Mr. Richard Maxwell is a third-generation doctor. He graduated in medicine from Monash University in Melbourne in 1981. He trained in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Alfred Hospital, the Royal Melbourne Hospital and the Victorian Plastic Surgery Unit in Melbourne. He completed his training in 1989, gaining the Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Mr. Maxwell spent the next two years in England doing post-Fellowship training in General Plastic Surgery including Hand Surgery, Burns, Paediatric Plastic Surgery and Reconstructive Surgery following cancer removal and following motor vehicle and industrial trauma, followed by a Fellowship in Cosmetic Surgery in Harley St. London. He concentrated on Cosmetic Breast Surgery, spending time with Madeleine Le Jour and Daniel Marchac in Europe and with G. Patrick Maxwell in Nashville, Tennessee, all major figures in the development of the ‘short horizontal scar’ and ‘vertical scar’ techniques of breast reduction and mastopexy. Mr. Maxwell was one of the first plastic surgeons to use these techniques in Australia. In 1991, Mr. Maxwell returned to Melbourne and established himself in private practice, at the same time working in the public hospital system at the Alfred Hospital, performing reconstructive surgery on motor vehicle and workplace accident victims and cancer reconstructive surgery. He was a member of the Victorian Melanoma Service from its inception in 1994 until he left public hospital work in 2003 to concentrate on his private practice.
