Welcome to Southside Plastic Surgery

Southside Plastic Surgery is a specialist plastic and cosmetic surgery clinic located in the heart of the Wollongong Hospital precinct in the beautiful Illawarra region of New South Wales.

The team of surgeons who work in the clinic are highly trained Specialist Plastic Surgeons, all of whom hold Fellowship qualifications from the Royal Australian College of Surgeons (FRACS).

The surgeons perform all aspects of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, including cosmetic surgery of the breasts, body contouring after massive weight loss, liposuction & fat grafting, facial aesthetic surgery & rhinoplasty. In addition to aesthetic procedures, the surgeons are equally adept at reconstructive procedures including breast reconstruction following breast cancer treatment, facial trauma management, skin cancer reconstruction and hand surgery.

As well as surgical treatments, Southside Plastic Surgery also offers non-surgical treatments including anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and other skin rejuvenation procedures. These treatments are carried out by our nurse injector & dermal therapist.

We pride ourselves on the ability to offer our patients cutting edge and safe surgical techniques ensuring beautiful, natural and long-lasting results.

The surgeons consult and operate locally so that all your surgical care, from pre-operative consultations, the surgical procedures themselves and post-operative care can be conducted entirely in Wollongong without having to travel out of area.

The clinic is located within the newly re-developed Wollongong Day Surgery facility and is both modern and functional with patient-centric consultation space and a fully equipped minor surgery room to accommodate smaller procedures that do not require a full day surgery admission.
