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

There are a number of useful books on the Plastic Surgery & Cosmetic Services Industry that you could read.

These include:

  1. 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 PSM software is something you’ll be able to master if you are selected for a role at one of our Clinics.
  1. Proven Communication Skills and former Sales Experience

  • You need to know how to explain cosmetic procedures and promote Specialist services; you need to understand the differences in 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.

About the Cosmetic Surgery, Plastic &and Reconstructive Surgery and Cosmetic Injecting Industry

Cosmetic Surgery, Plastic Surgery and cosmetic injections and skincare services operate in a competitive field.

  • Our growing team prides ourselves on offering patient care excellence well BEYOND the standard of smaller groups and sole practitioners. 
  • In particular, this requires advanced patient education and active listening, to enable a prospective client to get a sense of who we are and what we do, but to also know in depth what each patient is seeking – and to be able to communicate whether or not what they are seeking is within reach via plastic surgery practices.

Patient education and good communication help plastic surgery patients better understand the premium care they will receive at our Melbourne locations (near Richmond, Kew & Camberwell as well as Berwick and Williamstown).

It also helps patients feel more comfortable to attend a consultation with our Specialist Surgeons. Because not everyone knows what to expect at a first cosmetic plastic surgery consultation.

Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Procedures are offered using numerous interpersonal, rapport building and education/training skills, including influential and empathetic communication skills.

Needed skills for job openings in the cosmetic industry, beauty businesses and Melbourne plastic surgery groups include:

  • Rapport building, empathy, appreciative questioning and high-level listening skills.
  • An ability to ascertain what is truly important to each and every individual patient who contacts us or steps into our cosmetic plastic surgery clinic.
  • Being able to identify and overcoming 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 (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
  • 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. These are listed at the bottom of this blog.

  1. Deliver 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 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
