Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr Alastair Taylor has established four individual clinics that together provide one of the most comprehensive and professional plastic surgical units in the country.
CAPS encompasses a leading cosmetic and plastic surgery clinic led by Dr Alastair Taylor, a full range of skin care treatments (My Genesis), 360uv Skin Cancer Clinic, and Canberra’s premier medical and surgical facility (Sole’vita).
Each of our clinics are designed to provide a unique service to our patients while also complimenting each other enabling a complete service to our patients all under one roof.
We are located at 7 Phipps Close Deakin ACT. Phone us on (02) 6282 1177.
Dr Taylor qualified as Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon in 1997 obtaining a FRACS, ASPS and ASAPS membership. In January 1998 he began his private practice in Canberra and opened The CAPS Clinic in 2000. Over the years as demand grew, it became obvious the industry was changing. “Plastic surgery” became known as “cosmetic surgery” which was followed by the boom of non-surgical skin care treatments, such as laser hair removal and injectables.
Dr Taylor recognised the need to provide professional and safe rejuvenation treatments led to the introduction and development of the My Genesis program. My Genesis is a comprehensive, safe and very effective program for non-invasive skin rejuvenation.
Skin cancer treatment has always formed the foundation of Dr Taylor’s practice and in 2009 he opened the 360UV Skin Cancer Clinic, the only unit in Canberra offering both the monitoring and surgical management of skin cancers. Working with GPs who are qualified in skin cancer diagnosis, our patients are seen quickly and if required their surgery is performed efficiently avoiding the lengthy delayed process which is so often the case in this field.
The final step was to create a 5 star hospital experience for all our patients. Sole’vita Surgery boasts two state-of-the-art theatres, day and overnight care for surgical patients and a team of professionals who love what they do.
