"From someone who has always had large (too large) breasts it's such a relief to feel the way I am." "If you are considering a breast reduction and want to talk with a knowledgable, experienced, talented and friendly surgeon then in my experience Dr Taylor would be a brilliant choice...." "If I feel this good with expanders, I can't imagine how good I will feel and look with implants, soon my journey will come to an end."

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Great experience , lovely surgeon

Fantastic, I had breast implants removed and lift. Through the whole experience Dr Taylor was fantastic, she gave me realistic expectations and plenty of advise, I felt well informed before and after the procedure. She has a great team, and I was well looked after in the hospital. Dr Taylor is kind and empathetic, and a great surgeon I am very happy results.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Love the results! Dr Kim gave me my 'wish' breasts.

Dr Kim gave me exactly what I asked for 'natural' looking sporty breasts. She restored my breasts to their pre-breastfeeding fullness and I could not be happier with the results. (I did take a 'wish' photo of another woman to my consultation and my end results are extremely close to this photo). Upon my first consultation I felt completely comfortable with Dr Kim; so much so I cancelled an...

Progress Perfect!! - Richmond, AU

I wanted to wait to provide my review as with this type of surgery results can and will change over time. It has nearly been a year since my Breast augmentation surgery With Dr Kim Taylor and if I wrote a review at the time I was over the moon with service, call back, professionalism and with the overall results from the surgery. I always had someone I could contact at the rooms if not Kim herself. I would have to say I'm even more happy now with the results than early on, the process was seamless and the expectations for long term that Kim provided were very accurate. So, thank you Kim and Kasey for your help and time I really appreciate all you've done.

At 20, I Made the Breast Decision of my Life (Breast Reduction Story)

Dr. Taylor was absolutely lovely. She was so friendly and put me at ease straight away. She was very upfront and clear about what would happen (the type of technique, which was anchor), the possible consequences (not being able to breastfeed) and what the result would look like. I'm very, very happy with everything Dr. Taylor and her staff have done.

10h/28h Second Time Doing a Reduction! All done. So happy

I found Kim via online search for Melbourne surgeons. It was my personal choice that I knew I was going to feel more comfortable seeing a female. I felt very confident in her abilities from the first meeting. I met with another female surgeon just to be sure and for me they were worlds apart in terms of their approach. Kim really listened to me and answered all of my questions even when I was repeating myself over and over! I was very scared of the procedure and even on surgery day I cried and Kim was super supportive and professional. All the staff at ARC have been phenomenal with all the dealings I have had there. Very discreet and approachable. However by far the best thing has been the result. At the time of writing this I am 2 weeks post op and I'm healing so well. I actually didn't think I could get such a great result. They look round, perky and very natural. Almost like I've stepped back in time to having the breasts I would have had at 15! From someone who has always had large (too large) breasts it's such a relief to feel the way I am. I'm ridiculously happy with my choice of surgeon for what was a terrifying decision to make. Like most people here I just wish I had done it sooner.

Finally a Reality After 10yrs of Dreaming!! - Richmond, AU

I went into my 1st consultation with Dr Kim Taylor feeling nervous, apprehensive & a little excited. By the end of the consultation I knew I was going to have the surgery! Not only did Kim make me feel relaxed & comfortable, but I had complete faith in her capability & confidence that she was surgeon I wanted to operate on me. Kim advised that my implants would be best under the muscle, clearly explained what type of implant I should have, & gave sound reasons as to why. Kim allowed me plenty of time to look at & feel implants as well as the opportunity to use the implants to figure out what size I'd like to go with. Kim (& her personal assistant Kasey) were lovely to deal with, patient with my questions & made me feel totally at ease not only with the decision I'd made, but literally being wheeled into the operating theatre as well. I would (& have) recommend Dr Kim Taylor to anyone considering having breast augmentation surgery.

And So the Journey Begins - Melbourne, AU

Dr Kim Taylor is professional yet friendly and approachable and couldn't have made my husband and I more welcome. We didn't feel rushed or a nuisance when we asked some probably odd or silly questions, we just felt at ease. I left the appointment confident of my choice, aware of the procedure and with all my concerns and questions answered having been very nervous prior to the consultation. I'm thrilled that I've found a surgeon I feel I can trust and someone who understands my wishes and concerns. Procedure now booked and confirmed. I'm VERY excited!!

Kim's Surgery Changed my Life - Melbourne, AU

My journey started with breast cancer at the end of 2014. My life was turned upside down. It was determined that it would be in my best interest to have a mastectomy so that is how I met the gorgeous Kim Taylor in early 2015. Kim is such a caring person and I felt comfortable with her immediately. The mastectomy of my right breast involved Diep flap surgery and liposuction to the left breast,...
