Having had breast cancer twice over 6 years, undergoing 6 operations in that time and with the last breast cancer resulting in a bi-lateral mastectomy, I was reluctant to undergo any further surgery procedures. It was only after my 5 year remission date that my surgeon advised I should consider breast reconstruction. Dr Aggarwal was recommended to me by another plastic surgeon as a surgeon who was very familiar with breast reconstruction. When I had a consultation with Dr Aggarwal, he was very thorough in explaining the procedure and the associated risks. He went through all the potential issues that could arise with the surgery and what the likely outcome would be. He gave me best and worst case scenarios. He was able to answer all the queries I had about the operation and provided me with a written sheet of the potential risks which I took away and could refer to while making a decision. I decided to go with a tummy tuck and breast reconstruction. I had the operation at the SAN in March 2019. It was lengthy surgery, and I was in hospital for 10 days following the surgery. As with any surgery, there is a recovery period, both in hospital and at home. My surgery went very well as did my recovery. I put this down to the care that Dr Aggarwal has for his patients, ensuring they are well looked after in all aspects of their journey. I am truly grateful that Dr Aggarwal was recommended to me as a surgeon. I cannot thank him enough for the surgery he has done for me. I am very happy with the outcome of my breast reconstruction as well as my tummy tuck. I highly recommend Dr Aggarawal to any patient.
Under unfortunate circumstances had the privilege of being referred to a great plastic surgeon who I trusted from the beginning. I was referred by my breast surgeon and could have not been happier with the recommendation. I had mastectomy and breast reconstruction by way of Latissimus Dorsi with expander in March 2019. I have since had the expander removed and had breast augmentation. I am extremely happy with the end result and grateful to have had the expertise of a wonderful professional along with the way,
A brilliant surgeon, couldn’t be happier with the results. Exceeded all my expectations. Could not recommend Dr Aggarwal more highly. He is very easy to talk to and has a very caring team of staff. He is the best of the best. I couldn’t be happier.
Following breast cancer surgery and double mastectomy I had implant reconstruction about 14 years ago in a different State and by two different surgeons. The implants needed to be replaced due to a leakage. It was not easy to find a suitable surgeon to meet my demands, but from the initial discussions in preparation, I knew Dr Shagun Aggarwal was the answer. He has a calm and capable manner. The explanations and responses to my questions and concerns were comprehensive and professional and given with patience and understanding. Following surgery, Dr Aggarwal monitored my progress closely and was very generous with his time. His team - anaesthetist, nurses, and office staff did everything they could to make me feel at ease and nothing was too much trouble to reassure me in this complex and somewhat overwhelming procedure. My outcome post surgery has been excellent. Dr Aggarwal is undoubtedly a skilled surgeon who has shown an admirable regard for his patient's needs and I am grateful for his expertise and professionalism.
Dr Shagun Aggarwal .... what a fantastic surgeon I highly recommend him. He has turned my life around, after breast cancer my left breast removed I felt ugly, deformed and lost my confidence. Went to four other breast surgeons before I found the right one Dr Aggarwal I thank you from the bottom of my heart you have given me back my life . Although it was a long surgery I would do it again . His team are a credit to him and I was in safe hands all the way, he explains things in layman’s terms and felt confident every step of the way. Again , I cannot thank you enough. I now have two perfect breast. Anyone thinking of having any surgery done. Don’t go pass Dr Aggarwal. His the best.
After losing a sufficient amount of weight, my skin was left loose and saggy and was very negatively affecting my self confidence and self esteem. I came to see Dr Aggarwal, and from the very beginning of my journey he was very helpful and informative, keeping me in the loop about all the potential results of the surgery. I felt very well taken care of and informed. I am currently 8 weeks post op and could not be any happier with my results - my sense of self and confidence is the best it has ever been and I have Dr Aggarwal to thank for that!
Dr Aggarwal changed my life. I now feel comfortable wearing what I want and have removed the strain on my back. I had been considering a breast reduction for a few years, but at just 20 years old, I didn't know anyone my age who had gone through with it. I visited Dr Aggarwal following a recommendation from my GP, and after my initial consultation, I knew I was in good hands. He made me feel comfortable discussing the surgery and gave me all the information needed to follow through with it. He was very supportive and caring pre- and post-operation, visiting me regularly in the hospital to check up on me. He has also seen me regularly following the surgery (6 weeks ago) to ensure that I was on track with healing. I could not be happier with the result, and am so thankful to Dr Aggarwal for helping me through this.
I cannot recommend Dr Aggarwal enough. I live in Wollongong and really wish we had surgeons like him. I must say it was worth the travelling and I would do it again. I was not worried on the day of surgery (actually very excited) because I knew I chose the best surgeon. Dr Aggarwal has changed my life and given me confidence back. Thank you Dr Aggarwal
I first saw Dr Aggarwal when I needed urgent surgery to remove a squamous cell carcinoma from the tip my nose. Being in such a prominent place on my face, I was extremely concerned about the outcome of having a 1cm diameter piece removed from my nose, replaced by a piece that needed to develop a blood supply and grow. Dr Aggarwal discussed the options and risks with me in a manner I could understand and gave me as much time as I needed to come to terms with what was involved. He made me feel confident in his ability to perform this operation. He warned me of the initial outcome and how it would look over the weeks as it healed so that I was prepared. His post operative care of me was remarkable. My recovery has been great and I barely notice the scar, and neither do people who see me. I don’t ever feel that I have to wear makeup to hide it. I returned to Dr Aggarwal to have a blepharoplasty of both my upper and lower eye lids. Being the perfectionist he is, he did a fantastic job and his post operative care of me was of the highest standard. I find Dr Aggarwal to be a kind, caring person and a professional and highly skilled surgeon. He and his staff always made me feel welcome, safe and secure; they answered any of my questions or concerns with honesty and have always treated me with respect. Dr Aggarwal would be my first choice again if I need plastic surgery in the future. I have recommended him to my friends and would feel very confident in recommending him to others.
Shagun is a very talented plastic surgeon. He is also very caring and you never feel rushed during initial discussion and followup appointments. I consulted with him to have a right breast reconstruction done after a mastectomy. At age 65 I was concerned about the difficulty of matching my existing breast and whether the operation might prove difficult for me to recover from. He is a magician and now when I wear summer clothes and a swimming costume you would not be able to tell which breast has had the reconstruction. My recovery from the surgery went well and I'm so glad to have had this procedure done so successfully.
I went into see Dr Shagun Agarwal after noticing that 1 of my implants had ruptured. My doctor who did the original procedure had retired and I now had the worry of trying to find someone I could put my trust into and feel comfortable with and be happy with the result. Davina & Bev Dr Aggarwal's assistant & nurse have known me for many years & now how fussy I am. They were both very confident in recommending I come into see Dr Aggarwal. From the moment I met Dr Aggarwal I was comfortable and confident that I had chosen the right man for the job. He is very much a perfectionist. He explained everything to me and took the time to reassure me that he is very passionate about his work and his high expectations of his work. Davina & Bev had also told me how excellent his work is. 3 months down the track and I am so happy with the results, in fact I was happy immediately. He is very caring, friendly and professional. He was & still is an excellent Doctor and I have no hesitations in recommending him, I will be sure to see him again for any other cosmetic procedure / surgeries.
I had implants which had been in situ for 35 years. I had gained weight and my breasts had become very uncomfortable ie should problems back aches etc. I attended Dr Shagun Aggarwal's rooms and from the first contact I knew he was the man to perform my reduction. He was a quiet intelligent man who went through every nuance that I could expect from the prodcedure. I had the surgery and stayed in hospital the required time. Dr Aggarwal saw me regularly. I am over the moon with the result. I fell lighter and more able to enjoy life now although I know that might sound silly but my heavy breasts had caused more than just a physical impediment in my life. It was a huge mental burden lifted for me. I am forever grateful to Dr Aggarwal and would recommend him to any woman who needs assistance with any cosmetic procedure.
I had been considering breast reduction for years and through a friend who had the procedure done a year before, contacted Dr Aggarwal for a consultation. What a lovely and gentle man and he gave me the hope and reassurance that my dream of reduction was very real and I was a prime canditate but to come back and see him when I was ready to proceed, which I did. Now 2 weeks post surgery I cannot believe how well It all went. Dr Aggarwal visited me every day in hospital and made sure that I was in no pain...couldn't actually believe how little pain there was! Even the San Hospital staff respected and admired his work and considered his stitching ability as "one of the best"! Am still trying to get use to my "new image" and how much better I am looking....I even have a waist and can fit into clothing so easily plus lost over a kilo in weight! Now am wondering why I waited so long. Dr Aggarwal is still seeing me on a weekly basis and cannot thank him enough for his wonderful work and can highly recommend him to anyone considering such an operation.
I saw Dr Aggarwal for revision breast surgery, and could not recommend him more highly. He has a very gentle manner, and I felt at ease with him as my surgeon from the start. I was only hoping for an improvement in my previous breast shape, but my results are perfect! I feel very fortunate to have found such a wonderful doctor.
