What is a Specialist Plastic Surgeon?


We know the term Cosmetic Surgeon and Plastic Surgeon are used interchangeably, however it is important to understand the difference. Dr Steven Liew and Dr Ania Smialkowsi are Specialist Plastic Surgeons, and Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS). This distinction is only awarded to Specialist Plastic Surgeons who have completed a minimum of 10 years medical and surgical education, including at least 5 years of specialist postgraduate training.
