Your pre-surgery appointments

Dr Vlad Illie will see you twice before proceeding with your surgical intervention. Additionally, an assessment will be conducted to evaluate your mental health well-being. For your first appointment, please provide a referral letter from your general practitioner or preferred medical practitioner.

During the consultation, Dr ILLIE will conduct a thorough assessment and discuss his recommended treatment plan, presenting various options tailored to your needs. He will outline all available options, including surgery with him, procedures by other practitioners, non-surgical treatments, or opting out of surgery. Dr ILLIE will provide detailed information about the surgery, anesthesia, pain management, location, and potential outcomes over time.

You will also view before-and-after photos from consenting patients, and you will be informed about the risks, complications, recovery process, activity limitations, and the potential need for revisional surgery.

After the first consultation, you will receive a comprehensive quote covering surgery fees, anesthesia, hospital fees, aftercare and any additional supplies. If the operation is covered by your healthcare fund, you will receive the item numbers for the procedure.

Preparing for surgery

Once you decide to proceed with the operation, our team will handle all the details of booking and planning your procedure. We will provide you with the necessary information on pre-operative requirements, your recovery, aftercare appointments, and post-operative instructions.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a professional fee for consultations with Dr ILLIE, and can I get a Medicare rebate?

Consultations with Dr ILLIE are essential for developing a tailored surgical plan and preparing you for surgery, typically lasting 30 to 45 minutes for aesthetic and reconstructive procedures, and 15 min for skin cancer surgery.  Consultations incur a professional fee, and patients can often obtain a Medicare rebate for part of the fee, depending on the procedure.

If unsure about your goals, you can also opt for a brief complimentary consultation to assess if a cosmetic procedure is suitable for you.

However, there is no charge for the follow-up consultations after surgery. 

What are the costs associated with my procedure, and will my insurance cover any part of it?

Dr Vlad ILLIE’s professional fee is based on the duration and complexity of your surgical procedures. You will receive a comprehensive quote covering performing your surgery to the highest possible standard, anesthesia, hospital fees, aftercare and any additional supplies. 

For price guidelines on aesthetic and reconstructive procedures, please follow this link.

If your surgery is medically indicated rather than purely cosmetic, Medicare and some private health insurance providers may cover part of the costs. This coverage depends on the specific indications for your surgery, the type of surgery, and your level of health insurance. For certain procedures, such as airway surgery rhinoplasty, abdominoplasty, breast reduction, breast lift, breast reconstruction and post-weight loss surgery, rebate item numbers may apply, and your private health insurance should cover a portion of the total costs. You will need to discuss your coverage directly with your insurer after your consultation with Dr ILLIE. After your consultation, you will receive a total cost estimate with all the item numbers included. 

Choosing the right plastic surgeon for you: a checklist

Selecting the appropriate Plastic Surgeon is a very personal decision and an essential step in your journey towards achieving your desired aesthetic goals. Prior to deciding your surgeon or proceeding with surgery, thorough research and careful consideration of the following factors are important:

  • Is my chosen surgeon a fully qualified and experienced Specialist Plastic Surgeon?
  • What specific surgical techniques does the surgeon use, and are they up-to-date with the latest advancements in the field?
  • Will my procedure be conducted in a fully accredited hospital?
  • What is the expected recovery process for the procedure, and what post-operative care will be provided by the surgeon?
  • How does the surgeon handle potential complications or adverse outcomes during and after surgery?
  • Ultimately, do you feel comfortable and confident in the surgeon’s abilities and approach to your treatment?

Dr Vlad ILLIE advises patients to be cautios and conduct thorough research before making their decision. The right plastic surgeon is not only important in achieving your aesthetic goals but also ensures a safe and satisfying surgical experience.
