In Australia, any doctor may perform surgery without being trained in surgery and not holding specialist recognition as a surgeon.
Choosing the right Plastic Surgeon is a very personal decision and one that needs careful research and consideration. Is it essential that your Surgeon is fully trained, qualified and registered as a Plastic Surgeon, and you feel comfortable during your consultation, Surgery and post care period.
Many patients are unaware that in Australia any Doctor may perform surgery without any surgical training or specialist recognition as a Surgeon. This could mean that your surgery may be performed by a Doctor not trained as a Plastic Surgeon.
In Australia Surgeons undertake intensive training to perform invasive surgical procedures and study specialist surgery for a minimum of five years culminating in at least twelve years of total Medical and Surgical education. Surgeons are Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) or equivalent, the standard qualification required in Australia to perform surgery in private and public hospitals. A FRACS (Plas) Member has studied and trained in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery for a minimum of five years after Medical School.
At the time of making your appointment it is important to ask if the Doctor is a member of FRACS, the only legally recognised and accredited organisation.
