Lavish Cosmetic Surgery Clinic was established in 2006 to address the demand for caring and committed professionals in the Cosmetic Surgery & Medicine industry.
We appreciate that all women have very special and unique needs. We know that when considering Cosmetic or Plastic Surgery or related procedures, your concerns are often very personal and sensitive. We understand and can relate to the concerns and issues many women experience.
The decision to have Cosmetic Surgery is very personal and each individual has specific aims, goals and expectations. It is also very important to be fully informed about, and understand the potential risks & complications involved. Only then can you make your final decision. All surgical consultations are with our doctors personally.
We listen to each patient’s main concerns and needs, and tailor any treatments to the individual. We take the time to provide guidance and advice on all options, both surgical and non-surgical, in a professional and caring environment. We will advise and guide you, but of course the final decision is up to you.
We take the time to listen to our patients, providing guidance and advice according to their individual needs.
We are aware that many ladies can feel intimidated when seeking advice on Cosmetic Rejuvenation procedures and we place a great deal of importance on communication, understanding and confidentiality. Whether it be antiwrinkle treatments, breast reduction or enlargement, a tummy-tuck or facelift, you can be assured that you will be treated with the highest degree of respect and empathy.
Females who visit our clinic do so without feeling intimidated or embarrassed. Of course all consultations are strictly confidential. You will never be rushed or pushed to proceed with any surgery or treatment.
There are many factors which influence our decisions with regard to cosmetic procedures. Many of us want to make the most of what we’ve already got by enhancing our own personal features to look our best but don’t necessarily want any drastic changes. A subtle enhancement of their own natural features is usually what they wish to achieve.
From a technical viewpoint doctors who perform Cosmetic Surgery aim for symmetry, proportion, balance and harmony, however there is no such thing as perfection and one very important aspect of achieving a satisfying result is having realistic expectations.
We no longer want to undertake drastic measures to achieve our goal of looking the best that we possibly can, which is why having a female doctor is sought after by so many… a woman understands the needs of women.
Preserving youthfulness and looking physically healthy generally promotes a positive self-image and high self-esteem. We believe in the “look good – feel good” approach and advocate making the most of what you’ve got. Most women do not need nor desire drastic surgery to achieve this.
Our advice to anyone seeking Cosmetic Surgery is to find an experienced and reputable doctor that you trust, one who has the utmost respect for you and your body and listens to your main concerns. Do not feel pressured or pushed into anything. And finally, trust your instincts and your female intuition – they are usually correct!
We pride ourselves on understanding what women want and are dedicated to helping you to achieve a new you.
…because we care

Dr Bambit’s passion has always been Cosmetic Surgery. In 1998, she decided to explore all options regarding specific training in Cosmetic Surgery. She met with several colleagues from various surgical backgrounds in order to ask for their advice with regard to pursuing training in her desired field.
After much consideration Dr Bambit chose to undertake a mentorship with Dr Bruce Fox in 1999. Dr Fox is a highly respected doctor who has been performing Cosmetic Surgery procedures for more than 25 years and during that time has been at the forefront of introducing innovative Cosmetic Surgery procedures to Australia.

Dr Bambit moved to the Sunshine Coast and opened her own practice, Lavish Cosmetic Surgery Clinic at the end of 2006.
Dr Bambit recommends that all patients should do their research before pursuing Cosmetic Surgery.
Patients should check not only the credentials of the doctor, but also the number of years of experience and training the doctor has had specifically in Cosmetic Surgery.
