From my first consultation through to my surgery itself and my post op care I always felt confident with my choice of surgeon. I had done my research before choosing Dr Richardson and considered seeing other surgeons but a friend of mine recommended Dr Richardson and I am so glad she did. I felt like I could really talk with Dr Richardson and that he would be able to for fill my expectations. In my initial consultation Dr Richardson explained the surgery to me and how I had different implant options such as round or teardrop, textured or smooth and he also explained the 3 different incisions to consider. Dr Richardson favoured the inframammory incision and I was happy to take his advice on this as lets face it we all want as little scarring as possible. He showed me some photos of his previous patients and their scar results were fantastic. Also in talking with Dr Richardson we decided that a textured round implant would be the most suitable for me. Dr Richardson gave me the opportunity to try on some trial implants in a sports bra so that I could get an idea of sizing. Dr Richardson guided me on the sizing however in the end the decision was mine. I chose a 400cc implant. I could not be happier with my results and I highly recommend Dr Richardson and his team. His reception staff were always friendly and helpful and his nurse is always there to help and answer any questions that you have. I understand that Dr Richardson is a busy man so it is great that he has a nurse available to answer those last minute questions you might have. In my opinion Dr Richardson is a very talented surgeon with a great eye for achieving fantastic looking breasts and I highly recommend him!

Dr Richardson on my first appointment didn't say alot, he let me do all the talking and to be honest, I wasn't 100% convinced I had the right Dr. I wanted someone to guide me. Although I had researched alot I still wanted someone experienced to direct me through the whole process and I wasn't getting that. Information on the Internet relating to sizes contradicted each other and I was quite confused even having done alot of research. Apparently Dr Richardson would book patients after 1 consult too which I was surprised with. Another Dr I saw prior to him said 2 consults minimum and a minimum wait/think time of 3 weeks between consults before you could book surgery which I thought was really in line with duty of care so I had in mind that Dr Richardsons practice was alittle bit "redneck" as such. LOL that's the only terminology I can think to explain it (probably sounds worse than I mean). I decided to make a second consult in case I had misinterpreted my thoughts on everything. On the second visit things were much better but I think this was because I navigated the consult more myself pulling out photos of what I was after and asking more questions as it seems without asking them it wasn't too easy to get information from him. Dr Richardson gave me implants to try in a sports bra in both the first and second consult. I asked if the bra would not make them look bigger or smaller than reality to which I was told they would be alittle smaller. I mentioned I had I breast smaller than the other and we discussed 2 seperate implant sizes to equil them out also. It was down to 2 sizes after consult 1 420/460 or 460/520 (with the bigger implant on the other side too even out the smaller boob size), on Consult 2 Dr Richardson suggested that if I wasn't concerned going the next size up again I could also select from 520cc and that I would love them. So going with the professionals advice I decided to go 520. Dr Richardson ended up putting the same implant on both sides as he felt the size difference want that obvious and wasn't worth the risk or over or under compensating the size so I agreed with his advice as the professional. Overall the surgery where it took place was faultless, everything seems to be healing well. The anaetheist was fantastic and i can't fault him. I'm afraid of needles and he really helped me through this and because he was so confident i had faith in him. I think Dr Richardson could take more control of his consults all he did had run through the potential risks of implants and gave me a brochure. I think if he was more confident and in control I would have been more at ease. I mean if someone is going to cut you open you want to feel like they are all over it without doubt and for $10, 500 they should be! Carley who is the nurse is lovely and very easy going. I had my 1 week check up with her the other day and she put alot of my concerns at ease. Dr Richardson is lucky to have her onboard. She is the goto person and does a good job.
