Cosmetic surgery – A national survey for Australian consumers

27 January 2022

Have you had experience with cosmetic surgery? We want to hear your thoughts and feedback.

Western Australians are encouraged to take part in an anonymous national survey issued by State and Territory Health Ministers.

Australia’s health ministers are concerned that use of the title ‘surgeon’ by medical practitioners may be confusing for the public, particularly when it comes to cosmetic surgery.

Currently, any medical practitioner in Australia may call themselves a surgeon or cosmetic surgeon, without completing specialist surgical training.

Your feedback will help determine if this needs to change. If you have had surgery, particularly cosmetic surgery, please share your experiences in this anonymous survey (external site).

Note: It is recommended that you do not make disclosures about your own or others' experience on social media. Please provide feedback in the anonymous survey only.
