Our friendly team of fully trained Plastic Surgeons here at Horizon Plastic Surgery are forever trying to make your pathway through your surgical procedure easier and more streamlined. We have all had family members or personal experience of surgery “from the other side” and know it can sometimes be a confronting and confusing experience. To try and ease your concerns and help you make decisions we have added to our website a series of Opinion Pieces from leaders in their field. This will be generic information and so may not be specifically relevant to you however the feedback we have received from patients has been extraordinary and so we will continue to update and inform you in order to make your time with us as stress-free as possible. We encourage you to select the procedure/s which interest you and read on.
Please note that the purpose of these topics is to educate and guide you in your decision making and so it should not be confused for an extensive photo gallery of before and after pictures. The policy at Horizon Plastic Surgery is to only use patient photos in an educational capacity on our website. Of course if you want to see more photos that will be more specific to your personal requirements we would be more than happy to show these to you at your appointment.
If you need more information please feel free to contact us on phone 03 8560 2999 or email email@example.com for an appointment.
