Ever since puberty, the insecurities surrounding my breasts in particular were greatly impacting not only the active, social and romantic side of my life but my ability to find clothes that fit. I went from a 10G (weighing only 60kg an 5'5") with inverted nipples to a very, dare I say perfect, 8C. My confidence sky-rocketed! From the very start of my inquiry I sent rigarous emails to Dr. Rahdon and his lovely receptionist Ms. Bartram and I knew from the very first email that their quality of care was exceptional! Most doctors give you a hefty fee and a bunch of risks, ultimately leaving you in the dark. From beginning to end of my journey I felt comfortable and well-informed the entire way. My scarring was minimal, there was absolutely minimal pain and the days straight after were a breeze! Any questions or queries I had were handled as if I were a VIP!
I had my surgery last year with Richard, He was very professional and made me feel comfortable from the moment I walked in. I had concerns about looking to fake but looking to small, we discussed my options together and what implant would be best to get the best results. The day of surgery was great he came out and made sure I was comfortable and ready. After surgery, he made sure I was doing ok and talked about how to be comfortable while recovering. Follow up was amazing and really in love with my new boobs. I couldn't be happier with my decision to see Richard.
Richard and Di were extremely helpful and professional when I was deciding whether to have a breast augmentation. Richard explained everything thoroughly and I felt extremely informed prior to my procedure. After deciding on a size at the consult that I no longer felt comfortable with, Richard was happy to use smaller implants on the day of my procedure. I couldn't be happier with the results! I have gone from a small A to a D and am extremely thrilled with how they look! I am now nearly 8 weeks post op and they are looking better each day, it has done wonders to my confidence! I strongly recommend Richard if you are looking into getting a breast augmentation, you won't be disappointed!
After my consultation with Dr Rahdon, I instantly felt extremely confident and happy knowing he knew exactly the end result I was hoping for. I would highly recommend choosing Richard as a surgeon. My end results are incredible and I couldn’t be happier.
Highly recommend. Mr Rahdon & his team @ Body Recon were sensational from my first appointment & ongoing. Mr Rahdon ensured I was comfortable & I was extremely confident going into surgery & with his advice, I knew my results would be life changing. He did not disappoint. As an ex gymnast & breast feeding I was lucky to fill an A cup, Mr Rahdon guided me with my choice in size & I’m so in love with my results. Easy recovery, I was working 3 days after my surgery. My Post care has been a dream, with laser for my tiny scars, compression bras, a nurse on call, all inclusive. Thankyou Mr Rahdon ❣️❣️❣️
It was during the first 5 mins of speaking to Richard at my consultation, that I knew he was my surgeon. He was professional, knowledgeable and he made me feel confident about this major step in my life. I already had several great reviews from close friends after their surgery with Richard, but I was still so impressed with my outcome. I wasn't an easy body to work with and he totally fulfilled my expectations and beyond. After only 8 weeks the scars are amazing and so neat, and my healing process has been a dream. I can't stop talking about my journey and anyone considering this procedure with Richard should not hesitate to consult with him. There are far too many horror stories out there and this choice needs careful consideration. It's been life changing for me and every woman deserve to feel confident and comfortable in their own skin.
Richard performed a Breast Reduction/ Lift and nipple revision surgery for inverted nipples on myself in November 2020. From the first initial consultation with Richard i knew he was the surgeon for me (as well as several friends recommending Richard). On the day of the surgery, Richard answered all of my nervous questions and completely put me at ease. The follow up appointments and phone calls, with questions/concerns from myself, made me feel completely at ease and i was not made to feel like i was bothering him with silly concerns. My surgery has been absolutely life changing and i could not speak more highly of Richard and his down to earth, honest and professional approach to my surgery. Thank you again to you Richard, Di and all the staff at SJOG - the apple juice after recovery was honestly the best i have had EVER ( i was starving) .. hmm what next! ....
Richard and his team were fantastic from start to finish. My surgeries went better than anyone could have expected, the scars are very minimal; for the amount of surgery I had done all at once, and the healing time was exceptionally quick for me. Di was extremely on-the-ball and friendly, made me feel super comfortable from day one. 11/10 would recommend Richard and Body Recon to anyone, especially those like me who have lost a significant amount of weight after weight loss surgery and have the excess skin. Im so happy with how my body is at the moment and cant wait to continue/finish my journey to the real me.
Breast augmentation was something I had saved up for and researched for 3 years. After reading many online reviews, and meeting Dr.Rahdon I knew he was my first choice. Friendly, easy to get along with, understanding of what I wanted and the specifications needed for me as an individual, I wasn’t just a number. My surgery went perfectly and the whole team that looked after me was so professional and caring. Richard offers free laser treatments for breast augmentation scars / or any stretch marks that appear during dropping and fluffing- which is something I haven’t seen offered anywhere else. The after care carried out by Dr.Rahdon and his team is second to none and I have felt comfortable and supported at all times. I can honestly say, hands down that Dr.Rahdon hives his clients amazing results and will take the best care of you during your plastic surgery journey.
Richard and his team were wonderful to deal with. I knew I was in good hands with Richard, he ensures you are completely informed. He listened to my concerns and talked through any worries I had. He was never too busy to call or follow up. After my surgery he was attentive and there for me the entire time. I can not fault him and highly recommend him!!
I met Dr Richard for the first time in November and after 3 other consultations with other surgeons I knew instantly that he was going to be my surgeon. He performed an extended Tummy tuck, muscle repair (a 12-14 cm gap after a twin pregnancy) and a Mons lift. He and his team ( Di especially) have been incredibly professional, caring and thorough. I am extremely impressed with my results and the whole process from start to finish. If you are thinking about Dr Richard Rahdon, go for it. Very talented surgeon.
This surgery was life changing for me. After 2 kids I wanted something to make me feel better. Richard was very understanding of what I wanted and he gave me a potential size range that we’d use and I put total trust in him on the day to choose what would yield the best results and resemble what I wanted - he was spot on! I was comfortable through the whole process, the whole team was extremely helpful and answered any question I had and the price was very reasonable! Thanks.
As skeptical frontliner, it took me long time to decide for my busted implants removal until i meet a collegue whom Mr Richard Rahdon had performed breast procedure which casted away my fears and indecisions. YES!! , he is the BEST!!! along with gorgeous Dianne (keeping me informed and reminder notices), Dr Julian Smith, the lovely anesthetist (so professionally reassuring pre and post op), the nurses in St John of God Geelong (all beautiful, superb, and best care ever!). Preoperatively, so much informatios provided detailing what would happen and expectations post operative. Richard's reassuring words, professional expertise and touch, you can't help but trust him, love him or both. The followup visits coming from Melbourne to Geelong is so worth it. I love my new breast now so much, the fullness, softness of the implants and how beautiful looks. Overall, my 100% satisfaction, beautiful smile in emergency department is infectious others are considering the same with peace of mind. Ultimately, 100% referral to Mr Richard Rahdon and his team. Well done guys!!! Thank you so much.
Richard is an absolute perfectionist. From initial consult to the follow up appointments he was informative, diligent and made me feel comfortable. Richard took the time to explain the procedure, realistic expectations and what the potential risks involved where. I particularly appreciate the depth of information he went into with me. He explanations of the latest technologies and techniques assured me I was in the best possible hands and the results absolutely speak for themselves. I've had consults with other surgeons but I couldn't go past Richard. I highly, highly recommend. Also a big shout out to the lovely Dianne who is always up for a friendly chat and ensures I'm well looked after. Huge huge thank you team, I am so incredibly happy with my results
Everything about my experience with Dr Rahdon was flawless! From my initial consultation (which was so thorough), to surgery day to follow up appointments, everything has been top-notch. I felt welcomed, cared for, and completely at ease. Dr Rahdon has gone above and beyond to be sure that all my questions were answered and needs met. He is extremely knowledgable and a perfectionist. Most importantly, my results both look and feel amazing! I truly recommend Dr Rahdon and will be returning for future surgery!
I simply cannot recommend Richard and his entire team at Body Recon more highly. Richard is pragmatic, extremely professional and a perfectionist of his craft. From my first consultation (when I bombarded him and Di with questions) I felt at ease with what was genuinely possible (and what wasn’t) as well as potential risks and what I could expect throughout the process. The results of my tummy tuck have totally blown my mind, the surgery has been a total game changer for me personally and corrected a hernia and cosmetically what no amount of exercise could do. I’m excited to return for a breast lift in February this year to finalise my procedures. At every stage of the consultation process, through to the actual surgery I have been surrounded by a team of healthcare professionals truely engaged in getting the best possible results for me, including keeping me amused and distracted from my anxiety on the day. Richards support (and shout out to Adele) and advice has been ongoing to ensure my scars are healing beautifully and that I could get back to exercise as soon as I was safe to do so. The team at At John of God also deserve a shout out for the love and care given post surgery. It feels strange to say I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole process, it’s not easy procedure to undertake, but that is why the people you choose to go through this with are so critical. Do your research if you want to go ahead with this type of surgery, but if you decide it’s for you then you cannot go past without a consulting with Richard and his team.
Richard was very attentive and professional and understood what i was trying to achieve (which was that no-one would obviously notice that i'd had work done, i'd just look 'fresher'). I was very happy with the entire procedure - from initial consult to after care - and i'm extremely happy with the result. I would certainly recommend Richard.
I had seen several surgeons before meeting Dr. Richard Rahdon, instantly upon meeting him I knew he would be the surgeon I would have preform my breast augmentation and mastopexy. Richard is down to earth, honest, professional and genuinely interested in your surgery journey. The care and support I received before and after has been amazing, I will be forever grateful for the incredible job he did. I highly recommend meeting him so you can have the same experience I did, highly highly recommend.
RICHARD RHADON! What an absolute wizard! When I met with Richard for the first time I was immediately in my comfort zone and knew he was the surgeon for me, there was an immediate trust! Richard had a very friendly, professional and humorous personality which put all my worries at ease. Richards approach at my consult was very Matter of fact, not once did I feel he was trying to sell me something I didn’t need. I knew I’d be in safe hands! I am writing this review 3 weeks post opp and it’s safe to say Richard is my new favourite person in the world! My results already have exceeded what i ever could have imagined! Entering the theatre room I was so nervous and scared, when Richard came in to see me and measure up prior to surgery, he was able to calm my nerves with a laugh and he was sure to visit me in recovery at the hospital each day, re-assuring to all my worries and overthinking! The care at SGOG hospital was 100% without fault! Richards nurse was very helpful and always available to answer my concerns in the weeks following! I am so grateful for my positive experience and I’m beyond thrilled with my results already! I never thought I’d feel so comfy in my own skin again! Highly recommend :)
From the moment I walked into Richards office I was beyond impressed and felt at ease... Di at the reception was welcoming and Richard was at all times professional and friendly with honest advice. I had considered this surgery for ten years and to say I am happy that I went through with it is an understatement. Amazing results that I am extremely proud of. The professional and experienced service continues with my follow up appointments still to this day. Highly recommended. Photos were taken 1 day after surgery.
WOW is all I can say after several operation on my nose for medical reasons to be told not much more could be done. I was left shattered and deflated After seeing another surgeon who referrer me on to Richard - what an amazing surgeon he is nothing was to hard and he worked with me to get the results I was after I can’t thank Richard and his team enough they both go over and above with before and after care and on the day of surgery. His gentle, kind and caring nature makes you feels so comfortable and at ease knowing I was in good hands I will be forever great full for The results I have had from Richard - would not go to another surgeon for anything thanks for all that you have done
Dr Richard Rahdon was AMAZING! After losing a significant amount of weight due to gastric sleeving, I felt miserable about how my body looked and I had a significant amount of excess skin. Dr Rahdon was so considerate of how self-conscious I was feeling and made sure I knew what changes would happen to my body. On the day of surgery, he made me feel relaxed and spoke to me about the significant amount of work he was doing. He really helped to alleviate my anxiety. The results of my surgery are amazing. The scarring, although long, is minimal-looking and cannot be seen when wearing a bikini, which I have never been able to do until now. I feel and look amazing and people have commented on how my personality has just buoyed, it is because I feel great. I have already spoken to Dr Rahdon about further work to remove excess skin on my arms. I cannot wait.
Fantastic. Best thing I ever done. Was made to feel at home. Very little pain. Was G cup now D cup. I thought my tattoo would be mucked up but it wasn't. Highly recommend Richard and his team.
My son underwent otoplasty with Dr Rahdon. He is super happy with the results the ears look very natural. We definitely recommend Dr Rahdon to anyone considering this procedure.
I had a breast augmentation done by Richard in June, and it was one if the best decisions I've made, not only for myself, but also choosing Richard to do the procedure. The consultation was professional and informative. Id never had surgery before and was a blubbering mess on the day, richard was patient and caring about my anxieties and reassuring. After the surgery his staff would check in on me by phone to make sure everything was going smoothly. I highly recommend Richard and body recon for this procedure, I felt looked after every step of the way, and he did a fantastic job, my boobs look amazing!
I could not be happier with the result of my Tummy Tuck. Richard did an amazing job and throughout the process was always caring, helpful and friendly. I feel lucky to have found such an incredible surgeon - Richard was the first and only surgeon I met with when considering this procedure and after the first consultation I quickly decided I definitely wanted to go ahead. The results are beyond what I imagined and the care after the surgery has been top rate. Highly recommend.
I had the most amazing experience with Richard from my very first consultation where he took the time to understand me and my concerns and was able to outline exactly what was required to achieve the results I was looking for. Richard was open and honest with me about everything and my results are amazing. Richard really is an absolute god at what he does and my surgery has been life changing for me.
I had a breast reduction and abdominoplasty with Richard. I ham very happy with my results have gone from an 16F to a 16D and have a flat pre baby stomach and I enjoy going shopping for clothes now something I haven’t liked doing for 42 years! I did have some healing complications and I was given the absolute best care from Richard and his staff and they were always available every step of the way which was so reassuring in such a life altering decision. Best thing I have ever done and wish I had made the decision to do it earlier
I had a Breast Reduction and Lift with Richard Rahdon and have been extremely happy throughout the entire process and especially the end result. The whole team at Body Recon were amazing and never made me feel like all my questions were and inconvenience . I would highly recommend Richard for any breast surgery and have been telling anyone who is considering a breast reduction to see Richard as he made me feel very comfortable and relaxed on the day of surgery. The follow up laser treatments on any scarring is also a fantastic bonus. I can not speak highly enough of Richard and his team and my only regret is that I didn't see him sooner.
