Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Why should I choose a specialist Plastic Surgeon?

It is legal for any doctor in Australia with a medical degree to perform surgery. However, Specialist Plastic Surgeons have extensive surgical training including a minimum of 12 years medical and surgical education, with at least 5 years of specialist postgraduate training. This then culminates in admission as a Fellow with the Royal Australian College of Surgeons (FRACS).

Is there any risk involved?

All surgical procedures carry risk, but you can reduce the chance of risk and complications by choosing a Specialist Plastic Surgeon who is trained, qualified and accredited to perform reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.

Who is Mr Michael Lo?

Mr Michael Lo is a fully qualified, accredited and experienced plastic surgeon. He graduated from Flinders University in 2002. He is a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons in the Specialty of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and a member of Australasian Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Through his extensive training and experience he has developed a keen interest in skin cancer, breast and hand surgery. He also performs cosmetic procedures.
Mr Michael Lo consults from Mackie Road Clinic on a fortnightly basis.

Do I need a referral?

A referral from your GP will allow you to claim part of the cost of your consultation from Medicare.
What should I bring to my appointment?
• Your referral
• Your Medicare card
• Your private health insurance card if applicable
• Payment (cash, debit or credit card). Consultation fees are payable on the day.

What happens during my first appointment?

Your surgeon will discuss your medial history and current concerns. He will also discuss your options including potential risks and benefits.
On some occasions minor procedures can be performed on the same day at our clinic. Otherwise you will be advised on how to book your procedure for surgery in either a public or private hospital.

Cancellation Policy:

Given the high demand for consultations, we ask patients to provide at least 24 hours notice by ringing us on 9579 3866 to allow us enough time to contact patients on the waiting list. Failure to do so will attract a charge of $75 which is not rebatable through Medicare.

Where can the procedure be done?

Mr Michael Lo has a private list for operations at Corymbia House, 92 David Street, Dandenong, VIC 3175. He also operates in various public hospitals in Melbourne.
