About Dr Beldholm

Dr. Bernard Beldholm is a FRACS qualified specialist surgeon focusing on surgeries within the following areas:


Breast augmentation


Breast Augmentation and Lift


Breast Lift


Breast Reduction


Tummy tuck and body sculpting


Facial rejuvenation surgery and treatments

I started medical school in 1994 at UNSW University. I completed my university studies in 1999 and did my required Internship and Residency training in 2000 and 2001. In 2002 I entered Surgical training with RACS (Royal Australasian College of Surgeons) that then led on to Advanced surgical training with RACS.

Once I completed my Fellowship with RACS I did a further 2 years of training in cosmetic surgery with ACCS (Australian College of Cosmetic Surgery).

Since completing my Specialist Surgical training I have been in full time practice for more than a decade performing cosmetic surgery.

“RACS Surgeons are highly qualified and up-to-date with the latest developments in their area of skill. They have considerable knowledge and give the best possible care to their patients.

FRACS stands for Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, a qualification awarded only to those doctors who have successfully completed several years of rigorous surgical training.

With a proven commitment to lifelong learning and the highest standards of professionalism, Fellows of the College offer you and your family safe and comprehensive surgical care.”

It is all about how treatments are used that matter. That is why we spend time educating and creating a plan just for you.”
