As a highly respected Plastic Surgeon, Dr Alan Breidahl prides himself on combining patient safety and a naturalist approach to provide life-changing results.
At Melbourne Plastic Surgery, our aim is to use surgery as a tool to freshen appearances, without leaving obvious signs of an operation. By minimising or hiding scars and balancing procedures, we strive for subtle results that make the patient appear well-rested and more youthful. Dr Breidahl believes that a clear, communicative relationship between doctors and patients is essential for the best results.
