Peter Callen came highly recommended to me by a friend and I decided to see him with my ageing concerns (50yo), predominantly for loss of volume on my face and the marionette lines that run vertically from the corners of my mouth to my chin. Filler was recommended as the best and most effective treatment and was injected mainly around the mouth area and also used to augment my cheekbones to address the loss of volume. Overall, filler was used to treat my lower face and worked like a charm as it raised everything below my cheek by a fraction, gave me back some volume and softened the appearance of the marionette lines. Overall I have a fresher look and most importantly still look like myself. My mouth area was a bit tight for a week or so but by the time I went back for my 2 week follow up appointment I was back to normal. Extremely happy with the results, level of care and professionalism. Will happily go back again in 12 months time.
Anyone that is pondering over whether to have breast reduction surgery. Stop pondering and go for it, life is too short to not be your best happy self. With the help from Peter and his team I was able to feel comfortable in my own skin and not hesitate to do all the things I want to. I have never felt better than how I am now. It is more than a physical weight off. I was able to run the Half Marathon eight weeks after my surgery which has been a goal of mine and I was able to still complete it with Peter Callans help. I am feeling at my fittest and overall best after having the producer done, it was all pain free and super easy. You will not regret having it done at Peter Callans, his staff are always a phone call away and are the friendliest ever. Such a warm welcome from everyone! All my questions were answered and I was always comfortable and cared for the whole time. The biggest regret is not trying and never knowing how much of an improvement you could of had. I would highly recommend Peter Callan to everyone.
Facelift. I found the experience less daunting when dealing with Dr. Callan in Geelong. He was extremely professional and his whole team was welcoming making me feel safe at all times. I couldn't have asked for a better job done, it looks amazing! Their knowledge and experience ensured all my questions and queries were met. I felt supported pre during and post-operation. Dr. Callan has a great eye for detail and is very professional. Overall a positive experience and I'm glad I went through with it. - Regards, P.
I was very apprehensive about surgery but Peter was great to work with, he has great attention to detail and provided reassurance that the result would be as natural as possible. It certainly has been an improvement and I now wish that I had taken action years ago. The before and after care provided by Peter's whole team has also been fantastic.
Peter Callan and his team were highly professional, helpful and very supportive during my surgery and during my post surgery follow up appointments. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Peter Callan was very professional and ensured that the outcome of the surgery was exactly how I wanted. His instructions were very clear and following the procedure continued to check up on me.
Very happy with Peter Callan's work and support from him and the team. I’ve always thought about having a breast reduction but didn’t until post-menopausal weight gain had them at an “F”. My GP gave me a few names of Surgeons, which I googled till I decided to use Peter Callan. I was apprehensive, worried about scarring and the pain I would be in post-surgery. Peter and the team were very supportive and made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. I am very happy with Peter’s work; my new breasts look better then I thought they would and natural looking.
Where do I start with Dr Callan and his team?! From the very beginning of my journey, Peter Callan was always at the top of my list and was who I wanted to perform my life-changing surgery. From our initial consultation, I knew his professionalism and attention to detail was second to none. He is realistic and gives you a no-bulldust approach which I appreciated immensely. All members of his team took the time, effort and care to give me the best pre-op, surgery and aftercare all patients should have when it comes to a decision like plastic surgery. No phone call, message or quick query I had was ever met with anything other than a bubbly response. I will never be able to thank Christine, Brooke and the rest of the team enough for this. It takes a special person or team to give someone the experience they did and I was so lucky to experience it with them. In regards to the surgery experience itself, it was amazing. The work Dr Callan performed on my breasts still brings tears to my eyes...even writing this now. Who knew great boobs could make you cry! I have never been happier and it has truly changed my life. I wouldn’t have had the experience and results I have now without Dr Callan. Even just four months post-op, I am ecstatic with the results which will only get better with time. I highly recommend Peter Callan and encourage anyone looking at a breast reduction to make contact with him and the team. You will not be disappointed.
What a professional talented team. Starting with Jess at reception through to Peter, Christine and the lovely nurses who made my breast reduction journey so easy, I would recommend any lady struggling with heavy breasts to start with a chat with the team and be guided with their knowledge. You will be very happy.
For year's I have been suffering from saggy eyelids my vision was impaired, felt like I was wearing blinkers I always looked tired. To the rescue, Dr Peter Callan with skilful hands did a blepharoplasty and a brow lift on 29/07/21. The results were fantastic, I and so, please my eyes are smiling they are brighter, clearer and wide open. This is the best investment I have done I highly recommend Peter Callan to anyone who is having the same problem. Peter and his lovely team, Christine, Brooke, Joyce and Jessica they welcomed and made me feel comfortable. Thank you all. Christine G
I was extremely happy with Peter Callan and his staff. Very professional from the initial appointment and very helpful and supportive post surgery.
12 weeks on from my breast augmentation I couldn't be happier. i'm so glad I went ahead with the procedure and chose Peter Callan as my surgeon. The 2 consultations before surgery were very informative and gave me tremendous confidence in the procedure. Peter put my mind at rest with his considered and detailed responses to my questions. I am very grateful for the care and encouragement I received from his team, nursing and admin, throughout the process and thank them for their support and professionalism. I am absolutely thrilled with the final result, thanks to Peter and his team.
After a lot of research, I came across Mr Callan and it’s the best decision I have made. From the moment I stepped in to my first consultation, I knew it was in the best hands. I am just blown away with the results! Absolutely amazing transformation. The whole team at Peter Callan are just amazing and always make me feel so welcomed and special.
I ummed and arr-ed on breast reduction for years. I hated going bra shopping, and often couldn't find anything that fit right. I could never wear cute little tops that my friends did. My reason was more emotional than physical. Yes, my back and shoulders hurt, and exercise was out of the question too, I don't jump, and I don't run, don't ask me to. But the emotional challenges affected me more. My breasts became a part of my personality, I was often sexualised without intent. I always wore high necklines to hide cleavage. I always had nicknames based around my breast size. Boys loved it, and that was fine when I was 18, but by 23 I was over it, and started looking into a reduction. My doctor was the one who referred me to Peter Callan. I had my initial consultation 2 years before I finally went through with the procedure. I wish I hadn't waited that 2 years. But major surgery and the cost involved had me nervous.The procedure was quick, I went into theatre around 12.30, and was home in my own bed by 7pm. Recovery was simple, sleeping was a struggle though. I was sent home with Endone but didn't end up using it. Keeping up the Panadol and Nurofen, and even then, I stopped taking them after 3 days.Both breasts swelled, I’ve always been good at swelling. I did have some internal bleeding in my right breast. Christine was wonderful. I called her when I realised, she asked to see photos. She consulted with Peter and got back to me asap. They decided to see me, just to make sure. It became very apparent when the left one started going down about 2 months later, but I was assured again that when a bleed occurs it can affect the timeline, but nothing to worry about. Overall everyone is lovely, very helpful, more than happy to take calls, and put your mind at ease. Peter is fantastic, so knowledgeable, makes you feel like you’re in good hands.
After years of enduring issues with my nose 2020 highlighted the importance of making my health a priority, as a result I finally booked a consultation with Peter Callan and am so grateful that I did. I followed and researched the incredibly talented Peter Callan and knew that he was the only surgeon that I would trust to give me honest advice, guidance on my individual circumstance and perform the required surgery. Peter and his A-mazing Team were very generous and kind with their time answering all my questions, setting realistic expectations and clearly explaining my options in a way that I understood. The support and quality of care I received and continue to receive from Peter and his dedicated Team both pre and post op has always been highly professional and personable. Their compassion, prompt response to unexpected setbacks and attention to my situation has been truly amazing and something I have not experienced previously. Their knowledge, expert advise and deep understanding of the importance of patient care is of the highest standard; their attention to detail and the unexpected little things they did along the way have all contributed and combined to make a huge and positive impact on my recovery. I now have a perfectly straight functioning nose that suits my face but being only 7 months post op I know my nose will continue to heal and the swelling will continue to subsided and feel confident knowing that I have Peter and his supportive team along side me on this journey. Thank You Peter, Christine, Joyce, Brooke and Jess you have all individually contributed in helping me throughout my recovery, your friendly smiles, warm welcomes and genuine care instantly eliminated all my worries and anxiety. I can not recommend Peter and his dynamic team highly enough!
I can't praise Peter and the extended staff enough for how pleasant my experience was. I was self conscious about my breasts after 3 children and losing weight last year and I finally was in a position to be able to have a breast augmentation late last year. The first appointment was really educational and everybody was so welcoming I felt so at ease and excited to have a date in place. From the start Peter was honest about sizing and what would suit my size whilst still looking natural. On the day of the surgery everyone was so professional and kind, I felt calm and really well looked after. I was surprised with how easy the recovery was. My post op care was excellent any queries or questions I had the nurses were always there to put my mind at ease. The after care contact by phone when I returned home was exceptional. The staff were always so lovely and friendly. Peter did such a good job at keeping scarring to a minimum. I have a new found confidence that has changed so many aspects of my life. Anyone who is considering this surgery I would recommend 100%
If you're after rhinoplasty, Peter Callan is the best! I underwent rhinoplasty with Peter earlier this year; he fixed my breathing difficulties and altered the appearance of my nose as I requested. I couldn't be happier with the results!
I went for an initial consultation regarding my under eye area. After years of allergies, puffy eyes and previous misplaced filler, I constantly looked tired and had a lot of loose skin under my eyes. Peter and his team were friendly and professional from the first meeting and made me feel comfortable discussing the issues I had. Peter was very knowledgeable and quick to assess me and offer me different treatment options, depending on my budget, and suggested what he thought would get me the best results. I was booked in for lower bleph surgery and all went smoothly. On my follow up appointment, Peter was not 100% happy with the results so he booked me in for additional procedures until we got the final result, including fat transfer and removal of eyelid skin. This was all included in the initial price and there were no extra costs involved. I am very happy with the final result and would recommend peter and his team to anyone considering this type of surgery or procedure.

Highly recommend Mr Callan and his team - seamless procedure, fantastic result. I was well informed and supported before, during and after surgery. Delighted with my outcome and grateful for the care I was provided.
I found Peter and his staff to be experienced, knowledgeable, supportive and attentive during all phases of the surgery, that is, from initial appointment through to follow-up care. I feel that Peter and his staff strive to achieve the best outcomes for patients. The facilities in which Peter operates and the associated medical staff are also very good.
I had my breast reduction surgery 3 months ago, it was the best thing I have ever done. Peter Callan is so professional, I felt comfortable with him from my very first consultation up until my last post op appointment. Peter listened to all of my reasons why I wanted the surgery and explained to me in layman's terms, the surgery process and what to expect afterwards. He put my health first before anything else, which I really appreciated. Three months down the track, I'm no longer suffering from neck or shoulder pain, my posture has improved and I've even started running - something I would never had been able to do pre-surgery. Clothes and bras fit nicely, life is just easier. Peter and all the team are so friendly, welcoming and respectful. It's actually a pleasure to attend appointments!
When I started the process of finding a specialist for my reduction. I was able to get all the information I needed including a detailed account of all costs over the phone before having a in person consultation. The best part was Peter provided so much information and was able to complete the survey within the month which was incredible. Peter and his nursing staff have been wonderful throughout the entire pre and post care and I love the outcome! Would 10/10 recommend to anyone
I needed a revision rhinoplasty done some 40 years ago so went for the lot! It was a big surgery and its a time process for nature to heal all the good work done by Mr. Callan and his team, his nurses, cosmetician, and office staff. All wonderful, attentive, caring and patient people. I couldn't have been in better hands. I was made to feel and treated like a VIP and the personal follow up phone calls to check on me even on weekends were no trouble to the staff, and if I had any concerns or questions about my healing, I was made welcome to be in contact to put myself at ease about my concerns. I was made to feel special in hospital with a gift from the team of a lovely warm organic dressing gown and after with a beautiful personal makeup session to feel glamorous. Thank you Mr. Callan and your Team for giving me a second chance to feel and look good and age gratefully and gracefully! My highest recommendations. Sincere Regards.
I am very pleased to have chosen Dr Peter Callan to undertake my breast reduction surgery. At all times, i received the best attention from Peter and his staff. I am thrilled with the result and would not hesitate to recommend Dr Callan and his team should you choose to have this procedure.
I specifically made this account as well as one on Real self to review my wonderful surgeon Dr Peter Callan. I had my Rhinoplasty with him last year in October and everything went better than I could imagine. I had done a years worth of research before meeting with Dr Callan last year. I had heard through forums he was one of the best. I initially had a skype consult as it was during lockdown and asked 30 questions or more. Dr Callan and nurse Christine patiently answered every single one and didn't rush me. He also suggested a sliding genioplasty after the rhino (from a maxillofacial surgeon) to bring harmony to my face. I wasn't going to do this at the start but I am so happy he suggested it as it has made a huge difference to my face. I had another in-person consult in Geelong where we took photos. Dr Callan explained what was achievable with my nose because of my thick skin and more importantly the things that we shouldn't do to avoid making it look worse. This honesty and years of experience produced the amazing result I have today. When I woke up from the operation neither myself nor the nurse could really even see where the incision was. That's how good this surgeon is. Four months on I still can barely see any signs a cut was even made there. A visible scar was one of the things I feared most so I am over the moon :) Fitting in the two surgeries on the same day ( I had to also to get a septoplasty for my breathing with an ENT) was challenging however the ladies at reception are amazing people and did everything they could to make sure things were handled. Thanks especially to Joyce and nurse Christine for always supporting me throughout this! I cannot recommend Dr Peter Callan enough, he is a wonderful man and a master surgeon. If you are going to get a Rhino go to him. He has a reputation as the best for a reason.
I had a full facelift in November 2020 which was not as straight forward as hoped as there was some bleeding post op. This was attended to promptly and the follow up was very thorough. Indeed, I continued to see Peter both as scheduled and on request as there was some discomfort and additional and prolonged swelling. He could not have been more attentive or available. The same care and consideration was provided by his team of nurses and admin staff. Almost three months later I am extremely happy with the result. I do not look nipped, tucked and stretched but a fresher and more glowing version of myself. As guaranteed by Peter and those who recommended him his work is both gentle and 'real'. I could not recommend him more highly.
Brilliant results! Absolutely cannot fault Dr. Peter Callan & his work. I am beyond happy with my results & I would recommend him to anyone who wants to be put in the safest hands when getting their Breast Reduction done. Also, cannot speak any higher about his beautiful staff! They have always been so accommodating at every appointment & have gone above & beyond with their care. Thank you Dr. Callan & his wonderful team for making my experience a lovely & memorable one! :)
I had been contemplating getting a breast reduction for a few years, but had always been a little bit hesitant. After doing a lot of research, I decided to bite the bullet and book in a consultation with Mr Callan. From the very beginning of the process I was made to feel so at ease - every single member of staff was so lovely and endeavoured to answer any questions I had. The surgery went well and I was very well looked after by both the hospital staff and the staff at Mr Callan's offices. I am now 12 months post op and am extremely happy with the results. It has made a world of difference for me - I feel more confident, I have taken up running and just generally feel so much more comfortable than I did prior to my surgery. I really could not recommend Peter and his team highly enough!
At the age of ‘59’ I found it impossible to apply my foundation and other forms of make up with good results. My eyes were always of a heavy hooded appearance which I had been ashamed of since a young girl. As a child growing up, I was also exposed to the sun and this was also starting to show in a weathered looking face and neck. In 2020 after many years of to-ing and fro-ing, regarding a facelift mostly because I worried about what others may think, I made the decision to have the procedure with a very thoughtful and trustworthy plastic surgeon, who was known to me as having a very good reputation in my district. Having seen Mr Callan years prior after having chemotherapy which had led to my premature ageing concerns, until a point in time were one day, he said to me, that it would be a waste of time to continue using fillers and that I should save my money as it would be best to have a face lift. I never once felt that this could be a slightly misleading suggestion, as I knew what was really starting to concern me and that the truth of the matter was that I needed something done. I also had much trust in Peter’s work due to his reputation in the Geelong district as being, caring, considerate and a perfectionist at his work. I’ve never regretted my decision of having my facelift and still wake in the mornings, looking in the mirror and admiring my newly restored face. I don’t want to point out certain areas that I love more than others, because the procedure covered more than I thought it would from an improvement perspective, which surprised me greatly. My skin has a fresh look, I have eyelids now and don't look sad or tired anymore, I can apply eye shadow subtly and it stays on, there is plumpness under my skin with a soft feel and texture and my neck looks like it did in my mid-thirties. My recovery was monitored well with very little discomfort. I had made the decision not to tell people about my surgery and instead told them that I had had surgery on my heavy eyelids. I wore a mask from start to finish with my clients, with fully revealed bruised looking eyes and was told that I looked absolutely amazing! I thought I did also!!! The continued after care and attention and support from Peter’s staﬀ was faultless and I’m almost envious of such a wonderful friendly work environment, where everyone is happy, fresh and vibrant in their manner, enthusiastic and so personally connected to the clientele that they all see every day. I thank them all dearly for being so helpful and supportive through a time which presented as a diﬃcult decision and originally with thoughts of a weary outcome, and now has left me feeling positive, grateful and totally happy with a wonderfully restored look.
