All Consultations with our Surgeons entail 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. This is how they compensate for the loss of consultation fees they would have otherwise earned. Moreover, Free Consultations are usually very brief and 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 do 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 to enable you to go away and make informed decisions.
Remember, only your Surgeon, and not a Nurse or Sales Consultant, has the experience and expertise to:
As with 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 – and accordingly it would be unreasonable to expect that any quality consultation whould be free.
PLEASE NOTE: Some consultation types do attract a Medicare Rebate. Ask our Receptionist if your consultation is eligible for a Medicare Rebate.
We do NOT charge the above Initial Consultation Fees. Instead, we simply charge a $50 Booking Fee which is redeemable off the cost of your treatment if you have it done on the same day.
If you’ve never had these treatments before, we suggest that you first have a ‘Total Facial Rejuvenation Consultation’ with Dr George Mayson for him to assess your entire face and explain in detail ALL your options and what each can achieve. The cost of this is currently $99 (normally $220) until 30 June 2020.
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 procedure was not going to achieve what they had hoped!
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.
