Patrick Walsh


I am an ear, nose and throat surgeon trained in Queensland. During my training I took an interest in rhinoplasty surgery and went to study this further in the UK in Guildford.

I have been working in Melbourne now for 8 years and performed over 500 rhinoplasties. I currently average 3 to 5 rhinoplasties per week and have a policy of no more than 3 rhinoplasties in a single day.

I like conservative surgery and believe that the best result is the nose that draws no attention to itself, allows appreciation of the rest of the face and which of course breathes well. 3D modelling is essential to the planning of the surgery which occurs during the analysis consultation.

My loves in life are my family, rhinoplasty, motorbike riding, growing trees, boxing and brewing beer.

Lauren Walsh


I am an aesthetic nurse practitioner trained in Melbourne. I have a background in general and critical care nursing prior to going into aesthetics in 2012. I completed my masters degree in advanced nursing (Nurse Practitioner) in 2019 where I specialised in facial aesthetics.

The majority of my work is in cosmetic injectables where I use techniques which are aimed to provide natural results.

I love my family, my work, watching dodgy reality tv and exercising.
You will not find me on social media as I believe in promoting a healthy body image and not comparing yourself to unrealistic images.
