Wait Time 😩😩

Recommended Posts

July will be here before you know it!!! My first consult is booked for July 22nd and its ALL i can think about!!! Don't know what i will be like when i book in to have the procedure... im thinking around mid/late September. 

Can i ask who is your surgeon? and what size are you looking at having?

I've been researching and looking into having this done for about 6 years now and have always put hubs and the kids first..... but no more! I've decided that i need to be looked after too!

All the best..

Hi there 😊

Can I ask who your chosen surgeon is and where are you going for your surgeries?

I've decided to go with Dr Stradwick on the Gold Coast. I got all similar advice from 2 other surgeons all within a similar price range but my gut feeling was to go with him. I'd prefer someone closer to home, I'm on the Sunshine Coast, but it really just means a couple of days on the Goldie. I wasn't fussed on one PS here & the other couldn't even bother to get back to me when I enquired about a consult. A shame but that's how it goes . So now to wait for July, gives me more time to get to my goal weight 😀😀

That's a shame about the wait time but it should go quickly. Why not put yourself on the cancellation list? You never know you may get a call asking if you can come in earlier. 

I thought about it but easier to organise with my work if I plan the date. I was hoping for May as June is my daughters 21st & she's having a party at home. He did have 2 dates available right before her bday but didn't think that was a great idea so I'll wait till July. Come to terms with it now 😉😉

thanks for the advice though xx

Hi TamaraHill

I am paying $13,500 but after rebate from private health & Medicare out of pocket about $11k. I did have a consult with a PS on the Sunny Coast but didn't feel comfortable & the other PS my GP recommended didn't get back to me for a consult. So happy with Dr S, feel so comfortable with him & his practice manager Lisa. 

I went through Cosmeditours who put me onto Dr S. 

Good luck & happy to answer any questions 😀

Oh & am having surgery on 1/8, mix up when booking but that's ok.

Hello,

How did your operation go? are you happy with the results. Ive narrowed my surgery down to Dr S or Dr richardson.

I needed to wait as it was more $ than i was expecting. So now I need to wait till Aug this year.

Thank you.
