His depth of experience in breast and body transformations means he focuses exclusively on breast reductions, breast lifts, breast augmentation, tummy tucks and body lifts.
He is one of only a handful of Plastic Surgeons across Australia with this sole breast and body focus.
Dr Moncrieff has performed thousands of surgical procedures over more than two decades in medicine. Over 20,000 of these procedures have been in Newcastle.
Dr Moncrieff is a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) and a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS).
After working between his practices in Sydney and Newcastle during 2008, he decided to focus on the Hunter Region so relocated with his family in 2009. He consults from his state-of-the-art clinic in Charlestown and operates in various private hospitals.
Dr Moncrieff graduated from the University of New South Wales in Medicine with Honours in 1997 and completed 10 years of specialist surgical training in 2007.
Dr Moncrieff has been published in medical literature and regularly presents at medical forums around the country.
Recent examples include Dr Moncrieff's co-authoring of a paper on the functional benefits of tummy tucks which was published in the March 2018 edition of the internationally acclaimed Plastic and Reconstructive Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In 2019 that paper went on to win a best new author award in the Journal.
His work has also been recognised with awards from his colleague and industry experts. Most recently this included the Australasian Surgical Body Makeover of the Year awarded at the 2019 Global MyFaceMyBody Awards in Las Vegas.
He was also a speaker throughout the Breast Masters Symposium held in Sydney in October 2018. It brought together international leaders in breast surgery for what was the largest breast plastic surgeon conference in Australia’s history.
And in 2019 Dr Moncrieff was asked to join the Mentor Global Scientific Advisory Board in the United States to provide input on safety, patient preferences and education in the field of breast surgery.
Concerningly, more and more people are calling themselves ‘cosmetic surgeons’ as they are attracted to the potential growth in demand for cosmetic surgery – always without the rigorous training and examinations Plastic Surgeons have had to complete.
Currently in NSW there is no legislation which stops medical professionals who have not undergone formal surgical training from calling themselves a ‘cosmetic surgeon’.
Your safeguard is to look for a fully qualified Plastic Surgeon as reflected by the letters FRACS (Plast Surg) under a doctor’s name and check that they are affiliated with the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). These titles and memberships are only available to fully qualified Plastic Surgeons who have undergone many years of training and exams in surgery beyond basic medical school training.
Dr Nicholas Moncrieff
Outside his practice, Dr Moncrieff is a proud father of three boys, including twins, and a patient fisherman. What do those interests mean for you? That he can multi-task, stays very calm under pressure and remains focused for hours – nice traits to have in a surgeon!
