Dr Nicholas Moncrieff

MBBS (Hons), BSC (Med), FRACS (Plast Surg)
Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon

Dr Moncrieff is an experienced Specialist Plastic Surgeon who is passionate about making women feel great about themselves.


Dr Moncrieff’s focus – breast and body surgery

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.


His qualifications and background

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.

Professional Memberships:

  • Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS)
  • Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS)
  • Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS)


Dr Moncrieff’s award-winning commitment to learning and teaching

He has been published in medical literature and has regularly presented in medical forums around the country.

Dr Moncrieff was delighted to accept the prestigious Bryan Mendelson award for his breast reduction paper and presentation to the 2014 Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery conference.

In 2018 he co-authored a research paper following his contribution to a national study on the functional benefits of tummy tucks. It was published in the March 2018 edition of the internationally acclaimed Plastic and Reconstructive Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and in August 2019 that paper was recognised in the Journal of American Society of Plastic Surgeon’s annual awards.

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.

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.


The bigger picture

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!


Important note when choosing your surgeon

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.
