DR ALEX PHOON
Dr Alexander Phoon is a fully qualified plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgeon with the Royal Australian College of Surgeons and the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons. As a fourth generation surgeon of Eurasian background, the essence of excellent surgical care, attentions to detail and sound communication skills have been imparted upon him from a very early age. Being born and raised in Sydney into such a medical family provided a never-ending source of inspiration and there were few surprises when he chose to pursue a career in plastic surgery.
“When I was growing up, I was inspired by my father’s commitment to his patients. They were much more than patients to him. He treated them all as if they were part of his own family. That deep commitment to his patients underpins the basis of that special relationship that exists between a patient and their treating doctor”.
He commenced his medical training at the University of New South Wales almost 20 years ago, but it was a placement in the infamous Baragwanath Hospital (Johannesburg, South Africa) that finally cemented his decision to become a plastic surgeon. “Amid all this confronting trauma and reconstructive work, I had finally found my calling,” says Dr Phoon. “The dedication to a life serving those in need of medical help and it was with plastic surgery I found true purpose.”
Dr. Phoon was awarded best surgical resident and surgical registrar multiple times and credits those awards to an understanding of the value of hard work, treating others as equal and above all, care of his patients. He is still active in surgical teaching and mentoring younger surgeons and was even awarded the Loewenthal Medal for excellence in surgical teaching in 2013. He is appointed at the University of Sydney where he attained a master of surgery in plastic surgery in 2005.
As part of his overseas fellowship he spent seven months visiting New York, including time at the prestigious Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Care Centre, The Manhattan Eye Ear and Throat Hospital and numerous other world leaders in the field of aesthetic and reconstructive Surgery around the New York and Tri-state area of USA. In 2011, Dr. Phoon spent a year in Cambridge United Kingdom where he was the senior microsurgical fellow undertaking a tremendous volume of challenging breast surgery work. He has recently been appointed a consultant plastic surgeon at the prestigious Royal Prince Alfred Hospital specialising in all aspects of plastic surgery.
Dr. Phoon has lectured both nationally and internationally and continues to push the boundaries of plastic surgical innovation at home and abroad. Dr. Phoon has a special interest in cosmetic breast surgery such as breast augmentation and is proud to be part of The Breast Clinic.
