As a vastly experienced Plastic Surgeon who has performed over 4000 cosmetic breast surgery procedures, Richard still maintains an unwavering belief that every person has the right to make informed choices for their body. His ability to listen and truly understand his clients’ needs sets him apart in this highly specialised industry.
As a leading Specialist Plastic Surgeon – and a fully qualified Fellow of The Australasian College of Surgeons, Richard has accumulated a wealth of experience in both public and private hospitals, honing a rare set of surgical skills that have made him a highly sought after and respected cosmetic surgeon of the breast, body and face.
After completing his Medical degree at Monash University, Richard spent the next ten years training at some of Australia’s most prestigious Plastic Surgery Centres – which included a fellowship in the USA focusing on cosmetic surgery.
Richard’s surgical skills are outstanding – his consultative approach, refreshing. He begins with an in-depth discussion that focuses on your objectives, then recommends the most suitable procedure or treatment that matches your particular needs. He achieves much of this through state of-the-art technology, demonstrating how the operation is performed, along with 3D imaging to help you make the right decision.
Despite his busy schedule, Richard has always played a significant role in training a new generation of Plastic Surgeons as well as leadership roles in the specialty. His industry involvement includes a role as Supervisor of Training at the Northern Hospital, four years as the Victorian Chairman of Training, and a further 4 years as the Chairman of Plastic Surgery training for Australia and New Zealand. Richard also served on council for the Australian Society of Plastic Surgery for six years.
Richard is an active member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.Book an appointment with Dr Richard Bloom
