Under Australian law, any medical doctor can perform cosmetic surgery, even a family GP. Dr Edinburg is a specially trained expert and is accredited in cosmetic and plastic surgery by the Royal Australian College of Surgeons, which is the only statutory recognised body for training of specialist plastic surgeons in Australia.

Dr Edinburg has completed a full fellowship of the College in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (FRACS – Plastic Surgery).

The specialist training involves the following requirements:

  • Five years undergraduate medical training
  • Two years postgraduate surgical training

Your health and surgical results are of paramount importance to Dr Edinburg. His expertise and care set him apart. Always thoroughly research the credentials of your surgeon.

More about Dr Edinburg’s expertise.

Consultations with Dr Edinburg will vary according to the individual treatment or range of treatments that you require. These can take between 20 and 40 minutes. A referral from your local doctor is advisable but not essential for every procedure. Ask us to guide you.

Most reconstructive procedures (like skin cancers, moles, most lesions and growths, most hand conditions) attract a Medicare rebate plus Health Fund benefits (if the procedure is performed in hospital).

For some cosmetic surgery procedures including breast lift surgery, abdominoplasty, rhinoplasty, upper eyelid surgery, otoplasty (ear) surgery, male breast reduction (gynaecomastia), as well as a few others, Medicare item numbers and associated rebates may be applicable.

Many patients have the same confusion. In Australia, plastic surgeons are trained as specialists through the Royal Australian College of Surgeons. The word 'cosmetic' is simply a word, just like 'family GP' - the word "family" is not a specialist training but a word. It's the same with the word "cosmetic". Any doctor can put the words "cosmetic surgeon" as a part of his or her title, with or without any formal or specialist training.

In order to use the title 'Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon' the surgeon must undergo the formal specialist training through RACS. Cosmetic surgery is another facet of a Plastic Surgeon's Reconstructive training.
