Trusted Surgeons FAQ

Who am I being offered support by?

We do not receive any financial gain from surgeons for our mentoring service. We cannot assist in gaining discounted surgery.

What happens if I have already had surgery and I am not happy with my results?

We have seen it all, nothing will surprise us. We cannot offer legal advice but we can guide you in the right direction by way of reconstructive surgeons.

If the therapeutic relationship has completely dissipated with your original surgeon we can help you choose your future corrective surgeon.

Unfortunately to enable us to provide an ethical platform, we do not promote monetary incentives for surgery. Booking surgery should be taken seriously, not rushed due to a marketing "call to action" or limited time only "discount".

We do not allow surgeons to advertise incentives.

Only registered practitioners with a medical background work with trusted surgeons and coaching. The Trusted Surgeons Nurses have experience in the cosmetic and plastic surgery field and are both respected nurses with a passion for patient satisfaction. Please visit the about us section.

Our selective group of surgeons have been chosen by location and specialty, we do not rank surgeons. Trusted Surgeons are ethical, possess integrity, devotion to patient care and best practice. We do not advertise these surgeons and do not receive any financial remuneration. We are both honoured and privileged to offer you the best possible surgeon within your chosen location. We always encourage more then one consultation so as you pick who you feel most comfortable with. A referral is simply a guide.

You will receive 100% money back guarantee. We are not out to exploit vulnerable clients. Our motivation is to facilitate your journey, support your decisions and connect you to the best surgeon. If we fail to achieve our goals, we will be disappointed we have let you down. We do not expect you to be out of pocket for a service which was not delivered.

NO. We do not offer medical advice without the clear and direct guidance of your surgeon. Keeping in mind your surgeon is the only true expert. We will refer you back to your surgeon. We will certainly liaise on your behalf if you are not comfortable or assist in any way we can. Emotional support is our specialty and we are always willing to listen.

Any medical professional can walk out of their degree knowing all they need to know, but in 5 years, 10 years and so on does their degree or title carry the same weight? No. Quite simply medical professionals accept and embrace a lifetime commitment to ongoing education. This commitment involves staying relevant, up-to date and aware of upcoming new techniques or medications. Within Australia we have two superior organisations which surgeons of a high calibre and ethics belong to. These organisations promote best practice, safety and facilitate ongoing education for patients and practitioners. The badges ASPS and ASAPS give you peace of mind, reassurance and trust.

Your surgeon will discuss with you specific pre and post-operative care as preparation and postoperative care are equally as important as the surgery.

Some over the counter medications however do increase your risk of bleeding, be mindful of and inform your surgeon;

Aspirin, Solprin, Dispirin, Ibprofen, Neurofen, Aspro Clear, Aspalgin, Neurofen Plus, Diclofenac.

Always check the label for “May contain” Asprin or salicylates.

Herbal and natural products may also cause bleeding, such as;

Fish Oil, Garlic Supplements, Ginger Supplements, Ginseng, St John’s Wart, Gingko Biloba and Vitamin E.

Trusted surgeons will assist you thru every bump in the road. Along with your surgeon all steps are taken to avoid any disappointment. However, there is never a 100% guarantee, which is why we stick with you in the tough times too. Together we will support and your surgeon to find a mutually beneficial plan to move forward and get the results you desire.

Many people don’t want to disclose their plans or rely on others for support. If you want to get away from your everyday life and do something for yourself, we will support you every step of the way. Many women with or without a support network suffer the post op blues. We can arrange your nursing support, travel needs and hold your hand from beginning to end. By the time you return home you will have had the procedure, be back to your vibrant self and not tell a soul.
