What is a Plastic Surgeon?

Plastic surgery is a surgical speciality. It’s all about cleverly restoring, reconstructing and altering the human body in response to injuries. It is also about fixing cosmetic problems that are making a

person feel self-conscious or affecting their confidence. Reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery are very different. Reconstructive surgery uses techniques like craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery and burn treatment to solve patients’ problems, and cosmetic surgery is more about creating beauty, adjusting a healthy person’s appearance for aesthetic reasons.  

Plastic surgeons repair and reconstruct missing and damaged tissue and skin to fix serious physical defects. Plastic surgery also acts to improve a patient’s confidence, self-esteem and quality of life simply because it renews the normal function of a damaged or missing area or tissues. While appearance is obviously an issue, it isn’t the focus of the surgery. It’s used to repair things like cleft lips and palates, webbed toes or fingers, unsightly birthmarks, cancer scars, burn scars and other serious injuries.  

When should you see a Plastic Surgeon?

If an injury has caused visible physical damage, a plastic surgeon can help. But time is of the essence. If it’s a condition suffered by a child, for example a cleft palate at birth, getting it fixed quickly means you don’t get more problems arising as the child grows.

Your doctor or surgeon might recommend you see a plastic surgeon in Australia, maybe after an operation, illness or accident that has left you without full functionality. When everyday life has become painful, challenging or difficult, a plastic surgeon can restore, reconstruct or alter your condition so you get your functionality back and lead a normal life again.  

How to find and choose the best Plastic Surgeon in Australia?

It’s easy to identify the perfect Australia plastic surgeon on Doctify because real patients are encouraged to leave genuine reviews. Then there are Doctify’s popular filters, designed to let you pin down the surgeons who provide same day appointments, are easiest for you to travel to, or are rated highest by people like you. All this saves you time, worry and hassle at a juncture in your life when you really want everything to be super-smooth and simple.

How much does a private Plastic Surgeon appointment cost in Australia?

The cost depends on how experienced the chosen Melbourne surgeon is, your condition, how long your appointment is, and how complicated or straightforward your case is. It’s always a good idea to check first, referring to the surgeon’s website to find their pricing structure. You can also just give the surgery a call and ask them what it’ll cost. They’re always happy to help.

What happens at a Plastic Surgeon appointment?

The best plastic surgeons spend time on you. They’ll take a detailed medical history first to establish any lifestyle issues that could affect your condition or the treatment offered. They’ll find out all about your problem and make sure they understand exactly how your everyday life is being inhibited. They’ll also check any previous treatment you’ve had before making their recommendations for plastic surgery, or for another kind of treatment if it makes more sense under your circumstances.  

What conditions do Plastic Surgeons treat?

Sticky-out ears are a common issue fixed by plastic surgery, as is dealing with post-operation scars to make them less obvious, mending cleft lips and palates, and getting rid of ugly birthmarks, also called vascular anomalies.
