ABOUT US

Brighton Day Surgery was first accredited in 2001, and became a private day hospital. The practice grew significantly under the direction and ownership of Dr Julie Lawrence, a plastic surgeon until her retirement in 2016, and the subsequent sale of the business.

Brighton Day Surgery was purchased by Dr Lisa Marks in 2017, and successfully reaccredited in July 2017. There have been many changes since then, including new services, new doctors and more.

Brighton Day Surgery now has a plastic surgeon, a phlebologist, a skin cancer doctor, a dermatologist and a full cosmetic rejuvenation service including laser, cosmetic injectables and skin rejuvenation treatments, skincare products and makeup. 

As an accredited day hospital, eligible procedures are able to be billed to a patient’s private health insurance, reducing out of pocket costs, and removing the need for admission to a tertiary hospital. 

Innovation is the key to our success

Here at Brighton Day Surgery our staff are regularly attending training to ensure our patients experience the most recent treatment protocols and best possible results. We are constantly reviewing our services and the patient results from these services to ensure the best possible outcomes.

Brighton Day Surgery has a robust quality review system, which allows us to continue to improve patient safety and outcomes, and ensure we follow best practice guidelines. We are quick to adapt and innovate where a genuine improvement is identified.

We want to change people’s lives

At Brighton Day Surgery we believe that healthcare should be accessible to all. Our philosophy is to help you be the best you can for your age, lifestyle and health, whether you are 18 or 98. Read more about our services here.
