Episode 127 hosts Dr Tom Van Eijk, a globally-renowned cosmetic doctor and Holland’s most famous injector. He left surgical training in 2003 to focus on injectables and by 2005, had begun teaching students. He is especially well known for his ‘ferning’ and lip ‘tenting’ techniques which he has presented all around the world.
In many of our previous episodes we've speculated what a formal pathway in training in cosmetic injectables might look like - and so we found a country who's done just that. In 2019 in Holland, cosmetic injectables became recognised as a medical speciality and a training programme was created under governmental control.
Dr Van Eijk gives his unfiltered opinion on this and tells us what led to these changes. We explore whether it was necessary and assess what Australian injectors could learn from the Dutch experience.
