Our Team Geelong
Dr. Richard Rahdon

Dr. Rahdon was admitted to the Royal Australian College of Surgeons after 17 years of training. He then undertook further fellowship training in plastic and reconstructive surgery in Oxford, UK. He returned to Australia after further experience with a highly respected cosmetic surgeon in London. This means he has the qualifications and experience that you can trust.
