Dr Peter Laniewski MBBS FRACS
Dr Peter Laniewski was born and raised in Sydney.
Dr Laniewski’s inspiration stems from a long family tradition of medicine. He decided upon a career in plastic surgery during his undergraduate years at the University of NSW and has dedicated his professional life to surgical excellence for his patients.
After graduating from the University of NSW he undertook advanced surgical training, completing fellowships in General Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
After completing his studies in Australia, Dr Laniewski packed his family off to London to complete an international fellowship at The Royal Marsden Hospital in London. The Marsden is recognised as a world leader in breast and head and neck reconstruction. During his time in London, Dr Peter spent his time rebuilding the breasts and lives of women who had received the devastating diagnosis of cancer.
Working in London at the Marsden allowed Dr Laniewski the opportunity to train with Plastic Surgeons from London’s famous Harley Street. Here Dr Peter was able to practice and perfect his skills in Cosmetic Surgery of the face and breast. While living in London he also attended various cosmetic courses in New York, Germany and France. Dr Laniewski continues to travel widely attending cosmetic and reconstruction meetings all around the world.
Dr Laniewski’s main interests are Breast Surgery and cosmetic surgery of the face.
His training and expertise range from simple Breast enlargement surgery to full reconstruction after double mastectomy. Nothing is too difficult for Dr Laniewski to consider, and no problem is too small, each patient receives the same amount of care that he would give his own family.
Facial surgery can involve a simple upper eyelift, which may be performed under local anaesthetic or a complete face lift.
A consultation with Dr Laniewski about facial symmetry and how to achieve harmony and beauty of the face can be quite enlightening.
Dr Laniewski also performs non-surgical cosmetic enhancement on its own or as an adjunct to surgery in order to achieve perfect balance.
Dr Laniewski is a member of ASPS and ASAPS so you can be sure that you are as safe as possible in his hands.
Dr Laniewski’s research interests are clinically based focusing improving the outcome of reconstructive surgery for all patients that he sees. He is particularly concerned in improving access for women to reconstructive surgery following surgery for breast cancer. Part of his work is to research the ways in which the lives of patients that have head and neck reconstructive surgery can be further improved and to share his results with the wider plastic surgery community. He is also keenly interested in refining facial aesthetic surgery, again measuring outcome and improving patient education.
