Surgical Philosophy

A personal word from Dr Chris Moss
MBBS, DIP. ANAT., FRACS (Plast)

“We live in very exciting times.  Since I began working with the ageing human face in 1994, our understanding of the field of aesthetic plastic surgery and medicine has grown at exponential pace.

I went through my training during a ‘renaissance’ in facial rejuvenation and rhinoplasty surgery – a special time that saw the popularisation of deep plane and short incision SMAS facelifts, tarsal fixation blepharoplasty, open structural rhinoplasty and micro-fat injection surgery. These procedures became available in the toolkit of a new generation of passionate modern aesthetic plastic surgeons specialising in the face.  Being there, at the forefront, as the various types of facial rejuvenation surgery developed – only to be again surpassed by even newer methods – to me, the last 20 years in this speciality have been as exciting as they have been revolutionary.

Compared with the “operated” look so often seen with older style techniques, modern facelift surgery incorporating advanced High SMAS technique, deep plane support, vertical lift and shorter incisions, now enables incredible, naturally beautiful results, with the advantage of minimal downtime and virtually undetectable scars.

These powerful techniques, made possible by sophisticated anatomical surgical design, nevertheless remain dependent on expert performance by a surgeon with a refined aesthetic judgment.

I also remain passionate about the field of modern Rhinoplasty surgery for nose reshaping, and the treatment of nasal airway concerns. I use a full range of modern advanced techniques including open structural and preservation rhinoplasty to deliver the best rhinoplasty results with a natural look.

My field continues to grow.  In fact it grows faster than ever before.  Some in the field tell me they simply can’t keep up… I have to admit I find new energy with every new development.  I’m here with my team to savour every moment for the benefit of our patients. 

My philosophy in navigating these rapid currents remains simple:

I only accept the best.

The best tools available to help me communicate with my patients and to understand their desires.

The best standards in patient education, especially in regard to the risks, expectations, limitations and realistic recovery periods for procedures.

The best evidence-based technologies and techniques to deliver treatments in the safest, least invasive and most effective way.

The most natural looking and long lasting results possible, with the least possible surgery and down time.

And lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the best, completely and utterly uncompromised dedication from my team, myself and, of course…  my hands.”

Professional Training

Dr Chris Moss commenced his medical training at University of Melbourne Medical School in 1981, graduating with honours in 1987. His residency and General Surgery training was completed at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and The Alfred Hospital.

Dr Chris Moss held Senior Tutor positions in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Melbourne and at the Stanford University of California, USA. In 1990 he received a Diploma in Human Anatomy. In 1996 he conducted twelve months of ground-breaking research in facial anatomy – and its applications to the safe surgical correction of facial ageing – as a surgical research Fellow in the Reconstructive Plastic Surgery Research Unit at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. This research is regularly cited in the scientific literature. He has subsequently helped develop techniques for safe surgical and non-surgical aesthetic corrections of the face and skin. Dr Moss continues to conduct clinical research and has published scientific articles.

Following the completion of his medical degree and 10 years of Surgical Training, he was awarded his specialist qualification in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery as a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 1998.

He was based at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital in New York and also received further training with Dr Bruce Connell in Los Angeles and with Dr Jim Stuzin in Miami. During this training Dr Moss gained expertise in cutting edge techniques for short scar facelift, High SMAS Facelift, advanced deep support Blepharoplasty, structural Micro Fat GraftingRhinoplasty and cosmetic breast surgery.

Upon returning to Melbourne, Dr Moss completed a further Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Fellowship with a focus on plastic surgery of the face.
