Key Criteria for Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery and Skin Care Career Roles.

What we look for:

We are always open to hearing from friendly and motivated medical professionals, Plastic Surgeons and Assistants, Registered Nurses, Cosmetic Injecting Clinicians and Dermal Therapists as well as GPs that meet our KEY candidate criteria.

1. Solid knowledge of and interest in Cosmetic Procedures and Plastic Surgery.

Read our website and blog for more details. Or visit the website of ASAPS (USA) for more information on the industry and what plastic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic treatments can help patients to achieve.

The following are useful books & blog on the Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Services Industry that you could read:

2. Knowledge of a Practice Management System (PMS) is helpful for a career in the Aesthetic Industry.

The PMS is the heart of any practice.

  • It is our patient database, our Clinic diary, and our financial and reporting system.
  • Our PMS is called Genie, but most PMS are similar in nature.
  • You could also benefit from watching Genie Medical System training Videos online.
  • This can help ensure that PMS software is something you’ll be able to master if you are selected for a role at one of our Clinics.

3. Proven Communication Skills and former Customer Service & Sales Experience

  • You will also need to know how to explain cosmetic procedures and promote Specialist services.
  • Furthermore, you need to understand the differences in the types of Surgeons who perform this type of service.
  • This includes good communication skills to help explain the benefits of various procedures to prospective Patients as well as risks and recovery information.

4. Skills needed skills for a job in the cosmetic surgery or aesthetic industry, beauty businesses and Melbourne plastic surgery groups include:

  • Rapport building, empathy, appreciative questioning as well as, high-level listening skills.
  • You will also need to have the ability to ascertain what is truly important to each and every individual patient who contacts us or steps into our cosmetic plastic surgery clinic.
  • Furthermore, you will need to be able to identify and overcome patients unrealistic fears about cosmetic surgery.
  • Proactively negotiating scheduling availability when a patient is interested in a procedure and wants a specific surgery date or specific Surgeon is also a necessary skill. We have several sought after and top-ranked experienced Melbourne Plastic Surgeons to choose from.

You need to be calm and help reassure patients about any unrealistic fears or concerns they have, using extensive knowledge of procedures, typical recovery times and healing aids such as Healite II or Rapid Recovery Packs.

Most people take a while to decide whether or not they’ll pursue cosmetic procedures, so you’ll also need to be proactive in:

  • making follow up calls
  • answering numerous questions and alleviating unreasonable fears
  • And, helping us to host our public events and patient information nights

There are many communications and sales influence books that may help with these skills, including several books that may be useful for patient consulting for cosmetic surgery.

Listen to Catherine Maley’s podcast to develop your cosmetic surgery skills.

5. Delivering a High Level of Patient Care

Aesthetic patients are NOT the same as regular Healthcare patients – the choice to have cosmetic surgery is generally an optional one. It can also be more expensive than some patients anticipate. Hence, many patients take time to decide, whilst investigating many options, including the dangerous option of going overseas for surgery with an unknown practitioner who is not FRACS qualified as a Specialist Plastic Surgeon.

Aesthetic patients also expect a higher standard of care, respect and confidentiality from their Clinicians and Surgeons.

This often requires:

  • Building a longer-term relationship
  • Delivering an awesome Patient Experience
  • Developing empathy with aesthetic patients and reassuring them
  • Developing an ongoing patient plan and procedure scheduling
  • A friendly attitude to post-op support wound care and changing dressings
  • Managing any potential complications
