International & Interstate Patients

Can Dr Briggs Operate on International or Interstate Patients?

For many years Dr Briggs’ reputation as a specialist in plastic and cosmetic surgery has drawn patients from Australia as well as Interstate and Internationally.

Dr Briggs has significant experience in plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures using advanced surgical techniques. Combined with exceptional pre and post-operative care, it is possible to expect a high degree of predictability. Your care will be as exceptional no matter if you have travelled internationally or from interstate for your procedure.

Your time is valuable and our goal at Dr Briggs’ practice in Subiaco is for you and your visit to be as relaxed and comfortable as possible.

The resources provided on our website are designed to help us meet your goal but in addition Dr Briggs has a team of highly skilled nurses and administrative staff who have worked alongside Dr Briggs for many years and will be able to assist you with any enquiries, so please just ask.

We can also assist with local hospitality arrangements on request.


Private Hospitals Dr Briggs Works With

  • Ramsay Group Hospitals in Melbourne – Masada, The Avenue and Glenferrie Private

As a fully qualified Specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr Briggs will only work with hospitals he trusts, therefore all of the above mentioned hospitals ar accredited and recognised by the Victorian Health Department. Many under qualified surgeons in Melbourne may choose to perform procedures such as breast augmentation under local anaesthetic in their clinics but this is not common practice for those surgeons with qualifications such as Dr Briggs.
