Rhinoplasty

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.

Facelift

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.

Breast Reduction

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! :)

Breast Reduction

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!

Facelift

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.

Blepharoplasty

Peter came highly recommended by my GP for a required eyelid ptosis. Being apprehensive for a year or so to book an appointment, once there, Peter and his staff had me at ease within the first appointment. All questions were explained thoroughly and honestly. Ensuring expectations were realistic. Peter and his staff were professional every step of my 12 month journey. Including follow ups and alterations. All delivered with a sense of humour. Cannot recommend Peter and his team highly enough.

Breast Augmentation

I had breast Cancer in 2016. I was left with breasts that I could not even relate to as being my own. Dealing with breast cancer was devastating on a physical and emotional level. After 4 yrs of healing. I decided to deal with the elephant in the room head on, and have a Double Mastectomy. I met with numerous plastic surgeons, seeking a surgeon who would treat ME as a person, not just a number, and who would Listen to ME. On my first consultation at Dr. Callans' office I was quite pleased that he listened to exactly what I wanted to do with MY body and MY desired outcome. He advised me quite clearly what was possible and what was not, due to my circumstances, and what would be the best and safest way to proceed. Because at the end of the day this was about my health. I felt understood, cared for, supported and was treated as a respected individual throughout the whole experience. Dr. Peter Callan performed the reconstruction surgery for me, immediately at the back end of my double mastectomy. And my end result, now 3 months post surgery - I am extremely happy with. A heartfelt Thank You to Dr. Peter Callan and his team for their professionalism & compassion. I highly recommend Dr. Peter Callan 100%. And I now feel like a woman once again. THANK YOU

Rhinoplasty

My entire experience with Peter Callan was exceptional! I decided to go ahead with a rhinoplasty to correct my crooked nose, aiming to improve my breathing as well as the aesthetic of my nose. My first consultation with Peter was brilliant, he listened to exactly what I wanted and ensured my expectations were realistic. He thoroughly addressed all of my questions/concerns and explained the entire procedure. My biggest concern was altering my nose too much as I wanted a subtle result, however after each consultation with Peter I left feeling fully confident that I was in the right hands. I’m now two months post-op and couldn’t be happier with my results! Extremely grateful for his work and the kindness of the entire team!

Rhinoplasty

I cannot fault my experience with Peter Callan and his team. Like many, I contemplated undergoing a rhinoplasty for a few years and have never been surer that it was the right decision. After the initial consult I was confident in Peter’s abilities as his expertise were apparent and his 3D reconstruction accurately demonstrated what I wanted. The assisting employees and nurses had great personal skills and I felt well cared for as a patient. The process of the procedure itself was smooth and the result was amazing. It was exactly what I wanted and I have been delighted with the service Peter Callan continues to provide at the post-surgery follow ups.

Rhinoplasty

From start to finish my interactions with Peter Callan were great! I opted to have a rhinoplasty to fix my crooked nose in order to enhance both my breathing and the appearance of my nose. My first meeting with Peter was reassuring; he listened carefully to exactly what I wanted and made sure that my expectations were realistic and achievable. He clearly answered all of my questions and concerns, as well as explaining the whole process. I am thankful to him for his efforts and the support and care of the whole team was greatly appreciated.

Breast Augmentation, Breast Implant Removal

I found Peter and his staff to be extremely professional and very helpful. I have seen Peter twice for breast surgery and both times have been great. I was always informed on what was happening, and given the right information pre and post surgery. Peter always gave many options and I always felt supported with my decision. Great results each time and I am very happy.

Rhinoplasty

Super glad I went through Peter to fix my nasal issues, not only am I happy with my results, but extremely impressed with Peter himself and his lovely staff from my initial consults, to my surgery and now to my post-surgery appointments. Peter has a welcoming easy going personality and is very straight forward about what he can do, doesn't make you feel stupid and very informative. Overall great clinic and would go back again!

Rhinoplasty

After many years of being extremely self conscious of my nose, predominantly my dorsal hump, I decided to go ahead and have rhinoplasty. I did my own research and spoke with a friend who is also a plastic and he could not speak highly enough of Dr Peter Callan and now neither can I! From the first point of contact with Peter and his staff I knew I had made the right decision. Everybody was so friendly, accomodating and professional. The whole process, from booking consultations, the surgery itself and everything afterwards was seamless. I felt looked after, reassured and cared for. Peter has an amazing eye for aesthetics and above all else listens to you and therefore truely understands what you are hoping to achieve with your surgery. I found his manner to be honest and open in managing my expectations and always positive and reassuring. It has been 2 weeks since my surgery and even with a little swelling I am INCREDIBLY happy with my result. Peter really is a master of his craft and his work cannot be faulted. I cannot recommend him more highly. No words will ever express the immense gratitude I feel. Best decision ever!

Breast Augmentation, Breast Implant Removal, Breast Lift - Mastopexy

I found Peter and his team very professional and caring. I was given a realistic view of what the surgery would be. I was never pressured or pushed into procedures. I was extremely happy with my results of the surgeries. Minimal pain , I was only on analgesia for two days, Some discomfort at night however, when I positioned my pillows correctly it was not a major problem, after a week or too this discomfort was very minimal. Within six weeks I was back doing everything including exercise. I can thoroughly recommend Peter and if I decided to have any other cosmetic surgery in the future I would go back to Peter.

Peter Callan and his team were extremely professional and I would highly recommend using his services. I am extremely happy with the result. They explained the whole process to me, helped me compare sizes and explained the potential negative side effects and the likelihood of these. They made the whole process easy and seamless.

Rhinoplasty

I had always wanted to have my nose reduced in size as I always thought it was too long for my face and made my face look hard, especially as I aged. I did some research for Plastic Surgeons and also asked a retired Plastic Surgeon who was a friend and he told me Mr Peter Callan was the best Plastic Surgeon in Australia for noses. So I made an appointment and went and saw Mr Callan. From our first meeting I felt really comfortable with him. He listened to my concerns and what I wanted to achieve and he agreed with what I wanted to achieve and assured me that he could get that result for me. He took 3D photos of my face and edited the photos to show me what result he believed he could achieve for me. I loved the result of the photos and it showed me that he had listened to me and that we were both on the same page. That was very important to me. I needed to know that I could trust him and that he had heard me. I had the surgery in July 2019 and while I still have some swelling in the tip of my nose, I am very very happy with the result of the surgery. Mr Callan has been with me every step of the way through this journey and I feel very comfortable with him. His manner is gentle yet confident and self assured which I like. He is very honest and has given me his opinion whenever I have asked for it. He is a perfectionist and won't settle for a less than perfect result, and the result he agreed he could achieve. His staff are all wonderful also, a reflection of him I believe. Whenever I go into his offices, I am greeted by my name and his staff chat to me like I am a friend. I highly recommend Mr Peter Callan for any Plastic Surgery especially for nose jobs as this is his passion and speciality. I am delighted with my decision to chose Mr Peter Callan as my surgeon and I would do it again if I decide to have something else done.

Facelift

I recently had a facelift performed by Dr Peter Callan. The entire process from initial consultation, to surgery and follow up care, was a positive experience. I felt completely confident in Dr Callan’s skills. He gave me a very realistic appraisal of the result that could be achieved, however, ultimately the result exceeded my expectation. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr Callan and his delightful team!

Facelift

An active outdoor sporting life had left my face and neck leathery, wrinkled and sagging and looking much older than my 69 years. A full face and neck lift accompanied by strong chemical peel and fat transfer has left my skin looking smooth, plump, taut and glowing and at least 10 years younger looking. Even the vertical wrinkles around my eyes (from a previous eyelift) have disappeared. The result is so natural looking that very few people outside my very closest friends have commented - other than to say how "well" I look. Peter Callan's surgical and aesthetic skills are amazing as are his professionalism and enthusiasm. All of his staff are friendly, caring and highly professional and the level of communication and support shown by all throughout the process has been exemplary. The attention to detail included a free makeup tutorial which has given me a whole new look and an increased level of confidence. My only regret is that I didn't have this procedure 10 years ago! I strongly recommend Peter Callan to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.

Rhinoplasty

6 months ago I had rhinoplasty with Dr Callan (septoplasty with an ENT as well at same time) and it’s one of the best decisions I have made. From the first consultation with Dr Callan I knew he was the doctor for the job. He has an excellent eye for it and knew exactly what needed to be done to get a natural, not “done” look, and that’s exactly what I got. I look like an enhanced me, it’s me but just better :) From the beginning to the end the whole process was seamless, there just wasn’t a problem or any issues, and the operation itself was not near as painful as I expected, I was uncomfortable for a little in days after but not in much pain at all, and I only needed painkillers for one day. I would like to commend Dr Callan and all his staff on running such a smooth operation, and Dr Callan on his skill, he is quite the artist and judging by his work on mine and other noses he has done, he is ‘the nose man’. Don’t go anywhere else!

Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift - Mastopexy

For my surgery with peter callan I had augmentation & masopexy. The whole process from initial consult to Surgery and follow up was fantastic. Lots of communication from Peter and his nurses throughout and excellent processes. I am very happy with my experience and result

Breast Augmentation

After losing 50+ kilos I was very unhappy with with my breast as the amount of weight I lost caused my breasts to sag. But then I was referred to Dr Peter Callan to get a breast augmentation and breast lift and there's nothing that can put into words with how happy I am with my results.

Rhinoplasty

After many years of being self-conscious of my nose and contemplating surgery for 10+ years I did extensive research and finally decided to go ahead with Rhinoplasty by Mr Peter Callan. My main concerns were the dipped tip and dorsal hump, I wanted a softer more subtle looking nose that complimented all features of my face but still maintained character and most importantly I wanted to look like "me". I am now 8 weeks post-op and have such a nice natural looking nose, my results look so natural that not even my closest friends and extended family noticed, only commenting on how refreshed and happy I appear and surprised when I told them - which is exactly what I wanted.  All of this is a credit to Peter's expertise, techniques and perfectionism to provide the best most natural outcome. Peter and his incredibly knowledgeable team from Reception to Nurse Staff made me feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire process from the initial consultation, right through to the recovery process and beyond. If you have been contemplating having any nose related surgery, without a doubt look no further than Mr Peter Callan and his team, I recommend them immensely.

Rhinoplasty

Peter Callan quite simply changed my life. Such a professional and caring team who truly are amazing at what they do. I felt reassured throughout the whole journey and found the healing process very straight forward. I am now 9 months down the track following my rhinoplasty and the confidence it has given me is astounding. Thank you will never be enough.

Rhinoplasty

Late in life I decided to have Rhinoplasty. I have been self conscious of my nose all of my adult life. Peter Callan was recommended to me by my GP. He made me feel relaxed, his care and his explanation of the procedure he would preform was clear and understandable. He took photos of me as I was and then showed me what he could do. He did not push me into the operation, he made sure I was happy about all he planned to do. He was caring before and after the operation. My follow up appointments have also been pleasing. More photos of my progress and more explaining of what to expect. He is always positive and cheerful. Each staff member that I have met is considerate and very pleasant. I am happy with my nose 4 weeks after my operation. I have had no pain and very little bruising, the swelling is going down noticeably, I can breathe easier, and am most certainly happier with my appearance already. I would recommend Peter Callan to anyone considering plastic surgery.
