I recently underwent a breast lift (mastoplexy) and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). I am very pleased with the way Dr Drielsma looked after me throughout the course of the surgery experience- from initial consultations to post surgery care. He is very informative, honest and patient, only recommending procedures that he is confident will bring your most desired outcome. I was also impressed by his daily visits to the hospital post-op just to make sure that everything was alright. His work (i.e. stitches) is very neat, and I could not be more satisfied with the results.
I just wanted to thank Dr Robert Drielsma for the amazing job he did of my breast reduction surgery. The results are unbelievable, I feel and look like a new woman. I am so much more comfortable in everyday life and when fully recovered looking forward to getting into many more activities and am even thinking about taking up running again. I can’t wait to have a massage and be able to lay comfortably on my stomach. I also can’t wait to be able to buy pretty bras that don’t cost a fortune and aren’t like corsets. My clothes fit and feel so much better and my back and shoulder pain has gone. I actually live in Canberra but chose to travel to Sydney for my surgery because I wanted the best job and I have been overwhelmed with your skill. Thank you also to your admin team Deana and Nicole they were always helpful, knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble.
Hi All, I had virtually a Mummy Makeover which consisted of a Full Abdominplasty with some liposuction/Breast lift with reduction and implants as well as an Endoscopic Upper browlift and lower lid. This is the second time I have seen Dr Robert Dreilsmia, the first was about 6 years ago for breast implants. Since then I have given birth to a beautiful boy and breast feed:) When it came to deciding to have my Mummy Makeover there was NO hesitation in seeking Dr Dreilsmia's expert is yet again. Admittedly I was very apprehensive regarding the full procedure as I was having multiple procedures done which as a whole was fairly major. Dr Dreilsmia outlined all aspects of the procedures clearly and was very open and informative with any questions I had. Dr Dreilsmia has a lovely professional bedside manner so I felt comfortable considering the nature of such surgery....:) His staff are absolutely delightful and helpful wherever possible which made the process smooth in all areas. His reception staff were prompt with any call back enquireries as well booking procedures for follow appts etc I have to say that the procedure went extremely well and at 5 weeks post op I am thrilled with the results so far and can't wait till the final results are obvious!! I had help with my toddler for 3 weeks.... This included help to do household laundry, cooking, any type of lifting and bathing / playing with my toddler. The initial week was the most challenging when it comes to pain/ discomfort and relinquishing control, however every day from approx day 4/5 got better and better in baby steps. Important to take pain relief as per dr's instructions and drink loads of water despite hassle to get up and down to toilet. Best to keep hydrated and bowels moving. I wear my compression garments around the clock for Abdominplasty and breast lift , taking off only when showering. My breasts are perkier and well full than I have ever had and am over the moon about this. Sure the compression garments can be a little annoying at times however I believe the have helped considerably with swelling / fluid distribution... I have had days I feel more swelling than others usually at end of day or when I've been moving around a bit more , but never anything too crazy:) my eye swelling from upper browlift and lower lid went down pretty quickly and brushing was gone in a week or so. I did try ice them as much as possible in initial 4 days post op. All my incisions are healing well and have been seeing the dr for follow ups which has been exciting and informative/ reassuring. Even though I'm so much more mobile then initially I remind myself it's ONLY been 5 weeks!! I listen to my body and I believe this keeps me in good sted.... Some days I rest up more and others no so much. All in all I would do it all over again for the results I have obtained. My confidence in my body is unlike it as " ever" been...... And I'm still in early recovery!!! Flat tummy, natural looking perky Breasts and the overlap of upper eyelid and bags refreshed , who would be happy?!?! I would highly recommend if you are considering any of the above procedures to make an appointment to gather advise/expertise and a quote from Dr Robert Dreilsmia . Goodluck :):)
I had a bilateral mastectomy, predominantly on one side, for the removal of a lump in my breast. I am a 22yr old (name is not John Anderson), thin fit build so it was quite obvious. I saw Dr Drielsma on the 27th, he too the lump out that arvo, and I left the next morning. I had restricted movement but zero pain post surgery. It improved very quickly, and 3 - 4 weeks later it looked fine. It's now 10 weeks and I'm playing footy and have been going to the gym for 3 weeks with no pain at all. Highly recommend Dr Drielsma. Explains it well and did a fantastic job. If your wondering, just do it and you'll be very relieved you did.
Dr Drielsma performed tip of nose rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, liposuction under my neck and I had 7 moles removed from my body. It hasn't even been 6 months yet but finally the swelling has all gone down and I am able to see what the end result looks like. I am very happy with the work that Dr Drielsma completed on me. I had a bit of a hard time with the removal of all the stitches as there were so many. One was left in my nose as the dry blood was preventing it to be seen and a stitch was left behind one of my ears which I had a friend take out for me later that night. One of the stitches on the back of my arm that was taken out from a mole removal should have been left in for longer as the skin broke apart and the scar is now a circular shape. I have not had any other work completed on me so cannot compare surgeons, however the customer service aspect could have been improved. The girls in the office were outstanding in their customer service! Very friendly!
From the moment I met Dr Robert Drielsma I was impressed with his professionalism, kindness and caring manner. My initial consultation with Dr Drielsma was for an hour where he advised me that simply replacing my ruptured implants (done 17 years earlier by another surgeon) was not going to give me the result I desired which was for perky young looking breasts. Dr Drielsma recommended that along with the necessary re-augmentation, I should consider having a breast lift (Mastopexy) as this would give me my best outcome. He then explained thoroughly the procedure and answered all of my questions. I had previously been to see another well known plastic surgeon also based in the Eastern Suburbs who rushed me through a 15 minute consultation and advised all that was required was to replace the implants and "that should do the job". I am so thankful that I got a second opinion and instead chose the highly skilled and down to earth Dr Drielsma for my surgery. I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome and my gorgeous new breasts - they look sexy, perky and amazing! (I am 47 and have had 3 children). If thinking about plastic surgery and you want exceptional results look no further than Dr Robert Drielsma. I highly recommend and thank him and his wonderful, supportive staff.
A friend of mine recommended Dr Drielsma as he performed her rhinoplasty when she was 51 years old. At age 54 I finally felt it was time to do something about my nose, which all my life I have been unhappy with. Dr also recommended I have fat transfer to my face to further enhance my appearance along with the nose surgery. ( this would also reduce costs rather than performing this at a later date) It is now 12 months post op and I am very pleased I went ahead with the procedure even though it took all these years for me to find the courage. It has given me a much needed confidence boost, and the results are very natural. Only those very close to me can notice the difference, most people I meet say I am looking well. I would recommend Dr Drielsma to anyone looking into having cosmetic surgery
