Welcome to the Melbourne home of NorthEast Plastic Surgery

Designed by Mr Patrick Tansley MD FRCS (Plast) (AHPRA Registration MED 0001651716) and Dr Sugitha Seneviratne FRACS (Plast) (AHPRA Registration MED 0001154659) to offer a bespoke cosmetic and reconstructive specialist plastic surgical service, we invite you to consult with us. Our practices are conveniently located to the North and East of Melbourne, in Essendon and Kew respectively.

At NorthEast Plastic Surgery we perform the entire spectrum of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery along with non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures.

NorthEast Plastic Surgery is a unique aesthetic specialist plastic surgical practice combining the very best of British and Australian experience, male and female surgeons and plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgical expertise. We undertake primary cosmetic plastic surgery of the face, breast and trunk to exacting standards. Until August 2022, Mr Tansley held the Office of President of the Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine (ACCSM). For full details of our surgeons see

Further, we have an established reputation for secondary corrective revisional procedures of ‘botched’ cosmetic surgery undertaken elsewhere, both from within Australia and abroad. We undertake detailed clinical assessment, comprehensive patient counselling and provide expert surgical care based on established surgical principles and innovative approaches.

Mr Tansley has contributed to the Australian Government Department of Health’s Therapeutic Goods Administration Expert Working Group concerning Breast Implant Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) since 2016. He has also been a Clinical Lead to the Australian Breast Device Registry since 2021. In 2022, he was invited to be a member of the Technical Advisory Group to the Independent Review of the Regulation of Health Practitioners in Cosmetic Surgery.

Mr Tansley has published and presented internationally on regulation to protect patients undergoing cosmetic surgery and has made multiple associated appearances in the media. The key recommendation of the Independent Review published on 1 September 2022 and accepted by the Medical Board of Australia and AHPRA, reflects the position proposed by Dr Tansley during his Presidency of the ACCSM.

NorthEast Plastic Surgery offers expertise regarding breast implants, including augmentation-mammoplasty. Mr Tansley and Dr Seneviratne are also experts in explantation of breast implants, in particular total “en bloc” capsulectomies where medically indicated and removal of all breast implant types. They are experienced in performing concurrent mastopexy (breast lift) and autologous fat graft surgery, where clinically appropriate.

NorthEast Plastic Surgery is an established facial aesthetic surgical practice. It is supported by experienced NorthEast MediClinic Dermal Therapy staff who undertake non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments. We also perform injectable therapies.
