5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
In my initial consultation, Ross clearly explained all the options available to me, showing examples of his work on the computer and explaining the possible outcomes, including mishaps - he de-mystified the process. For me, implants were the best option Ross took a lot of time and consideration in how best to perform the reconstruction, as my case was perhaps more complicated than others, due to a large scar on the top of my breast from the lumpectomy. After several months of chemotherapy, the big day arrived on June9th,2015. Naturally I was nervous, going in for hours of major surgery, but as Ross drew his pre-surgical markings, he was able to put me at ease ( and even laughing) with his bright, uplifting personality and I went in to the theatre with absolute confidence, that he would do his best for me. So much of breast cancer therapy feels like an assault on a woman's femininity and sexuality, so on awakening from the operation, the feeling of relief and gratitude was quite overwhelming. To look down and see a pair of breasts, still there, so alike my own! How very different an experience this would have been had I not had the option of a reconstruction, as was the case for my mother, twenty years earlier.. The recovery period was so much easier than I had imagined, thanks to Ross and his team , the fantastic nurses at Calvary Hospital and the community nurses that come to your home. I experienced little pain and the grief that a women feels due to losing her breasts was greatly diminished because - my skin, nipples and shape were saved and skillfully reconstructed. In the following weeks as the scars healed, Ross told me I could call him at any time if I had concerns and he and his terrific team, would see me immediately , always fitting me in to his extremely busy schedule as plastic surgeon at The Canberra Hospital, Calvary Hospital and his private clinic. On Dr Farhadieh's website for his private clinic, Panthea, he makes a promise to see the patient through every step of the journey. I can certainly vouch for this. He gives very personalised care. As a sole parent on a low wage I could not afford to have a breast reconstruction on a private basis but now, nearly a year after my reconstruction, I look back on the whole experience and can say that even if money was no issue, I would choose Ross Farhadieh. I still have to pinch myself when I see my natural looking breasts and think how very fortunate we are in Australia , to have highly qualified, skilled doctors, the Ross Farhadieh's of the world, who offer their time and expertise to train young surgeons in the public system and give back women in my position, such an important part of our femininity, free of charge. In what could have been a very dark period of my life, Ross Farhadieh was a star.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift
Fantastic experience Dr Farhadieh (Ross) is a super skilled surgeon and a very caring human being. I had a facelift, necklift and upper and lower blepharoplasty. I am a 61 year old female and my request was to look fresher and less tired. I am thrilled with the results. I am apparently prone to excess bleeding so Ross had his work cut out with me...... he handled it brilliantly. My recovery...

Having major surgery is not an easy decision but Ross inspired confidence in the procedure and the results.
Mr Farhadieh is absolutely the consummate professional. A fantastic surgeon and his patient care is second to none. I felt like I was his only patient and any question was answered considerately and promptly, especially post surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
After having a lumpectomy some years ago, I decided that I wanted to have a preventive double mastectomy and reconstruction. After thoroughly researching plastic surgeons in Canberra, I had come to the conclusion that I would have to go to Sydney to find a plastic surgeon who was head and shoulders above the rest. A couple of years had passed when my GP mentioned the name of a new plastic...

I was impressed immediately with Dr Farhardieh's manner. I am quite a natural person and to be sitting in a surgeons office was quite a surreal experience for me. He was calm and polite. He informed me very honestly about the procedure in detail without dressing it up for me which I appreciated. He even told me to go and think carefully about everything before committing to the procedure. I was adamant that I did not want my breasts to be "too big" or bigger than the original size. He understood that and explained that based on my needs it would be a " subtle enhancement" and that is exactly what he did. It is absolutely exactly what I asked for. The attention that I received after my operation was above and beyond what I expected. Dr Farhardieh checked in on me when I was out of the theatre and settled into my room and again early the next morning making sure I was happy and comfortable. My post op experience was very comfortable and all of my needs and questions were met perfectly. I have read so many reviews about the experiences of others throughout this procedure. Some just about turned me off it all together. I can only hope that anybody embarking on this procedure will feel as cared for and satisfied as I am. My recovery time was so minimal and scarring is not even present although it has been 9 months, the incision is long gone. I highly recommend Dr Farhardieh as he has the experience and precision to make your procedure a wonderful experience like mine.

He is my Knight in Shining Armour a truly humble human being, a kind man who actually cared about me who understood my needs without giving me false and unrealistic expectations. We were both on the same page as to what I wanted and he delivered. The best thing was he had every opportunity to sell me on other procedures as I was very keen, he looked at me and said “love you don’t need that” and if you really want that we can look at that in years to come WOW his honesty and caring nature sealed the deal form me . He was very reassuring insisting on doing only what was necessary and relevant to me and my body. I don’t know too many people in the world with such honesty and integrity.
