When did you start practicing in Cosmetic Medicine?

I’ve been practicing since 2007 with a special interest in Liposculpture, Tummy Tucks and Facial Thread Lifting.

Are there special qualifications needed to be a Cosmetic Physician or can any Doctor perform these procedures?

Yes, specific training is required to perform Cosmetic Surgery. As a member of the Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery and the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia, I am also required to continue my knowledge and training to keep up with the latest medical and scientific advances in my field. This means my patients are assured of the best treatment at all times.

What other procedures do you perform, apart from Liposculpture?

There are many others such as wrinkle reduction injections, injection of non-permanent dermal fillers and sclerotherapy for the treatment of leg veins and cosmetic laser procedures for facial rejuvenation. Other popular treatments, such as Laser Resurfacing and Collagen Induction help to reduce the signs of aging on the face.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

Not so very long ago it was the common wisdom to accept what you were given with good grace and smile bravely, even if it made you feel miserable! That especially applied to your appearance. If there was a blemish or disfigurement, slight or obvious, it was seen as your lot in life to just rise above it. These days we are extremely lucky that science has proven therapeutic procedures to treat this impressive list of cosmetic imperfections. Helping someone feel good within their own skin is my main drive to do my work. When a client comes away feeling more confident and happy within themselves, I consider it a privilege to have helped them along their journey.
