Cosmetic Surgeon vs Plastic Surgeon

Choosing the Right Doctor

By far the most important decision you will make when contemplating breast surgery, or any type of cosmetic surgery, is your choice of surgeon.

There are countless media reports of botched surgery resulting from poorly-qualified and inexperienced doctors, and inappropriate use of anaesthetics.

These stories highlight the dangers of choosing ‘cosmetic doctors’ over specialist ‘plastic surgeons’.

It is not a well-known fact, but there is a significant difference between a cosmetic surgeon and a plastic surgeon. Currently in Australia, it is legal for any doctor to perform surgery and call themselves a ‘cosmetic surgeon’.

Consequently, the training, skills and experience of cosmetic surgeons varies greatly, as can the operating environments used and the use of anaesthetics.

The key difference with Dr Mistry is that he is a fully qualified and accredited specialist ‘plastic surgeon’ – not a doctor without specialist training and experience calling themselves ‘cosmetic surgeons’.

Importantly, your surgery takes place in a fully-accredited, premium hospital under general anaesthetic, administered by a fully-qualified anaesthetist accredited with ANZCA (the Australian & New Zealand College of Anaesthetists).
