Recommended surgeons in Canberra

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I've recently decided to get breast augmentation and am now just trying to put together info on good surgeons.

I live in Canberra but would be more than willing to travel to Sydney for the procedure...if it could be done better.

I have two Sydney surgeons in mind (Dr Liew and Dr Tavakoli) but I was wondering if any Canberrans are on here and have anything great to say about a surgeon here.

The only one I've heard about is Dr Tony Tonks so if anyone has gone with him I would love to hear about it.

His website doesn't have any case photos which is a shame.

:D

Hi Emily!

I am having my BA with Dr Alistair Taylor in April. He is very highly regarded, and I've had an initial consult with him plus pre-op appointment with one of his nurses and I'm very impressed. He has a brand new facility in Deakin and is able to do the surgery in the hospital in his building instead of going to John James or Nat Cap as was the case before. It amazing - 5 star!!! His facility is the CAPS clinic. Maybe look him up and have a think about making a consult. A friend of mine had hers done by him a few years ago and she is thrilled :-)

Hi Emily,

I'm also having my BA in April with Dr Alastair Taylor. So far my experience has been very similar to mumof2's & I'm also very happy with him :) Like you, I did consider travelling to Sydney to have a consult with Dr Tavakoli (my sister had her BA with him) but I decided to try appointments with the Canberra PS's first! I also made an appointment with Dr Tonks but unfortunately couldn't get in till mid April for an initiail consult so decided to go with Dr Taylor since I was so happy with him follownig my initial consultation & also because I'd heard a few recommendations for him from others.

I also had a TT last year here in Canberra with another PS (I didn't use Dr Taylor for it, I wish I had!) My TT has turned out okay but I had quite a few issues with the aftercare so I wouldn't recommend the particular PS who did it. If you want to discuss further feel free to private message me.

Cheers

Thank you for your replies mumof2 and LilyM! I have been thinking that going with a surgeon in Canberra is probably the way to go so might organise consultations with both Dr Taylor and Dr Tonks and see who I feel more comfortable with after.

You both must be very excited! I'd love to hear how both of your surgeries go and how you feel with the result after! Good luck :)

Hi girls,

After reading your posts I have booked a consult with Dr Taylor. I was all set to go to Sydney for consults, which was going to be a lot more difficult and expensive, but after reading your recommendations I'm very excited about my consult which happens it two days time!

Disappointed that his website doesn't have any before and after shots but hopefully will get to see them on Wednesday. I'm also keen to ask about liposculture. Does anyone have any experience of this with Dr Taylor? I'm very athletic and work out a lot but I'm a definite pear shape and would like to add a little to the top and take a little from the thighs. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Would love to hear how those of you who were having surgeries got on? Hope everything went well for you!

Hi Emily & bikini envy,

How did you both go with your consults? Have you had them yet? Dr Taylor has heaps of before & after pics which he shows in the consult & his work is very nice. :)

I am about 5 weeks post surgery now & very happy with my results so far. My BA has actually turned out better than I hoped for :) I would happily recommend Dr Taylor & the CAPS clinic to anyone. :) If you have any q's just ask away!

Hi, i am new to this site, if anyone is still reading this post... I have been to every PS in Canberra though for revision rhinoplasty...Tony tonks did revision rhinoplasty on me, the end result was a nose that looked exactly the same as b4, minus several thousand dollars in my pocket. Dr Taylor saw me for 5 mins, his manner was terrible, prob because he new he would get no further money out of me, though i will say this at least he was honest and said he could not perform the surgery. Tony Tonks took my money anyway, some surgeons are there to be and are doctors others are there for the money, they are business men. Make sure your choose the doctor not the businessman!

Hi everyone,

I have booked a consultation for BA with dr Taylor. I would love tohear anything about him And also about other plastic surgeons in Canberra. Lily M, did you have consultations anywhere else before you picked Taylor ??

Hi, I initially had a TT with another Canberra PS in 2010. I was so dissatisfied with my TT that I decided to to find an alternate PS for a BA. I booked consults with Dr Tony Tonks, Dr Vlad Milovic & Dr Alastair Taylor. I managed to get an appointment with Dr Taylor quite quickly & was more than happy with him following my consult so decided to go with him before I'd had a chance to see Dr Tonks or Dr Milovic.

My friend had a horrific outcome with rhinoplasty ("nose-job") surgery in Canberra. It is essential that anyone considering this type of surgery consults a facial specialist in Sydney or Melbourne, not someone in Canberra who does all types of surgeries. Rhinoplasty expertise just does not exist in Canberra and the risks are appalling. Having "FRACS" after your name is no guarantee of a great outcome.
