Consultation Information

Your surgical "journey" involves many steps, which start with your consultation and end with your recovery process. Each of these is carefully managed by our professional staff to ensure your safety and well-being and to make your Form & Function experience a good one.

Consultation Lengths: The length of initial consultation with your surgeon will vary depending on your presenting condition. Appointments regarding Skin Lesions are approximately 15 minutes each while appointments for larger procedures, such as Breast Reduction, are booked for 45–60 minutes. This is to allow adequate time for your surgeon to explain your surgery in detail, answer any questions you may have and complete the necessary pre-operative assessments and clinical photography.

Consultation Fees: A consultation fee applies to any initial consultation at Form & Function Clinic. With a referral from your GP, a portion of the fee can be reimbursed via Medicare.

Preparing for Your Consultation: We recommend that you prepare for your consultation by considering a list of questions for your surgeon to ensure that all of your concerns are addressed at the time of consultation. A second consultation is sometimes required before proceeding to surgery, particularly if you have experienced weight loss or health concerns in the lead up to surgery, or if a significant amount of time has passed between your initial consultation and subsequent surgery date.

If you have any questions in the lead up to surgery, please don't hesitate to contact our helpful practice staff who will be only too happy to assist you.
