Your first surgical consultation at Aesthetica is often with our Patient Advisor, Julie. For over 20 years, Julie has specialised in helping patients understand their surgery or medical procedure. She has worked alongside some of the top Surgeons in Melbourne. She has a real passion for patient care and making sure you’re well informed.
Your appointment with Julie is a casual conversation and does not require an examination. Julie loves sharing her wealth of knowledge and understands that while we do this each day, for you the process of discussing this type of procedure can be nerve-wracking.
Julie will listen to your individual concerns. She will help explain the procedure in-depth and is able to answer any questions you may have (no matter how awkward they may seem).
If you decide to proceed with the procedure Julie and our whole team of caring Doctors, Nurses and Dermal Clinicians are with you every step of the way. Especially in the weeks following your procedure.
