A consultation with Dr Doyle is $285. If you have a referral from your GP, you will be able to claim $70 back from Medicare. During this consultation, you will be given comprehensive information regarding the procedure you are interested in and a quote for the surgical fees. This consultation will last about 1 hour (20mins with Dr Doyle and 40 mins with a registered nurse) and your medical history will be reviewed and assessed. You may also have some photographs taken.

All patients need a minimum of 10 days following the initial consultation and consent process before they can book a procedure.

A plastic surgeon is someone who is qualified to perform invasive surgical procedures. They have studied specialist surgery for a minimum of five years and have at least twelve years of total medical and surgical education. Surgeons are Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) or equivalent, and have undergone intensive training to perform invasive surgical procedures. A FRACS (Plast) member has studied and trained in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery for a minimum of five years after medical school.

Doctors with only a MBBS (bachelor of medicine and bachelor of surgery) degree are not surgeons. They are not trained for invasive surgical procedures. However in Australia, surgically unqualified doctors are also allowed to perform cosmetic surgery. To ensure your surgeon is fully qualified and has extensive surgical training, patients should make sure their surgeon is a FRACS.

This is very dependent on the type of surgery you are having. Please look at your specific procedure for this information.
