Why Choose a FRACS-qualified Plastic Surgeon? |

There is considerable confusion concerning the respective roles that general practitioners, cosmetic surgeons and plastic surgeons play in Australia’s cosmetic industry.

A specialist plastic surgeon is the only practitioner who has undergone extensive medical training in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery. This includes a minimum of 12 years of medical and surgical training; and incorporating a minimum of five years in specialist postgraduate training. 

As such, plastic surgeons are the only practitioners accredited by the Commonwealth Government and qualified to perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgery in private and public hospitals as well as accredited day surgeries, and are the only surgeons who can feature, “FRACS” [Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons] alongside their medical qualifications.
