Dr Eddy Dona has been a registered Specialist Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon since 2007 (Med. Reg. #: MED0001177175) and is a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons. From your first clinic visit, and throughout your surgical journey, Dr Dona and his team will be there to make it as smooth as possible.
As a youngster at school, Eddy considered two possible career options….one was an artist, the other was a doctor. His love of art was reflected in his HSC subject choice of 3 unit art, where his major art works topped the state and were part of the annual Art Express Exhibition (best of the HSC).
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, which Dr Dona believed to be a perfect fusion of art and surgery, and where he could express his true artistic flare. After a further 11 years of intense training Dr Dona became a fully qualified Cosmetic, 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 where Dr Dona was required to reconstruct the bodies of those affected by trauma and cancer. He firmly believes that only through the experience and skills of “restoring” a person’s normal form is a surgeon able to comprehend what it is to be a true cosmetic plastic surgeon. “Enhancing someone’s natural beauty is easy for the surgeon who is also capable of recreating beauty that has been stolen” Dr Dona says.
Ensuring he stays abreast of the most advanced techniques, Sydney plastic surgeon Dr Eddy Dona regularly attends national and international conferences in Cosmetic Surgery. A comprehensive understanding of human aesthetics, a true artistic flare and a commitment to nothing less than exceptional, ensures Dr Dona’s patients are always in good hands.
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.”

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. However, you pay for experience, and most importantly, you pay for results. So whilst not always true, as the old saying goes, you 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 and government recognised “Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery” qualifications.
So what is the difference to the patients? The medical board of Australia have tried to make changes to better define these issues, yet the problem continues.

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 a penalty may apply.
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.
