Dr. Craig Layt

Meet Our Plastic, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Serving the Gold Coast of Queensland and Ballina New South Wales

Dr. Craig Layt was born in Queensland in 1965 and is married with three children.

As a Specialist Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Layt is required to have completed a Medical Degree; obtain more than 10 years experience in surgical training; liaise with other Specialists in his field; hold a Fellowship with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS); and be actively involved in continuing his professional development and surgical techniques. This level of training and experience contributed to Dr. Layt’s ability to become a premier plastic and cosmetic surgeon on the Gold Coast of Queensland and Ballina, New South Wales.

Education and Training

Dr. Craig Layt graduated from the University of Queensland Medical School in 1988. He undertook his general surgery training at the Princess Alexandra, Mater, and Greenslopes Hospitals in Brisbane and the General Hospital in Townsville.

Dr. Layt trained in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Royal Brisbane Hospital, the Princess Alexandra and Mater Hospitals. Moving to Melbourne, Dr. Layt then furthered his medical expertise while working along side a number of leading Fellow Plastic Surgeons in Reconstructive and Plastic Surgery at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Royal Children’s Hospital, Austin and Repatriation Medical Centre, and St. Vincent’s Hospital. Now, he utilises his training as a private practice plastic surgeon, bringing his skill to Gold Coast residents in Queensland. Dr. Layt has been in private practice since 2001.

Dr. Layt is highly credentialed in all areas of Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery. He is dedicated to a high standard of patient care and the achievement of excellent results. He insists that each patient fully understand the benefits, risks, and limitations of the procedure they have selected before undergoing surgery, in order to maximise patient satisfaction.

Dr. Layt was President of the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons from 2010 until July 2012. His role during his 2 years as President required him to actively take part in and organize post graduate education for Plastic Surgeons in the specialised field of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
