Reconstructive Surgery

Reconstructive Plastic Surgery

Reconstructive plastic surgery is indicated when structures in the body are abnormally formed or damaged by disease processes. Common pathologies and conditions that I treat include tumours, trauma, infection, and degenerative conditions. Less frequently congenital defects and developmental abnormalities require my care. For each patients’ condition the disease process is corrected and the appropriate reconstruction performed – optimising form and function.


Much of Mr Rawlins public practice at Royal Perth Hospital involves plastic surgery trauma (as part of the State Adult Trauma Centre).  Referrals are accepted for all trauma work including facial trauma, hand trauma and lower limb trauma – often requiring complex reconstructions including free-flap surgery.  Mr Rawlins welcomes public and private trauma patients including workers-comp and motor vehicle insured cases.
