Dr Eddy Dona

As a youngster at school, Eddy considered two possible career options….one was to be an **tist, the other was a doctor. His love of creativity was reflected in his HSC subject choice of 3-unit a*t, where his major works topped the state and were part of the annual A*t Express Exhibition.

However, a career in medicine beckoned, and after finishing his degree in medicine at the University of Sydney, he pursued a surgical career. Of all the surgical specialties available, the one that he knew he was made for was Plastic Surgery. After a further 11 years of intense training Dr Dona became a fully qualified Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon.

Of course, plastic surgery is far more than cosmetic surgery, with a large part of the training and practice dedicated to reconstructive work. Indeed, despite the demands on his time, for the first 15 years of his specialist career as a plastic surgeon Dr Eddy Dona dedicated part of his time working in some of Sydney’s busiest public hospitals, including providing emergency on-call services. It was here that Dr Dona often looked after all the non-cosmetic plastic surgery issues, such as hand and skin cancer surgery, including trauma and reconstructive microsurgery.

Ensuring he stays abreast of the latest techniques, Sydney plastic surgeon Dr Eddy Dona regularly attends national and international conferences in Plastic Surgery. A comprehensive understanding of human aesthetics and a lifetime commitment to learning is required in an ever-changing and demanding specialty.

Over the years, as a specialist plastic surgeon Dr Eddy Dona has been involved in the training of countless doctors and future cosmetic plastic surgeons. “It’s vital to pass on your hard-earned wisdom to the future generation of surgeons.”



Our clinic in the Sydney suburb of Bella Vista was custom designed with patient comfort and style in mind.

We focus on you, and always aim to provide a level of personal service and facilities to allow you to enjoy a warm, relaxed, yet refined ambiance.

Our personalised care begins with your first contact to our clinic through to your consultation where we will discuss available options, anticipated results, and recommended procedures. After an examination and evaluation, you’ll receive personalised recommendations tailored to your needs.

This individualised approach ensures you are knowledgeable, comfortable and confident with your personal medical decisions.


Quite simply, our philosophy is to treat our patients like we would our family and make you feel as comfortable as possible.

YES. If you have paid to see and have a consultation with specialist plastic surgeon Dr Dona, and assuming you are a suitable candidate for surgery, then he will be performing your surgery.

Yes, plenty of doctors offer the same operations. Only you can decide what is going to be appropriate for your circumstances. There is also a good reason why most Australian healthcare professionals advise against cheap overseas surgery – you usually get what you pay for.

Once you make the personal decision to get cosmetic surgery, your first essential step is choosing a qualified surgeon.
The first thing to understand that any doctor with basic medical degree can call themselves a ‘Cosmetic Surgeon.’ There are no specialist qualifications, skills, training or experience required to label oneself and indeed operate on patient as a “Cosmetic Surgeon”

In contrast, a Plastic Surgeon is a doctor who has undergone some 8 – 12 years of additional extensive supervised specialist qualifications, the doctor then must pass comprehensive written and oral exams. Only after successfully completing such rigorous training does one achieve Royal Australasian College of Surgeons recognised “Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery” qualifications.

So, what is the difference to the patients? The medical board of Australia (AHPRA) have tried to make changes to better define these issues, yet the issue continues and is largely unresolved.

To schedule a consultation please contact the clinic 1300 373 662.  At peak times Dr Dona can be booked 3 months in advanced.   If you can be seen at short notice please ask to be placed on our wait list.

There is ample off-site parking available however can become very busy during peak times. We recommend to allow enough time to find parking.

Anyone who is both physically and mentally healthy, who has a realistic expectation as to the outcome of the procedure can be a good candidate.

Dr Eddy Dona has operating privileges at a number of fully accredited hospitals or day surgery facilities where your surgery will be performed.

It is important to understand that operating time is extremely valuable and highly sought after. If you need to cancel your surgery, it is essential you do so in writing and as soon as possible. A minimum notice of 4 weeks prior to your scheduled date of surgery needs to be provided to our office, as the closer to your procedure you cancel, the more difficult it is to offer this reserved space to another person. Not rescheduling and/or providing less than 4 weeks’ notice to our office may incur a penalty. This will be discussed at the time of booking your surgery as minimum time periods vary depending on the surgical procedure and time of year.

No, whether your surgery requires sedation or a full general anaesthetic, the patient will need someone to drive them home and stay with them for at least 24 hours after the procedure.

There is an increased risk of developing blood clots (deep vein thrombosis) in the weeks following surgery. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can be a potentially life threatening condition.

Due to this increased risk we advise you to avoid any lengthy flights in the first month following surgery. If you do resume flying we suggest the use of compression stockings, in-flight exercises and drinking plenty of water. After 2 weeks following your surgery, you may also use aspirin, as directed, before a flight to reduce the risk of blood clots.
