Dr Simone Matousek is a fully qualified Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgeon.

Dr Simone studied medicine at UNSW, graduating with honours. Following advanced plastic surgery training through the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, Dr Matousek completed two further fellowships, one in breast surgery, (Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons/Allergan Breast Fellowship) and the other in facial aesthetic surgery (Mentor International Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship, London). She subsequently spent time in the United States to learn the technique of large volume fat grafting to the breast and was one of the first plastic surgeons in Australia to perform this for breast reconstruction and cosmetic enhancement.

Dr Matousek gained a PhD on the fascia of the breast and gluteal region, discovering new ligamentous structures in these areas. Her work has been published in leading plastic surgery journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

She was one of the first plastic surgeons in Australia to perform the technique of large volume fat grafting to the breast for reconstruction and cosmetic enhancement. By combining techniques learned directly from world experts, Dr Matousek has developed her own method of three-dimensional fat micrografting and shaping of the breast, combined with precise liposuction with skin tightening to give the best results. This can be used to treat congenital breast abnormalities such as tuberous breast or breast asymmetry and mastectomy reconstruction. Fat grafting can also be a solution for reconstruction of other congenital or post traumatic soft tissue defects and for facial volume loss.

Other areas of specialization are breast augmentation with implants, short scar breast reduction and surgical and non-surgical rejuvenation of the face and neck.
