Initial skype consultation
Skype consultations are available for interstate or international patients.
To proceed with cosmetic surgery in Australia, you will need to have a second consultation prior to surgery.
Only one of the two compulsory consultations prior to a cosmetic surgery procedure can be virtual.
You can fill out a patient information sheet that will be sent to you electronically prior to your Skype consultation or can be downloaded by clicking on the sheet on this page. You will need to email photographs to Dr Simone for review prior to commencing the consultation. A Skype consultation can assess your suitability for surgery and if it is advisable for you to travel to Sydney for your second consultation.
Any pre-operative investigations such as MRI scans can usually be arranged close to where you live or can be arranged to coincide with a pre-operative visit.
Therefore, if you wish to proceed to have cosmetic surgery with Dr Simone, you will need to travel to Sydney on a minimum of two separate occasions. There are challenges with providing long-term follow up to interstate and international patients, and although follow up can be provided virtually in many cases, you should factor in there is always the chance you may need to return on subsequent occasions.
