All consultations at Ethique Plastic Surgery require a referral. The referral needs to provide the reason for you needing to see Dr Safvat. The referring General Practitioner (GP) provides us with your medical history which is important in determining the plan for you.
For consultations that are deemed Medical, you need to have a referral to be eligible for rebates from Medicare.
For consultations that are deemed Cosmetic (e.g. Breast Augmentation, Neck Lift) a referral is required by AHPRA regulations even though rebates will not be available from Medicare.
Ethique Plastic Surgery will correspond with your GP to keep them informed of your treatment(s) and keep your medical records and health history up-to-date.
