Are you a patient of Eddie Cheng, MBBS, FRACS?
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
Bilateral Breast Reconstruction (Stage 1 and 2) Following Mastectomy (DCIS - Early Breast Cancer) Age 48. Brisbane, AU
In my experience, Dr Eddie Cheng provided a highly professional and caring service. His happy and positive manner adds to making his patients feel relaxed and confident. During my first stay in hospital (after Stage 1 of Breast Reconstruction) he visited me 7 out of the 8 days and insisted on me remaining in hospital until all drains were removed (to prevent infections, complications). My second stay in hospital (for Stage 2 - replacement of tissue expanders with silicon implants) saw him visit me each day. He dealt promptly with my queries out of hours which was highly appreciated. After care in his rooms has always been exceptional and he and his staff continue to provide an efficient, personal and friendly service.

I have nothing but rave reviews for Dr Eddie Cheng. Simply put he did an unbelievable fantastic job, he was caring and realistic and he thinks about the patient and not the dollar signs. He actually was more affordable than other surgeons (about $3400 out of pocket if you have health insurance) and I simply put this down to he is more about caring for the patient rather than the big dollar signs and prestige. He does many boob reconstructions jobs for the hospital and cancer patients. I had been to a couple of doctors and spoken to a number of clinics over the phone. I felt most comfortable with Dr Eddie Cheng. He had a full length mirror to show and explain to me what he was talking about. He showed me before and after photos. He was realistic, gentle speaking and I just plain got a good feeling with him. I have now referred 4 friends and they have all gone ahead with their procedures and are beyond happy. One of the girls I referred had actually been walking around with a referral for Dr Cheng for 10 years. Her doctor said he was one of the best, so when I told her who did my operation, she called and booked in the very next day! I did say I wanted to be as small as I could. He explained that if I wanted nice shaped boobs still, he would recommend a C /D - nothing below as I would loose my shape. He explained the top part of the boob area is flat without fat so going down to a B cup would loose the nice shape of the boob. I was not aware of this beforehand.

5 days before - Dr Cheng has been careful so far and he comes highly recommended in Brisbane. He insisted on an ultrasound and two appointments before he agreed to my operation. He took his time during the appointments but so far I haven't had any other contact from his office (besides an automated text) so I would have liked a bit more communication, but I will update this after the operation has been completed. 1 day before - I must mention that my costs include the day surgery and the anaesthetist's fees. Medicare covers the explant and that portion of the time devoted to the explant - the $10k is my (out of pocket) share for the cosmetic maxopexy and all the above charges.
