His background includes teaching at both Monash University (Melbourne) and as an Associate Professor at Stanford University (Palo Alto). He has had the benefit of working with some of Australia’s leading Cosmetic Plastic Surgeons as well as leading Cosmetic Physicians both in Australia and California.
Dr Gilmour is an habitual innovator with a proven track record in international markets with respect to both medical technology and clinical practice protocols.

He also has considerable experience in materials science therefore understanding the benefits of the evolving technology toolbox available to clinicians in restorative Cosmetic medicine and Surgery.
Dr Gilmour has considerable experience in the development of innovative clinical procedures and the implementation of them in everyday clinical practice. He is currently applying that experience to the development of new minimally invasive procedures for restorative cosmetic medicine and is one of the founders of The Australian Society for Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Surgery.
Dr Gilmour is driven by the challenge of providing patient-specific solutions based on considered analysis and proven science, as well as the required visual perceptive ability. A treatment plan will always include options and information required for you to make an informed decision, keeping in mind budgetary and downtime constraints. His passion is in devising subtle “refreshment plans” for mature patients of both sexes utilizing all the best and latest technology for those who want to make their face match their attitude while keeping a natural and refreshed look. Dr Gilmour also loves to seamlessly disguise that inevitable transition from older-younger women to younger-middle aged women.
