About Mr Zachary Moaveni
Zachary Moaveni is an Otago graduate and a consultant Plastic Surgeon based at Middlemore, Kidz First, and Starship Childrens Hospitals in Auckland.
He has previously served as the Clinical Head of Plastic Surgery and Supervisor of Advanced Surgical Training in Plastic Surgery at Waikato Hospital.
Zac prides himself on practicing and teaching at the cutting edge of plastic surgery and building a respectful and sincere rapport with his patients.
Zac graduated in Medicine from Otago University in 1996 with several Distinctions. He subsequently has been the recipient of a number of academic honours including the prestigious Gordon-Taylor Gold Medal awarded to the top ranking training surgeon in Australia and New Zealand.
After completing his surgical training Zac travelled overseas to Asia, North America and Europe to work alongside some of the most highly regarded and talented plastic surgeons in the world in both aesthetic & reconstructive plastic surgery. Highlights of his time abroad include the highly esteemed Cleft and Cranio-maxillofacial fellowship in Taiwan, Synthes travelling scholarship to Los Angeles and Dallas, and the Mentor aesthetic fellowship in the leading facial aesthetic practice in London. Working with world leaders in plastic surgery was a phenomenally rewarding and inspiring experience. Being mentored by such expert surgeons overseas enabled Zac to refine his surgical skills and gain a vast amount of knowledge and experience.
Since returning to New Zealand in 2007, Zac has worked diligently to build a reputation of excellence, approachability, and compassion.
Zac regularly attends national and international conferences both as a participant and lecturer, maintaining close links with colleagues overseas. This ensures he stays current with advances in all areas of plastic surgery. He is also passionately involved with charitable surgical missions overseas performing repair of cleft lip & palate deformities as well as other reconstructive procedures. When not at work he relishes spending time with his wife and four fabulous children.
