Qualifications

I’m a fully qualified Specialist Plastic Surgeon that practices in Perth, Western Australia. Being a Specialist Plastic Surgeon means that I have the letters FRACS (Plastic Surgery) after my name – this is the highest qualification in Plastic Surgery in Australia, the only qualification recognised by the Australian Government Medical Council, and is an assurance that I’m trained to the highest standards of surgical safety.

Memberships

  • Member of Australian Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS)
  • Member of Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS)
  • Member of Western Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (WASPS)
  • Member of Western Australia Kirkbride Melanoma Advisory Service (WAKMAS)

Training

I studied a Bachelor of Science in occupational therapy, and then completed medical school at the University of Western Australia. After completing internship at Royal Perth Hospital I worked for several years as a surgical doctor at several large tertiary hospitals throughout WA, developing foundation surgical skills in multiple different surgical specialities.

Training

I was then accepted into the highly competitive national Plastic Surgery training program – which is the only government recognised and regulated training body for Plastic Surgeons in Australia. Completing this intensive five-year training program allowed me to be admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons (FRACS) – the highest qualification in plastic surgery.

International and national experience

I’ve spent significant time overseas working at world renowned surgical centres. These extra years of training allowed me to further develop my skills as a Plastic Surgeon, and also exposed me to latest surgical practices and technology.

  • John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford University
    • Six month international fellowship in reconstructive surgery.
  • Churchill Hospital, Oxford University
    • Six month international fellowship in head and neck surgery.
  • Melbourne Institute of Plastic Surgery, Melbourne
    • Six month national fellowship in advanced cosmetic and aesthetic surgery.

Philosophy

I believe that plastic surgery should improve your physical well-being, and also definitely improve your emotional well-being. Whether the operation is cosmetic or reconstructive, there’s sometimes a gap between how people feel or look, and how they want to feel or look. My job is to help people bridge that gap, and make them feel more confident in who they truly are.

Philosophy

My aim is to provide safe, compassionate, and comprehensive treatment to every patient I treat. I’ve been trained in all aspects of plastic surgery, but I have particular passion for cosmetic surgery of the breast and body, and reconstructive surgery for melanoma and skin cancer. I also have a great passion for surgical teaching – my public hospital appointment at Royal Perth Hospital allows me to teach the next generation of Plastic Surgeons, and I’m currently publishing a Plastic Surgery textbook through Oxford University Press.

Family life

Away from my surgical practice I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by three beautiful and strong women that teach me skills like compassion, humility, and also other really important things like hair braiding and having tea parties.

Outside of family life I try to find some free time to do some distance running events.
