First Consultation

Your First Consultation with Dr Kernohan

Before your first consultation with Dr Michael Kernohan you will be asked to complete a Patient Registration & Medical Questionnaire Form that will be sent to you via email or post. This form will enable Dr Kernohan to collect important medical information; including your previous medical history and current medications as well as your contact details.

Are you considering cosmetic surgery? If so, Dr Kernohan recommends that you see him for TWO appointments prior to surgery.

At your initial consultation, Dr Kernohan will take your medical history in detail. After, Dr Kernohan will examine you to assess your individual needs and suitability for surgery. This first consultation may take approximately 30 minutes.

You will also be able to view before and after photographs from past patients. Dr Kernohan will also provide you with a patient information sheets detailing the type of surgery you have discussed.

It is important that you carefully read these information sheets. You should also write down any questions to discuss with Dr Kernohan at your next consultation.

You are welcome to bring someone with you to the consultation such as your partner, friend or relative as this may assist you to remember as much information as possible, and you can then discuss it with them later.

After Your First Consultation

Following the initial surgery consultation, another appointment for a consultation is normally made to discuss any further questions you may have. You will also be provided with a written quotation of surgical costs from Dr  Kernohan’s team before this appointment. This surgical quotation is then valid for one year.

Dr Kernohan will ensure that any procedure is explained as clearly as possible so that you can understand what may be involved and that you are fully informed.

You may also find it helpful to read the information we have provided that includes some guidelines to assist you in choosing your surgeon and understanding the training and qualifications of a plastic surgeon.

Do I Need a Medical Referral?

Please note that patients don’t always need a referral from a GP or other medical professional to make an appointment to see Dr Kernohan.

If your procedure is purely cosmetic then a referral is NOT needed. If your procedure is to be covered by Medicare and Private Health fund then a current referral will be required.

If you are unsure whether or not you need a referral please contact us to discuss. In most cases a referral from GP or medical professional is beneficial.
