Author: Dr Isolde Hertess 2-minute read
A unique female perspective

No matter your age and stage in life, you deserve to be comfortable and confident in your own skin. Our clinic is primarily female focused, we are here to give our unique perspective on your surgery journey.

Dr Isolde Hertess has dedicated her entire career to helping women look and feel their best. Her ability to understand the challenges that women face has led to thousands of women across the country reaching out to our clinic. Her passion in supporting women and embracing their diversity is reflected in her pre and post surgery approach, the team that support her in clinic, and her ongoing commitment to women’s wellness.

Dedicated to women and helping them feel their best

With over 27 years’ of experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr Hertess is clear on her purpose, to lift women up and empower them. The beauty of her work is that she harnesses her female perspective, understanding that how we look can ultimately effect how we feel. Each patient is unique, and their surgery needs and reasons are different.

Dr Isolde Hertess is proud to be one of Australia’s leading female plastic and reconstructive surgeons - but it’s her humble and kind nature that set’s her apart. 

“I just love working with women and giving them a new lease on life through the work that I do. To help give someone the confidence they have been lacking, typically over a long period of time, is truly the most rewarding part of my job. Empowering women really does mean everything to me.”

Motherhood is an incredibly rewarding period in a woman’s life, but the effects of pregnancy, child birth and raising children can be intense on our bodies and the inner dialogue we carry about ourselves. Dr Hertess has experienced this first hand, with twin daughters and a son she knows the magnitude at which being a parent can change us physically and mentally. Through this, Dr Hertess can connect with her patients on a deeper level with mutual understanding that how we look can go hand in hand with how we feel. 

Motherhood is a unique and rewarding journey

Whether you are in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s or 50’s - Dr Hertess is dedicated to ensuring that every woman who walks into her operating room, leaves knowing they have been taken care of, their desired outcomes have been achieved to our surgeon’s best ability and their lives have been positively impacted for the better. 

Dr Isolde Hertess began her medical profession in 1986 after graduating from Melbourne University’s Medical School. Driven by a passion to uplift women, she then went on to complete a further eight years of specialised training in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery.
