Hey everyone, Looking for recommendations on surgeons for abdominoplasty and gynecomastia post large weight loss. I've already been to see one surgeon who was personable, intelligent, upfront and honest which I appreciated and would happily go with them but I'd like to hear other people's opinions. I won't name names as it will be interesting to see if they are mentioned by anyone as a recommended surgeon! Thanks!
Dr Jake Lim and his team come highly recommended. I went in for my initial appointment just before Christmas 2014. I wanted a man breast reduction and a tummy tuck. Dr Lim explained that a tummy tuck isn't going to achieve what I wanted it to achieve and suggested a body lift instead. Dr Lim also suggested I get each procedure done separately, as both procedures means I am under anaesthetic dangerously to long. I decided to go for the Male Breast removal first, then the body lift later in the year. I was booked in for the 28th January. I attended an appointment 2 weeks prior to my surgery date. Dr Jake and his team explained the steps I would need to take prior to my surgery, which was very well written down and easy to understand. Dr Lim's team also took care of all of the health care/Medicare aspects of things. I was told to fill out an online admission form for the hospital I was getting surgery at, which saved a lot of time on the day. Surgery was at Westmead private hospital. After going through the hospital's 'check in' procedure, I was taken to theatre which is were Dr Lim and his team were there. They are all very helpful and compassionate. I had very bad anxiety and it was such a relief to see everyone, and they eased my anxiety in a huge way, The anaesthetic was very kind, gentle and helpful also. I remember waking up to Dr Lim saying how everything went well and I will be happy with the results, and he will see me in my room later on. Dr Lim checked on me every day in my room, and made sure I only went home when I was comfortable to do so. I am very, very happy with the surgery. The cut is very neat and tidy. The follow up's have been great. They explain how to care for the wounds at every follow up. Dr Jake's Nurse (Catharine) is also very nice and helpful! She gives great advice on scar care and showed me how to look after my new chest for maximum results!! I highly recommend Dr Jake Lim and his lovely team for anyone thinking of getting this procedure done. As this surgery is only 1 month old, my scars have not healed properly yet. I have attached photos 1 month post op, but will attach more in a few month. http://www.cosmeticplasticsurgerysydney.com.au/
