Philosophy

Dr. Sophie Ricketts - Plastic Surgeon

As a specialist plastic surgeon, my practice comprises both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery utilising contemporary techniques. I am passionate about aesthetic and reconstructive facial surgery and undertook further subspecialist training in this field. I derive great satisfaction from assisting patients achieve the best version of themselves and also offer a highly qualified service in breast and body surgery. My team of support staff and nurses help me provide a wholistic, professional service where your surgical results are achieved with care and compassion.

In addition to my private practice, I hold specialist consultant plastic surgery positions at The Alfred and St Vincent’s Hospitals in Melbourne. I am also an active volunteer with Interplast, a not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to ‘repair bodies and rebuild lives’ by providing surgical services to patients as well as mentorship and teaching to local surgeons in areas of the Asia Pacific.

Training

Dr. Sophie Ricketts - Branded Collateral

Dr. Sophie Ricketts
Specialist Plastic Surgeon, MBBS FRACS (Plast)

I graduated with Honors in Bachelor of Medical Science and Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Tasmania. I relocated to Melbourne to begin my surgical training.

I completed four years of Basic Surgical Training at St Vincent’s hospital in Melbourne. I was then selected by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons to train as a Specialist Plastic Surgeon. This training took me to many of the large metropolitan Melbourne hospitals including The Royal Melbourne, The Alfred, The Royal Children’s and St Vincent’s hospitals. Working with world leaders in the field of plastic surgery, I believe my training here in Melbourne was first class.

This Advanced Specialist Training, completed in 2010, gave me a Fellowship in Plastic Surgery through the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. This is the highest qualification in Plastic Surgery.

Overseas experience

I then travelled to Canada to train at Toronto’s major trauma centre, Sunnybrook Hospital. It is here that I developed my surgical skills in rhinoplasty, adult craniofacial and trauma surgery. I also took some time away from the trauma to refine the skills I had learned during training in facial aesthetic surgery.

My time in Toronto allowed me to mature my surgical skills. I found that learning to manage facial trauma and facial bone fractures helped me achieve excellence in facial aesthetic surgery. I learnt the importance of the facial skeleton as the foundation for the face, its support of overlying structures, and the key elements of reversing the aging process.

Public hospital work

Twelve years after graduating from medical school, I returned to Melbourne to take up two busy city hospital appointments at St Vincent’s and the Alfred Hospitals and start my private practice. I was delighted to be invited to work at two complementary institutions. At The Alfred I help patients who have experienced trauma and St Vincent’s is where I reconstruct imperfections that are the result of cancer such as breast cancer, oral cancer and sarcoma.

Choosing your surgeon

Dr. Sophie Ricketts - Certificates

There are two groups of practitioners that call themselves Plastic or Cosmetic surgeons.

One group are Specialist Plastic Surgeons with formal and lengthy surgical training as part of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS). They have the qualification FRACS (Plast) written after their name. I belong to this group.

The other group have a medical school degree and an interest in cosmetic surgery but have not completed training and fellowship examinations with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

If you are looking for a Specialist Plastic Surgeon trained in all aspects of discipline with the highest possible qualification, then look for FRACS (Plast) in addition to MBBS as their qualifications.
