are free to see them privately too.
A private consultation can take upto 1 hour, during which your surgeon will listen to what you want from your treatment and make a full clinical examination. A thorough discussion of your options will follow, including the potential risks and complications, although these are rarely serious. Computer imaging is often used, particularly for rhinoplasty and breast augmentation consultations to enable the patient to visualise the outcome of their surgery.
