A leading female Plastic Surgeon in Sydney, Australia, specialising in both cosmetic plastic surgery and reconstructive plastic surgery procedures.

Why choose a female plastic surgeon?
A female plastic surgeon can provide excellent insight and compassion to help them feel more comfortable during a consultation. Being a female plastic surgeon, she has an excellent awareness of what it means to want to enhance one’s appearance in the most natural way possible and will be able to appreciate better and interpret your goals for aesthetic surgery.
Dr Simone treats all genders; however, an all-female surgical team is available for those who feel more comfortable with this.
What makes an elite female plastic surgeon?
Being an elite plastic surgeon incorporates the most up to date developments and technical skills in plastic surgery combined with an artistic eye and aesthetic judgement, with attention to detail and follow up. Dr Simone takes particular care with your consultation and assessment; you will always have enough time to consider your options carefully and choose the best plastic surgery procedure for you. She offers the most effective cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedures available, all of which she performs herself. She exercises a careful and measured approach to all procedures, ensuring she delivers the best natural plastic surgery results possible with personalised, discreet service. Dr Simone and her surgical team strive to provide you with the best plastic surgical experience possible in a safe surgical environment.
A PhD degree in plastic surgery
Dr Simone is one of only a few plastic surgeons who has completed a Doctor of Philosophy or PhD, the highest academic degree a person can achieve. Her original plastic surgery thesis focused on the fascial system and ligamentous anatomy of the breast and buttock. She discovered new anatomical structures that have been recognised internationally and are relevant to plastic surgery operations. This original research has been published in the peer-reviewed premier plastic surgery journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, PRS and cited multiple times by other plastic surgeons worldwide. She has most recently presented her PhD research at Miami’s International Plastic Surgery conference (ISAPS) on liposuction and fat grafting in the buttock region. Her most recent publication is an expert opinion piece on breast anatomy in the July 2020 Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery issue.
A pioneer in fat grafting in Australia
Dr Simone has unparalleled experience in large volume fat grafting to achieve natural breast augmentation (fat grafting alone or in combination with breast implants), breast reconstruction post-cancer or congenital deformities such as tuberous breast, constricted breast or breast asymmetry. She pioneered large volume fat grafting of the breast (breast augmentation with fat) in Australia, being one of the first plastic surgeons to perform this technique in Sydney, Australia. Due to her fat grafting expertise, Dr Simone can offer an alternative to breast implants, correcting congenital breast problems (asymmetry or abnormal development such as tuberous breast), soft tissue loss due to trauma, cancer or congenital deformities all over the body, as well as revision liposuction surgery or other revision surgeries where fat transfer could benefit.
Two plastic surgery post-training fellowships and extensive overseas training in fat grafting
Following her plastic surgery training in Sydney through the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, Dr Simone Matousek completed two further post plastic surgery training 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) where she worked with one of the most experienced facelifting surgeons in the United Kingdom.
She visited surgeons internationally to gain the best possible experience in large volume fat grafting before anyone in Australia even practised this technique to develop her own exclusive liposuction and fat grafting technique, which she has been doing regularly for over ten years.
What does it mean to earn the title of plastic surgeon in Australia?
The title “plastic surgeon” involves many years of supervised training in many different types of procedures; it consists of the management of complex congenital and trauma cases, post-cancer reconstruction, microsurgery as well as what is regarded as purely cosmetic or aesthetic surgery, although there is an overlap between the two in many cases. This extensive training in complex reconstructions means a plastic surgeon is well equipped to handle both primary and revision cases they may be presented with. It is important to note that the title “plastic surgeon” is limited to someone who has passed barrier exams and done extensive training through the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, whilst the title “cosmetic surgeon” can be used by anyone with a medical degree.
Dr Simone is a plastic surgery provider for members of the Australian Defence Force. Dr Simone is an active member of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and is an examiner of future surgical trainees for the college.
A plastic surgeon with her own skincare line and the most up to date non-surgical skin technology
Dr Simone has spent the last decade developing a premium skincare line, Skintillation®, launched in 2018 after years of testing and research. It is manufactured in Sydney in conjunction with a cosmetic chemist with over 20 years of experience and is distributed worldwide. Dr Simone oversees every aspect of the production process and personally selects and tests the most effective skin-enhancing and anti-ageing ingredients available from all over the world. She combines these in the correct concentrations to ensure Skintillation® has the most potent anti-ageing effect to complement any plastic surgical or non-surgical procedure. Dr Simone believes reversing skin ageing is one of the most critical factors in maintaining a youthful appearance. For this reason, she has invested in one of the best laser and broadband light devices available, the Sciton®, which allows a range of skin resurfacing and rejuvenation options, including the revolutionary Forever Young BBL™ facial.
A female plastic surgeon that performs a full range of non-surgical rejuvenation treatments
No facial non-surgical procedure is ever delegated to any other person in the practice. Poorly done non-surgical procedures such as filler and botulinum toxin are all too common causes of an odd appearance today. Done well, they can slow the ageing process and prevent the need for surgical procedures for some time. Done poorly, they can cause irreversible damage and make a person look older. Unfortunately, they are trivialised as beauty, paramedical or spa treatments rather than procedures that can have real consequences when performed by inexperienced individuals.
Plastic surgery has its place, but with non-surgical technology constantly improving, Dr Simone believes it is an essential part of a plastic surgeon’s practice and should not be delegated to anyone less experienced. It is often subtle, cumulative changes over time and a combination of different treatments that will make the most significant difference to the ageing process, not any one big surgical procedure.
A female plastic surgeon that can offer you the full range of treatments from the simplest to the most complex means you can select the best plastic surgical or non-surgical treatment for you. Every procedure is precisely tailored to suit your existing facial features or body type.
