I am very pleased with the results of this operation. Peter and the staff were very efficient and caring. The follow up care was great.

Absolutely amazing, the tender care and kindness by all staff members on a procedure that I was fairly anxious about. Dr Norris' bedside manner was just beautiful. His attention to detail and kindness on any questions I had made me feel not only comfortable but he built trust straight away but not treating me like other Doctors as a number. His personal follow up the next morning meant the world to me to ensure that I was ok and if there were any queries, concerns or issues I had. There was no pain what so every. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me feel like a million $. I would recommend Dr Norris for any procedure. Thank you again.
My experience with Peter and the staff at the clinic was awesome. They made you feel welcome and comfortable and answered any questions that i had. I am very happy with the outcome of my surgery and i highly recommend Peter Callan. The aftercare that I received was amazing from all the staff.
Peter Callan was just fantastic from the first interview, my surgery and the end with my follow up interview. The gorgeous girl and his nurses are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The whole journey was so easy and I was so pleased with the final results. I could not thank Peter and his staff enough for the great job on my eyes.
Mr Peter Callan performed a brow lift and blepharoplasty on me. Mr Callan and his staff were amazing. They were very caring, professional and patient. I couldn't be happier with the outcome, and can't recommend them more highly.
I selected Peter Callan for my Bleoharoplasty based on reviews and personal experience with him doing my daughter’s Otoplasty, which was excellent. I chose to have the procedure in the rooms rather than day stay. My Bleoharoplasty was a particularly challenging one which needed two revisions, the last resulting in the complete operation beginning from scratch. No doubt I was somewhat anxious that the desired result could not be achieved but now I’m finally at the end of it I couldn’t be happier. I can’t thank Peter enough for his patience, it was a lengthy journey. Everyone from the girls in reception, nurses and Peter himself are professional, friendly, a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend Peter Callan.
Facelift, upper Blepharoplasty, liposuction I had upper eyelid surgery, facelift and liposuction procedure with Peter Callan earlier 2019 and couldn’t be happier with the results. All my friends are saying that I look amazing and you can’t even tell that I’ve had a procedure. That’s because Peter Callan is meticulous to ensuring you get the results that you want but still look natural. The clinic is private, clean and bright, and the staff are friendly, helpful and professional. I felt totally comfortable from the minute I stepped into the clinic thru the whole process.
Peter Callan came highly recommended from a Melbourne based doctor. Despite the plethora of plastic surgeons available within the Melbourne CBD I made the trips to Geelong to have Peter conduct my procedure ( Eyelid Blepharoplasty) and review the process on a number of occasions. From the moment I stepped into the clinic, I was greeted by courteous and friendly staff. Peter offered a thorough consultation and a willingness to listen to my concerns and, what I felt needed redress. He was flexible in the times he saw me and even took time out of his work at the School of Surgeons ( in Melbourne) to review my surgery ( Not many specialists will do this :- accommodate a patient outside of their clinic) Peter is an engaging specialist with a welcomed sense of humor. I believe he is highly competent and I am very happy with the end result. It was worth the drives to Geelong. Heartfelt thanks to you and your team Peter. I would not hesitate to recommend his work
I had seen Peter for a couple of minor things so I had no hesitation in consulting him regarding having a blepharoplasty. Peter has an excellent reputation in the Geelong region and he didn't disappoint. He explained everything thoroughly, all the time keeping me realistic about the result. I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome. His attention to detailed is second to none. From his wonderful staff to his beautiful rooms, everything is considered. Thankyou Peter, I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone considering plastic surgery.
From the moment I had my first consultation, I felt really comfortable with Richard and his staff. Richard explains the procedure in detail and does not hold back. Richard and his team a very courteous and are always willing to help and provide assistance. He provides a real expectation of what to your post surgery experience is going to be. I could not be happier with Richard’s work. Everyone that I speak with are amazed at the results and so am I. Richard is a perfectionist and will not accept anything else. Richard and his vibrant team are absolutely professional in their approach which made me feel really comfortable. Richard’s aftercare and post surgical visits are exceptional. Dianne works with you to make sure that you are looked after and provides the best appointment options available. I am so glad that I have chosen to undergo this life changing experience with Richard and his team. My self confidence is at an all time high. Thank you Richard and all of the team at Body Recon Geelong.
I am extremely happy with the results I have got from my procedure. Peter Callan is an amazing surgeon with realistic outcomes. He is very professional and explains everything the whole way through. The clinic is private, clean, bright and has a wonderful professional feel and look. All the staff there are very friendly, helpful, make you feel comfortable and professional also. I highly recommend him.
I would like to say that after a considerable amount of thought and fear I decided to go have some surgery to try and improve my looks. I consulted Mr Callan and he reassured me that there was nothing to be afraid of and the results would be worth the minimal amount of pain I would go through. Well I have to say the results are magnificent and I couldn't be happier, I would highly recommend Mr Callan and his amazing staff to anyone wan ting to have blepharoplasty, if your considering having treatment do yourself a favour and visit Mr Callans rooms you won't regret it.
I am 67 years old and over the last few years I had noticed that both my upper eyelids had continued to droop significantly over my eyes , this had been a gradual process and it wasn’t until I realised that my ability to see clearly was compromised and that I had developed a habit of continually wrinkling/lifting my brow up to try and clear my vision which was causing headaches, did I finally decide to do something about it. I consulted my optometrist first to check my vision was not compromised for any other reason and then discussed the issue with my GP who referred me to Dr Ellis Choy. Dr Choy’s surgery was very prompt in arranging an appointment for me at his Coffs Harbour rooms. At my initial consultation with Dr Choy he examined my eyelids and we discussed the options available. Dr Choy clearly explained the process of upper eyelid surgery and welcomed any questions I had regarding the process, he showed me photos of previous surgeries he had conducted and I felt I was able to make an informed decision to go ahead and plan the surgery. Throughout the entire process Dr Choy and his team provided ongoing support and were available whenever I had any queries. On the day of the surgery Dr Choy spoke with me again about the procedure so I knew what to expect during and after surgery and I felt I was in safe hands. Follow up aftercare provided by Dr Choy and his team was excellent. The surgery went smoothly with no dramas and has healed very well. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of the surgery, not only can I see clearly but I have the added bonus of friends and family telling me I look brighter, more refreshed and even younger! A very big thank you to Dr Choy and his team.

Dr Zoumaras removed a tattoo from my hand using a skin graft. The procedure went very well and it is healing nicely. Dr Zoumaras and his team are so professional and friendly, I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
Why did I wait so long? I could not be happier with the decision I finally made to seek help from Peter Callan for a concern I had about my eyes. I was extremely unhappy with the changes in my eyelids that seemed to make me look “heavy” and reduce my vision. I would avoid family photos and wore sunglasses until it was dark! Over the last 20 years Peter has successfully treated me for 2 carpel tunnels and a trigger finger, so it was an easy decision to make. Peter Callan is providing Geelong with a top of the range facility that addresses so many medical procedures. He and his staff make me feel secure, cared for and comfortable and although Peter talks to me as a friend, it is with an understanding, professional manner that instils my confidence in him. I am extremely grateful to Peter and his staff and I will certainly return when I have a concern that I wish to improve, because why wait to be happy?
My eyelids were dropping over my pupil. Very noticeable to me in photos. My left eyelid was becoming more and more lazy. From the time I met Dr Choy at the surgery rooms to my actual surgery day and then follow up visits, I always felt very much at ease. Dr Choy is a very caring man and wants his patients to fully understand what is going to happen to them. I had upper eyelid reduction surgery with ptosis repair for both functional and cosmetic reason especially to correct the gross asymmetry. My eyes were very swollen and bruised the next day after surgery but each day they just kept improving so quickly. I didn't have pain killers from the day after surgery. I know in time to come my eyelids would have impacted on my sight, as they would have eventually dropped right over my pupils. So having the surgery have made my eyes look so much better. I’m so happy with the result which is very natural looking and a lot more symmetrical. I highly recommend Dr Choy for anyone considering eyelid plastic surgery.
I have been a patient of Mr. Peter Callan’s for more than 20 years. I consider Peter to be one of the very best plastic surgeons and Geelong is very fortunate to have him practice here. I have had numerous procedures performed (from minor cosmetic treatments through to breast implants and blepharoplasty). I appreciate Peter’s realistic approach to surgery and its end result. He is a highly experienced, competent and skilled professional and I trust him completely.
I had an excellent experience and outcome with Peter. He is skilled, professional and realistic. His staff and practice and facilities he uses are well co-ordinated and everything is explained clearly and followed up. Thoroughly recommend him for any type of plastic surgery. Allow up to six months for full recovery if getting eyelid surgery , to give time to heal and adjust things as necessary....not that it looked unsightly during that period, just looks a bit better in photos as time goes on. The surgery has improved eyesight slightly and definitely doesn't feel as heavy around eyes. Peter is very accurate with his prediction of outcomes. His team of staff also deserve great feedback, thanks.
I had upper eyelid surgery by Dr Choy with my wife having the same surgery on the same day by the same doctor! I've recovered very well and feel a lot fresher and brighter since. I'm really happy with the result and experience. My friends could notice a positive change to my face but couldn't pinpoint what happened! A very natural looking enhancement by the amazing Dr Choy!
I had my upper eyelid surgery done together with my husband by Dr Choy and could not be happier with the outcome! I'm now looking and feeling more refreshed and also noticed I look more relaxed! Both my husband and I had a wonderful result and experience with care from Dr Choy and his team! Thank you so much!
My background is Chinese and I was born in Australia. I have asymmetrical eyelids where I have a crease on one eye and a monolid on the other. This would look quite obvious in photos, depending on the side you were looking from and I felt quite self-conscious that my face would look different from different angles. Make up only goes so far to mask the imbalance on my eyelids and I felt that on my monolid- side my resting facial expression appeared bored or unimpressed given more ‘heaviness’ on that eye. I had been thinking about getting eyelid surgery since my early 20s and visited a number of surgeons to discuss my options in Sydney and London. What I wanted was to match my monolid eye to my creased eyelid. Most surgeons said that I would have to do both eyelids. I also wanted to do a bit of research on this given I needed to plan for having some down time to recover. I went with Dr Choy as he was very thorough and took the time to explain the surgery and the options I had. Dr Choy provided as many follow up calls as I wanted to answer any random questions I had about the operation. Even though I initially wanted to operate on one eye, I had both done to slightly enhance my existing eyelid- why not hey? Dr Choy helped me to understand the impact by saying I would achieve 1-2mm lift on my existing crease and about 4-6 mm lift on the monolid. I had the less invasive suture only technique. Dr Choy was very meticulous, only moving on from each suture if he was happy with the results that would come. After the operation I was shown how to ice my eyes with gauze after and pretty much had ice gauze and ice packs on my eyes for about 48-72 hours as much possible. Personally this paid off for me as the swelling and bruising went down very quickly. I was able to go out with sunglasses on day 3 and on day 4 was fairly happy to head out as normal. The total swelling probably went away after about 2 weeks. I went back to work at day 10. I’m super happy with the results, there is definitely a much nicer balance to my eyes. They appear more open, friendly and happy even. I’m happier to have my photo taken now and I don’t have to over accentuate my make up to create the look of balance anymore. People tend to notice something is a bit different but it takes a little while. As with these thing I only wish I had done it sooner instead as I was quite hesitant and taking my time to research things but if you find yourself a good surgeon who has lots of photos of their previous surgeries and that who you can feel comfortable with that’s what was important for me.
For many years I had been conscience of the loose skin around my neck, which made me lose my self assurance as I felt it made me look and feel old. I am very active, still work fulltime and run another business where I constantly deal with the public. My decision was not something that I took lightly and after many years of investigation, I finally found Dr Ellis Choy who gave me every confidence that he was the surgeon that I wanted for my procedure. Dr Choy was very attentive, listening to my concerns and explaining the procedure that would be required to lift my neck and lower face. Dr Choy made recommendation that to enhance the overall outcome he suggested that I have the loose skin in my upper eyelids removed, this was totally up to me. I was hesitant at first however I trusted Dr Choy and it was the best decision I made to go ahead with the eyelid surgery in combination with the neck and lower facelift. Dr Choy, his staff and nurses are outstanding and they reassured me of any queries I had during the whole journey. I am over the moon about the outcome and I cannot thank Dr Choy and his team enough for making me feel confident and so good about myself.
I had an upper eyelid surgery, face & neck lift with Dr Choy 9 months ago and could not be happier with the result. My experience with all the care from Dr Choy and his team has been perfect including all the post op reviews. I highly recommend Dr Choy to anyone considering facial rejuvenation surgery.
I have been called retiree at the age of 68 years ‘old’. Sorry there is no such word as ‘old’ in my dictionary. I find it offensive to be labeled because of my age. I am always young at heart. I am keeping up with my exercise and living a healthy life. I have found no good reasons to live as an ‘old’ woman at my age just to follow the norm of the society. I refuse to be a retiree because I feel young and I have a lot more to offer to the society. I am not prepared to sit in the rocking chair wasting the rest of my life away. Unfortunately, the physical signs of ageing is not in correlation of my mental attitude. My eyelids were the first walking away from my young outlook in life. Some friends often commented that I had been staying up late so the bags were very prominent under my eyes. I was struggling to have my upper eyelids held up to get better vision. Those issues started to trouble me physically and mentally. I realized that my appearance does not match my outlook and attitude. In order to put the balance back in my life between feeling and looking young. I resorted to elective eyelids surgery. I was lucky to have witnessed the magical works of Dr Ellis Choy operated the upper and lower eyelids for my friend. I could not find the trace of scars on her face and she was looking younger naturally. With mixed feelings, tossing between going against nature or let nature takes over. I decided to make the best of the rest of my remaining life, so, I made an appointment with Dr Choy. At the consultation with Dr Choy; I felt the sincerity and genuineness in his manner, immediately I felt I could trust him. It gave me full confidence on the day of the surgery that I was neither nervous nor anxious, thinking I could trust him for a good surgery and outcome. Everything met my expectation. I couldn’t be happier. I must mention about the friendly staff, they were all doing their best to create a pleasant and relaxed environment for me. Making the whole journey of surgery a very pleasant and worry free experience. I was always skeptical about cosmetic surgery, thinking vanity is the main motivation for it. I must admit that I am happy to be looking younger than my age. But more importantly, I realized the benefits of the cosmetic surgery go beyond the physical improvement. I found the mental uplifting is far greater than the looking good on the face. It makes me happy thinking I am enjoying a longer youthful life than a lot of other people at my age wasting the rest of their life doing nothing for themselves/the society.
I am 36 years old and of an Asian decent and I was born with asymmetrical upper eyelids. It never really bothered me during school or even University days as it wasn't as noticeable. In the last 2 years, I’ve noticed in photos the eyelid fold on my right eye or the lid crease was becoming less prominent. I actually thought it felt heavier and was droopy. My eye make up would never go on as nice as the left eye, as it would always smudge when i blink. I also used to try make it less obvious in photos by squinting the bigger eye (left) to match the single eyelid fold (right). Before I started to research what this procedure actually involved, I went to a cosmetic surgeon who was referred to me by many Asian girls I know who have had several things done to them including botox, nose bridge and double eyelids. I went in for a consultation just to see what was involved in Asian blepharoplasty. The consultation took approximately 10 minutes if that. The cosmetic surgeon didn't really ask what my concern was and just asked me if I was after the double eyelid look. He didn't explain much about it, but I guess he probably has so many patients who he then gave me 2 pricing quotes, one for suture technique, the other is the open technique and said I can opt to do either. He then went onto explaining he has his procedures posted on youtube and told me to watch how its done on his patients to get the feel of it so I can decide which technique I prefer. I kind of got turned off at the time and told him I’ll think about it. I went home and did a lot more research as I needed to find a doctor who can give me confidence and reassurance that I will be in safe hands and will do an excellent job. Eyes was never something I would think I wanted to have done. After months of reading and comparing several reviews, blogs and forums and finally having the courage to get the procedure done, I decided to call plastic surgeon Dr Ellis Choy for a consultation. I sent them an enquiry on their website and Siobhan called me the next day to book in an appointment for the following week. I met Dr Choy the following week and knew straight away after talking to him I was going to book in my procedure and have it done by him. Dr Choy first of all asked me what He can do to help me, why I want it done and Was I currently happy (at the time) with the left eye, or do I wish to change both eyes to make it the Caucasian look. I told him my right eye felt droopy and heavier than my left and just wanted to fix the right eye (not realising you need to do both eyes regardless to make them both symmetrical - which completely makes sense!) I explained to him I was happy with the height and lid crease of my left eye and just wanted to match it and not have a huge difference so other people can tell I've had something done to my eyes but perhaps make the left eye more defined since he was going to work on the eye anyway! He said he was confident he can make it to how I want it to be. i.e. double eye lid for the right eye so both eyes are symmetrical using the left eye as the benchmark. Dr Choy then took me into another room where he took several photos of my eyes and also measured the distance between the eyelid crease and the fold. Took videos of me opening and closing my eyes. Then took me back into his office to show me what my eyes currently look like on his computer then compared with his patients who have similar asymmetrical eyes to me and their before and after photos after their procedures with him. He then explained to me the two techniques he usually uses and the costs involved. He advised for the result I want he is able to do it the less invasive suture technique without any open incisions. He said he can still achieve the same outcome with a quicker down time as I needed to return to work as soon as I could and he gave me the confirmation that if He was not happy with the result at the time of surgery he can always move onto the open technique. I was very happy with my consult and had booked a date 6 weeks from then to undergo the procedure. Due to me living some distance away from the clinic I did not find it necessary to book in a follow up pre- op consult as I was sure I was going to have Asian Blepharoplasty done by Dr Choy. Nonetheless, he personally called me 2 days prior to touch base with me to see if what we had spoken about 6 weeks ago, was still ok to go ahead. He once again gave me reassurance I was going to get the results I wanted to achieve. He gave me the opportunity to ask any last minute questions. After speaking with him on the phone I was even more excited and happy and couldn’t wait for the procedure to be done. The day came and I was welcomed and greeted by all the lovely team at the clinic. After completing the surgery, Dr Choy took me in the room again to take more photos and videos. Then took me into the room where I would be operated. It took roughly an hour. There was no pain as such. Just discomfort if anything. but its expected if you are doing any sort of surgery awake! During the whole procedure both Dr Choy and his team were very professional and careful and always asked if I was ok. One week later I could already see the difference. My eyes were symmetrical! I can’t thank Dr Choy and his team enough. I’m really happy with the results and have recommended him to many friends and family of mine.

After a considerable time dwelling on if, where & when I was ever going to go ahead with this type of surgery, I decided it was now or never..I researched and approached three Perth based surgeons. Each agreed rhinoplasty & upper eyelid surgery would be beneficial but what made Dr Watts stand out to me was his calm and methodical nature which decreased a lot of my anxiety about my decision to proceed and increased my trust to be assured I was going to get the desired results. By no means was I after an 'extreme makeover' in fact I was after a subtle,natural look so that no one could detect I actually had any 'surgery'. Dr Watts really listened to my concerns during each of the appointments and explained the procedures in detail, it was never rushed. He was honest and realistic about achieving the outcomes I was after, & we agreed we were on the 'same page' which put my mind at ease. The surgery itself was undertaken in a new modern local hospital which I found to be less intimidating, Dr Watts saw me pre & post op & even provided his personal contact no. for aftercare and a gift bag with some post op goodies which added a nice personal touch. The Inital 7 days of recovery at home was manageable as a schedule of post op medication was provided by Dr Watts and he also was able to remove the stutures and nose splint in his office both of which were pain free procedures. I was surprised how relatively pain free the surgery was, no sharp pains or stinging sensations, more just a blocked nose, dry mouth and swelling which was bearable with ice packs, especially for the eyes. His practice manager, Sue was also most accommodating with bookings and replying to emails etc.. The surgery already feels like a lifetime ago as my nose now looks in proportion, my overall look is a 'fresher' appearance and most importantly natural! I'm SO happy and highly recommend Dr Watts as he has a real passion for what he does!

I had a BCC on the side of my nose which had to come off and my GP recommended Jeremy Hunt. I also talked to the GP about eyelid surgery and she again recommended Jeremy. I spoke to a few people who had recently had the surgery, and then to a few professionals in my local beauty industry and they talked about this person or that - but not Jeremy. I did my research and Jeremy ticked all the boxes - but more importantly, when we met he made a strong positive impression. No bullshit - just facts - and with a wry sense of humour. The proof is in the pudding as they say, and 6 weeks post op nobody can tell I have had surgery and all they all say is I look so refreshed and vibrant. Bruising was minimal and post op was completely painless. Jeremy's team are professional and just like him - no nonsense, really friendly. Not sure when my next procedure might be but Jeremy would be my go to person and I have recommended him to my local beauty salon.
For 20 years I have been struggling to improve the appearance of my neck. I have tried numerous creams and lotions to improve the elasticity of my skin and nothing seemed to help. Constantly hiding my neck with scarfs and high neck jumpers I became very self-conscious and decided to research other alternatives. I quickly found there were a number of treatments available and made an appointment for a consultation to find a suitable outcome. I was devastated to learn that as a result of being on blood thinners for most of my life that surgery was not a favourable option. I was referred to Dr Ellis Choy for his professional opinion. We spoke about my blood disorder, the effects surgery would have and possible blood clots were a major concern. Dr Choy was very thorough and after receiving a medical clearance we proceeded to make plans for a combined face & neck lift with upper eyelid surgery to give me the best outcome. After caring for my family and disable brother for years I felt uncomfortable spending money on myself and was hesitant to proceed but my family were very supportive and encouraged me to spoil myself. Dr Choy met with me before surgery to go over the procedures and what to expect when I woke. He was extremely clear and made sure I was relaxed and understood everything. The operation went well, the recovery time was faster than I expected. The stitches were removed 10 days later and I returned to work after 3 weeks. Every staff member at Dr Choy’s clinic were amazing, they made the whole experience personal, warm and caring. This was a huge decision for me but I am so glad I went through with it. The results Dr Choy achieved are natural and I feel refreshed and invigorated. It has been a truly transformational experience in my facial rejuvenation journey with Dr Choy. Thank you So Much!
I have always had asymmetrical eyelids but as a child I wore glasses which hid the asymmetry. However, as I got older and started wearing contacts I was no longer able to hide it. I tried using double eyelid tape to make my eyes appear more symmetrical. However, with continuous use it only accentuated the asymmetry. After a period of deliberation, I decided to consult a surgeon about the possibility of eyelid surgery. I spoke with numerous clinics, however, none instilled me with much confidence. Eventually I found Dr Choy whose patients all seem to sing his praises and no one appeared anything but extremely pleased with their results. From my first contact with Dr Choy’s team to now (two weeks post-op) the entire experience has been excellent. Dr Choy’s team is always helpful and friendly. Despite my many emails, I never had to wait long for a response. Dr Choy himself is very approachable and supportive. During the initial consultation Dr Choy took the time to understand what I wanted to achieve. He was also very thorough in his explanation of the different types of eyelid surgery (including the benefits and negatives, the potential risks, and the realistic expected outcomes). Unlike some of my friends’ surgeons, Dr Choy was very honest, he never placed any pressure on me to undertake surgery, and did not try to upsell me any other procedures. At the end, Dr Choy even provided ample time for me to ask questions. After my consultation I was so impressed I booked my surgery straight away! Being an interstate patient I did not have another meeting with Dr Choy prior to the surgery. However, a week before my surgery Dr Choy contacted me to ensure I understood exactly what will happen on surgery day, make sure I was still happy with everything, and allow me to ask any last minute questions. On surgery day, I arrived late due to flight delays. However, Dr Choy did not rush anything. He did not proceed until I was settled, happy, and comfortable. It has now been two weeks post-op my “Double Eyelid” surgery with suture approach (no incision!) and I am recovering very well. The first 24 hours was probably the most uncomfortable but after that I didn’t feel any pain at all (unless I touched it). By the end of the first week most of the swelling had subsided, a bit of bruising was evident but it was not obvious especially with glasses on. At two weeks post-op both eyes are almost completely recovered. I am now feeling great and absolutely loving my new look. I am amazed every time I look in the mirror! Dr Choy has been absolutely wonderful throughout the entire experience and I would most definitely recommend him to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.
