From a young age, I knew I wasn’t the same as all the other girls. They were severely asymmetrical and their shape was consistent with, what I now know, tuberous breast deformity. This significantly impacted my experiences during my teens and early twenties. I had very low self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence. I never confided in any friends about this until I was about 27 years old, I was too fearful of judgement. I didn’t even tell my mother till I was about 23 years old. At 27 years old I started researching and contacting surgeons, at 28 I finally had my surgery. I had liaised with another plastic surgeon in Cairns for some time and contacted a few other surgeons however, I chose to put my trust in Dr Ellis Choy; a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon in Sydney. I always knew my surgery would not be straight forward and this was something I had been looking forward to my entire life, in hope that one day, I might actually be able to feel “normal”. I met Dr Ellis Choy via our first phone consultation, and immediately I knew I had made the right choice. Dr Choy gave me every opportunity to tell him my story, and express exactly what it is that I wanted, and that I didn’t want. I decided for a bilateral breast augmentation lift approach for correction of my severe breast asymmetry from tuberous breast deformity. I arrived in Sydney 2 days before my surgery and met with Dr Choy the day before my surgery. Dr Choy discussed my surgery with me at length and left no question unanswered, while I was nervous for this life changing event, I was reassured and felt safe in Dr Choy’s hands. The minute I saw my new breasts, though still swollen, I was so pleasantly surprised! I am at week 6 now, and they change every week…they get better every week. Every phone call, text message, email and question I have contacted Dr Choy with has been answered, usually before the end of the day! His post care is brilliant, and Dr Choy is true to his word when he says you become a patient for life. Now I feel more confident and this has already translated and affected every aspect of my life. I can start to say “yes” to invites and “yes” to relationships, and of course “yes” to spoiling myself with beautiful dresses and lingerie I never thought I would be able to wear. My family and friends who have now seen my before and after photos are amazed at my results, I’m amazed at my result and I am keen to see how they look in the next 6-12months. So if you want a genuine surgeon with experience and magic hands, I highly recommend Dr Ellis Choy- his artistry and skills has changed my life.
Hi, my name is Michelle I am 49 years old and have 3 children. After having my children my stomach has never gone back down and have the excess skin. For years I have had to wear clothes that would hide my stomach area. This problem grew worse after having a hysterectomy 12 months ago. People were asking me if I was pregnant, it was so embarrassing. I was becoming depressed and had no self-confidence. So I took the step and after doing some research found Dr Choy. After one visit to Dr Choy I new instantly from his experience of being a plastic surgeon that he knew the reasons behind my decision and made me feel comfortable and confident in my decision. I ended up having a mummy makeover (tummy tuck and breast lift) and I am at week 1 post op and feel and look amazing. Considering I still have swelling I look great and have even bought my first bikini in 20 years and it looks fantastic on! I’m so happy and looking forward to starting my new confident life. Thanks Dr Choy.
I had a breast augmentation by Dr Choy 4 weeks ago and could not be happier with result! It was exactly what I want and more! I’m now more proportional and natural to my body frame. Can’t wait to go bra shopping in time ahead! Highly recommend Dr Choy for anyone considering breast augmentation surgery.
My names Maggie, I’m 24 years old. I suffered from asymmetrical breasts that affected most aspects of my life. I had two different nipple shapes and two different breast sizes (One breast was a C and one was a DD/E) Dr. Ellis Choy and his team made me feel very comfortable throughout my entire experience thus far and so did the staff at Castlecrag Private Hospital (where I stayed one night post op). After in-depth conversation and examination, talking about different surgery techniques and sizing etc., I decided that I should opt to do a breast augmentation, lift and reduction on both breasts for further aesthetic symmetry and a better chance for them to feel more alike. I’ve accepted that I will be left with an anchor scar but the positives outweigh the negatives. I’ve taken a couple months off work since it involves a lot of lifting (I’m a full time carer of an elderly Alzheimer’s patient) and I’m lucky to make family to take care of her until I fully recover. I am 3 week out of surgery now and I have mostly all my feeling in my breasts and nipple back. I still have some localised swelling, soreness and occasionally I can feel some shooting nerve pain but nothing that id find alarming or even complain about. My breasts are still sitting a little high and feeling a little hard but that is all part of the swelling and have already started to go down which is great. The worst part of my recovery would have been my experience a few days into my recovery when I had severe nausea for quite a few days with one of the days vomiting for over 6 hours straight, which obviously put a lot of pressure on my chest. It could be related to the anaesthetic or a reaction my pain medications). I also suffered from severe constipation which I’ve consistently been battling throughout all of my recovery which I can honestly say is a feeling and pain I’ve never felt before in my life. I thought that I had experienced bad constipation in my life before but obviously not. I’ve had to use heavy laxatives and enemas throughout. I’ve also had to stop taking all pain medication except half a Valium which I take to sleep at night since I’m still not used to sleeping on a 30 degree angle on my back. I still believe it was the best decision’ I made for myself and am very happy with the results! I am looking forward to a more comfortable, confident and symmetrical future ☺ I can’t wait to be fitted and go bra shopping which I’ve never been able to do before because of the asymmetry, yippee! Thank you Dr. Choy! ☺
Dr Ellis Choy is Amazing From the age of 17 I have wanted to get a breast augmentation procedure done. I never had the courage to go to the beach/swimming pool or wear nice dresses because I never had the confidence to as I had very small breasts. Then one day I thought this is it I am going to change my look. I decided I wanted to fix it, after doing some research lucky for me I found the best surgeon on the first go. I met with Dr Ellis and straight away knew he was the one! He is amazing, gentle, very thorough and funny. He made me feel comfortable as I don't usually get along with people easily as I am very shy. We went through everything; he explained everything so patiently never felt rushed. He even showed me a lot of pictures and got me to try on the different sizes of implants! On surgery day 350CC is the size we went with, I am so glad that he chose this size for me, they look super natural for my body shape and I couldn't be happier, my breasts look so good. Simply amazing! Also, the pain wasn't even as bad as I expected it to be! I now feel super confident and so happy with how I look. Shopping for clothes is now much more exciting!! This whole journey was a life changing experience. Thank you truly Dr Ellis! You are the best!
I was a 54 year old lady when I originally had my first breast augmentation by a very well known plastic surgeon. I was told that teardrop shaped implants through the armpit incision was the best way to achieve a natural looking result. For 2 weeks after the surgery, I was in excruciating pain that I could barely walk and I was very distressed. As time went by it got worse and worse. The implants started up under my armpits and continued down into the breast tissue but they were not centred in the middle of the breast. Instead they were positioned to the outside leaving sagging breast tissue on the cleavage and underside of the breasts. They were positioned more towards my underarms which caused tension in my arms as the implants were continually pulling. I couldn’t exercise as the implants hardened and caused more pain. I couldn’t wear a bra as the breast shape didn’t fit any bra type and it would constantly pull on my tendons so I only wore sports bras day and night as I couldn’t be without one. I couldn't put my arms next to my body as the implant was there. I had trouble working and I became quite depressed over the whole decision. I couldn't even talk to anyone as I was disappointed with what I did to myself. Over the subsequent 14 months with my worsening problems, my husband and I agreed that we didn’t trust the original doctor, and decided to have a few more opinions. I saw a couple of doctors and discussed the issues and then one of them recommended Dr Ellis Choy. At my consultation, Dr Choy was very patient and took a lot of time with me, he didn't try to brush me off, he explained everything he had to do, in regards to my surgery. This operation was a lot more complicated as I was having the old implants removed, the pockets repaired, a breast lift and an internal bra made for the new implants to fit into, so a lot more than the original surgery. After the operation, I felt surprisingly not much pain, just the feeling of pressure on my chest. I have very little discomfort and boy I am so happy with the result and glad I chose Dr Choy from the beginning to the end! Well its over 2 months and I am feeling really good! I look in the mirror and like what I see, I can wear the clothes that I like again and feel good in what I wear. My husband comments on how much younger I look. He is thrilled that I feel better, and most importantly he can see that I’m a much happier person. I feel my attitude to life has been restored and I am feeling so much better about myself. I am so happy with Dr Choy and his work. Thank you so much for saving my life!
I am really happy with my results after surgery with Dr Ellis Choy he is a fantastic surgeon. After fluctuating in weight during my twenties and early thirties my breasts were left sagging and deflated. I also had a slightly tubular/abnormal shape to my breasts. I was looking to uplift and fill the breast again keeping the look very natural without a breast lift. I found Dr Ellis Choy online through his excellent reviews and by looking at photos of his previous patients with similar breasts to mine with whom he had achieved beautiful natural results. I travelled from Kingscliff in Northern NSW to see Dr Choy for my initial consult. After meeting with other doctors previously, when I met Dr Ellis Choy I knew he would be my surgeon. Other doctors with less experience in cases such as mine turned me away saying I would definitely need a breast lift but Dr Choy has great results with many cases similar to mine and knew exactly what I was after. Dr Choy was caring compassionate and provided me with a comprehensive consultation. He took the time to listen to what I wanted and knew exactly what was needed to get the result. Dr Choy was available every step of the way to reassure me in the lead up to my surgery. His entire team were friendly and great. On surgery day in Sydney I was very nervous but the entire hospital team were very caring and it all went really well. Before I knew it I was all done and meeting with Dr Choy in recovery. When we got the first glimpse of my new breasts I couldn't believe it and loved them already! I cannot thank Dr Choy enough for his attention to detail and for all the great after care he provided me with, he was available 24/7 for every question I needed to ask during recovery. Dr Choy is a true artist of his craft I cannot thank him enough for the great results he achieved in a tricky case such as mine. Thank you Dr Choy!
I had a breast implant lift procedure by Dr Choy for correcting my breast asymmetry with also a mild degree of Tuberous breasts. I'm so happy with the outcome and been really excited with my bra shopping. So happy with my result that I've also recommended my other sisters for the same surgery!
My name is Monica and I had a breast reduction with Dr Ellis Choy and his fabulous team! After a decade of consideration and battling with back pain and a general feeling of not being comfortable in my own skin I took the leap! The lead up to surgery was seamless with the process and possible complication being fully and transparently explained to me. The morning of the surgery I was a mixed bag of emotions! Nervous for the invasive procedure, fearful of the unknown recovery journey, concerned about the emotional implications of changing the long held perceptions of my body and EXCITED! My surgery was conducted at Castlecrag private hospital. I was admitted in the morning and the whole pre surgery routine gave me confidence with the nursing team working tirelessly to calm my nerves! The week after surgery was tiring but also a wonderful time to stop, relax and enjoy time with my family. I was shocked to see how quickly my body bounced back and actually enjoyed seeing the scars and bruising form and then fade. It is a miracle to witness the wonders of modern medicine work in sink with the body's ability to heal! Two weeks on I had my dressings removed and six weeks after that I was free from the medical bra! My highlights may not seem huge to others but the simple things....Buying my first bralette, leaving the house with a confidence I have not had in years, receiving compliments, finding my waist and correcting my posture to name a few! Dr Choy has given me so much, taken a kilo off and added life to my years ahead! I cannot thank him enough! The only thing I would have done differently is to have done this a decade ago!
I went to see Dr. Choy after consulting two other surgeons about breast augmentation. After speaking with Dr. Choy and his staff I decided to go with him. He was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He immediately let me feel at ease. He discussed the risk of surgery and talked about the result I was looking to achieve. I had surgery on the 23 March and immediately after surgery I had alot of pain and discomfort. I was questioning if something was wrong based on the level of discomfort I had but Dr. Choy assured me everything was fine and things would settled down after a couple of weeks. I am now five weeks post operation and I am feeling much better. I am happy with the result. They look very natural and my scars are hardly noticeable. I would definitely recommend Dr. Choy for breast augmentation.
I'm naturally a large framed female who has always been strong and active. With the birth of my children this changed dramatically. I was left with severe abdominal separation, a weak core and a hideous protruding overhang. I was a size 14 with a size 20 belly! Hours of pilates or the strongest of Spanks could not help my situation. For years I tolerated the pregnancy comments and dressed only to cover my belly. I avoided social events and consequently became lethargic and depressed. Seeing this, my husband encouraged me to seek advice from surgeons to finally help me improve my physical appearance. In preparation, I consulted with various surgeons and I decided on Dr Choy without doubt. Dr Choy was honest, comforting and humble. He was very confident in his abilities and the potential my body had. Dr Ellis did not sugar coat any details or make false promises to secure a quick buck. I made the informed choice to proceed and the results far exceeded my expectations. The end result appears natural and in proportion. My recovery has seemed like an age but I feel strong, safe and confident one month onwards. Dr Choy is an exceptional professional and I have no hesitation in recommending his practice.
My name is Ashley and 4 weeks ago I had bilateral breast augmentation. From 16 years of age I could see I wasn’t going to grow past a size A cup bra. I have always wanted to have ‘something’ there so I could feel comfortable with myself, and to be able to wear clothing that I enjoy. I am now 25 years old and have had 3 children. I breastfed for a total of 2 years between my children which left me with very stretched and deflated breast tissue. I began my extensive research as most girls do before making a big decision and came across Dr Ellis Choy. Immediately I was impressed with all the reviews I saw and most importantly with the results, that day I sent through an email to enquire and was very impressed to receive and email back that day. The ladies in the office were extremely helpful and friendly throughout beginning, middle and end, also made sure any questions or concerns I had were answered so I felt comfortable the whole way. Dr Ellis Choy himself was amazing, I met with him for my very first consult and when I left the room I was flooded with emotions of excitement and happiness and I just couldn’t wait to have my surgery already. My surgery Itself was a breeze. For the first 3 days I did a lot of resting and drinking water, but was able to get around the house fine. I was a little bit worried of recovery with 3 children but I had such an easy experience. I found the pain to be very manageable, and the time has flown by so fast I am just about completely back into my usual routine. 4 weeks and 1 day later and I feel AMAZING! I am just blown away with my results and could not be happier, there is not 1 thing I would change about my experience and I highly recommend Dr Ellis Choy. Each time I look in the mirror I am smiling and it’s because I look great! Thank you, Dr Ellis Choy my confidence is back!!!
As a woman who has always had a small frame and longed for a fuller breast look I knew I would get breast implants but was hesitant after hearing experiences over the news of dodgy surgeries and problems with implants so I knew when I was to go ahead with surgery finding a surgeon I’d be comfortable with wouldn’t be easy. In late 2017 I began doing research on plastic surgeons over Sydney, I came across a surgeon who is well known over social media and enquired for a consultation, at the same time I came across Dr Choy whom I also sent a request for a consultation. I spoke briefly to the first doctor but I felt the phone call was very generic and didn’t really give me the chance to ask any questions. I then received a phone call from Dr Choy’s office which I spoke to a receptionist who explained the process of booking a consultation with Dr Choy and to my luck had an appointment opening which suited me. When meeting Dr Choy in person I felt comfortable instantly and really noticed the amount of attention that he gave me. What stood out for me with Dr Choy was the depth he went into assessing me as well as what I wanted and the time and attention he gave me so we could together come up with a plan to achieve my desired look. Dr Choy really made me feel so excited and confident that if I was to go ahead with the procedure I would be under the best care and because of that I had no hesitation to book in my surgery. When the day arrived I was super nervous as I’d never had a major procedure before but when the time came to seeing Dr Choy and his excitement for me to be finally getting the look I’d wanted for so long made me feel at ease at such a nervous time. At my post op appointment I was so excited to share with Dr Choy my experience post surgery which was even more pleasant then I could have ever imagined. The pain was so minimal and despite worries of my beloved tattoo being ruined with a scar I was finally able to see the care Dr Choy had put in to align my scaring and tattoo absolutely beautifully. I’m now 2 weeks post op and my breasts are absolutely amazing already. The look Dr Choy was able to achieve could not have been any closer than what I was after, if anything he achieved over what I ever imagined! I cannot wait to show off my knew look, that I am so incredibly proud of. My overall experience with Dr Choy made what I thought would be a daunting experience a very exciting and enjoyable one instead. I would highly recommend Dr Choy and have already had friends and family amazed on how great my results are.
Feeling great after a complex revisional body contouring procedure by the amazing Dr Choy with 3rd time breast reduction and abdominoplasty secondary to multiple complications from other surgeons. It really change not just how i look but my life! I truly feel amazing and forever grateful for Dr Choy wonderful care. Thank you so much.
I was referred to Dr Ellis Choy after losing 70kg in weight. I had a breast reduction and lower body lift to remove excess skin and I could not be happier with every step of the journey. Everything was explained to me and the medical treatment I received was awesome! I highly recommend Dr Ellis Choy and I'll certainly be back for more procedures!
What a relief! No more headaches, shoulder or neck pain. I had a breast reduction performed by Dr Ellis Choy recently and I’m very happy with the results. I have always been well endowed and have suffered for many years with migraines. Menopause then kicked in and I thought my breasts were never going to stop growing! After breastfeeding children my breasts were not exactly perky. The weight from my breasts made it hard to exercise and took a toll on my confidence. I love the beach but buying swimmers had become a nightmare, anything that fitted my bust did not fit the rest of me. Clothing was not as bad but still disheartening. I felt top heavy and my posture suffered as a result. Initially I was quite nervous, not having had any major surgery before and I thought my age was against me. Dr Choy and his staff put me at ease. Dr Choy's friendly and professional manner along with his qualifications gave me the confidence to go ahead after my initial consultation. No question was too silly or inconsequential. I actually didn't have many questions as most of the information I required was provided. Dr Choy is enthusiastic about his work and explains the procedure in detail. My short stay in hospital was made as comfortable as possible. The staff were lovely and attentive. As I waited all prepped for surgery the Anaesthetist and another member of the surgery team came out for a chat which alleviated the nerves. Dr Choy and the Anaesthetist both checked in with me after I was back in my room. My husband and daughter were there and Dr Choy made the effort to stop and meet them also. The aftercare has been just as attentive. I have been very fortunate and not experienced any setbacks and have recovered well. I attribute this to Dr Choy's skill. If I did have any problems I was made to feel that I could contact someone at any time if necessary. I checked in with my local doctor and we were chatting about my procedure. I mentioned I had very little bruising and also very little drainage after surgery. My doctor said that is the sign of a good surgeon. I now have smaller perkier breasts....yay......I can jump up and down with joy and ease now! Shopping for clothes is fun which it has not been for a while. Thank you Dr Choy and staff, you have made this journey one to remember in the most positive light. I have a renewed confidence and joy in life. I cannot recommend Dr Choy highly enough. Friendly, attentive, compassionate and enthusiastic, coupled with well qualified and experienced.....what's not to be happy about.
I had breast reconstruction by Dr Choy 3 months ago and I could not be happier with the result. After having breast cancer treatment with mastectomy and chemo and radiotherapy 5 years ago I was left with a deformity that really bothered me during this period of time. I initially had a breast implant reconstruction by another doctor but unfortunately it got rejected as a result of infection. I was then referred by my breast surgeon to see Dr Choy for help and he did a DIEP free flap for my salvage breast reconstruction. I now have a new perkier breast and a flat tummy. Really happy that I made the decision to have this life changing surgery by Dr Choy. Thank you.
After having my 2 kids and gone through breastfeeding for both, I had not only lost all fullness, but had the look of deflation. Every time I looked in the mirror, I felt really unhappy. I had always been ok with being small, but not flat and saggy! It was taking a toll on my self-esteem, something padded bras couldn’t fix. My choice to get new breasts came after having taken a trip away with my husband after a year of craziness. During that trip, there was a realization that I needed to look after myself better and rebuilding my confidence was one of them. As soon as we got back my research began. I had no idea where to start. Reviews were helpful and I relied more on other women’s experiences. What I was looking for was a highly qualified doctor and a professional process. I also wanted it done sooner than later because I have a big trip ahead of me that involves sun and beachwear. Keeping in mind the recovery period was a few months, I just wanted to be comfortable for my trip and so far I am right on track. I decided to see Dr. Choy because he seemed to have a long list of happy customers plus his office was located close to my in-laws so the area was familiar. My overall experience with Dr. Choy was very positive. His assistant, Siobhan, was very responsive to all my questions and always got back to me in a timely manner. She provided a reference of a past patient whom I had a nice chat with. My meeting with Dr. Choy lasted an hour and he asked me a lot of questions and we had a lengthy discussion. He did his assessments and presented my options. I got a really good feeling during that visit and decided to move forward pretty quickly. Surgery day was pretty nerve wracking, but the clinic’s team was really nice and professional. My interaction with the nurses there made it a comforting experience. I was in and out after a seamless process- thank goodness. I am very happy with the results- my new breasts are exactly how I envisioned. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Choy and his team.
My decision to have a breast augmentation was not an easy one. I have always wanted larger breasts however was turned off by the idea of having surgery and possibly looking “fake”. Over the past few years I’ve thought about it more and more seriously. Over time and plenty of research I learnt that with the right surgeon you can get a beautiful and natural looking result. This is when I decided to contact Dr Choy after stumbling across him on various online forums. My experience with him was great, during my consultation at no point did I feel rushed. After the first consult I decided to book him in as I felt confident that he would be able to give me an amazing result. I ended up having 295cc teardrop implants with dual pocket approach. My post op experience was incredible, I was so shocked at how great they looked even on day 1 post op compared to all the pictures I’d seen online. My boyfriend came over that night and I felt no pain, I was able to sit and have a family dinner. I’m generally not the best with pain and I was so pleased at how little pain I felt, I was off all pain meds by day 4. Although I’m still in the early stages of recovery I’m absolutely loving my decision so far, I feel so much more confident. The surgery has given me a way more balanced and hourglass figure, everyone has said I look a lot slimmer. I can’t wait to wear a bikini soon!
I have been considering breast augmentation since my late teens, and after extensive research through various online platforms, I was able to find Dr Ellis Choy for the first time and saw his various work and reviews. I was very impressed with how natural and highly aesthetic the results of his breast augmentation procedures looked and was even more impressed to see that his patients have always been so highly satisfied on the level of service given by him and his team. Even before my first consultation with Dr Choy, the whole team has been tremendously helpful and supportive, ensuring to the very best that I got the time slots that were the most convenient for me and answering the different questions I had. When I finally got to see Dr Choy, I got to discuss with him more extensively about the procedure, the different options I had for breast augmentation, the pros and cons, and what was most suitable for me and my active lifestyle. By the end of that consultation I was a bit overwhelmed with the various choices but Dr Choy assured me that I did not have to finalize my decision on anything that day so I was greatly relieved. I would like my new breasts to interfere the least with my movements and active lifestyle so I decided I would go ahead with the insertion of the implants in the subfascial pocket, as opposed to subpectoral or dual plane, which involves cutting the pectoral muscle. I informed Dr Choy on the second consultation about my final decision and he was very supportive of it. He made sure that I chose the right implants for the procedure because I still wanted natural looking breasts, none of the bolt-on look and we decided with a range of 300-375cc moderate plus profile mentor implants. I was basically happy to have the biggest possible implant size put in that will still be able to give me really natural result. I told Dr Choy that I always like to verge on the bigger side but only if it can look natural too. So imagine my amazement at the surgery when Dr Choy decided that the 375cc implants were suitable for me. I was really quite surprised and happy to wake up to them The surgery itself went smoothly, I felt fantastic with minimal pain and grogginess from the anaesthetics and was well taken care of by the kind team at the North Shore Specialist Day hospital. I am really happy with how my breasts look now. I used to feel quite insecure about the size of my breasts in proportion to my body and would feel extra self conscious whenever I was not wearing a padded bra but Dr Choy has completely fixed that for me! I am definitely already much more confident and not insecure at all. I'm forever grateful for Dr Choy's beautiful work.
My eyelids were dropping over my pupil. Very noticeable to me in photos. My left eyelid was becoming more and more lazy. From the time I met Dr Choy at the surgery rooms to my actual surgery day and then follow up visits, I always felt very much at ease. Dr Choy is a very caring man and wants his patients to fully understand what is going to happen to them. I had upper eyelid reduction surgery with ptosis repair for both functional and cosmetic reason especially to correct the gross asymmetry. My eyes were very swollen and bruised the next day after surgery but each day they just kept improving so quickly. I didn't have pain killers from the day after surgery. I know in time to come my eyelids would have impacted on my sight, as they would have eventually dropped right over my pupils. So having the surgery have made my eyes look so much better. I’m so happy with the result which is very natural looking and a lot more symmetrical. I highly recommend Dr Choy for anyone considering eyelid plastic surgery.
After having my first child I knew straight away I wanted to have breast surgery... my breasts had grown so much during pregnancy and after breastfeeding they were completely deflated. I made the decision to wait until I was completely done with having children and 5 years later after my 3rd child my breasts were left very empty and my skin was stretched beyond return. I knew it was time to go ahead with the surgery I had imagined doing 5 years prior. After my extensive search online, I came across Dr Ellis Choy on various online forums where he has many 5 Star review ratings which meant a lot to me as it’s purely based on what other people had experienced first hand. I reviewed all the before and after pictures and was really impressed with the results I was seeing. I called Dr Choy’s office and spoke to Siobhan who was incredibly informative, helpful and patient and spent a good quality amount of time with me on the phone explaining everything in detail and answered all my initial questions. I knew straight away that I wanted Dr Choy to do my breast lift/augmentation and made my appointment to speak to Dr Choy on the spot. All the staff have been very accommodating and from that point on I felt very comfortable and safe in knowing I was being well looked after. Dr Choy was able to give me a phone appointment before my face to face which was extremely informative and thorough and he spent good quality time explaining everything in detail. I was surprised how well he understood exactly what I was after just from seeing my photos before the phone appointment. I then met with Dr Choy for my initial face to face appointment and I knew I had made the right decision. Again, I was made to feel like I was in the best possible place for my breast surgery. In the next few months leading up to my surgery I was quite anxious and was starting to have doubts, however any time I called, Siobhan was very helpful in answering all my questions. I am now over 3 months post surgery and I am incredibly happy with the results so far. I remember after waking from the surgery and looking down I was already thinking “wow!”. I feel like a completely different person. I am already so much more confident within myself and I’m so glad that I went ahead with what I had imagined doing 5 years ago. It’s the best thing I have ever done for myself. I just want to personally thank Dr Choy and his team for making what would usually be a very scary/daunting experience a very easy and stress free one. I am so so happy with everything and especially my new breasts - they are amazing!!!
I am 23 years old from Adelaide and have thought about having a breast augmentation for the last 7 years or so. In October 2017, I was informed via an online consultation that I had tuberous breast deformity and would require a lift in addition to a straight augmentation. It made sense as I had always felt that my breasts looked under developed, but I was disappointed and felt deformed. It also took the cost of the surgery completely out of my budget and I hadn't mentally prepared for the scars that come along with that. I then decided to contact Dr Ellis Choy whom I had seen a lot of his work on various plastic and cosmetic surgery forums with fantastic results from tuberous breast deformity surgery. From the first point of contact with Siobhan, I felt so much more at ease straight away. She was so warm and informative and was able to answer any of the many questions I had. After a subsequent phone consultation with Dr Choy, he ensured me that I would not in fact require the lift and actually recommended against it for various reasons. He took into consideration my work as a hairdresser as well as my active lifestyle when discussing the aesthetic look that I was wanting. I booked the surgery that day for January 2018. As I was an interstate patient I had contact with mainly Siobhan via email and phone and she was there to help me organise my accommodation, flights and the logistics of my stay. I had my pre op visit on the Friday before the surgery where Dr Choy went through every single thing about the game plan, surgery and outcome. I felt so comfortable and he was very open and honest when discussing sizing and realistic expectations. Dr Choy was so humble and had a great aura about him that when I left the appointment I had not a single doubt in my mind about the upcoming surgery on the Monday. The surgery went very smoothly and I had minimal discomfort. As I was due to fly home the following afternoon, Siobhan scheduled an appointment for me to see Dr Choy in the morning on day 1 postop. I never thought - especially on day one - that they could ever look this good. It was incredible to see and compare the before and after photos. I am now 2 weeks post op and I honestly couldn’t be happier- not only do I finally have natural looking breasts, but I was able to do so without having a lift. This surgery has not only changed the way I look, but more importantly has changed the way I feel about myself. The whole team at Zilver Lining and at the private hospital were absolutely amazing and my only regret would be not doing this sooner. I would highly recommend Dr Choy and his incredible team.
I am 38 years old, a mother of two girls. After having two children, I was very disappointed with my body. I tried liposuction, but it did not ultimately solve my problem of loose, saggy skin around tummy. So I decided to search for the option of tummy tuck. I found Dr Choy has excellent reviews and rating. Dr Choy and his team are very professional and caring. Dr Choy is very patient answering all my questions. Because I also have back pain and one breast becomes bigger than the other after the liposuction. I decided to have breast reduction/lift combined with tummy tuck. On surgery day, the process was well organized and relaxed. I stayed four nights at the hospital. I felt very well cared for and supported. I would highly recommend Dr Choy to anyone. I am happy with the way how I look in the mirror now. New body new life!
I had multiple breast implant surgery before and unfortunately one of them is ruptured recently. Despite having my breast implant surgery done by 3 different plastic surgeons, I chose Dr Choy this time round after extensive online research and decided to go for a revision breast implant lift with him due to his great reputation for complex breast implant revision procedures. I had 625cc extra high profile round implants and originally wanted to upsize to around 800g! Dr Choy spent a lot of time talking me down the size and we finally agreed on 600g High Profile round implants. I'm so glad that I went with Dr Choy's recommendation. I’m only 1 week post op and already very happy with the result so far in comparison to all my previous surgery experience from other surgeons. Dr Choy and his team has been amazing throughout the whole process and I highly recommend Dr Choy for anyone considering breast implant revision surgery.
After having three Kids, they literally sucked the life out of my breasts. Pre children I was a full B cup, after three pregnancies and breastfeeding my boobs seemed to shrink. I have always wanted bigger boobs but have always been too afraid to do anything about it. After having numerous conversations about it with friends, I finally decided to look into having a breast augmentation. After reading so many reviews from different doctors, I decided to give Dr Choy a call and spoke to the lovely Janie who referred me to Siobhan who was extremely helpful and so lovely. At consultation, Dr Choy was extremely professional and made me feel so comfortable. He covered every detail I needed to know and answered all my questions. From the get go I knew Dr Ellis was going to be the doctor to perform my breast augmentation, we discussed sizes of implants and I decided that I would leave that up to him, after all he is the professional here. Dr Choy knew the look I was after and he knew exactly what size he needed to use to get the look I was after. On surgery day, I was nervous but excited, Dr Choy prepped me and in I went. After surgery, I was in a little pain and felt a little weird that I finally had descent sized boobs LOL. Going home was ok as I still had pain meds in my system from my surgery. Dr Choy called me the next day to see how I was feeling and just to give me a little advice on how to deal with the pain. The first three days was so painful and I pretty much slept all day and night and relied on the meds to get me through the pain. As the days passed, the pain eased a little. My boobs feel really hard and numb and my nipples have been very sore. Seven days after surgery I started to do some chores around the house, but this was minimal, even making my bed was a bit of a struggle. Sleeping is still uncomfortable as I can still only sleep on my back for the first six weeks, using a neck pillow has been a saviour so have one handy. Make sure you have help at home, as you are going to need it! Dr Choy and his assistants have been amazing through this whole experience and considering the pain and discomfort, I have felt the past three weeks my breasts look amazing. In addition, it has all been worth it. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to the amazing Dr Ellis Choy and the beautiful ladies at Zilver Lining!
I’m a 34 yr old females with 2 beautiful girls (8 & 4). Mid Last year (2016) I was booked in for a tt, after spending a small fortune on consultation fees. Last minute I cancelled and opted for vaser lipo. I did that based on fear, down time and money. Looking back I wish I had visited Dr Choy sooner. After the vaser lipo the results were great for the first 3 months, but after 12 months the skin on my stomach started sagging after the swelling had subsided. So 12 months after spending 12k on lipo, one of my friends had undergone a TT with Dr Choy, I was surprised at the recovery time and pain factor. She was coping a lot better than I was after having lipo. So I made the decision to call his office. The lady’s in the office were great, Dr Choy was very realistic and honest and all expectations were discussed and I felt very comfortable. I’m currently 6 weeks post op and feeling great. I wish I had just went with the TT and not wasted my money on Lipo. And the results are amazing, more than what I had expected. Dr Choy was very professional and accomodating to my expectations, I will endeavour to recommend and refer him to anyone looking for a great surgeon who is willing to listen to what your expectations and concerns are.
After breastfeeding 2 children I decided to get breasts implants in 2006. Even though I really liked the look of them I never felt confident in my own skin whilst having them. So I kept more covered up. As the years went by though I noticed my health started to deteriorate more and more. These issues became more prominent by year 8 and by year 10 of having implants I became more home bound due to my health. In 2016 I came across posts for Breast Implant Illness and decided to do research on this unheard illness. By this time I was living a healthy lifestyle and couldn’t understand why my health was deteriorating more rapidly even though all my test results came back as normal. So it was around this time I decided I wanted to have my implants taken out. Whether or not my implants had anything to do with my health, I wanted to start living more naturally. I found Dr Choy through a facebook group called Breast Implant Illness - (Australia & New Zealand) Awareness and Support. They had a list of surgeons they recommended for explant of the breast implant plus capsule. Dr Choy was the second plastic surgeon I met to discuss removal of my implants and the one I felt most comfortable with. So I booked my surgery for the end of November 2017 to have an explant plus lift at the same time. On the day of surgery I was so excited but nervous at the same time. I noticed when I woke from surgery as I was really out of it. I don’t remember much of what was said to me and had problems with my vision. I know that Dr Choy came and visited me after his last surgery for the day and everything looked fine. Later that night a nurse noticed a haematoma forming in my right breast. Dr Choy came back to the hospital that night to organise another operation to remove it. First thing the next morning I was operated on again. Dr Choy and my local doctor thought this could have happened due to all the vomiting I experience after the first surgery. After spending two nights in hospital I was allowed to go home. The one thing I really loved after having this surgery was having smaller breast again. So I went from a DD down to an A or B cup which I’m so ecstatic about and I don’t look top heavy anymore. Plus having the lift, my breasts look a lot perkier which is an added bonus at my age. I absolutely love my new breasts and now look forward to buying some nice new tops and bras to wear.
My journey began nine years ago after the caesarean birth of my third child. Within days that followed, I tore five hernias in my stomach. This therefore resulted with a prolapse of the abdominal wall. I endured four months of recovery thereafter. This prolapse caused my stomach to disfigure and I was unable to exercise for at least 12 months. In response to this, I became overwhelmingly depressed and overweight. In that time, I gained 45kg. Therefore, from then to where I am today, has been quite a journey. I started my transformation by walking as much as I could. I pushed to overcome each negative thought and doubt with every step I took. As time passed, and small goals I achieved, I gained the courage to join a gym. With a healthy diet, a consistent exercise regime, as well as a stronger mentality, I lost the 45 kg. I still had (and have!) my cheeky days of course with a chocolate or a glass of wine, but I understand that quitting on myself was not an option. My hard work and determination was always key to my success. With a healthier lifestyle, and lengthy conversations with my husband, he could see how hard I had worked. At times I would point out to him the lose skin around my tummy area, and describe how this would make me feel. I phoned my husband at work one day to discuss the idea of meeting with a plastic surgeon. Our conversations continued, and he supported the idea of researching plastic surgeons. So, I did. I finally discovered Dr Ellis Choy. I decided to book an appointment with Dr Choy, as I felt I needed a confident, reconstructive plastic surgeon, to correct the damage created by the caesareans and hernias. It was imperative I found a surgeon who would take care in repairing and re-sculpting my stomach. I found that surgeon in Dr Choy. I am a 40 year old woman, and it encouraged me to see on Dr Choy’s website, diversity in both the age and size of his patients. After a small number of lengthy consultations, my husband and I felt certain that Dr Choy was my ideal surgeon. Following my surgery and recovery, the transformation that my body has undergone is overwhelming. I am now experiencing happiness and joy to finally feel like a woman once again.
Before I had my babies my boobs were great. They were perky and full and I loved them. Then I had my two kids at age 38 and 40. Both were breastfed. After breastfeeding, I started training at the gym, I lost all the baby weight and my boobs deflated and sagged. My body was looking great but my boobs weren’t. I decided to have breast augmentation and began to research my options. I read many great reviews about Dr Ellis Choy. I made an appointment and talked to him about my lifestyle, what my expectations were, implant size, surgery, post-op recovery etc. Dr Choy was extremely easy to talk to, made me feel comfortable about the operation and answered all my questions. I had surgery with Dr Choy mid December 2017. The hospital staff were great and made me feel very relaxed. Dr Choy spoke to me pre-surgery and reassured me that everything will be fine. I am so happy with my new boobs. They are fabulous. My post-op recovery has been excellent. For the first few weeks, I was sore when getting out of bed in the morning (I think it’s called ‘morning boob’), but once I was up and moving about I was fine. I just took it easy and did everything at a slower pace. I am now 7 weeks post-op and going great. The scars under my boobs have healed well and they have settled and look very natural. I am 167cm, 61kg and had 350 high profile silicone implants. I wanted a very natural look that suited my body. I couldn’t be happier with the result. Thank you Dr Choy, you’re an awesome surgeon.
