Dr Kourosh Tavakoli is a fully qualified Australian trained Plastic Surgeon specialising in Cosmetic Surgery. He is a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons and Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. These are the societies affiliated and recognised by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons for Plastic Surgeons.

A Sydney Grammar School graduate, Dr Tavakoli's 6 years medical training was at the University of NSW. Furthermore, he holds a Master of Surgery (MS) postgraduate research degree in Plastic surgery also received from the University of NSW. His Masters thesis was based on scientific research into Paediatric (children's) Craniofacial Distraction Osteogenesis used in treating kids with born facial deformities.

In this field expertise is everything. Dr Tavakoli has trained exclusively in Plastic Surgery under the auspices of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons, which is the only statutory recognized body for training of plastic surgeons in Australia. The letters FRACS (plastic surgery) indicate a full fellowship of the College in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. It reflects years of training (at least an extra 10 years) in surgery far beyond the medical school period. In fact FRACS is the only recognized surgical qualification in Australia and is the Gold Standard by which all other aspirants in this area are measured.

Dr. Tavakoli's main passion is however, Aesthetic or Cosmetic Surgery. Dr Tavakoli specialises in minimal scar plastic surgery of the face, breast and body. He is mostly aware of the importance of short scars in modern plastic surgery and is highly dedicated to delivering a natural look to all his patients.
