We’re committed to making cosmetic surgery safer. On this page are helpful resources for practitioners and the public.
Our Cosmetic Surgery Hotline – 1300 361 041 is a new service for cosmetic surgery patients or concerned practitioners to tell us about their bad experiences. If we know about it, we can investigate it. This specialised notifications team is here to listen Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm AEDT. Concerns can also be lodged confidentially.
