Reconstructive surgery is used to restore form and function as a result of birth defects, trauma or medical conditions.
The surgeons at Plastic Surgery Central have been trained and accredited at a national level in reconstructive surgery. All surgeons are fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. Our surgeons have also travelled abroad and gained at least one additional year of subspecialty reconstructive training in either craniofacial, burns or head and neck surgery.
The goal of reconstructive surgery is to restore a patient’s anatomy where possible or introduce new tissue or implants if necessary. Our training has given us experience and equipped us with the necessary tools to perform this kind of surgery at the highest level from skin grafts and local flaps to microvascular reconstruction or the use of acellular dermal matrices and implants.
Reconstructions are tailored to the patient and the defect. We specialise in wounds from skin cancer, soft tissue cancer excision and trauma. Your surgeon will discuss the options with you and help guide your decision to optimise the outcome. Other medical conditions can influence your suitability for a given procedure and this will be explained during your consultation.
Generally reconstructive surgery after birth defect, trauma or medical conditions is rebatable through Medicare and standard private health insurance. This does require a referral from your family doctor.
After your consultation, a detailed quote will be provided to you including the surgeon fee, anaesthetic fee, and hospital fee.

Please be aware that all surgical procedures require a consultation with our plastic surgeons to allow a thorough assessment and discussion of your specific needs.
