Dr Morris Ritz
"It was my older sister who inspired me to become a doctor. Changing patients’ lives for the better is one of the most rewarding feelings you can experience."
253 Wattletree Road
Being a plastic surgeon is much more than using knowledge and training to create an aesthetically pleasing outcome. It’s about art. It’s about creative problem solving with your mind and hands. It’s about thinking outside the square. That’s why I love it.
Dr Morris Ritz specialises in all aspects of cosmetic plastic surgery, including facial, breast and body contouring. Highly respected among his peers, he is a Council Member of the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and is the National Secretary for the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
What is the secret to happy patients? According to Dr Ritz, it’s about patient education. Too often, patients go into surgery not understanding enough about what lies ahead. They haven’t done nearly enough research about the qualifications and experience of their chosen surgeon.
While online research can be helpful, the most important thing you can do is spend time with your doctor, asking questions and feeling comfortable with their explanations and care toward you.
Dr Ritz is based at Plastic Surgery Melbourne, which he runs with 5 other plastic surgeons. They can access Stonnington Day Surgery, a fully accredited state-of-the-art operating complex, as well as a network of world-class hospitals. This access enables them to offer a wide range of cosmetic plastic surgery as well as non-surgical treatments.
