Deciding to Undergoing Cosmetic Surgery

The decision to undergo a cosmetic surgical procedure should not be made without considerable thought. During a consultation prior to your operation, Mr. Maxwell will discuss the benefits as well as the risks of the procedure. It is important to understand that all surgical procedures carry with them some level of risk and complications do happen so you need to be fully informed.

Deciding on a Cosmetic Surgeon

Because undergoing cosmetic surgery is such an important decision, it is important to select a qualified specialist cosmetic plastic surgeon who has done the rigorous minimum eight years of post-graduate training to become a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons in Plastic Surgery. Also, you should make sure that you choose a surgeon with whom you feel comfortable, and who gives you the time and attention you deserve.

In addition to being a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS), Mr. Maxwell is also a Member of the The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and The Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), an International Member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) and the International Society of  Plastic and Reconstructive and Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (I.P.R.A.S.). Mr. Maxwell has more than 20 years’ experience in helping patients transform their appearance and enhance their lives through cosmetic surgery.

Which Procedure Is Right for You

Some individuals have specific goals which they want to address and know exactly which cosmetic surgery procedure they desire. Others may wish to explore a range of possibilities for aesthetic enhancement. In all cases, Mr. Maxwell will advise you as to which procedures are most likely to meet your individual needs.

Whether you are interested in  Liposuction to get rid of stubborn fat deposits or a  Thigh Lift, Arm Reduction or Tummy Tuck procedure to improve your body contours, Mr. Maxwell can help you achieve a trimmer, younger-looking physique. Likewise the facial effects of ageing can be dramatically improved by such procedures as Facelift,  Brow Lift, Necklift, and Eyelid Surgery.  Cosmetic Nasal Surgery (Rhinoplasty) can also greatly enhance the facial aesthetics, as can the Correction of Prominent (‘Bat’) Ears.
