Surgical Philosophy

A personal word from Dr Rodrigo Teixeira, MBBS, FRACS (PLAST)

The pursuit of beauty should not follow social media trends or be influenced by propaganda. I know it is cliché, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. My approach is of respect for your identity and I try to see it through your eyes to understand your concerns, but I rely on my experienced eyes to see you as whole, identify your unique features to unveil your beauty.


I believe in having a repertoire of treatments and procedures that can be carefully selected to address an specific concern. They are powerful tools when combined with a meticulous approach and attention to detail.

I care about my patients and what I do for them with emphasis on patient experience, quality and safety. I offer treatments that are not only evidence based, but that also achieve good results safely. It is a priviledge to be entrusted with their care.
