About Cosmetic Culture

CosmeticCulture Plastic Surgery provides you with exceptional surgical care - from a trusted professional.

In Australia and New Zealand, anyone who has completed a six year medical degree and has current medical registration is allowed to perform cosmetic surgery.  Many consumers are unaware of their surgeon's qualifications.

Dr Tim Papadopoulos is a fully qualified aesthetic plastic surgeon and a member of the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).  Most ASAPS members have undertaken 8-12 years of specialist training beyond their basic medical degree to become Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) which is the only institution accredited to train surgeons in Australia and New Zealand. If you are considering cosmetic surgery, we urge you to check the qualifications of your surgeon.

Our clinics, located at Pyrmont, Lane Cove and Penrith, Sydney, represent the highest standards in style and service. Our founder and medical director, Dr. Tim Papadopoulos, a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon, believes that plastic surgery is your first step to permanent lifestyle enhancement.

In order to best meet your individual needs before, during and after surgery, we have partnered a cosmetic plastic surgeon, dermatologists and aesthetic nurse specialists with a medical spa and laser centre to comfortably provide you with a multitude of approaches to achieve your best self through cosmetic surgery and skin care techniques.

The CosmeticCulture team is committed to working with you to develop a synergistic approach for enhancing your skin’s health and reducing the signs of aging.
