Dr Eddy Dona
Dr Eddy Dona is a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons and one of the most in demand Plastic Surgeons in Australia. From your first clinic visit, and after seeing just a small sample of some of the exceptional results achieved, you’ll understand why.
“ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS WHAT SEPARATES
THE EXCEPTIONAL FROM THE ORDINARY”
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, Dr Eddy Dona still commits part of his time to working in some of Sydney’s busiest public hospitals, including providing emergency on-call services. It is here where Dr Dona is often 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 future cosmetic plastic surgeons, and more recently, he has even provided some training to cosmetic surgeons (non-plastic surgeons). Of course, many have asked why would you train doctors that could one day be your possible “competition”? The answer to this is simple, “You can train certain skills, but you can’t give the gift of true artistry. After all, even Picasso trained many artists, but their was only ever one Picasso!”
