New Patient Information

An appointment with Dr Campbell-Lloyd is an opportunity to learn how we can help you achieve your goals. We’re here to make things as simple as possible. We strongly encourage you to do some research before your appointment, and bring a list of questions to ask.

When you call to make an appointment, our staff will take some basic details from you including your email address. You will be sent a link to our online patient portal. We will need to collect some of your personal information prior to your appointment. Please ensure that you read our privacy and fees policies here.

If you are seeing us for reconstructive surgery, your referring doctor may already have sent an electronic copy of your referral to us, but please also ensure you upload a copy of the referral to the patient portal. If you are seeing us for cosmetic surgery, we strongly recommend that you have a referral, to be entitled to a rebate for your consultation.

We are pleased to offer comprehensive telehealth services using Coviu. We are able to offer both pre-operative and post-operative consultations with Dr Campbell-Lloyd, however please note that a face-to-face consultation will be required before any surgical booking is confirmed. The Coviu platform allows us to screen-share to facilitate demonstration of before-and-after photos for all telehealth consultations, just as we would in person.

Reconstructive Breast Surgery Procedures

  • You will need a referral for all reconstructive procedures from your GP or another specialist.
  • We will provide you with a detailed plan for surgery including any necessary item numbers so that you can check your level of cover with your health fund.
  • All initial consultations for reconstructive breast surgery last for 45 minutes. You will have an in-depth discussion with Dr Campbell-Lloyd to assess the most appropriate options for you. You will have detailed photography performed to help in planning your reconstruction. Consultations are $300, and you will receive a Medicare rebate of $76.80. Due to the complexity of the procedures we perform, you will be required to have a second 30 minute consultation to finalise a surgical plan and sign a consent form. If you are unsure about proceeding and wish to have a further discussion, or request more than two consultations you will be billed per subsequent visit of $100 with a rebate of $38.60.

Aesthetic Breast Surgery Procedures

  • You do not need a referral for aesthetic procedures, but if you have one you will be entitled to claim the Medicare rebate on your consultation. We strongly recommend patients considering breast implant removal or body contouring surgery (including breast reduction) do seek a referral for their consultation.
  • We will provide you with a detailed plan for any surgery, with cost estimates including any applicable item numbers, so that you can check your level of cover with your health fund.
  • In aesthetic cases, where item numbers apply, you will still have out-of-pocket costs that your health fund will not cover. However, where your policy includes cover for applicable item numbers, your health fund may cover the costs of your hospitalisation, theatre fees and possibly prosthetic/implant costs.
  • All aesthetic consultations last for 45 minutes. You will have a detailed discussion with Dr Campbell-Lloyd to assess the most appropriate options for you. You will have clinical photography (and careful sizing for certain procedures) performed to help in planning your surgery. Consultations are $300, and you will receive a Medicare rebate of $76.80. Due to the complexity of the procedures we perform, you will be required to have a second 30 minute consultation to finalise a surgical plan and sign a consent form. Should further consultations be reuqired, this can be arranged.
