Did you know that any doctor in Australia (no matter what their training) can call themselves a “cosmetic surgeon”? It is astounding that there is no government legislation to prevent a doctor who has had no formal surgical training from calling themselves a surgeon and performing invasive procedures on patients who are often unaware of this legal technicality. Can you imagine taking an international flight and having a bus driver at the controls in the cockpit?
When choosing a surgeon you should ensure they have sufficient training to not only perform the procedure you need but also recognise and treat any potential complications that can arise.
The name “Specialist Plastic Surgeon” is reserved for only those surgeons who have undergone at least 4 years of advanced training in Plastic Surgery and has been rigorously tested in both knowledge and skill throughout that training.
How will you know?
