All Consultations with our Surgeons do incur a Consultation Fee.
So, why do experienced and reputable clinics such as ours charge for their doctor-consultations when some clinics offer ‘Free Consultations’?
Simply because Clinics offering ‘Free Consultations’ aim to attract more patients by not charging a consultation fee but then try hard to sell patients something even if it’s not the patient’s best treatment option. We regularly have callers describe to us how they were sold a treatment or were signed up for a series of expensive treatments at a Free Consultation that never helped at all. Moreover, Free Consultations are usually very brief and often conducted by a Nurse or Sales Consultant with only a brief ‘look in’ by the doctor – if at all!
In contrast, our Consultations are professional, detailed, informative, honest and conducted entirely by the Surgeon who’ll be doing your procedure. You will not at all feel pressured into signing up for something or agreeing to a treatment then and there. Instead, our aim is to simply give you all the necessary information so you can go away, consider it all, and then make an informed decision.
Remember, only your Surgeon, not a Nurse or Sales Consultant, is medico-legally permitted to offer you a medical opinion or examine you. Your Surgeon is the only person who has the experience and expertise to:
As with other most other professions, detailed and informative consultations such as ours naturally involve a fee because you are paying for the professional’s time, knowledge, experience and advice. Think of the consultation fee as an investment in getting the right advice compared to ‘free consultations’ which are designed to ‘get you in sell you something’ – and that ‘something’ could be a treatment that is not the best one for your concerns.
PLEASE NOTE: Some consultation types attract a Medicare Rebate. Ask our Receptionist if your consultation is eligible for a Medicare Rebate.
NEW DERMAL FILLER PATIENTS: If you’ve never had Dermal Fillers before, we recommend you first have a ‘Total Facial Rejuvenation Consultation’ with Dr George Mayson so he can assess your entire face and explain in detail ALL your options, whether Dermal Fillers can help your areas of concern, what types there are and what each can and cannot achieve. The cost of this Total Facial Rejuvenation Consultation’ is currently $99 (normally $220) until 31 July 2020.
NEW PATIENTS WHO HAVE PREVIOUSLY HAD DERMAL FILLERS ELSEWHERE: We charge a $50 deposit for Dr Mayson to confirm your suitability which is redeemable off the cost of your Filler if done on the same day.
NEW ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTION PATIENTS: If you’ve never had Anti-Wrinkle Injections before, we recommend you first have a ‘Total Facial Rejuvenation Consultation’ by Dr George Mayson so he can assess your entire face and explain in detail ALL your treatment options, especially whether or not Anti-Wrinkle Injections can improve your areas of concern and what degree of correction you can expect. The cost of this Total Facial Rejuvenation Consultation’ is currently $99 (normally $220) until 31 July 2020.
NEW PATIENTS WHO HAVE PREVIOUSLY HAD ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS ELSEWHERE: We have three options for this group of new patients:
If you are seriously thinking about what procedures can make you look your best, this is your best starting point! Rather than research online and try to pick a procedure you think will achieve what you’re after, why not discuss your concerns with our highly experienced Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr George Mayson, who will analyse your face and honestly explain what your options are, which treatments will help, and which won’t. Many people research online and pick treatments they think will address their concerns but it’s not until they’ve had a detailed ‘Total Facial Rejuvenation Consultation’ that they realise what they thought was their ideal solution was not going to achieve what they had hoped!
Initial Consultation: $150
Follow-Up Consultation: $110
Unfortunately, since new National Regulations were introduced in 2016, doctors providing Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery are not allowed to arrange financial loans for patients, or refer patients to financial institutions, in order to finance their surgery.
This new National Regulation applies only to Doctors and Clinics providing Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery. The Regulations do not apply to other Medical Specialties.
Accordingly, if you need to finance all or part of your surgery, you must source your own funding.
