Brief biography

Dr Benjamin Norris has trained for over 20 years in Sydney and overseas to become fully qualified as a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon with particular knowledge in Cosmetic Surgery. It takes this long to become a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

After finishing medical school in Auckland, Dr Norris trained at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford, United Kingdom, under the supervision of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Professor Michael Poole. On returning to Australasia, he trained first in General Surgery to broaden his surgical skills before training exclusively in Plastic Surgery.

After completing his Plastic Surgery training in Sydney, Dr Norris was invited to take a Consultant post at the prestigious Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, United Kingdom. He spent 18 months working with George Cormack and George Lamberty, authors of a definitive textbook on Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Whilst overseas, Dr Norris performed a large number of cosmetic breast procedures using short-scar and minimal-scar techniques.

Having returned to Sydney, Dr Norris has taken up a teaching-hospital appointment at Westmead Hospital where he performs reconstructive and microsurgery procedures for patients with cancers of the face, head and neck regions, as well as complex trauma.

To maintain a standard of care for his patients and to ensure exposure to the latest techniques, Dr Norris has an ongoing program that involves travelling to Cosmetic Plastic Surgery centres throughout Europe and the United States.
