No. A referral is not necessary for a cosmetic surgery, however some consultations attract a rebate from Medicare and/or your health fund so you will need to get a referral from your GP.

Are there risks involved with surgery?

Any type of surgery has a potential risk. It is important to discuss all risks and complications with Dr Turner in detail at the initial consultation.

Where is the surgery performed?

Dr Turner operates at a number of fully accredited private hospitals where your cosmetic surgery will be performed. (link to operating facility page).

Will there be any scarring?

Whenever there is an incision there will be a scar. Dr Turner’s job is to ensure the final scar is the best it can possibly be. A well placed incision that is sutured in a fine meticulous manner typically fades over time and are hardly noticeable. However, there is some unpredictability about how some scars heal and this will be discussed depending on the procedure you are having.

What is the difference of getting my surgery in Australia compared to overseas?

Getting surgery done overseas is often cheaper but not always safer. There are many benefits to undertaking any surgical procedure locally, especially when it comes to recovery at home and in the case of any unforeseen issues arising.

Also with cosmetic surgery performed overseas there is a well reported higher complication and revision rate that is not discussed and needs to be taken into account when looking at the final costs.

Can I drive myself home after surgery?

No. Whether your surgery requires sedation or a full general anaesthetic, the patient will need someone to drive them home and stay with them for at least 24 hours after the procedure.

Do I need to take medication after my surgery?

Painkillers and/or antibiotics are often prescribed after your cosmetic surgery. You will be directed as to what medication you need to take. It is important you are comfortable after any surgery, so you are encouraged to take any pain relief medication as directed to make your overall experience considerably more comfortable.

Will I need to wear a surgical garment?

Following some surgical procedures, tight fitting surgical garments are used for comfort, to help reduce bruising and to control excessive swelling. Should your procedure require a garment Dr Turners office will provide you with the details.

When can I get back to normal activities?

This really depends on what kind of surgery you’ve had.

As a general rule, you’ll be advised to avoid exercise for the first two weeks after surgery. You will be able to gradually resume activity, and by six weeks following your surgery you should be back to your normal level of exercise.
