Your consultation

The prospect of undergoing any form of surgery is daunting, so your first consultation is designed to give you plenty of time to discuss your potential procedure with Dr Simone Matousek.

For many patients, particularly those planning to undergo major surgery, a second consultation to  further discuss their procedure and ask any questions they have thought of is often necessary. This second consultation is available at no extra charge.

You will be greeted by our friendly practice manager and asked to fill out a patient information sheet to give us important details needed about your past medical history, previous surgeries, medications and allergies. It is useful to bring of list of all medications that you take, including herbal remedies, vitamins etc. If you would prefer to do this prior to coming to save time, we can email you the form to fill out. With your permission, photographs are usually taken at the time of your consultation. All material collected is treated as strictly confidential.

Our Approach

Plastic surgical procedures, when performed on correctly selected patients, can greatly improve a person’s quality of life and self-esteem. It may be about reconstructing an area that has been affected by disease, improving on a feature that has been an area of concern for a while or reversing the process of ageing.

No matter what your area of concern, you will be presented with an honest assessment if the decision to have surgery is the correct one for you, and also of the risks and recovery time involved.

It is a good idea to bring old photos of yourself if you are coming for a facial rejuvenation consultation. These help with trying to restore a person’s previous appearance that has changed due to ageing.

Especially for patients interested in rhinoplasty or other facial aesthetic work, breast augmentation or breast lift, selecting photographs of the type of appearance one hopes to achieve with surgery (from magazines or the internet) is a good way of conveying your surgical goals and to assess if they are realistic.

You will be able to see de-identified, confidential images at the time of your consultation of  people who have given their permission for other potential patients to see their photographs. These photographs will be selected to show similar body types or results to what a person may expect for their particular area of concern

Getting ready for your consultation

Check your email

After you make your appointment, we will send you an email with directions on how to get to our rooms and instructions about your appointment.

Arrive at least 10 minutes early

This allows you to fill out paperwork before the consultation so you get your full time with Dr Matousek. The doctor tends to run on time and if you are significantly late, this may shorten your consultation on very busy days.

GP or specialist referral

In order to get a Medicare rebate for your consultation, you must bring a current GP or specialist referral addressed to Dr Simone Matousek.

Test results and past medical history

If you have had previous procedures that are relevant to the consultation, please try and provide details. This includes imaging such as ultrasounds, mammograms, CTs MRIs or blood tests. If you do not have them, contact our practice manager prior to the consultation and they may be able to get these faxed to us so they are ready. If you have had previous breast implants, you have often been given an implant card with the size and brand which is very helpful if you are able to locate it.

Parking

There is sometimes parking in the grounds of St Luke's hospital. Otherwise there is plenty of off street parking for one hour or a Wilson parking in the nearby Ward avenue.

Second consultations

A second consultation before major surgery is often necessary and is at no extra charge.
