Important Note when Choosing Your Surgeon
In Australia, just about anyone with a basic medical degree is allowed to perform cosmetic surgery. In fact, currently there is no legislation in place which stops any doctor, even your local GP, without having undergone formal surgical training to call themselves a 'surgeon'.
Your only safeguard is to look for the letters FRACS (PLAS.) under a doctor's name and check that they are affiliated with the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), as only fully qualified plastic surgeons have these titles and memberships. They reflect many years of training & exams (at least 10 years) in surgery far beyond the medical school period.
