Trusted Surgeons: Australia’s Cosmetic Surgery Community. A voice for patients.

Sydney, Australia, 28th December 2017, Trusted Surgeons, an online platform connecting patients with board certified plastic surgeons, has taken the bold move of becoming a ‘not for profit’. Trusted Surgeons aim is to educate and establish a platform that will assist individuals considering cosmetic and elective procedures so that they can make a safe, informed and educated decision.

Nicole Montgomery, cosmetic surgery nurse and Founder of Trusted Surgeons, realised that there are no post-operative support platforms for the patients.

Nicole states: “We are focusing all our efforts on educating, supporting, and promoting qualified surgeons. The public are becoming more aware on the dangers of surgery; however, Cosmetic Tourism is on the rise in Australia.”

“Whilst we realise that there are peak bodies for plastic surgeons in Australia, these are primarily a representation for surgeons and focus on expanding a surgeon’s knowledge of the industry.’

“We want to create a voice for the patients, weather they are seeking surgery for the first time or returning after a procedure has not gone according to the plan.”

Trusted Surgeons aim is to educate and establish a platform that will assist individuals considering cosmetic and elective procedures so that they can make a safe, informed and educated decision.

Nicole concludes:

“Much thought and careful consideration has gone into the decision to set up the ‘TS Foundation of Australia’ but an ever-increasing amount of calls from patients that required someone to just listen to them and provide them with some guidance having had nowhere else to turn too has pushed us in this direction.”

“Consumers are confused and often make surgical decisions based on inaccurate information from social media, google and directory sites. These poor decisions often lead to horrendous outcomes and quite often place an unnecessary strain on the public health system.”

“Education is the key. Accurate information that is trustworthy and is evaluated by a board of plastic surgeons needs to be disseminated to the public. Trusted Surgeons aim to minimise confusion and help patients make well informed decisions around surgery.”

Trusted Surgeons aims to combine reviews and a ‘question and answer’ platform which is consumer driven, non-bias and trustworthy. Trusted Surgeons is different to all other platforms as we are not powered by surgeons only interested in generating leads, or suppliers advertising. Trusted Surgeons is an educational platform for everyday people looking to learn more, without having to book a consultation. We empower people to be well informed and to choose a qualified surgeon (regardless of whether they are a member).”

With the support of the industry and donations, Trusted Surgeons has the potential to become the most trustworthy global educational resource within the aesthetic industry. Driven by nurses, passion and a commitment to raising the standards of the aesthetic industry. Trusted Surgeons is the only consumer driven site with no advertising, invested interest or commercial approach. We are people with a purpose to genuinely help people and this genuine, authentic, and honest approach is what sets us apart.
