Dr. Alys Saylor
BSc. MBBS FRACS (Plast.)
Dr. Alys Saylor specialises in the areas of breast, chest and abdominal rejuvenation and reconstruction, along with the treatment of skin cancers.
Dr. Saylor has obtained a formidable reputation since she first began practicing in Brisbane a decade ago, after completing her plastic surgery training in Melbourne and Brisbane. She has extensive expertise in both aesthetic (cosmetic) and reconstructive surgery and is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and an accredited member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).
Dr. Saylor has been described by her patients as firm but compassionate, intensely professional yet equally as supportive and always careful to realistically shape her patient’s expectations.
“I have always considered it an honour and a privilege to have the skill to be able to offer potentially life changing surgery to my patients.”
Dr. Saylor is very passionate about two particular aspects when it comes to her career; that her patients benefit most fully from the life changing results that plastic surgery may create – whether it be reconstructive or cosmetic – and ensuring the next generation of surgeons are trained and mentored to an exceptional level.
She has been an active teacher and advocate for surgical trainees over the years, having served as an interviewer of applicants and subsequently a supervisor to the Mater Hospital’s plastic surgery training program. Dr. Saylor also maintains a public appointment at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) and is avid to continue her involvement in the education of both her peers and trainees.
“The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons’ motto of Corpore Mens Melior Refecto is a perfect and very appropriate correlation to my desire to create the ideal outcome for every patient I treat. The motto – translated from Latin – means ‘The mind is better when the body has been restored,’ or ‘The spirit improves as the flesh is restored.”
Dr. Saylor feels fortunate to have always truly enjoyed all aspects of her profession and is consistently looking to enhance her own skills, having recently embarked on specialised training in medico-legal reporting.
Displaying a true dedication and flare for her chosen career, Dr. Saylor cites one of her many favourite Oscar Wilde quote:
“Technique is really personality. That is the reason why the artist cannot teach it, why the pupil cannot learn it, and why the aesthetic critic can understand it.”
