Learn more about Dr Bill Lyon and his Awards, Scholarships and Motivations

One of the most important things you should do when considering a doctor or surgeon for your procedure/s is making sure they have the appropriate training and experience. Dr Bill Lyon also appreciates that because of the nature of his work he often knows more about his patients than they do of him. On the blog he chatted to our blogger so you could learn more about Dr Bill Lyon and his Awards, Scholarships and Motivations. Here’s a snapshot of his life outside of being a busy Cosmetic Surgeon.

Dr Lyon says one of his favourite parts of a Cosmetic Surgeon is meeting people from all different walks of life and backgrounds. “I feel truly blessed to be able to change people’s lives. There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing the transformation in a very quiet, shy and reserved young woman who underwent a conservative breast augmentation to become into a more confident outgoing person.”

He says that’s also why he feels it’s an incredibly important part of a surgeon’s responsibility to provide appropriate support for patients after surgery, being one of the most crucial times for a patient’s recovery. “This is incredibly important, I always ensure they have my mobile number and are able to contact me when they feel they need to. I will see them personally several times after the procedure and am always open to questions at anytime following.”

The inspiration to become a cosmetic surgeon stems from Dr Lyon’s artistic side. “I initially undertook cardiothoracic training, being drawn to the precision and technical aspects as well as the medicine involved. Cosmetic surgery allows me to expand my artistic demeanor.” It’s this artistic nature that sees Dr Lyon love his art, theatre and dance He also counts sailing, snowboarding and wine collecting as his hobbies!

Dr Lyon grew up in Adelaide with large amounts of time spent on coastal farming properties on the Eyre Peninsula. It is likely this down to earth upbringing as to why he says the most rewarding part of his job is dealing with healthy happy people.

Dr Lyon performs a range of cosmetic surgeries, just check out the list on this website, although he says he has three favourite. “I have 3 favourite procedures, not just one: Face and Neck Lifts because of the technical and artistic aspects; Breast Reduction Surgery because patients feel immediately free and; Breast Augmentation because it can give a woman so much confidence.”

Dr Lyon’s advice for anyone looking to undergo major cosmetic surgery is, “Understand why you want to do what you are seeking to do, ask lots of questions and go into your consultation with them written down. Ensure you are comfortable with your surgeon.”
