What do I need to do before booking a consultation with Dr Wyten?

Having surgery is a big decision. It’s important to consider your motivations for surgery and your desired outcome from surgery.

Before booking an appointment with Dr Wyten, it’s important to consult with your General Practitioner (GP) to discuss your needs and to find out more about having plastic surgery. It’s now an Australian requirement that all patients considering having cosmetic surgery see a GP or other Medical Practitioner prior to seeing a Specialist Plastic Surgeon. If deemed appropriate, your GP or other specialist can refer you to Dr Wyten for a further consultation. 

Do I need to have any tests before seeing Dr Wyten? 

The following tests are recommended prior to these specific operations.

Abdominoplasty surgery:

  • Abdominal ultrasound to measure the rectus divarication (abdominal muscle separation), and to exclude abdominal hernias

Breast surgery:

  • If you’re aged under 40 years: Breast ultrasound
  • If you’re aged 40 years or over: Breast ultrasound and mammogram
  • If you have breast implants already, you may need to have a MRI – please confirm if this is required at the time of booking your consultation 

What clothing should I wear to my consultation with Dr Wyten?

Dr Wyten recommends you wear comfortable clothing to your consultation. Dr Wyten will need to examine your body to give you personalised surgical recommendations, and it is common to have photographs taken of your body (pre-surgery photos) so please wear clothing that is easy to get in and out of.

What do I need to bring to my consultation with Dr Wyten?

Please bring the following to your consultation with Dr Wyten:

  • Your referral letter from your GP
  • Any relevant investigations you have had (e.g., recent breast screening tests)
  • A list of any questions you may have for Dr Wyten about the surgery you are considering
  • Your Medicare card and Private Health Insurance information (if you have this)
  • Patients seeing other medical specialists for other significant medical conditions may be required to have a letter confirming your fitness for surgery, and any considerations that may need to be made with regard to your current treatment (e.g., medication changes). This is to ensure potential risks are managed and to maximise the chance of a smooth recovery.
