Why Choose Dr Scott Turner – Specialist Plastic Surgeon in Newcastle & Sydney

Before you book a consultation with Dr Turner, you may research that he is a specialist plastic surgeon with a prosperous career and an accomplished medical education to back him up. However it’s not just the impressive array of accolades that result in successful surgeries, it’s Dr Turner’s casual yet professional approach towards all his patients. His positive ambience and patience to answer all questions allow his patients to always feel informed and most importantly, comfortable.

This is how Dr Turner has been able to set himself apart from other cosmetic surgeons. His goal has remained the same from the day he decided to become a surgeon: to provide his patients with natural, beautiful results. His thriving practice is a testament to what he set out to achieve from the very beginning: changing a person’s quality of life, through self-improvement.

His practices are continually fighting against the stigma of plastic surgery and proving to society why the attitude of plastic surgery has shifted. Dr Turner’s philosophy is founded on the objective to provide natural results to suit each individual’s characteristics and enhance one’s self-confidence. His clinic is incessantly improving surgical techniques and equipment to deliver safer and more predictable surgeries. This works hand in hand in achieving naturally beautiful outcomes, and therefore revolutionising the plastic surgery sphere to more open discussion and positive shared experiences.

However rewinding years back, it was not smooth sailing for Dr Turner to be where he is today. Did you know that he began studying a double degree in law and mathematics at the University of NSW? After realising that his talents were meant to be employed elsewhere, Dr Turner changed paths and began studying a Bachelor of Medical Science majoring in Anatomy.

After discovering his passion and talent for medicine, Dr Turner was accepted into the post-graduate medical program at the University of Sydney where he was presented a Bachelor of Medicine/Surgery with Honours. Dr Turner then committed many years to become a specialist plastic surgeon by continuously improving his skills from medical internships and residencies at various leading Sydney hospitals.

He further commenced another degree with his studies with a Masters of Surgery in Plastic Surgery at the University of Sydney. During that time he was awarded the prestigious John Brookes Moore Scholarship for Surgery and the John Lowenthal Medal for Surgery.

Overall, his accreditations and credentials are only a part of the reason why patients have expressed positive experiences with him. Dr Turner manifests the exemplary plastic surgeon who will assist a patient’s journey throughout the whole process. It is perplexing that common plastic surgery procedures have surgical revision rates of 10-20%. Dr Turner defies that statistic and believes in the importance of a follow up consultation with his patients. Therefore, Dr Turner is one of the most trusted plastic surgeons in Sydney and you can read more about his real life patients here.
