Fellow of Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (Plastics)

Level 6, 149 Macquarie St Sydney NSW


After 17 years of postgraduate training, 4 continents, 11 countries Dr Knight brings the world to Sydney along with his other passion – his wife and 2 daughters.

Dr Knight performs a wide range of surgical procedures at Pure Aesthetics, including breast augmentation, breast reduction, face and neck lifts, brow lift surgery, rhinoplasty, liposuction, labiaplasty, and much more. He has undergone extensive training in plastic and reconstructive surgery, allowing him to provide patients with highly advanced care.

“I have always believed that if you love what you do for a living, you need not work a day in your life. I am fortunate enough to have found my passion early on in life by identifying that surgery was my calling. Despite initially focusing on cardiothoracic and transplant surgery, I soon came to realise that only plastic and reconstructive surgery embodied the principles of function, aesthetic form and holistic care using techniques and artistic license rather than prescribed set operations.“

–Dr. Rob Knight

Current and Previous Appointments

Dr Knight was invited to work at Seattle Children’s Hospital with the current world experts in Craniomaxillofacial Surgery dealing with congenital anomalies and acquired anomalies of the skull, face, eyes, ears, nose, jaws and neck. He also operated at the Harborview Medical Centre in Seattle, Washington which is one of the largest trauma centres in the USA. During his time in the USA, Dr Knight presented in Los Angeles at the largest plastic surgery conference in the country and continued his training in Seattle, Phoenix Barrow Institute, Raleigh/North Carolina, Tampa, Hawaii, San Francisco, Chicago and Yale University. He trained with international experts in face, nose, ear and jaw reconstruction as well as world famous breast, lower limb and hand reconstruction.

While working in Seattle he learned from colleagues from Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Yale, Duke, Toronto and New York. He was awarded the DePuy Travelling Fellowship and the Stryker Advanced Technique Travelling Fellowship during his time in the USA as well as the Covidien award. He has published work on complex transverse facial cleft deformities, subcranial rotation advancement of the face and cleft lip rhinoplasty anomalies in international peer reviewed journals.

Having now spent the best part of 13 years focussing on plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery and learning from some of the best surgeons in the world, Dr Knight returns home to settle and to bring the world to Sydney. His pursuit to acquire this knowledge and skill set has led Dr Knight to live and work on 4 continents and study in 11 countries with additional advanced fellowships in craniomaxillofacial and aesthetic/cosmetic surgery from some of the best institutes internationally.

Dr Knight’s practice amalgamates all this experience and knowledge into one service designed to focus on the needs of my clients, listening and working with them to define a vision of what they want to achieve and then apply techniques from around the world to bring state of the art results.
