5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Progress Perfect!! - Richmond, AU

I wanted to wait to provide a review as with Breast surgery most say that you don't know the outcome for up to 12mths. After the surgery I was extremely happy with the results, but wanted to make sure more long term the results were exactly what I wanted. It has nearly been that for me and I could not be happier, the predictions that my surgeon stated were so accurate and true. I truly would...

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

At 20 years of age, I decided I needed a breast reduction. I was a 14 JJ (Australian and UK sizes) and I went down to a 14 DD. I am now 3 months post op exactly. I researched lots of different surgeons and decided on Dr. Kim Taylor. I didn't have to wait very long at all, and am very happy with the result.

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

Hi everyone. Long time lurker here. Ok so my story is the same as everyone's regarding having huge breasts since very young etc etc. The only difference being that 15 years ago I had liposuction only on my breasts and it removed 900mls in total and took me from a H to a E. At the time I was in my 20's was worried about scarring and potential for breast feeding etc so a full reduction was just...

Breast Implant Removal and Breast Reduction - Melbourne, AU

After 12 months of research and working out if I wanted new implants, no implants or back to my natural self I went under the knife on the 4 July 16. I has now been 1 week later and I could not have been happier. So the reason why I wanted my implants out - Approximately 13 years ago after breastfeeding two children I was left a AA cup with chicken fillets. So off I popped to Thailand and had...

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

I have always wanted to get my breasts enlarged, (as a small C cup). Then I breastfed my 2 children & what little boob I had all but disappeared! My once perky little boobs were saggy & empty looking. I knew then it was something I DEFINITELY wanted done! After years of always having more important things to spend my money on, & talking myself out of surgery due to fear, I...

And So the Journey Begins - Melbourne, AU

Having had a lover hate relationship for so many years with my breasts, I finally decided enough was enough. After months of research I made an apt to see Dr Kim Taylor for an initial consultation. I have decided to proceed with 300cc implants under the muscle (I'm 5ft 11"). I am delighted with my choice of Surgeon, implant and practice. Wow....after 2 decades of hating my breasts,...

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,...

Got Rid of the Old Ones! - Melbourne, AU

My old implants (saline) were not as perky when originally put in 17 years ago. They had shrunk and certainly didn't have as much saline in them as i had started out! So Dr Kim Taylor suggested popping in some new and improved ones, and i absolutely LOVE them! It's now been 2 years since having them re-done, and i still go back for a check up each year as Kim wants to make sure everything is...

26 Year Old Breast Enlargement. Melbourne, AU

I have never been satisfied with my breast size from a young age. Dr Taylor was informative and is a great plastic surgeon. People always give me compliments on how natural they are. I am now able to easily fill out tops and dresses that I never could before. Most importantly I feel beautiful naked, and it has given me a new sense of confidence in my body.

Personal Statement

"I am passionate about excellence in plastic surgery, and my goal is to achieve the best possible surgical outcome for every one of my patients. I believe it is vital to develop a strong rapport with my patients focusing on their reconstructive and cosmetic goals, to achieve their desired results".
