Highlights from 2016

Saturday, December 17, 2016

It’s almost Christmas! Where has the year gone? As we inch closer to the end of another year we thought we would take this opportunity to recap on the year that was.  2016 has been a really positive year for Mr Mutimer and the team at Brighton Plastic Surgery.

Mr Mutimer was recently appointed President of Interplast Australia & New Zealand.  Interplast is a charity that Keith has been involved with since 1984 so he was honoured to take the position and continue his work with this remarkable organisation into 2017.

In August Mr Mutimer was made an honorary member of the Sri Lankan College of Surgeons (CSSL). He received this fellowship in recognition of his distinguished services in the field of surgery.  Through his extensive work with Interplast and in conjunction with the Sri Lankan College of Surgeons, he has played an integral part in setting up the CSSL plastic surgery training program.

Dr Ramin Shayan was in the spotlight this year for his pioneering work in treating lipoedema and lymphoedema patients. In June he was featured in a story on Lipoedema on Channel 10’s The Project and he continues to see an ever increasing number of patients seeking treatment for these debilitating conditions.

Our day surgery maintained its full accreditation this year. This means that all the standards that are set by ISO (international Standards Organisation) and the NSQHSS (National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards) were met with no findings or follow up required in any of the 300 plus areas examined, a pretty impressive outcome for a relatively small practice.

Which leads us to finish with our face lift! Not the kind you are automatically thinking of but a new “front” to Brighton Plastic Surgery.  We will be closed from midday 23rd December and will be re-opening 16th Jan.  During this time the majority of work to our “new face” will take place so when you next pop in to see us, things may look a little fresher ;)

Finally we would like to take this opportunity to wish you a safe and happy festive season. We look forward to seeing you in 2017.

As we continue to closely monitor and respond to the current COVID-19 situation, we’d like to advise of the following changes to our business operations as of 30th March 2020.

We remain open, however our surgeons are currently only seeing patients for skin cancers and trauma. As a result, our practice may operate on limited hours some days.

Wherever possible we have moved to telehealth for other appointments.   We are not able to undertake any wrinkle reduction or cosmetic treatments until further notice, we are however taking bookings for when it is safe to resume.

For urgent (trauma) cases arising after hours – we’ve added after hour surgeon contact details to our main office phone. If you call and our practice is closed, you’ll receive further instruction. Please note that contacting surgeons out of hours is only for urgent cases.

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate these challenging times.

Please follow us on Facebook to stay abreast of any new developments as we’ll post timely updates there, and on our website. As always if you have any questions or concerns please call the practice on 03 9592 0522.

The team at Brighton Plastic Surgery would like to assure clients that we continue to closely monitor the unfolding COVID-19 situation and are implementing all necessary safety measures and closely following Health Department Guidelines.

Our practice continues to operate at this time however many changes are in place. Additional measures have been implemented to protect our patients and staff at this uncertain time. Some of these include:

  • Hand wash stations: you’ll find these at our entrance. All people entering our premises are required to thoroughly wash hands on arrival, and upon leaving.
  • Phone appointments – it is not always possible, however where we’re able we are now providing phone consultations, limiting the number of people passing through our practice whilst still providing important patient care and guidance.
  • Limited number of people in our practice at any given time– at this time only essential support people may attend a client’s appointment.  Please be mindful that as a support person you may be asked to wait in your car. If you are attending an appointment on your own, you may also be asked to wait in your car until we are ready for your appointment. The seating capacity in the reception area is deliberately very limited
  • Cashless payments – We’ve moved to cashless payments wherever possible.
If you are unwell you will not be able to attend the practice for your appointment. Please phone us and we will guide you in regard to your ongoing care.

If you have an upcoming appointment our staff will contact you to discuss how this will be managed for you.

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate these challenging times.
