Dr Soliman was then selected to undertake 5 years of advanced surgical training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery under the auspices of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS). During this time, he was also awarded a Master of Surgery at the University of Sydney. After completing his training, he was granted the prestigious Morgan travelling fellowship by the RACS and completed 12 months of advanced sub-speciality training in highly contested international fellowships in North America. During this time, he was mentored by internationally renowned Surgeons, Dr Brian Peterson and Professor Edward Buchel, pioneers in aesthetic surgery, breast surgery and microsurgical reconstruction.

Dr Soliman has an interest in research and is widely published on a range of topics including operating room efficiency and breast surgery. He is currently a research supervisor with the University of Sydney and is passionate about teaching and mentoring the future generation of Plastic Surgeons.
