Adam Bialostocki
Mr. Bialostocki is a Specialist Plastic Surgeon, with a full Fellowship in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS). He is a graduate of Otago Medical School (1993) & has since worked in Wellington, Lower Hutt, Auckland, Waikato & Middlemore Hospitals in a variety of different surgical specialties. He was trained in the New Zealand Plastic Surgery training program at Middlemore Hospital & Hutt Hospital. After being awarded his Fellowship in Plastic Surgery, he further honed his knowledge with extended visits to some of the most prominent plastic surgeons in Australia and Europe. He now resides in the Bay of Plenty.

His in-depth experience in the field of plastic surgery is an integral part of Mr.Bialostockiís skill as a surgeon today, and a talent for the procedures he performs has gained him a reputation as a highly respected plastic surgeon. Although his practice encompasses all areas of plastic surgery, his main emphasis is breast surgery (including breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction & breast reconstruction), body contouring (including liposuction & abdominoplasty) and facial rejuvenation (facelifts, mid-face lifts, neck lifts, eyelid surgery, browlifts, rhinoplasty). The emerging field of body contouring after massive-weight loss is a fascinating new sub-area, & Mr. Bialostocki keeps up-to-date with the leading techniques. He also performs a large amount of skin cancer surgery, hand surgery, gynaecomastia correction & ACC scar revision surgery. He has developed a special interest in lipomodelling, the use of micro-fat grafts for cosmetic & reconstructive use.

Mr. Bialostocki has an appointment at Tauranga Hospital as the visiting Plastic Surgery Consultant, is a member of the Plastic Surgery department at Waikato Public Hospital in Hamilton and has his own clinic in Tauranga, Bay Plastic Surgery."
