What is Plastic Surgery?
Plastic surgery covers a wide range of different surgical procedures that repair, reconstruct or replace structures in many different parts of the body including the skin, face and head, hands, breast and stomach. Plastic surgery does not involve the use of plastic materials.
Plastic surgery can generally be divided into two main types:
  • Reconstructive surgery: is performed on parts of the body that are abnormal or have been affected by a birth defect, accident or disease. This includes cleft lip and palate repair, scar revision or reconstruction (including skin grafts) following burns. Surgery is usually performed to improve function, but may also be performed to bring the appearance of a part of the body as close as possible to normal.
  • Aesthetic or cosmetic surgery: improves appearance or body image by reshaping features of the face or body e.g. breast enlargement, face lift, liposuction.


Referral Expectations

When considering breast reconstruction, you will have an initial consultation with your plastic surgeon who will assess your general health and discuss the best type of surgical procedure for you. You will be given a lot of information during your consultation. It may be helpful to bring along a support person during this visit. You may want or need a second consultation before confirming the surgical plan which is best for you.


8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Mon – Fri8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Please contact the practice during business hours and Saturday mornings fortnightly, to arrange appointments. Dr Locke most commonly consults at St Marks on Wednesday afternoons.
